I was looking for an easy and quick way to sell prints of my photos through my website and blog. I didn’t want to have to set up a whole new portfolio of my images on another website that I’d have to redirect people to, I just wanted the ability to put a Buy Print button next to the images on my existing websites. After some research online I came across Fotomoto:
As they say on their homepage, “Fotomoto is a print-on-demand e-commerce widget that integrates seamlessly into your existing website. Just add our code to your site, sit back, and start making money.”
And it really is that easy, once you’ve signed up and chosen what account type you want, you just paste the HTML code into your blog or website, fine tune the settings on your account and you’re done.
The Fotomoto code cleverly does all the work for you, finding all the photos on your website that are larger than a certain size, that you can specify, and places a Buy Print link next to the photo, like this –
As well as the free option, you can choose from two other plans meaning you pay a monthly fee but less in transaction fees –
– no redirecting to another website
– a European printing HQ for those of us over here!
