In the planning for weeks I have finally got my online shop now up and running.
Using the Esty platform will allow me to expand the shop as needed without being limited to the amount of listing on Squarespace which I use for this website. Like Ebay I am charged per listing.
Over the last few weeks I have been going around in circles on how to present my images to customers. I have settled on shipping orders directly from a professional photo lab based in the UK. The advantage is I can offer limitless images without holding stock myself therefore not having money tied up in stock.
To print images here at home would cost a fortune in equipment, an A3+ printer would cost around £550 for an Epson P600. I can only justify this expense if I were selling enough images and printers need to be used regularly to be kept in good working condition otherwise they dry up.
A week long competition is now running to drive traffic towards my Facebook page, Liking and or sharing my photography page will automatically be entered into the raffle, the competition is limited to UK addresses.
