Is it possible to create (with out the upgrade) an online store on my website? I was going to use something like Society 6 but read that they keep a % of the commissions and they're allowed to keep your work as long as possible. Ideally I would not like to do that. 

 

I am a graphic designer / illustrator and I would like to sell prints from my website. 

 

If this is possible, what are steps I can take to make this happen? 

 

Any help and advice is appreciated. I'm currently doing my own research on the matter and I thought this place would be good to ask as well seeing as I've created my entire website through pagelines. 

 

Thanks for your time!

Hi,

 

DMS is for Wordpress which has literally thousands of plugins, these plugins usually add amongst other things extra functionality to Wordpress. Some plugins allow you to have a setup a shop on your website.

 

The most commonly used plugins for Wordpress online shops are the following:

 

WooCommerce - http://www.woothemes.com/woocommerce/

JigoShop - http://jigoshop.com/

EDD - https://easydigitaldownloads.com/

 

There are more that you can find by searching the Wordpress plugin repository - http://wordpress.org/plugins/

 

Please bear in mind that all these products are third party extensions for Wordpress. Therefore, we are unable to provide any assistance, you will need to contact the products support and read their documentation.

Because you mentioned you want to sell prints, you could sign up for SmugMug (coupon code: vGSrlGb7FH6Cs). They can host your site, print your stuff, and even withhold taxes if you tell them the rate to collect. If you already have your own print shop, you could setup nearly the same with WP, DMS, and an ecommerce plugin like the ones mentioned. Just offering another angle to consider. I believe Behance and places like that allow you to sell stuff too, but I'm not sure if it's prints.

Excellent, thank you for the response Danny! This is very helpful

This great info too, thanks for the response Clifford! Behance is another option I can look further into. I just have a few questions if you don't mind:

 

1. What did you mean by "withhold taxes if you tell them the rate to collect"? Is this a good thing?

2. What does "WP" "DMS" mean?

It's basically a pre-setup ecommerce solution. WP = WordPress. DMS = PageLines theme
