I’ve done it again! Got myself in at the deeper end of web design. I am a print designer, who now and then builds websites for people, but generally speaking only small ones that are generally geared up for looking nice but not very . . . . dynamic. I found myself in a meeting with a friend who has asked me to build them an online shop. Somebody (and it must have been me as I was the only other person there at the time) answered “of course, absolutely, not a problem”. It really didn’t seem that difficult at the time. So now I find myself turning to all you knowledgeable guys to offer some words of wisdom and some constructive advice. Corrosive your BookingBug solution you offered the last time I was in a similar mess was priceless! thanks Anyway the client is an artist / photographer, they are looking for a fairly simple site that displays their artwork and offers online sales. Sales of either postcards, Posters, Framed prints for each piece (they have already outsourced a suitable printer). There would be four different categories of art (nature, people, B&W etc ) and about 12 designs in each. I figure I have three options: Option 1 - Build the site using an editor (tried and tested for me) and use an add on / plug in shop. In the past I’ve looked at Ecwid, which is lovely and simple to use, but not very attractive once live. Option 2 - I host my client’s sites with Business Catalyst, I could use the web commerce package and build a shop this way. BC is good but maybe a little overkill for this scenario. Option 3 - Build a site using Shopify. The problem I have with this option, is although it makes sense, it has transaction fees, I don’t feel entirely happy at coding in which case the client could just build the site themselves. Plus it’s a little pricey. So I’m looking for a bit of general advice, and any other options at my disposal.
