Wondering what people are doing for online photo sales (smugmug/zenfolio) and how they are integrating it into their website. Or at the least ensuring a smooth transition from site to storefront so the customer has easy browsing.

I'm hiring someone to create a wordpress site/blog for me to use for my portfolio and such. I've got some sport tournaments coming up where I want to push photo sales, hence the need.

Trying to bridge the gap - advice appreciated.

I use SmugMug.

It allows for advanced editing to include adding java scripts and CSS, etc. The customer service is really great, the photolabs are top notch. There are some features I'd like to see improved quicker then the ones they usually decide to upgrade. IE the buy button being extremely small (I figured out a way to add code to change this), the default tab after clicking purchase not being editable, meaning instead of prints showing up downloads show up by default.

I see potential with them so I keep my account with them, and continue to look for other options or ways to edit or add code to make the site more towards my type of sales.

I use SmugMug for the whole website. It's a learning curve to get it the way you want, but there are plenty of forums out there that have coding tips on how to tweak it. And as Eric said, their customer service is TOP NOTCH.

@Eric, Where did you find/What is the code to change the buy button? I have also found people don't really notice that they can buy photos from there.
