I am just starting out and am not making any money yet (but paying out plenty to get started of course). I am very overwhelmed by all the choices for online proofing and sales, but I have yet to find anything that fits my needs. At this point I cannot afford to pay a large amount up front like some companies are asking. It seems like most of the companies I've found want you to pay a set up fee, a yearly or monthly fee, AND on top of that they take a huge commission. I understand taking a fee to process credit cards but some are charging up to 18% of your entire sale (not just your profit) plus other fees.
I am looking for:
-ability to take credit cards and order online
-not be charges a huge chunk of my sales in commission fees
-I want to use my lab (Mpix Pro) because I am very happy with their products
-self fulfillment would be good, but not a must if I can use my own lab
