I am currently with Fine Art America (FAA) which has a fantastic "shopping cart" app for Facebook but not a very nice layout for online portfolios. It does what I want it to do - allows people to very easily purchase my photos and customize their frames, size, paper, etc.
One huge problem I have with this and other popular photo sites that feature the convenient "shopping cart" service is that shipping to Canada is very expensive which increases the price of any order significantly. Consequently this is a big turn off for local buyers.
Unfortunately this is true of all printing services offered by Smugmug, Zenfolio and other popular US based sites that cater only to US based photographers and their buyers in this particular regard. (A reason why I will be cancelling my FAA account and why I will not create a portfolio with Smugmug nor Zenfolio. (Too bad because I really like Zenfolio)
All of these printing and framing services only offer premium international shipping at astronomical prices and some also say that any customs fees are the responsibility of the person ordering the items.
I can't find any services similar to what FAA offers in Canada aside from PosterJack (No photographer portfolio options), Blacks (No photographer portfolio options, only canvas and poster - no framing), etc.
Does anyone know of a "Shopping Cart" service that can do what FAA, Smugmug, Zenfolio but is based in Canada?
