first time poster here at the Photography Stack Exchange. My question relates to a self hosted eCommerce option for a photography website. First, I'll give a few details that may better help understand what I am looking for.
I have a client who is a freelance photographer. I am a WordPress developer. I initially created her site using a heavily modified Photocrati theme about a year and a half ago. At the time she did not wish to include any eCommerce functionality. From the start I noticed a log of buggy behavior with the Photocrati theme, and created many code work-arounds to achieve what I wanted with regards to design and functionality. The client now wishes for the added functionality of eCommerce, with the ability to have private password protected galleries for her clients. I've began working some with the site, and have now found that the Photocrati theme is no longer functioning correctly. That being said, I think it is time to rebuild the site from scratch not using a pre-built theme.
I'm looking for a self hosted eCommerce solution that will work on sub-domains, and also be non Flash as Flash is not supported on iOS devices. The portfolio/informational site will be a WordPress site and the idea is to include the eCommece portion of it at a sub-domain. The eCommerce software would not need to actually send the orders to be printed, just allow the user to select print size and quantity and of course pay for their order.
If I've left anything unclear, please don't hesitate to ask. I'll look forward to some great replies!
