  • The FotoMerchant site has certainly helped me make an income through Sales, portfolio display and contact facilities in a professional looking and functioning website. I am currently doing less photography and am more involved with the family business currently, so am seeking to reduce the monthly cost or change to a more simpler website for the reason of just wanting to try something new and different. I should mention Support form the site was always excellent whenever i needed assistance.

  • So far so good with Fotomerchant,no complaints.My website is still in it’s infancy and on each occasion I’ve hit a snag I’ve been given excellent help from the support team.One item,however,is the limited amount of ‘themes’.I am currently using the Stockholm one which I’m quite happy with but I would like to play around a bit.They say a few are ‘coming soon‘ but they don’t seem to appear. Overall though,quite happy.

  • I find Fotomerchant meets my needs.

    I’m retired and photography is just a hobby but I make enough cash from selling images, prints etc to pay for pro lenses, bodies etc.

    The website is just a convenience to refer friends, relatives etc . I’ve only had about 6 enquiries over about as many years to purchase images directly from the site so not a commercial proposition for me. If I was serious I would get onto social media and spread myself around more J

  • I actually did quite a bit of research before I went with Fotomerchant, but that was a couple of years ago. At the time, they were the only one that had what I wanted: a clean/modern ascthetic to their template collection, a shopping cart feature for my clients and an automated delivery of purchased images for print or digital. I wanted to upload my work and not fuss with too much client interaction afterwards. Prints orders have looked great and digital downloads are processed quickly/easily.

    I can honestly say I have been very pleased with them for all of the aspects I was looking for, so yes, I would recommend it.

  • To be honest for my style of photography I couldn't say I would recommend it. If you were a wedding or event photographer then perhaps it would be ideal, however for landscape photography / fine art style images it is limited.

    Direct Fulfilment options for panoramic images and media options are very limited in my opinion. Plus normally you would sign the prints so it isnt really an option. For event photographers it appears to be fine.

    Self fulfilment is ok, but very labor intensive to set up properly (hence why my cart is currently switched off).

    The flexibility in layouts is pretty limited and its hard to get exactly what you want.

    Support is reasonable and being Australian based is why I initially went for it.

    I personally think that most would be better off with their own word press site using either a free or paid theme.

    I am currently doing just that, about to invest in a premium word press theme and integrate plug ins for ecommerce etc.

  • I actually wouldn't recommend fotomerchant. The website is clunky, And it is expensive for what you get. They do offer custom designed websites, but there are no examples that you can see. The store/ ordering section takes a long time to setup but works well.

  • I am very happy with FotoMerchant as a website platform and builder. It was very easy to get started and their customer service is excellent. Their responses to my queries when I was setting it up were very quick and they were always very helpful. I looked at Wix and at Zenfolio before deciding on FotoMerchant as they were photographers designing it for photographers and I liked the lay out and how easy it was to use one of their templates to make my website. I also like the fact that my images are fully protected on line and cannot be clicked on and saved as an image (the image comes out black if you do that) Also I can upload my large file print ready JPEG and the website saves a smaller file for display so I do not need to make a smaller set of images for web use. A local private firm wanted to charge me in excess of $4000 NZD to build a website for me so being able to subscribe to FotoMerchant and do it myself was so much more affordable and gave me greater creative control over how I wanted things to look, also the fact that I can go in and modify things at an instant without having to rely on someone else to do it for me is great and I can do this from any computer or even my iPad Now I just need to sell some prints :)

  • I would heartily recommend Fotomerchant. They provide an amazing service. If you need support, they are very responsive, and their support has remained highly consistent over the years.

    Their CMS is easy to use. Yes there are a few concepts that you need to learn, but that’s not that difficult. So setting up and/or modifying your website is relatively easy.

    All of the processes for handling orders, be it self fulfilled or via a laboratory work and work well.

    I couldn’t see myself using an alternative.

  • In a nutshell I wouldn't recommend Fotomerchant at all. They have a small number of designs available and more importantly don't appear to do any work to update the services offered at all. It is missing a lot of features that I would really like and they don't respond on their Facebook group to requests from people hosting through them. The only reason I have my site with them at all is the integration with Nulab.

    Flag
  • They have been pretty good and I like the features. Their support usually replies within a day (I think they are in Australia), and there haven’t been many technical glitches that I can remember over the past year. I’ve been switching over to doing my own fulfillment this year, but not because of their quality (which has been great) but just because I’m doing more canvas work. Wish they had a few more options for site templates, but other than that, I’d recommend them.

    Flag
  • I’d recommend it if you’re a full time business with a huge turn around. I purchased mine purely to create client galleries and to sell prints on there. Unfortunately, their delivery pricing is through the roof. This turned me off and I will be looking elsewhere next year.

    Flag
  • I absolutely would recommend Fotomerchant if you are a photographer. I am not very tech savvy but didn’t have any problems building it, it’s very user friendly, online support is great, you can add or delete easily without having to rely on someone else, very reasonably priced. I don’t use all the functions it offers but you can pretty much run your business including financials etc from it.

    Flag
  • They offer reasonable pricing with a lot of upgrade options and have great customer support which is paramount for making changes and or updates to your site and address'.

  • I definitely recommend it. I trialled many and found fotomerchant best suit my needs especially in the Australian market.

  • Have been for a few years now, at first it was relatively basic.

    I had hoped it would become more like WIX. but have since grown used to it and do like what it can offer.

    Maybe not as much customization as others, but it has many great features.

    I would definitely recommend it, though I haven't really seen many others that can do everything it can and more.

  • I created my website back in 2011when it was Photomerchant, before it morphed into Fotomerchant and updated my theme last year. I'm currently building a replacement self-hosted (InMotion) site with WordPress and Themify (Ultra).

    So, some thoughts as a long-term user of PM/FM:

    Cons

    1. limited themes (5 I think) 2. outdated look for themes 3. yearly subscription fee 4. commission on every purchase 5. Restricted to FM printer if using direct fulfilment, so prohibitive expensive delivery fees for international order

    Pros

    1. Excellent cart system and easy to set up (main reason I went for FM) 2. Can choose self or direct fulfilment for Cart 3. Great for wedding photographers, which I'm not 4. Everything is included for a photographer, which other platforms have split out and charge 'extra' for as 'plugins'. For example, watermarking, right-click disable, social media sharing, cart, etc. 5. FM is great for photographers that aren't tech savvy as relatively easy to set up

    Would I recommend FM? I'd say yes, for a wedding photographer but read the fine print for their charges.

  • Fotomerchant has been great. I started using them since my printer was able to process orders through them. Unfortunately, my original printer went out of business a few years ago. I'm in the process of looking for a new website, which will probably take me away from fotomerchant since they are not able to link to my current priter...Millers.

  • I have been using them for almost 9 years and couldn’t be happier. I receive regular compliments on my website and have had clients tell me that part of the reason they booked with me was due to how professional it looks. It is very easy to use and customise and I can’t picture my self ever changing from them.

    Flag
  • I’d recommend it to anyone. It’s simple to use and has some good features. I actually don’t use the galleries section because it’s very limiting and does not allow clients to download images etc. for this I have a link to shoot proof. The blog is also limiting in the sense of I’d say ‘advanced features’ like archiving posts etc. But the website section of fotomerchant is great, and overall I’m happy for the features for the price.

    Flag
  • I do use fotomerchant and would highly recommend it for anyone wanting a photography website.

    It is Australian and has excellent backup service and I believe is reasonably priced.

    Flag
  • I would recommend fotomerchant since it’s fairly easy to set everything up especially the galleries. For a beginner, it definitely is easy to use. The only disadvantage I would say is I’d like to see more customizable themes in the future. The unlimited photos and bandwidth is awesome compared to others. Pricing is reasonable even though I’d like to see some of the higher plans come down a little bit on price however.

    Flag
  • I use Fotomerchant. It's an easy process for me and for the clients for viewing and purchasing. I would recommend it ... especially as the order once selected and paid for then goes directly to the nominated address by the purchaser. It take a lot of the leg work out for me.

    I do a lot of childcare and kinders so I find the parents like this method as it is user friendly and basic and they get their images within a few days.

    Flag
  • I have been using Fotomerchant for a couple of years now. I have found it easy to set up and change and adding photos is relatively easy. Just recently though I have found out that the website is not secure, I questioned Fotomerchant about this and they reckon its not problem because if anyone wants to purchase an image of minute care redirected to another secure site. I guess thats right.

    Flag
  • I would recommend using fotomerchant. I've been using it for over 3 years now.

    It is really simple to navigate and to create a handsome looking website/portfolio. I'm currently using fotomerchant 2 as the 3rd version (new themes) and pricing plan is too expensive for me at this stage.

    The direct fulfillment and self fulfillment option for print making is definitely one of the greatest parts about fotomerchant. The process is made much easier, and you can have the option for both direct and self fulfillment in any same gallery.

    I would like to be able to tweak the design of my page, as the ability to change parts of the 'theme' are quite restricting. If I had better knowledge of html and web design I would definitely change a few components of the design.

    Flag
  • It is easy enough to use but there are a few features missing. Unfortunately I’m yet to find a photography/portfolio template that covers absolutely everything I need without spending a fortune!

    For the cost of the Fotomerchant subscription and its ease of use I would recommend it.

    Flag
  • I've had Fotomerchant for quite some time now. I've been happy with it, a little pricey but very user friendly. I can quickly create a gallery for clients to view photos. I tried to build several other sites before I went with them and found this to be the easiest to build. I can be somewhat challenged when it comes to this but I seemed to be able to wrap my head around the navigation. At some point I'll probably look into either tweaking this one for a more updated loo to investigating another to see what's out therek...not sure what they've added as far as templates but I'll eventually be looking into this or possibly another site.

  • I use Fotomerchant for my photography hobby.

    I’ve been using the site for a few years and I was probably in the first lot of clients when they launched.

    I initially set it up because I was taking sports photos for my son’s school and club teams and needed a portfolio style of website that I could set up based on games or seasons. A couple of things that were really good and helped me make a decision on Fotomerchant were:

    1. Based in Australia, on Australian servers 2. I could set up a Portfolio website 3. I could offer a secure access with passwords to portfolios 4. I could offer freebie download’s to Facebook for kids 5. I could offer a range of photographic pricing and printing if parents wanted to go down that path 6. The cost of using Fotomerchant was pretty reasonable for a hobby activity 7. It was easy to set up the site, I’m average on the computer skills so that was a big plus 8. The team at Fotomerchant are always really prompt when I ask questions (and I have asked a few over the years)

    There’s lots of features I don’t take advantage of, like metadata etc, it’s all there if you need/want to explore these things.

  • Probably Fotomerchant is more suitable for the professional photographers who sell their work from the website. They seem to have all the infrastructure and connections for this. I am not a professional photographer and therefore am not looking to sell my photographs. No doubt I could find a cheaper way to display them, but I am happy with the site. It is professional, and local, and I find it easy to use and the support is good.

    Flag
  • I have been using Fotomerchant for a while and overall its pretty easy to use and help is fairly easily sourced when required. I did have limitations when putting the site together i.e. fonts, backgrounds which couldn't be amended through fotomerchant, fortunately I have a friend whose a web designer that amended the code to suit.

    My main concern is the lack of traffic i.e. I haven't had a heap of sales although not blaming this on fotomerchant (more my own marketing) it would be good if they could assist with this side a little more.

    Flag
  • I started using them just after the company started, mainly because it gave me total control over my site to make changes whenever I wanted to without paying someone else to make them. For my purpose they are good. I run 2 sites in one , an archive site & a portfolio site so I probably have more content than most people would. The mobile friendly templates are great, images look good and load quickly. Most of my clients view my site from mobile devices. The management of sites is relatively easy to use, a few little quirks such as not being able to load one image to multiple galleries. Also text isn’t it’s strongest suite, but then it’s mainly aimed at photos and nothing so hard to make it impossible. I still would like to see a site adopted a node based structure as I feel the management of the site would become far easier for the creator to see what’s going on and to make changes.

  • Fotomerchant is a great site, it’s very easy to upload files and maintain the layouts. It is also very simple to set it up for prints or digital sales. They have an option to direct fulfill orders which are sent straight to a commercial printer (their own or you can enter details of yours).

    I haven’t updated my website for 2 years now so I have dropped to the lowest package of $19 per month.

    I often consider how long I will be happy to pay a fee for a ‘portfolio’ website, perhaps it would’ve been best to start a website from scratch.

    Either way I can’t fault fotomerchant, it’s a great platform for a photography website.

  • I’m using fotomerchant. Have been since it was Photomerchant. Works well, was selling Preschool photos with it, given that away.. Sales system works well. Although Self Fulfilment is not available on lower plans, only ever used self fulfilment. Postage on small orders via lab direct is a killer.

  • I’m in my second year using this platform and I really like it. It’s super user friendly. I had minimal experience with WordPress themes and I found the process incredibly easy. The customer service group is also pretty fantastic. I only wish there were more templates to choose from. The ones they have are great though.

    Flag
  • I do recommend it. When I was shopping for a provider, my main focus was digital download service. At that time the unlimited storage was a big draw too. As far as print service, I use their attached printer who prints and sends the prints to the customer directly. If you don't want to pay for that service, you can set it up that you handle printing and customer delivery. I think they are a great service provider. I have had no reason to shop around since becoming a customer.

  • I would recommend them. Galleries are easy to post and templates look nice. I would however like to be able to post videos too which currently are not accepted.

  • I would recommend FotoMerchant for people beginning their websites it’s easy to use and set up and they have easy to follow video guides to help you set up everything, they don’t have a lot of selections of themes like squarespace, smugmug or wordpress, also for me as I live in Australia I thought I would use an Australian company for my website. If you want to sell you photos they also have e-commerce integrated into the site which can be switched on or off.

  • I wanted a certain style and the one I have chosen is possible in FotoMerchant. I have set this up myself - I had messed around with some of the other brands but decided this was the one for us. I am not very computer literate so I had a few problems. This was no problem really as FotoMerchant answered promptly all my questions. I would recommend FotoMerchant but it does depend on what you want the site look like. I think there are four or five different plans with this product. The video instructions are excellent.

    Flag
  • It isn’t 100% how I would like it to be, however I don’t think my usage is terribly well suited to any portfolio building site. After comparing a few options, I found Fotomerchant to be the best solution for me and so far am happy with it as a starting point for my website.

    Flag
  • We have found FotoMerchant to be an easy and contemporary website platform and support has been good, however it is quite limited in design with only a small amount of templates. We have found the cost of the platform quite good considering the partnerships they have with printing companies, however if you don't need this service I would recommend other companies.

    Flag
  • It has its limitations. I think I need to get someone to help me set up the details so that they display properly in a google search. At the moment it doesn't work.

    It's user-friendly though which is a good thing. Easy to set up. I wish it had more themes etc. I'm too busy really to spend any time on it at the moment though.

  • If your looking to build a a photography web site it's got some good templates to work with to make a smart looking web site and if you have some web development skills that I don't, there is a lot more you can do. They have been a little slack lately as far as new development's tho. For me it dose everything I need for my motorsport photography and the customers have two ways for payments with PayPal and Stripes credit card system, talking to customers both work well.

    Flag
  • I would recommend it if you're looking for something clean and easy to use. They also have tutorials to help with building the website, which is great! I haven't used this to its utmost potential and so I can't really comment on most of the features but the uploading of images have been great and the quality is impressive.

    I do have an issue with how the word processor works as it is a bit clunky at times and i find that setting up slideshows doesn't always work.

    I chose FotoMerchant predominantly because they were based in Australia and so, if i were to use their store for prints, I know the customers would be getting manageable postage and handling as well as having a contact within Australia.

    Flag
  • Yes & No !

    Yes easy enough to use, but has some annoying ‘issues’ and No because it actually works out quite expensive

    So much so I will probably move when my subs are due

    Flag
  • I would definitely recommend it, now it also depend on what products the photographers want to sell. Before choosing Fotomerchant, I tried Smugmug and Squarespace, they are all really interesting but all offer something different. I really liked the products that Smugmug were offering especially mugs but I couldn't sell digital files ( or I never found the way to do it ) and this was pretty important for me. I forgot why Squarespace didn't work for me but overall Fotomerchant was more interesting, one thing that I like with them is that, even if they have contract with printing laboratories, they give us the possibility to use our own or favourite laboratory.

    Most of those websites offer free trials and I think it is really important to spend time trying them before choosing the one.

    Flag
  • I would recommend it.

    The interface is easy to use, good customer service, lots of options to personalise your site through pages, galleries and blogs. There are a number of themes to choose from and direct html edit if you are up to that.

    The direct fulfilment of print products is excellent, but you can choose to fulfil directly if you want.

    Flag
  • I’ve been using Fotomerchant for a little while now. And while I do like some aspects of it, I feel that the cut they take for their direct filament options is a little high. It’s easier to setup and get running. Note they do not yet support Https yet apart from when you go to checkout

    Unfortunately for me I have not embraced everything that is available to me, in respect to the tools provided.

  • In general their site and tools are easy to use and I like the end product. As a service they provide great customer service and provide excellent tutorials and Q&As so most of the things you need to know are readily available. But if you do have to contact them for assistance they provide a prompt service and great customer support. The products available for sale to my customers certainly meets my needs in every way. The printed products are excellent and I have had great feedback from my customers.

    The thing people need to be aware of from the beginning is the cost. Obviously there is an ongoing fee to set up a site on their product. But there is also a commission per sale and add onto that the PayPal transaction fee and up to 15% of your sale can go in fees alone. Then there are the print and postage fees and finally your profit margin. All told, if you want to make any money then your end retail price looks quite high to consumers. So you either make more margin and sell fewer images/prints (which is the way to go for fine art images) or run low margin and sell higher quantities (which suited my event photography business).

    The million dollar question is it worth it? For me it was as I would have to proces and upload large volumes of images and the Fotomerchant site meant I didn't spend any time at all handling the sales and getting images printed and posted or digital images uploaded to a dropbox folder for customers to download. The sales and revenue collection is all automated through the Fotomerchant product. Is that worth sacrificing profit for? For me it was but only when selling high volumes regularly.

    You will see that I am using the past tense as I am winding up my photography business so will shut down my Fotomerchant site when the account year ends. For smaller volume sales for any future assignments I will manage sales in person and keep an online presence via social media.

  • Fotomerchant, is the best Website i have come across. when i was researching a site for Kilaphotos I had a few important issues i needed to adhere to:-

    1. as a photographer I spend a LOT of time editing and uploading photos i needed a site i could upload mid range size photos quickly and easily. ----- Extremely easy to upload 25% of the edited photo this doesn't change the look of the photo on FM and is quick . 2. I didn’t want the hassle of receiving orders printing and sending / delivering photos. Fotomerchant takes care of all this, once you have set up your parameters SIZE, SALE PRICE etc. the photos are sent directly to the client and very quickly.

    1. I needed a site that took care of receiving payments and paying them straight into a bank account. Fotomerchant take care of receiving the payments and don’t realise the photos until its been cleared and keep you informed along the process, including when the order is at any time, there is also a paper trail in your account with them.

    1. the photos had to be not good but perfect and had to let me know when photos were not up to this standard When I started with them I uploaded 100% size photos and with an old out-of-date internet it took days and was frustrating. The support team contacted me and pointed out the best way is to upload 50% or even 25% size photos, they have a process that checks every photos you are selling to the customer, if a photo doesn’t meet there very strict requirements they let you know, including cropping. the order is not cancelled, you are notifies and there’s a simple process to upload a high res photos and ok a crop.

    1. There had to be a 'help desk available with a response time of 24 hours. The help desk is extremely helpful and in Melbourne AUSTRALIA

    I would recommend it to any one wanting to set up a Photography website with no Hassel.

  • I am totally useless when it comes to computer stuff! So I found this platform relatively easy to get around and something I can add to as I please.

    The selling part of it is however not quite as straight forward and is also quite expensive. Fotomerchant take a cut and then Pay Pal takes another bit out so it soon becomes expensive.

    I’m actually even thinking about dropping the selling part of it and getting people to contact me directly?

  • I tried a few different website builders and preferred Fotomerchant fo photography. It is more user-friendly and the layouts are better.

  • A+, super easy to use, quite customisable in looks, and lots of features (depending on your chosen subscription level). Reliable. Support is very good. The Lightroom-extension for uploading is brilliant.

  • I would. It's pretty easy to use. No technical issues. I'm not one to update my site as often as I should and probably don't utilize all the features but it was easier to use than wix and a heck of a lot easier than WordPress.

  • For the enquire I spent a considerable amount of time looking at this and also read few reviews. At the end of the day it’s a combo of user friendly data allowance and most importantly fees
