“Gone Live….”


gonelive Well, I did it and went live with my ‘photo store’ and the sale of the book’s 1st edition. I used the services of an outfit called bigcartel to build my on-line store. They offer a range of options for building the website, starting with a free version, which I am using, to fancier ones at different monthly rates. Their free version is probably the easiest template I have ever run across. I like the looks of the one I picked, there are a bunch more. The site merges seamlessly with stripe which seems to be a new PayPal competitor. One can also use PayPal, but I gather the check-out procedure for the customer is a bit more complicated. So, although I have a PayPal account, I did not try and buck the system and went with stripe.

    I got the book! It’s a delight to hold something created and nurtured in painstaking detail in this modern ,machine driven, mass produced age. The photos and stories are great too!
