When speaking with new clients about the content and images for their new website we always caution that it is inappropriate to take images from other websites or places like Google Images. Not only is it inappropriate, it can result in a costly lawsuit from the copyright owner of the images. If you decide to grab an image from the web and use it on your site you can be liable for damages.
So many people believe that if an image is on the web it is fair game to use as they please, this is a mistake. Companies that provide stock photography for use on websites and printed material routinely surf the web looking for copyright violators and will send cease and desist letters with settlement demands for $1000.00 or more per image.
Use caution and common sense, purchase the images from a well-known stock image broker or take the images you need with your camera. If you use an image without permission or a license you are stealing!
Below are some examples of stock image companies you can purchase licensed images from to use on your website or printed material.
Adding ecommerce to your website has become affordable. If you want to sell products on the web on a budget then we have the perfect shopping cart for you. This cart is feature rich allowing you to sell products that are both shipped and downloadable. Items like ebooks and mp3’s can be downloaded after the sale. Take credit cards using your payment gateway and merchant account or use PayPal. Many shipping methods are available including USPS, FedEx and UPS.
Time to stock your store, simply log into the easy to use administration interface and add products, upload photos and descriptions. If you have less than 100 products there is no monthly software cost, if you have more than 100 products there is a small fee paid each month to the software vendor directly (currently less than $20 per month).
The best feature of this cart is that it can be added to any existing website! Please call ABC Web Service to setup a demonstration of the cart. Your new online store can be up and running in as little as one week.
