We're looking at an initial release price of $100-$150.

Will you put an option to accept Contributors?

That is definitely something we are looking at.

Please, NO categories!
Antiquated and time consuming.

Adding images to lightboxes is much better way to organise work.

 ;D  I haven't heard anyone say that they would like to have categories.

No worries!

I personally like having categories on my own site. Especially when you can create your own. That way you can organize things into sets, styles or anything that makes it easier to organize your files.

When we first sat down, we had talked about a different way of categorizing images. With all of the negative feedback about categories, it's been kind of back-burner, but part of it was already created as an optional feature.

I suppose that it makes more sense to finish the feature and allow people to make individual decisions.

It would be great if there is a one time download or a BUYOUT option for logos and selling one time files.

Have you been talking to buyers of images?

It really doesn't matter too much what sellers ( us ) want, but what do the people who will be putting money into our pockets ( hopefully) want.

What the sellers want matters VERY much indeed! There's too many e-commerce packages out there that don't do everything I want. I could have the perfect Seller's website, but I would have to incroporate 3 different systems to achieve it.

What the buyers want is: good prices, good imagery, good keywording, good web-design,... And THAT is down to the seller, not the backend-system.

Obviously, a differentiation between RM / RF. And very important:
I would like to see a good shopping system for physical products, particularly for Fine Art print sales:
- different sizes
- different print materials (canvas, paper, c-type, etc...)
- an edition number for each image AND how many prints have already sold in the respective edition (= attracting buyers if the edition is to be "closed" or unavailable soon)

From a web-design point-of-view: It'd be nice if it was based on Wordpress (easy to incorporate within a wordpress blog, or Wordpress FlickR plugins for example)

We're talking to as many people as possible for as aspects of the business as we can get our hands on.

I would have to agree that buyers wants are fairly simple:
  • Good pricing
  • Good search
  • Good images

Sellers want a bit more.  :P

What's the percentage progress update?

Excited much.

If I read good reviews, I might choose you over CMSA.

We've decided that it's not worth putting all of that effort into producing a product for sale when KonaHawaii is going to be releasing a very similar, free, product in the near future.

Thanks to everyone for their interest and good luck to KonaHawaii!

Not sure if taking a defeat so easy is going to get you far in business in general. If things were easy everyone would do it. Just make sure you have a USP so you can still sell your product.

This would actually be my third business. I saw a need and made a move to fill it, but it's hard to compete with free.

You can still sell it maybe below 100$ or something a price that others would still buy it instead of using the free ones, but still a quality.

I'm sure that there are still buyers.

Just like forum scripts, there a lot of free quality forum scripts, but VBulletin is still in the business.
