Easily Sell photos, images, digital print etc. using the built-in WordPress gallery feature. Convert your WordPress gallery into a photo store.
WP iSell Photo enhances the functionality of your existing WordPress photo gallery and turns it into an e-commerce photo gallery. It makes photo selling easier. You don't have to maintain another heavy weight photo gallery plugin for your WordPress blog. This in turn should help you maintain a fast loading site.
Since WordPress 2.5 there is a new feature in the WordPress media library that allows you to create a gallery of photos/images and add it to a post/page. Lot of users don't even know about this neat little feature of WordPress. WP iSell Photo plugin will help you convert a built in WordPress gallery into a photo selling platform.
a) Creating a Photo Gallery in WordPress
Create a new post/page on your WordPress Dashboard. There is an option to upload/insert media. Now select the photos/images from your computer and upload them to the media library. As you upload each image you will see a "Gallery" tab which contains those images. Switch to that tab once you are ready to insert the gallery to your current post/page.
There are some options that you can configure for the gallery you just created (under the "Gallery Settings" section).
Finally hit the "Insert Gallery" button and the gallery will be automatically inserted to your current post/page.
If you want to edit the gallery at any time you can always select the gallery (It looks like a rectangular image in the visual editor) and click on the "Edit" option. Alternatively you can also customize the shortcode for the gallery. You need to switch to the "Text" editor to do it. You will see a shortcode similar to the following:
Here ids parameter represents all the images that are currently present in the gallery.
For more information on how to customize the WordPress gallery shortcode please refer to the WordPress Documentation
b) WP iSell Photo Settings
There are some options that you need to configure in the General Settings of the plugin before your site goes live. On your WordPress Dashboard under Settings click on the WP iSell Photo option. It will take you to the Settings page.
c) Creating Buy Now buttons to sell photos
Go to the post/page where you already have an existing gallery embedded. Add an additional
amount parameter to the gallery shortcode and specify the price in it. For example:
[gallery amount="5.00" ids="126,125,124,123,122"]
now each image of the current gallery will have a "Buy Now" button with price 5.00
You can also customize the look and feel of the "Buy Now" button. Simply include a
button parameter in the gallery shortcode and specify the text you want to use for the button. For example:
[gallery amount="3.99" button="Buy it Now" ids="126,125,124,123,122"]
If you want to use an image for the button you can do so by specifying the URL in the
button parameter. For example:
[gallery amount="3.99" button="http://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_buynow_LG.gif" ids="126,125,124,123,122"]
