I have been looking into creating a site that incorporates multiple area artists' work into a centralized shopping experience. Basically, there would be an option to purchase the original and an option to purchase a print.
I am looking for a cart/merchant processing solution that follows through to a local printer of my choice (based on [quarterly?] renegotiations based on through-put and vendor performance). Although I am familiar with online sites that process prints (and have their own solutions) it would be preferred if I could use a local.
Which solutions allow for vendor selection? Are these solutions cumbersome in comparison with those sites that you simply upload the pictures and wait for processing? (...and yes, they're pretty decent prints from those sites so assume quality is equal across the board).
