I want to build a site that lets customers buy photos or other art that is uploaded by arts/photographers. I see no way to do this and no other software that can do it. I need to keep startup costs low to free. Basically, I want to host artists that sell stock artwork.
Some sample websites.
Thanks for any info or ideas!
You could achieve this with the multi-store version of KonaKart which however isn't free. In our next version coming out soon, we've introduced a multi-vendor mode which will allow vendors to maintain their own products. If a customer buys multiple products (from different artists) in a single order, the customer sees the shipping charges from the various artists and each artist receives an order containing only his own products. The payment goes to the main store belonging to the administrator who then has to redistribute it to the artists.
Due to the products being digital, they are in the database and can be shipped right away by the program. Is this also possible?
Is this update to the free version or to the pay one?
Is this silver or gold pay?
Yes digital downloads are supported.

Is this free?
Sorry but there is no edit here. I forgot. What does soon really mean?
No it's not free. It's within the Enterprise version of KonaKart and should be available before the end of August.
