Took some photos for a charity event last night and need somewhere to host watermarked images and allow them to purchase originals online.....does such a thing exist?

Are you wanting the site to actually do fulfilment automatically? (ie. produce & send the prints)

If not I used idealgallery.co.uk many years ago and it's really easy to use/setup (uses paypal)
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Loads of options

Smugmug
TheimageFile
Zenfolio
Clikpic

All of those allow them to order direct to the lab. A few allow you to do orders yourself. Most have a free trial you could make use of, though I find you need that time simply to work out how the interface works.

Wordpress has loads of bolt ons that will do the job if you have a Wordpress site. Most of the bigger hosting companies also have ecommerce options available with he hosting.

Thanks guys...all i really need it to do is to display the images with an option to buy the unwatermarked file enabling them to use as they think fit. I will look at the suggestions I really don't want too much cost involved as its a charity organisation and my time is also freely given.

If it is a quick and simple job just get a Dropbox account. Put the watermarked images in a public folder along with a pdf that has costs and ordering details on it
