High class problem: need web site ASAP

I have received a large order of photo cards for some corporate gift boxes. The client has specifically requested I include web site contact information on the back of the card. I was planning on a formal web site instead of my Flickr and Etsy sites, but now I find myself in a crunch to get it done and I have been looking at the various services online today. Features I definitely need are:

- custom domain
- e-commerce
- blogging
- private client galleries

SmugMug seems to be the king in this space but I am also looking at Square Space, Red Frame, Zenfolio and Photodeck.

And I missing any great services? And does anyone have feedback on using any of the above for business?

ZenFolio have all of the above, and in the Pentax Price Watch thread, they have a big discount on today.

You can also get up and running pretty quickly with ZenFolio since they have a lot of pre-packaged themes.

After further research, Zenfolio and PhotoDeck are running neck and neck.

I'm rather surprised at how many good services there are out there. I expected to have to write my own site (I'm a web dev), but there's a rich SaaS selection, and $150/yr or so is a whole lot cheaper than the time I'd invest in doing it myself.

I like the look of Photodeck, but I use Web Of Trust (WOT), and it's marked it a spam site. Has anyone used it yet, and if you have, can you tell me what it's like please?

Thank you

I went with Zenfolio, and am happy with it so far.
