Which Ecommerce Solution?

Post by ColinM » Mon Feb 09, 2015 7:15 am

Up until now, I've just used the inbuilt paypal features, but considering taking it a bit further for my next(current) client - a Vineyard/Winery.

1) I'm considering your Webshop Plus George (Navaldesign) - what are the advantages and am I correct in saying the final step would still have to be done externally through Paypal, that is, not integrated into the sight.

2) The other option is either a Paypal Express Checkout.

3) Another is Paypal's Embedded option https://developer.paypal.com/docs/class ... -curl-etc/

and finally

4) Paypal's Pro Hosted Solution that gives you a fully integrated seamless payment experience with what I believe is fully tailored same look and feel web site and HTTPS.

Any suggestions/tips please?
Yours truly

Hi RZ - actually I did, and forgot about it (too much going on in my life as usual :roll: ) - that still requires an external HTTPS to paypal right?

and which one do I buy? Do each of those include the shopping suite? and once purchased, I can reuse it across projects (clients)?

it supports paypal and pay-on-delivery
only pay-on-delivery requires php, if you don't use it you don't need php nor a database
the essentials version is the same as the suite, the last one includes more extensions for aesthetic/cosmetic purposes (kinda designers whims)
for further questions do not hesitate to contact me

OK cheers RZ - do you have any demos of each one?

the best demo is the real shopping itself ;)
feel free to play with this simple demo: http://www.magnawebstudio.com/shop/test (for your security, the PayPal option has been disabled).

Thanks again RZ - can you set it up to remove individual items from the cart?

Sorry to hijack this thread RZ - @Collin, yes you can. Just try it with RZ's own site and add some extensions to your cart, then at the checkout you can remove what you do not want. :)

Hi Colin. I looked at a few e-commerce solutions to use with WWB, but found George's Webshop Plus was the only one that allowed me to calculate the shipping cost BEFORE going out to PayPal. The Smartcart and Nopcart extensions fail miserably in that respect, as few customers are realistically going to log into PayPal just to know what the shipping charges are. :(

With PayPal Express, if memory serves me correctly, it requires a correctly certificated SSL site, otherwise it 'falls over' during the checkout process, which is why I use standard PayPal as far less hassles.

There is a free javascript cart called Nopercart that allows you to set up shipping but that is a manual html entry for every product listed. Probably one of the best integrated cart solutions I have come across though, with a very sleek (and rapid) checkout.

I have moved onto responsive sites now and use Webshop plus with WWB10 and for the more product laden sites I use Opencart, although the latter ties you to rigid templates that limit you to tweaking colours rather than free design AND you have the added complexity of setting up SQL databases.

should be: the only one <<in the list you tested>> that allowed... etc
otherwise you are meaning that this option is not available in any other e-com solution ;) and fyi the extension i suggested in the link i provided to the op has this option :)
