Recently Black Lion Websites worked on a website that needed an ecommerce solution. I had never set up an ecommerce website before, so I was excited about the challenge and the opportunity to learn. I was pleased to find out that there a lot of tools out there that make setting up an online store pretty easy. I used wordpress for this site and it took some trial and error to figure which plugin was the best choice for what the client’s needs. There are a lot of ecommerce plugins that can be used, and they offer different features and are available for a fairly wide range of pricing. In the end we went with Shopp, which had the right functionality and was the right price for the client. It was fairly easy to set up and configure, and we integrated it with a Paypal payment system which was seamless to integrate with the software. Another popular ecommerce solution is WooCommerce, which we liked but in order to get some additional functionality we had to pay a yearly fee, which we opted not to do.
This was a fun website to work on, and I was surprised at how well-built the ecommerce plugins are. They make setting up an internet shop pretty easy.
