Purpose

E-commerce site

Description

My very first e-ccomerce site was done with wordpress and wooccomerce.

Back to the main site

Basic features


  • Shopping Cart
  • Product catalogue
  • Woo-commerce
  • Multi-lingual
  • Newsletter and contact form
  • Visual composer
  • Slideshow
go to site

Challenges


  • Permalinks are always a pain when transfering the site
  • In wordpress when trying to use the same database with another site we get the admin locked out
  • Many megamenu plugins are not compatible with specific Wordpress themes

Conclusion


Working with woo-commerce and visual composer its a charm.

Woo-commerce makes it extremely easy to create and organise an e-commerce site in no time

Of course the downside for woo-commerce is suitable for clients with simple needs

To create a dynamic megamenu we need extra plugins and work

Visual composer is very user friendly especially when compared with the(now deprecated?) panels for Drupal(like in my patrio-homa site)

To sum it up perhaps the best option for beginners with e-ccomerce sites
