Firstly I just want to say how useful this site and the forum has been.
I’m in the process of developing a site in asp.net however I am now interested in developing it further by adding an e-commerce feature, such as user accounts, shopping basic and payment options.
I would really appreciate any advice of where to begin with this and which avenue I should go down.
Many ThanksMay 20, 2013 at 7:50 am #135623
Use an off the shelf system – building your own is going to take a long time and is pretty heavy going.May 20, 2013 at 8:14 am #135626
Thanks, I’m looking into migrating to WordPress, not sure of the advantages tho.May 21, 2013 at 2:03 am #135807
You really want to use a e-commerce solution that is already made. Things like security, shipping rates, taxes and payment gateways are a huge undertaking.
Using WordPress your will get a highly customizable and adapatable CMS. E-commerce plugins like WooCommerce, WP-Ecommerce or even FoxyCart can help out a ton.May 21, 2013 at 6:19 am #135812
WooCommerce is pretty decent – give it a go, it probably does 90% of what you want.
