Heya I’ve been looking to add some e-commerce to a wordpress blog and been looking at various solutions (paid and free).
I first checked out Foxycart as Chris has championed it around here, and I am very interested in using it. I’m aware that foxycart is free during development, however could you use foxycart for free as long as you do not need credit transactions?
What I am looking for is having the "cart" function of adding multiple items, and the checkout process merely send an order email and a confirmation email to the user.
Perhaps another e-commerce solution would better fit my need? Any suggestions on a particular "cart" solution?
Ahhh I see, I kind of thought the monthly cost was associated with processing credit cards, but I guess I am mistaken. I looked into the foxycart solution and understand now the monthly recurring costs…basically your paying for not having a headache!
Its nice to be able to be able to use it during the building stage of the site too.
You could use FoxyCart for that with the Purchase Order payment method, but it wouldn’t be free. It would be Foxy, though ;)
