E-commerce tutorial with ProcessWire + Snipcart: your thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Max from Snipcart here!

We just published a full tutorial showing how to use ProcessWire + Snipcart (our dev-first HTML/JS shopping cart platform) to enable e-commerce. It was pretty much my first time playing around with the Apache/MySQL/PHP stack, so I'd love to get some feedback on the demo code. Oh, and also, if you feel like the Snipcart integration could have been done in a different/better way with ProcessWire, let me know!

> Blog post tutorial
> (Very) simple live demo
> GitHub repo

Cheers folks. :)

@maxlab Thanks for posting the tutorial!

I am not familiar with Snipcart's offering. Can it be used for memberships with recurring charges?

Thanks

Rudy

@Rudy thanks for taking the time to check it out! Much appreciated. Always fun to get to learn about new tools and discover their ecosystem/reality. :)

You can actually handle recurring payments & subscription with Snipcart (docs here), but the feature is still in beta. Basically, we only support Stripe, and don't support shipping/discounts yet. We'll try to work on improving the feature by the end of the year most likely!

@Christophe these look helpful! Taking a deeper look soon. Cheers!

Interesting stuff, Max. Am looking for some sort of e-commerce solution down the road.

Will take a look when I have to cross that bridge.

@Marty Walker Looking good! :)

@FrancisChung Let us know if you've got questions, anytime, at geeks@snipcart.com

I have something to discuss for an upcoming e-commerce project. Client has only mentioned about it nothing solid so far. Initially my thoughts went straight to use OpenCart since its already a well-built block for E-Commerce but I am well versed in Processwire than Opencart. So just searching for the options in PW for an e-commerce website. 

I shall send you an email to geeks@snipcart.com

      SnipWire - Snipcart integration for ProcessWire
      Snipcart is a powerful 3rd party, developer-first HTML/JavaScript shopping cart platform. SnipWire is the missing link between Snipcart and the content management framework ProcessWire.
      With SnipWire, you can quickly turn any ProcessWire site into a Snipcart online shop. The SnipWire plugin helps you to get your store up and running in no time. Detailed knowledge of the Snipcart system is not required.
      SnipWire is free and open source licensed under Mozilla Public License 2.0! A lot of work and effort has gone into development. It would be nice if you could donate an amount to support further development:

      Status update links (inside this thread) for SnipWire development

(module just submitted to the PW modules directory) 2020-01-28 -- added Custom Order Fields feature (first SnipWire release version is near!) 2020-01-21 -- Snipcart v3 - when will the new cart system be implemented? 2020-01-19 -- integrated taxes provider finished (+ very flexible shipping taxes handling) 2020-01-14 -- new date range picker, discount editor, order notifiactions, order statuses, and more ... 2019-11-15 -- orders filter, order details, download + resend invoices, refunds 2019-10-18 -- list filters, REST API improvements, new docs platform, and more ... 2019-08-08 -- dashboard interface, currency selector, managing Orders, Customers and Products, Added a WireTabs, refinded caching behavior 2019-06-15 -- taxes provider, shop templates update, multiCURL implementation, and more ... 2019-06-02 -- FieldtypeSnipWireTaxSelector 2019-05-25 -- SnipWire will be free and open source Plugin Key Features
      Fast and simple store setup Full integration of the Snipcart dashboard into the ProcessWire backend (no need to leave the ProcessWire admin area) Browse and manage orders, customers, discounts, abandoned carts, and more Multi currency support Custom order and cart fields Process refunds and send customer notifications from within the ProcessWire backend Process Abandoned Carts + sending messages to customers from within the ProcessWire backend Complete Snipcart webhooks integration (all events are hookable via ProcessWire hooks) Integrated taxes provider (which is more flexible then Snipcart own provider) Useful Links

      Hi everyone,
      a year ago we had put online a first version of our website, which didn't satisfy me much and had several bugs. This year I started working on a complete restyling, both in terms of functionality and graphic. I am very happy with the result obtained. Finally, last week we put this version online that I am proud to show you!
      Site EU: https://www.playwood.it/
      Site USA: https://www.us.playwood.it/
      It is an eCommerce for a small StartUp, the PlayWood, based in Reggio Emilia, Italy.
      The site is multilingual, has two areas of purchase and has two levels of registration. Redirectory based on the source IP for the USA customer and preferred language in the browser for the others countries. It has systems for use registration and sending emails dependent on specific actions, like: registration, purchase, request for quotes, information request, etc. Through the API the site communicates with external platforms such as the management software, Mailchimp and other systems to support marketing and company operations. 
      The site is constantly evolving, in the future we intend to add new features.
      The site was created with these modules:
      Padloper  Login/register Media Library ProCache PayPal Checkout Subscribe to Mailchimp Tracy Debugger Cookie Management Banner Continent and country names ImagePicker Field Map Marker External libraries:
      Spectre, scss framework Swiper slideshow verlok/lazyload fancybox
      Creating this site with ProcessWire represented a moment of strong professional growth. When I started I had little knowledge of some types of language, but Processwire and its APIs give me the ability to easily build pages, manipulate data and integrate any external library easily. Thus, I was able to deepen my knowledge more and more. So I wanted to thank the creators of the cms, who keeps it and who implements it, obviously all the people in the forum for the help they gave me, was very important.
      Thank you!

      Hi Folks,
      This PW site https://ancientlakesmagnesium.com.au/ currently runs Snipcart. Products are built in PW pages but the cart and checkout is managed by Snipcart. Snipcart adds new products to its inventory when first added to the cart, thus a copy of the product catalog is on the Snipcart account. My Client manages all the sales/transactions on Snipcart. The problem is Snipcart is limited, my client wishes to connect to smile.io which is much cheaper to do with a pre-built Shopify app and to have PayPal Subscriptions. Snipcart is showing to be limited in several things now that their business has grown.  
       
      My question is, has anyone had success plugging in products from PW pages into Shopify via the Shopify API? I spoke to Shopify support and they pointed me to the one post in this forum, but it doesn't give any detailed instructions and it quite old now. My other option is to build a Shopify system as a sub domain and somehow build an app that mirrors the menu structure on the PW site so that the user doesn't have to maintain 2 menus. 
       
      If anyone has any suggestions that would be most appreciated.
       
      cheers,
      Ivo

      Not new, but a website I've worked on for a year or so in continous development.
      http://supercarownerscircle.com/
      I originally inherited the site from another web design company - upgraded PW and over the year added ecommerce using the Stripe module and a custom integration, revamped the frontend and added lots of new templates.
      Also did some frontend work on the shopify shop.
