Can anybody point me to a processwire site with shopify integration?

Since shopify offers templates for a full site, I'd like to understand which role could play processwire in this case.

Thanks!

+1 for more info about shopify integration...

i have a new ecommerce site that has to go into production, and was considering PW+FoxyCart;

I would be interested in the pros/cons re PW+shopify vs other systems...;

i guess it must be mostly features – since foxycart can handle everything with respect to the checkout process, i would wonder what advantage Shopify provides. It costs a lot more as well.

Hi,

The simplest method is to use a subdomain (shop.mydomain.com) for your store and then power the rest of your site with PW.

Most of the time I can build the entire site in Shopify though. FoxyCart is a great option as well.

i think as PW grows in user base, there might be more developers wanting to do ecommerce;

perhaps there should be a forum/subforum where we could consolidate all of the ecommerce-related topics.

Greetings,

In my experience so far, Shopify is great if you want to build the entire system in Shopify -- in other words, use Shopify as your CMS and your full e-commerce actions.

If you want to use ProcessWire as your CMS and pull in just the shopping cart/e-commerce elements and credit card transactions as needed, then FoxyCart is better.

Both solutions have their benefits.  However, ProcessWire excels so wonderfully at being a flexible CMS I want to build all my sites with it.  In that case, something like FoxyCart is better, since it just ties into my ProcessWire site.

Thanks,

Matthew

Where you can do some nice integration with Shopify is via their post order hooks. You can very easily set Shopify to ping a URL on your ProcessWire site with some JSON data about an order, immediately after it takes place. From there you can easily automate creation of member accounts, for example.

HELLO!

This is an old thread now, but just got a requirement into to do some shopify integration with PW, anyone done anything like this and created a module at all? If not I'll get on it. I mainly want to get product info from shopify to show in PW.

I have done several integrations and I just basically grab this library through composer and use a private app credentials, the library also handles the API throttling which is extra nice when working with large amounts of data.

      I've been asked to look into migrating an existing site into Magento & Stripe.
      I haven't mentioned to my client whether he would consider Processwire because I wasn't sure how to do the accounting side of things using PW.
      He currently has a bespoke site (PHP / MySQL) and 1 of his biggest problems is that there are some bugs with the accounting side of things and he has to reconcile his accounts manually.
      As much as I like PW, I don't know how easy it would be generate various sales and accounting report using PW. The only way I can currently think of is to store each sale as a page and I would have to write various get functions with filters and loop through them to get totals. 
      I never thought I'd say this but I'm missing SQL right now
      Any thoughts, suggestions or opinions would be welcome here.

      Hi there,
      I was looking for some Processwire + Amazon integration advice. I've never built an e-commerce platform before and surprisingly there's hardly any articles or forum posts when you type in variation searches of "Amazon + Processwire"

      Are there any 3rd party tools and services you recommend?
      Any gotchas I should be aware of ?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hello everyone,
      I just made a website and created the cms using Processwire. It was really great to set up and I can configure it just the way I want it which is perfect. Now this site has 1 main product to sell in 4 colors. My question now is, how do I create a checkout for the visitors with easy payment such as Paypal and iDeal (I live in holland). 
      I'm not to familiair with PHP to create a whole checkout form which is save enough and with a data system for all the customers myself. So I thought I would only use the shopping cart and catalog function of Prestashop. But how exactly can I set that up?
      I was thinking about permalinks. So that customers on my site can select the product and how many they want and after that they get linked right to the checkout page from Prestashop with the exact price and that they only have to fill in their info.
      Do you guys have suggestions on this?
      Kind regards,
      Joris

      Curious if anyone is doing this currently with Processwire. I would hate to use Wordpress for a project, but it seems for someone who isn't very talented at programming (I can hack through reading / googling), their plugin system may be my best bet as it seems they have something that will work for my needs. I just really hate managing / hacking Wordpress sites. 

      I am taking a look at Foxycart, but unless I dive into it, I will not know if it will be what I'm looking for. I'm specifically looking for something that has: 
      An integrated music player (not flash please)
        The ability to sell separate tracks as well as the complete album
        Integrates within the PW site itself instead of external 
        Statistics showing how many downloads occurred for each particular artist / song as well as statistics for overall sales, etc... I've been researching for days. Thanks everyone
