---- INITIAL POST FROM 2019-05-25 ----
I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on a new ProcessWire module that fully integrates the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire. (this is a customer project, so I had to postpone the development of my other module GroupMailer).
The new module SnipWire offers full integration of the Snipcart Shopping Cart System into ProcessWire.
Here are some highlights:
simple setup with (optional) pre-installed templates, product fields, sample products (quasi a complete shop system to get started immediately) store dashboard with all data from the snipcart system (no change to the snipcart dashboard itself required) Integrated REST API for controlling and querying snipcart data webhooks to trigger events from Snipcart (new order, new customer, etc.) multi currency support self-defined/configurable tax rates etc. Development is already well advanced and I plan to release the module in the next 2-3 months.
I'm not sure yet if this will be a "Pro" module or if it will be made available for free.
I would be grateful for suggestions and hints!
(please have a look at the screenshots to get an idea what I'm talking about)
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.
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.
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!
