My first PW site

Recommended Posts

This is my first site I made for a client with PW:

http://www.springbeestjes.be

It is a simple online shop used (for the moment) PayPal.

It is expandable for the future.

Modules:

- Maintenance module http://modules.processwire.com/modules/maintenance-mode/

I want to thank all the PW-people who helped me learning and understanding PW, also for the fast and good support.

I like this CMS!!!

Now I preparing the next project  :rolleyes:

Regards,

Christophe

Hi tuxy,

Nice site! I really like the fun design, and I visited it both on my phone and my computer, and the experience is very smooth on both devices, well done!

Initially, my reaction to the purchasing process was that it would be better to have a cart functionality, so that a client can add several items before buying. Then I noticed that you use PayPal as a cart solution, which makes purchasing both simple and fast. I didn't know that you could do that, it's a really useful tip, so thanks!

I just wanted to mention that the "hier" link on this page doesn't lead anywhere, and that the "Privacy en Disclaimer" page is basically empty. Also, you have an "Andere" product category with a badge showing one item, but no items are visible in the category.

Hi,

Thx for the feedback.

It's a first version.

For now it is a very basic solution. If you buy a product, then it's go to the external PayPal cart-option and there you can select the quantity.

It's not the best solution, but it works  :mellow:

Yes, its very simple making a shopping-cart only with PayPal. In PayPal you can generate a button and then customizing the html. Its very easy.

Here you see the customized PayPal-button code:

<?php

foreach($products as $product) {
...
echo "<form class='buy-button' target='paypal' action='https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr' method='post'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='cmd' value='_cart'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='business' value='your@mail.com'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='lc' value='BE'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='item_name' value='{$product->title}'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='item_number' value='{$product->art_nr}'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='amount' value='{$product->art_price}'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='currency_code' value='EUR'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='button_subtype' value='products'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='add' value='1'>";
echo "<input type='hidden' name='bn' value='PP-ShopCartBF:btn_cart_LG.gif:NonHosted'>";
echo "<button type='submit' class='btn btn-primary' name='submit'><i class='fa fa-shopping-cart'></i> Nu kopen!</button>";
...
};

I know some pages are not completed, this is work for the client, also the 'hidden' product in the 'Andere' catagory.

I sayed him, but for the moment he have no time in the next days for complete the contents on the pages.

Next weekend I go to the client and gives him some support, and help him a little how to add, edit or remove pages/products.

In a next version I developing a internal cart solution. I want to try this with the shop-module, but this have now mail support  :(

In the next weeks I try developing a mail-function that send a mail to the administrator and the customer if the cart submitted.

I hope you understand my bad english  :P

Regards,

Christophe

Hey, thanks for the code, that's really useful. And I understand your English perfectly!

Developing a custom cart solution is pretty straightforward with the $session variable, otherwise you can also check Foxy Cart. I haven't used it myself, but I remember some people mentioning that they did and they seemed pretty happy with it.

No problem because you are a fast learner :)

Foxy Cart is not free

Besides Foxy Cart you can have a look at Open Cart. It's open source and I am using it with great results.

It is stable, easy for both coder and end user and many extensions available.

      Hello Fellows,

      I have a wonderful webshop, using PL and Padopt, a module developed by Julien Vaubourg and highlighted in ProcessWire Newsletter. Here is our shop: cheval-ami.fr
      I am looking for a new developer, helping me to keep the shop smooth and up to date.
      We would like to improve automated invoicing and worldwide shipping, getting DHL integrated and give people the possibility to create their personal accounts and be the nicest shop in the equine industry. We are still a young company, working all in german, english and french. We are very interested in a long time, kind and friendly relationship without any stress, but reliable reactivity in case of urgency. 
      We are based in Hamburg and near Paris and would prefere to work with somebody who is available to catch up around a table, at least sometimes.
      Contact: mail@cheval-ami.fr or +33 626 22 1000 or +49 170 20 28 215
      Thank you, Have a beautiful day,
      Jeannette

      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!

      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.

      Hello
      I need to make a small, easy Webshop for a friend. He is selling 4 music albums.
      What would be the best way to go?
      Is there a sensible solution for a webshop within processwire? 
      Thanks

      Hi folks,
      I have a marketplace site built on PW which I'd like to tie to a subscription payment system for those selling. The user accounts currently use specific PW user accounts. I'm looking closely at PayWhirl to manage payments and subscriptions as it looks ideal for subscriptions. Their API seems to work well too from initial testing.
      I wondered if anyone else in this super forum had used PayWhirl and had any advice or tips & tricks?
      Thanks.
