E-commerce in WordPress

So, you or your client wants to sell stuff on your website. While choosing a cart plugin is an important decision, have you considered all the factors that should help you make that choice? The decisions that need to be made with merchant accounts, payments, SSL certificates, shipping, reporting, inventory and fulfillment, affect how everything else needs to work. Design, product layout, number of products and categorization all need to come into play as well.

Join us for a panel discussion with Heather Acton, Jeff McNear and Becky Davis as we discuss these important issues and how we have dealt with them. Between us we have developed over a dozen WordPress e-commerce sites and have seen at least most of it. Please ask questions in the RSVP and we'll get to as many as possible as well as many as we can that evening.

As always, we start at 6 with a meet and greet and there is always someone available if you have a specific question on your site. The presentation begins at 7.

You are welcome to bring your laptop, but bringing a hotspot and a fully charged battery is recommended. The Holiday Club router and plugs are very limited.

    At the meeting, someone mentioned that she knew the person to talk to at Bank of America for merchant accounts. I have a need to find that person! Please get in touch -- [masked]

    It was interesting. Sorry to run out, thought 2 hours on parking. What is best way to go about parking? Is it unmetered after a certain time? Was there much mingling after (8:30pm & on)?

      Down the street there is more parking after 6pm

      March 7, 2013

      Yep, Eastbound Irving is no parking 4-6, so right at 6 it's easy to find a space and 1 block east of Sheridan is no meters.

    WooCommerce 2.0 just came out, anyone played around with it yet? Might be worth setting up a demo site to take a look at it!

      I haven't played with it yet, but in case a demo site would be useful, I've set one up here:

      It's a bare WordPress install with WooCommerce 2.0.2 in it, just in case anyone needs it for demo stuff tonight.

    In anticipation of this event I've uploaded a couple of things to get you thinking about e-commerce.
    Under Files, is a spreadsheet of questions that I would give a client to fill out before deciding on what e-commerce solution would be best for them.
    Under Discussions, I added a great list that Jeff put together. A lot of good things to know about and consider before jumping into e-commerce.

    March 1, 2013

    • Becky D.

      Joe, we start at 6 with meet and greet, grab a burger and beer. At 7 we will start the presentation. We're usually wrapping up by 8:30 and are gone by 9.
