When i was planning to write another article for my blog, I thought why not write a couple of lines about the latest project I just completed. Check the url : www.munchmylunch.com.au
This website is completely developed using WordPress and Woo Commerce (www.woothemes.com/woocommerce). This is one of those shopping cart system that lets you get lot of things done with minimal effort.
Though I have only used roughly 25% of the inbuilt features of this cart, I have extensively played with the core code to give it the look and feel that client wanted.Before i settled in for Woo Commerce i had tried other shopping cart systems for Word Press but some how they all seems to be too outdated and not very design friendly.
The default theme provided by woothemes is good enough for most Woo Commerce installations but if you want to go the extra mile to give your shopping cart a custom look and feel, then Woo Commerce gives you ample options to hook and override their default templates.
You will also find AJAX utilization all at the right places using jQuery. Also it is not fair if i do not mention the payment gateway support it provides by default (yes paypal standard pay is included !!) . The tax and Shipping computation is too super easy.
Along with the rock solid stability of wordpress, this shopping cart is a winner for small and medium e commerce websites. did i say you can combine the SEO plugins to work along with the cart to get top rankings on google ?
More on this brilliant plugin and how to use it for your projects in my future posts.
