Online store shopping cart
« on: February 21, 2013, 01:07:56 PM »
I am in the process of getting set up with a couple drop shoppers and want to launch an online store ASAP.

I have set up a subdomain for my store, but I am not sure what to do for my ecommerce software needs.

What is best, a WordPress plugin or a total solution? I would like to keep my monthly operating costs low, I really don't want a monthly fee. What do you guys suggest?

That's a great question. And a bunch of us here would probably love to hear the official answer.

Getting to the official answer... I'd ask the drop shippers. If they are clueless, I'd try this one: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/orderstorm-wordpress-e-commerce/

I remember reading good reviews of it when I was looking into drop shipping. BUT I NEVER TESTED IT.

Hopefully, you can get better intel than this. Good luck!

Wonder if there are any great forums for drop shippers.  It would be best to get an answer from someone doing the same thing.   You may want to check at http://www.warriorforum.com/  lots of info there for online marketing, software questions.  I can't vouch for everyone over there, as with anything, you have to use your own judgement.

Does anyone know about or have experiance with Zen cart or tomato cart? I believe these are free and don't require any extra expenses.

I'm in the process of setting up  my Zencart, pretty simple so far. Hostgator has an easy plugin and setting it up has been pretty easy. With that said, i'm not drop shipping... I have my own manufactured products.
