eCommerce on WordPress? Yes, I said WordPress

Here at Turboecart my job includes training customers on their new web application and helping them make it through the set up and configuration of that website. Sometimes this can go very easily if the customer is technically minded and has some experience working with eCommerce software. Because their brains are already wired ‘the right way’ they can quickly pick up how things work and what touches what and complete their tasks quickly and efficiently.

This is, however, the exception. Most business owners are just that, business owners and not eCommerce specialists or technical people. This simple fact means that they can and do have great trouble getting their eCommerce applications set up and ready to go. The reason is that most applications are designed for the technically minded, and not the business owner looking to increase their web presence and sales base.

There is JOY in Mudville people, because now you can have an eCommerce application that is truly simple to use, powerful, do everything you need it to do, and, well, is REALLY simple to use!!

WordPress now has the ability to also include full eCommerce capabilities, including (this is a SHORT list of the full features available):

  • Full product catalog including multiple images
  • Payment Gateway integration for almost ANY payment gateway out there
  • Full custom shipping functionality with UPS, FedEx, USPS, or whatever your custom shipping needs are
  • Custom Coupons to give $ or % off the sale
  • Complete Admin support for Order and Customer Management
  • Custom forms to gather information as your business model needs
  • Completely customizable page layout, and can be different on every page of your website if needed

The most critical part that the business owner needs to know is that it is simple to use.

All of this additional functionality is delivered through the VERY user friendly and very familiar WordPress user interface, meaning anyone at the business can work on, contribute to, or manage a fully functional eCommerce website.

Why is all this important? Well if you are a business owner, you get to REMAIN a business owner. You no longer have to take time away from running your business to become an IT person. This alone is worth the price of admission (which is less that you might think.)
