gareth, thanks for the info
u’ve just put a clanger in my plans
i was planning to create many woocommerce websites, each holding stock of 1000’s of items
why would wordpress be a bad idea?
where would it fall down?
ecommerce? well… that’s just a system whereby you have a shopping cart + a few other settings - it is a major component… but not a super complex one
would it fall down if the website had 20 customers buying every 30 min for example?
i’ve tried magento: there’s a lot to it and it’s not at all intuitive + a lot of maintenance + the back end interface is pants
i’ve tried prestashop: the backend seems like it was designed in the days of DOS
all platforms, including woocommerce, fell down when it came to the postage…
sending from uk, there are multiple zones. u have uk, europe and the rest of the world. but then u have eastern europe and more remote countries like peru. then u have italy - the enemy of online sellers - ask the average online seller and they will tell u italy is made of crooks who buy and then claim they never recieved. so u need to have a system to cope with these things.
there was nothing in magento or prestashop that coped with the above described. you’d have to spend about $200 for plugin (no problem paying).
woocommerce, there’s a plugin on codecanyon that does all i needed for postage
i’ll definitely to magento when i’m making enough money
thanks for the input
