Webshops are very popular. We looked forward to the new Drupal 8 Commerce module and his extentions.
Wat do you get after installing the Commerce module, and only the commerce module.. Well there are many submodules. So it is not only Commerce.
Look what you need..
In 25 seconds with composer...
The submodules ...
There is a tab 'Commerce'. From there you make and configure the whole shop and his products. No content types needed any more. A commerce product has its own URL!
To start with.. A special one. Currency needs a currency numeric value...
You find it on the net.
There still are product types and their variations. These variations are configured in variation types. So briefly, product types are for the commen properties. The variation types are for the specific properties.
If we want to sell TShirts. The tutorial to wash the shirts will be in the product type, the color and size will be in the variation type.
A product type example.
A variation type example.... I have made an image field in order to change the picture according the chosen color.
Variations are made in the shop configuration. No taxonomy!
Each variation type can have its own fields too. I added chest and length to the size.
When adding product you can see the 2 types. (product and variation)
The variation part has default an inline form.
Also included.. Promotions and coupons.
To display the products you need a good allround knowledge of Drupal. Colorbox, DS,...
And of course..views. Here an example of a view in combination with an other view showing the available variations. (views field view module)
Add Some CSS..
The shopping cart is waiting for you..
