The Scotch.io site has a tutorial for the WordPress users out there needing an ecommerce solution and wanting to integrate it seamlessly into your site. They show you how to integrate Snipcart, part of a platform that handles a lot of the common ecommerce tasks for you.
Even though an exponential amount of online tools keep popping up, WordPress remains a domineering web behemoth. More than 25% of active sites run on the famous CMS. Quite a chunk of the whole world wide web.
[...] Many front-end developers I've met and talked to enjoy working with a lean, quick e-commerce solution like Snipcart. But, they also want to give more autonomy in familiar CMS to their merchant clients. Since many of them use WordPress, I thought I'd write this article to provide them with a useful resource.
The post then breaks the process down into a few different steps, each including code and screenshots as needed:
- Installing the required plugins
- Show products in the theme
- Integrate Snipcart's shopping cart
- Update inventory with webhooks
- Add Snipcart data to WordPress admin
- Quick edit of inventory
If you're interested in the full code required for the integration, you can see it over on this GitHub repository.
