Is it possible to recreate this - https://www.canterburyequestrian.co.nz/ (well similar not the same) for a different company? Including the reviews. Not sure how they are done…! I’ve used Shopify in the past but understand that doesn’t integrate as well with Sparkle (if I have that correct?). If the client wants to add products themselves can they log into the shopping cart site and is there a way they will update into Sparkle; or ???. Haven’t done a full sales based site, just ones with a few products so this is a big deal.
I should edit; the shopping cart bit update into the live site somehow. So if the customer wants to add a product, it will appear. Or is this just not possible…
From my experience @iVivid Shopify Lite works really well with Sparkle.
Shopify has gone down the path of prioritising their wares over others so integrating the Shopify Store is another matter. From what I have experienced their Shopify Store only works on their platform.
If you want an e-commerce store integration into Sparkle I would start with Ecwid. I have a few Ecwid stores integrated into Sparkle where the clients make updates on the Ecwid side and it automatically filters through to the Sparkle site.
Here is a couple store integration…
- https://shopfronttrevallyn.com (looks like the store is down for maintenance at the moment)
Does it automatically work if they add a new product? That first site looks really nice
Thanks for your nice words!
Yes, If the Client adds products via Ecwid then the store on the Sparkle website is automatically populated and refreshed. So the Client doesn’t have to touch anything on Sparkle.
Ecwid can be integrated in Sparkle in the “product browser” mode, where the products are directly entered on the ecwid portal, like say this by @RPX:
and this by @andymaltby:
Or with more work in Sparkle but also more design around the product purchase itself, like this by @dpamping:
