yes it has per item charges, per unit or units bunches, different delivery options/costs for different products, etc...
as you right said, is just a demo, internally, you can do many combinations/configurations
anyhow i just suggested the op a link to view and if applies, to ask questions
give him some time to think about all the available options :)

This is where you are wrong! As a designer & developer you SHOULD buy from yourself to test out all the functionalities of your site. That's why PayPal has SandBox option.
Good news everyone! COVID-19 is STILL here!

of course there is information in the site, just visit the developers' area for more technical info
however, users can ask further questions if there is something not fully explained
anyway thanks for the suggestion

Hi Guys - sorry for the delay in responding - been insanely busy with all sorts of things...

Hi Adex will check that out.
HORIZON wrote:Hi Colin. I looked at a few e-commerce solutions to use with WWB, but found George's Webshop Plus was the only one that allowed me to calculate the shipping cost BEFORE going out to PayPal. The Smartcart and Nopcart extensions fail miserably in that respect, as few customers are realistically going to log into PayPal just to know what the shipping charges are. :(

With PayPal Express, if memory serves me correctly, it requires a correctly certificated SSL site, otherwise it 'falls over' during the checkout process, which is why I use standard PayPal as far less hassles.

There is a free javascript cart called Nopercart that allows you to set up shipping but that is a manual html entry for every product listed. Probably one of the best integrated cart solutions I have come across though, with a very sleek (and rapid) checkout.

I have moved onto responsive sites now and use Webshop plus with WWB10 and for the more product laden sites I use Opencart, although the latter ties you to rigid templates that limit you to tweaking colours rather than free design AND you have the added complexity of setting up SQL databases.
Hi HORIZON - Quite a considerable response - appreciate that mate! and I think you may be right with Paypal Express.

should be: the only one <<in the list you tested>> that allowed... etc
otherwise you are meaning that this option is not available in any other e-com solution ;) and fyi the extension i suggested in the link i provided to the op has this option :)
So yours does RZ?

Wow - so many choices - tough decision!

ColinM, good check it out. It is powerful than you think or comparing with others. Everything is manage at the backed CMS, you can add SEPA or Check or other gateway payments.
Buy Automation Shopping Cart for CMS WEBSHOP + 2.2 Using WB10!

the Adex solution is more suitable (best solution) than the others suggestion because it is managed by a CMS.

OK guys - firstly, thank you HEAPS to EVERYONE that made the time and effort to contribute and offer their advice - it's VERY much appreciated.

I have respect for you all, and it's been a hard decision - made harder by the fact that I've had a fair bit to do with Navaldesign and RZ, so, with that in mind, especially given RZs excellent extensions and reputation for support I'll be going with RZ - will be in touch my friend.

Hi RZ (wish we had tagging here and PMs)

In the absence of PMs in here, I've send you an email - used the magnamail one - hope thats right.

Chasing the EXACT link and description of what I have to buy (sorry, only doing websites part time now( and have very little) - so don't have time to read and decipher volumes of posts and links. :D

Also a confidential question on one of my staged clients.

Looking forward to your reply ! 8)

Hi Colin,

I am looking into the current WWB ecommerce options for an upcoming project and wondered how you got on with your project? Did your choice of cart work out well for you? I'd appreciate hearing your thoughts.

Cheers,

David

Hi David,

Thanks for your interest. There ARE lot of options and I found it most difficult to decide. I bought RZ's solution, but I haven't been able to find the time to delve into it to the extent that I feel I need to (more a reflection on what I need to invest in understanding it than what looks like a good product). As time was against me with the Client, as is often the case and they didn't want to pay for an imbedded PayPal solution - I went for the std PayPal product, supplementing it with Pablo's Paypal MiniCart 1.0.0 extension - you can see it in action HERE, a website with a design very much driven by the Client. :)
