5 Things to know about Drupal Commerce

01 August 2012

The positive aspects of Drupal are plentiful.  First and foremost, it is an excellent content management system that provides a powerful web publishing platform.  There are many different Drupal features that receive high acclaim, but its e-commerce capabilities are its best kept secret.

Richard from i-KOS

Drupal Commerce is an open source e-commerce framework.  It builds truly flexible e-commerce websites and applications based on Drupal, arguably the best platform for social commerce.

Richard Jones, Technical Director at e-commerce specialist, i-KOS, gives his insight on the five things you should know about Drupal Commerce:

1. It’s a framework, not a shopping cart

Drupal Commerce has all of the base functionality required of an e-commerce platform but does not dictate how you have to use it. Rather than adapting your website and business to the requirements of the software, you can control the customer experience to match your business requirements.

2. Open Source therefore license cost-free

Drupal Commerce is truly free to use. There are no enterprise or pro versions and no locked-out features.  This makes it the ideal choice for keeping business costs down.

3. Open Source equals free to modify

If something doesn't work the way you need it to, you can modify the behaviour as you have direct access to the source code. Doing so does not violate a license, so you can tweak things as and when you need to.

4. Community Support

Thousands of Drupal developers are available worldwide, so you are not locked into a specific vendor. This means you can also work to your own release schedule, rather than waiting for a vendor to implement the feature you need. The community has a track record of reacting incredibly quickly to new web trends.

 5. Built on top of Drupal

You can leverage all of the other Drupal CMS / Framework features. There are over 15,000 modules available, so it is easy to implement communities, a blog, social media and many more features.
