"i've built over a dozen e-commerce sites using Drupal Commerce and highly recommend it"

What do you like best?

I've done quite a bit of e-commerce site development with Drupal Commerce and my favorite thing about it is that there is literally a limitless amount of functionality that you can build into your online shops, and there are so many great add-on modules that collectively make for a VERY powerful system.

What do you dislike?

It's not rocket science...but you really need to know what you're doing! Drupal commerce can be very overwhelming to set up because there's so much going on, and one wrong setting can really mess you up (once upon a time I missed a setting and my client wound up sending out $3,000ish worth of merchandise without the credit cards actually having been processed.) all of that said though, it comes down to the fact that it's a REALLY big system and you just need to make sure you're dotting your I's and crossing your T's. Maybe a dashboard showing flags for settings that might be a problem would be nice.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you understand how to build a site in Drupal and get the complexity of it, definitely use Drupal Commerce! If you haven't got much technical experience, you're in for a steep learning curve. But if you can handle the learning curve, I highly recommend drupal commerce.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've built everything from ticket sales systems to wholesale product distribution systems with drupal commerce and at the end of the day, it's given us a lot more peace compared to other e-commerce systems because it's so stable.

"A great platform, but not without its quirks"

What do you like best?

Naturally, I love the seamless integration into the Drupal platform, it's as simple as installing a module... cause it is. :)

There's a great option to have an AJAX enabled "single page checkout", which will do all the processing needed on that page.

This is a great option if you know you need a shopping cart but are unsure of what your payment gateway will be, DrupalCommerce integrates nicely with all major credit card options, Authorize.NET, PayPal, etc. Again, just install the module that you need.

What do you dislike?

There's a slight learning curve when it comes to terminology for this.

Everything is node based as usual, but you'll have a structure of "Products" and then "Product Displays". At firs,t you'll think they're one of the same, but ... a Product, is a Shirt, XL in Red. Then you use the Product Display to showcase (and template how you like) that Shirt in XL Red. But what if you have another size? Then you need to create another Product to display in the Product Display.

It's a bit of a pain to be honest, especially if you have a slew of items, but the benefits for it are a better means to track your inventory.

But you can definitely tie into Commerce_Hooks and alter what you need.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Though robust compared to what is was (ubercart), there's still that feeling of... lacking.

If your site is a content site that will sell goods and services, then dive all in, you'll need the integration with your other content.

If your main goal is to sell and then tie in a blog down the road, Magento might be a better option for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Giving a client a reasonable, streamlined shopping cart that will work with the Drupal Bootstrap site they already have in place.

The expansion and customization via hooks and templates are great. "Recently viewed" and "Other's purchased" options are things clients want now-a-days, and this gives me the option in my native Drupal environment.

"A great system with near infinite possibilities."

What do you like best?

I love the flexibility of Drupal commerce being built into a scalable CMS like Drupal. All of the other eCommerce solutions that I've used are strictly good at eCommerce, but all the other required website features were near impossible to achieve.

By integrating Commerce directly into Drupal, you now have the best of both worlds!

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of a learning curve to get everything set up and configured just the way you like it. If you have someone to walk you through it or follow a video it's not that tough to figure out, but definitely not as simplistic as some of the eCommerce only platforms out there like Shopify.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would fully recommend getting very comfortable with Drupal before evening considering Drupal Commerce. Spend the time learning all of the setup and admin functions that Commerce has to offer or you will be lost once you start building your site.

There are a million different features that can be added to Drupal Commerce via 3rd party modules. Learning how to integrate those can be challenging, but is definitely worthwhile. Having a PHP Developer on staff or readily available will certainly make your life much easier when certain bridges need to be crossed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're able to build an online platform that not only offers eCommerce, but also integrates an event management system. This was only made possible to us after learning about Drupal Commerce sans the idea of having two separate web applications, which just didn't make sense to us.

"Effectively extends Drupal capabilty for e-commerce"

What do you like best?

I've been using Drupal way back when and often switch around different projects with Joomla, WordPress and other CMS. I've always preferred Drupal even though it's probably not used as much. Using Drupal Commerce is pretty intuitive and allows me to use Drupal in more projects, e-commerce related and otherwise. More capability, plugin options, extensive settings, customization options, APIs and more.

What do you dislike?

It isn't used much and doesn't seem to be a preferred commerce platform. Customizing can be difficult, online tutorials and resources are not as available as other platforms. Can be costly depending on how you plan to scale and integrate.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This can be a great tool is you're familiar with Drupal or a similar system. It provides all the standard features you'd expect from an e-commerce platform. Can be a good starting point or for advanced users.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Online sales and management. Being able to customize various commerce setups and extend features of Drupal. Able to move data around various platforms.

"Steep learning curve, but worth it "

What do you like best?

A great deal of "ready to go" customizations to fit any type of store you wish to build. I can create a store for just about any type of product and even services.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve for this additional module is pretty steep. Don't go it alone if you are a nivice at Drupal or just a casual user. It will take someone that really understands and can edit the small details of the module in order to get full use out of the module for yiour site. Be prepared with a separate list of products and product information before going in and setting up your products. It will be easier if you have all of the product information at hand and ready to go.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My customer thought they would have to import their site into WordPress in order to use WooCommerce in order to create a store that was manageable. BUT THIS IS NOT TRUE. Once you get past the installation of the module as well as its customizations and details, the day-to-day maintenance and process of adding a new product of service is fairly easy for the casual user.

We were able to help a customer avoid a migration away from security and into WordPress for their site and provided them with an online store and Ecommerce presence for their brick and mortar site/store.

"Not Only E-Commerce But More Than That"

What do you like best?

E-commerce feature along with other possibility due to power of Drupal.It can be extended to any customised e-commerce CMS working along membership management, booking management, paid content management etc.

In one one - Flexibility.

What do you dislike?

Nothing I can think of now. After using Magento, WooCommerce etc, I found this to be exactly what I want as Developer. But for new user, there can be learning curve.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are fan of Drupal, having some specific requirement in hand, maybe you are expecting to extend features in future thenI would bet, Drupal Commerce would be the best thing to adopt. Being part of Drupal framework, everything you got as add-on(module) to extend features on your website is free of cost. BTW, have you heard of Drupal community? If Yes, then no need to explain about available support & help, which you can expect while developing with it.

(Note - Coming from a expert who has used several other e-commerce technologies)

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have worked with Drupal Commerce for last 3 years & was part of team developing several e-commerce with complex functionality such as paid membership management, paid course management, pure e-commerce, books selling cum renting solution etc. And I have always found the power of Drupal with e-commerce while used Drupal Commerce.

"Developing and maintaining Drupal Commerce for customers"

What do you like best?

The admin backend is pretty flexible. Maintaining products is flexible and adding additional information to products and products display is pretty straight forward.

What do you dislike?

Themeing drupal commerce is real pain and migrating data into the store from external sources is poorly documented. Due to the poor documentation and complexity of how drupal works I can be really time consuming to track down bugs in the code.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have skilled Drupal Specialist to handle the implementation then Drupal commerce might be a good fit. You will probably need a agency or a developer on a contract to handle customizations if you will be doing integrations with other products such as external ERP system.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Webstores for customers

Online sales

Syncing data from external ERP system into drupal commerce ( Microsoft Dynamics Navision )

"Powerful and Efficient - Worked Well for us..."

The large variety of modules I was able to choose from to customize my experience.

What do you dislike?

Functionality of CSV/Spreadsheet importing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's perfect unless you have millions of products to upload like we did.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Drupal gave us the flexibility to run our business more efficiently. The modules are really the best point here.

"Not the best ecommerce web platform"

What do you like best?

I liked that Drupal Commerce integrated with a lot of payment methods. You weren't stuck using PayPal and it looked more authentic.

What do you dislike?

I think there are better plugins you can get from a Wordpress site than having to use Drupal. You can get free plugins that pretty much do the same thing.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Not bad if you have the money to spend.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were trying out e-commerce on our site to tell city-themed products. I liked Drupal Commerce visually. It seemed to flow with the website pretty seamlessly.

Drupal commerce gives a flexibility which you expect from Drupal. It has integration with entity API, fields, views.

has a good architecture of separated product display and product entity.

What do you dislike?

Checkout form is too custom - hard to change anything.

I use drupal commerce for e-commerce websites development.

It is quite flexible, suits to any kind of e-commerce website: from classic (with catalog and cart) to custom (without a catalog, cart, but with customazible products).

"Great service for Drupal developers to add eCommerce to a website!"

What do you like best?

I like that Drupal Commerce is based off of Drupal - as a Drupal developer, I am biased, but it is just that easy to spin up an eCommerce site when you are already familiar with the underlying Drupal system.

What do you dislike?

Since it is Drupal, it tends to get a bit slow and clunky at times. This can, however, can be alleviated by having a good hosting provider that has expertise in handling Drupal - like Pantheon or Acquia.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating an eCommerce website with limited knowledge in the field of eCommerce, but immense knowledge in the Drupal content management system.
