Drupal Commerce Development
Drupal Commerce frees you to focus on innovating and growing your business. Being bult on the core Drupal 7 platform, Drupal Commerce has the support of thousands of developers all over the world working to continually enhance and evolve the platform, so you are always up to date with the latest techniques.
Where E Commerce with Drupal can score over rival platforms such as Magento in our opinion is that you don’t have to pay for what you add, other than our time to configure and set up modules. We also implement Magento based solutions and think it is a great platform, but if you want the Community edition to sing and dance you will likely end up paying for modules to do even quite simple things.
The Drupal Community really doesn’t like that route so in our opinion, unless you really need the level of functionality Magento gives you with the pockets to pay for it, Drupal Commerce is a great option. In reality, we can get Drupal Commerce to do pretty much whatever you want, and it will likely cost you less than a Magento installation. With the imminent release of Drupal 8, the buzz is that Drupal Commerce will then be the platform that sings and dances for you!
We use Drupal Commerce to Deliver Results
E Commerce sites are different. Your site may be the only income stream for your business, or it may be one of a number of channels. Either way the primary purpose of the site is to generate revenue.
Lots of development firms fall into the trap of focusing on the technical aspects of a site and not the revenue it generates. It is easy to see how this might happen – with more and more modules and extensions becoming available by the day it is like a sweet shop for the programmers, but technology and extensions are only important in your Drupal Commerce store if they add to revenue!
If visitors don’t buy your products it doesn’t matter how clever your site is. The functionality of your website has to be driven by your commercial goals, what strategic direction you want to take your brand and the role e-commerce will play.
At Morello we make sure that the marketing, design and technical teams work together from the outset of your project, thus ensuring you get a site that looks good, works well and most importantly makes you money.
“The SPA wanted a new website that would promote the association and encourage more interaction between members. Morello delivered a website to a tight budget and timeline that met both these key objectives.
The site is very easy to use and administer and I would certainly recommend their services.”
Why Drupal Commerce?
Drupal Commerce can adapt with your business as it grows or explores new models. Since most of your site is built by configuring modules and interfaces, the business logic and layout of your site are ready to change right along with you.
Built for Growth
Drupal Commerce will scale right along with your business. Drupal powers heavily trafficked sites, such as WhiteHouse.gov, with the same strategies used to accommodate that traffic already supporting eCommerce sites processing thousands of transactions a day.
Built on Drupal 7
Drupal Commerce incorporates the latest and greatest features of Drupal 7 and major contributed modules like Views and Rules. Building on these systems opens the door for you to expand the functionality of your site with thousands of other contributed Drupal modules.
From the start, Drupal Commerce has been a community effort, and its continued growth is thanks to the hard work of dozens of direct contributors from all over the world. Rub shoulders with these Drupal Commerce experts at Drupal events cropping up almost every week.
Easily integrate your Drupal Commerce site with major social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and others. Your customers can login and share their purchases with their friends or even promote your products across their networks so you can be where your customers are.
“The drop is always moving” is the adage that keeps Drupal continuously innovating, and Drupal Commerce is no different. Each new version of core and contributed modules opens the door for wide-ranging changes in architecture and the UI to keep the project current and competitive.
You have complete control over how your store looks through Drupal’s theme layer. Start with any number of freely available or premium themes and tweak the CSS and HTML until it twinkles in your designer’s eye.
Drupal Commerce makes no hard-coded assumptions about your product display needs or business model. You can literally build your site to meet your needs using Drupal’s core interfaces to manage your data objects, page and block layouts, and business logic.
The core systems offer a complete product administration system, shopping cart, and checkout form. It supports multilingual and multi-currency out of the box, with additional eCommerce features and usability enhancements provided by contributed modules.
Drupal Commerce was developed from the start to support international currency, tax, and language needs. Its core pricing engine and contributed modules make it easy to support alternate prices per currency or dynamic currency conversion and VAT inclusive product price displays.
The future is mobile, and Drupal plans to shine on the small screen. Designing responsive eCommerce sites is a breeze with several base themes leading the way, and accessing Drupal data through web services has never been easier thanks to the powerful Services module.
The Drupal Commerce extension list is full of third-party integrations for payment gateways, fulfillment services, accounting applications, social networks, and much more. The API has been built to be extended and to support the import and export of your eCommerce data.
