Ability to sell products and services through a Webflow site.
Webflow Ecommerce is now in beta — for everyone. For details on what this release includes, what's coming next, and how to get started, check out our announcement blog post.
Isn't this already possible with the CMS? You can sell products using just about any shopping cart you want...
I believe an e-commerce module was discussed by the devs long time ago, but apparently they kind of move this priority somewhere else. I would really love to see a dedicate e-commerce functionality that has payment integration. Perhaps integrating with Braintree or Paypal as a start isn't that bad after all.
You can use FoxyCart, but it would be nice to have some sort of hosting plan that offered eCommerce support.
The current solutions are great for selling a few products but this not work for large stores
That is a great Idea. Think about it, if we would have an E-commerce functionality in combination with the Wishlist Idea "Ability to integrate user login and registration for a Webflow hosted site". I wrote some ideas down take a look at the comment if you want!
I think the most important functionalities that they need to cover are:
One issue with using a shopping cart integration like Shopify or FoxyCart is that the solution isn't a full website flow. Using conversion analytics like Improvely is impossible since there's a gap between the product page and the cart—two separate URLs and experiences hosted in different ways. A Webflow native ecommerce experience would bridge that gap. Also Shopify's (and to a lesser extent FoxyCart's) carts are limited regarding style and flexibility.
I do not know for what reason for this functionality you need to vote? It just has to be. You said that you plan this functionality just a year ago, thus gained new users, and now it turns out that you will count the votes, and only then decide to do or not do. It's not even funny. You do not even need to make a payment gateway. Just cart and a button that adds a product to the cart. This is a great content management system, but it is not complete without e-commerce.Just do it!
We keep loosing clinents because we need to use third party aplications integrations and the clients dont want to pay for two seperate hosts. It is a very urgant funcionality. I absolutly vote for it. Kepp up this fantastic job. Cheers Peter
It would be great to have drop-in checkouts for Stripe or Braintree. It should work with the webflow form.
This would save us from using third party app, and harness the power of webflow to design beautiful checkout forms, natively on our website.
I am using get DPD and find it quite good, particularly for digital downloads. I'd consider getting in touch with them and see if they may be interested in some sort of collaboration.
I have been eyeing off webflow for a long time. I will continue to build wordpress sites in pain until I see integrated payments and booking registration within the platform.
It would be great to have account creation and stripe integration.
I'd love to see them join forces with someone like foxycart or snipcart to make this happen right within Webflow. Add some product filtering functionality and bam, I'm sold on Webflow for life.
for smaller stores I think adding shopping cart capability to Webflow is great.
However for large stores (thousands of sku's) which would love to use the designs here, being that front-end design is an endless pit,
the ability to add PHP code from Magento or the like into the important parts would be tremendous,
simple code profiles to add into the code based on different platforms.
And the ability to use one template and add any eCommerce code template to it would be the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I dont one think I'm alone on this.
This would be so perfect. And if you can connect your digital store with your retail fisical store items, that's would be so amazing!
Men I need this! Like now!
Would be great to have a native solution for e-commerce design and process into Webflow...
I'm a huge fan of Webflow but i'm constantly loosing clients because they don't want to pay for Webflow aswell as a third party cart.
Why is this 'In backlog', please get this planned in, or at least give us confidence that it will be at some point.
What does 'In backlog' even mean, please be more transparent. Is native e-commerce ever happening?
Please let us know so we can either wait, or change to a different platform
Do this already!
A way to design checkout pages also!
I haven't even started using webflow because of potential client ecommerce needs. Yet there is not point having commerce if the tools is not on par with other platforms. Things like mobile access and integration with stock management, POS are all important. I'd be interested in what the main customer issues are with shopify and how webflow can improve on it?
The hardest thing with NOT having some kind of e-commerce option/solution directly in Webflow is the extra tasks in walking my clients through other 3rd party solutions and having to pay extra just to still run into design limitations for presenting these products not to mention paying extra money for just 1 or 2 products some times.
Not having this for certain clients takes so much time and completely kills the flow (hence Web-FLOW). E-commerce is a HUGE part of the web and most applications for so many businesses I feel like it's definitely a needed option.
I hope this really jumps up on the top of the list for Webflow! Would be amazing to have with an already stellar platform. Would just make it 10X better!
It's a win-win for everyone. My Clients, myself and webflow, plain and simple.
Yes!! Please just add a Stripe Component that let's us easily accept payments and subscriptions.
I need it!!!!! all my clients need and e-commerce!
I'd like to see a stronger integration with Foxycart. It has a steep learning curve to get setup but its highly flexible and the best shopping cart for subscriptions.
I love Webflow! It will be awesome to have ecommerce support! truly a wordpress killer!
Man, I cannot wait till they implement this!!!
Hi Webflow team! Any plans for Request for Proposal (RFP) checkout?
This is when a visitor picks several items she likes, adds them to a cart, and sends it as a quote request to the seller. This is a killer feature for B2B sellers with customized products or anyone who's not selling off-the-shelf goods.
I would choose for Stripe integration. Think of a partner that can provide payment solutions all around the world. Including The Netherlands ;-)
SO Excited for this!!! 💰💰💰
- Fixed Unit Prices
- Payment Plans (X number of payments)
- Custom Plans (X number of payments => On-going subscription starts)
I just became extremely hype seeing this great news on a Monday!
This announcement made me sooo excited!!! How cool is this!!?? You guys are the best!
Excellent news! will you integrate with Stripe? Can you confirm which platform will Webflow work with?
I need to build a website now with e-commerce for a client. What would you reccomend me to do? Use a third party solution or will I be able to use webflow soon?
I'm in the same boat as Iris above - my client requires retail functionality to their site asap. Will this EC be implemented soon?
Dear Webflow team,
I have a potential client for an e-commerce. They already now that you have a beta version and that in your planned new release it will not have an email marketing for cart abandonment.
I'm would like to know if we will be able to integrate the e-commerce Webflow version with Mailchimp to manage cart abandoned since this is a great tool to manage this issue.
I have integrated Webflow with Foxycart in the past and I know that Foxycart has an integration with Mailchimp so in the meantime this is a solution.
I wish that before I start working in this new e-commerce you have released yours and that it has a MailChimp integration for Cart Abandonment.
We also have a new customer now for a webshop. Is there any timeframe for when you think it will be functional? Lookin forward to this one!
Hey guys, this is awesome! That said, I'm giving you fair warning. If you push out e-commerce before you push out pagination, making everyone not only have to manually paginate their blogs but then also their e-commerce, I'm going to have a fit and I'm going to to do it across the web while crying and laughing at the same time due to the frustration of it.
Please give us more choice for payment gateways. It is very crucial to people from countries that are not supported by Stripe.
My vote would definately be yes on Ecommerce! I'm not sure it would solve everyones Ecommerce problems, but it sure would be a start. I do not know PHP, with my limited web design training, I'm lucky to be able to teach myself how to use Webflow, which I must say, so far is a great platform to build with. After attempting Wordpress and then Muse, I definitely prefer Webflow. But obviously, Some of our ecommerce price calculators seem to be more complicated than others. I could sell t-shirts in 5 sizes and 20 colors easy, but I can't find a price calculator that will let me sell picture frame moulding of many profiles, finishes, and colors, custom cut down to 1/8 of an inch (such as 48 1/8" x 32 5/8). Now something like that would be fantastic!
+3 To this comment. It can't be thaaaaat hard to implement pagination.
Any update when you will release the beta
Any updates? This will be the only thing that will convince me to pay for hosting to be honest.
I started a thread about a Foxy + Webflow partnership: https://forum.foxycart.com/discussion/11509/webflow-foxycart-partnership?new=1
Ecommerced is incredibly complex and nuanced. Adding ecommerce functionality is a major business and strategy decision, not an "added feature". I think a partnership would be a huge help in creating a fully featured ecommerce experience.
So this is in development before CMS Gallery which people need to sell products ...
Hey Guys & Girls,Please consider voting for my wishlist idea, which is to prioritise integrating PayDock as a payment provide to Webflow Ecommerce.
It's an API that let's you use heaps of different payment providers rather than having to hook them up to Webflow one by one.
Disclaimer: I've got no affiliation with Paydock
Wish it rolls out before the 2018 Holiday Season
I keep having to pass up potential Ecommerce clients because of this. I don't want to offer Shopify or Foxy or something when this is right around the corner, but IX2 took seemingly forever so I'm a little worried this will take longer than expected too.Would be nice to get periodic progress updates on the wishlist features in development.
Looking forward to seeing the Ecommerce implementation - how far away are we from being able to trial a beta?
I did ask about this in yesterdays live session. It's about payments in the new eCom.As you said you will start with Stripe, thats fine.
What i realy want for the first release is a custom payment option. Where i can set up my paymenttype, the customer then have the option to pay with my custom type. It will not involve any security problem since this is an manual payment option. My only need is to set the order as paid.Shopify do offer this solution.You also said that you will add more payment options, very good. Since i'm from Sweden we do have payment providers that it's not in the interest for you due to low customer base. What i realy would like to have as an possibility to add new gateways as a developer. How can we solve this?Janne
Businesses with shopfront stores are looking at the whole integrated in store POS / online integrated solution including multiple locations (shopify just rolled out locations). I look forward to seeing your road map in this area ..phew
I've explored a wide range of e-commerce platforms: middling to great backend, awful front end. Something as simple as repositioning a button requires code hacking. The one exception I've found is Wix: awful backend, adequate front end. If Webflow moves in this direction you will have a stampede of customers.
To the features others have mentioned I would add:
- Multi-currency handling of credit and debit cards
- Stripe, Paypal and other payment gateways
- Multi-country shipping
- Ability to upload product data from a spreadsheet (Excel or comma / tab delimited file)
- Ability to handle product variations (eg t-shirt sizes and colours)
- Capacity to handle large data volumes (ie hundreds of products, plus variations, equating to thousands of options)
If you missed it, here is a recording of the first look into Webflow Ecommerce:
- Nelson, Customer Success Specialist
I'd like to see updates to the CMS and Cart items done via a tool like Zapier. Manually updating pricing across a range of products will be painful in Webflow but easy in a CSV file. Ideally, the CSV is used as a master document, pushing updates to Webflow via Zapier.
Good job on getting e-commerce out for Beta...that said, WHERE IS PAGINATION?
@Nathan - Still being worked on :) We kind of teased it on the Ecommerce first look live stream.
Can i use ecom with current cms plan?When the user registration will be arrive? I want a dashboard for my ecom site for customers, current situation look like foxycart integration
We really need pagination, especially for blogs. Hope it comes out soon!
Can we sell services yet? Or is the beta just for physical products that are shipped to the customer?
Hi Nelson (Admin), thanks for the followup. I think we are just really anxious for pagination...it's just one of those things that, as web a solution provider, on h got to have in order to provide a real solution to customers...we've kind of had to skirt around Webflow for a while now because nobody wants to manually hack and update...it's easier to just use another solution. So again, congrats on e-commerce and we look forward to pagination being available as soon as possible.
