Hi, All,

I'm new to commerce websites in general, but I'd like to set one up and could use a push in the right direction. I've never set up a commerce site and am wondering how to go about it using SilverStripe to do so.

As I understand, I would need a cart, and that cart would need to communicate with a gateway. I guess my questions are:

1. Do I start with the Payment module or the eCommerce module?

2. The modules section of this website is looking a bit sketchy these days, are those the current releases of those modules?

3. Is there any tutorials for a beginner like myself?

Thanks!
Chris

I haven't used the ecommerce module for SilverStripe but the most development seems to be on [url=http://www.silvercart.org/]SilverCart[/url] at the moment - worth giving that a look.

Hi Prawnstar,

I hope I could answer your questions over at the SilverCart Forum.

Hi Howard, thanks for mentioning SilverCart, seems like it is a bit underrepresented here and a little bit hard to find :-)

Cheers
