[resolved] how to show a product but don't sell online (7 posts)

    Hi -

    I'm looking for a way to show products and product info and pricing online with some sort of plugin or shopping cart, but I don't want to actually sell the items electronically online. I'd like to have customers call or come in to the store to make the purchase.

    Any suggestions on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Maybe just use a shopping cart like WooCommerce - but then on the checkout page provide ordering info?

    Or you could build a custom post type/template and just do it with the Page structure.

    Let me know if that makes sense...

  3. I don't have a specific recommendation, but every e-commerce plugin I've evaluated over the years has some kind of "pay by check" or "store pickup" option that allows users to browse your catalog and place a request without requiring the actual e-commerce part. You shouldn't need any custom development just for that functionality.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/eshop/ offers a Cash "pseudo gateway" which effectively allows you carry out the actual sale manually using whatever means you want to use.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I did a search with the terms "store pickup" and I found a plugin called TheCartPress. It has a feature where you can check a box and it turns your shop into a catalogue and removes the check out features, which is really cool, because, if, at some point, I want to start selling online, all I have to do is uncheck the button and ... voi-la!

    Looks really cool - I'll have to check it out.

    Be sure to note this as 'Resolved'

    Good luck!
