Ecommerce question (3 posts)

    I am new to WP, but I have to say from what I have read it is pretty powerful.

    I am looking for an eCommerce solution, but after reading many posts, I can not seem to find exactly what I am looking for, maybe some one here would be kind enough to help.

    I do architecture, and I have a hard drive full of house plans, and I want to sell the Cad files (digital) and other files like textures in Jpeg format.

    I would like to find a cart that:

    1. Enables specific fields when uploading. for instance, when I upload a house design, I need to show # of beds # baths, etc. in some kind of field box so these can be searched.

    2. When up-loading a texture, I will need different fields. Like File type and pixel dimensions.

    I would like to have these fields appear when ever I upload a respective file.

    I don't want to have to keep adding specific fields to the product. When I upload a house, I want to just see the fields specific to the house, and when uploading an image, only see the fields specific to the image.

    I guess I might have to have 2 different add product sections?

    I hope I am clear, if not please forgive my vagueness.

    Hope some one can get back to me!

    Thanks for your time in advance!

    Hi Rob,

    I'm quite new to wordpress too. I've been using WooCommerce for a few ecommerce sites and I've found it quite flexible and easy to use. I don't know if it will meet all your requirements, but there are a lot of plugins you can add on to specialise your site.

    Also in WooCommerce you can add product tags and then place these in the side bar as a search filter.

    That might be generic to all e-commerce platforms, but I wouldn't know because I've only used this one!

    Hope that helps
    Dawn

    You should be able to achieve this with WooCommerce used in conjunction with a couple of plugins. It might be worth looking at advanced custom fields as well.
