Building an E-commerce Website With ExpressionEngine
This is a five-part series on how to build an ecommerce website in ExpressionEngine from scratch using the CartThrob add-on.
This walkthrough is in 5 parts, covering the following:
- Part 1: Setting the stage: product field creation
- Part 2: Channel installation and Discounts
- Part 3: Shipping / Tax / Payments
- Part 4: Notifications and Order management
- Part 5: Template setup and tag overview
I’m joined on video by Greg Crane, a developer at Creative Arc, for each key segment of the walkthrough. Greg created all the templates, too, which are available for download.
