Woocommerce - could it come to Rapidweaver?

A few sites of friends seem to use woo commerce (which I know is a Wordpress plug in). I jus t wondered if there was a way of porting over to Rapidweaver? And if not (which I guess must be the answer) why no-one has made a stack for it?

I guess the only way that happens is if the people behind Woocommerce want to produce a Rapidweaver version plugin, which seems unlikely. Obviously it would be good to have.

Seeing as the Automattic, the company that owns Wordpress.com, also owns Woo Commerce, I wouldn’t hold your breath that it will ever work outside of the Wordpress environment…

I didn’t know Woo Commerce was that closely linked to Wordpress. In the past I’ve looked at it and thought it might be a good solution, but it was never an option with RW. I also use Blocs, which will soon allow exports to WP, so I hope to try it sometime.

I might be porting a WordPress site with WooCommerce over to Rapidweaver so I had a chance to look into what was available. Check out Ecwid for ecommerce and it can be easily integrated with RW. Only downside is that there is a monthly cost, so it is worthwhile for businesses that are selling something other than a pdf or music file.

There’s still a free version of Ecwid that lets you sell up to 10 items. It has other limitations, obviously, but could suit some situations.

I appreciate the replies - I’m not looking for an e-commerce solution as such - just wondered why since Woocomerce seems to be free, why no one had ported it across.

VERY interesting regarding Blocs though!

Absolutely. You could design layout in Blocs and then export as a Wordpress Template and use WooCommerce. RW is not a good fit for WooCommerse.

Yeah the Blocs to Wordpress theme export will work exactly like this.
