Selling Online with Drupal e-Commerce is a new book from Packt which will help users to sell online using the award-winning open-source Drupal web application. Written by Michael Peacock, this book provides the essentials of getting an e-commerce website up and running with Drupal.
Drupal is a free and open-source modular web application framework and content management system (CMS) written in PHP that can run in many environments; including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and FreeBSD. Drupal e-Commerce is a free, open-source, feature-rich, flexible package of modules that seamlessly adds full e-Store capabilities to Drupal.
Drupal e-Commerce is the combination of Drupal, the award-winning Drupal 5 content management system and the e-Commerce package of modules that can be plugged into it, bringing a wealth of e-commerce functionality to the software. In this book users will learn how to use the Drupal Content Management System along with its e-Commerce modules to set up and manage an online shop. Users will learn to install the software, take a look at its features, plan and create their shop, look at customer management, create a design for their shop, and cover security, taxes, shipping, and even marketing their business!
