We would like to present CommerceBox, a ready-made online store package based on both Drupal 7 and Drupal Commerce. Drupal Commerce module appears to be the only available solution (among Drupal 7 modules) today which allows creating a full-fledged functional online-shop.Part of the intrigue here lies in the fact that, while being a most flexible solution for the programmer, this one is far from being a boxed module, as was the case with Ubercart.
Here, with Drupal Commerce everething is different. This module is more 'framework like', it is tuned in to the programmer. Programmers can make mirracles with it. But the average user or a newby programmer needs something to get it going. Here you are, Commerce Box means a good start in your programming effort.
With Commerce Box package we have tried to create the bases for an online-store deployment.
Drupal Commerce module was based on Drupal API , accordingly, it automatically used all opportunities provided by the Drupal core. Besides, Drupal Commerce has a powerfull API, by itself. As a Drupal developer, you can easily extend the functionality of your web store using both Drupal and Drupal Commerce API.
Inside the module (briefly and to the point) there are:
- admin panel to manage products: some ideas borrowed from Magento
- the cover of internet shop: main page, product card, catalogue
- virtual features aplenty
