We have a confession to make. Frankly, we’re becoming kind of shopaholics ;) After the release of Drupal Commerce 2.0, our passion for discussing and building cool Drupal 8 online stores keeps growing. But, considering the awesome modules for e-commerce in Drupal 8, it makes perfect sense!
In addition to these, however, there is a wealth of other helpful Drupal 8 contributed modules for online stores. While some of them are still in alpha or beta — their development will go quickly — we can take a look at a couple of examples right now!
Some Drupal 8 modules for e-commerce
It’s hard to imagine a Drupal 8 online store without good third-party integration. Here is a module that allows for online payments with Square payment gateway in Drupal Commerce. Tokenization, fraud monitoring, PCI compliance, and other features enhance payment security.
This module brings Stripe, the famous payment platform, to Drupal Commerce. It has advanced tokenization functionality for safety. Without leaving your online store, users can pay with almost anything — from Visa to BitCoin.
Another payment gateway, Paytrail, formerly known as Suomen Verkkomaksut, could come to your online store with the help of the module of the same name for Commerce. It supports S1 and E1 payment types.
What about Ubercart? There is a bunch of online payment modules for it as well. One of them connects the Danish payment gateway, QuickPay, to your online store. It offers two payment options: QuickPay Embedded and QuickPay Form. Its benefits include multiple language support, safety features, payment refund support, and more.
Effective e-commerce is inseparable from real-time customer service. So you will need a handy and powerful live chat application. The special module, created exceptionally for Drupal 8, integrates the Tawk.to chat with your Drupal 8 online store.
The VAT Number module is responsible for providing a new "VAT number" field, checking VAT structure, verifying VAT against EU SOAP server, making sure it matches the shipping country, and other useful things.
This tool allows you to harness the power of Ajax for your shopping cart. When new items are added, the information is updated without a page refresh, and a pop-up message informs you that you have successfully added something.
The Commerce Shipping module provides the calculation of shipping rates for goods. It integrates shipping service selection with your checkout and order edit form. You can make your flexible settings in the user interface.
Set an unlimited number of discounts for buying products in bulk. You can do it right from the product edit form thanks to the Volume Pricing module for Ubercart. It also lets you notify your customers about how much they could save if they buy more.
This is a user-friendly currency converter for Drupal websites, which allows your customer to quickly convert any currency into any other. You can use multiple currencies at a time, as well as swap currencies.
We promise you that you will never be able to tear your eyes from your magnetic and shiny Drupal 8 online store — soon you, too, will be addicted. Addicted? No, just in love!
