E-commerce site with eZ Publish. What is needed?

Tuesday 12 June 2012 4:13:23 pm - 5 replies

I want to create an e-commerce web site to sell different products over the Internet. Where should I start when tackling such a project? What parts of the documentation covers this the best? And what functionality does eZ publish already have for this? I've never used eZ publish before, but I am familiar with PHP. I want to have as much ready-made functionaltiy as possible, and generally do as little coding as possible.

There is a native solution in eZ Publish :


You can also use an extension :


If you prefer Magento, you can use this:


Best regards.

Hi and welcome to eZ Community !

Just a note about Webshop. Since eZ 4.3 / 4.4 this functionality is marked as deprecated. For a really small ecommerce website you could use it. For a big one and/or multi country, forget it happy.gif Emoticon

Forget it, like Philippe Vincent-Royol wrote, are the wrong words, but it isn't possible without coding.

The xrowecommerce extension has some nice functions, but if u aren't familar with ez it will be hard to modify it to your needs.

eZ 2 Magento is an interface and u only get it at eZ Market.

The main question u should ask; what payment do u need? - if the payment method don't exist for ez it could be better to use Magento.


best regards,

I also have to disagree with PVR.

The ez-webshop is in fact quite capable and very extensible.

There are many open source extensions on the site that allow it to plug in to existing payment systems.

The main problems it has are, imho:

- it is not very well documented

- extending it is often complicated

- no built-in support for inventory

- no built-in support for vouchers (but there might be community extensions that add this)
