  • Hi,
    I think I have read almost every post to do with ecommerce on modx but still am unsure of the best option for today.
    From what I have read the choices are:
    Modx + cubecart
    Modx - shopx
    Modx - xcart - still in idea phase?
    Modx - kiweecommerce
    Modx + Foxycart $ (and not yet for Australia)

    Is this it?
    Is Kiweecommerce the winner here?

    I think there are other successful options to use that haven’t been included in this list.

    When is modx ver 0.9.7 due? I was reading that it may include xcart?

    So many questions! Sorry.


    EDIT: So it looks like the latest plan is to combine oscommerce with modx. Has anyone done this seemlessly?
    If all else fails I’ll have to just use oscommerce which makes me sad - as I kinda like modx!
    • Looks like an Australian merchant provider was recently added to FoxyCart.

      • Maybe one other option here> Magento Open Source eCommerce.
        It looks promising and hopefully can be integrated into Modx
        very soon.
        • I think of the choices I would choose Foxycart as they are really ramping up internationalization and are HAVE implemented at least one payment gateway for Aussieland.

          Now all I have to do is convince them to get Canadian Taxes sorted and I’d be all on it.

          • I was wondering what the MODx site uses for the donate and contribute links (and how much trouble it is to set up).

            Is it just a straight connection to PayPal or is there an intermediary "cart"?

            I need something similar for a political organization’s site but don’t know what’s best to use with MODx.

                About FoxyCart and Australia,

                Yeh, they just made it possible with their newest release, v0.2.9 (eWAY just integrated in)...just came out within the last week I believe.

                I’ve been using FoxyCart as my sole e-commerce solution for all my websites b/c it’s so easy to set up, integrates right into your design. There is absolutely no hacking of any kind, just paste a few snippets into the body of your template a few links for CSS and JS into your header, and you’re good to go. Of course my favorite part of FoxyCart is that it fits like a glove with MODx. One of the 2 foundational designers behind FoxyCart solely uses MODx for his CMS solution and a lot of support is provided in FoxyCart’s docs for MODx users.

                Bob, you talked about a contribution link. Yeh, if you’re cool with just a simple button people click on to donate, a Paypal button is fine. Obviously the downside is that the landing page is a Paypal page giving you only the ability to put a small banner image at the top. But if you want the visitor to land on a page that looks the same as your site, FoxyCart is again the way to go. I just used FoxyCart for a political website (built using MODx) I just launched to handle donations:
