Question posted by weddingup workspace (slackbot)

I have a friend who wants to have a website built and he will only be selling 2 products but can act as a blog where he can add commentary from his newsletter. He was going to build it himself with wordpress and woo commerce (and Stripe for payment processing). My question is, for such a simple site, do you think there are more efficient or easier platforms he can use? I’m going to see eventually if he will talk to you guys.

A simple custom web development would suffice. The requirement goes like this, today there are 2 products, tomorrow there could be 10 and then 100 😀

Why not to spend little time with custom web and Stripe or Paypal integration. A minimalist website with Products, Blogs, Contacts etc. should be good.

Do you think wordpress is still a good option for that?

I would say, it depends on the requirement. For a standard simple eCommerce solution, it should be fine. However the complexity comes with the custom development and other dynamic feature integration with API etc. There are pros and cons. With a simple custom implementation, cost wise it’s one time but in future it’s easy to extend and add features as you grow.

There are couple of options with the standard per-defined solutions ex: https://www.ecwid.com/demo/
