Ecwid e-commerce widgets Today we went live with a new interface to the download store section of the Kyserike Kraftsman website. We did this for a number of reasons. The old code that ran the store was back level and not easily upgraded, maintenance of the old software was also difficult to do, and the store front code was not geared toward selling digital products, so it took quite a big of rework to produce what we wanted. It was time to take the plunge and switch.

We chose ECWID to run the store. This shopping cart software looks to be a winner. It’s unique in that the core code runs on their servers rather than mine so they are responsible for keeping the code up to date. Once less thing for me to worry about. The user interface is very configurable and intuitive. The support looks great. We took the time to make the switch and it looks like it will be worth the effort.

Now that the switch is over, it’s time to get away from the computer and back into the workshop. I hope to produce a few more plans this year that I will make available on the site. Please let me know if you have any problems with the download store, and I also welcome feedback on your buying experience.

Have a safe and enjoyable Holiday !
