Snipcart

Introduction

After testing all available options for Kirby CMS e-commerce integration, we chose Snipcart as the best among them, by far.
The main reasons are:
  • Many payment gataways + custom payment gataway integration if needed
  • Advanced tax support
  • Advanced shipping support with most popular providers automation support
  • Advanced invoicing support
  • Advanced regional and currency settings
  • Multilanguage and multicurrency support
  • Advanced emails support with abandoned carts recovery campaigns
  • Digital products support
  • Subscriptions support, although for now in beta, and only avaliable for Stripe payment gataway
  • It is free to start, no expensive subscription
Also, very important thing is that Snipcart developing team is very active, not just in the development part, but also in the support. In many ways they share similar philosophy as Kirby.
