I am so excited! For awhile now I have been working on getting an online commerce solution up and running on this site . The major hurdle was choosing which one of the many different payment solutions I wanted to add. There are many options, but most of them are rather costly with monthly fees. I ended up going for two that only charge a fee whenever I sell something. Paypal and Stripe. Installing the plug in WooCommerce went without a glitch, but I had to have some help getting the SSL-certificate installed. Now all I have to do is actually adding products. Whew!
So why going through all this trouble? I like working out from my own site, as I see the commercial ones changing the algorithm often. It can sometimes be time consuming to keep up. I want to test this out for a bit, and see where it leads. Besides, it is fun doing new things. I will continue to add to my Etsy shop , as well as doing a few shows every year.
