Drupal Commerce: Setting up Shop on Drupal 7
Drupal Commerce is the next generation e-commerce module suite for Drupal 7. The project is a re-implementation of Ubercart's core feature set on Drupal 7 using the best new core Drupal features and depending on the strongest Drupal contributions. Drupal Commerce can be dropped into existing Drupal sites to add targeted e-commerce functionality to the site or used as the basis for full-blown Drupal e-commerce distributions.
This session will introduce the basics of Drupal Commerce, including product creation and display, the shopping cart and flexible checkout workflow, and back-end order administration. For those already familiar with Ubercart, this session will demonstrate the evolution of features from Ubercart to Drupal Commerce and explain the key differences you should keep in mind as you migrate old sites or start from scratch on Drupal 7.
