This web store has been reincarnated several times. I have tried at least four ecommerce software packages. Most of them far more professional than I need. My Ramblin Dan’s Store has been operational on ZenCart for a decade. It’s been running in the AWS cloud.
KautzCraft Store has been much more experimental. The Last package was PrestaShop. It ran off on a tangent and wouldn’t let me make edits or update the software. I suspect some update changes I made in the PHP package on the webserver didn’t agree with its needs.
The software in use here right now is WordPress and WooCommerce. The totally new install went very well and so did loading in the products and all the other setup. I think it is fully functional at this point.
There is a lot more I want to add and change and will always be “tweaking” things. So, it will be a work-in-progress. It one of those projects that is not ever really “done”.
My other store websites made it very difficult to add custom pages and especially blogs. WordPress is a blogging software so no problem. Pages are also easy. I am going to like this setup.
KautzCraft Studio is a functional business but small scale. Something a retired craftsperson can handle. I think this new overhaul is just the fix I need.
Site registration is possible when placing an initial order. Registration for any other reason is nonproductive. I don’t do direct marketing. Registration is optional and helps track your orders
There is a lot of privacy legal mumbo-jumbo now required on websites. You will see some posted here. Be assured I have no use or time for prying into your private browsing habits. Just enough so I can deliver what you purchase. No credit information is ever stored in the KautzCraft servers.
