  • Floyd's E-Commerce: from Squarespace to Solidus
    2 projects | | 21 Jun 2022
    In 2014, Floyd was lesser known as The Floyd Leg. Our website was on Squarespace for both its e-commerce solution and web hosting. A large part of our current success was realized by choosing to invest in a custom web application that’s built with Solidus. With our website no longer abstracted by a WYSIWYG ("What You See Is What You Get") editor, we partnered with Nebulab to handle full-stack web development. Solidus (Spree, at the time, before it was acquired, forked, and renamed) was recommended to power the e-commerce part of our application. The decision to go custom came after a successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2015 for the Floyd Legs—a set of four steel table legs that fastened onto any flat surface to quickly put a table together. We proved a market need for adaptable and sustainable furniture design. The co-founders, Kyle Hoff and Alex O’Dell, knew there were more product offerings on the roadmap as they championed Floyd to be the furniture solution for all apartment essentials. Fast forward to 2019, Floyd is seeking to be the furniture solution for the entire home worldwide.

    I'd say Solidus and Spree are you best options rather than trying to roll out you own ecommerce solution.

    Completely agree. Alternatively, I would look for an open source project like solidus

    Hey there! I'm about to set up a small eshop (expected around 50 orders/month) for a relative (an artist). I've contemplated what's available, and I'm not very happy with what I found.

    - There's Woocommerce, which I've installed and tried doing basic setup, and it's too deeply bloated in the Wordpress ecosystem. My first impression from Prestashop was that it's going to be quite a similar PHP mess

    - I don't want to get vendor locked-in with things like Shopify. They also don't seem to offer much design customizability (I'm a web dev and there's quite a unique design concept for the site from the artist)

    - Searching GitHub for ecommerce, Solidus[1] looked quite promising, however, it also slightly overshoots the border of 'too complex' for me, and their docs on integrating a custom payments provider (a strict requirement - not US based) aren't really great


    So my question is: are there any borderline-pet projects I've missed?

    I've been doing web dev for over 2 years now, so I'm also thinking about building my own almost-serverless solution. Is that plausible in reasonable time (wouldn't want to give this more than 2 weeks), or are there too many holes to fall into even though the sensitive part of payments is handled by a simple integration?

    One more bit of info, together with building this, their whole web is going to be transferred to a new CMS, likely the Netlify headless CMS (IMO a very cool concept - no backend, frontend uses GitHub http API to directly commit any saved changes). Therefore ideally I'd love to integrate the products inventory into this CMS, which saves data into markdown + front matter, and then can be built into HTML or any JSON to be fetched by frontend - that's why I said almost-serverless.
