Webvanta Blog: Creating Effective Websites

Building an E-Commerce Site with Webvanta and FoxyCart

If you want to sell things on your web site, you need a way to accept payments. There’s many ways to do this, depending on your needs.

Rather than building payment processing into Webvanta, we’ve chosen to make it easy to integrate your Webvanta site with a variety of different solutions, so you can choose the one that best meets your needs.

If your needs are simple, and you aren’t concerned with keeping the entire payment experience branded with your site’s brand, PayPal is very easy to integrate. You can simply create PayPal payment buttons and paste the code that PayPal provides into your Webvanta site.

If you want a more sophisticated and branded experience, however, you’ll probably want something more. We’ve partnered with FoxyCart to provide an easily customized and nicely streamlined shopping cart and payment processing solution.

FoxyCart and Webvanta make a great pair, because Webvanta provides a super-flexible solution for your product database and product pages, while FoxyCart provides a slick and secure shopping cart that acts like an integrated part of your site. Your visitors get the benefit of guest or registered user checkout, and all the shipping options you want to offer. FoxyCart handles taxes, handling fees, quantity discounts, electronic product (download) delivery, recurring billing, and more.

Here’s a few examples of Webvanta sites that use FoxyCart:
