Product Description

This book will show you how to sell online using the award-winning open-source Drupal web application. No prior experience of Drupal is required; you will learn all you need as you step through the creation of an online shop. You will learn the basics of Drupal, and see how to use the standard features of Drupal to begin construction of an online shop, and improve the selling interface, handling of orders, and reporting with new modules and other customizations. This book is for people who want to start selling online as quickly as possible, and want to see how to use the proven Drupal platform to achieve this. The book is ideal for use in a small business with only basic in-house technical skills. It will also be useful for developers who not only want to create an e-commerce site, but also want a CMS platform for expanding the site in the future. No prior knowledge of Drupal is required. No PHP experience is expected, although it will be useful. Basic knowledge of e-commerce will also be useful, although the main concepts are introduced and covered as required.

1Drupal E-Commerce is an app superceded by Ubercart etc.
By Gaines I Milligan
Drupal E-Commerce thruned out to be useless since the book is about the no longer widely used "E-Commerce" module whcih has been superceded by Drupal Ubercart and later modules. The information in the book is not applicable to currently used and supported Drupal platforms. It was a waste of money.

5A book that works!
By Chris Hobbs
I have read many books about using particular software applications. Almost always the instructions given are incomplete or don't work without some technical work on the part of the reader. Normally the author of the book hasn't paid enough attention to the state already stored on his or her computer and, when a reader follows the written instructions, all sorts of peculiar little problems arise: file not found, environment variable not set, etc.

I worked through this book from cover to cover and, put simply, it was correct. Everything it said worked first time.

I installed Drupal and eCommerce on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and simply followed the instructions in this book. Within an hour I had an eCommerce website up and running.

I strongly recommend this book (and the underlying Drupal and eCommerce packages) to anyone setting up an eCommerce web site for a small or medium business.

3Drupal e-Commerce
By D. Dekker
I know my way around drupal fairly well and the book helped still. The book covered some of the basic Drupal stuff but was very helpful in explaining order of operation on things such as payment options; ubercart setup and things. I gave it 3 stars it was a good read, but I was hoping for a little more techy stuff.
