Developing the New NSF Online Store
« on: 03/14/2018 12:58 PM »
We've had various versions of this over the years, the last being a cafepress store for merchandise with the previous logo on it.

Served its role. I still have various items and they've lasted well, but we really need to take advantage of the latest online store models and also have a lot more than just mugs and such with the site's logo on it. NSF likes to be different.

Wish list includes:

Ability to remotely design products (baseline products, add designs...calendars, etc.)
Quality of product.
Product range.
International shipping.
Discount code ability for L2 members.

The standard line would be items with the site's logo, but unique merchandise, utilizing our amazing photographers and render experts is attractive to me, so will likely be attractive to most on here and such items could be revenue shared promotions.

Throw your ideas in here, also links to other online stores you've had good experiences with as potential merchants and so on. Everything good we do here is thanks to the large community coming up with the best ideas.

Have you considered using shopify? A lot of newer estores are using it. Push Plastics, fillastuder, are two great examples if you are into 3D printing. It supports all major payment systems like standard CCs, Apple pay, amazon pay and others. It super nice on both mobile and desktop.
