Hold Your Breath! SP Page Builder Is Coming up With Its Own eCommerce

We are cooking up something new for you. It’s so good, that we’re tempted to keep it a secret. But we can’t wait to share a slice of what we have been pouring our hard work into!

It has everything you need to get started and there’s no limit to how big you can grow your business. I’m sure you can already guess by the title. Yes, you got it right! SP Page Builder is all set to have its own eCommerce that’s going to fully equip you to build your envisioned online store. That means you'll no longer need to use any third-party extensions to create an eCommerce site with SP Page Builder.

Excited to take a look at this much-awaited SP Page Builder eCommerce even before the launch? Take a peek to find out what’s coming soon. 

Integrate Seamless Shopping Experience

SP Page Builder eCommerce

SP Page Builder eCommerce is in the making to equip you with all the tools in one place to build and manage a successful online store. From customizing your store to managing every aspect of it, integrate a seamless shopping experience that’s guaranteed to expand your conversions! 

Lure Customers With Product Description 

There’s no doubt that a great product description can influence the purchase decision. Score the sale as well as boost your visibility and SEO on paid channels by adding scannable selling points. 

Add Multiple Images

When it comes to online shopping, it’s so important to help the shoppers visualize the products they are buying. And to do that, one product image per product simply won’t cut it!

Give your shoppers the best shopping experience by adding multiple images to showcase a product in all its details.  

Organize Your Products

What’s the first thing you do, when you step into a store? You look for a specific product by its categories and related items, right? Needless to point out, the same intuition also appears in online shopping.

With SP Page Builder’s eCommerce, you can help customers discover your products without a hiccup by adding categories, tags, names, and other associated information. 

Create Product Variants

Now, what’s a product variant you may ask? Let’s say you have a product available in 5 different sizes and 5 different colors, then there is a total of 25 variations of the same product.

SP Page Builder eCommerce will come with a Product Variant feature that will let you create and manage multiple variants of a product with ease. All you have to do is define the options and let your favorite SP Page Builder work its magic!

Manage Product Variants

For product variants, you’ll also need to manage the sales record and stock for each product variant. SP Page Builder eCommerce will let you add or change attributes to variants, manage images and other settings on the variant level, and also create variant-level promotions and activities. Amazing, isn’t it?  

Automatically Track Inventory

SP Page Builder eCommerce

SP Page Builder eCommerce will only simplify your workflow and save time! It will come with automated inventory management that will let you manage your entire stock count from one simple and intuitive interface.

You won’t have to manually update anything! The product will automatically be set to out of stock when the stock reaches zero. Not only that, but you can also hide or display stock count, and do so much more!  

Define Multiple Tax Rates

SP Page Builder eCommerce

With SP Page Builder eCommerce, setting up the tax rates will be the easiest ever. We’ve kept the entire process as simple and intuitive as possible so that you can enjoy a friction-free experience. 

You can define tax rates per country/region, enable tax on shipping, and do plenty more! Also, you’ll get to decide if you want to add taxes to prices on your product or calculate tax in the checkout process.

Ship Your Products Worldwide

SP Page Builder eCommerce

Shipping your goods to customers is one of the most important parts of your business. With the SP Page Builder eCommerce, you’ll be able to quickly set up your shipping zones, and shipping methods. You can also add rates and delivery to your defined shipping methods. 

The good part is, that you’ll be able to create as many zones as you like and add multiple methods and rates to each zone.

Maximize Conversion With Multiple Payment Methods

SP Page Builder eCommerce

Let the customers decide their preferred payment method for their purchase and expand your conversion rate. SP Page Builder eCommerce will support multiple payment gateways and manual payment options like cash on delivery to optimize your payment methods. 

Create the Perfect Checkout Experience

SP Page Builder eCommerce

Don’t chase away potential customers with an overwhelming checkout experience. Make the checkout process as flexible as possible displaying checkout policies and allowing guest purchase, account creation during checkout, and more. 

You’ll also get the option to determine what happens after a customer clicks the Add to Cart button.

Evaluate the Performance of Your Business

SP Page Builder eCommerce

With SP Page Builder eCommerce, you’ll not only enjoy the best-in-class eCommerce functionalities but also some very useful analytics features. It will provide an in-depth report so that you can track the performance of your business and adjust your strategies based on data-driven insights. 

Here, you’ll get extensive analytics on your Order, Sales, and Revenue like the total number of orders received, goods sold, gross sales, total sales, returns, etc. You can filter the data by time and also download the report in a CSV file if needed. 

Display Product Reviews & Ratings

SP Page Builder eCommerce

Product reviews are arguably the most useful way to eliminate shoppers’ concerns regarding a product. They help build trust and provide better insights into the product.

You can allow customers to rate and review the product they purchased and hide or display them on the storefront. 

Set Your Preferred Currency & Weight Units 

SP Page Builder eCommerce

Want to sell in your preferred currency? You can do that too! Get the freedom to choose the currency the store will be priced in. You can also select your preferred weight unit to define the weight and dimensions of your products. 

Generate Coupons & Promotions

SP Page Builder eCommerce

Who doesn’t love discount coupons when it comes to shopping? They not only increase sales but also drive traffic to your site. And guess what? With SP Page Builder eCommerce, you can effortlessly create coupon codes and vouchers, and set discount/offer prices for the products. 

When Is It Coming?

I have read the article carefully, I think I have used all the ecommerce extensions for Joomla that currently exist in projects for my clients, as well as other specific solutions for example Prestashop.

The music sounds good, I'll keep an eye on the progress. That SP Page Builder allows you to integrate an ecommerce solution is good news.

It is not important that the system has an additional cost, most Joomla extensions for ecommerce are paid. The really important thing is security and robustness. An online store cannot be closed for a minute due to system errors

An ecommerce platform becomes a simple catalog if it does not allow specific payment options for each country, for example, Redysy in Spain. Merchants shy away from generic payment systems that apply large commissions.

Cheer up!

This is great, many are taking their heads right now, others will die and others will reinvent, but in the end it will always be better for Joomla.

Now if you add to this options of subscriptions and sale of single or bundles of digital products with access levels to manage downloads and support. I think it would be a dream come true. I look forward to this Joonshaper team, you guys are great. My congratulations to all.

Having worked with VirtueMart, J2Store, Prestashop and Woocommerce I think that has enormous potential if done right.
Do you plan to integrate a Plugin Interface? Having worked on a lot of Shops it is extremley important to have easy to integrate custom functionality (Custom Overwrites and Layouts, Custom Payment Methods, Custom logic for taxes & shipping).

Hi, Joom Shaper, very exciting news. I know it sounds too good to be true. The other ecommerce solutions develop their software for years and they do ONLY this.
For a new ecommerce solution to work, make profit for you, to find its place to that busy market, you need to target the users of other ecommerce solutions which already have (big) estores. This means you must have a solution to import products from other ecommerce solutions. If your idea is to target new users which need little estores with no more than 50 products, then your ecommerce solution has no future.

But I expect the unexpected. I'm with you and have fingers crossed this to become true. :)

Hi! This is good news. In my experience, it is very important to make integration with crm and a module for automatic unloading of goods and orders into an xml file for online commerce. As well as a module for automatic conversion of the exchange rate at the rate of the local central bank for the possibility of sales in any countries and regions.

Multi-Vendor.. Why dont you use one of the many big Components. Joomla is not made for "Multi-Vendor" systems..

Why dont yxou use one of these;
Magento. Magento ist eines der Open Source Shop-Systeme, die mit der Dual-License-Strategie auf dem deutschen Markt erhältlich sind. ...
- Shopify
- Orocommerce. ...
- Xt:Commerce. ...
- Gambio GX3. ...
- Oxid Eshop. ...
- Prestashop. ...
- Modified E-Commerce. ...
- H.H.G Multistore.

you guys are all so over motivated and frustrated when its not working.. Joomla is not made for this. i dont now any good working shop (ore multi vendor) running succesfull on wordpress ore joomla and these fine little Solutions. not ione in my 30 years of experiences.

What Joomshaper schould not do now is another blown up Project..
As you can see, Page Builder has now so many Functions, that its near to impossible to make it run (from the Front-End Edit).

Best Wishes and much success.

Please excuse me if I take the liberty of criticizing you.

you are too fast... you should have a schedule and slow down. you need serious consulting i feel. you have grown too fast.

even before we make sure that your front-end is up and running, you go one better with a store function. That's great... but you see what different fordwrungen the people (customers) have to these.

You should follow a line and not again over-inflated projects tackle, where your customers are frustrated because certain things do not work as they have in my case actually not funktioiert for 2 whole years.

I had actually built a larger business on you and your developments and now I have to realize that I expected too much.

I'm sorry if I'm stepping on your toes or offending you.

please forgive... but, I wanted to get rid of the al.

warmest greetings

Dear Se,

Thanks for the detailed suggestions and all.

What makes you think that the team doesn't have any schedule, I really don't know, I am afraid to say with all due respect.

Well, SP Page Builder updates have nothing to do with eCommerce, people will keep getting the updates. SP Page Builder 4 will be more mature with time.

Please contact us with your detailed problems, we are really sorry to hear that you are struggling with your business just for SP Page Builder 4 has a front-end editor! We want to hear from you. Shoot us a message on our official Facebook page or share your email ID with our support team on live chats so that we can get back to you ASAP.

Sorry, don't want to be a "partypooper", but I do not get your product marketing and policy. Why in the world do you extend a pagebuilder extension with such a special functionality?!? Doesn't make sense at all to me. You know, I am a customer for several years and do support your products as far as I can in my current situation and financial abilities. To my understanding your pagebuilder is a general layout and design tool, which can be integrated with other extensions. I mean, an entire shop system? Shouldn't it work the other way around? You create a new, modern shop extension/component... and the pagebuilder is able to work inside it's views? Or special add-ons integrate the shop elements inside regular pagebuilder pages!?!
You blog post sounds very strange and unclear about the actual technical realization. It promotes the pagebuilder as the main product and parent component, where you add a complete differently purposed e-commerce solution. I AM confused, and most likely others too.

It seems like the other users said it all. As long as the website doesn't go down (I recently tried SP Page builder, and the whole website went completely down, so I had to wipe it and re-install it again, and it was having almost nothing on it, because I had just started it), that sounds like a good idea to me. I am tired of having to install too many extensions made by different several makers, it makes my life hell and troubleshooting the website issues very hard.
But the idea is very ambitious, and you have to be aware of the implications of your statement, as people from VirtueMart and other platforms might consider your product, and have unrealistic expectations. I have tried for years to build a proper online shop on Joomla, which was able to offer an e-commerce solution, online digital selling platform, equipment rental and online booking system, and I have been let down by almost all the joomla components, due to both the quality of the products, and the consistency of their bug-fix ability, and development.
So, what you are claiming, is huge. Just be aware...

Local payment gateway developers only develop for popular and large audience ecommerce. There are very good Joomla extensions for ecommerce that do not have local payment gateways, which makes them a simple catalog.
