Ecommerce template without checkout

Anyone know if I can I install and run a ecommerce template without a ecommerce plan?

The reason is that I´m talking to a friend who want to showcase products like if it was a ecommerce website, but he does not want to sell online, just to have a contact form and talk one on one.

I want to know this before I purchase the template :sweat_smile:

I suggest looking at Foxy.io as their product can be used as a catalog cart and converted to a sales cart at your convenience. You don’t need an e-commerce plan with Webflow to do it.

Thanks @webdev!

Hi @Neo237. What you’re after is possible with Foxy + Webflow. Foxy can be integrated with any purchase or custom built Webflow template. Manage products with Webflow’s CMS and allow customers to add products to cart and checkout without having to actually pay.

More info on our seamless Webflow integration can be found here: https://www.foxy.io/webflow I invite you to sign up for our unlimited free trial and please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, need help getting started, or would like to see a proof of concept.

Thanks,
Josh

Thanks @webdev and @foxy

Great, so just to be clear. I can get a Webflow template and add the Foxy service to it with the unlimited free trail to showcase all my products with price, but without getting into the ecommerce plan with weblow or price plan with foxy. is that right?

Hi @Neo237.
To confirm, you’ll still need a paid plan with Foxy when you’re ready to go live, but our unlimited free trial allows you to build and test for as long as you need to.

Correct, Webflow Ecommerce plan is not needed and Foxy will integrate with any template. :slight_smile: Let us know if you have any other questions. Also, if a phone/Skype call would be helpful, we can make it happen.

Thanks,
Josh

Thanks @foxy,

Just to be sure, returning to the innitial question, @webdev is it possible just to purchase an ecommerce template, install it and use it with a normal hosting without the “cart” or shopping abilities?

I have not done what you asked and I don’t use Webflow e-commerce at this time for some client specific reasons. @nelson or someone from the WF team might be able to address your question.

I do know that enabling E-commerce, installs additional JavaScript and template / pages that will become part of the project forever as there is no way to uninstall them without a restore. There was a thread recently that spoke to your question. I don’t have it bookmarked but will try to find it for you.

@Neo237 @webdev

I’ve confirmed with the Webflow team that to use any Webflow Ecommerce features, you’ll need to have a Webflow Ecommerce plan. Maybe someone from the team can chime in and confirm.

Thanks,
Josh
