To whom it may interest,
I really hope Webflow succeeds in the ecommerce venture, but I think the Webflow development team might be in over their heads.
I’ve ran ecommerce businesses for about 12 years and ecommerce functionality is incredibly complex and nuanced. Adding ecommerce functionality to a web design platform such as Webflow is a major business and strategy decision, not just an “added feature”. With ecommerce comes PCI compliance issues, sales tax, shipping calculations, product management, product options, inventory control, backorder controls, coupon functionality, order management, customer management, order fulfillment, subscription functionality, backend management, etc… then a tidal wave of feature requests, integration requests, and bug fixes related to all-of-the-above.
Foxycart has a long history in ecommerce, a small nimble team, a very flexible shopping cart model, a robust set of features for subscription products, PCI compliance, etc… While Webflow has a beautiful and intuitive design platform, it seems like Foxycart + Webflow would be a great strategic partnership.
I also started a thread about a Foxy + Webflow partnership here: https://forum.foxycart.com/discussion/11509/webflow-foxycart-partnership?new=1
Either way, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for the best!
