In the last couple of years we’ve seen a lot of movement in the e-commerce space for ExpressionEngine. It used to be that you had to use a solution that wasn’t exactly a good fit…but it worked. We now have Cartthrob, BrilliantRetail and others.
In a big win for Brilliant2, EllisLab is switching to their BrilliantRetail software for their store. They hope to launch the new store before EECI, but they’re not certain if that’ll happen. From Leslie’s blog post at EllisLab.com:
We’ve been working with David and Tony from Brilliant2 to relaunch the ExpressionEngine Store on BrilliantRetail, their excellent ecommerce add-on for ExpressionEngine. They’ve been a joy to work with and we’ve given them permission to release all the custom work we commissioned into future versions of BrilliantRetail. We can’t be more specific about this until the store launches. Honestly we’re not sure if this will happen before or after EECI, but we’re doing our best to make it before.
I know what you’re thinking…why not Cartthrob? Me too.
