    I seem to remember that e-commerce functionality was supposed to come last year, possibly via Snipcart or Stripe. Is there a tentative timeline when we can expect this now, and any word if it’s more likely to be Snipcart or Stripe? I’m in the middle of rebuilding my site (with the Sources theme) and wouldn’t really want to waste time on learning how to integrate either tool, only to see them being delivered a few weeks later as part of the next release …

    I too am interested in using Stripe integration.

    From what I have gathered so far, Stripe has issues displaying the VAT information in the correct way, so that it is conforming to German law. So using Stripe probably won’t really work for me. I am still evaluating Snipcart integration, but I wish I knew whether I was wasting my time or what the future plans for Publii e-commerce were. I really want to leave WordPress and WooCommerce behind me.

    Update: It looks like Snipcart is a dead horse. They were bought by Duda and are so busy integrating Snipcart’s features into Duda and facing “serious bandwidth and prioritization challenges”, they hardly even answer support questions or visit their own forum anymore. They’ve more or less gone AWOL for at least six months, to a point where their paying customers are getting uneasy. (I have only used their test environment, to check what is and isn’t possible.)

    So I guess it’s Stripe for me, though I really hate their backend. *sighs* But since Snipcart’s in bed with Duda, I don’t think that any close work with Publii is very likely.

    10-4.  Thanks for the update.  Stripe seems like the only real path forward.  Linking out to Stripe that is.  That’s what I”m going to pursue.

    Not sure how complex you need the solution to be, or what type of product you sell, but I’d give Payhip a try. I’m pretty sure it handles VAT.

    Otherwise, there’s also Paddle and Lemon Squeezy.

    Stripe integration is an incredibly useful tool for anyone who runs an online business, whether it’s a small startup or a larger enterprise. With Stripe, users can easily and securely process payments online, making it an invaluable tool for anyone who wants to sell products or services online.
