What's happening in the world of Drupal Commerce.

Capitalizing on the Chinese eCommerce Boom

China has now surpassed the U.S. as the largest eCommerce economy in the world. The Chinese have a strong desire to purchase overseas, demonstrated by the fact that nearly half of Chinese International eCommerce dollars are spent at U.S. websites. Online merchants worldwide are experiencing soaring revenues by capturing a piece of the tremendous discretionary income Chinese shoppers are ready to spend.

Building your eEmpire: eCommerce from the Ground Up

Times are changing. Many folks have smartphones in hand and 64% of them are using their mobile devices to shop online.* 72% of tablet owners make purchases from their devices weekly as well**.

By the end of 2014, Forrester Research estimates there will be $248.7 billion in online sales. That's in the US alone. Over five years, they're forecasting a 10% annual compound growth. Europe is even bigger, with an 11% annual compound growth rate (that's 191 billion Euros by 2017, if you're counting).

eCommerce is a big deal. If you're not paying attention, you should be!

Drupal.org reports over 80,000+ active Ubercart and Drupal Commerce installations. That’s great news! With such a large and active portion of our community involved in eCommerce, effort and resources must go toward helping these websites achieve the mandatory security standards set forth by the Payment Card Industry (PCI).

Increase conversion and boost sales across the holiday period!

Online retailers are spending increasing amounts of their marketing budget driving traffic to their stores but when customers get there, only a small percentage actually go on to buy anything. This is a huge opportunity cost and increasing numbers of retailers are turning to personalization to help solve it.

In this webinar you will learn how to increase conversion and average order value by delivering your customers a personalized shopping experience.

Improve conversion and increase sales for the Holidays

Do you need to improve conversion rates on your site and capture more sales at checkout? Have you discovered how vital mobile is to your business? Are you giving customers options and flexibility when it comes to how they pay online?

The holidays will be here before you know it, and you need to be ready.

If you’re a retailer or marketer, your success is dependent on turning browsers into buyers. And if you’re a developer or site-builder, you need to be delivering engaging shopping experiences to your clients that convert into sales for them and new business for you.

This year's BADCamp will feature an eCommerce Summit on Thursday, October 24th from 9 AM to 5 PM in the Berkeley City Club.

Drupal Commerce 1.6 Released

This evening I released Drupal Commerce 1.6 after a fun sprint of last minute bug fixing and feature postponing. My condolences to those whose favorite upcoming features didn't make the cut. : )

The last release of the core Drupal Commerce project was just shy of two months ago. In that time I've had the pleasure of committing 50+ patches from 34 different contributors (including myself). Over half of the contributors to this release were first time contributors to the project, and together they helped us close out 25+ bug reports, bringing our active count down to a mere 26. Can't wait to hit the mythical issue queue zero!

Read on for a summary of the greatest new features and most celebrated bug fixes.
