eCommerce for Umbraco with simplicity at heart

Vendr is the award winning eCommerce solution for Umbraco with simplicity at the heart of everything we do. 

By focusing on simplicity we provide the essential components for an eCommerce solution but at the same time expose as many extension points as possible, affording developers the opportunity to create slick, high performance, content-lead eCommerce solutions, bespoke to their clients needs.

Why Vendr?

Powerful yet friendly, Vendr provides a fully integrated approach to eCommerce on Umbraco, following many of the design queues found in Umbraco itself, to make it instantly familiar to users.

At it's core, Vendr uses the power of published content for it's product nodes allowing developers to create and extend product content using all of Umbraco's document types and property editors features. By using Umbraco in this way it allows the entire catalogue of third party Umbraco packages to automatically work with Vendr, making it fit into any project with minimal (re)engineering.

On top of this, Vendr has many of it's own extension points, from validation and notification events, to customised calculators and payment providers. With Vendr you can tailor eCommerce to fit your exact needs, rather than being forced to change your processes to fit your platform.
