Shopify and Wordpress This post is outdated

Is there a way to embed the shopping cart for a shopify site in wordpress?  Or is there a shopify module for wordpress?  I have a current Wordpress site that I would like to be able to integrate with our Shopify site.  Any help with this would be great.

The best way to do this is to simply have a CNAME record for your shop such as shop.my-domain.com. There is really no way to embed your whole store into wordpress. If you only have a few products that you want to feature on your blog that's another story: http://wiki.shopify.com/Adding_to_the_Cart_from_a_remote_website

You can also add the shop to the navigation of your WordPress site using the custom menu's of WordPress.

Also, depending on your theme, adding Widgets, ad space, banners with url redirects, etc. Will tie in your blog to your store.

Also - in the other direction, putting your blog into the navigation of Shopify.

A lot of sites do this..

Hello

I am not sure if this will help, but we have just launched a new widget that displays your Shopify products in a widget on your WordPress website!

Check it out: http://codecanyon.net/item/smshopify-wordpress-plugin/1259786

Thanks

Shopify has an easy to use in-house solution for this launched yesterday. Anyone can use it for free: http://apps.shopify.com/shopify_applications/shopify-widgets

Hey Jamie

Looks good, but like all apps I am sure there are a few things that are limited. We aim to improve our plugin/widget based on users feedback.

Great! Choice is good. Shopify intends to update and improve the inhouse app as well. The plus it it can be embedded on any site so for anyone who needs this feature for a non wordpress site as well:

Hi Jamie - is that right, I'm wanting blogger as stated before.

I emailed shopify one on the app page, thinking it was splitmango's one - but not heard from anyone.

would be great to get the blogger compatibility confirmed, Jamie :)

Should work Rachel. I don't have a blogger to test on and I'm hitting the sack, 14hr day today. If you try it out post back your results, but I'm confident they will be good :D

it most certainly does work, and I love it!

this is what I've been waiting for :)

now when I feature a new product on my blog, I can also stick a 'buy it now' button with it in the post, how cool is that?!

I would also like to see a slide show kind of widget, so that you can have a collection scrolling past, and takes you to that collection. Widgets.com and others do them but the styling is always awful, and there's adverts.

but as this goes, thumbs up from me

Excellent! Make sure you leave feedback on the app in the app store!

Hi Jamie - Is there a way to display the shopping cart count ( for example: 1 item in your cart. ) in wordpress? I just want to display the number of cart item added by the user when the user navigates from shopify to wordpress site. Please advise.

Thanks and Regards,

Maria Ignatius Ephrem. J

Thanks, really like that you can include the whole store, but it needs to be re-sizable (may have just made up a word!).  I'd like to use this instead of a flat banner advert on other sites but I need to scale it to suite their pre-determined sizes i.e. standard web banner sizes.
