The current store hosted by Shopify has been restrictive and slow. So I’ve been working on switching over to a WooCommerce (wordpress) store hosted directly out of IoTaWatt.com. Not sure how it’s going to go, and I do expect some startup pains, but overall it should offer an “easier shopping experience” as they say and should be a big improvement in terms of administration.
I’m able to put together targeted bundles and to discount a broad range of accessories with an IoTaWatt purchase. Shipping will change as well.
Today I’m bringing the domain up under Cloudflare, which is a global caching service. Given that IoTaWatt customers are all over the world, I am hoping that this will make the upgrade process quicker and smoother as well as make the Stuff store more uniformly responsive. Some other benefits are that the site can act as a CDN to provision supporting code.
Expect to see the new store within a few days.
