"Leading eCommerce services companies are recognizing the momentum behind Drupal Commerce and Commerce Guys. Commerce Village is about bringing it all together to inform the community about our expanding ecosystem,” said Frédéric Plais, CEO of Commerce Guys. "Because it's built on a leading content management system, Drupal Commerce has an advantage over other eCommerce solutions, and the providers we are bringing to Commerce Village represent some of the best systems and services in eCommerce.”
Commerce Village is themed after the legendary Oregon Trail to honor the journey thousands of pioneers traversed in the mid-1800’s to reach Oregon. The Village's motto “Blaze Your Own Trail” refers to the flexibility and options open to those building sites with Drupal Commerce.
"Drupal Commerce is a leading-edge eCommerce platform that is on a growth trajectory. More and more e-tailers are recognizing the benefits of Drupal for its flexibility and power, "said Sandra Chesnutt, SVP of Marketing for PayLeap, an Acculynk Solution. "Since Drupal is an open framework, integrating our service was surprisingly easy. We're looking forward to engaging with merchants, site builders and other Drupal aficionados in Commerce Village during DrupalCon."
