    enables selling on websites

    While strictly, this book says you need no prior experience with Drupal, it can also be considered a sequel to Building powerful and robust websites with Drupal 6. The latter concerned itself with general purpose websites, with some emphasis on handling user contributions, like blogging. But Peacock addresses the case where your website has commercial intent. You are selling something on it. There are numerous topics. Along with roles, which are primarily customer and staff in this situation. Logically, we start with making content. A catalog of items for sale. The museum example chosen in the text lends itself to easily making different sections of the catalog. Not just a flat list of items. In general, the book suggests that you do a careful top-down grouping of your items. In a manner that will seem logical to visitors to the website. It advises to keep the content 'plain and simple'. For most of you, that will be so. Exceptions might arise if what you are selling is specialised and where visitors might expect comprehensive data sheets, say, on the items. Think perhaps of fine chemicals, real estate or cars. Then again, these items tend to be individually expensive, so it may be economic to provide large content. Unsurprisingly, Drupal lets you easily add photos to the catalog. An important selling point, to grab a visitor's attention. It's not all about the webpages that a visitor sees. One strength of Drupal is that it has several payment gateways. Eight in the default installation, and modules for other gateways are also available on the web. The default support includes PayPal, Eurobill and Eway. To a general audience, PayPal is probably the best known. Some gateways are only available in certain countries. Depending on your location, you may choose to sign up for as many of these as make sense, for fitting your expected customer demographics.
