    Hi Susan, We are currently use WordPress for our website with a plugin called WooCommerce for our Farm Store. It’s not the most intuitive system if you haven’t built website before — it’s definitely not a drag and drop type of system. Since I have a little bit of experience with it, we find it easiest to use since we don’t have to pay for it as a separate service. Also since we have meat items that are variable prices due to weight, we don’t use the parts for collecting payment. That’s how it works well as a pre-ordering type system — everything is set as a Cash on Delivery type of payment as people order then once we pull orders we send invoices via Square. Maybe this helps? 🙂
