For an upcoming project, I will need to incorporate commerce capabilities into Drupal for the first time, so I am investigating my options.
Thing is, the new site I'm making will not be a full fledged e-shop with a lot of product listings etc. The requirements is to sell:
- Festival tickets / passes
- Hotel bookings near festival venue
- Festival pass + hotel combos
My question is as follows:
Though it interests me to familiarize my self with Drupal Commerce, would DC be overkill for the above use case? Would I be better off simply using redirects to Paypal? As far as I know, Paypal can redirect back to a landing page in the original site, so that the user experience is not disrupted, right?
Currently there is no requirement for merchandise sales, so I'm thinking a cart would be unnecessary ("add to cart" does not make sense for festival tickets and hotel bookings). I would just need a one step checkout process.
I guess customer tracking and stock management (how many hotel rooms left) could be a motivation to use DC, but I guess the site owner can track orders via their Paypal Control Panel too, correct?
Any input would be most welcome.
Thank you in advance
