    I have been using it for years. It is just most straightforward clever zen experience there is. Bastian the creator used to be designer and it shows in all the decisions. It is not overengineered. It's transparent - most importantly to me it is very clear to understand what is going on. It is especially fast if you are doing custom design all the way. I run my life on Kirby.

    From my portfolio and selling my fonts

    to this map type of thing

    or like this i did for friends

    Hell i even use kirby for my internal invoicing. You can just throw at it anything and it will hold up.

    I have tried all the Wordpreses, Drupals, Bolts, Crafts, Statamics of the world and everything is just a littlebit more hurdles.

    Add to that fact that it has great support and it cost HALF of what most competition costs..

    It feels like its some secret i don't know why more people are not using it.

      Nice examples, especially your own shop. I've just glanced over the Kirby docs, but presumably you could hook up or code a custom cart and checkout system to an virtual Kirby endpoint? Presumably now the /buy page is still Kirby and then just integrates with that 3rd party payment service?

        There are many ways to solve this. You could create your own cart and order system with Kirby, but that would require quite some custom dev work. There are services like Snipcart that make this a lot easier though. For our own license shop, we use Paddle.
