Since March I've been having a good try with the Shopp plugin. It simply isn't working out. With their recent upgrade it doesn't function at all and I'm heartsick over it. Lots of lost time and effort not to mention money in the purchase of the plugin.
I really want to keep my store and blog connected as one since the blog is much easier to manage in SEO efforts - so much more versatile for the non-programmer.
Really all I'm hoping to accomplish is having the blog and the store on the same domain, ideally using WordPress for the blog. I really would like to have a cart option that allows product import from spreadsheet and quite a few other bells and whistles aimed at speeding things up.
Tons of shopping carts out there, I'm looking for some recommendations from experience. I have virtually no money to invest in this...looking to the sale of product to support what I spend on it which was working out until I installed Shopp (moved from Prostores site).
Any suggestions? I host with Hostgator and am happy there. Would it be possible to install a website and put wordpress on a subdomain of the site? I only have a fleeting understanding of this kind of setup.
