An accessible Shopping Cart plugin.
The eShop plugin is great! It works and the support is very good. The only thing that I have found to be missing is allowing other users who are non-admins to administrate the eShop orders. The way it is setup works perfectly for a one man operation, but if you have other users who you want to manage orders within eShop but not be a wordpress administrator, then you will have to right some custom code hacks which will not be supported by eShop developers for obvious reasons. I cannot complain though. eShop is a great eCommerce system and gave me a base to which make develope my custom needs. If you need user access settings start by reading this forum: http://quirm.net/forum/topic.php?id=4002
All looked very well when I started using the plugin. But when I wanted to expand functionality I ran into a brick wall. The source is poorly written, inconsistent spaghetti code which makes it very hard to build upon without having to hack into the plugin source itself.
This plugin have a lot of benefits. I'm using it in a live site. I guess that there is a long way to develop more cool features.
I cannot be able to find the "able to use it as catalogue with no sales" feature. I mean, sure I can disable the plugin but I want to keep the pricing, so the thing I want to disable is the shopping cart only.
Another thing I cannot find is a basic option to notify the store admin when someone made an order.
Besides this, a great plugin.
I created several shops using this plugin, thank's to the team.
It does the job but...
Some PHP problems encountered with cloud servers. Some limitations in multilingual management, template customizing, shipping methods.
Good points : Ogone payment available, For PHP developers, this solution is not so hard to hook.
I have used this plugin for my small scale business to sell EBOOKS through online. Though this plugin is having only PAYPAL, CASH, BANK which are supported by eSHOP team & other payment gateway's which are not supported any more, I have just used this plugin in my ELEGANT BOUTIQUE theme which is very awesome to run everything smoothly.
Recently, I have created an Addon for this plugin with a new merchant gateway. And that plugin is also working perfectly along with all other merchant gateways. Really awesome plugin.
Very confusing to get it working properly with paypal. The way shipping zones setup is non-sense.
This is a good plugin for the beginners like me. It contains various modes of shipping, calculation and a very powerful support system. You can see most of the comments are answered.
Thank you for the authors.
This plugin does what I need. Sure there are a few things that could be better, but for free this plugin does exactly what I need better than any other!
Digital downloads don't work.
Documentation is poor.
Support is more interested in arguing with users, closing topics and marking them resolved than actually acknowledging an issue.
