Native eCommerce integration & interaction with WordPress. Flexibility & Scalability.
This is an ambitious effort and has some promising features, which is what attracted me to it. Sadly, there are so many bugs and glitches that I am likely going to try to uninstall it. (I wish I hadn't bought an add-on before I knew how difficult this was going to be.) The check-out section has given me endless grief. Digital downloads aren't functional (gave up on it and downloaded Easy Digital Downloads plugin). Product pages in the catalog sometimes show duplicate content that remains even after you edit the product. I could go on, but you get the point. This plugin (actually, a suite of plugins) is a litany of unintended consequences. The developers are evidently non-English speakers with the result they sometimes don't seem to understand support questions or give answers that are so imprecise that they aren't helpful. Some documentation is available (finally) but it is incomplete. The support community is difficult to navigate and did not have an operational search function. I spent an hour scrolling page by page to look for discussion on an issue only to see the issue come up several times without satisfactory resolution. I really wish the team well--this could be a game changing ecommerce system---but I can't devote any more hours to sorting things out.
HAs bugs, from text translations being weird/wrong for english, to things just not working right and to top that off, their forums for trying to get help on http://community.thecartpress.com/ are about the worst setup forums I have ever seen, they are so hard to use it is like they are trying to make them not work right. I used to recommend this plugin, never again. It is a mediocre plugin, only use it if you really need a cart badly, but pretty terrible overall.
Functionality is there, but it's not a quick-and-easy setup, and there's little explanation inline for all the options. Overall, I was hoping this would be a more user-friendly experience.
