UPDATE: I bought the Gold Cart and FedEx Plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

I BOUGHT the Gold Cart and FedEx Plugin and have both installed at nationalhomefloors.com. The cart works, but the FedEx module didn't calculate shipping. I had opened several community forum topics, only to have them marked as spam, and had requested Premium one on one support using the API key for the Gold Cart I purchased. I have also used the CONTACT FORM at ecsquest.net which is where getshopped.org said the FedEx module is developed/supported. I even offered to pay more money either to getshopped.org or to Greg at ecsquest.net to fix the problem. This sent on for over a month with no reply from either site. I finally got in touch with Justin Sainton, one of the consultants recommended on getshopped.org. He replied to my request within five minutes and completely fixed my problem. This was once a one-star review, but I have since upgraded it to a four-star, since both plugins work great and Justin was awesome. I'm holding one star back because I think getshopped.org should not sell the FedEx plugin on their site until it is completely compatible with the newest version of WPEC.

Simple and Affordable
By , for WP 3.5.1

I've come down a long and hard road of trying to make WPEC work with several of the blog themes available at WP.org with only minimal success enjoyed until the next upgrade of WPEC. While I have seen excellent implementations of WPEC, none were in blog themes. My results with the 2012 theme were awful, and in all fairness to WPEC developers, this probably wasn't their fault. My conclusion is if anyone wants to run this, they should consider purchasing a theme made to run it.

Now, about support - it doesn't appear to exist. So if you think you will get all straightened out by purchasing Gold-Cart, you are wrong. If you want to give them 40 bucks, do it for the sake of supporting independent software authors. For me there weren't any features in it worth paying for, but I did anyway.

WPEC is fairly simple to use, and fairly flexible. I found the included shipping options to be rather lackluster but adequate with an additional plugin.

Don't expect you will set up an e-commerce site for nothing. It is likely you will have to buy some functionality not included unless you know how to make it, but WPEC extensions tend to be affordable.

It Isn't Well Documented; Standalone Core Has Almost Zero Support; But...
By , for WP 3.4.2

...if you buy the gold-cart plugin and ever need to use a "premium" support token, their customer service team really works their but off to get your installation working correctly. It's just unfortunate that their free forum is not staffed well enough to answer simple questions regarding their core plugin.

bugfix came very fast
By , for WP 3.4.2

See title - I'm not able to edit products on page 2 to n becaue when I click on next page in backend it shows me all product of the first page again.
Please fix this asap!
Two stars because version 3.8.9 fixed some bug nevertheless.

Edit: This was a fast bugfix. Seems to be OK now.
