You can place a the Cart button anywhere on your site where you want to sell something. Your customers can use their PayPal account to pay for your products or services or they can pay by Debit or Credit Card.

Reviews

Not as Described | No Support

The Pro or paid version of the plugin does not function as described. There is no way to add coupon codes or taxes as stated in the advertisement for the paid version. Tried to contact the seller or programmer repeatedly and he will not reply. There is no support for this plugin and it is not functioning. With no reply from programmer and the Plugin misrepresented this is a definite bad situation. I am out money and more than that a ton of time…

Broke the website

UPDATE:
People at the hosting company are still trying to figure out what caused the breakdown. I’m not 100% sure if the plugin is the reason to cause the problem. It broke down as soon as I updated the plugin but now I’m learning during the same time there was some server issues… What a luck.
They are currently looking for other possible causes to the problem.

INITIAL REVIEW:
I updated the wordpress to 4.6.1

Then I updated this plugin. The whole website is gone. It went blank. I didn’t do a bulk updates. It was just this plugin when I did the update.

People at the hosting company is working on the issue for over 3 hours. This plugin seems like corrupted my whole wordpress. It doesn’t look normal. People at my hosting service tried to find the old version of this plugin and replaced it.

I don’t know if they were able to find the old version or not. They called me and said it’s best to remove the whole website from the server and put the backup back. And then do the wordpress update and find a replacement paypal shopping cart plugin if this one doesn’t work.

I rely on my website for my income so it’s a lot of pressure on me right now.

I hope there will be a solution. Now I’m worried, when they put my website back if the PayPal payment will work at all. I hope I won’t need to hire another website programmer again.

Two thumbs up!

This app made it so much easier for me to set up my site! I love that my prospective clients are able to use the “View Cart” feature. With my site, I’m happy with the free version. On another site I’m helping develop though, we’ll be getting the pro version closer to the launch date.
Thank you!

Does Not Work As Advertised (PRO)

While the plugin supplies an easy way to add Paypal buttons to your website and gives you an easier way to access the Paypal cart – it does not work as advertised.

The PRO version of this software does not pass product weight into the Paypal cart, making shipping by weight useless (and you would argue the only reason to get the PRO version of the Plugin is for that feature).

With no support offered in the out-of-date documentation, I removed the plugin and requested a refund. While the plugin owner was quick to ask why I choose a refund (in less than 3 hours) – I am still waiting for the refund to be issued (48 hours as of typing this)

This plugin does not work as advertised. I don’t recommend this Plugin as an eCommerce solution.

Easy To Use

Easy, simple to use plugin allowing the addition of an ‘add to cart’ button on site. Had no issues setting it up. Very happy so far!
