seems to be a very advanced ecommerce plugin that packages everything you'd ever need to run an online store. i really appreciate the ease of use to actually administer the store. setting up products and updating prices was a breeze. looking forward to the future of vendorfuel.

Using this shopping cart plugin as an alternative to WooCommerce on a client's website, so far so good. It's awesome that it has drop ship capabilities built right in and I love that it integrates natively with Qualpay. Will definitely be using this cart on some other projects in the future.
