Support » Plugin: WP eCommerce » dont waste your time

  • This plugin has more 1 stars than any other, should be a clue. I didn’t listen to that clue or all the reviews of this ecommerce being buggy. It worked pretty good until 3.8.9 released. Immediately broke my 3 sites. They did a quick fix on that one though. Later to find out shipping was broke from the update. Lost the ability to enter any numbers in the shipping and weights section of product edit, both new and previous products. This might even be fixed by now but after posting on their “support” forum the only replies I had were my own with additional information for finding a fix. I waited a week for nothing and was losing sales. Finally I switched to a different ecommerce and now that I’ve gotten past the learning curve I have figured out that the one I’m using now is actually better anyway. So now I have about 200 items to relist. Its gonna be a long weekend.

  • What did you settle on?

    woocommerce. I now have most of my store set back up and really like it. the best advice i can give is try many of them.

    My ratings from personal testing, mind you this is for the completely free versions only

    1st Woocommerce – my favorite of the bunch, good variations, good shipping with weight/region addon

    2nd Eshop. My 2nd choice, very nice but shipping is awful. Product pages are made from new pages or posts (I personally didn’t like this but could be good for others)

    3rd Ready! ecommerce. I couldn’t set different prices for variables, checkout is fugly.

    the rest i tried in no particular order:
    Marketpress – decent shipping, offers only paypal express
    Marketplace – 1 I really didn’t like this personally, but might be good
    WP Store Cart – limited variations, terrible shipping options, pretty

    The Cart Press – shipping blows, no variables
    Jigoshop – no pricing on variables, variable settings confusing but looks good.
    wp online store (oscommerce) – shipping sucks, doesn’t actually integrate that well with wordpress.
