    Hi folks,

    I'm sure this has been asked loads of times before, but I'm a complete noob to this so thought I'd ask the question and start from scratch.

    Can anyone recommend the best plugin to use?

    I have a payment gateway I can link up the system too. I'd just like to know the most reliable but simple to use.

    I'd like it to include the following:

    1. Customizable css/ theme
    2. Shipping/ postage cost calculator
    3. Simple to use backend so my client can login and manage it himself.
    4. multiple variation options for products and categories, dimentions, length, number of items etc

    Wp-ecommerce seems popular but hasn't got very good reviews by the look of it.

    Can anyone advise?

  2. Not for free. But the main plugin I use for e-commerce is wp-estore.

    I think it's something like fifty bucks. But it has all the options you are requesting.

    Here is their demo site:

    Thanks for the replies.

    I'm using these guys:


  5. FYI:

    I don't believe the plugin I mentioned will support that gateway.

    Thanks for the replies folks.

    In that case - would it have to be a hand coded custom built solution?

    thanks again

    That would be one major custom build. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/eshop/ should have the hooks you need to build an add-on plugin for your gateway (something we're actively encouraging as opposed to try and build/support them all ourselves). Based on your description, it might provide the bulk of what you need.
