    While I respect your opinion, I disagree with your serious allegations of fraud (bait and switch) which I view to be a potentially libelous accusation on your behalf. I’ve worked hard for the last two years to provide a full featured ecommerce suite that works with PayPal out of the box, and never have we claimed to give away Authorize.NET integration. I don’t know how much clearer we need to be:

    The open source version of wpStoreCart allows you to accept payments through PayPal, or through your own manual process (like check/money orders, etc.) If you need more payment options than upgrade to wpStoreCart PRO.

    In the feature bulletin points from it says:

    PayPal payments (Authorize.NET, 2CheckOut, Liberty Reserve, Quickbooks, Skrill/Moneybookers also available)

    We have never advertised Authorize.NET integration as a free aspect of wpStoreCart. Never, not once. If we had, that would qualify as the “bait” aspect of a bait and switch fraud. However, it is pertinent to inform others of the additional payment gateways we do offer. Simply mentioning that they are available is not saying they are free (duh) it literally just mentions the fact that they are, quote: “also available”

    Haters are going to hate. I’ve spent 2 years of full time work making pennies and delivery a top notch ecommerce solution. What do I get in return? Certainly very little money, and a lot of knit picking and angry people who apparently can’t appreciate the 2 years of open source code I’ve slaved away to produce. It’s people like you that make me want to pull the plug on this whole operation. Luckily, that’s not going to happen. I’m going to ignore the haters, focus on improving my software, and continue to give back to the open source community. In fact, Authorize.NET SIM will be coming to the open source version of wpStoreCart as soon as Authorize.NET AIM is fully finished. Regardless, Stonenote, please don’t use my plugin.


    Good for you. Some people just don’t get it ….

    And for those complaining on my question thread on the official forum …. the reason support is (sometimes) lacking is because the developer is working on it! I mean, hell! You fix the same problem for people on the forums and spend all day responding … or you develop the fix and it’s never a problem again …

    Appreciate the software even though I haven’t fully integrated the add to cart button to my likings yet. The thread is on the official forum. I believe WPStoreCart has the most potential of any WP E-Commerce platform out there right now.

    I do get it. It isn’t fraud and libelous it just isn’t plain and clear and you need to be. I too work hard and I am not a person being vindictictive or picky but you took up my time only to find these things out later. But when you say it works with paypal and, both in the same sentence it IMPLIES. It is the implication that is faulty. Just as you stated…”PayPal payments (Authorize.NET, 2CheckOut, Liberty Reserve, Quickbooks, Skrill/Moneybookers also available)” It would be better to clarify like free with paypal others like are fee based would make more sense. People want to know up front what they get and don’t get. I’m not a hater but you also went off. When I have to read download and then find out it isn’t clear, then I take offense not at having to pay but not being told up front. That is all.
