Shopping cart or memebership with PayPal subscription (2 posts)

    Hello, I am need of some direction as to go about setting up either a shopping cart or membership with WordPress.

    This is the idea:

    Home page: Viewer will click either a "Get Started" button or "Give As a Gift" button.

    The buttons will take the viewer to a page that will illustrate "Choose A Size" Small, Medium, or Large with buttons.

    Next it will take the viewer to a page that will illustrate "Choose A Plan" 1 Month, 3 Month, 6 Month with buttons.

    Then it will go to a Summary Page of the choices picked above with a form to fill out for Name, Shipping Address, Billing Information. Once filled out the viewer will click a PayPal button to finish the transaction with PayPal.

    I have tried to find a shopping cart solution that would work with the above and haven't seen anything. Any advice or suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

    Take a look at the WordPress plugin repository and search for membership plugins. Although many of these are aimed at creating online memberships, you can potentially extend these to include monthly billing for actual product and not just for online access.

    There are also commercial plugins (i.e. paid and/or not supported by WordPress.org) like iThemes Exchange with membership add-ons which might also work.

    I don't know if anything will fit the exact flow you outlined above but if you think of it at a higher level (customers order a product with a re-occurring subscription cost) then I think you'll find something that will work.
