A new face for online shopping!
We are pleased to announce DropShop 2.0, the next generation of online shopping for the masses (and by masses we mean WordPress users). DropShop is a Web 2.0 friendly shopping cart solution for people that think style matters.
We've also added a new Sliding Cart option in the presentation settings for all users. Sliding Cart is a new addition to WP e-Commerce! You can see an example of it working in the blogshop.

People asked us to modify the GridView module so that is works more like http://www.imagecubes.com, this has been done.
If you have purchased GridView and you would like the update then please email me your PayPal GridView purchase receipt and I will email you the new files.
