There are some quarks but all in all it works.
We have a simple site that sells our artwork. We don't keep inventory and we use Paypal (god I hate paypal!)
For our simple needs it works.
This is a very powerful plugin, but it is not always easy to make it work the way you want.
I implemented this on the first WordPress website I made in five or six years, and maybe I could have picked an easier one to start with…
The plugin has some unique features: it's the only one I could find that could be used with regular posts (or those within a custom taxonomy).
It is extremely flexible compared to other plugins I tried.
I can recommend the plugin however to every developer that is a bit more experienced than myself (it took me four days to set it up exactly like I wanted: to long, but that was my own fault).
Unfortunately the old forums are offline since half may 2014: I had some difficulty to find the info I needed, as most searches linked to the deleted forum pages.
Pretty good plugin, great for custom sites, not as powerful as for example WooCommerce but on the other hand it doesn't force you to do anything, and there are no overcomplications.
IMO it is just missing a
1) product options filter (you can add custom options to products and change the price accordingly which is great, but don't have a filter for that)
2) a price range filter (from and to, or a range slider, or even better, both).
3) 2checkout integration would be good, since it is a pretty popular gateway.
The first 2 things I stated I believe are a must for any serious ecommerce plugin, the third one here and there.
All in all pretty good, hopefully it will evolve a bit more in time.
This plugin have a lot of benefits. I'm using it in a live site. I guess that there is a long way to develop more cool features.
I cannot be able to find the "able to use it as catalogue with no sales" feature. I mean, sure I can disable the plugin but I want to keep the pricing, so the thing I want to disable is the shopping cart only.
Another thing I cannot find is a basic option to notify the store admin when someone made an order.
Besides this, a great plugin.
A good plugin, easy to install and configure.

Please enjoy !
If you need more, go to a dedicated "e-commerce" plugin !

Works well. First shop I have added to a website, but works for what my needs are.
