I was looking for a simple to use shopping cart plugin for an already existing WordPress site. I saw a few posts that suggested that eShop might be the best bet to work with any theme. I must say that I was actually surprised at how easy it was to set up and configure!
You have to use a shortcode for the main shopping page, there are lots of options and they can be found at: http://quirm.net/wiki/eshop/setting-up-using-eshop/shortcodes/ but then it's just going through the settings (there are quite a few, but it's all pretty self explanitory) and changing any styling. I should say, copy the stylesheet wp-content/uploads/eshop_files/eshop.css to your theme folder, or upload your own eshop.css if you want to do this.
Love this plugin and the devs are amazing when you consider it's offered for free. I've read a few reviews complaining about support but Rich and Esmi have been nothing but helpful when I've had a problem. The problem is people expect everything for nothing and treat free support as if it's something they're entitled to, yet hardly anyone donates for this kind of thing. Devs need to be supported if you want continued help!
If you want to enable your website to sell physical or downloadable goods, it's one of the best of its kind.
Perfect for what I need and great support too.
i really apologize for what happened...thanks for getting back to me on this...i have changed the ratings for it as 5 star...regards
The eShop plugin is great! It works and the support is very good. The only thing that I have found to be missing is allowing other users who are non-admins to administrate the eShop orders. The way it is setup works perfectly for a one man operation, but if you have other users who you want to manage orders within eShop but not be a wordpress administrator, then you will have to right some custom code hacks which will not be supported by eShop developers for obvious reasons. I cannot complain though. eShop is a great eCommerce system and gave me a base to which make develope my custom needs. If you need user access settings start by reading this forum: http://quirm.net/forum/topic.php?id=4002
I have used this plugin for my small scale business to sell EBOOKS through online. Though this plugin is having only PAYPAL, CASH, BANK which are supported by eSHOP team & other payment gateway's which are not supported any more, I have just used this plugin in my ELEGANT BOUTIQUE theme which is very awesome to run everything smoothly.
Recently, I have created an Addon for this plugin with a new merchant gateway. And that plugin is also working perfectly along with all other merchant gateways. Really awesome plugin.
This is a good plugin for the beginners like me. It contains various modes of shipping, calculation and a very powerful support system. You can see most of the comments are answered.
Thank you for the authors.
This plugin does what I need. Sure there are a few things that could be better, but for free this plugin does exactly what I need better than any other!
