If you're a developer looking to use FoxyCart with WordPress, this plugin will save you a lot of time. There are lots of hooks you can use for customization, and a set of template files you can modify for your own purposes. The developer has always been very helpful in answering my questions.
First of all if you are looking to integrate a FoxyCart powered e-commerce solution into WordPress, then FoxyShop is a must!
Keep in mind that FoxyCart itself is a more developer focused product, so I'm not sure either FoxyCart or FoxyShop is great for someone not technical at all.
However, if you are looking for a shopping cart you want to be able to customize a little (or a lot!), then FoxyShop can't be beat! It's super easy to customize, yet it is not super complicated and it's really easy to work with. The only thing I can't believe is that more people aren't using this yet.
Would be great if the UI could be revamped at some point but that's a minor issue, the functionality is all there!
A really useful plugin to integrate FoxyCart into a WordPress install. Out of the box (with some minor configuration), it provides most features any online shop would require.
I was required to create a custom product page template for a client, which meant I had to look into the FoxyCart docs quite a bit, however, the plugin developer was even willing to help me even though this wasn't directly related to his plugin.
We are from the old school of ecommerce (built from scratch) and now love the fast and effective FoxyShop + FoxyCart solution. FoxyShop will probably do just about everything you need for the catalog of products, but David is very responsive to your needs - especially if you help things along with a donation! Must try this.
The main disappointment is that no where in your details and documentation does it state that in order to use your plugin, there would be a monthly AND transaction fee.
Luckily it allowed me to try it for me but the final product looks nothing like what you advertised.
Thanks but no thanks!
I can't rate this plugin highly enough.
If you're looking to setup a wordpress site and then add the functionality of ecommerce or just build a full on ecommerce site with an integrated blog - this is the best solution to your dreams.
Total freedom - totally customisable - bullet proof, smooth, easy and quick checkout process.
David the foxyshop wp plugin developer and the foxycart team are both very responsive to updating the code and adding new features. They tell it as it is and you don't need to become some genius php coder to tweak and design things up the way you want.
Everything else I've looked at to easily build a unique ecommerce site has been blown away by foxyshop and foxycart.
We LOVE developing eCommerce sites with FoxyCart and the FoxyShop plugin. Shop owners love maintaining their products and orders via the WordPress admin and we as developers love that there are endless ways to customize the buying experience. FoxyShop uses custom post types which means you can make products in to almost anything and display them any way you can dream up. Shop owners can edit and create new products as easy as writing a new page or post. David Hollander goes above and beyond to support both the FoxyShop plugin and even some general FoxyCart questions. I would highly recommend using FoxyCart and FoxyShop to develop eCommerce sites. Both keep getting better and better! Thanks David for the excellent plugin and to the FoxyCart team for an excellent platform!
