Couldn't get it to work
By , for WP 4.5.2

I installed this plugin, and it created product URLs that go nowhere. Looking at the demo site, I see that the URL is supposed to be

[siteURL]/?ms_song=[song-name]

But the plugin set them as [siteURL]/ms_song/[song-name]

I could not find any way to correct it. So I deleted the plugin and am moving on to some other solution.

Developer: Please do not waste time explaining how to fix it, I'm not giving you a second chance. Just make the damn thing work correctly the first time.

Not ready for prime time, it seems

Not ready for prime time, it seems...

I will be uninstalling immediately, since the very first thing I looked at (Song Uploader) is marked as "The feature is only available in the commercial version of Music Store."

How can one have even a lite version if you cannot upload the music. Two thumbs down, y'all!

No value
By , for WP 4.3.1

Firstly, I purchased the pro version of this plugin. Buyers Remorse.

I agree with the reviewer who was displeased with the inability to incorporate PayPal Sandbox testing. We were resorted to making an actual transaction, which was successful, so we proceeded to go public.

However, when we went live, first sale was a customer stating the download redirect returned an error. I looked at the plugin's sale history, and there was none, yet both parties had received confirmation from PayPal. Upon checking FTP, I discovered the plugin failed to create the download file. I checked the developer's forum, made sure the folder had write permissions, everything was in order.

But the real issue, is I emailed them twice for support, and though they guarantee a reply within 24 hours I have yet to receive anything back.

So I have a purchased plugin that is not doing precisely what it claims to do. Money is being transferred without any delivery of product. Unacceptable. Luckily, I was still able to give the customer a positive experience by providing the file directly...Except that's exactly what I paid the plugin to do.

No Paypal Sandbox mode
By , for WP 4.2.4

The reason for my 1 star review is the fact that there's no Sandbox mode for Paypal. I set it up, it looked good, but in order to test it, I had to put through a live transaction — and, of course, it didn't work. I don't usually write negative reviews; I try to get things working, and if I can't, I uninstall and move on. But this is enough of an annoyance, even if it only cost me 50 cents, to post this. I'm certainly not going to keep spending Paypal fees to get a plugin working for which there is plenty of competition. If sandbox mode ever gets integrated I might try again, otherwise, sorry folks. Every single other shop plugin I tried has this, so why don't you?

No Support
By , for WP 3.8.1

Plugin stopped working after 133 days, emailed and asked for help. Got told they would only help if I paid

Great customer service - it would have taken them 30 seconds to reply to my email. Instead they try and fleece me and I tell a 1000 people how bad they are - GENIUS!

Useless *demo plugin
By , for WP 3.8

Doesn't allow to test the music-store as the name suggest. What use is the lite version if it doesn't allow to create the store to try out?
WP should revise their terms of uploading such useless and time wasting plugins from their repo.

Bah?! This broke my site.
By , for WP 3.6.1

Simply enabling this plugin on my WordPress install, drastically killed the Admin Panel load times and completely broke my Media control; Featured images, Adding images to pages, etc.

I wouldn't have left this feedback if I hadn't mistakenly over-trusted this plugin, leaving me 8 hours behind on a high-profile project.

If anyone is getting heavy site degradation, a crippled Admin Panel, or has lost access to the control of media on their wordpress install, check this plugin first. :(

P.S. In terms of using the *free version. I was too busy freaking out about site degradation and broken media [crippled website] to even DEMO the free version, much less buy it. I did, however, confirm that this plugin was the guilty culprit.
