Just what I needed
By , for WP 4.0

This is a great bookstore plugin! I use it on both of my WordPress websites and I'm really happy with it. It was easy to install and set up and the tech support is great! They respond quickly and address any questions or issues thoroughly.The authors of the plugin (AuthorMedia) provide a lot of free information and helpful resources on their website for authors and speakers, in addition to what's available in the plugin itself.I actually contributed to the development of the plugin through the Kickstarter campaign and I was nervous about it -- I'd never participated in anything like this before. But they delivered what they promised, and with each update, they keep delivering. I haven't been disappointed.

Very nice for layout and function

This plugin works great and the developers keep adding new features. Along with the premium add-ons, this will make any author's site look and function very professionally.

If this plugin actually was free I might give it a higher rating, but since, in all actuality, you need to pay to really use it, I have to give it the lowest rating I can.

People, you want me to pay for your plugin, have the honesty to tell me I need to pay for your plugin.

Absolutely what we needed to build a fully functional book shop
By , for WP 4.0

This is an awesome plugin. Having tried several others when setting up our bookshop, this plugin is by far the best. It is so easy to use and has all the options we needed all in one place.

We have gone with the Pro version so we can use General Buy buttons and the one thing that would be really wonderful is if we could put images on our General Buy Buttons rather than text so they look exactly like the other buttons.

More ability to customise the normal buttons from the plugin would be good as well, but that's just a would like, we got round it by adding our own image folder and changing the size of the buttons in an override css.

Excellent features and lots of potential :)

Being an Author I was trying to do something with my site this plugin did a great job for me thank you for that extra support words you have written there as a reply to ( mariamar, July 17, 2014 ) in which you ahve explained the multiple purpose uses; WOW! that was a Boon my dear Friend Thomas (My Authoring Name is R'Ocean Thomas)Since being an IT Professional for 20 years; so now I can add my field items to as products in different categories too. Main thing is that I can use my site in a better way that is the greatest fact. Till now I was just keeping a paid site with no actual purpose but now I do have a purpose thanks to you :) Even our Non-Profitable Organization site will have a life; when my sites starts as a main one to support. Thank you :)

Stellar features and customer service
By , for WP 3.9.1

I am an author and I wanted to place a bookstore in my site, so when I saw the MyBookTable plugin I sang Hallelujah! It was so easy to do and displayed the books so well, that I got addicted...yes, I confess I got greedy... very greedy. Now I wanted to place ALL my products and services in the plugin. And I have lots of them, and in all different types: audios, courses, consultations, programs. This was, as Thomas Umstattd (customer service) told me, an "extreme" use. He replied to my request in a matter of hours and gave me a walk-through on how I could do this. I LOOVE creative people! I tried what he said and now I have not just books, the entire store in MyBooktable settings. It looks great, is easy and fast to do and to update and gives consistency to my store display. If you are thinking of getting this plugin I highly recommend it. I have my books, audios, consultations and programs all displayed beautifully and effectively using this plugin, and the customer service is stellar.

Great widget
By , for WP 3.8

I wish that the side bar widget was centered and gave me more options for title and description, but otherwise, it is a great plugin, particularly if you run a site where you promote your contributors. They use affiliate links, but it's a small price to pay for a great plugin.

Nice but they use their own amazon affiliate code
By , for WP 3.8

This is a very nice plugin and easy to use.

They use their own Amazon affiliate code in the URL when the button is clicked so when someone buys a book I guess they get a small commission from Amazon?

If so, well it's a free plugin so I assume this is how they make it pay. Seems like a fair trade.
