If you are looking for a plugin to get your store up and running in no time, this is the plugin for you. I had explored other plugins and found those didn't play nicely with my website. This plugin does not conflict with my WP theme(s) and Page Builder module. I found Woo and its java to conflict with my website, breaking several plugins. Go ahead and upgrade to Premium because you'll benefit from their support.
This is a fantastic, simple plugin for selling 1-2 items on a website such as an eBook, tickets to a workshop, T-Shirt or a CD.
You have to make sure NOT to touch the store page at all for the free version to work properly. I made that mistake and Niaz was kind enough to help me.
When my clients need more functionality they will definitely upgrade to his premium plugin.
Thanks for such a useful plugin.
I recently installed the Premium version of this plugin for a client who is selling soup online. The Premium version costs just $30 which I think is a good price, and the client was happy to pay for it.
I wanted the product variations to display the actual price in the dropdown, instead of the price relative to the original product price, and Niaz prompted delivered the new code within hours of me sending him a small payment to make the change. My client and I are very happy with it.
My client's order page with products:
According to the reviews and forum, I was skeptical at first about Niaz's level of service. In fact, at the beginning I had some difficulty getting just one category of products to display using the shortcodes that Niaz sent me. I could only get the full store showing up on my Store page. He seemed reluctant to really tackle the problem, perhaps because he was going on vacation, but he said that my site was really slow and he couldn't get in (I wasn't sure I believed him, as I've been on the same server for 10 years and it's never slow or down), and he said I should check syntax, reinstall the plugin, and failing that reinstall WordPress. All those having failed, he suggested having GoDaddy reinstall WordPress. This dismayed me because I had already double-checked my files and installs. But magically, one day the shortcodes started working and I still have no idea what the issue was. So I cannot blame him, I just got the impression through email that he was a bit dismissive or reluctant to handle the problem at first. But luckily it all worked out in the end.
I will definitely be using this plugin in the future. It's easy to use and "simple" which is exactly what I need!
The plugin works good, its a simple to use plugin and i like simple. I needed some modification and support and Niaz respond almost directly and the modification was fixed within 36 hours
I am very happy with the result.
This is a great plugin but the 'lite' version is limited and you will be strongly encouraged by the author to buy the 'premium' version when you ask for support. In fact, you will NEED the 'premium' version to do anything other than really basic stuff.
The 'premium' version (which, confusingly, has a different name) is inexpensive to purchase and works really well but is missing a few bits of core functionality (like merchant emails for the manual payment gateway, for example) and you will end up paying the author extra to supply the code unless you're pretty handy with PHP and SQL. That said, if you end up paying an extra $50 or so to get it fully functional it's still a reasonable buy.
The author (Niaz) is very friendly and replies promptly to support emails but often with requests for extra payment for code revisions or with slightly confused messages. So, patience is required but you should get there in the end!
Summary: The 'premium' version is a really fantastic, straightforward shopcart with plenty of functionality but you will have to be prepared for a bit of work and/or extra payment when needing modifications.
Awesome plugin and great support... if you dont have the funds this is the one you need to get! They will treat you like you spent thousands of dollars on their cart system even though it is free! You will end up wanting to get the upgrade for the extra features and its so inexpensive anyway. I am using this cart on all my future ecommerce builds no doubt.
