Good job!!

Excellent plug-in, many options and highly configurable
By , for WP 4.4.2

I have been looking for a shop-like WordPress plug-in to start a new project on Internet. I have tested a lot but just this one fits our necessities. Is quite powerful, well programmed, many options, secure. You can define almost every aspect of a shop with the advantage it is very configurable and easily customizable.
On the other hand, the support is outstanding. The author is always willing to help you out with any problem or bug you can find and solve it in a blink of an eye.

Every single plug-in, programs and other pieces of software are not bug-free. This is not an exception but the most important thing is that it is in constant development and improvement.


Poorly developed

Don't use this plugin. It will break. You will lose sales.

TCP is an absolute nightmare. Every update something is wrong and it takes many days to get an answer to get support for payment extensions.

I've used this on three different websites, all of which are currently with problems (discounts, variations, taxes and notification issues!!)

No support!

Bye bye

A big waste of time
By , for WP 4.2.4

Taxes, payment notifications and attributes/variations doesn´t work.
Very bad support, nobody seem to understand some problems.

I have sent several emails to thecartpress site and still have yet to hear back. It's been a few weeks and my client was loosing money everyday.

Free? Now I have to refund one client and another ones rebuild using Woocommerce.

Payment setting

Hi developers can you please let me know how to set up Pay-pal payment, Thank-you

Used to work fine, now struggles.

This cart seems like it works okay, but for some reason whenever anyone tries to make a purchase of my downloadable goods. The Item goes to pending then cancels but the payment comes through paypal correctly. Unfortunately the person isn't then able to download the item as it never complete leaving me to email it manually.

It used to work perfectly which is most annoying. I looked on forums and found someone else experiencing the same problem that was never resolved so they installed another cart and had more success. A little worried though that I will have to completely rebuild my website as I have used one of the cartpress themes.

Some help would be really appreciated!

Very powerful
By , for WP 4.2.2

Although you need time to discover how this plugin works if you want to use it to the full extent of its possibilities, once you have done so it’s really powerful and you can adapt it to your needs.
Lots of functionalities are available out of the box, though.

Could be great, but too many problems
By , for WP 4.1

The plugin, when you get it working, is actually fantastic. It's extremely flexible and offers a lot of options. It has some major problems though:

  1. It's not very easy to use. It's vast and unwieldily. I'm quite technically minded, but I struggled to get this working how I wanted it.
  2. Poor documentation. Not enough documentation and the documentation that exists isn't all that helpful or easy to get your head around.
  3. Confusing working / descriptions. I'm aware that the developer isn't a native English speaker. He really needs to get someone to work on the wording within the plugin. It's not at all clear what some things are, or what they do.

I'm having a number of problems with CartPress now and I'm regretting using it. I've discovered that it has broken some Jetpack functionality, it's duplicating, or even triplicating some orders, and some functions of the plugin itself are non-functional.
