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

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.

Triggers fatal database error.

Have spent all day disabling plugins, deleting previous installs and deleting the old database tables. Disabling custom CSS.

Have performed a fresh WP install, a fresh install of Weaver II Pro theme. Fresh installs of plugins, A fresh install of The Cartpress.

Each time Instant database error at each step

Deleted for good and will rebuild the site with WooCommerce.

The Cartpress community has also been down all day so impossible to search for others with same problem.

works - with some weeknesses

I like the layout and integration in a multisite network, but in the website where the cardpress is activated, the search function of WP finds only the products, no normal pages or articles.
It should be improved to fully use in a multisite network.

This plugin is very helpful for me, and I have successfully installed successfully.
Thank you for all this valuable work just for free only at.

Settings are very easy to store and supports all languages ​​and supports all very advanced payments.
Not too many settings and so the maximum result.

Thank you friend
