Easy to use, lacks tax capabilities
By , for WP 4.3.1

As far as the plugin goes, it’s simple to setup, easy to use and customizable. You can add a base price for shipping/handling as well as per item and has several other variants which can be configured.

The problem, which was a deal-breaker for me was the way tax works. Tax has to be added via PayPal settings and in turn, tax get’s applied to shipping. The plugin will breakout product price and shipping as separate items but Paypal adds tax to the total amount, rather than just the items purchased. I didn’t feel right about charging customers tax on shipping so I had to abandon it.

Sellers that don’t need accurate taxable settings or those selling digital assets would likely benefit most from the plugin.

Works and Doesn't Work
By , for WP 4.1

Simple to install and configure(though a bit confusing what all the options do at first).

Would give this 5 stars, but having problem with shopping cart.
Set up a page for shopping cart...and all seemed to be working fine.
But if I go back to the product page and add another product, when it directs me to my shopping cart page, it only shows the first item. tried reloading....didn't work, tried deleting the first item, worked, but that ain't gonna cut it.

Also, tried wp rocket clear cache and that worked as well, the other product mysteriously appeared. I don't think my potential customers are going to go to that effort, so that ain't gonna cut it either.

:( thought this would be the perfect addition to my site.
