Not only does this plug-in bloat your website database, it's impossible to remove once you realize how unnecessarily bloated this plug-in really is.
If that's not enough to turn you off - it has a unique 'ruin my weekend' feature that creates thousands of anonymous users that you'll spend the better part of free time trying to remove.
Technical support is amazing too - lots of 'well, other crappy plug-ins work this way too' responses so you can rest assure you're getting a garbage product.
doesn't work, full of bugs, use woocommerce instead.
The documentation is completely obsolete. In a topic in the forum, the author explicitely say writing a documentation up to date is at the bottom of the list. That's ...sincere !
Just lost three days of work.
Broke my site, many functions not working now, I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
It doesn't help that when I put one of my smaller problems onto the support that wasn't answered either.
This was not worth it. Filled with bugs because I think they want you to PAY for the premium support
Pretty poor quality in my opinion. Just overall lacking on robustness. Wasted $50 on the braintree plugin that didn't even work (no credit card form validations?) Also was unable to sell a simple free product ($0).
Switched to woo-commerce and immediately found it to be way better. Don't waste your time.
We have used this plugin for 2 years along with the Gold Cart and it was easy to setup plus user friendly. Support has been there to fix any issues that arise (only 2) quickly and check back to make sure everything is working fine. I have no problem paying for support time. I get paid for my time from clients, so should Mihai!
Thank you Mihai.........you always make my job easier.
Has almost single handedly killed my business as people cannot checkout now
Last year I set up a website for a non-profit organization. One of the requirements for the new website software was for everything to be able to be accomplished with just configuration -- no programming.
After evaluating a couple of CMSs I set up WordPress. I was able to download WP e-Commerce, install, configure and make a payment to myself with PayPal in less than an hour.
Our website just went through our busy time of year without any problems with the store or the PayPal interface.
Last week I was alerted to a problem with products in a certain category. The WP e-Commerce people got back to me quickly, sent my trouble ticket on to WP Support (I believe) and they fixed my configuration error. My store was back up running within 24 hours of my being notified that there was a problem.
WP e-Commerce is a good choice for anyone wanting a simple store on the WordPress site.
Don't use this plugin. It will break. You will lose sales.
As a developer, WPEC is an absolute nightmare. Getting it to work takes a lot of effort, and every update changes the core of the website substantially. Good lucky trying to customize any of those template files!
I've used this on three different websites, all of which are currently outdated because it's too much of a hassle to update.
What broke this time? You can't add products to the cart. Not even with other plugins disabled and using a stock theme. It's so terrible. And look at all those other 1-star ratings.
