A waste of time
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.

There are better options

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.

Not worth the time
By , for WP 3.9.1

This was not worth it. Filled with bugs because I think they want you to PAY for the premium support

Don't was your time - Use WooCommerce instead
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.

Best plugin and support
By , for WP 3.9.1

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

Great plugin for simple e-commerce tasks
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.

Never had an update that didn't break something
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.

Very heavy, bad multilanguage support, bad docs
By , for WP 3.9

Product has so many options to setup, but there is NO documentation to understant what functions do.
Very HEAVY code.
Need to translate js scripts all the time after update!!!
Very hard to add filtering and sorting (required PRO level in wp code)

problem fixed
By , for WP 3.9

Thanks to Justin for fixing my issues with an update that seamed to of wiped off customer delivery info and address. The problem is resolved and customers can now place an order. Thanks again
