Do yourself a favor and download WooCommerce instead.

Not only is this plugin buggy, but there's nowhere to report a bug. Their forums are all "user supported," so don't count on any help from there. You can, of course, pay $47 for each question (or bug report) that you would like to bring to their attention. I had to raise a PayPal dispute once for this "service," as my problem I asked for help with was ignored - until I filed the dispute.

The documentation is awful. Their "WPEC Consultants" won't bother to return e-mails or acknowledge them, so even if you're willing to pay someone to fix your store, you won't be able to find anyone to do so.

The store I run on this plugin is constantly losing sales because of a buggy shopping cart. My WooCommerce store has never had a problem - and I will be switching the other over to WC asap as this is how I earn my living, and I refuse to keep losing money each month.

Save yourself the aggravation and pass this one up.

Looked good, rendered dashboard useless
By , for WP 3.6

I installed this plugin and it loaded in fine to chunk theme by automatic. When I logged into my dashboard however I got server errors when I clicked on anything. I am using wordpress 3.6. Would love to use the plugin though...

Beware of "premium support"
By , for WP 3.5.2

If you have any trouble with this plugin, don't contact GetShopped for help.

I had a Gold Cart account which they state comes with premium support. They don't say that this only entitles you to a single question, that it will take weeks for them to get back to you, and that you then have to pay USD$47 for every other email you wish to send them.

My "support token" was used up in just trying to get Gold Cart working - and then I had to pay to ask for help after that. Their response to my query is a "it's not our fault" and then you're left hanging.

I've had much friendlier and more helpful emails from free plugins. Will stay well clear of this one in the future.

Couldn't Even Unpack the plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

Upon uploading the zip in the WP Dashboard I get the following message:

"Unpacking the packageā€¦

The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature"

Ottimo e stabile come sempre!

Update crashed entire dashboard. No support.
By ,

Updated WP E COM plugin as dashboard suggested. Entire dashboard went down. Posted in their forums. Post never was approved over more than 24 hour period. Had to reinstall WP and rebuild entire site because of deadline and lack of support response. Used WOO solution instead.

I don't normally leave reviews but....
By , for WP 3.5.2

I don't normally leave reviews but I thought it was only fair after all of the bad reviews that I read. I tried the plugin a couple of weeks ago and after a couple of days I removed it because I couldn't get the shipping to work, it kept doubling the amount of shipping. I then tried a few other shopping cart plugins and found none of them had everything that I wanted and I also found them harder to work with. I decided to give it another try with wp e-commerce as it had everything else that I wanted. After a little searching I found that it was because I had local charges set on my products and it was adding this to the postal rates, duuuh. I'm glad I went back and gave it another go. If you are thinking of using this plugin and you are not sure because of all of the bad reviews I would at least give it a go and make your own mind up like I did

One hellhole of a plugin
By , for WP 3.5.2

shitridden hellhole of a plugin. Never had so much work with something. Translated? Pah. Consistent programming? Pah.

Like MC Hammer would say:
Don't touch this.
