Bugs with WP eCommerce Multi-site and no response in regards to support.
By , for WP 4.3

This was posted over a week ago without any response.

"Hi, I have installed "wp ecommerce" on my WordPress mutlisite. My problem is that if I go to my main domain and select "settings/store" the general tab information appears correctly, but all other sub-domains will not display any dropdown under the general tab.
Is there a fix for this as I am only using the "wp ecommerce" on one of my subdomains."

Not well supported! I suggest looking at more reliable plugins that offer a working eCommerce environment for Multi-site needs.

Poor support. Still Waiting
By , for WP 4.2.1

I recently updated a client's website to a new theme, Blanco, that is well supported and uses WP eCommerce. However, when I finished setting up the new theme, there was a bug in my checkout process that would not allow customers to complete their purchase. I talked to Blanco's authors and they said since the same bug persists when the WP default theme was activated, it was a problem with WP eCommerce.

I have sent several emails to WP eCommerce and still have yet to hear back. It's been a few weeks and my client is loosing money everyday. This is my last resort or I'm switching platforms.

DOES NOT WORK

Online support directs you to paid support. Shipping charges won't apply and shipping details won't forward to PayPal.

Absolutely the worst plugin EVER.
By , for WP 4.0

Nothing but frustration. UPS shipping does NOT work no matter what we try when we setup this plugin. Nit picky little problems all over the place.. documentation for setting up shipping is basic and doesn't address the fact that UPS doesn't work.

I torched 3 weeks of my life to this plugin, trying to get a basic ecommerce website up. I even paid for the upgrade on this plugin.. junk junk junk..

Do yourself a favor and read the reviews on this plugin.. I chose not to believe them at first and the end result was nothing but irritation and no results.

Do yourself a bigger favor and pay a little more to use woocommerce.. it took me 15 minutes to get the UPS side setup on woocommerce. It worked 1st TRY.

Still don't believe it.. go ahead try it.. you'll be wishing later..

There's better e-commerce solutions

Works. But if you need to do a lot of customization to it, you might have to pay for other views/options so that it isn't in a table layout - or modify the template to make it 'table-less'. I don't know for sure if the other 'views' are table-less or not though.

NEW ADDITION:
With the newest version and the newest version of WordPress it DOES NOT WORK. If you look at the support forums, it's littered with people crying about all kinds of things not working (including me).

Clumsy Code, Unqualified Company with dishonest marketing
By , for WP 3.9.1

This plugin is like a car that looks nice on the outside, but is glued together with popsicle sticks on the inside.

You have to drive it EXTREMELY carefully in a straight line on a smooth road at 5km/h. Even then it will fall apart every 10 minutes. You'll splash on some more glue to keep it together for another 5 minutes, but that glue just makes it heavier

You get what you pay for with this plugin. Be very prepared to spend a 50 hours ironing out the bugs and conflicts as well as intense fear everytime you update wordpress or any other plugin.

Stay away.

Garbage
By , for WP 3.9

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.

its a nogo

doesn't work, full of bugs, use woocommerce instead.
