Works Well, Easy to use
By , for WP 4.3.1

As a first time web page builder with some board IT knowledge, I found the plugin really easy to use and configure for my site. Support was helpful and prompt. I would recommend to others.

The Gold Cart Plugin provides the function we needed

Not only that, the support was very quick when I had trouble with an upgrade. (The API key changed and old keys don't work with the new version.)

Really great and understanding support team. They got back to me in a timely manner and helped with big issue we had. They went totally above and beyond what you’d expect!!! Thanks!!!

We have been using wpsc for 6 months now and it really is great. there are some limitations in the free version but there are so many advantages. there are a couple of minor bugs but never anything major. have a gander at our webstore ecoo.com.au and u will see the power of wpecommerce. built entirely for free (with a lot of customising!!) :)

Can not unzip The Plugin WP eCommerce(version 3.11.0)

Don't do it ! Keep Searching !

The Gold Cart is expensive and doesn't really work - I bought it to get the grid view and it doesn't really work. There is support - but you can only ask 1 question and then you have to pay a high price to ask another question... My advise : get another product - there are free plugins that can do a better job. Keep Searching !

Best Shopping Cart Solution for WordPress
By , for WP 4.3.1

I LOVE WP eCommerce and have been using it for years. The Gold Cart add on is worth the money.

A great open-source community that I've proudly contributed to and will continue to do so.


Good set of features but very inefficient
By , for WP 4.3.1

After investigating a performance issue on one of the sites I manage, I narrowed the problem (1.8-2.0s script time per request, not including download time) to this plugin.

Having it active on your site introduces around 320 extra database queries, per page load, regardless of whether the requested page is even a shop page. A small increase in traffic was enough for this site to chew up alot of resources - disabling this plugin brought the avg queries per page down to 50, and an 80ms script time.

Aside from this issue it's not a bad ecommerce plugin but as the performance is such a big problem, I was forced to drop it. By comparison, woocommerce only added 50-80 queries per page and kept page load speed down so I swapped it out for that.

Much work needs done for efficiency here.

Best Customer Service Experience Possible
By , for WP 4.3.1

After a quick moment of panic that I purchased something that was not going to do the job I wanted... on a Sunday morning... within minutes I had an answer from a team member with a reassurance that everything was good and I had nothing to worry about!

I can't imagine this service could be 24/7 like this, but wow I can't be more impressed by the level of service provided on top of a good platform for ecommerce website owners! After this experience, I will definitely be recommending them, as well as using them in the future.

I should mention, I have been using the wp ecommerce platform for digital downloads for a few months very successfully, I was just installing a membership/subscription premium extension to add to the site!

Great support and easy to use plugin

Been using Gold Cart for a while without a hitch, but when I did have a problem the support was excellent. Got the shop back up and running in no time.
