There's a reason why it has so many 1 star reviews.
By , for WP 3.4.2

The team working on it are a bit over their heads. Rather than doing a few things really well they tried doing everything and it all ends up being mediocre.

The problem is consistency.

I wish them luck, maybe in 5 years this plugin is going to be amazing. For now I'm just giving up. I'm tired of searching through templates. I'm just tired of all the half-done wordpress ecommerce plugins. I went back to selling on ebay. Yeah I'm losing $2.48 on each sale from fees. But at least I can sell something without worry.

I'm not going to go into more detail, I've wasted enough time. Look at the 1 star reviews and decide for yourself.

Poor support, bug fixes break other functions

I can't believe anyone would pay for this wreck of a plugin. Support, even when your upgrade to paid, is negligible at best.

dont waste your time

This plugin has more 1 stars than any other, should be a clue. I didn't listen to that clue or all the reviews of this ecommerce being buggy. It worked pretty good until 3.8.9 released. Immediately broke my 3 sites. They did a quick fix on that one though. Later to find out shipping was broke from the update. Lost the ability to enter any numbers in the shipping and weights section of product edit, both new and previous products. This might even be fixed by now but after posting on their "support" forum the only replies I had were my own with additional information for finding a fix. I waited a week for nothing and was losing sales. Finally I switched to a different ecommerce and now that I've gotten past the learning curve I have figured out that the one I'm using now is actually better anyway. So now I have about 200 items to relist. Its gonna be a long weekend.

It's not worth the work you have to do in order to fix bugs

As mentioned above, support is poor. Well, the plugin is very buggy, if they think that that's the way of getting money, I'm going back to HTML, no problem!
