I need a shopping cart and storefront for Wordpress. I'm familiar with many of them, but if you have experience, I'd love to know what you think is best.
I'll have multiple t-shirts. Different sizes, men's/women's, colors, etc.
I want to be able to manage it easily and have a shopping cart built in. PayPal and other gateway options are a plus.
Please check out my friend Jk Allen. He has a blog called the hustlersnotebook.com (often has over 100 comments every time he does a post) and he is a pretty good branding coach. He also has a side online business called the growtheffect.com where he builds custom websites and a storefront for you. He is steadily growing in his business and has many fans. I hope this helps you!
I recently went on a search for a WP storefront as well. One that I really liked was wepay.com It literally took me 1 minute to get it set up. Super easy. Your customers can use their credit cards and there are no monthly fees. There is a 3.5% transaction fee for each purchase. Their customer service rep even called me personally to ask how everything was going after I set it up. Great customer service. I had it all set up on my blog and came to realize they did not have autoresponder functionality. This was a deal breaker for me and I let the customer rep know. He was going to let their development team know asap.
So I had to look elsewhere. I looked at e-junkie, but it was pretty complex to use. I ended up using digitaldeliveryapp.com. The interface is easy to use and the monthly fee is modest at $9 with a 30 day trial. I've been pleased with it so far.
If wepay.com adds the autoresponder I would definitely think about using them because I liked their product so much. But until then I'll stick with digitaldeliveryapp.com.
Hope that helps Justin.
It's been a while since I have looked at Wordpress/Shopping cart integrations. A while ago I just decided to use Magento when clients ask for an eCommerce store front. Just install it as a subdomain and be off to the races.
Sticking with Wordpress... a developer friend of mine likes the Shopp plugin, https://shopplugin.net/
Hope that helps.
I just did a site using Joomla and Virtuemart. It's not Wordpress, but if you know how to use WP, the learning curve isn't too steep. And there are a TON of plug-in's.
WP e-Commerce is a good plugin to use. It integrates with many payment gateways including paypal. It's free and relatively easy to set up and use.
I went through this process to get my business off the ground
http://sagealarm.com. I ended up testing almost every ecommerce wordpress
plugin out there. I have a slightly different business model though, which
required reoccurring payments for a subscription where the customers would be able to cancel anytime without having to call or send an email. I eventually
settled with the woocommerce plug-in, and used stripe as the payment
gateway. The main selling point for woocommerce was the number of
extensions available for it, such as a lot of payment gateways, UPS and
FedEX shipping calculators, the list goes on and on. I hope you find one
that works for you! Good Luck!
I'm currently in the process of building a store as well. I din't want to go with a hosted solution like shopify and decided to go with WP. I've tried WO eCommerce but wasn't convinced. The backend works fine but I had too much trouble with the frontend.
I now settled for WooCommerce and will use it with a good theme. If feels good and didn't give me any trouble yet. I think it does come with the right balance between ease of use and enterprise spirit. WP eCommerce seems to have been developed by people who are too far into the enterprise side of software development while the commercial plugin "shopp" seems too lose and too easy for its own good.
I hope this short review based on my little experience helps you.
