I recently had a chance to install and test WooCommerce for WordPress. This is a very robust ecommerce shopping cart that integrates right into WordPress, which many sites use for their CMS.
While the plugin works pretty well, there are a few things to watch out for:
- WooCommerce is “free”, but you would likely require some plugins – for example most of the shipping and credit card plugins cost money. So by the time you are done, your “free” solution might cost $100-$200 in plugins. This is still a reasonable bargain, but just be aware up front.
- Some themes are WooCommerce compatible, but many are not. Even so, integration is not too hard, just expect to spend some time / money getting the look of the shopping area customized.
Overall, though, I’m impressed with this plugin. It’s a nice way to add purchasing functionality to your wordpress-run website.
