I’ve recently mentioned that I now prefer to build e-commerce sites using WordPress for the entire setup. In today’s edition of Links of Interest, I’m highlighting a couple of WordPress plugins I’ve used and one I plan on using soon:
- Shopp – This was the first truly full-featured WordPress plugin I’ve used. You can set it in action here. While it has good capabilities, I wasn’t impressed with how much work it took to get the layout exactly like I wanted it. If you don’t want to mess with the layout too much, I’d say it’s a good solution. Otherwise, check this next link:
- PHPurchase – Despite a somewhat misleading name for a WordPress e-commerce plugin, I love how this plugin is more concerned with the backend while leaving the frontend display to me. See an example of how I setup a site with PHPurchase at the SeaHope Partners website.
- Cart66 – Just this week, I learned that PHPurchase has been rebranded as Cart66. WordPress theme developer Jason Schuller has released a great looking “Etsy-style” theme which works with Cart66.
