I need a really simple shopping cart

14 replies
I need a shopping cart for WP. I've tried Shop-Script FREE, but I really REALLY hate working with coding and all kinds of crap. All I ever get is "Warning: include(./cfg/connect.inc.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/content/25/3827825" etc etc.

I need a SIMPLE program/script/plugin so that a person can push an "add to basket" button, get it into the basket, have the possibility to add several products etc. And the program/script whatever must add up the sums so that the customer can see the full price.

But it's gotta be as simple as possible. Maybe something like this: bokmarkedet.no/shop/cart.php
It's in Norwegian, but you probably get the point.

    If you don't want to deal with the inevitable configuration and coding issues that come along with having your own cart, why not use one of the carts/online store websites that is out there already.

    Something like an Etsy store, but look around there are lots of them.

      PrestaShop actually offers a Norweigan translation pack, so that may be worth looking into.

    You may consider this established free e-commerce plugin for WP. It was quite simple last time I used it. They have given instructions about how to translate it into your own language. And I found a Norwegian language packet for it too (%85 complete).

    Translate Instructions:
    Wp-e-Commerce in Your Language - GetShopped.org
    Norvegian Language Pack:
    Issue 15 - wp-e-commerce - Norwegian (bokmål) translation - Shopping cart plugin for WordPress - Google Project Hosting

    Zen-cart is a good shopping cart package, it was not designed for WP, but you can still use it on WP sites.

      If you don't want to host your own cart a free option is ecwid. It looks pretty slick and you can upload your store to Facebook. You can also and paste the widget codes into any blog. I really like it, however if your concerned about seo you may want to go for the paid option. Another feature I like about it is you can upload the products to google product listings.

    I'm with LorrieJean here, I've been using ecwid and have also found it fantastic. The beauty of Ecwid is that it can be added to your website but you can also create a Facebook store too if you want to go down that road. Everything works from one dashboard so you upload products once and it shows up on all the pages/sites you have the store installed on. This saves on double selling a product if you only have one and creates some great website/facebook interaction.
    It supports loads of different shopping carts so you can chose which one you want to use with it. Heaps of flexibility.

    I have released a free wordpress plugin called digishop.
    If you are interested you can look it up on wordpress.org which is really simple ecommerce solution as it adds "Buy Now" button and redirects to paypal.
    It's great for digital products.

    Note: thought that this is relevant so I decided to mention my plugin.
    Mods delete it if it makes sense for you.

    Are you using WordPress? Have you tried qSandbox yet?

    GetShopped, WP Ecommerce is hands down the best in my humble opinion. We love it. Use it on client sites, etc. Free and paid versions. Must-have tool.
