Anyone use a Wordpress Shopping Cart ?
Wordpress Shopping Carts:
(1) WP-eCommerce plugin [details]
(2) ElegantThemes.com
(3) cart66.com (Theme used: Press75 Acquisto)
(4) eShop [details]
(5) Magento [13 blocks available] [details] [more details]
(6) Jigoshop [details] [theme]
(7) Ecwid for Wordpress.

Please respond to this thread if you are using xenforo + Wordpress + Wordpress Shopping Cart ! Let us know how it is working for you !

Responses:
I've used the WP-eCommerce plugin and it was great when I used it in the past.
ElegantThemes.com have accomplished a WordPress shopping system simply by using the built in WordPress pages and a little custom code, I think. http://www.elegantthemes.com/gallery/estore/
I have had great experience using this product and they have a lite version for free :) http://cart66.com/
Ecwid is a A drag-and-drop interface to shop the catalog. What I don't care for is that the products are hosted off-site, but on the other hand, they can handle payment processing if the client needs it.
EasyTarget: Zencart is very advanced, lots of add-ons, world wide payment options, stable and actively supported, and oh ya, its free as in beer.

The purpose of this thread is to benefit others ... and to get other people's first hand impressions.
Lots of people here are considering Wordpress as a CMS.
Xenforo doesn't have a Mature Shopping Cart with it.
This thread will help Xenforo owners learn about what Cart options are out there.
Seconded. I'm also a Wordpress +Forum setup because no one forum does any good job at CMS. And since I have started to use Wordpress with a custom theme, I think it's brilliant.

I've done a few bespoke shopping sites but would love to be able to do this in Wordpress instead, so looking forward to seeing what shopping solutions there are.

People with no interest in this, or nothing constructive to add should simply move on to another thread!!

I come to know you about shopping cart for wordpress.
I have a url which can help you. AWON
Added eShop.

Not released yet, but i'm keeping my eyes on http://jigoshop.com/ at the moment.
Site not loading ? Update: Aug 9, 2011 - works now.

Another option: Magento
http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordgento/
Wordgento allows you to seamlessly integrate Magento blocks and sessions into your WordPress theme.

Wordgento uses simple php snippets to return blocks from your Magento installation, these include your Magento:
  • CSS/JS
  • Includes
  • Welcome Message
  • Logo
  • URL
  • Top Links
  • Search
  • Top Menu
  • Wishlist
  • Recently Viewed
  • Compare
  • Sidebar Cart
  • Newsletter
13 different blocks can be inserted: http://www.tristarwebdesign.co.uk/wordpress-plugins/wordgento/
Aug 2011: Looks like version 2 is going to be out soon.
Note: I asked the http://www.aitoc.com/ coders to make a xenforo magento addon. :)
Request this too - http://www.aitoc.com/en/contacts.html#contacts

Slight bump, but any others out there?

And what happens if I use the Wordpress Bridge from XenScripts + XenDynamic and try to use some of these WP addons? Ecommerce to WP to xF...possible? Or Armageddon?

I do not have it on a live site, but I was playing with the Ecwid cart for Wordpress. What's neat is that it has a drag-and-drop interface to shop the catalog. What I don't care for is that the products are hosted off-site, but on the other hand, they can handle payment processing if the client needs it.
