Many people have been asking for it, and it looks like the first plugin for a shopping cart is basically ready. Odd that a blogging engine like WordPress would have/need a shopping cart, but I guess that only goes to show its ability to adapt and evolve to fit any situation it is thrown into.
This plugin adds a full-featured shop to WordPress 1.5 and 2.0. It features:
- AJAX for adding items to the cart
- Set your own currency and country (no language files yet)
- Global tax and shipping allocation (can be overidden by different products)
- Paypal as payment provider (Protx being developed – further options to come
- Discount box allows items to be shown for sale
- Shipping tokens allow you to optionally allocate special shipping prices
- Multiple category levels
- Can be styled by css
Please bear in mind this is the first release.
