    Wordpress for e-commerce?

    What would you choose for the ideal Wordpress site for e-commerce?

    This thread is not for "I suggest Joomla" etc - it is for Wordpress only.

    I want to create a small e-commerce site for local businesses where the actual stock items count would be a around 100-200. I have looked at getshopped . org and would like some feedback on the ideal route to go. What other plugins are essential to launch WP + WP e-commerce into the stratosphere?

    I ask this as I haven't used WP seriously before, but now I believe it's an serious contender for small business requirements, especially with affiliate, and membership modules.

    Over to you...
    We are what we repeatedly think and do, Success, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

    Recently I use ShopperPress for one of our company clients. It supports stock control and has a lot of payment gateways available.

    But it is not free, it is $79.

    And if you want free stuff, go for eShop For Wordpress, it is also good. But maybe you may need customization. And you always expected your clients to have many changes.

    Hope it helps.

    Just a small tip : use the following permalink structure, it will create 100% seo suitable links and will get good rankings for you long tail product name pages

    Code:
    /%category%/%postname%/
    Also use the No Category Base Plugin to remove the category base from WordPress ( Very Important )

    ShopperPress 4.1.1 - BYO WP Shop on Any Niche, Accepts 20 Forms of Payment
    Okay Finally found a copy of version 4.1.1 and thought I'd pass in the info for those interested.

    NOTE:
    The instructions will tell you to upload the entire folder 'UPLOAD' using BINARY mode and run validator.php as well as checksum.md5. Please note that these validators are to check that the release is legit from a hacking team, not to validate shopperpress.

    Sales:
    Code:
    www.shopperpress.com/
    Demos:
    Code:
    http://www.shopperpress.com/wordpress-shopping-theme/
    Download:
    Code:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?mob70dxn1xmgn32
    EDIT: IMPORTANT!
    As mentioned in this thread...
    Code:
    http://www.feedurbrain.com/forum/showthread.php?19914-Wordpress-ShopperPress-4.1.1-Accepts-20-Forms-of-Payment
    I haven't run the validation and from what I can see the theme is nulled etc.
    Please note, I will never run this on a live site. When it comes to advanced wordpress plugins/themes and doing business online. It is always better to have a legit copy. I own a number of various plugins and themes and would pay the price again without a second thought.

    BUT, I do like to ensure that what I am buying is actually what is being promised. So I like to find nulled plugins/themes to test drive them.
    Shopperpress, now that I have played with it is a pretty slick theme. What got me interested in it was that it can accept payments from 20 different payment gateways. The top three for me 2checkout, Moneybookers, and Alertpay.

    Will I use it - Probably not, but I now have the code to integrate, or at least see how they intergrated those payment gateways I like.

    Don't forget the legal perspective!

    I am building a online shop right now and before we chose the software we also looked at wordpress ecommerce themes/solutions. But here in Germany it is very unsuitable to use a wordpress ecommerce theme, because you have to customize a lot of things.. But I don't know how that works in you country? Just want to give you this hint, maybe it helps you with your decision..

    @Benlinus -

    You are exactly right - most of the wordpress e-commerce plugins/themes are in fact limited - especially when in comes to gateways - I mean, for example my country doesn't use paypal. So I have to go to great lengths to right custom code to allow for the gateways I can use. Which is why I was so happy to get hold of shopperpress 4.1.1, as it has 20 payment options. I don't think I will ever use(which means buy) the theme though. But I can definitely reverse engineer the code for the payment gateways.

    I think I would use Opencart for eCommerce

    I like opencart a lot too and I often use it for my projects and for my clients too. I like using some templates for it also, which makes the process much easier to me. I would recommend you to try it out too
