Ecommerce and WordPress

Why Are People Using Ecommerce and WordPress Together?

Is WordPress the best platform to use for Ecommerce….?Star

Well the poles say not too good for the new e-commerce plugin for WordPress …so we installed an e-commerce WordPress site here…lets see if you like it? we did…..

Click here to see the demo

In checking this platform out…i find it to be stable and easy for a customer to ad products.

Yet the ease of installation was surprising, im sure with some tweaking this plugin together with wordpress could be a very good platform for selling e-books and simple items…

Larger shops should go with oscommerce.

But wordpress ecommerce does impress me. we will see what the future holds…

I had some time time to fiddle with this and added another product but i found that even tho the images were in the right place on the server the images didn’t pull up when clicked….strange …. i haven’t found the cause for this as i did check the chmod on the folder and its at 755 which is correct. hmmmmmmmm anyone have an idea?

The other thing is i installed the default WordPress theme and it seems to be displaying the products better than the theme that’s recommended for the plugin…..another strange happening…
