PayPal Shopping Cart Plugin

Filed under: — Carthik @ 1:10 am

From the backwaters* of the WordPress World, here’s a PayPal shopping cart plugin. You can run a store, simple and easy, with WordPress.

In just the second post in his new WordPress blog, Eoin, the author, has the following to say :

What it does: Prints PayPal “add to cart” and “view cart” buttons, so you can use WordPress to sell stuff.

Why and how: I was working on a full-on shopping cart plugin for WordPress, when I got bored and decided it’d be much faster to just tap into PayPal’s free Shopping Cart. You’ll need a free PayPal account (sign up at PayPal.com). You can customise the look and feel of the shopping cart a little from within your PayPal account using custom “tempates”.

*I say “backwaters” since this plugin, like many others (unfortunately) is not listed at the wiki plugins page. I urge all plugin authors to add their plugins to that page, for maximum visibility, and to promote the use of their plugins. It’s the closest we have a comprehensive listing of plugins for WordPress. Plugin users can help by adding plugins that are not already listed on that page, so that someone else will run into them, and find it useful.
