What is the best WordPress plugin for e-commerce?

Hello everybody,

I am in desperate need of some advice because I need some information about choosing the right plugin for an e-commerce website. My friend is currently setting one up but we both don't know much about it. We checked out the WordPress's plugins section and there's so many to pick from... it's overwhelming. Many look really good such as: WooCommerce, EcWid, MarketPress, WP Commerce and more.

Therefore, I need help. What do you guys think? What is the best WordPress plugin for e-commerce? Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance!

Yeah it's about the same answer from me Tron. WooComm is probably the best in terms of usability and flexibility. And the most popular and most used ecomm plugin for WP of them all. But what a lot of people don't realize is that WooComm is just a shopping cart at the end of the day. And there are some people that prefer to use lighter cart plugins or options instead of WooComm. Some people prefer to make their own actually. But it's free and quite evolved today so you can't go wrong! When I use the WooComm plugin though, I also make use of the WooComm Swiss Army Knife as it gives you more control over the settings of your e-commerce site. Sadly it's not available on the WP Plugin Suppository. You have to "know people" to get it these days. What is the best WordPress plugin for e-commerce?

It looks like you have gotten some great feedback on this thread. Since I don't do ecommerce with Wordpress, looking forward to everyone's ideas is going to be interesting for me. I think using a good Wordpress plug in is half the Ecommerce battle.

It just has to be WooCommerce! WC is a big world of it own. With support from thousands of developers (with add-ons and other perks), you can't go any wrong with woocommerce. Also, wocommerce is compatible with a plethora of themes that you'll think developers are making it a must for their themes to be wocommerce compatible. I recommend this plugin buddy - has all you need and more!

I use woocommerce for just over 1 year and I confess that this plugin really surprised me. I realize selling digital products and woocommerce meets me perfectly in all aspects.

With woocommerce I stopped opting for the Saas model e-commerce platforms and saved a lot of money when it came to creating my virtual store. Highly recommend!

Without any doubt, WooCommerce is the best plugin for the commerce. You can see that such plugins have some cost. That being said, if you can get payment gateway setup for low cost. Then surely it can be good plugin for making a good business on it's own. That's how I have managed to setup the e-commerce website for some of the clients. It's lot quicker to setup on WordPress.

The best i have used is Jigoshop.

This plugin also offers a variety of reporting features, which includes sales and stock data, so you can get a real-time estimate on how your store is performing.There are also a variety of extensions and themes, to help you further customize your store and add additional functionality.

Prior to reading this thread, I had never heard about jigoshop. How do you compare this plugin with woocommerce? They say woocommerce is the best ecommerce plugin for wordpress and it is better to use wordpress with woocommerce rather than ecommerce CMS. I don't have any experience with other ecommerce CMS.
