Before we take a look at our list, you’ll notice that some popular choices are missing. This is down to the criteria we’ve used to make our selections – some plugins simply couldn’t meet our standards when it came to reviews or ratings, while others hadn’t been updated in a while. What’s left is our pick of ten of the best shopping cart plugins for WordPress. Let’s take a look!
In order to create a smart payment button, you just need to insert a shortcode and a price in the button parameter. The shortcode needs to be inserted into a shortcode block of the default WordPress post/page editor. .
Below is the shortcode I am adding but after adding the first product to the cart and then pressing “Continue Shopping” and then adding the second item to the cart the first item is removed leaving only the second item hence the cart will only ever show one item and not multiple items!!!
Putting a product on sale for a limited time is a great way to increase sales. This e-commerce WordPress plugin creates a product countdown option for online shops created with WooCommerce. It allows you to customize the counter in a way that will attract more customers and match your brand.
We’ll even show you how to set up your eCommerce platform so you can start selling soonest!
X-Cart is a professional solution that integrates with WordPress, provided that you have the technical expertise to make it work side by side. Alternatively, WordPress can be integrated into X-Cart with products and buy buttons (requires less technical knowledge).
@Greg, There is a custom button image option. Please check the documentation for more information. Roland Maurice
Easy Digital Downloads is the obvious choice for non-physical goods, but once again, I would suggest you install the plugin on your site to see how it all works out. I can't be certain that one plugin will work better for your company over the other, but I can give you the facts and features that you might want to consider.
Here is a plugin that allows you to create dynamic buttons like PayPal Buy Now, Add to Cart, Donation or Subscription by using shortcodes that enable PayPal checkout on your WordPress site.

You would also argue that Ecwid might end up being less expensive than WooCommerce, and other WordPress eCommerce plugins, because of the simple fact that it sticks to a reasonable monthly payment plan. Not only that, but the core plugin is completely free and you’re getting more built-in features as opposed to a library of add-ons.
For example, you can check out Divi Juice Shop layout below, or find the live demo here.
Hi Noor – In the full editor UI, I don’t see a shortcode block. Do you know where I might find it? samuel cousin
So, FYI, in accordance with the above, your documented functionality of [wp_paypal button="buynow" name="My product" amount=""] does not work; it throws an error message stating “Amount cannot be empty”
Sorry for misunderstanding 🙂 I changed my review on WP.org too. Please delete this comment. Sarah
Yes. You can configure sale notification from the “Email Settings” interface of the plugin. Can the customers be sent to a cancel URL when they click “cancel” from the PayPal checkout page?
For quick and secure PayPal payments, this WordPress payment plugin is an exquisite choice. The large variety of payments and fast payments can be made by filling out forms. What is more, they can be done relatively quickly by using shortcodes.
