4. eShop

Utilize eShop if you want customers to create profiles to sign up on your site to purchase your products and services. It also allows you to view basic statistics and download your sales data for your convenience. Also enjoy multiple gateways like PayPal, WebtoPay, iDeal, and other popular portals.

5. Yak for WordPress

YAK stands for “Yet Another Kart,” but in my opinion, this shopping cart really stands out from the rest.  This free WordPress plugin is one of my favorite shopping cart solutions because it allows the user to create products from either posts or pages and also includes a basic XML feed. You will enjoy the configurable shipping address feature and your customers will love the plugin’s order tracker.

6. WPdeposit

I love Themeforest’s WPdeposit for any site that needs a deposit system for advertisements, subscriptions and the like. Aside from offering PayPal, and iDeal as gateways, manual bank payment is also an option. The plugin also comes with a full developer guide that can be used to create and customize a module for your site.


Download the WPdeposit Plugin | Price: $15

7. WooCommerce

WooCommerce is known as the plugin that allows you to sell anything on your site, “beautifully.” This plugin is backed by the Woo brand which will give your site what I like to call “e-credibility.” Some of the best features include local and international delivery as well as extensions for creating personalized products and Google Product Feed.


Download the WooCommerce Plugin | Price: FREE

8. WP Auctions

This plugin is acclaimed among many WordPress users as the best Auction plugin there is, so a little investment for auctioning items on your site via this plugin is probably worth it. Enjoy 3 bidding engines, registered only users and reserve price features as well as options for Pro and Pro Plus plugin.


Download the WP Auctions Plugin | Price: $35-$279

9. WP Live-Shopping Widgets

This plugin is one every eCommerce site should use. Using this widget, you can showcase featured shopping offers in the sidebar of your website. Use the “live-shopping” widget to create custom badges, buttons and banners that pull in your products and draw attentions, clicks and hopefully new sales!

Download the WP Live-Shopping Plugin | Price: FREE

10. ArtPal

Originally intended for artists to be able to sell their materials online, the ArtPal plugin offers easy PayPal integration and professional support for business to business sales, as well as real-time sales updates so that you never have to worry about selling a product twice.  Whether you’re selling your artwork or a hard product, you’ll like ArtPal!

  • Hi….
    Nice Post ..Ecommerce plugins are the devices that allow you to sell products online. As you know, you can sell from your site in many different ways, but it is super easy to sell from a WordPress blog with only one of these plugins.

  • Rich

    you have actually mixed up eShop the plugin with eshop theme – the two are not connected. The review is about the theme, but you link to the plugin.

  • Have used both WooCommerce and Shopp. WooCommerce wins hands down. Support is great in comparison although Shopp does have much better documentation.

  • Taylor

    Thee-Commerce is extremely the best word press plug-in for e-commerce
    web sites based on word press content management system though is not great and has some issues. For serious e-commerce web pages.

    I’ve noted an incredible plugin intended for wp-ecommerce termed “WP E-commerce Authorize. Net”.

    That Plugin will allow the WP E-Commerce Store owners to accept credit cards. it can take less then 5 minutes

    to set up and is by far the quickest way to integrate

    really excellent plugin… keep it up good work..

    I’ve found a fantastic plugin regarding WP News Scroller referred to as “WP Easy News Scroller” at

    WP Easy News Scroller Plugin adds latest news with Title, Image and Description. One can easily install and setup the plugin into the WordPress site.

    Great collection… helpful tips for all bloggers looking for useful plugins to use. I’m a blogger myself and had experience difficulties embedding photo galleries. This one I found lately It creates a 360° perspective of your images. Great for enhancing your web content.

  • There’s also a WP plugin called vCita Appointment Scheduling that offers services, if you’re a service oriented entrepreneur.

    I write resumes, career portfolios and offer career planning and coaching sessions. The plugin lets clients pick a time for our session(s) & pay right there on the spot before the appointment is placed on my Google calendar (or whatever professional calendar you use).

    Awesome plugin, indeed!
