WordPress eStore is not a heavyweight online store/e-Commerce system. It is a simple and easy-to-use WordPress plugin that allows you to sell any kind of products (tangible and non-tangible) or services directly from your own site, with payment via PayPal, 2Checkout or Manual payment. It has the design flexibility to blend into your siteâ€™s look and feel, it has a shopping cart facility to handle sales of multiple products, and it provides purchasers with a customized time-limited encrypted download link to maintain the security of your digital assets. Best of all, it can be set up in less than five minutes.
The WP eStore plugin allows you to add “Add to Cart”, “Buy Now” or “Subscription” buttons anywhere on your wordpress blog (eg. posts, pages, sidebars) easily. It allows you to add the shopping cart anywhere on your blog too (eg. posts, pages, sidebars). The shopping cart shows the user what they currently have in the cart and allows them to remove the items.
After the buyer makes a payment, a pre-configured email is automatically sent to the buyer with an encrypted product download link (multiple links if the buyer purchased multiple products). The link automatically expires after a configured time.Â The seller also gets a product sale notification email. This is why the WP eStore plugin is great for selling digital products (ebook, mp3, photos etc) directly from your wordpress blog.
The encrypted link can be configured so it redirects the buyer to a web page when clicked. This is particularly useful when you want to set up a video on demand (V.O.D) system for example. You can also use this plugin to send membership info (login and password) to the buyer after he/she has paid for it.
With this plugin you can design the way you want to display the product listing (You use the WordPress editor to design the way you want the product listing to appear with images, inside a tableÂ etc, then just add an â€˜add to cartâ€™ button next/below the product with the trigger text which allows the buyer to purchase the product). You also have the flexibility of showing the shopping cart anywhere (posts, pages, sidebar) on your blog.
