WP eStore Questions (F.A.Q)
If you have any questions please leave a comment below.
Comments (807 responses)
@June, Yes you can add a coupon and specify conditions including the conditions you are looking for.
You can read more about this here: https://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/?p=364
Can I create coupons that are applied to a subtotal amount and specify the amount it has to be over before it can be applies?
I just wanted to thank you for a great plugin that works out of the box. I have tried many different eCommerce plugins over the years. However most of them were not user friendly or always had an issue.
With the eStore it worked as you guys said it would out of the box. I can’t wait to use this on my other sites.
@Tracy, All our plugins are only compatible with WordPress.org sites. WordPress.com doesn’t allow you to add custom plugins.
Is this plug in compatible for wordpress.com or ONLY wordpress.org?
@Shawn, If you are using Buy Now buttons you can specify a different PayPal account per button.
There is also the following options if you use the eStore and Affiliate together.
I am sorry if this question has been asked and answered before. Does this plugin allow for multiple vendors. i.e. [buyitem=”item1″ payto=”vendor1″]?
@Jarvis, Yes when you use the eStore and the “Extra Shortcodes Plugin Add-on (this is a free add-on)” you can do this. How it works is the customer can enter in their email address and see their purchases.
Does the WP eStore have any easy way for my customers to view their purchase history?
@Satsuke, Yes the eStore will support whatever currency that the payment gateway you are using supports.
Example: If you are using PayPal then you can use any currency supported by PayPal
You can see a list of PayPal supported currencies here: https://www.paypal.com/au/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/sell/mc/mc_intro-outside
Is the plugin support other currency beside dollar?
@Mike, yes you can do that. We also have a particular feature for protecting that page too (the content of the page will be accessible after clicking on the encrypted link):
Instead of sending customers to a download link to download a file, is it possible to give them an encrypted link that sends them to a website page containing a form? For example, I want customers to be able to access the form, but not be able to return to the same page without making another purchase.
@Monica, Yes you would need to use the WP eStore and WP eMember for this. The following documentation will explain how this works.
HI! Looks great and a quick question: can I drip content out with this? Sort of a fixed term membership where they purchase and get a segment sent to them every week for 6 weeks. Thanks!
@Jamie, Yes the WP eStore has a save and retrieve cart option. This gives you the ability to allow your customers to save their shopping cart content so that it can be retrieved at a later time.
Does the eStore have an option where my customers can save their cart and retrieve it at a later time?
Hi WP eStore team,
I’ve been using your plugin for the last few months and I thought I’d drop you a note. It’s one of the best pieces of software I’ve ever bought. Crammed with features and incredibly easy to configure and use. You’ve made taking our business on-line incredibly easy, and most importantly, successful.
Many thanks and best regards.
@Paul, We do have a few customers using our plugins with this theme. There are no known issues with this theme at this time.
This looks like a solution for my needs – selling workshop pack downloads on my site. I use the catalyst theme. Are you aware if any compatibility issues with it at all? http://digitalmarketingworkshop.co.uk thanks.
I love this plugin! I using that on different site and it’s just awesome in combination with the affiliate plugin. Easy setup and configuration. Unlimited options.
@Benny, Yes there is inventory control for a product. You can specify the quantity you have for a product once that quantity is sold out the buy button will change to a sold out image. When you add more quantity for the item (restock) the sold out image will go back to the buy button.
does it has ”in stock” function ? i mean to where i can place the number of availability to each item, once sold out , client can not add to shopping cart. something like this.
@Pitou31, Yes the plugin can be translated in french. More explanation on this in the FAQ:
What about the language ?
Is it translated in French language?
@Marie, Yes, eStore has a feature that allows you to use text link instead of a button to put a purchase link on your landing page for your product.
Can I use text links on my site instead of buttons?
@Adrian, Yes, you can create a grid view with your products using eStore.
Does estore have a way of creating a grid view for products?
Sorry if links are not allowed 🙂 Here’s the review – http://pluginswp.net/review/wp-estore-review-demo-and-download/ and yeah, needless to say that it’s THE BEST ECOMMERCE PLUGIN!!! Cheers
@Rebecca, Yes eStore plugin supports up-selling. Please take a look at the following article which should help you:
Does this plugin support upsells? I offer blog writing services. I’d like to offer blog writing, but then at checkout have the person have the option to add on other things such as me uploading the blog posts to their site, social media, etc. I’m wondering how to best do that with your plugin. Thanks!
@ Julianne, I am glad the plugin is working out for you and thank you for your kind words.
Oh my goodness! I have gone ahead and purchased your product with a bit of trepidation to be honest, watched the tutorials, uploaded something to my shop, tested it and it is working! The last shopping cart product I installed onto my shop with my headway themes crashed the whole site, luckily I had a backup and was able to get everything back. So I was not that confident installing your eStore because of that. However, I dutifully backed up first and followed your instructions and it has worked beautifully. You have no idea how grateful I am. It was so easy. I have even got it integrated with my Aweber list especially for my customers. I am so happy!! Thanks so much, words can not describe how grateful I am. And if anyone is reading this, believe me I am not making this testimonial up, go to my site http://artgrowlove.com and see how “out there” it is and you will understand why I was so worried about mucking it up now that I have it looking “just so”. Thanks again, wonderful wp eStore people.
@ Kat, There is no limit to the number of items you can have or sell in the eStore.
Hey guys! Is there a limit to the number of products that I can sell through your store? THanks =) =) Kat
Yes you can add bundle packs with the eStore. This includes a digital product with a physical one. You can read more about this here:
Can I make bundle packages with the eStore? I would like to bundle a digital product and a physical book together.
@Lulia, I would use Amazon s3 with the eStore. You can read more about this here:
I have maybe 2 – 3Gb of data (video tutorials )
that I want to place online for sale – does anyone have a suggestion for an
online server service (that does not cost the earth?)
Keep up the good work!
@Angela, Yes our plugins work with Genesis themes. =)
does this work well with genesis theme?
You can find the Extra Shortcodes plugin here: https://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/wp-estore-shortcodes-and-functions-reference-460
Where can i download the wp-estore extra shortcodes plugin?
Hi Liz, no you do not need the PayPal plugin anymore since you got WP eStore.
I’ve been following your instructions step by step to setup an online store for selling downloadable photos.
I was able to integrate Paypal shopping cart plugin with the NextGen Gallery plugin.
I just purchased eStore from your site and installed it so that I can have secure downloads.
Question: Now that I have the eStore plugin, do I still need the Paypal plugin? It seems redundant and confusing to have both.
Sorry if this seems like a dumb question. Thanks for all the tips! 🙂
@Lim, Yes we do have something like this. I believe the following feature is what you are looking for.
I have a list of pre-generated license keys and I need to send one out each time someone purchases one of my products.
So my question is do you have a feature that will allow me to do this?
Just a note to say I am building a new page now and I LOVE YOU GUYS!! Love the eStore fancy Buy Now buttons and the seamless integration with Affliate Platform. Who needs anything more complicated than this? Looks great, works great, no brainer price — LOVE LOVE LOVE
P.S. OH and your customer service is awesome too.
@Jacob, I believe the following post explains what you are looking for: https://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/ecommerce/?p=262
You can sell bundles that are not zipped together.
