Why stick to default shipping options when you can customize things a bit? Here's some of the best plugins that offer shipping options for online stores, including those based on MarketPress.
We’re stepping up the game with the latest version of MarketPress, giving you an even more comprehensive WordPress eCommerce platform in one tidy and beautifully coded box.
MarketPress sets the standard for WordPress eCommerce solutions, providing an elegant shopping experience that supports all major payment gateways and allows you to easily manage distribution and shopping costs with custom shipping options.
Why spend thousands of dollars on cowboy-coded extensions and add-ons? There’s no need to purchase extra add-ons or special licenses when MarketPress brings together the power of dozens of different plugins in one solid standalone product.
Just a quick update on WPMU DEV’s extremely popular MarketPress E-Commerce plugin – it saw a number of improvements recently, especially in the area of payment gateways.
First up, there was the addition of Simplify Commerce by MasterCard and Australian based PIN Payment (beta).
In addition, multiple currency support was added to PayPal’s Payflow Pro gateway, and Euro support was added to Stripe in Ireland.
If you’ve ever built an e-commerce store, then you know that the better you can make the shopping cart experience, the more you’re going to sell. Keeping your customer on the line once he has decided to purchase something is very much like fishing. You need to start to reel him in before he gets away. Keeping the buyer mindful of what he has in his cart is one key to capturing that sale.
