WordPress Simple Paypal Shopping Cart

shopping-cartA friend of mine, Michele Albion, wanted some help updating her website michelealbion.com.  We discussed her site and how she wanted the site to look.  Based on our discussions, she found a new theme which fit perfectly.  We updated her WordPress installation, added a few plugins, and changed over to the new theme.

She has a relatively small number of products to sell but had no online sales.  I set her up with the  WordPress Simple Paypal Shopping Cart plugin and the UI for WordPress Simple Paypal Shopping Cart plugin.  In a few minutes, we had her online store good to go.   If she had many products to sell, she would have needed a product with a full-fledged catalog system such as WP E-Commerce, Jigoshop, or Woocommerce.  Also, if she needed a payment gateway other than Paypal, this solution would not have worked.  In the past, I would usually go to Paypal, make hosted buttons, and copy/paste the code into a post.  I think the WordPress Simple Paypal Shopping Cart plugin is a better solution for her going forward because of its simplicity.

Please go to Michele’s site, take a look, and maybe buy one of her books.  They make great holiday gifts and she’ll even sign it for you!
