wordpress ecommerce plugin comparison

review of wordpress plugins for commerce

why choosing wordpress for ecommerce instead of ecommerce solutions like prestashop or magento :


  • WordPress is a constantly evoluting platform
  • very efficient for writing articles and content, always necessary to complement product display


  • plugin might not follow wordpress evolution : a good indicator is the last update time of the plugin in the official worpdress repository

we have reviewed below some examples of wordpress solutions for eshopping : they all develop very interesting features, additionnal checks you might want to look before you test a solution are

  • what payment gateway do you need to install ? is this payment gateway developed for that solution
  • what languages are you going to  use ? is that solution localised in your language ?
  • does the system handle automatic creation of order process pages : shopping cart, order review, order process, account information with previous orders
