Thank you gentlemen! I am looking into this today and hopefully figure it all out! I have a Business plan and I am located in Sweden. I couldn’t find the Store feature under My Sites Dashboard. I think I need to install a plugin, like Woocommerce, in aid to get the store functioning, right? I am trying to install the plugin, but it warns me that I will use the feature ”Writing Helper” which I am very familiar in using!

Users are getting accustomed to the action of clicking off a popup to exit; use this inclination by closing out only the mini-cart when a user clicks elsewhere.
This plugin will allow you to sell products or services on your website using an Add to Cart Button and View Cart Button. The Shopping Cart itself is hosted on PayPal.
Noor, I’m experiencing the same issue. I know it worked because I’d tested it in the sandboxed environment and I’m just switching over to the real account. Now when I empty the cart, all “continue shopping” links return me to my home page. The only thing that changed recently was I’d upgraded the plugin to 126.96.36.199. I’m in the midst of locking down my site before I open it up so it’s not reachable yet. Is the previous version of the plugin available? I’d like to go back and test with that version. Thanks Barry A
Hi @Noor, thanks very much for this awesome plugin. I’ve tried more than a few others and this one is the best.
As a business owner, you always have to be aware of the cons of any potential decision that you’re about to make. These are the negative aspects to stand-alone shopping cart functionality:
This essentially means you should have a UX designer around if you don’t have experience with this. The developer just needs to build the design you choose.
For the ecommerce store owner, it leads to an accelerated checkout. It also can provide additional opportunities to cross-sell related products and make further sales.
In researching the shopping cart solutions, I decided to do some research and figure out which ones were the most popular. I thought I’d look into Google Trends to get an idea of which shopping carts had the greatest search volume.
The layer that appears when we click on “add to cart” speaks to us like a salesperson: “Do you need a protection plan or an extended warranty? If there any, you can select it right here. Does the product you selected have any recommended accessories? Pick them up now!”
The first step was to make the “add to cart” indicator apparent via a popup or menu navigation slide-down.
In the meantime, I realized it's a daunting task so I've asked my colleague Razvan to help with the research. So over the last few weeks he's been constantly scouring the web to compile the most complete list ever, ranging from the usual suspects (Shopify, Bigcommerce etc), to enterprise level behemoths and open source alternatives, they're all here, with a short description each and some useful data, like the year they've launched, starting price, and domain authority. 2015NO$9945NOEP rating Mobility EcommerceALL-IN-ONE Cloud SaaS Portal empowering e-commerce companies. YES$399 – Usually, open-source platforms are marked as “FREE” both in the “FREE trial” and “Starting from” tabs except those shopping carts that were built using open-source frameworks; – “Domain Authority” is a measure of the power of a domain name and is one of many search engine ranking factors. Domain authority is based on three factors: Age, Popularity, and Size. Here we've used this tool to find the DA of each site; – “TBC” stands for “To be contacted” as some of these companies decided to disclose their fees only upon being contacted.
When we add a product to it, a small layer expands at the right side – that’s common. Then, after displaying the first time, the layer will disappear. But, when we hover our mouse over the cart icon, the layer will appear again and will stay visible as longs we keep our mouse hovering over the cart icon. This is a very handy feature because we can see the cart without clicking, and only when we need to.
The currency is setup as USD by default with the standard dollar sign ($) symbol, but all currencies supported by PayPal are supported by the PayPal Simple Shopping Cart plugin.
