First thing’s first, most solutions in these shopping cart software reviews are meant to run on Linux-based servers. After all, most websites are hosted on Linux.
Hi Noor. I spoke for nearly an hour with Bluehost support. They checked and found there were no restrictions on WP PayPal (or any other plugin). So the IPN notifications are not being blocked by my server. .
Now that it's clear who should consider an ecommerce plugin for WordPress, along with some of my original thoughts on the options, it's time to look at the top eight tools I evaluated for this test: WooCommerce Easy Digital Downloads Ecwid BigCommerce SendinBlue Cart66 Cloud WP Ecommerce
Businesses of all shapes and sizes use the internet to increase their sales by setting up a shopping cart on a WordPress website. In turn, the ecosystem has fed this need by providing themes and plugins designed specifically for eCommerce.

@Eric, By homepage do you mean your theme template file? You can embed it anywhere in the content area of a post/page. But if it’s a PHP file you will need to tell WordPress to filter the shortcode: Michael G Jamal
At first sight, this e-store looks like countless others in the electronic devices market. But if you click on the “add the cart” button, a new layer immediately appears, with a lot of options too!
The base shipping cost only takes effect when the products in the cart have shipping costs applied to them. That way, if someone purchases a digital downloadable item from the store which doesn’t carry a shipping cost, the base price will not take effect. This isn’t ideal because in some cases you may only want the base shipping cost to reflect the total shipping cost for the cart for physical products. The workaround is to use a shipping cost of $0.0001 for individual products as that won’t affect the total (because it rounds), and only the base shipping cost will be present in the cart at checkout.
Now, BigCommerce is working on bringing together the power of WordPress content with the superior selling clout of BigCommerce. It’s actually similar to that of Ecwid, where you can place the BigCommerce module on multiple sites and not have any problems with syncing.
Hi – I’m getting orders and am getting Paypal confirmation, but I’m not seeing anything added to the Orders tab in WordPress – can you advise?
Basically a shopping cart allows you to select and de-select items to purchase, and once you have finished, to then go ahead and purchase them.

Any further updates on this issue? IPN responses became intermittent a few days ago. Yesterday I was receiving maybe 50% and they were all delayed by 4-8 hours (thought PayPal was showing approvals almost immediately). I was 2 revisions behind on the plugin so I updated and now IPN notifications are no longer being received at all. PayPal confirms all notifications are queued. I really would like to get the ipn url for local testing. Could we get that? Or a generic path to use for local testing? Rhonda
