Fundamental Differences Between Ecommerce Plugins


 >> A review of the fundamental differences between WordPress ecommerce plugins

Let’s talk about the fundamental differences between the various WordPress ecommerce plugins. Everybody knows that there are a lot of ecommerce plugins out there. Some plugins focus on digital products while others are designed for physical products or donations.

Here are 7 questions to help you understand the fundamental differences between the various ecommerce plugins for WordPress.

  1. What types of products can you sell?
  2. What features are in the core plugin?
  3. What features do you have to buy as add-ons?
  4. What payment gateways are supported?
  5. Can you accept credit cards AND offering PayPal at the same time?
  6. How do you secure the payments?
  7. Do you need a special “ecommerce” theme or does it work with any WordPress theme?

Most of the WordPress ecommerce plugins require you to buy add-ons to get the features you need. For example, most payment gateways tend to be available as premium add-on plugins. Cart66 has built-in support for over 100 payment gateways.

You can also accept credit card payments and offer PayPal as a payment option at the same time.

How Is Cart66 Different?

Cart66 brings everything you need together in one place. All the features are available without having to buy any additional add-ons. All the features are developed by our own team and are seamlessly integrated and always kept up to date.
