WordPress Checkout

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

WordPress Checkout plugin page has been moved to it’s own domain wordpress-checkout.com to allows more examples and better support.

This is a simple WordPress Shopping Cart plugin that allows you to transform your posts and pages in products. With a simple tag you can control what you want to show (price, quantity, options, buttons) in your posts.
The plugin uses templates, so you can easily fix and match the plugin to your wordpress theme and modify how your products, cart, and process pages looks like.
With an editor button you can create products on the fly.


  • Allows to manage products like posts and use a simple post for several products.
  • No cart needed if you are selling just one item.
  • You can include to your products options like color, size, etc.
  • Easy to customize.
  • Uses Paypal to process the payments.

  1. Upload the “wordpress-checkout” folder to the “/wp-content/plugins/” directory.

  1. Hi,
    I’ve been using the plugin for a couple of years now. I just noticed that the checkout form is showing up above the website as well as in the actual body of the page. I have never noticed this before but it has been two years 🙂

    Can you take a look at the page and perhaps tell me what is going on? I’m sure it is something very simple. Thanks!

  2. This plugin seems not supported anymore, very sad, couse this is exactly what Im locking for. A cart adding on default posts. Quick update info as widget/ ajax and a checkout page. Is there anyout there? Went trough whole WP plugin respority….

  3. FireBug shows me this bug:

    TypeError: tinymce.dom.Event._add is not a function


    And Chrome this one:

    Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method ‘_add’

    Probably by a plug-in does not work. Do not fill the shortcode form.

    1. I had to insert the enter to the code readable.
      I removed this feature bottom line:

      tinymce.dom.Event._add => tinymce.dom.Event.add

      and now the shordcode field form is working.
      Now I can see if the rest of the work as it should. 😉

  4. Just installed this plugin and it seems like the shortcodes are not being generating on pages or posts for me =( (using a pagelines framework theme).
