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.

  1. Hi,

    I’ve installed your plugin and configured it.

    When I try to create a product in the editor wirth de shortcode button, the pop-up screen in the editor is empty!

    And a second question: Where do I set the default shipping rate?


  2. We are building a web site for multiple Authors that also includes this plugin. Is there any way to stop the checkout icon appearing in the MCE toolbar for everyone except Editors and Admins?

    Other than that, this plugin is great!

  3. Hi, great job with the plugin. Its very simple and basically it’s just what i’ve been looking for. I still have one issue though. Is there any way that I can change those predefined currencies? Or make another one that would suit the currency used in my country?

    Many thanks and best regards,

  4. Hello. I am having trouble with this plugin and WP 3.01

    Seems even when you set the Checkout/Process Page Url in the settings it comes up with errors when clicking on the Buy button that say: “ERROR: Include the Checkout/Process Page Url on the Plugin Settings” and the page is all white…plus when you click update it says: “There are no items in your cart”. And the sidebar widget is not working either.

    Worked great in version 2.84.

  5. Great plugin, well done! Did you manage to convert the Zip-code field so that it can accept UK Post codes? If it is a quick code change please post it up here or email it and I’ll edit it myself. Kind Regards.
