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. Hi,

    I am looking for a wordpress checkout which will allow visitors of the website to enter a price they choose to pay.

    For example, I am providing a service for them. They will know via phonecall contact how much they have to pay me. I would like them to be able to go to the website, enter the price we agreed and then hit pay.

    Does anyone know of a plugin that is suitable for this?

    I hope and look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Hi there, firstly thanks for a great plugin. I am playing around with adding some products to my site. I’m just testing the checkout and for some reason the Address section of the checkout is not allowing any entry. My site is http://www.keepthemamused.co.uk, product is in “Adults” page and checkout in “Basket” page.

    I’m not sure if it’s something my end, but I looked at the sample on this site and it appears to be the same. Could it be my browser?

    Thanks for your help.

      1. Thanks for the quick reply. I know it’s cheeky, but is there a way of omitting the address fields and changing “I will use Paypal address” to something like “I confirm my purchase will be delivered to the registered Paypal address”.

      2. Hi, How’s the update coming along? This is a lovely simple checkout plugin apart from that little bug. Can anyone suggest a fix?

    1. I fixed the bug myself and I changed this in a file called wpchkt.js under templates/default

      function switch_address(){


      $(“table.AddressEntryTable :input”).attr(“disabled”, true);
      $(“table.AddressEntryTable .label”).css(“color”,”gray”);

      } else {

      $(“table.AddressEntryTable :input”).removeAttr(‘disabled’);
      var inicial_color = $(“table.entryTable”).css(“color”);
      $(“table.AddressEntryTable .label”).css(“color”,inicial_color);


  3. Hi

    Great plugin, I’ve recently developed a problem where it wont re-direct to Paypal to complete transaction! Obviously without that it makes the whole process useless.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Ethan
