Shopping Cart Plugin for WordPress

Hi,
I have a couple of affiliate sites set up with the affilorama theme on wordpress and I think it's great. I am looking at setting up another affilorama site but with a shopping cart to sell some physical products as well. Anyone know of any good wp plugin shopping carts that has an option for weight based shipping pricing? I found one that looked good called WP e-Commerce but I don't think it's compatible with affilorama. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Hi David,

There are some Wordpress carts listed in the plugin directory, but I haven't personally used any of those.

I have used 1ShoppingCart, eJunkie and Clickbank and all can be used with physical and digital products. I think 1SC has weight based shipping, but since I just have books I just do a flat fee, 2.95 for media mail and 4.95 for priority (USA) and never have any problems. Only time I run into an issue is with international because shipping varies so much by country.

osCommerce is another popular online shopping tool used by a lot of site, and is even available from a lot of web hosts as a one-click install.

There are also osCommerce plugins available for WordPress.

Thanks Sandra and Mark,
I'm having a look at ejunkie, it looks like they have recently upgraded their shipping options so it may be suitable. I'm in Australia and products of vastly different weights cost very different amounts to get across the country. I'm just looking to put Add to Cart buttons on some products on the Affilorama theme, I don't want to have to change to a theme that looks like a shop. Thanks for your help.
Cheers, David

David, I agree I have tried a lot of carts that make you change the entire site layout. I like the ones that just let you add a button to your existing site. Much easier!
