Thread: WP Plug In Suggestion for online store pages

  1. #1

    Default WP Plug In Suggestion for online store pages

    I'm going to add a store section to my next site, with images and small write ups. All will be affiliate links, so no need for a shopping cart.

    Is there a plug in or some other easy way to set these pages up so that each product gets its own little box, like 3 across and 3 down, or whatever? Then all I have to do is drop the images and descriptions in each box, right?

    The best thing to use is a shopping cart plugin, as you can link a product to wherever you want, such as linking to your affiliate links.

    I recommend trying the Wp-ecommerce plugin. Use the off-site product link option & enter your affiliate link in that field.

    now that sounds like a girl after my own heart!

    re: popshops - I've read a little about it. a couple of questions?

    1. Only some merchants use it, correct?

    2. can you select just some of the merchants products, or must you put all of them on your site? If you can select, how much of a pain is this?

    3. cost to use popshops?

    Thanks.

    Hi Jeanette! I have no idea whether this will be helpful, but my case study in the elite forum under "Case Studies" and then "Blog a Month Club" details the plug ins recommended by the Blog a Month people for setting up my wordpress ecommerce type of sites. I have not purchased any of the recommended plug ins yet (but I will), so the site I mention with a link in the current forum posts has been created without any of those plug ins yet. You may want to take a look. I have personally never created a site, so I can't really comment on their ease of use, but the case study may give you some ideas.

    LOL Pam. Ive got another more recent post flparing around asking for a tutorial source or to pay somebody to show me how to use the ecommerce free plug in.

    Let's say it's not gone entirely smoothly. I suspect that's due to my lack of knowledge more than the plug in.

    Re Popshops questions:

    Popshops has thousands of products. All of Commission Junction, Linkshare, Amazon, and a couple of independent ones.

    You start by researching a keyword and the program shows you which merchants have products and an image of each. You then click the image to add it to your shop. From there, you can change the layout, add to the description, etc. When you're satisfied, you click a button and the html code is produced for you to copy and paste. Like I said, it is easy, easy.

    Cost is free for I think up to 8 shops, then a small monthly charge that increases depending how many shops you have. I'm still not sure what a shop is, but I have a free account and managed to add 12 products - what I think is a shop - to one of my sites and another set of 12 to a different site. If I'm right, that means I could do that to 6 more pages. If you want to see the first one I did, it's at Souvenirs
