    Wordpress shopping carts? Hosted Payment? Any suggestions

    I need to add a fairly simple ecommerce solution to a clients wordpress site. I've tried a few of the joomla offerings but never any for wordpress.

    The key really is I need to be able to send payments through to either a hosted payments page or use the Clydesdale bank API.

    Any one got any wise words for me?

    Wordpress is a CMS, I would not use it for ecommerce solution. Try osCommerce or opencart and simple and straight to the work done solution

    I think it is better to use shopping cart with built-in CMS system.

    What do you mean by simple ecommerce? Do you want to sell a few products, a membership, consulting service, etc? I can make a more specific recommendation if I knew a bit more details.

    I'll say that personally I have enjoyed using Wufoo for some simple ecommerce needs - just sync it into Paypal or Chargify and you can create a simple sales form. You may want to consider something like that. Gravity forms also has a paypal integration, but a bit simpler.

    There are probably 40 products in total. No subscriptions, membership or anything like that.

    I'd love to just use paypal as a payment solution but the client needs to use TransAccept the clydesdale bank system. They offer hosted payment pages, so if there is anything that would intergrate neatly with that it'd be a bonus.

    I've looked at the payment gateways of all of WordPress shopping carts and I haven't seen one that supports TransAccept/Clydesdale. You'll most likely have to convince your client to use another payment processor or build the integration yourself.

    Shopp plugin offers the most options when it comes to payment gateways. If you wanna build the integration yourself, I'd recommend you also look into MarketPress and Cart66. The code of these two is well documented and has good API, which makes them extensible.
