Using wordpress as a shop


I was told by a web developer that it is not a good idea to use wordpress as a shop…

I was just wondering what other people thought about this…


you can made the shop use zen- cart or OSCommerce.

I know there are plugins for it but I was looking for the disadvantages for it :slight_smile:


even me interested in knowing :smiley:

You can try to use Quickly Shop Plugin:

well wordpress is a Content Management platform, which means it is for content.
so wordpress is only good for adding content, not for shopings

I haven’t used the cart plugin, but it seems like it would be like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. Lots of good cart options out there. You might look into magento.

I have decided on foxycart :slight_smile:

Looks pretty good
