GetShopped Ecommerce Plugin for Wordpress

Hi,

I'm playing around with different eCommerce plugins for Wordpress with a view to finding one that will become my default for future wordpress / ecommerce projects.

I've found, and really like, the WP e-Commerce plugin from GetShopped. However, I've one big stumbling block that I can't seem to resolve.

Has anyone any experience of this plugin? Specifically, has anyone managed to change the default URL from /products-page/ to something else, like /shop/ or /store/ ?

I did try by renaming a few things, but things broke. I also looked up the documentation which suggests related functionality was removed from the admin in the latest release, which seems strange.

Anyone managed this recently?

I cannot speak to that plugin specifically though I was on the same hunt several months ago. How big are the stores you're building?

There not huge to be honest. A mixture of a few products - tens of products for now, but I've a few potential projects of over 100 products and more starting early next year that I'd prefer to be putting on Wordpress.

So in that sense I'm not biased towards GetShopped. I've briefly looked at others such as Cart66 and Shopp - but quite liked most other things about GetShopped, so if I could get over the URL I'd be happy to really test it further.

Do you have recommendations to others that you could use? Again, I'm not biased and still have time to play around with them before it becomes urgent.

One problem with getshopped is that their support is absolutely terrible (including their user guides.

I've also found that the plugin doesn't play real nice with some of the more advanced plugins. I have 5 sites with wp-ecommerce and all 5 act differently - even when I attempt to set them up exactly the same.

I'm currently looking for an alternative. Has anyone used the new oscommerce wp plugin with good results?

Personally I avoid anything to do with osCommerce.

For quick and easy setup I've been using FoxyPress/FoxyCart. The cart portion is a service you pay for monthly but takes the PCI compliance and security upgrades off your hands and makes life so much easier - IMHO of course.
