I want to create a website for my T-Shirt business. I've tried osCommerce and it's ok for a basic setup but even something simple as installing an addon for SEO turns into a nightmare of database editing and modifying php files.

I've used WordPress before and it's an absolute dream to setup and customise.

Here are the requirements that my shop would need:

  1. Multiple attibutes - e.g. customer should be able to choose things like size, color, garment type etc. Also I need the option of an attibute to be able to change the price. E.g. If I have a base price of $11.99 and the cutomer selects "Kids small" for size then I want to deduct $3 from the base price.

  2. Display multiple pictures depending on what I choose. E.g. if I choose a woman's tee from the garment type then the picture should update to display the design on a woman's tee.

  3. Bulk import/export - I need to be able to mass import or export products, attributes etc. via something like CSV or Excel.

  4. Reporting tools would be nice, so I can see my shops performance at a glance.

I know there are several eCommmerce plugins out there but do any of them do the things I've listed above?

Many thanks in advance.

Woo (the makers of WooThemes) announced their integration with shopify recently, from the looks of it... http://themes.shopify.com/themes/air/styles/air would do what you want..

I would look into hosting the shop at Shopify, and seeing if your base website can be wordpress. Woo has announced that they're working on a e-commerce framework as well, but until that gets released, this may work for you?

Use WP e-Commerce Plugin from GetShopped.org and if it doesnt do exactly what you want straight away then you can commission somebody to do the rest.

Woo are making a Plugin but its going to be years behind (in terms of features) compared to WP e-Commerce, Shopp, Yak etc...

I've used WP e-Commerce to great success. It's very expandable, the presentation layer is easy to customize. It handles most basic features out of the box. You may have to use a DIY option for csv import/export.

I like the plugin Shopp, great ressource and you create custom shops in custom design. Also you have hooks for hook inside the shopp for custom functions: http://shopplugin.net/
