Hi I am in the process of creating a website for an importer who wants to showcase his products. There are over 1,500 products and they also need to be categorised by brand.
At this point for this client I only need to display a catalogue with no options for actual purchasing, but he wants to be able to switch on the purchasing part in the near future if required. So that is my main reason for wanting to build this right now with an ecommerce plugin, rather than going for custom post types.
I've indentified the following plugins that seem to be the leading ones at the moment:
- WP ECommerce
Given my requirements any tips for which one of these four would be ideal for me? I don't mind paying for a plugin.
Edit: I am considering things like user-friendliness, ability to use the plugin as a plain catalogue rather than an e-commerce system (switching off price display and carts), support for the plugin, documentation etc. I understand that maybe the 4 of them can be used successfully in my case, I was just looking for the opinion of people who have used more than one of the above, and can thus take a general view and say whether they liked one more than the other.
