Shopping cart solution for physical goods without a subscription fee?
January 3, 2015 2:18 PM   Subscribe

I'm a clothing reseller and would like to branch out from eBay to my own e-commerce site. I don't currently have the sales volume to justify a monthly subscription fee to a service like Shopify ($30/month). I do have a domain name, access to cheap webhosting with Wordpress and other CMS platforms, and a decent amount of tech knowledge. What are some free or very cheap solutions in 2015 for hosting a shopping cart on my own site and accepting credit card payments with per-transaction fees, preferably with a minimal amount of coding and fuss?

Stripe? There are various plugin integrations for WP, some standalone, some part of broader cart packages.

Yeah, Stripe is the first thing that came to mind.

Paypal has a point and click store builder. then you just cut and paste the code in Wordpress. Would be a PITA to maintain if you have a lot of products, but for a dozen or two it wouldn't be too bad.

Best answer: There are a lot of Wordpress ecommerce plugins. WooCommerce is very popular and has a good community.

Magento with a good responsive theme. Might have to pay for the better themes- there are some free ones, but the nicest seemed to be commercial.

Best answer: Square Register offers an online storefront.
