In need of Wordpress shopping cart with some special requirements

I'm trying to figure out a solution to handling a contest with variable entry fee for a club I'm involved with using our existing wordpress site. Can you recommend a shopping cart plugin that will do what I need?

I'm in a club that has an annual contest for which we need to collect data about the entrant, collect data about which categories they want to enter, calculate an entry fee based on the number of entries in each category, allow people to pay via paypal, and collect all of this data in an easily-readable format (a google spreadsheet would be ideal).

I need to collect some additional data for each entrant beyond the usual data collected by a shopping cart, so I need to be able to add my own fields to the checkout screen.

Free or a relatively low one-time fee is much preferred. We're all volunteer but do have a little budget to work with.

Here's a sort of sample of the data I need:


Organizational affiliation
User-supplied 5 digit code (they just make this up)
Annual membership fee @ $y
3 entries in Category 1 @$x each
1 entry in Category 2 @$x each
4 entries in Category 5 @$x each
... entries in other categories ... @$x each
1 entry in Category 10 @$x each
0 or 1 entry in Category 11 (multiple entries not allowed) @$x

Pay via paypal
Collect all data in a google spreadsheet

What shopping cart plugin would you recommend for this?

You can do all that with WooCommerce. The only e-commerce for WP that I use.

Any shopping cart will do this.
