Shopping Cart plugin

We’ve released version of the WordPress Shopping Cart Plugin.

This is a major release that includes some new features, improvements and important bug fixes. See the detailed release notes for a list of changes made and then let’s have a look at some of the main feature highlights in this release.

New Feature Highlights

Some new features were added to the WordPress Shopping Cart

Product Brands


You will now be able to add brands and link products to a specific brand. You will be able to specify a brand name, add an image and description. A nice widget is also available to display your brands in the sidebar of your shop.

Realex Hosted Payment Page (HPP)


Realex Payments Hosted Payment Page (HPP) has been added to the WordPress Shopping Cart plugin and is built right into the core so no extension is needed. Hosted Payment Page is the successor of the previous Realex Payments ePage redirect. The predecessor still works but the new HPP is recommended. It also supports Realex recurring payments.

FastWay and Piraeus Extensions Added

We’ve added two new extension plugins for our WordPress Shopping Cart:

FastWay Courier API

FW Logo - Colour - Gradient (Pantone)

Using the FastWay courier API with the WordPress Shopping Cart, your shop can automatically calculate shipping rates for your customers as they checkout. Rates will be calculated based on origin, destination, weight and dimensions of the package. It is extremely easy to use and will ensure more accurate shipping prices.

Piraeus Payment Gateway


The Piraeus PayCenter Redirection payment gateway aka Winbank payment gateway allows Greek merchants with Piraeus merchant accounts to sell seamlessly online by processing credit cards, debit cards and other payment methods as needed.

Product Button/Price

A new shortcode is now available in this version of the plugin to only show the product price or product button.

So you can use [checkout_product display="price" id="123"] to show only a product price or [checkout_product display="button" id="123"] to only show a product button.

Important Fixes:

  • No user id’s on digital products of an order
  • Product image broken with special characters in title
  • Datepicker field not working on cart, shipping and billing steps
  • Variation options inventory not working
  • Phone number not showing up under invoice email
  • Zero priced tangible products problematic on shipping
  • and more
