Special WordPress Hosting offer for WPBeginner Readers – Secured WordPress eCommerce Solution Coming Soon

WordPress and eCommerce is still a pretty difficult combination. Although plugins like GetShopped, and themes like Templatic have tried to offer solutions, there is no such thing for real beginners that offers a one-in-all solution.

As you know that we were attending Blog World Expo this past weekend. There we found out about this amazing concept that our friends over at are planning. This new site is called is a WordPress eCommerce solution powered by that will take the hassle out of setting up and maintaining an eCommerce enabled website. Think easy like Shopify with the awesome content management power of WordPress in a secured package. Finally WordPress + eCommerce made easy.


  • is owned and operated by PHPurchase.
  • is powered by so all client packages come with the same easy setup, automatic core and plugin upgrades, backups, and bulletproof security customers know and love.
  • PHPurchase’s easy and powerful GPL ecommerce plugin will be pre-configured and installed on each site at the time of creation. From sign-up to selling product in about 2 minutes.
  • Talks are happening with the talented team at Press75 to provide a set of default eCommerce ready themes.
  • There will be 3 plans available from $40/mo – $65/mo
  • Paypal and Google Checkout will be default payment options
  • Dedicated IP Address and SSL will be available for using a credit card gateway (
  • Service will launch in approx. 4 weeks

We will keep you guys within the loop as this product launches. While everything looks great within this ecommerce solution, we are curious to see what type of affiliate program options they will offer. Many of us already know that affiliate programs are becoming crucial in making good number of sales. A feature that allows integration with Clickbank, E-Junkie, or even a custom affiliate program module would be something that we want to see in this product.

Would you use this solution when they come out?

    what happened to wpstores?

  2. Ed Nichter says:

    I agree with Matt. Just beginning to try to install WP e-Commerce on my site, but to me this is the all in one plugin and its free.

  3. Matt Metzger says:

    I’m sure this is going to be great, but very surprised at the statement “there is no such thing for real beginners that offers a one-in-all solution.”

    The “WP e-Commerce” plugin (really much more than just a plugin) is a pretty elegant, one-shot deal that turns a WordPress install into a fully featured eCommerce shop. It’s actually a very popular solution for making a WP store. (their site claims over 750,000 downloads, and I’ve seen them on multiple reviews/lists for WP eCommerce solutions)

    *disclaimer* I have absolutely nothing to do with making or distributing this plugin. I simply tried it out once and it was pretty nice.

    “there is no such thing for real beginners that offers a one-in-all solution.”

    Do you guys mean one in all solution means providing web hosting + WordPress (free) + Plugin (costs) + Bunch of themes. And then charging them monthly? :)

    No offense. Simply I am against this kind of false hypes.

    • Editorial Staff says:

      Yes that is exactly what we mean in terms of one-in-all solution. The plugin is setup and ready for you to go. You have themes for the plugin that are merely a matter of clicking activate. They host your shop and it is a ready made solution. While Templatic has great solutions, it still requires the beginner to manage it.

      We are not saying that Templatic is not a great product. Only suggesting that this solution is more feasable to beginners. Ofcourse advanced users would prefer WP-ecommerce plugin or Templatic themes to have access to code and database. There are pros and cons on both sides.

      • R.Bhavesh says:

        Self hosted solution? Look at Big Cartel or Shopify. If the user wants the thing only in wordpress, wp ecommerce plugin already did that a year back ( ) and then discontinued it. Like I said in my first comment, I am simply against getting compared to a product which is not yet in the market.

        I love how WP Beginner brings WordPress news to the market. But misusing the same to create (sponsored?) hype is something, I don’t feel at ease.

        • Editorial Staff says:

          First of all, let it be clear that this post is not SPONSORED. Furthermore, we apologize if you feel that we degraded your product. By no means that was the intention, but our position is very clear in this article. WPStores from what it sounds like is the one-in-all solution for WordPress beginners. We have not yet seen the product therefore we will keep this updated as more news come out.

    The only problem with PHPPurchase is they don’t provide themes :-(

    • Editorial Staff says:

      That is why Josh and the team is working out a deal with Press75 to provide themes for PHPurchase.

  6. Adam W. Warner says:

    Thanks for reporting this, it sounds like a nice eCommerce solution not only for the end user, but for consultants and developers as well.

  7. david says:

    Having scoured the web for shopping cart solutions I was just about to make a new ecom site with WordPress Shopp It will be good to hear more about this alternative new offering and how its features compare.

  8. John Saddington says:

    now that would be cool.
