    Yeah, I have also been using shopping-cart plug-ins from wordpress’s official website and found them healthy enough as compared to the others. In my opinion, this option is more reliable and easy to operate.

    I really like the ecwid ecommerce plugin for wordpress, although I am now trying to encourage a client to move his site from BigCommerce to Virtuemart and Joomla.

    Depends on what you want. Am surprised you want your site to look like Ebay. Depending on where you are in the world I might be tempted to have my shop based in the etsy marketplace. I love that site and concept. Wish I had thought of it!

    Having just finished designing an ecommerce store in Joomla I would say that if your site is halfway complex you are better off using Joomla or Drupal over Wordpress for a shopping site.

    I used the Shopp plugin for a website that I designed awhile back. I'd recommend it. Shopping carts are not my thing, and this was easy to implement and I feel professional looking. Not sure if it's okay to leave the link to the site I used it for here... but I bet they have some type of gallery of sites using it showcased on their website.

    I'm not sure I would use a plugin to do your e-commerce shopping cart as there are plenty of free options out there that will work better.

    I would suggest checking out Magento (magentocommerce.com) for an easy to setup free solution that is VERY stylish out of the box. Heres a Cart Selection Guide that should help as well (my company works with a lot of these cart solutions)


    Let us know if theres anything else we can do to help.

    There are many number of shopping cart in the market.You can use Magento,its a very good shopping cart for any online business.Its very user friendly.
    By yourself you can do the necessary changes.You can also use virtue mart for developing website.
