Which shopping cart/payment plug-in works well with paypal?
There doesn't seem to be a clear favorite...

for the low volume stuff I'm doing now, I use E-Junkie.  Works great, and is dirt cheap.

I had a couple of higher volume products a year or two ago that I was selling via 1ShoppingCart, and I like them too.

But honestly, I'll probably use E-Junkie for most of my stuff unless I need something higher powered.

The first question I guess is do you really need a full fledged shopping cart?  Unless you've got lots of little items, you may not.

I've got one main product, so I use simple "Buy Now" and "Subscribe Now" buttons - PayPal generates the code, just copy & paste into your page.

I've been looking into a few wordpress hacks for shops since all the stuff like oCart and zencart make full site installations rather than being to embed them in my site (at least by default).

This tutorial looks pretty good. http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/wordpress-simple-paypal-shopping-cart-plugin-768

If you guys have any better plugins please let me know because this is kind of stitched together.  I'd rather have a cleaner option.

EDIT: I just found they have a better premium plugin.  Haven't tried it yet.

I use Mal's E-commerce- https://www.mals-e.com/index.php. It's free up to a certain sales volume (which encourages start-up businesses), excellent customer support (the owner replied to my question within a couple hours), works very well with Paypal, and only takes a little bit of html knowledge to set-up.

Hope that helps.
