This is quite a significant move – and for us it is a game changer:

We looked at JigoCart (Thanks Andy) but we were disappointed at how light weight it is. It may be suitable for small shops that don’t need any advanced functionality but it is years away from being a contender in the retail space. People serious about E-Commerce will stick with WP e-Commerce or Shopp.

In a perfect world the WPEC team and Jigo team would collaborate, I’m disappointed that there are so many people recreating the wheel and doing a so so job at it.

I’m about to start on my first ecommerce site and had pretty much decided to use zencart. But this has me wondering if I would have more luck using these resources with wordpress instead since I’m already familiar with theming wordpress.

The first one listed, WordPress e-commerce was a total bust both times we tried it. Major errors in functionality that we couldn’t get around. We’ll have to look at some of these other ones from the list.
