WordPress shop…any suggestions?

I’ve created a ‘Shop’ page on my WordPress site and am looking into ways that people can ‘add to basket’ etc and pay ideally through Paypal. There are a couple of plugins that I have seen, but have no experience of. One of them is Cashie Commerce, which takes a 2.5% commission on sales and […]
