    I want to set up an ecommerce site with Wordpress, what do you recommend as the best shopping theme / cart to use from experience?
    Want to use PAYPAL or Google Checkout to start with for payments.

    How is it buggy? I'm looking at that plugin for a client and I haven't found anything online about it being terribly buggy...

    edit: the above link refers to eStore, no WP-Ecommerce...which one are you referring to?

    The Low Country of course
    I have a e-commerce site on WP. I started using WP e-commerce as my cart 7 months ago. It was the worst experience of my life. The support is non-existant and the cart crashed. I had to re-build the entire thing. I am now using Shopp which I am very happy with. I also looked at Cart66 which gets a ton of good reviews. There is a Wordpress group on LinkedIn that has a thread going on what the best WP shopping cart plugin is. Might be helpful to take a look in that there are people who are much more well versed than I in this area commenting. Long story short WP e-commerce did not have many nice things said about it over there. This is just my experience, so take it for what it's worth. I just wanted to save someone the headaches that I went through.
