    Hello mate, the title explains it all. Is there maybe a theme or a plugin that does this? Spent the last hour searching and searching for free ways, without any luck. :(

    not a good idea, all those plugins suck. Better use something specialized, like prestashop.

    Simple: Either Woocommerce, or WPSC (WP shopping cart). takes 30 minutes to setup.

    I was thinking of a service shop which is like wufoo, with custom forms and so on, are those plugins good for them?

    Haven't used it but they have hell lot of features to choose from. You can combine them with premium themes e.g. elegant themes. Customize it a littlebit and you have it.

    Choose a theme from ThemeForest that allows integration with woocommerce.

    I have set-up sites both with wp-ecommerce, woocommerce and Jigoshop, all are pretty easy to use and great for small shops with not so big inventories. All of them have a similar way of adding product info, set-up and checkout. Also, if I'm not mistaken, wp-ecommerce has an option to disable the shopping cart from the admin area. For the templates - go for themeforest, amazing stuff. Most of the ecommerce templates there have an option to show latest product slideshow on the home page and lots of nice features. I also have experience working with old oscommerce, prestashop and magento and I can say that if you are a wp-lover, have a small inventory and don't need superfeatures- go for wordpress, it's much more easier to set-up.

    Ready! Shopping Cart is also an alright plugin for stores.
    I think they even have an option for affiliate products so the Buy Now button takes you to your affiliate link landing page instead of your shopping cart.

    Woo Commerce is great but them extras are kinda pricey if you go premium.
    Both WooCommerce and Ready! Shopping Cart have lots of addons for shipping and payment gateways for a more functional and robust site.

    WPMU-DEV have a plugin called Marketpress it's pretty cool and very functional once you grab a bunch of other WPMU-DEV plugins.

    All of these plugins integrate with PayPal off the shelf.

    I reckon Magento is a much simpler e-commerce solution than a WP store but there's just so much to do manually...
