    I want to start selling services through wordpress and I was wondering how could I add a cart to my website? I want it to look like this:
    Product > Checkout > Paypal > Redirect to a page where buyer posts details.
    are there any good themes/plugins that can make the above^ happen?
    I already have an eleganthemes subscription so if anyone knows a good theme there please tell me :) allthough any theme/plugin will do...paid/free. preferbly free.

    Thanks!

    Are you using self hosted wordpress or the free wordpress one with the dashboard? Anyway if you want to make money from products, I recommend you go to Paypal and click on the 'Merchant services' option. Once you go there, choose your button, it could be a 'Buy now' or 'Add to cart.' It depends on how much products you are willing to sell. On Wordpress, promote your product whether it is an e-book or whatever. Once you made the product, make a thank you page where it syas thank you for purchasing the product.

    Once you made that, go back on Paypal and customize the Buy now button. Paste the link for the ebook on it so once you click buy now, it should have a built in checkout page where you enter details and then it gives you the link to collect or download the product.

    I'm using Wordpress right now and I'm promoting other peoples product so I can make commissions off it. If you want to know how to do that, PM me
