MiniCart WordPress Plugin: Shopping Cart for WordPress

Wordpress Shopping Cart

MiniCart will implement a mini-shopping-cart in your blog. You can add items from the admin side and embed the cart into posts. This can also be used as a donation plugin. By design, you can only show one item in a cart.

If you like this plugin, consider making a donation…

[MINICART donate “Mini Cart Plugin”]

The above donate form is created using the MiniCart plugin. To see an actual cart in action, got the MiniCart Demo page.
