iThemes Exchange: the New Kid on the WordPress E-Commerce Block

697 views

Published on

A review of the Exchange e-commerce plugin for WordPress by iThemes, presented at the East Bay WordPress Meetup in March 2014. Pros: ease of use. Cons: no product variants. (That has since been fixed.) Recommendations: keep an eye on it, it may give WooCommerce some competitions. Probably a good product for beginners and those with simple stores.
