Powerful e-commerce performance on your WordPress store

If you are using WordPress to build your web store, you will need a good plugin for e-commerce functionality. Shopp is built specifically for WordPress users and is packed with powerful features to give you the best advantage. Shopp includes your standard cart features, such as promo codes and variable adjustments for pricing and products, but goes much further with features like SEO, JavaScript, and security functionality. High-risk merchants like FFL dealers, vape and e-juice sites, and premium cigar sellers could all potentially benefit from Shopp.

Using Shopp as the foundation of your high-risk product line will help you sell faster and sell safer. One of Shopp for WordPress’s best features for busy, small package, high-risk sites like vape and cigar sales is the real-time shipping rate add-on. This add-on allows you to get shipping quotes on current rates for local, national, and international shipping from services like UPS, FedEx, USPS, Canada Post, Australia Post and Shipwire. Shopp also includes many security features; one of them is a daily scan for vulnerabilities by McAfee Secure, which is a top of the line software security company. Shopp designed their software with credit card processing and high-risk friendly payment gateways in mind. It’s PCI-DSS functionality and compliance components are carefully engineered and built in, meaning your transactions will go through with some of the highest security standards on the market.

You can add special user roles on the back end to allow for customer service representatives who won’t have access to your financials but will have access to your customer’s transactions, allowing you to outsource your customer service, or hire someone for that role without giving them sensitive information about your business finances. Additionally, you can choose where to store your business info. Shopp can store some data in the built-in database, but you can also choose to store the files on your own server or locally on your devices hard drive.

Important: You should not be storing cardholder data anywhere but on regularly scanned, and fully PCI validated systems, so feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions on PCI compliant gateways and cloud storage.
