The WP Express Checkout plugin is ideal to sell services and products online using PayPal and more.

Last Updated: July 21, 2021

Latest News: Updated the documentation.


This simple shopping cart plugin allows you to sell products or services in your site. Currently there are no addons, however as the plugin popularity grows the developers will include free and premium addons to help you further.

You can create a product in the plugin then use a simple shortcode to put “Buy Now” buttons anywhere on your site for a product or service. The checkout process is fast and simple. Check the following link to learn more https://wp-express-checkout.com/.
