WordPress Simple PayPal 1
With over fifty-eight million blogs, WordPress is the single most widespread blogging platform in the world. What most people don't realize is that WordPress can be used for much more than just blogging. Many small businesses have taken advantage of the open source platform to make it a means to sell both product and services. Though that might seem like a challenge, it's not. With the right plugins, you can extend WordPress in such a way as to transform this blogging platform into a selling platform.
How? Let's take a look at five plugins to help you monetize WordPress.
1. WordPress Simple PayPal Shopping Cart
WordPress Simple PayPal Shopping Cart allows you to add "Add to cart" buttons to any product, post, or page. This plugin integrates with the NexGen Photo Gallery plugin (easily sell digital photographs from your site) as well as the PayPal Sandbox plugin (for testing purposes). Options available include: Price and shipping options; dynamic "add to cart" button; lightweight; multi-currency support; and more.

Great article... Talking about paypal, I actually use paypal merchant account services (pro version) and I highly recommend it to anybody selling ebooks etc... It takes credit cards like any other merchant account without the need of buyer having a paypal account... Secondly, the buyer doesn't have to leave the site for the check-out process (pro version). I also use "all in one SEO pack" plug-in for some of the blogs i want to earn money online or other similar topics... this particular page has a life-changing effect by the way. Keep up the great work my friend... adding value to others who need it... Ozgue
