Screenshots: Five free e-commerce plugins for WordPress

Introduction

WordPress is one of the most widely used blogging platforms on the planet. It’s also widespread in its use for non-blogging sites. Why? Because it is as extendable as it is user friendly. And since WordPress has a large community of developers, it should be no surprise that you’ll find an add-on for just about everything... including e-commerce.

That’s right, with the help of a few plugins, you can monetize that WordPress installation with ease. Even better, WordPress offers quite a variety of e-commerce plugins. But out of the long list, which should you consider? I’ve got my top five right here for you. Maybe one will perfectly fit your needs.
