The story behind ScottCart

Hi, my name is Scott Paterson and I am the creator and programmer behind ScottCart. For 5+ years I have sold physical, digital, service and referral products online. I have used the most popular eCommerce plugins for WorPress to manage my business on a daily basis and I got to sees first hand many problems and obstacles. That's why I decided to build my own eCommerce plugin based on the features I needed. I now use ScottCart to sell my own products on my own sites.

By far the biggest pain point I experienced was making an eCommerce plugin look good and have the features that I needed right out of the box. When setting up a new site I would spend weeks coding to make it look good. This was annoying and time consuming. When I built ScottCart I built it to work and look great right away with no custom coding required. Using ScottCart you can go from install to a good looking and functional sites in just a few minutes.
