Please note that this comparison only looks at the features on paper as reported by either plugin’s developers. It does not and can not tell you if or how well a certain feature will work for you.

Even if many of the features compared above overlap between the two competing products there is one very important difference: WP eCommerce as well as Jigoshop both provide a unique interface from which you will build an awesome online store. Since it is hard to rate the quality of such an interface objectively I recommend that you try both products yourself before deciding for one.

WP eCommerce vs Jigoshop Price Comparison

WPscoop indexes the exact prixing plans of all compared plugins. Please refer to the table below for a quick overview of the prices of WP eCommerce and Jigoshop.

To find the cheaper eCommerce plugin for your individual needs please go to my main comparison article. There you can search for the features you need and then see the exact price you would need to pay for WP eCommerce or Jigoshop (as well as other alternatives).

Price WP eCommerce Jigoshop
Minimum (1 Site) 0.00 USD 0.00 USD
Maximum (1 Site) 627.00 USD 1067.00 USD
Minimum (10 Sites) 0.00 USD 0.00 USD
Maximum (10 Sites) 1108.00 USD 3177.00 USD

Explanations: The minimum price compared above is the lowest price a product is available for, e.g. the version with the least features. The maximum price listed is for a version of the product that includes all features. For plugins that charge per addon it factors in the cost of all available addons. For some products the price increases if you want to use it on more than 1 WordPress site – the listed price for 10 sites shows if that is the case.

Disclaimer: While we update this comparison regularly we can not guarantee the prices displayed above are still correct and take no responsibility if they changed.
