This is my first question in this forum, though I have to say that I tried several times to add a reply to the thread below and was logged out every time??
It is the most relevant thread I have found.
I have a problem in that my Paypal is an account based in Spain, and thus shows up at the beginning in Spanish which confuses my target market who are all English speaking women, and seems to scare them off. Plus I am selling a membership which means they have to open a PayPal account which seems to be yet another hurdle.
So we have checked with 2Checkout, however they will not take the recurring payment model that we have – Sale of book including Membership –
Authorize.net seems not to accept non US accounts.
All of the above brought us to getting a merchant account, which it seems will soon be live.
That then brings me to the next question…
Is there a shopping cart that you would recommend that integrates well and easily with the E-Store and Affiliate plugins? as well as with aWeber, which are now all installed and setup.
Or do you recommend we search for another affiliate solution?
Below copied from another Thread
On one project we cannot use paypal so we want to better understand Manual Integration of shopping carts
Our Merchant Account integrates with a wide variety of shopping carts including OS-commerce and Zen cart
Can those carts, for example integrate with both the estore and affiliate plugins?
We want to continue using your affiliate system…
What are the downsides if we are not using PayPal
Any tips for us?

OS-commerce or Zen cart are very heavy weight and comparatively complex solutions that we are not a big fan of using on WordPress blogs. Those are shopping cart solutions, so I do not see why you would need to integrate them with WP eStore since they will be able to take care of the full shopping cart side of things.
WP eStore also has 2Checkout and Authorize.net gateway integration besides PayPal. So those can be your alternative to PayPal if you really want to stick to WP eStore for this project.

I’ve used Zen Cart in the past and it is very cumbersome (and I’ve been in web development for 10 years). For the consumer, there are simply too many clicks they have to go through before they finally pay for their product.
The less clicks the better. We’ve switch our site to WP e-Store / Affiliate and are doing the same for our clients, too. It’s simple to launch and simple for the consumer.. one or two clicks and they’re at payment.

WP eStore can be integration with iDev affiliate or JRox jam affiliate softwares. WP eStore itself is a shopping cart so not sure why you would integrate it with another shopping cart. You simply determine which sopping cart solution suits best for your project and go with that one.May 17, 2011 at 10:30 am #32553
Thanks Amin for your answer,
So now my questions are the following…
Using WP eStore together with WP Affiliate, can I easily integrate another payment solution/merchant account other than PayPal and have everything work correctly… including client being automatically added to aWeber autoresponder?
Is there a way to ‘force’ the Paypal page to always come up in English.
In an Enlish version of FireFox it came up in English.
In English versions of Safari and Explorer it comes up in Spanish.
We need it to ALWAYS come in English.

Update Check the following post for forcing the language of the PayPal page:
Yes you should be able to force PayPal to show the English version. Since you are using a subscription button do the the following tweak:
Open the “eStore_misc_functions.php” file and look for the following line of code:
$output .= '<input type="hidden" name="cbt" value="'.$returnButtonText.'" />';
Once you find it add the following line just below the above line:
$output .= '<input type="hidden" name="lc" value="US" />';
There will be two occurrences (so do the same change for both). That should do the trick.May 30, 2011 at 10:23 am #32556
I appreciate that…May 30, 2011 at 5:18 pm #32557
That worked for the Subscribe Button.
Now can you please tell me what code I need to adjust to get simple Buy Now buttons to also go to a page in English and not in Spanish.
Also Can I substitute the Subscribe Button for an image?
If so, how?
Also can I change the text on the Subscribe Button?
If so, how?

The same modification I explained earlier is applicable to the “Buy Now” button.
Yes you can use a custom image as your “subscribe” button – https://support.tipsandtricks-hq.com/forums/topic/can-i-use-an-image-for-a-subscribe-buttonDecember 29, 2011 at 8:39 pm #32559serhatugurMember
