Hey all,

I want to implement a checkout feature on my blog to allow people to purchase my San Juan Island field guide with bitcoins. I've heard good things about Bitinstant and I also saw the Mt. Gox has a checkout API. Rather than going through my own trial-and-error I thought I'd solicit advice from the community.

Can you guys point me to a good place to learn about the pros and cons of existing merchant programs? I use Wordpress, so ideally, I'd love to install a plugin that can handle bitcoin transactions.

I also plan to sell several other things off my site, like fishing lures and electronics. My book is just the first thing for now.

The existing cart plugins are from MT.Gox, Walletbit and Bitpay. There's a few other download hosters like coindl too.

Escrow service is available on a case by case basis! (PM Me to verify I'm the escrow!)

I guess what I really meant to ask is: has anyone tried these different options? What worked best, in your experience?

Try BitPay at https://bitpay.com/bitcoin-shopping-cart-plugins
They have the most merchants using their API now.
