    It's not that it costs money..it costs a LOT of money that they never tell you though the entire process you will have to pony up, I had to find out the hard way..and then when checking out the a-holes tack on another additional charge cuz they are foreigners and not Americans. Some VAT charge...say what??
    Sounds like you need to do more homework. VAT has nothing to do with Woo or Authorize.net. That's about the country where you live or are doing business in. You seem to be applying your anger at the wrong people for the wrong things.

    You want the Authorize.net plug in, go pay the $78. Done. Over. You own it.

    VAT is something completely different and unrelated to Woo Commerce or WordPress or America. In the U.S. there is no VAT.

    I manage a couple of websites that use the Authorize.net plug in. We paid the $78, installed it on an SSL, set it up, . Done.

    Are you buying the plug in through a 3rd party?
    Are you in the U.S.?

    Actually it's 90/year with the VAT thing because they are not an American company...sadly, they are based in South Africa...so they want to charge me 11+ dollars extra for that...so 90 something a year...to fill in 3 lines of data (keys)... Hmm...pass.

    Question: Does anyone know of any shopping carts made in the U.S. by Americans?

    I'm confused. I thought you were talking about the Authorize.net plug in for Woo Commerce, but now it seems this entire time you've been talking about a completely different company who is selling you Authorize.net services.

    Authorize.net, Woo and WordPress are all U.S. companies. Why can't you just deal with them or buy their products directly from the website?

    What country are you in?

    woo is based in south Africa, look it up..they are not an American company. I'm not talking about payment processors... I think you are confusing shopping carts with payment processors....

    I just want a shopping cart that is made in the US by americans and I'm good, thank you.

    Automatic purchased Woo back in 2015. Yeah, I'm confused. You're talking about Woo and Authorize.net and then telling me you're not talking about a payment processors, you're talking about shopping carts.

    Authorize.net is a payment processor.
    Woo was an independent company who made WordPress themes, plug ins and Woo Commerce. Woo (ALL OF IT) is now owned by Automatic an American software company headquartered on San Francisco,CA run by Matt Mullenweg (Founder, CEO, president)

    You are correct. I'm completely confused. I have no idea what you're talking about or what one has to do with the other, and why you're now saying one has nothing to do with the other, or if we're even talking about a website, or WordPress.com or self hosted WordPress or where you are and why VAT has anything to do with it, and why S. Africa has anything to do with ANY of it.


    Maybe someone else can decipher what's going on and can help.
    Sorry.

    Welcome to small business. You're going to get nickle and dimed over everything. If you're offended and angry over $90 a year, I'll trade you that $90 for the floating exchange rate that I'm paying.

    Worst case, the company you're dealing with is a spoof of the real sites/plugins.

    I haven't read the whole thread, but can you switch to Stripe? I use woocommerce + stripe for one of my personal sites. I do pay fees for the processor, but I avoided paying anything for any of my plugins.
