Default Wordpress plugin to pull in XCart products into WP Posts

We're considering moving a client from a WP based shopping cart into a full fledged Xcart solution, and are demoing the product. One of the requirements is that the WP bloggers can add buy buttons inside the WP posts for items they are producing. I've made a beta WP plugin that does this, and are looking for 2-3 Xcart users who also use Wordpress to test it out. I may sell this as a WP plugin for a small amount of money after the kinks are worked out, but the testers would get a free version at that point. Here's what I've got so far:

It's all shortcode based, so putting [xcart id="<SKU>"] pulls in the product. There's a button in the WP editor that allows you to skip the manually hunting for the SKU#:

Bringing up this popup screen:

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/320299/screencast/2011-06-03_1437.png

which then inserts the correct SKU into the shortcode:

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/320299/screencast/2011-06-03_1438.png

This is the primary admin screen:

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/320299/screencast/2011-06-03_1422.png

and here's the default output on the WP post:

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/320299/screencast/2011-06-03_1440.png

(the plugin has a css file so this is completely adjustable to your tastes, and you can see in the admin you can control all the HTML too).

So, if you are running XCart and Wordpress, and would be willing to tell me what you think, what works, what doesn't, I'd love your help. Send me a message, and I'll get you a zipfile to test.

Thanks,

Michael

Thanks! After we have a couple beta users, I'm very keen to do this. I particularly want people to try it on a variety of platforms (With SEO URL's enabled and without, for instance) before going live. Anyone interested in testing the code out?

I would be interested in testing it out.

My WordPress is on a different URL than my X-Cart. Will this be an issue?

Is there a place to download or beta this for you? Or is it for sale. This would be the answer to many prayers, I think. Thanks!

Thanks for all of your interest,

I've PM'ed each of you about receiving the plugin, and will send it out to you folk as you reply to those PM's.

I'm interested in hearing how you think it can be improved, so if you will all use this forum to tell me what you think, I'd appreciate it.

M.
