The ShopSite plugin for WordPress allows to you to easily add products, including 'Add to Cart' buttons, to any page or blog post.  Products are displayed using the same templates assigned to the embedded option under Merchandising > Order Anywhere.

If you are using the CDN option with WP-Super Cache, it is necessary to follow this step, in addition to below.

Additional documentation from ShopSite is available at: http://www.shopsite.com/help/12.0/en-US/sc/pro/wordpress.html

  2. Search for 'ShopSite'

  3. Under the Shopsite plugin, click "Install Now"
