Hi Terry,
- wishlist : there's an "idea forum" where you can post your own wishes ; they seem to take them into account (some ideas are labelled as "planned")
- plugins / modules : none ! Their approach is to make "the best shopping cart available", as they say, no more, no less. I think you can have a good overview of what's possible to do or not with their FAQ : http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/15853263/General-Faq
- customization : that's precisely what seduced me first with ecwid - you can override the original css and make your own for a better fit with your site's design. It's not that simple if you want more than a new background color, in my opinion, but that's feasable.

Looking at Ecwid I have to say I'm impressed.
I will be going with this option for a test server and see how myself and my clients like it.

@stallain I was more looking for a Wishlist as a part of the Cart. Instead of adding to the cart, they can add it to their wishlist for later use...or if they just are not ready to purchase. Or a wishlist like Amazon, where you can add items to your wishlist and link to it for other to buy it for you for birthdays, etc.

As for the plugins/modules, sounds nice if it comes with everything I need. Sounds like it doesn't yet, but it does look promising. I might set it up on a test basis to check it out more.

@stallain: Any chance I can convince you to explain how you got the ecwid code to work with your SilverStripe?
I'm trying to get it working on only one page, so I can use a Shop page, but tinymce keeps stripping code and I can't figure out how to get it to load on that page only..

@Trenatos : actually, I didn't add the ecwid code with TinyMCE ; I copied it in a new page template I created especially for the online-shop.

@stallain
This is strange and annoying, but I can't get it to work.
I have a new template for my shop page, I changed it so the page uses that template instead of the standard page one.
I put the ecwid java in the template in the template, but the page is all white.
Using firebug I can see that the code is there but nothing is being displayed.. Any thoughts or pointers?
