WordPress is a wonderful content management system. I have been using it for 10 years more or less, and I have built all sorts of websites using it, from blogs to business sites and online apps.
That being said, getting an ecommerce site running out of WordPress is not so simple. You have two main options to make your life easier: you can either use a plugin, but those tend to be complex, or use a theme that is already optmized for some ecommerce plataform.
One of the best ecommerce platforms around is Shopify, and if you want to use that I have good news for you: the guys from Themezilla are giving away one of their premium themes which integrates directly with Shopify using their new ‘Zillacommerce’ feature.
Starting today (February 10th) and for one month, you’ll be able to download the theme free of charge.
Using the Hype theme you’ll be able to start selling online easily. Here are some of the features:
– Manage as many products as you want
– Offer a simple checkout for your customers
– Track sales and other numbers
– Integrate with marketing tools and shopping carts
– Keep all your WordPress website functionality
You can get all the details, view a demo and download the theme here. Enjoy!
