    Hi all!

    I´m writting because I trying to get a online store running for my company and I´m not sure how to do it. I´ve been looking around and found http://www.templatic.com by R. Bhavesh (previously PremiumThemes). They have some very nice WP themes, and some about online stores which look very nice as well.

    The thing is that I have been also looking around about the company, and other themes and found very to none info about them, experiences and so.

    Could anyone tell me about them? Previous experiences, themes, support, etc?

    I have make them some inquieries in their support forum, and received quick and helpful answers but I´m also looking for some users opinions.

    If anyone could help!

    Thanks!

    I've just started using one of their Templates. Their documentation was a bit average (it showed how to install the template and configure it - but was missing a few crucial instructions such as changing file permissions on some of the directories within the template (for image thumbnails, uploads, etc). The template I purchase is also lacking a few critical things (it's a classifieds template, and does not have a field for price) - and I'm having trouble getting support from them regarding this (i suppose it is a feature request rather than a bug). I've needed to edit a lot of the code to correct some bad english translations.

    Anyway, I think they make good templates - but you need to be pretty savvy editing php code to tweak it how you want... and don't expect too much from their support.

    Templatic is based in India. Contact information is +91 999 887 5851 (that's India)

    That's why user support is lacking and you're having to edit the language and nuances.

    They do have some nice templates but lack in customer support. It's a pity. Just different communication standards and level of urgency to what Americans are generally used to.

    @everyone
    Was pointed to this thread just today itself. Instead of defending everything outright, I'd like to mention some of the facts here.

    - We live in different timezone (GMT +5:30) and that results in response delay of about 12 hours.
    - other than me, We do have two full time and one part time support person working for templatic.

    DOCUMENTAION
    - We do have thorough documentation on file permissions and common issues but they are separate and not mentioned in theme installation guide (because they are not directly part of the theme.) But i am taking this note and will be updating all the guides referring to the seperate documentation one needs.

    CUSTOMIZATION SUPPORT
    - We do receive two type of customization support request. The part of support is basic customization like theme troubleshooting, minor design tweaks and so on which are directly are part of the theme.

    - advanced customization request such as adding new custom fields in forms (which require complete change in programming), adding entirely new features which feels nice to have but the ones that we have not included in the theme (nor we are claiming to have them). Naturally we have to deny this because that is not something we sell. Also it takes days for us to simply add the feature user ask which is not a part of our theme.

    @minimoe - I wish to ignore the comment on our beloved country India but when you are referring to whole country, I've to defend. If problems are there, they are in us and not in our country. In our about page, we do proudly mention that we are from India and taking hint from phone number is not necessary. I do not see any why living in country like US automagically makes you guy superior but anyway, this is not a discussion thread about that.

    CONCLUSION
    having said all this, I am going sit back again and rethink the overall support at templatic and resolve to improve Documentation, New help articles, Support desk and in any other way possible.

    hey rbhavesh , i think blaming timezone differences is a complete cop out. if you are selling a product you should back it up, and provide your customers with the level of support they have come used to. america, india... it doesn't matter where you are anymore.

    active user forums on sites such as woothemes and elegant themes have proven to be excellent an resource time and again for me, and many others in here. your generic responses mean nothing - take a look at what other developers are doing apply it to your own business. they have good business models -> good products + good support = happy customers.

    Of course you are right when you say we should back up our products. And we agree with that. As for time difference, I do not agree though. We have a support person who lives in US and provides support in that time. We + our developers live in India and we do provide support during India day time. Ultimately, we are human too and can not really start working at night because majority of our customer base lives in US.

    That being said, if you take a look at our blog you will see that we have provided product updates time to time and keep up with the trend. Plus, create products that the sites you mentioned haven't been able to come up.

    Ultimately, we are not here to debate whether we are great or other ones. The core question is about support. You might find my answer generic but unless we are discussing specific problem, the answers will sound generic.

    Please do let me know if I can be of help to you with regarding to our theme. The best place to ask for the help is Templatic Helpdesk though.

    I am having an issue with the payment.php in the store theme. Once a customer clicks confirm to place order it doesn't continue onto paypal like it should. Any help would be great.

    sure we would love to help. But this is not the place where we can provide help as the issue needs to be assigned to our programmer. We'd appreciate if you can create a helpdesk ticket at templatic.com/helpdesk

    In the meantime, try disabling the plugins you may have installed just to be sure they are not interfering with the theme

    RB...I actually did that...I was just hoping someone on here would be able to provide some input..as the suggestions from the tickets I have in with Templatic are not working. The only plugin I have enabled is Akismet..beyond that there is nothing else. Thinking about re-installing the entire template.

    in that kind of case, we do request wp-admin logins temporarily of your site in response to the ticket so we can login to your site and find out the problem, fix it for you. Simply let me know the ticket number once you respond the ticket.

    I have posted 3 help requests for my Store template in the last 2 days at Templatic and have received no help at all. I remedied my first problem by totally reinstalling everything - now I have an issue that I simply can't figure out. I have probably installed and configured 20 or 30 WordPress sites in my time - and this has been the most frustrating theme ever. Please install a forum at your web site so at least the users can help each other.

    1) A forum is coming up - by the 15th of this month.

    2) Went to our helpdesk and checked your tickets. Total 2 tickets are there and the staff has responded saying they are temporarily placing the ticket for hold because a programmer needs to take at this issue you are facing. We live in different time zone and hence the delay of the few hours.

    3) its 9:30am here and our staff is not in the office yet. I will have the issue resolved once they get in.

    4) In the meantime, if this is a fresh WP install, try auto install feature of our theme. It will auto install widgets, settings, few sample products and pages. You can modify the content further after that.

    5) While comparing this theme with other, please consider that this theme also includes complete shopping cart built in. It is natural that the settings etc. are a bit different and advanced comparing with the simple 2/3 colomn blog themes.

    Finally, just give us few more hours. Your ticket will be responded as soon as our staff comes to the office.

    @rbhavesh - I'm on day 4 of a web site I can't show to my client. It's been 15 hours since your crew apparently didn't show for work. I have uninstalled and reinstalled this theme twice. My comparisons were being made to the demo of this exact store at your web site - which my client used and approved. The product you sold me does not function as the demo did. In the US we call that "bait & switch" - and it's against the law. Please refund my $65 promptly.

    As we have communicated several hours back, hope you are feeling good now. Like we said before support forum is on way. Not more than one week now.

    Hey, is anyone out there (who is using WP Store by Templatic) experiencing this? We can only see orders that are paid for via PayPal and have no view (or even news) of orders that are received and paid for by Authorize.net (credit card payment). The order gets passed on to the Authorize.net server, but they show no name or address information associated to the order. So this information is not being passed from our Templatic themed site.This is a MAJOR problem! We have no record of receiving a credit card order, and Authorize.net shows buyer name or address....only the charge amount. HELP RBHAVESH!!

    I have sent you this via your Support site several times, but the reply has been that perhaps the customer did not enter their name or address information. C'mon....a charge could have never bee authorized without this information!! There is clearly a problem with the theme.

    If you are good with paying for a premium theme and fix bugs yourself, yes, then maybe.

    But overall, the template I bought (answers = $99) did not meet my expectations. I spent hours trying to figure out why things didn't work. Ending up rewriting some of the code. So I don't recommend this to anyone.

    In my opinion, too much of the implementation is inconsistent and some basic things like error handling is simply missing.

    A lot of free themes, like atahualpa, do a much better job.

    @rbhavesh

    Please contact me at "johnnada80@googlemail.com". I purchased one of your themes but am having trouble with a couple of bugs that I need to resolve ASAP. I tried going to your website but it appears to be down. I need to get my site online before the Christmas period ends. Please contact me ASAP!

    Thank you

    What happened to Templatic.com? Yes, it has been down for a while.....did they finally drop out?

    @redtailscream - nope brother. We are not going to drop out ever. The thing is, we have been DDoS attacked (other theme companies like woo and theme junkie have been attacked as well) and we have been constantly providing updates on our twitter and facebook account on what is happening.

    Things seem to be stable for now - you should be able to access templatic site, member area, forum and helpdesk.

    Though, the DDoS attack is still going on and we are working along with our website host on this.
