Will Jigoshop eCommerce work with X theme?

Jigoshop eCommerce will in theory work with any theme, but of course, certain parts may need to be styled using CSS to make them match up – that’s why we created the Layout Manager. We’ve added default styling for Twenty Thirteen,Twenty Fourteen,Twenty Fifteen,Twenty Sixteen and…WooThemes. We’re developing custom themes for the plugin – they should be available soon!

If you need a theme built, or have a theme that needs styling, give us a shout and we may be able to assist.

Jigoshop eCommerce comes with a .po file and is localisation ready in over 10 languages.

Amazing Support & Great New Look!

I was very nervous about migrating over to the new JigoShop eCommerce 2.0, because I didn’t know what type of issues I might face afterwards with our website. The migration was definitely not as bad as I thought it would be, but there were some things that needed to be fixed, and I did not know how to fix them. I contacted Jigoshop support, and I was so incredibly relieved to discover that Marcin was there to help! He has been fixing every issue that I find with our website and the new JigoShop eCommerce plugin. I can’t thank him enough for all his time – he is absolutely wonderful to work with! The new Jigsohop eCommerce is faster and looks amazing! I’m so glad we stuck with Jigoshop and held on during the migration. It’s worth it. I have been using Jigoshop for years, and they just get better and better. : )

Thank you so much for everything!


Jigoshop eCommerce Not Ready

With the April 1 deadline looming (two days as of this writing), Jigoshop eCommerce is far from release ready. Documentation does not exist, features do not work correctly, and support seems to be minimal. At this point it is unwise to migrate from Jigoshop 1.x.

I have high hopes for the future and will check back in 6 months or so. However, for the moment I am migrating larger clients to another platform, and recommending to smaller operations that they do not upgrade at this time but be ready to migrate eventually. All new clients will be developed on another platform.

Sorry Jigoshop – but you seem to have screwed the pooch here.

Useless ecommerce plugin, no documentation, no backwards compatibility

I don’t understand the reasoning behind putting a warning saying that ending support is imminent and to migrate to a new version when you have no documentation for the new version.

This makes this plugin almost useless – as a developer I have no way to do anything with it unless I want to sift through mountains of code for even the simplest things. How to get the cart url? Well now I’ve found myself in the Pages class for some reason digging around in there and still have no idea what’s going on.

No backwards compatibility – so if you follow the instructions that they put in that bright warning across the top of your screen (what?!) be prepared to pay a developer like me thousands of dollars to comb through the code and fix up a site with absolutely 0 documentation.

Edit: Now realizing that all my variations are gone from 3000 products, orders won’t migrate at all keep failing because of missing variations. Products page won’t load at all in the back end (504 gateway error) Good thing I made a DB backup!

Developers’ Nightmare

The folks at Jigoshop (Jigowatt?) seem to be stuck between two plugins – the legacy Jigoshop 1.x, and this one, a.k.a. Jigoshop eCommerce.

I appreciate them putting together a “Migration guide”, however one of the major pain-points of this version is integration with themes. Their website has documentation for their action hooks, however all the hooks listed are for the 1.x version.

As a net result, when an unsuspecting user switches to Jigoshop eCommerce and performs all the activities documented in the guide, all of a sudden that person is left with mismatched HTML tags because the old action hooks no longer exist … and there is no means to figure out what the new hooks are without digging into their code.

Much love

Top ecommerce solution for WordPress. I’ve been using this since early beta stage and everything works just fine. Comparing to old Jigoshop it’s like 3 times faster.
