Does anyone possibly want to share a link to their WooCommerce Store? I’d like to see some live ones before I delve in and start purchasing themes and extensions. Also let me know how it’s working out for you! 🙂
Most of the cool stuff on this site is done from scratch or using free plugins.
Only paid plugins are the intuit payment gateway and UPS shipping method (which doesn’t get much use) and the google products feed (which there’s now a free option for that)
Theme is a custom design starting from the roots framework. From what I’ve seen from just the free themes woothemes has, they’re very easy to use and have lots of options, and being responsive out of the box is really nice as well.
Wow, your store looks amazing. It doesn’t even look like wordpress! I’m going to probably have to buy some extensions and a theme as well if I go this route. I tried out Magento and I didn’t understand any of it.
I’m a bit confused with the “It doesn’t even look like wordpress” comment above. WordPress sites don’t “look like” anything, they can be whatever you design, hence I don’t really understand what the comment is referring to? Any chance of clarification on that?
Wordpress CAN be whatever you design, but there is a classic WordPress blog look that a lot of WordPress themes have by default – especially the free ones. Just do a Google search for “make WordPress look like a website” and you’ll see several articles about how to customize your WordPress site so that it doesn’t “look like wordpress”. It IS a thing.
@bheadrick this is what I meant. I’ve been told by prospective employers that my sites don’t “look like WordPress”. But what I meant in my comment was that the site doesn’t look like a blog or anything.
Ahh, now it makes a little more sense. Though I would say that hopefully most WP developers are not creating sites that look just like a blog. I haven’t done one of those for 5 years, and I certainly hold to my view that nowadays there’s really no such thing as a WordPress “look”. Maybe years ago, but not now.
