    Hey, today I wanna present you my project.
    Firstly, I want to say I do this because I am not very happy with the most Themes and Plugins for Woocommerce.
    So I decided to develop my own theme and creating an Aliexpress Plugin to import products directly from Aliexpress into Woocommerce with descriptions, reviews and much more.
    I do this because of my own project, I personaly find, all those ecommerce themes(free ones) are not really that good to get good conversions. And I not want to pay for something, I am not 100% happy with it. So thats why I do it myself.

    To-Do List:
    - Theme Designing
    - Including Theme into wordpress
    - Make it woocommerce compatible
    - Aliexpress Plugin

    These are the 4 big steps I have to do!

    What I did so far:
    - Begin the theme designing on a local server


    I will keep this thread updatet and I hope you enjoy :)

    Good luck with it, but shouldn't this be in the journey section?

    I thought the journey section is only about making money? Maybe I am wrong

    No I think you're right, I just thought OP would get more interest there as not all members use this section.

    A small update, I was a little bit busy and I was a bit struggeling with the Navigationbar, to get the dropdown outputs correcty, but now it works fine :)
    I decided to design my theme in wordpress directly to prevent some errors...

    BIG UPDATE!!
    I got some updates! My theme is now working perfectly with WooCommerce and Worpress! I only need to do more Theme Stylings, cause I only focused on the compatibility in the last days. Now it is time to start the main design.
    Here are some screens.

    very interested, i avoid using shopify because of all the monthly payments, i been dropshipping with wordpress for two years with major success (lots of hard work) i know shopify simplifies all aspects of dropshipping. im hoping you create a plugin similar to oberlo !

    I will try my best right know I am little bit busy cause of reallife work, but I keep working on it.

    For me personaly shopify sucks, I think wordpress(woocommerce) is better for your own customizations etc.
