    Well, I recently created an e-commerce website.
    Well, I am in the middle of creating it at the moment. I did search around on the forums for something like this, and I didnt really find any that really fit my needs.

    I am making a website, but am very particular on my theme. Anyone have an favorites on wordpress, or any other platforms that are noob friendly?
    The only reason I dont hire a coder is, I want to be able to manage my own site, and know whats going on. I am slowly learning code, but am not really in a rush as I am quite busy at the moment.

    Can any recommend some themes?

    A few features I would like are

    Review Tab
    1. Reviews Tab
    2. Description Tab
    3. Have box listings on the page of the item

    I pretty much want this exact theme,
    -I cant post link, but its called bazar shop on theme forest-
    but dont really feel like paying $55 to theme forest

    I just LOVE the Layout of it. I am gonna be selling cables, tablets, headphones, audio items, pretty much a lot of electronics. I am kinda looking for something like cmple. I like their base layout, and their description and review section.
    I mean, if I bought the bazar theme, I would have a clean homepage like CMPLE, and then have the rest of the selling pages, look like the main page of bazar.

    Anyone know any themes with those needs, know any noob friendly platforms, or can just recommend anything for e-commerce overall?

    Thanks a ton!

    p.s. Been lurkin around for over a year now, decided to sign up, so thank you for any help . Also sorry for the weird set up, im new so I cant post links

    Well I have a uniqe niche that I am gonna use with it. I just need a sleek looking website. Im trying out ZenCraft as we speak. Is Zen what you use?
    Hm... do I have to install this Zip into my website? I downloaded it, and its just a bunch of pre built HTML files?

    you have to extract the zip file after that just loggin with filezilla or any other ftp client , go to your website folder. look for wp-content open that, now you will see Themes
    just drag and drop the just extracted file into themes and wait for uploading than activate it from your website control panel.

    hope it helped

    If you want the exact theme " bazar shop " then why not just buy it?

    For $55 your getting a bargain for an ecomerce theme... if Wordpress is the platform you want to use.

    I would check out templatemonster for themes on OpenCart, Magento, ZenCart etc..

    I would decide on which shopping cart you want to use, then decide which theme

    Let us know which one you pick :)

    ive got to say to the o.p. of this thread, that CAS87 is giving you some solid advice regards an ecomm wp theme because out of the box the one youve chosen isn't only gorgeous, it also seems to be highly functional and according to the support thread is fully functional with the free wp plugin WOO COMMERCE - in fact - ive got a client who will wet themselves when they see this (they probably won't, it'll probably go over their heads, but they should wet themselves as this theme is that good).

    incidentally the designers of are also responsible for the VIXEN responsive theme
