    Hello everyone!

    I am looking to use a premium eCommerce theme preferably built on WordPress and turn it into an affiliate site.

    Basically like a catalogue of products from several different sites and link to them as an affiliate.

    I've seen shopper press and such themes but they all look pretty standard and nothing worth branding to stand out.

    There are loads of nice looking themes out there but all of them are tailored to using eCommerce plugins with an
    enabled cart function, so I am looking to remove this function just like many amazon affiliate themes do.

    Any ideas on themes or plugins that do this?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    These types of sites don't tend to make much money unless they are done correctly but if you are interested in getting into it, there is something that you can use and create your own custom wp theme affordably.

    http://www.wpthemegenerator.com/

    This is NOT my affiliate link and I have no personal association with them but, I have clients that swear by the service when needed in a pinch.

    Check it out, as I understand they have a large selection of templates for use to their members.

    Hope this helps.

    They don't tend to make much money? Is that from your own experience or just from others?

    I have a shopping directory coded in PHP using expression engine and that turns over 5 figures monthly. (gross profit)

    Would like to upgrade to a more modern look and magento & wordpress themes look the best to me.

    Every other amazon affiliate is basically just using the same concept however not sure how well those types of sites perform as some look ugly as sin!

    Thanks for the link I will check it out!
