Hundreds of new theme releases pop up every single day in the thriving wordpress community. Some are a lot more functional than others, with some being very “standard” and some being pretty unique. But, every once in a while you will come across a theme that pushes the envelope and demonstrates uses that few would ever consider possible with WordPress. Market does just that.
The market theme for WordPress is a brand new premium theme. By premium, I mean that the theme is not available for free like most WordPress themes. Instead, the theme is available with a single license for just $40 USD – an extremely small price to pay for big functionality.
Spawned from the requests of clients over and over again to put together a “market-like” theme for their projects, the Market theme is the perfect theme to build your storefront off of. The purpose of the market theme is not to be extremely flashy, but to function like a normal storefront should. It should be easy to use and easy to customize, and the market theme does exactly that.
Using the power of custom fields, the Market theme makes showcasing products nearly effortless. Never used custom fields before? The extensive documentation included with the download will guide you through the entire process. Easily add multiple product images, prices, and more – and have it all translated into a automatically generated paypal buy now button.
The theme doesn’t stop there either. For the one-time license fee, you also are entitled to unlimited upgrades, and downloads of different modifications. For example, you can download a version that replaces the “buy now” button with an add to cart button, powered by FatFreeCart (and integrated with both paypal and google checkout).
All in all, the theme is very affordable and a theme that you will want to check out. To celebrate the recent theme launch, I will be giving away two free copies on this site to those interested.
