Ecommerce Templates WordPress integration
Combining all the great shopping cart features from Ecommerce Templates with the flexibility of WordPress you can get a powerful online store set up and selling in no time at all. Integrate the shopping cart software into an existing WordPress site, start a new site from scratch with the theme of your choice or begin with one of the exclusive Ecommerce Templates WordPress themes..
We have set up an integration method which allows you to control the design side of things in the same way you would with a regular WordPress site whilst maintaining the integrated store via the regular Ecommerce Templates control panel. This is not just another simple WordPress ecommerce plug-in but a fully featured shopping cart wrapped into the WordPress framework.

The integration with WordPress is very similar to our Generic Version. Basically we give you 5 PHP include lines to paste into custom pages within WordPress which will make up the 9 or 10 pages required by the shopping cart. You would then upload the admin files from your Ecommerce Templates download, make the database connection for the store and start managing your products, shipping, payments etc through the Ecommerce Templates online control panel that resides on your server. The integration does assume you have a copy of WordPress installed on your server.
Alternatively you can start with one of the exclusive Ecommerce Templates WordPress themes and use that as the starting point for you new store. These come with the stores pages already set up for you and multitude of configuration choices for layouts and colors.

Ecommerce Templates shopping cart software should be compatible with any WordPress theme but if in doubt please do get in contact.
Yes, you can, just follow the integration instructions here.
Yes, you can, the shopping cart will just add an extra nine or ten pages to your site and will be set up as custom pages.
Can I use the cart in a responsive design and will the output adapt depending on the device I'm using or the browser window width?
Yes, you can, Ecommerce Templates supports responsive designs. The product, product detail and category pages can all be css based and there is code in place so the cart fits nicely into smaller browser windows.
Ecommerce Templates is licensed shopping cart software so you are free to host the store where you like. The license is good to set up one store on one domain. There is no connection to Ecommerce Templates once you have purchased unless of course you come back for support and updates. Everything is hosted on your server.
You can in theory use any recent version of WordPress but we do strongly recommend that you keep up with their updates for security reasons. The shopping cart software runs independently from WordPress so you don't need to update the cart each time you update WordPress.
This is not a WordPress plugin. The shopping cart database and admin section are independent of WordPress. This is important for security reasons as if your WordPress database were to be compromised, the shopping cart admin and database will be kept apart. It also allows for a fully featured shopping cart to be integrated without any constraints from the WordPress admin.
Yes, you can. We have integrated the shopping cart software into Dreamweaver. You can also use the HTML editor of your choice with our CSS, Responsive Designs and Generic Version.
The initial purchase comes with six months' support available here. Support is available directly from the developers of the shopping cart software.
We don't have a downloadable trial version but do offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the software or the service you receive from Ecommerce Templates.
At the moment the multiple language feature of having up to 3 languages from the same database is not available.
