    Do you have any ecommerce themes? What do you recommend for integrating ecommerce onto a studiopress or wordpress site? Thank you.

    The Agency theme is an ecommerce theme. Also, check out ZigZagPress for a few more ecommerce options.

    The Clipcart Genesis Child theme is an eCommerce theme that works with the Cart66 plugin – http://my.studiopress.com/themes/clipcart/. Mompreneur is also an eCommerce child theme that works with WooCommerce – http://my.studiopress.com/themes/mompreneur/.

    Yes, you would need to install WooCommerce and an additional plugin called Genesis Connect for WooCommerce – http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-connect-woocommerce/. Keep in mind that even with these, you could still run into some styling issues, so it’s important to read all of the documentation for both products.

    Agency looks nice. I’ll try and provide some general advice on WHAT you should be looking for and WHY. I’m a guy who:

    a) Develops websites for clients
    b) Does heavy SEO work
    c) Has his own very successful retail business (and recently spend almost AUD$10k on some very heavy conversion and click through auditing)

    This is stuff I’m good at and a lot of sites get it wrong. Hell, I got it wrong for a while and it took me weeks to slowly correct over time on a single site! Here’s some things you should check:

    1) Always get a responsive template and check it on 3-5 different screen sizes every step of the way during development. Mobile purchasing accounts for 10-20% of all sales and it needs to be good. Not just “ok”, GOOD!

    2) Always get LESS in your theme. Less lines/shades/fancy bits/junk. Less less less. Right now, I’d use the sample genesis child theme if it were me, but that’s probably a lot of extra work for most folks. Less = more because going from 3s load time to 4s load time = ~20% or so customer loss. Save that load time for bigger pictures which nets a huge ++ gain on sales.

    3) Sounds silly, but get a theme with really nice buttons and form elements if you can! 3d/glossy/animated – whatever. Just make sure those form elements look *great*. Makes a big difference.

    4) If it’s not very light colored/white, don’t touch it. You’ll know what I mean when you work with images.

    Also – not theme related – make sure you can build tiered navigation. Google tiered navigation seo or seo navigation structure if this is a foreign concept (I think it is to many WP’ers, because I found ONE plugin that does it well – WP Nav Plus by Matt Keys).

    Not only is it great for SEO, it allows you to control what pages are most important within your site to Google *and* customers love it. They don’t love (or really use) the mega menu style stuff once they’re hip deep in deals and buy now buttons.
