    I am looking to set up a small site for a friend of mine to play around with.
    I am not a great coder and I don't ant to spend a lot of time on it. But I don't want to make him pay for software unless I feel fairly confident that it will let him do what he wants with the site (he makes WordPress themes and wants to sell them as downloads). I have already suggested he try ThemeForest or similar outlets but he feels they take too large a percentage. (Pointing out that they also get huge traffic doesn't seem to matter to him - he really wants to do this on his own.)

    I want to know if ShopperPress might be something worth spending a couple of bucks on to add e-commerce capabilities to a WordPress install.

    It seems to have all the plugins and widgets pre-installed and configured, which is a major plus for me, as the main problems I have encountered before now are plugin conflicts.

    It also has language files, which is a huge plus as well, since here in Quebec we must by law offer both official languages (English and French) if we are providing a good or a service for sale.

    Has anyone used this software and if so, what is your opinion?

    Thanks,

    it sounds like they are good with graphics. why not set up a site to sell a variety of graphics other then for just themes. ad banner themes, stock images(not photos), logos, backgrounds. low cost high volume. the diversity would help his seo and repeat visits. just an idea.

    Selling additional graphics is a very good idea - what i want to know though, is how to get it online for sale. That's why I am looking at ShopperPress as a possible way to do this. I don't have the time or the ability to code an e-commerce site from scratch, and I'd like to set it up so he can add and update items himself.

    Any thoughts on this as a method? Or any suggestions of another way to set this up?

    On our host Soholaunch is free for a 15-day trial and then about 20 bucks a month after that - don't know if he'll even break even - certainly not at first, until he gets some traffic and sales...

    I'm going to try the Wordpress thing and see how it goes - I'll let you know...
