Ecommerce comes to Flexx Themes- New Shopp Integration

Recently, Cory and I had the chance to get to know the awesome developers over at Shopp. After talking with them, we knew we wanted to get together and integrate their awesome e-commerce plugin in to some of our themes. Our team got together and decided that the best place to start integrating with their plugin would be Flexx. We now have 18 versions of Flexx, and it continues to be one of our most popular themes.

As of today, all 18 Flexx themes integrate seamlessly with the Shopp plugin. What does that mean to you? It means that all you have to do to use Shopp with Flexx is activate both the plugin and the theme. All of the Shopp template files are now built in to Flexx. Once both are activated, you can simply start adding products using Shopp’s awesome user interface.

Some of you may also be wondering how this will affect you if you aren’t using the Shopp plugin with Flexx. No need to worry. If you aren’t using the Shopp plugin, you won’t even know we made the changes.

If you are looking for a great e-commerce plugin to power your WordPress store, I definitely recommend you check out the guys over at Shopp. I have personally used their plugin and I really love it.

Keep in mind, if you want to take advantage of the new integration, you have to upgrade your Flexx theme to the latest version. You can always find the latest version of your theme in your member area.

NOTE: I just wanted to clear up any confusion that there may be about the integration. Shopp and Flexx are still two separate products from two separate companies. Purchasing Flexx does not get you access to the Shopp plugin. This integration is simply to make the user experience for users who want to use the products together better.

  1. The SHOPP site lists the least expensive version of their plugin at $55. Is there a fee or cost for using this newly integrated plugin with FLEX?

    • Ryan, you have to buy Shopp in order to use the features we’ve integrated. It’s a stand-alone product and so is ours but we’ve tried to make it easier to use both together.

  2. Hi. Love it. Is this mulituse like Flexx is? I have three itheme WP sites I want to add it to. One of those is your eCommerce theme which I just bought. Can I add it to that too? As I don’t have sections in it such as “Sales”

  3. While I think it’s great that your finding ways to seamlessly integrate this plugin with your themes, you really need kick your web designer(s) in the backside. FLEXX is probably one of the lamest looking WP themes I’ve seen for a long time. I understand that we can certainly customize the look of the theme, but help us to envision the possibilities. You’d probably increase FLEXX sales.
