Did a quick forum search and didn't see this covered, so my apology if it has been.

I'm in the process of setting up an Builder/Exchange store, and I'm going to start with a child theme and customize as needed.

In looking through the Exchange specific child themes (such as Hudson) and then looking at other Builder themes which are NOT exchange specific, I was attracted to the Air child theme.

So my question... Because Air is not an exchange-specific child theme, will I have trouble?  What's the advantage of using an exchange child theme versus just  a "plain builder" one?

Hi John,

You shouldn't have any issues using Exchange with the Builder Air theme.  Those Builder themes with Exchange integration just have styling specific to Exchange.  So, using the Air theme may require some additional styling on your part, but will not affect functionality.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.
