E-commerce Themes Beautifully Designed

Our next major project is to release several beautifully designed e-commerce themes. Some will be responsive (meaning compatible with mobile devices) and work with many of the leading WordPress e-commerce plugins so that you have a choice of which plugin you wish to use.

We don’t want to limit you in what e-commerce plugins you can use with our themes so we will make sure that they are as compatible as possible. Some of the plugins we plan to integrate into our themes are Cart66, Shopp, JigoShop, Quixly, and PulleyApp. We are interested in seeing what plugins you think we should integrate and also what styles of themes we should be designing.
