Unique Featured Slider

eStore WordPress Shopping Cart ThemeOne of the most unique features of the eStore WordPress shopping cart theme is the stylish featured slider on the home page. Many sliders and slideshow plugins utilize basic slide transitions, such as fading or horizontal sliding. The eStore slider uses up to 5 hanging picture frames of image thumbnails for each featured slide. Clicking on the small thumbnail causes the frame to slightly drop down, a full size background image to load and a short excerpt to display in the designated area. Functional, elegant, and fun!

Deals of the Day Slider

Wordpress E-Commerce ThemeNot only does the eStore WordPress shopping cart theme have a main featured slider, but it also has a smaller, more reserved slider for “Deals of the Day” products. This lets you highlight specific products that might be on sale or are popular items. The smaller Deals of the Day slider helps save space by loading more products from outside the page width. Capitalize on this unique tool and load tons of extra products onto the front page without sacrificing space.

Stylish Product Pages

Adding, removing, or changing products is as simple as writing a blog post.

  1. We really like this WordPress theme. We decided not to use the shopping cart features, but it worked well to generate an online catalog of our products, which is what we really wanted.
