    Would be more useful if it was written if the theme is free or “premium”. Takes time to check everyone!

      I can confirm this. I went through several “premium” ones and found nothing.

    11, 12 & 13 seem to no longer be available. Links redirect to Templatic.com, where those themes are nowhere to be found.

    Can anyone recommend a good plugin to add products to one of these sites instead of having to add each product manually?

      Do you mean importing them to your database? While there are a lot of themes and a lot of plug-ins to make WordPress become a e-commerce platform, I personally think WordPress is not suited for e-commerce stores because it lacks a lot of features such as importing, attributes, report and so on. You should use Magento instead.

    Some of the first themes are nice. However, some of the last themes are too simple and only suited for small stores.

      What’s wrong with a small store? They aren’t “too” anything. It just depends on your needs and there is nothing wrong with using wp for ecommerce. Once again, it depends on what a person needs.

    I had a client that needed a wordpress site to sell baby shoes. I spent over 5 hours online looking for a good template with no luck.
    I had to hire someone to create the whole thing from scratch which cost a lot of money and the profits were lower than expected.

    The major problem I found was the payment integration. Most of those templates work great until you need to integrate the payment and the inventory system.

    The number 1 entry – “Store” has proven to be a nightmare for me. I usually design in Dreamweaver, so it’s been a real shock that there’s not an ounce of intuitive design going on here. Perhaps a code warriors’ dream – not mine. Also – tech support is sending an email and getting a ticket that says they’re working on. Templatic – you kinda blow.

    If you have some bucks to spend, I highly recommend to buy one of the premium themes. They are much more powerful, flexible and have great support to answer your questions. Check out my review Top premium WordPress themes

    You can also turn just about any WordPress theme into an e-commerce store using the PHPurchase Ecommerce WordPress plugin. You can sell digital products, physical products, recurring billing, subscriptions, etc. PHPurchase even has membership management features so you can have some content only available to members with active subscriptions. Here is a link to find out more about PHPurchase WordPress Ecommerce plugin

    Can you add the Sommerce Shop that i just released on ThemeForest? Is the first e-commerce theme with unlimited backgrounds, 60 custom background, unlimited skins, 200+ fonts, 6 sliders and so on. I think is it very versatile and nice, and i hope you and your readers like it.

    Has anyone looked into ColorShop?
    It’s a eCommerce plugin for WordPress. It has great attributes filtering and sorting panel. I suggest to have a try for this.
    The plugin is here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/colorshop/
