It may sound like a cliché, but it is true: The first impression is not only important in real life, but also when shopping online. More and more users do not want to browse through boring, old-fashioned shops. In addition, it has to be considered that design trends are changing all the time and a shop may look outdated within years.
Your shop software provides you with many design templates – so-called themes – that you can use to give your shop a great design. Additionally, we’ve recently launched many new, modern and user-friendly themes that are available at different prices at the ePages Theme Store.
All of our themes have beautiful and fresh looks and can be used for all kinds of shops. No matter if you want a huge header picture to present promotional campaigns, teaser images for showing off your main categories or a modern full-screen menu – every theme has its own advantages.
One of our main focuses while developing the themes was usability. We believe that online shopping should not be a complicated experience and your customer’s visit in your shop should be as pleasant and stress free as possible. Our themes make it easy for your customers to find the products they are looking for and to purchase them.
The layout of the themes allow you to quickly swap the placeholder images with your own pictures, so you can start selling with the new design in just a few clicks.
How you can use the Theme Store
The Theme Store offers you an overview of all themes which are currently available. You can browse through the themes and download the one that suits your needs.
For every theme there is a live preview that allows you to have an in-depth look at it.
The prices of the themes range from 43.95 GBP to 73.95 GBP. For a limited time most of the themes are available for 21.95 GBP.
You would like to try out one of the new themes at no cost? Then you can try “Simple” and “Vanilla” for free by selecting them right from your shop’s administration area. Just go to Apps & Themes in the menu bar and then select Theme Store. There you can find a wide range of themes including “Simple” and “Vanilla”.
One of our bestsellers: Freedom
”Freedom” is one of the bestsellers in our Theme Store:
The start page of the theme features a very big background image that fills the whole screen for most users. By selecting the right image, you can start your visitor’s buying experience on the right note. You are for instance selling mountain bikes? Then you can choose an action-packed, exciting background image of a mountain biking event to create the right mood for your shop and appeal to your customer’s emotions immediately.
The page elements on the start page are structured clearly. Under the header image there are six products you can choose freely. Here you can place your best-selling products or items you want to sell quickly. Below these products, you can upload teaser images to lead the visitor to category pages or promotions. These images also give you the opportunity to use beautiful images that communicate the mood of your shop.
Visitors of your shop will also appreciate the theme’s details. For instance, the background colour of the menu bar changes from transparent to white during scrolling. The menu bar always stays at the top for easy navigation. These little details sometimes can be the icing on the cake for your shop, making your shop look professional, modern, trustworthy and up-to-date.
