Two more plugins are being added to the Jigoshop Extension list, and will allow you to bulk upload a limitless amount of products by importing a spreadsheet, and answer product specific enquiries quickly and easily.That means there are now a whopping 54 extensions available, covering a huge range of payment gateways, shipping options and making running an eCommerce store quicker and easier than ever!
The Product Importer Deluxe
The much-anticipated ability to import products into Jigoshop from a .CSV spreadsheet file is now here, and it will make setting up a new store or updating an existing product list quicker and easier. After activating the plugin, you’ll be able to upload data from an .CSV file, including spreadsheets created in Excel or equivalent programmes (Open Office or Libre Office for open source examples).
You’ll also be able to upload images in bulk, and then assign them to specific products either manually or automatically, and there’s no upper limit to the number of products Jigoshop, or the Products Importer Deluxe, can handle, meaning that you can create any size of eCommerce shop without having to create each product and upload every image individually.
And if you’re got a shop already running, you can use the importer to add new product ranges or update everything in one go. It’s a great timesaver and just $49.
The Product Enquiry Form
The most important questions for any shop owner are those coming from people ready to buy your products. And by putting a product enquiry form on specific product pages, you can now make sure those emails are filtered and responded to quickly, rather than ending up mixed with more general questions and spam emails.
By activating the Product Enquiry Form plugin, you can allow customers to ask questions and supply their name and address for a reply. A handy reCaptcha field filters out the spam you might get by listing an email address publicly, and you won’t have to check through hundreds of emails to find the ones which could be the difference between making and losting a sale.
The Product Enquiry Form plugin is just $19, which is good value when it can make such a difference to your sales.
Prometheus – Responsive Jigoshop theme
Finally for today there’s a gorgeous new Jigoshop theme now available from Alex Gurghis, who previously created the Aventador theme. Named after the Greek God who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mankind, Prometheus could definitely light up your WordPress eCommerce store store with 24 template pages, unlimited colours, and it’s all ready and waiting to add a BBPress forum as well.
Definitely well worth checking out, and we hope to see Alex creating even more Jigoshop themes in the future!
