Jigoshop Round-Up: October 2011

Posted in Blog, Development, Extensions, Jigoshop Showcase, Third Party Themes and tagged , , , , , , on by .

It’s been another busy month for the world of Jigoshop and WordPress eCommerce as when we’re busy working on the back-end of the code or making improvements to our support packages, there are a huge number of developers and designers releasing their own products as well. So here’s a rundown of everything that’s happened in the last month:

Jigoshop developments and extensions:

Mailchimp Extension for Jigoshop: Email is an incredibly important way to build your online business, which is why we’ve released a Mailchimp plug-in to import your customers into your mailing list. It follows on from the Campaign Monitor extension released in September.

JPlayer Music Sampler extension for MP3 Downloads: Selling downloads, such as MP3 files, rather than physical products? It’s now just got easier with the great JPlayer Music Sampler, which makes uploading quick and simple.

Improvements to Jigoshop Support: One of our biggest priorities and passions is supporting the Jigoshop community, and to constantly evolve and improve how we can help you – which is why we’ve recently unveiled our new support section for you to connect and share tips, advice and feature requests.

Great new Jigoshop themes:

Sommerce – an extremely customisable and configurable theme produced by the talented Sara Presenti, and allowing you to really make your store stand out with some simple options and choices. We really like it, and we’re sure you will too.

Animal House – a nice image-led eCommerce theme targetting animal adoption services, pet stores and really doing a great job on providing exactly what you’d want when you’re animal-focused in your business.

Inspirational Jigoshop Showcase sites:

Wondering how flexible Jigoshop is? Want to enjoy some inspirational design or perhaps find someone to work with for your business? Then check out:

We’re hiring – be part of the Jigoshop team:

We’re always interested in hearing from experienced and talented web developers, and we’ve got some vacancies at the moment – both to work on the core code base of Jigoshop, and for a range of clients on behalf of parent company Jigowatt. The specific details are here, and if the formal roles aren’t quite right for you, don’t forget that we’d love you to contribute to Jigoshop as an open source project which can help you raise your profile and build connections in the WordPress community – and if you build a theme or extension, we can help you monetise it.

    It is great to see so many developments for JigoShop but I would really like to see some of your own themes for JigoShop. The problem with themes from theme forest is that some providers there provide great ongoing support and some providers on themeforest release a theme and provide support for only a few weeks then disappear when you need them.

    The last three theme releases from JigoShop have also been very minimal in design so something more elaborate in a theme that actually is designed by the JigoShop team would really be nice to see.

      Hi Matthew, you won’t have very long to wait. We have quite a few in progress but obviously need to test thoroughly before release. Thank you for your patience.

      It’s true that support isn’t required for ThemeForest themes but there’s quite a few authors who give top notch support anyway… like me! :)

      I’m the author of the Animal House theme on ThemeForest (which proudly features Jigoshop). Check it out when you have a chance and let me know if it might interest you.

      I’d also love some feedback about what kind of design you’re looking for in a theme that features Jigoshop. Feel free to shoot me a message from my TF profile contact form:
