How to test Jigoshop live with no install needed

Posted in Blog, Support and tagged , , , on by .

You can now test and make changes to a live Jigoshop store – with no need to install software. Our new demo site allows you to log in and see all the data and information you get with a typical Jigoshop setup. And you can even make and save changes, and see what happens live via the front end.

Our new demo tool uses the default WordPress Twenty Eleven theme to display a selection of products which you can then amend and change as you would on your own shop. Change descriptions, prices, attributes and variables to see how they look and act.

When you visit the demo site you’re supplied with a username and login, and from there you can make any allowable changes. The install does include some addition plugins allow you to get an idea of how powerful Jigoshop is:

You can see how these extensions act, and interact, to provide an eCommerce website which meets the needs of your business and your customers.

In addition to the changes you can make, you also get access to all the reporting available in the core Jigoshop download, including reports on Sales. This includes Top Earners, Most Sold, Total Orders and Sales, and the number of New Customers.

So if you’re interested in using Jigoshop for your store this is a great way to make sure you know what to expect. And if you’re working on client projects you now have a ready-made demonstration they can log into and play around with – which should mean happier clients knowing what they will be getting, and less time before you can train them in how to run their new eCommerce website.

Please note that the demo will reset to default settings every 24 hours, so this isn’t a way to set up a specific client demo as you may find all your work disappears. There’s also no user limit, so you may find that other users are editing the site at the same time as you’re making changes.

If you just want to check out how different themes look, our Theme Demo still exists – so you can check out all the official Jigoshop themes in detail.
