Every week we’re seeing a huge number of third party plugins being released for Jigoshop, in addition to our first party products.

Moneris Payment gateway:

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.
