Photographers love to share their photographs with website visitors.  Make sense, right?  Photographers also want to sell their photographs to these visitors.  Also makes sense, right?

So why not combine the power of eCommerce with the styling of WordPress themes for photographers?

WordPress eCommerce Photography Themes

The majority of eCommerce themes do not rely on their own functionality.  In fact, the popular ones are Cart66, WP e-Commerce, JigoShop, Easy Digital Downloads and WooCommerce.  The clear winner of third-party eCommerce support is WooCommerce.

  1. Hello.

    I use a Photocrati theme. I love it. I want to buy another one I think. The only problem I am having is, I need to be able to have custom price lists. For example, not every 8×10 will be the same price for different images, surfaces, mediums, etc. As of now, do not see a way to make multiple price lists, and I have too many specific items I need to price to use one list. Is there a plugin or something you can suggest? Also – do the themes have to use paypal or can I change the payment method at some point? Many thanks, Traci

    • Hi Traci,

      Price lists are on the roadmap, but the theme as of version 4.6 has unlimited pricing options so you can create multiple 8×10 options and choose which 8×10 can be used with a specific gallery. Not as simple as a quick-choose price list, but that’s why it’s on the roadmap.
