Depot Child Theme for Builder Review

Depot Child Theme for BuilderAbout the Depot Child Theme

Design/Development: by iThemes, Justin Kopepasah. Justin is on a team of developers and is primarily an iThemes Builder Child Theme/WordPress child theme developer.

Theme Concept:

Depot Child Theme is an eCommerce child theme for iThemes Builder. It was designed to simply fit a need, the need for a solid eCommerce Builder Child Theme. Depot is optimized and compatible with three different WordPress Ecommerce plugins: Shopp, Cart66 and WP-Ecommerce. Combined with the Shopp eCommerce Plugin this theme provides everything anyone needs to run an online store.

E-Commerce plugins do typically incur some type of premium upgrade that allows the developers compensation for the amount of work that an eCommerce plugin takes to have them function ideally. Premium plugins are sold separately and are not part of the Depot theme – the theme is only designed to accommodate and style what each of the plugins has within them.
