I’m an idiot. I didn’t realize that I couldn’t sell WooCommerce themes/extensions but I really should have. The extensions aren’t that big of a deal as I only have my time invested (they are open sourced here) but my WooCommerce theme is another matter. I paid a designer $500 to create the design. While I could still make the theme and release it for free I had really hoped to sell enough copies to break even (my goal in every business venture 🙂 ). I’m trying to be better with my money and I can’t take a $500 loss right now.
My plan for the theme was to bring Shopify level ease of use to WooCommerce. I’ve used a bunch of themes and I think they all suffer from the same problems. They are too hard to set up and require too many stock photos to look good. This theme was my attempt to solve that. All you need to do is add a product or two, activate the theme, and you are done. It was suppose to be the pinnacle of simplicity.
I had four pages designed. The homepage (which also serves as the category view), the blog page, the single post view, and the single product view. I’m looking for a best offer as close to $500 as I can get. Any funds I recover from this project will be put into my Othermill fund. If you are interested leave a comment here and I’ll show you the rest of the pages.
