eCommerce Template – Pinshop by Themify

Cost to build your own Online Store that is inspired by Pinterest will cost less than $100.  I’ve listed the cost breakdown below.  I recommend you use Wordpress and Wordpress Themes.   Pinshop is an ecommerce Wordpress Theme that is inspired by the Pinterest site and the popular Pinboard theme.  Products load infinitely as you scroll down the page. Not only does it look fantastic, but it also provides a great user experience. Buyers can take a complete overview of all products without having to jump around the pages. When the page is resized, it automatically re-positions the products. The shop items can be added to the cart instantly without having to go to the product page. All these features work consistently on all modern browsers on both desktop and mobile devices.  It also has a Ratings & Reviews so buyers can leave comments and star ratings for products.  Click here to see more features of Pinshop.

Startup Cost to Create an Online Store

1.  $56 for Webhosting.   First step to create your own Online Store is to purchase a domain name.  But these days you can purchase the domain name and web hosting together to save costs.  If you purchase web hosting from Fatcow.com, you get a free domain name, unlimited emails, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited MySQL databases and more.  Right now Fatcow has a 40% off sale, I would take advantage of this now.  Click here for more details about Fatcow.com.

2.  $0 for Wordpress.  WordPress is an open source and totally free.  Fatcow has one click installs for WordPress installations.

3.  $39 for WordPress Theme.    This is a one time fee to purchase Pinshop from Themify.  There are no membership fees, no hidden fees and no subscription fees.  In addition if you purchase a theme from Themify, you get to download another theme for free.

4.  -$175 in Advertising Credits.  Fatcow understands it’s difficult to get your Online Store visible and helps you with advertising your website on respective search engines and social networking platforms.  So Fatcow gives you for free $100 in Google Adwords credits, $50 in Facebook Ad credits and $25 in Yahoo/Bing Adcenter credits.

In Total to make your Online Store will be:

But if you include the free advertising credits you get from Fatcow.com, your initial startup cost will be:

  • Startup cost = Total Cost + Advertising Credits = -$80

Basically you don’t pay any startup costs to create your own Online Store.

This is a great way to create your own online store.   You should definitely check out the demo to see this Pinterest-inspired online store in action.  You will see featured products on a slider at the top and products listed below.  As you scroll down to the bottom of the page, more products will automatically appear without you having to click on the next page.  You can choose to add item directly to your shopping cart or open it and see more details about it.  You can add star ratings and reviews, see related products, see top rated products and more.  I totally love this Online Store WordPress Theme.
