Which plugins do I need to set up a premium theme store? WordPress



I'd like to know which are the best plugins (free or paid) to use for setting up a premium theme store with WordPress, for example - Viva Themes, Templatic, Elegant Themes or WooThemes.

Thank you.

EDIT: To make the question clearer (because I think my question has been slightly misunderstood), I actually mean which plugins do premium theme sellers like WooThemes, Templatic, Viva Themes etc use to sell their themes?

Apologies for any confusion.

Hello Gemma,

I believe <strong>Viva</strong> uses [[LINK href=""]][[/LINK]],


EDIT: If the final answer is more custom, then maybe you don’t have to … Viva seems to be doing fine with ejunkie.

Okay thanks. I'm looking into this right now.

Go with West Coast Design on this one. The majority of theme sellers (that I know about) use e-junkie.

Thanks, that's very useful to know.

The best plugin I have ever seen for shops is WP e-Commerce. It is flexible, fully customizable and very easy to use. The good feature is integration with paypal. This plugin is free but there are few paid addons.

But there is no impossible things for e-Commerce :)

You could also watch nice themes for it on Templatic.
