We have long time no release any new WooCommerce Themes, till today, I’m so happy to tell you that our new WooCommerce Theme Arovane is almost finished! About 7 months ago, we spent 3 months to browse the topics in many E-Commerce groups on Facebook and collect the pain spots which are not covered by the exist WooCommerce themes in the WordPress market. Once we knew what issues we should to fix that will bring the shopkeepers more useful features and better using experience, We intended to address all of them eagerly.
Although currently I can’t list all unique features before we release Arovane theme, I couldn’t hold my hand leave away from the keyboard, so just let you know what pain spots will be fixed by Arovane Theme. In this first part of Make Arovane Theme Different Collection, we talk about Digital Product Support in WooCommerce Theme.
Overlooked WooCommerce Product Type: Digital Product
Maybe you know WooCommerce supports both physical products and virtual products selling, but when a client asked me to suggest him any good WooCommerce themes which are suitable for selling digital downloads, I recommended him two of our EDD themes: DGWork and Dew, but they are based on another powerful E-Commerce plugin: Easy Digital Downloads so that can’t meet his requirement. Because he had already purchased some WooCommerce extensions. I was immediately searching on Google and ThemeForest, checking the demos of those top sellers WooCommerce themes.
Absolutely, those themes are very powerful with plenty of beautiful pre-designed demos, but no one is very suitable for selling digital downloads. Although the product page design looks perfect for the physical products, but… let’s say if I want to sell the video or audio files, then a media player is needed for previewing the video or audio in the product page, right? How to do that?
Specially Design For Digital Product Page
We noticed that the common solution is use the third party plugins to insert the player to the product description. Well, good job, but not perfect. We enhanced the product page for selling digital products in Arovane theme, I can’t say more until Arovane theme is released, but you can enjoy the following GIF screenshot, and guess how we specially design for showing digital product?
Please stay tuned to Make Arovane Theme Different collection, I will let you know more surprises which Arovane Theme will bring to you!
