Adding an eCommerce Store

Border lets you easily add an eCommerce store inside your website and easy sell your posters, t-shirts or any other related products. Each page is carefully designed to maintain the same enjoyable and seamlessly experience that makes this theme such a success.

Note that this solution is aimed at photographers/designers that have a few products to sell. That’s why, to declutter the default WooCommerce design interface, we dropped the support for some features that we considered worthless for such a store (eg. reviews, search).

Step 1 – Install the WooCommerce plugin

In order to set up the online shop and start selling your products, you’ll need to install and activate the WooCommerce plugin.

Step 2 – Configure the Image Sizes

Before adding any products, based on your layout width, make sure you set the right image sizes by going to WooCommerce → Settings → Products → Display → Products Image area. We use the following sizes:

If you changed the Products Images settings after you had already added your images and you want the new values to be applied on your old images, you may want to use Force Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to regenerate them.

NOTE: Don’t forget to enable WooCommerce support by going to Appearance→ Customize→Theme Options→ WooCommerce.

All the general aspects regarding WooCommerce should be handled through their documentation and support.

Make Money with Border

By adding the Printful service, you can automatically print and sell your posters, t-shirts and more without lifting a finger. You can learn more about it by visiting their official Guide.
