    Hello! I’ve recently heard about your software and decided to check it out! I am a freelance photographer and I have a question on the compatibility of the third-part WordPress themes with the Symbiostock plugin. Thing is that I already have a WordPress theme from http://www.templatemonster.com installed on my photo gallery website and I want to sell my works online. Is Symbiostock plugin compatible with TemplateMonster themes? Or do I need to buy a layout from you to be able to install and apply this plugin? Thanks in advance!

    Hey Zoe,

    Symbiostock does not involve itself in the front end very much at all and basically operates through WooCommerce. So if your theme is compatible with WooCommerce, then it will work fantastic with Symbiostock.

    Worst case you can try it out and see how it goes.

    As for buying a theme from us – you can do that, or you can get any third party theme that works with WooCommerce. Even the built in themes that come with WordPress work with WooCommerce and Symbiostock, but they don’t look that great.

    Hey Robin!

    Thanks a lot for your reply! I think I’ll stick to my existing theme for the time being, but I’ll keep in mind it’s possible to purchase an item from you as well. I haven’t yet set up the WooCommerce on my website, but I’m about to do that because I’m going to sell some of my most popular pieces of photography. Is there a possibility of having a free trial of Symbiostock plugin so that I could test drive it myself prior to buyin’?

    Thanks again!

    Zoe, the Symbiostock plugin is free. And WooCommerce is free as well. No need to buy anything.

    Oh, my bad, I must’ve confused Symbiostock with several other paid plugins I’ve been checking out.  Thanks! 😉  Yeah, I know that WooCommerce is free 🙂 But I have to educate myself a little on the eCommerce yet.  And I guess I’m not quite awake…

    What’s your experience of using Symbiostock, Redneck?

    In short, it’s the best available option out there. Period. Not only is setting up your own image selling website easy yet highly customizable but also the potential participation in symzio.com as central hub agency is a huge plus. And it’s free. No risk beside putting a little effort into it.

    Zoe,

    I started with another paid theme I had been using. The Symbiostock plugin worked fine. It doesm’t take long to set it up and get it going. In fact, you should have it set-up and working in about 15 minutes.

    Fine tuning or tweaking it to your site will take more effort, but that is up to you as to what you want your new “store” to look like.

    I was never totally happy with the theme I had, so I did switch to Symbiostock Express. When I made the change, there was no problems with the plugin.

    Oh, that sounds interesting to me… I was actually planning to put up another website soon, so I might actually go with Symbiostock themes from the very beginning. I really appreciated that you’ve shared your experience! I checked out this theme and it seems to be designed like a Bootstrap theme which is in at the moment.

    I researched other options such as WordPress Sell Media  and Shopfiy before switching to the Symbiostock plugin.  I must say Symbiostock is truly designed for selling stock media, very impressed with its ease of use.

    As for the theme, I purchased the Vega theme before deciding to go with Symbiostock.  It required a minor code change but no regret so far.

    Looks like a fantastic theme – anything WooCommerce compatible will work beautifully with Symbiostock.

    Can’t access your site though – maybe DNS is switching over?

    Zoe,

    The demo site using Symbiostock Express is here in case you don’t know.

    http://demo.symbiostock.com/

    my site is based on this theme. So far feel good.
