Introducing The ShopKeeper WordPress e-Commerce Theme

ShopKeeper WordPress Free e-Commerce Theme

We're extremely happy to introduce to you, dear readers, our latest free WordPress e-commerce theme. Say hello to the ShopKeeper Theme! ShopKeeper is a smart, minimal theme made for online shopkeepers. It is designed to get out of the way and let your products shine in the limelight. It is based on Journalist by Lucian E. Marin whose development ceased in 2008.

Theme Features

  • Clean, minimal and stylish
  • 2-column layout and widget-ready sidebar
  • Support for WordPress 3.x
  • Includes a custom category template so that your products show in categories automatically
  • Styled to work elegantly with DukaPress

Custom category template
The theme includes a custom category template - category.php - which makes it possible for all your category pages to show your products in the grid view format, like this. The benefit of this is that you do not have to create new pages for each new products category in your shop - it just works!

The theme also includes a category template for normal blog posts named category-1.php in case you want to use that. Note that this category template will automatically be used for the category with category ID = 1. Hint: you can change the name from category-1.php by replacing the "1" to correspond to any other category ID.


As usual, we encourage you to “look under the hood” to see just how easy it is to create DukaPress themes. Pay particular attention to functions.php, category.php and style.css. Please note that this theme is designed to work with the DukaPress WordPress plugin.

The shipping/delivery module on the live demo is powered by our Shipping Pro DukaPress Addon. Shipping Pro enables you to offer delivery services to custom locations, but it is not limited to custom locations, you can offer custom shipping packages like so:

  1. is there a way to extend it to include menus on both side bars and footer? any feedback will be highly appreciated

    • Yes the theme can be extended to be almost anything but you would probably need someone who knows his/her way around themes to develop a solution for you. We can help if you are interested.

  2. This is a beautiful theme! My sister will love it right out of the box, she needs something minimal and sleek.

    Me, I want more ornate for my site, and it’s easy to “redecorate” via css.

    Thank you!

    • You’re very welcome! I’m glad you liked it. Please let us see the “redecorated” version

      • I think I spoke too soon! What I find is that I really need the entire functionality of the twenty-ten header, and I’m finding it way difficult to merge the two together. I’m going to spring for your duka-press styles plugin instead. 🙂

        And I am looking forward to the multisites plugin, any ETA on that?

        I’m emailing you with some other questions 🙂

  3. Just a short note to thank you for the download, REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR FREE OFFER
