My friend is transferring his whole shop from BigCommerce and will be using WordPress as a complete CMS platform. I am going to help him through the transition. I've experienced modifying WordPress themes and using plugins and such. Would it just be the same with an ecommerce site? What are the things that I should take into consideration?
My plan is just to look for a suitable ecommerce WP theme in ThemeForest and buy it. Should I look for something that uses a particular plugin? (Is the WP e-commerce plugin really reliable? What other plugins can you recommend?) Also, once I buy the theme, is the plugin already included or is this something I buy separately?
