I use Ebay Partner Network to monitize a large amount of sites in my own personal collection. Up until recently, I have used a combination of several of the themes I’ve developed as well as a few of my favorite free WordPress themes as a platform for creating sites specifically designed to be used with PHPBay Pro and the Search2Post plugin.
Recently I’ve started developing new WordPress themes specifically designed to take full advantage of the tools offered by PhpBay Pro. These themes will allow you to run a Blog that actually looks like an e-commerce site, instead of just stuffing eBay auctions into a regular WordPress theme. You’ll also still be able to enjoy all the regular benefits of having a Blog on your site, so it’s really the best of both worlds.
Right now, I currently have 2 different themes in development that will be part of the WP Commerce series. I plan on releasing the first in the next 2-3 days. This will be a lightweight theme that has an e-commerce feel, and will make your EPN blogs look a lot more like a shopping cart should. I’ve been testing the theme for about 2 months and I’ve already noticed a marked improvement in commission. Stay tuned for the release, and please take a moment to subscribe to my RSS feed. I have at least 3 more regular free WordPress themes I’ll also be releasing within the next 3 weeks!
