Jigoshop Showcase #1 Angel Bean Baby Shoes

We love to see the great online shops which are being created using Jigoshop, and this is just the first blog post highlighting one of the amazing stores that has come to our attention. If you’ve gone live with an implementation of Jigoshop, and would like to be featured and promoted, email support@jigoshop.com

Angel Bean Soft Leather Baby Shoes – www.angelbean.co.uk

Angel Bean create soft leather baby shoes, and was inspired by Founder Bev giving birth to Dylan, her first child. With the help of web designer husband Alex, they’ve just launched the Angel Bean website in summer 2011. And it looks particularly nice.

Obviously the design reinforces the fact that the shoes themselves are pretty cute, and then selecting the Shop gives you the handy Categories Menu, and the always useful Tag Cloud. Alex, who built the site, has used other eCommerce plugins for WordPress, and very nicely says ‘Jigoshop has been by far the easiest and most pleasant to integrate. The themes are great (responsive!) and the backend has everything you’d need. So the overall integration was really easy.’

At the moment Angel Beans are using a grouped product to display the two available sizes for each shoe design, but with configurable products due to be released shortly, that’ll be made easier very soon. And not only have are the ‘You May Also Like’ lists encouraging us to buy several pairs of booties, but there’s a very nice and clean integration of sharing buttons for Facebook, Twitter, and Google +.

So if you’re looking for a lovely example of Jigoshop in a nicely-designed online store, or you have a young child or own on the way, it’s worth checking out Angel Beans. About the only thing they could add now is a Jigoshop bootie design!

    Bev, Alex & Dylan have done a great job with this. Love it, the customisations to the theme work really well and the identity as a whole is really nice.

    Good work you three, and JigoShop 🙂

    Fantastic love it !
    Any chance of getting the authors to detail the theme/integration process?

    I’d like to know how they got 2 prices of the same product on the product page.

    Might be a good way to add trade prices in.

      In this case, they actually created seperate products and then grouped them. But now everyone has Configurable Products with Jigoshop 0.9.9! You can find out more at https://www.jigoshop.com/blog/2011/09/12/configurable-products-arrive-with-jigoshop-v-0-99/ and there’s a guide to using the new feature in the documentation section

    @Dan – Was looking at group/ variables but it wasn’t working – obviously now the updates out this is a viable option.

    I’m needing to feature 2 prices – RRP and trade depending on your login permissions – was hoping this might solve things.
    Might need to tweak the templates using groups and user level permissions to display each price … or maybe not!
