Amazon is a prime example of an e-commerce website.
You browse products in the Amazon store, order the ones you want, pay by credit card and they get delivered. You have confidence in the process.
But Amazon makes no product and they sell through an army of affiliates. Some products they stock (FBA - Fulfilled by Amazon) and the rest is drop shipped by their suppliers. With drop shipping, you don't have to store any inventory. You advertise product, your customer orders and pays for it and you order it from the supplier, who ships it to your customer.
It all works smoothly for Amazon because they have software and systems in place to handle it all. Well, guess what? You can do the same. You can create an e-commerce website. This is how.
I've been an enthusiastic user of Thrive Themes and Plugins for nearly three years and wouldn't be without them.
I believe that they are the best WordPress themes available and are the first, and frequently the only set of business themes and plugins I install on a new WordPress site.
The 10 WordPress business website themes that you have access to as soon as you install Thrive are the best conversion optimized WordPress themes available.
This article will take a quick look at each of them.
