Closer look at the Smart Offers Theme
The Smart Offers theme is the first to support all four offer types that Smart eCart supports. That means Smart Offers is perfect for those sites wanting to sell traditional products and daily deals, or even those wanting to offer crowd funding opportunities for their group buying site — the possibilities are up to you.
Smart Offers let’s you make your site unique from any other.
The default homepage has edge-to-edge images of your offers which are featured with a cool parallax effect when scrolling, as well as multiple sliders to show your site’s offers. Since Smart eCart allows you to select any page as your homepage you can do just about anything, including building a custom template or one of the many included. If you want to increase newsletter signups than the subscription template could be used as a replacement to the default homepage.
Smart Offers comes with a flavor selector with 16 unique options. Want a darker theme try the Superhero flavor, or Curuean for something more fun. Similar to other Smart eCart themes Smart Offers can be fully customized with your own child theme or by using the customizer that updates the styling of your site live as you make color selections.
Top five features you won’t find in most other Smart eCart themes:
Publish deals, projects, products and/or downloads all on one site.
Project sponsors or customers can have a profile that shows their activity within the site.
3. Improved offer management for Merchant/Sponsors
Businesses or sponsors that submit offers to your site can now edit and manage their own offers and view pending offers within their dashboard.
4. Faster registrations
By default, usernames are not a registration requirement, instead Smart Offers uses the e-mail address.
5. Offer updates
Offers can have updates that notify sponsors/purchasers — a great way to keep sponsors and customers up-to-date.
As you can tell the Smart Offers theme provides a lot and not everything is covered above. We hope you take the time to review the demo as an admin, user and merchant to find out more.
We have a lot planned for the new default theme for Smart eCart, so stay tuned to the blog for news about future updates.
