Shopify announced the launch of new themes and a new plugin for WordPress to make it easier to sell on WordPress sites.

Both the themes and plugin are free. You can use them to add products to any of your pages or blogposts without leaving the content management platform.

"As usual, you’ll still manage all of your pages and posts in WordPress, but you’ll have Shopify to manage everything else: payments, secure checkout, shipping and fulfillment, inventory, and taxes—all the hard things about selling online," says Shopify's Daniel Patricio.

The themes are called Hype by Themezilla, Simple by Themify, and Pulse by Ultralinx. You can see them below in that order.

"Installing the plugin adds the ability to easily drop products with buy buttons into any sidebar, page or blog post," says Patricio. "Plus, you’ll get a slick pop-out shopping cart for your site, so customers can purchase multiple products at once."

While the plugin is free to Shopify users, it does cost $9 a month for a "lite" Shopify plan. The plan will also get you Facebook Shop, Shopify POS for iOS or Android, access to the Shopify app store, and 24/7 support.
