As Out of the Sandbox gets closer to revolutionizing the Shopify theme scene (again), you might be wondering just how this latest release will make its mark on the Shopify platform. Well, get ready to lift off with us as we lead the way again in these arenas:
An offering that’s built with large stores (including ones with high volume and extensive inventories) in mind.
A special eye to the performance and functionality that Shopify Plus stores need.
An offering that’s flexible enough to be used on stores of all sizes or any Shopify plan level.
An incredible array of options and configurations that’s almost unheard of in Shopify themes, but, at the same time, still well organized and thought out to give store owners maximum flexibility while still being easy to use.
Conscious decisions to improve user experience for stores with large product lines.
A special eye to site performance and how this affects your bottom line.
Multiple design and layout options and formats for showcasing all of the great content you create — whether it be products, collections, blog posts or information pages.
Ability to showcase stunning photography and detailed text without sacrificing site performance.
More flexible design options for commonly requested features — that no longer require custom development or code tweaking.
Integration of the latest Web design trends to give stores the freshest possible look.
A continued dedication to support for store owners directly from the people who develop, design and code the themes.
It’s going to be an exciting time for Out of the Sandbox and Shopify store owners, so get ready for an exciting ride!
