I really want to use woocommerce on my laytheme but currently there's no support, I don't know why it doesn't work because woocommerce said they do support most of the current WP themes.
Will Laytheme ever support WooCommerce?
We do too! :)
Woocommerce support is currently being developed, but it will take some time to implement.
Until that day, if you really need an option then i would suggest you look into:
It is important to note that it is not fully supported as there are still
problems with the mobile version,
but it could prove useful to your needs
Thankyou for your patience, I hope this helps you
All the best
@Richard-Keith Hi, I am wondering if you could give a quick update regarding the development of woocommerce integration? How is it going, do you think it will be done soon? You know the holidays are coming and many small entrepreneurs are now entirely relied on online sales channels, so it would be really helpful if you could make the use of wocommerce possible with LayTheme. :)
I will be in touch with Armin within the next two days and hope to provide an update for you if i can! :)
Best wishes and Thank you for sticking with Lay Theme ( and your patience surrounding Woocommerce )
@Richard-Keith Thank you very much for your reply and looking forward to your update :)
In regards to Completion of Woo-commerce integration.
" That's really hard to say, I'm working on this everyday and there are many details to work on. It is really hard to estimate and it will be done when it is finished. We're working on it every day!."
@Richard-Keith thanks for getting back to me. It is good to know that you are working everyday on the Woocommerce integration. Thanks for the update!
@Richard-K any update? I think I will have to switch to another theme considering that we are talking about a woocommerce integration since 2016? Honestly I was quite enthusiastic about laytheme when Armin said there is a chance that WooCommerce integration will come this year. Now I started to feel there is basically no deadline set for this task, and I really need a webshop especially in this situation, and cannot afford waiting for it for another year, even 6 months would be very painful. I would be quite surprised if I am the only one. Why not hire someone who could help you developing the integration, I am sure you will have plenty of income to cover that after the integration is done.
Thank you for this post Lortnok, I think it's really important to hear this and get an understanding of what you and likely many others are thinking.
Im sorry if i haven't been as helpful as possible for this. Maybe you already know of these but i have to suggest it
Shopify buy buttons:
These may work for your needs until Woo-commerce integration is here,
I would really love to keep you on the Side of Lay Theme however i fully understand if you need to look for other options & if no true deadline is set i can see your point of view clearly
Just wanted to write this to connect and also wish you a happy 2021, thank you for your thoughts and when we can provide what is needed for you to stick with lay Theme, you will be back on this forum once more :)
Sincerely, with best wishes
Hey @lortnok I'm working on it. It will surely take less than 6 months.
If you need to make sure you sell as early as possible and don't want to wait you can of course use a different solution, like squarespace or shopify or something like that!
I believe you guys are doing a great work with Laytheme nevertheless I also agree with @lortnok about not even having a deadline or an official ETA for its release. This would be rather a mature step for Laytheme but also an honest way of communicating to people so they are not on the limbo of either just waiting for this to happen or take the decision to move the content to another platform.

yes @umdoistres you're right.
i'm doing my best, a few months ago I told everyone it will take a few months but then I realised it is more work than expected.
in my experience oftentimes development takes longer than expected and is hard to estimate because new challenges keep popping up
i'm posting stories on my instagram @laytheme about the progress and i'm sorry it takes so long
if you'd ask me now how long it will take and you'd really need a deadline I'd say end of March or mid-March
thanks for the reply @arminunruh - we know you are doing your best - on my side I just think its the lack of info regarding the roadmap of the project that causes uncertainty.
I just saw your update on laytheme's instagram regarding the integration, whats done and future work - thanks for providing that info - And... its looking great! I'm really excited about its release - it will add a lot of value to the theme! congrats!
@umdoistres yes of course , I also appreciate the hard work, but to be realistic, if the integration will be released in March, it will likely to be a beta with glitches and, will take some time to really get a usable woocommerce integration. I am not here to complain, just wanted to say this for others, and suggest to not expect a fully working integration when it is released. Why do I think this? Well if I look back at the previous releases and upgrades, there were almost always glitches in the beginning and took some time to fix them. but hey, I guess it's normal especially when the development is done by a very small team.
Just to conclude, I bought Laytheme as a porfolio site template, and I have to tell that it worked perfectly for that purpose. My needs have been changed, that is why I was very happy to hear the good news about the Woocommerce integration a year ago or so. If this could have been done a little more quickly then there would be no reason to switch from Laytheme. Its not just about how much time it takes to get the integration done, but logically if it takes this long then it will also take quite some time to fix the issues.
