Is it possible to integrate Marketify with Google Maps similar how you’ve done in Jobify sample? For example, I would like to allow sellers to nominate their own locations (for pickup purposes) and to have those locations mapped using Google Maps – and locations searchable similar to how Jobify does it… Thanks.
It’s not possible out of the box, but a custom solution could definitely be developed. If you would like to get a quote we recommend http://werkpress.com

Hey there! Thanks for purchasing one of our themes! We can’t thank you enough. Just so you know all of our theme support is conducted through the Astoundify support forum, Head on over and we’ll get you the help you need by one of our support team.

So, what is included in the theme? What plugins are missing?
We aren’t like other authors who bundle plugins with themes, why don’t we bundle plugins with themes you ask? because it is a violation of the ThemeForest submission guidelines to bundle premium plugins in a WordPress theme.
There are a multitude of reasons to not include plugins with a theme.
1. It is in violation of the ThemeForest submission guidelines. We would never be able to list the theme, ThemeForest would pull this theme instantly from the marketplace just like they did with Bazar Shop from: http://themeforest.net/user/Sara_p/portfolio the theme is back but they had to remove all bundled plugins in their themes, read more here: http://coenjacobs.me/dont-buy-bundled-premium-plugins/
We are theme developers. We have created a theme for you that will let you create a fully featured Marketplace to compete with other digital marketplaces out there that others have spent hundreds of thousands or millions on.
We focus on making your site look good.
A different developer focuses on giving your site all the features. They wrote the marketplace plugins that we integrate with.
You wouldn’t ask the guy painting your house to wire up your electricity, would you? We didn’t think so. That’s why we focus on what we do best, and we let the marketplace plugin developers focus on what they do best.
You know who wins? You.
Thanks for reply.
Agree with the reasons.
One thing i would like to add here, is that from my experience with themeforest themes, many times i had so many problems setting up a theme: pages, custom pages, bad support, BUGS, etc and at the end i quit using that theme. So, money lost.
Buying a theme focused on premium plugins with different prices from $20 to $80, is like i’m paying $200 for a theme, which is totaly fine if the theme has great features and it’s easy to config.
Conclusion, I’m a little skeptical when i have to buy many other things after i bought the theme bcs i’m not sure everything will work like your demo on my server.
PS: Theme looks great, i will buy it
You won’t see bad support and themes full of bugs from us, we fix bugs if there are any in a timely manner and people love our support, example from a customer:
Im interested in purchasing the theme but it seems to be a little quirky when viewing the demo on my iphone. First, the product details on hover (buy now, details) are almost impossible to click. They disappear before I have a chance to click them. Second, the banners like “start your marketplace” are incredibly small on mobile. Shouldn’t they be more like parallax banner? Thanks guys!
In version 1.1.2 of the Marketify theme all issues you have suggested are improved. We hope for the next version of the theme to be released some time this week.
I would recommend adding your email to our mailing list or follow us here on Twitter for theme updates & here on ThemeForest for our new theme releases.
Thanks for the update. Ill check out the new theme and hope to make the purchase as soon as I know everything is working. Thanks!
Hey – looks like the theme demo is broken. Have been referred to this theme to buy so would be great to see it.
Let us know when it’s up.
Its working for us
were you moving servers or something? Couldn’t access it for about 2 hours but all good now thanks. We’ll check it out.
Yes, We moved to WiredTree – https://www.wiredtree.com/
Nice looking theme! It’s got some cool features and I like seeing themes based on Underscores
Having just tried the live preview / demo (stock photo) though, I’m somewhat surprised to see (what seems like) such rookie mistakes for an elite responsive theme. The “Buy Now” / “Details” / “Price” hover effect buttons on the home / front page are completely useless on touchscreen devices running iOS / Android OS running Safari / Chrome / Firefox.
Additionally, the hover / overlays also seem to effectively eliminate scrolling by touchscreen gesture. The visitor has to now realize that 90% of the width of the page (mobile phone / portrait mode) has been disabled for scrolling and only the white area on both the sides of the page will now allow scrolling. Whether this behavior is by design or not makes it even more clear to me that this theme was not designed as a mobile first item.
The audio / video pages are definitely much better executed on mobile though it could still be made more obvious what the visitor can / should do next after adding an item to the cart in the modal dialog that follows.
Thanks. That’s great to hear! I’ll keep it my collection then
Purchased! Looking forward to the update & physical products option…
Hi, great theme BTW!
Does the theme support customer shipping addresses and physical products?
If it does I’ll definitely buy the theme.
This is coming very soon! Follow us on Twitter and ThemeForest to stay updated.
Hi, can I sell physical products – not just digital? Basically, can I add in shipping as a criteria?
sorry did not scan the whoe thread.
does this product come with affiliate feature too?
If you want to use an affiliate system with the Marketify theme we suggest you use the Affiliates Pro integration https://easydigitaldownloads.com/extensions/affiliates-pro-integration-pack
thank Admin. checking it out now (Y)
can sellers set up their affiliate scheme using Affiliates Pro plugin for their products that hosted inside marketify theme?
Please ask the author of the Easy Digital Downloads plugin developer as that is what powers the shopping cart, and frontend vendor plugin.
You can contact them here:
I did and he said it’s not possible ..
Hello, congratulations for the theme. I bought it and I’m really satisfied. One question: I would like to add a white border around the product featured image (example of the image: http://themeforest.net/item/marketify-marketplace-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/6570786). Could you help me to understand how to do?
the link does not work, I hope you understand where to add the border
What’s the deal with your support forum? I signed up, entered my Purchase Code, looked at one topic, tried to look at another, then it wanted my Purchase Code again, i entered it again and got this message…
Sorry, this key is already in the database.
What the heck am I supposed to do?
Did you look at a topic that belongs to a different theme?
Say you search the forums for a topic lets say “Sliders” then click on a topic that is for the Jobify theme, then because you have not yet purchased this theme the message “Please Enter Your Purchase Code” will display. Then when you enter your code it says its already in the database.
Solution: Only click on topics that are apart of the Marketify theme.
I did a search for an error I was getting. So that’s possible. Thanks
We’d just like the design (HTML,CSS.JS) and the page templates and don’t want to build this on Wordpress. Are there any options?
There aren’t any options for an HTML/CSS/JS version of any of our themes.
Thanks for your interest.
I PURCHASED THE THEME…. LET YOU KNOW IF ANY QUERIES….
Just so you know all of our theme support is conducted through the Astoundify support forum, Head on over and we’ll get you the help you need by one of our support team.
Do you guys have any plans to create a rating system for authors? I think this is really important feature as people are concerned about buying items unless they are sure that the seller is legit. Much like how it is on themeforest. Seller ratings are so important as you guys know
Thanks for the suggestions, authors can already be rated on a product by product basis just like ThemeForest. Here is an example of a rating of an product just like ThemeForest: http://demo.astoundify.com/marketify/downloads/jobify-theme/#comments
Keep in mind you can allow only people that have purchased the item to leave comments.
I am looking forward to buying this theme, but I will absolutely need the physical product and shipping options. I see that they are coming, but do you guys have an idea of when?
I have a deadline of April on the website I want to use this theme for, so I’d like to get started soon and I am really wanting to use this theme!
Once its out we will let everyone know via twitter, facebook, email newsletter, we don’t have an exact date but it should be sometime this month.
Great. I do have one more question though. If I plan on only doing the physical products, should I get any of the easydigitaldownload plugins/extensions?
I know this is a bit of a dumb question, however I do know that I will still want things like the social login, reviews, recommended products, etc. Will there be plugins from another source that I should wait on, or should I get the bundle from Easy Digital Download?
The plugin will be released for free but will rely on Simple Shipping and Frontend Submissions by Easy Digital Downloads.
It sounds like you would benefit from the Bundle so I would definitely recommend that as it will save you quite a bit of money.
I need a customization in the theme, you do?
We don’t offer them but we have friends that do, we recommend our friends www.WerkPress.com to customize the Marketify theme or you could also use a different service such as http://www.microlancer.com/
Hope that helps!
Is it possible to sell services rather than products via your theme and recommended plugins.
I’d like to build a site that connect customers with suppliers who sell services, e.g. IT support, Web support, programming skills etc.
The customer would find the suppliers they are interested in, communicate with them within the system and pick the supplier they want.
They would then pay their fee for the service and we would take a commission from that fee.
Basically a cut-down version of Elance or oDesk etc. – that type of thing.
Does that make sense? Can the theme and plugins be used for that type of marketplace?
“Downloads as a Service” https://easydigitaldownloads.com/extensions/downloads-as-services/—This doesn’t quite implement a complete system, but instead removes the downloadable files for products.
So they could sell their service but it would then be up to the seller to get in contact with the person purchasing the service for details about completing the work.
hi I am looking forward to buy this theme few question is there a demo of backend admin?
and how does the review system work currently i can see that anyone can post a review is there anyway only buyers can leave review after purchasing the product?
You can see how the backend will work by installing the free Easy Digital Downloads plugin, regarding the reviews if you enable the feature you can turn off reviews so that only people who have purchased the product can leave a review, here is how the setting looks in the backend.
I’m encountering an issue with the overlay while viewing the site on an android phone with chrome.It displays the buttons and price but not the dark background which make it very difficult to see.
Did you report this issue to our developers via our support forum?
Use, by you or one client, in a single end product which end users are not charged for. The total price includes the item price and a buyer fee.
