Custom template on 3dcart platform?

I’ve been lurking for a while, have had many, many questions answered in this and other forums (so thanks to all of you experts :slight_smile:

I am planning a website at the moment that will use 3dCart as the host/platform (for a variety of reasons). Besides simply using the free templates available thru 3D, what are my options for a custom site design? Obviously, from this question you can gather that I’m a noobie, and don’t have the skills (HTML/coding/etc.) to create the appearance which I desire. Can I use templates from sites like templatemonster & templates dot com? I also have the option of having the designers from 3dCart create a custom job, but it’s reasonably expensive. I’m not against spending money, but it’s my business to save money whenever reasonable, so I don’t want to spend $900-1300 if I can get away with spending $100. I’ve read several horror stories about the template site templates not ending up compatible with the functions of certain shopping carts. Can anyone verify?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

No responses thus far…i’ll shift gears a bit. Can anyone refer me to web designer that may have experience with 3dCart? PM me, if it’s against the forum rules to post ads.

I have worked with 3dcart for the past 10 years.
