    2Bop started as a way to turn a passion for video games into a form of expression, drawing inspiration from popular corner shop games when gameplay was key and graphics were a bonus.

    The company was formed by Anthony Smith & Bradley Abrahams.

Design stuff

  • Logos

    Brand your store by uploading your logo & other images: it's the 1st step towards breathing your identity into a selected theme. All images are available on your store immediately, and can be changed anytime should you want a fresh coat of paint at a later stage.

    Go e-commerce

    Customise your store further by uploading 'buy now' icons & 'cart' icons to brand all the smaller details of checkout process that really matter.

    Go browser

    Break away from the crowd by uploading a favicon to customise the browser-bar, favourites tab & other browser-specific areas.

    Go mobile

    Quickly & easily upload an Apple Touch Icon to ensure your store looks the part on iOS devices. iPad & iPhone, we're talking about you.

    Your logo defines you.
    logo
  • Colours & palettes

    Establish your brand further by fine-tuning the colors of your selected theme to suit your requirements. Critical areas - the stage, canvas, text and link colours amongst others - are setup as 'targets' and can be customised to your liking.

    Go easy (on the palette)

    Play around with the built-in color picker and change the colors of almost anything to almost anything that works for you. Change it back easily & quickly if it doesn't.

    Fine-tune colours to create your palette.
    colours
  • Fonts

    Style the typography of your store according to how you see things play out: choose any of the built-in fontstacks to quickly change the typography to something that fits with your brand. Go clean & simple, or grungy & left-field - it's entirely up to you how to position your store. As long as you keep it legible you'll be OK.

    Go web-safe

    We natively support all web-safe fonts: Arial, Helvetica, Georgia, Verdana and more. Everything just works; out of the box. (Except for Comic Sans: you're on your own there.)

    Go experimental

    Fancy something fancier? We support the CSS3 @fontface rule too: integrate effortlessly with Typekit and many other standards-compliant foundries and use real fonts on your store.

    Style up the typography of your store.

  • Themes

    Vertical or horizontal layouts, fixed nav, & more.

    Roll your own theme Coming soon!

    Know your HTML from your CSS? You can design & build your own theme with our simple, robust theming engine & templating language. Think simple-as-Tumblr theming, only for fully transactive, online stores.

    What to expect from our theming engine

    Get to grips with our powerful templating language, simple formatters, all the available variables, widgets & default snippets to design & build the theme of your dream. Add dynamic settings like images (logos & images), sizes (image sizes), css (external CSS), js (external JavaScript), html (HTML areas), booleans (yes/no), colours (hex values) and fonts to allow full & on-the-fly customisation of your own theme.

    Themes are designed in such a way that everything fits in a single file; making it easy to build, maintain & fork. We've implemented sensible defaults for almost everything allowing you to get away with very few template or HTML tags – so you can focus primarily on the styling, not the coding.

    iPhone

    Mobile first

    Choose any of our mobile first, responsive themes to jump-start your new online store. They all work beautifully across a wide range of devices; including iPad, iPhone & other mobile devices.

  • Easy content editing

    Editing any content with the content Hud is similar, & in many aspects better, than editing content with a word processor on your desktop: there is no need to learn HTML or another markup language.

    While you are editing content certain options spring up to allow you to easily format text, link text, switch syntax & even upload images live to the content area you are working in.

    Managing online content has never been this easy.

    Live content HUD

    Click into this content area to test the selection, insertion & switching aspects of the content HUD. Add your own content, or select content within this area to activate the HUD.

    Try this on a modern desktop browser. Mobiles don't (yet) support the features required for WYSIWYG html editing.

    Edit HTML without needing to know HTML
  • Drag 'n drop images

    Drag 'n drop images directly from any folder on your desktop to any
    drop-zone in the app. We'll do the rest: store them, size them, thumb-nail them & slide-show them.

    Finally: an image-management work-flow that works.

    Live drop-zone

    Select images to upload or drop images here.

    Try this on a modern desktop browser.
    Mobiles don't (yet) support the features required for drag and drop image uploads.

    Dead-simple image management
  • Beautiful slideshows

    Create lovely slideshows from any collection of images in seconds by tapping into Sideburn - a next-generation jQuery slideshow widget.

    The content in the slideshow will automatically adapt to fit anywhere you place it, and the content below it will adapt to fit as you interact with it.

    You can use it as is or fine-tune the
    speed, type, nav & style of the slideshow to suit your store.

    JavaScript

    Get more out of your store with built-in support for major Javascript libaries — or simply add your own.

In a nutshell it's unlimited, uncapped & unmetered. Unreal, compared to other services out there.

And we really mean "everything"…

There isn't a setup fee involved.

Do I need a credit card to sign up?

No credit card is required to sign up; all you need is an email address.

Can I cancel at any time?

What plans are available?

There is only one plan available: the unlimited one. Let's keep things nice & simple.

What billing options are available?

You can select either a monthly or yearly billing interval once your store starts transacting.

How many stores can I create?

As many as you require; we don't limit the amount of stores you can create.

And you only start charging me once my store starts transacting?

We'll charge you when you enable a payment provider to allow real transactions on your store.
(This means you can take as long as you want to build your store as its effectively free until sales start coming in.)

How will you charge me?

Through your selected payment provider: PayPal or Payfast.

How much is it again?

$99/yrR999/yr for pretty much everything*.
(We don't support monthly payments at this stage.)
