This what I call a highway robbery and I would love to tell others not to waste there money for actual Shopify themes.. I can't believe I paid 180$ USD for a theme so bad compare to the one they sell at THEME FOREST.. Please avoid them at all cost

How do I get support for this theme. On Firefox the quantity box is mis-aligned.

Music Junkie Nov 27, 2018

Great looking and easy to use. Had a couple of queries, great support. Highly recommend.

David Hinds Ltd Nov 21, 2018

The theme is great. Nice simple clean layout with some great functionality built in and is highly configurable out of the box. Support is responsive and helpful when we've had incompatibilities with apps or needing a little bit of help to get a customisation over the line. Highly recommended.
