I am a newbie. i have built a simple marketing site using a WP Avada theme.

I want to build a new ecommerce site. I found a layout i like that was built on the bd starter theme by underscores_me, an Automatic group.

Hi Rick,

If you anticipate using a starter-based theme without programmatically altering it, I would expect it to be easy enough to use--though since I can't find documentation about the theme and therefore can't give it an evaluation, I can't say this for sure. It might take some time to study the back-end (the dashboard), so that you might be able to use the theme's features to your site's potential--again, since I don't have documentation about the theme, I can't say anything more detailed.
