Thank you for interest in having your store added to our our "featured shops" pages.
Below is a list of general guidelines that we use to determine if a store can be used on these pages:
- Please be aware that, as we grow, we have become increasingly selective about what stores are featured on these pages.
- In general, we prefer to include stores with minimal customizations and third party apps. Since the goal of these pages is to help give users a general idea of what can be created with our themes without complex customizations or apps, we prefer to showcase themes that make minimal use of these.
- Stores that have created visually appealing but unique looks that showcase the flexibility of our themes are preferred.
- Typically stores that use one of our preset theme styles with little to no modifications to fonts, colors or other settings will not be considered.
- Shops selling unique products or serving unique industries are a plus. Stores that fall into categories that we currently have less examples for are generally preferred.
- Another plus is stores that are using our built in theme settings and sections in unique or innovative ways since this helps us showcase the versatility of our themes.
- Stores featuring products or other content that is racist, hateful or features illegal or pirated products will be rejected automatically. Stores with adult or other mature content or that operate in regulated industries will be considered on a case by case basis.
- We are unable to honor requests for specific anchor text — in general, the store's formal name will be used.
Out of the Sandbox ultimately reserves the right to determine which stores are listed on this page, even if any or all of these guidelines are meant. We also reserve the right to remove pages from these lists at any time without notice as well as to classify stores into a category of our choosing.
In some cases, stores that do not meet these new requirements may remain listed, so the current list of stores is not necessarily indicative of what stores are accepted going forward.
Finally, please note that while links are, at this time, set up as "do follow" links, we reserve the right to change these to "nofollow" links at any time in the future without notice.
In general, having your site added to these pages for the sole purpose of creating "inbound" links for SEO purposes is not effective and stores that are submitted for this reason only will not be considered.
After reviewing the guidelines above, we welcome submissions that meet these guidelines to be submitted for consideration. Please use the subject line "Featured Shops Submission" using this form.
