choosing a theme - parent vs child: which is which

Hello. I'm getting confused. I see marketpress, framemarket, simplemarket, & gridmarket.

Which is the parent theme and which is the childtheme?

Where on the site can I find a list of ecommerce themes? Are these the parent themes? Do I find child themes somewhere else?

    Hey there.

    MarketPress is a plugin.

    SimpleMarket is a parent theme.

    FrameMarket is a parent theme

    GridMarket is a child theme of FrameMarket.

    Themes are themes, MarketPress is a plugin which utilises custom post types and so should function just fine in any theme which follows WordPress standards they don't need to specifically support MarketPress unless they are doing something custom.

    For example GridMarket can be a normal theme but it's also got special options for use with MarketPress.

    Take care.
