Darkroom London “curate[s] an eclectic mix of high-end fashion, interior and lifestyle accessories alongside bi-monthly art and sculpture exhibitions.” Like the physical store, the online store is superbly executed and high quality.
CartThrob was used on the Regional Food Group website, which was already running EE + MultipleSiteManager and a multitude of extensions. The biggest hurdle was the multiple product types: events, paid membership and physical products all available through the checkout process, each with different forms, pricing, taxation, weights and permissions.

Ripp’s Natural Market is a clean and elegant website that promotes products that are naturally good for people and the environment. Many sites that use CartThrob are built to handle very custom or unique stores with very unique product types & transaction styles.

Skyrta is one of the most impressive CartThrob sites done to date. Partially because it’s got hundreds of selectable options, and partially because it’s in freaking Japanese.
