The shopping cart is designed to use your themes color scheme to it can blend in with your site.
You should be able to override the CSS though.
open the “wp_eStore_style.css” file and find the following:
Now try modifying it to something like the following:

Well, made the modification above, but it doesn’t seem to have made any change…
Any other ideas?June 4, 2010 at 4:22 am #21242amin007Participant
There was an error in the code that I gave you (a semi colon was missing). I have updated the above thread.. please try the suggested code now and it will work.
Just so you know… for the above example, the text color will be black and the background color will be white. You can change it to any color by using the corresponding hex color code.June 4, 2010 at 2:22 pm #21243Ren2010Member
Thank you so much! This worked perfectly.
Thanks again for your help!January 11, 2011 at 6:44 pm #21244JaneMember
This is useful, and helped lead me to my solution, but the big problem I had is with link colors in the shopping cart. I didn’t realize the links colors were hard-wired into the shopping cart CSS. I just assumed they would echo the theme and hadn’t checked after I changed the theme.
I fixed it by adjusting the CSS, but it would be really nice if there was something in the plugin settings…where you set the images and such for the shopping cart…to adjust those colors as well.
Thanks again for a great product.May 15, 2013 at 5:28 pm #21245
How do I change the background color of the wp estore fancy 2 add to cart box. I’d like it to match the theme background color of light yellow. #F8FFC7 I see several background colors in the css under fancy 2 and don’t know which one or ones to change.

The following should do the trick. Just paste it into the “wp_eStore_custom_style.css” file:

A great day to you!
That didn’t work. Could it be because the editor page says inactive???
If so, how do I change it to active?
If not, what’s next?
Thank you!May 17, 2013 at 12:37 am #21248wpCommerceModerator
wp_eStore_custom_style.cssfile looks empty so you really haven’t done what peter suggested above.
Please do the following if it is easier for you:
1. connect to your site via FTP (example: Filezilla).
2. Browse to the eStore directory (
3. Download the
wp_eStore_custom_style.cssfile on your computer.
4. Open it using a text editor, add your custom CSS and save it.
5. Upload it back to your server (
wp-content/plugins/wp-cart-for-digital-products/).May 17, 2013 at 11:44 pm #21249
Hi, I did what Peter suggested but it didn’t work so I took it out.
I’m new to this and when his suggestion didn’t work I went in to the sytle.css and figured out how to make the changes in border colors, backgrounds, etc. on a hit/miss basis.
Also discovered firebug and that has made making more changes even simpler. Thank you for your assistance and a great plug in!!!!May 17, 2013 at 11:55 pm #21250adminKeymaster
Glad to hear that. Maybe this firebug tutorial will help you:
