The layout of the simple store cannot be changed, it will stay the same. You cannot, say, change the categories from horizontal to vertical or change the number of items in one page displayed.

For a flexibility in customizing, you should concentrate over your own site. To put categories on the left add the following construct to your shop page:

<div style="overflow: hidden;">
    <div style="float: left; width: 220px;">
    <div style="float: left; width: 700px;">
Now go to Ecwid control panel, Dashboard page, find the code for vertical categories menu, copy it and paste into your page where it currently says LEFT.

Now from Ecwid control panel, Dashboard page, copy the code of the first widget, the Product Browser. Put it into your page where it currently says RIGHT.

This way you will have vertical categories to the left of the product browser.
