Most of the WordPress Ecommerce Themes listed here are available from Theme Forest, please click through here to see full details.
All are Responsive mobile friendly themes unless indicated, most support WooCommerce and WP Commerce plugins. All have a 5 or 4 star rating. All tested in a browser and then on a small screen HTC Wildfire smartphone.
Some things to bear in mind when choosing a new theme,
- don’t just check the frontpage, delve down and drill through a shopping experience, not everything that glitters is gold!
- a lot of themes will come with multiple sliders and option to turn off particular page elements, so a few changes in the configuration can make it look quite different from the default look,
- lot’s of options isn’t necessarily great because it can make setup complicated, better choose a theme which you like the look of as is, rather than choose one which is over flexible and then spend a huge amount of time setting it up,
- get the feeling that these themes look similar to eachother? Checkout the features table (in preparation) to compare.
