With plugins such as WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads, you can create a powerful online business with WordPress for a very small budget, but not all themes are created equal of course so today’s list gives you our pick of the best e-commerce themes for WordPress, in terms of design and ease of use.
1. Stack – Multi-Purpose WordPress Theme with Variant Page Builder & Visual Composer
The first theme in our selection is our very own flagship WordPress theme, Stack, which has become one of the most popular themes available on ThemeForest in its relatively short life and is gaining more and more of a following with each passing week,
The reason for such demand? Flexibilty and stunning design of course. Its rare for a theme to offer a killer combination of modern, yet timeless design paired with genuine ease of use, and thanks for the provided Variant page builder this is well achieved. If your looking to setup a rich and eye catching shop Stack is not one to miss.
2. Pillar – Multipurpose Multi-Concept Responsive WordPress Theme
Our next pick is another from our Portfolio, this time with a more no-nonsense, sleek and minimal design in the form of Pillar for WordPresss.
Pillar represents the finest, quality design, courtesy of the genius’s from MediumRare – together with a familiar to use interface thanks for the bundled Visual Composer page builder. The theme is also packed with a full featured demo importer which can get you off the ground in just a few clicks, which means you can have your products live and in front of the world with with no delay.
3. Foundry – Multipurpose, Multi-Concept WordPress Theme
Foundry is one of our best-selling WordPress theme and with features such as a stunning portfolio, powerful and flexible shop and much more, its no surprise why.
The themes design is clean and unobtrusive, giving you the perfect canvas to make your own, and with the bundled plugins such as Revolution Slider and Visual Composer, you have all the tools you could need to make the online shop of your dreams.
4. BeStruct – Construction & WooCommerce WordPress Theme
BeStruct, as the name implies is a more niche affair that previous entries in this list, but im sure you will agree that given the right images and colours you could mould this to fit any niche you wish.
The theme is a breeze to get started with too, thanks to a sleek built in installation script which, once you have verified your purchase, will download and install the themes required plugins and import the demo data for you! The theme has a huge number of header and footer styles, as well as Visual Composer so adding your own flair is simple. BeStruct is a powerful and well designed theme overall and certainly worth you time checking out.
5. Cosre – Clean, Minimal WooCommerce Theme With Full Ajax Shop
If your looking for your shop to really pack the ‘wow factor’ then you cant go wrong with a fully AJAXed theme such as Cosre for WordPress.
The theme is a stunning mix of gorgeous design and sleek, refresh-less page transitions which is certainly a unique twist so its ideal for any fashion/boutiques out there. Cosre is also packed with extra plugins including Revolution Slider and Visual Composer and is compatible with WPML which means its easy to build with, however id suggest only using this one for smaller shops as you may find the AJAX effect becomes slow on very large inventories.
6. Techmarket – Multi-demo & Electronics Store WooCommerce Theme
Techmarket for WordPress could easily fool anyone to thinking your store is running on one of the more enterprise level e-commerce solutions such as Magneto, a rare feat indeed and one of the reasons iv picked this as our next entry.
Its safe to say Techmarket is the most business orientated theme today, however I think this helps give your site a very professional edge with no effort. As the name implied the theme is aimed towards the tech industry, but with some clever use of images you could easily use this for any niche.
7. Flower Shop – Florist Boutique & Decoration Store WordPress Theme
If your a florist, stylist etc – finding a theme which complements your business without coming across as too soft and fluffy can be very tricky, as these types of niche can tread a fine line between feminine and gaudy – thankfully Flower Shop by cmsmaster does the job perfectly.
The traditional design throughout the theme is the ideal starting point for any florist, simply add your products and a nice image and your all set! However thanks to Visual Composer (included free of charge) you can take things much further should you wish. Being from on the ThemeForest’s largest power-elite authors, you can also be assured this is a theme you can trust for a long time to come.
8. Precise – A Modern, Minimalistic Shop Them
Precise from DL Themes is a vibrant and modern theme which is perfect for anything from furniture to fashion and more. The themes overall look and feel is very stylish, with use of modern flat colours and bright imagery.
As with most premium WP themes, Precise is bundles with WP powerhouse, Visual Composer – which is packed with a host of bespoke blocks you can use to craft your pages as you wish. Although the theme is only a few weeks old at the time of writing, its already become one of the higher selling items on TF so if you want to jump on board and pick up a unique but beautiful theme for your shop you should check out the demo today.
9. Adorn – A Minimal and Stylish WooCommerce Theme
In a similar flavour to Precise (above) Adorn from Edge Themes is another fine example of muted tones and classic design with a modern twist.
In keeping with the current trend of premium themes for WP, Adore has Visual Composer at the core, however on top of this is a great on boarding experience thanks to the themes one-click demo importer and a host of custom shortcodes so your free to create however you feel most comfortable.
10. Rubino – Minimal & Creative WooCommerce Theme
The final theme in our list this month is a very traditional affair from the hedonistic YoloThemes (presumably with a name like that).
Rubino for WordPress is probable the most grounded entry today, which is why I think its perfect as a base for developers who want to take things above and beyond thanks to its unassuming design and inclusion of industry go-to, Visual Composer. Out of the box is a very ‘bootstrap’ affair but this is the perfect starting point if you so inclined, which is what makes Rubino a great choice.
