Drive sales on autopilot with ecommerce-focused featuresSee Features
If you’ve already taken the leap into ecommerce, you know how profitable an online store can be. Buying products online is simply more convenient than going to a physical store—particularly in the age of COVID-19.
As ecommerce continues to grow, it’s critical to keep your online store updated with new elements to keep your store a top performer that attracts customers and keeps their interest.
New elements like WooCommerce plugins or themes.
As the most popular CMS in the world, WordPress offers an unparalleled collection of themes and plugins. WooCommerce is a free WordPress plugin that makes it easy to turn your website into a fully functional online store.
Let’s take a look at some of the best WooCommerce themes and templates to help you find the perfect fit for your online shop.
What to look for in a WooCommerce Theme
Every WooCommerce template is different, and what works for one website may not work as well for another. With that being said, there are a few basic features that you should look for in any new theme.
To find the best WooCommerce themes, look for:
- Mobile friendly: First, make sure that any theme you’re considering offers strong support for both desktops and mobile devices.
With most ecommerce sales occurring on mobile, you can’t afford to use a theme with any compatibility issues in 2023.
- Fast and light: Loading times and other metrics are also critical for maximizing sales. Visitors will only give your site a few seconds to load before looking somewhere else, and you don’t want to lose any orders to technical hiccups.
While heavy text, different shortcodes, extra features and elements might add to your site’s visual design, it’s also important to consider their effect on performance.
- Supports your customers, wherever they are: If you sell to an international audience, you’ll also want to look for a theme that provides support for multiple languages and currencies.
Along with credit and debit cards, make sure to consider alternative payment methods. For example, PayPal, cryptocurrency, and mobile wallets.
Remember that each new payment method increases the size of your potential audience.
- Integrates well with your current stack: Finally, don’t forget to look for a plugin that will integrate with the rest of the features and plugins on your online store.
This includes WooCommerce itself. Most themes should play nicely with WooCommerce. However, it’s a good idea to look for one that specifically mentions the ecommerce platform.
Of course, you know the needs of your online store better than anyone else. Before paying for a new theme, take some time to browse reviews and see what other users liked and disliked about the theme.
Don’t hesitate to contact the developer directly if you have questions about specific features or compatibility concerns.
