Best WordPress Ecommerce Templates For Speed And UX

There are hundreds of ecommerce themes for online store owners to choose from. We looked at them for you, but only 59% passed Google’s mobile-friendly test.  The top ecommerce website themes we viewed are here, including free and premium themes.

1. Atelier

Atelier Theme

The word “atelier” means an artist’s workshop or studio, but this theme is designed for ecommerce stores of all sizes. More than 671 Google fonts, 5 page headers, 41 CSS3 animations, 3 product page options and 4 page layouts make this a very versatile theme. The design feel is elegant and minimalist. Social integration is available. BuddyPress, bb Press, and WooCommerce ready, the theme is also WPML-friendly.

What I love about this theme is the design flexibility, page builder and the add-to cart user experience.

2. Savoy

Savoy Theme

Savoy defines minimalist design. The simple, clean typography and focus on product images leaves a distinctly modern impression. Features of this WordPress theme include accordions, banners, Google Maps, feature boxes, lightboxes, blogs, testimonials, and more. It’s also AJAX enabled, WPML compatible, touch enabled, and retina ready.

4. Gear

Gear Theme

Clean, modern design with a minimalist feel and plenty of out-of-the-box features, Gear is one of our favorite ecommerce templates. The speed could improve, but in all, this is an attractive and easily-customizable theme.

View Demo

Price: $49.00

5. Walker

Walker WordPress Theme

A Builder child theme, Walker is designed for easy customization. You can adjust the layouts and widget areas, although there isn’t a drag’n’drop editor. Although coding isn’t necessary to use this theme, you can also insert your own HTML and live preview the CSS. Multiple modules can also be added, including one for content.

View Demo

Price: $80.00/theme, $150 for all Builder themes, or $197 for all Builder AND iThemes themes

6. Chic

Chic Theme

Chic offers a slick, modern design and minimalist design that’s responsive across devices. Loading time on desktops can be a little slow with this theme, and mobile is slower than we’d like, but what it lacks in speed it makes up for in style.

View Demo

Price: $69/theme, $199/annual membership for all ZigZag Press themes, $399/lifetime membership for all ZigZag Press themes

7. Karl

Karl WP Theme

Another Genesis theme from ZigZag Press, Karl is for the highly-visual shop. Like all Genesis themes, it’s SEO friendly. Translation and localization are easy using included .po and .mo files. The theme is also compatible with all browsers and is mobile ready.

View Demo

Price: $$69/theme, $199/annual membership for all ZigZag Press themes, $399/lifetime membership for all ZigZag Press themes

8. Shop

Shop Theme

Elegant, user-friendly, mobile responsive, and designed for WooCommerce, Shop also scales readily for growing stores. The downside to this theme is its loading speed on mobile and desktop, although clear typeface and professional polish make this a theme worth considering (assuming your online store is based on WooCommerce).

View Demo

Price: $69/theme, $99/all themes, $249/developer license for all themes OR $29/month for the hosted theme. Developer version is $249/year.

9. Handmade

Handmade Theme

Ideal for Etsy-sellers and others specializing in homemade goods, Handmade captures the artisan feel in 8 stylish homepages. The one page, seamless homepage design can work as a stand alone page for your online store or lead to other pages on a larger website. WooCommerce integrated with a 3 grid bootstrap system, it’s got more features than you’d expect from a site designed for smaller sellers. The parallax scrolling is a negative, but overall, it’s an attractive theme.

View Demo

Price: $60.00

10. Tiffany

Tiffany WP Theme

A graphic designer’s dream theme, Tiffany is all about blending visual elements into clean design. If you look for illegible font, you won’t find it with the beautiful, effeminate typography used in this ecommerce theme. Unlike many ecommerce WordPress themes, this theme offers a blog that’s just as beautifully designed.

11. Crux

Crux Theme

Where Tiffany is feminine, Crux is masculine. This bold and minimalist theme is retina ready and responsive across device types. Unlimited sidebars multilingual capabilities, and integration with top SEO apps make this attractive theme a solid pick – but speed is a problem. The slider doesn’t help the theme load any faster, either.

View Demo

Price: $59.00 with the option to include extended support for an additional $17. 63

12. Bronx

Bronx Theme

Sleek, modern, and minimalist to the extreme, Bronx screams urbanity. The theme is easy and intuitive to navigate, heavy on the images, and boasts an easy-to-use drag’n’drop editor. The unlimited homepage design and clean product layouts are stunning, but once again, there’s a slider widget that slows load time.

View Demo

Price: $61.00 with the option to include extended support for $18.38

13. Flourish

Flourish WP Theme

Three layouts, four templates, and a feminine touch are the characteristics of this Genesis ecommerce theme. 7 color schemes make it accessible across industries, and the theme is WooCommerce ready. The blog is just a s beautifully crafted. The only bad news? Flourish was retired recently.

View Demo

Price: $75

14. Jumbo

Jumbo Theme

Proud of its responsiveness across devices, Jumbo is a theme that is bold and modern, with a catch.  Although loading speed on desktops is moderate, the theme is slow on mobile devices. Several payment gateways are incorporated out-of-the-box for this theme, and the backend is a treat for anyone familiar with WordPress. Multipurpose design and 12 page layouts with flexible page design (including one page ecommerce solutions) make Jumbo a top contender.

15. Threads

Threads WP Theme

Designed using Builder, this theme is ecommerce ready. Four layouts and a bare-bones, sales-centric feel make this a bold theme for store owners using the Shopp ecommerce platform. Although it is mobile responsive, Threads is one of the slowest themes to load on mobile and still make the cut for our top 40 list.

View Demo

Price: $80 for the theme, $150 for all Builder themes, or $179 for all 80 iThemes AND Builder themes

16. Labomba

Lamboda Theme

One of the most customizable themes we reviewed, Labomba is a responsive and elegant theme designed for WooCommerce. The built in lookbook makes it a smart pick for fashion retailers. The drag’n’drop builder makes it easy for store owners who don’t code, too. Retina ready design and full responsiveness across devices are great features – we just wish it was faster. Like Threads, loading speed almost kept this theme off our list.

View Demo

Price: $59.00 for a regular license with an option to extend support to 12 months for an additional $17.63

17. Divi

WordPress Ecommerce Themes17

Used by more than 330,000 websites, Divi is an extremely popular theme. The strengths of this WooCommerce-ready and responsive theme include an advanced drag’n’drop editor, premade layours that are importable and exportable, and the ability to incorporate video backgrounds. Keep in mind that more bells and whistles can slow down the loading speed, but Divi’s clean code largely makes up for the speed loss from extra video, graphic, and scrolling effects.

Price: $89/year for all Elegant Themes or $249 for a lifetime license to all Elegant Themes

18. Handy

Handy WP Theme

Handy allows you to display products in featured categories, catalog thumbnails, as featured or special items, and more. Designed for WooCommerce, the theme includes rating and review features and gives you the ability to create your own marketplace where other vendors can also sell.

19. Patron

Patron WP Theme

A Genesis and Thesis powered theme built for use with WooCommerce, this theme is fully responsive. HTML5 and retina ready, the theme also offers several custom shortcodes and the backend is user-friendly, even for noncoders. One negative is the default slider layout for the homepage.

View Demo

20. ZerifPro

ZERIF PRO

Speed optimized with a live customizer and drag’n’drop builder, ZerifPro makes building a site relatively simple. Custom content blocks and movable sections make it easy to tailor the pages to your design desires, but be careful. This WordPress theme offers parallax which, despite being visually appealing, slows the loading speed.

View Demo

Price: $89 with 1 year of updates and up to 3 domains, $149 with 2 years of updates and up to 3 domains, or $249 for lifetime updates and up to 5 domains

21. Polaris

Polaris

This Shopify theme offers classic, clean design with a chunky, modern feel. Four background styles, multiple image gallery layouts, and an attractive integrated blog with rich snippet previews make this a decent theme. Larger stores may find the options limited, but smaller and mid-size retailers should be pleased with the feature options.

22. Amaryllis

24. Jevelin

Jevelin WP Ecommerce Theme

More than 40 shortcodes, Contact Form 7 integration, and mobile responsive design are key elements of this WooCommerce-ready WordPress theme. There is an option for parallax, but as you know, we advise against it. Jevelin’s speed is moderate, but it’s a decent theme for mid-size ecommerce shops.

Choose Your WP Theme Wisely

As you can probably tell from the list above, most of the top WordPress ecommerce themes offer comparable feature sets. Most also work exclusively with WooCommerce, although a few also let you work with bb Press or Buddy Press, too. Speed can help distinguish between themes to an extent, but most will give you control over features that can slow your site down, like Parallax or infinite scrolling and sliders.

You want a theme that delivers the basics, like responsive design, a blog, and scalability that meets your goals. There are dozens of themes that deliver these features. But you also want a theme that matches your aesthetic. How do you want your site to look? How should it feel to site visitors?

Use the list above to narrow down your ecommerce site theme choices to the ones that fit your store size and niche. From there, think about the feel of the site. Play with the demos and put yourself in your customer’s’ shoes. Which themes feel more professional to you? Which offer the flexibility you need? Are there any extra features you can’t live without?

Keep in mind that widgets can make up for what might be missing in function, but that the design you choose is what you’re committing to, unless you want to play with the CSS and HTML5. Choose wisely, and share your decision in the comments. Tell us which theme you went with, and why.
