20 Of The Best WooCommerce Themes for 2015

January 21, 2016


WooCommerce is an extremely popular eCommerce platform, despite being just a plugin for WordPress. Why? First of all, it’s a plugin for WordPress, and not just for any other CMS. So, if you know WordPress, you know WooCommerce. It inherits WordPress’ ease of use, extendibility and an incredible number of third party plugins – both free and premium.

Another peculiarity of WooCommerce is the ability to publish affiliate and external products out of the box. When using other eCommerce solutions, you have to purchase a separate extension or hire a professional developer to enable this function.
If you are stuck at the stage of choosing a design for your WooCommerce store, we are here to help you. We have prepared a roundup of 20 of the best WooCommerce themes designed by professional theme suppliers. You cannot go wrong by choosing one of them as a design for your future store.

12. Galleria

12-Galleria

Galleria is another WooCommerce design by WooThemes based on one of their parent themes (Storefront, to be precise). And since Storefront is free, and Galleria costs only $39, it may be considered a very beneficial offer. But what’s under the hood? As with Storefront, Galleria is very minimalist and content-centered. What makes it different from its parent theme is that the preview images are considerably larger, making it more convenient for use with clothing stores. The typography has been improved too. In all other respects it is the same Storefront, but it is definitely worth its price.

Because of its unusual design, Artificer has been featured in a large number of free WooCommerce theme roundups. It is built on WooFramework, though it is independent, and not a child theme. Artificer is one of the few themes that don’t need flat design to look beautiful. All its elements – textures, buttons, and post backgrounds – are organically united into one solid design.

Actually, we have no idea why this WooCommerce theme is called ‘FlatShop’.
