WordPress makes it pretty easy to setup an eCommerce website or an online store. You can rely on a trusted plugin such as WooCommerce, and have your eCommerce website ready within minutes. Plus, if you need something extra, you can enhance your site by means of extensions and addons. However, what about eCommerce WordPress themes? Which one should you pick for your site?
However, it has been sometime since we did a roundup about the latest eCommerce WordPress themes. How about something related especially to the latest such themes, that have had recent updates and are rising steadily in popularity?
In this roundup, I have put together 10 of the best free eCommerce WordPress themes. All of the themes in this roundup are responsive and play well with most of the popular eCommerce plugins, such as WooCommerce.
1. Storefront (Demo)
Storefront comes from Woo Themes, the same folks behind the WooCommerce plugin. As such, you can expect seamless integration with WooCommerce and its various extensions.
Storefront offers a clean design, multiple layouts, custom page templates and even supports RTL languages. It is a fairly popular free eCommerce WordPress theme, with over 60,000 active installations.
Shop Isle is a multipurpose WordPress theme primarily meant for eCommerce sites. It is based on Bootstrap, and comes loaded with support for plugins such as Meta Slider.
The theme relies heavily on Parallax effects, and can also function well for portfolio or one page business websites.
3. AccessPress Store (Demo)
AccessPress Store is a free eCommerce WordPress theme with a rather heavy set of features. It comes loaded with custom page templates, several call to action button locations, product sliders, and the ability to add featured products.
If yours is a smaller eCommerce store or if you do not need the excess functionality, you may find AccessPress Store an overkill for your project.
4. Azera Shop (Demo)
In terms of features and functionality, Azera Shop is pretty much similar to Shop Isle mentioned above (both come from the same developers as well). You can use it to build an eCommerce store mainly, but if you wish to, it can serve the needs of portfolio or business sites as well.
Azera Shop is also based on Bootstrap. However, its default usage is different in the sense your homepage features a large header image with a call to action button (you can, of course, choose to disable that).
5. Bazaar Lite (Demo)
Bazaar Lite is a simple and straightforward free eCommerce WordPress theme. You can have a slideshow on your homepage, and add products with the help of WooCommerce.
The basic version is pretty stripped down and can suffice for the needs of a smaller online store. If, however, you need something extra, you might be required to purchase the Pro version of this theme.
6. Alpha Store (Demo)
Alpha Store is multiple-column eCommerce WordPress theme with a grid layout. It supports WooCommerce and various other WordPress plugins. Alpha Store offers a full-width Flex Slider, and the ability to add custom products and shortcodes. It also features multiple homepage layouts and styles.
If you are looking for a minimal and clean eCommerce WordPress theme, Alpha Store is possibly not the best pick. Based on Bootstrap, this particular theme relies heavily on CSS3 and HTML animations as well as carousels to present your content.
TheShop is a clean and minimal eCommerce WordPress theme. It is an absolute no-nonsense theme that just works out of the box. All you need to do is setup the homepage, and you are good to go.
In fact, other than the header slider, TheShop hardly has any extra tweaks or settings to configure.
Based on Bootstrap, Kakina is an eCommerce WordPress theme that can be used for a varied nature of websites. It works well with most of the popular WooCommerce extensions.
Pretty much like Alpha Store mentioned above (both come from the same developers), Kakina is not for folks who prefer minimal and clean design. It is full of various animations, custom sliders and templates. Also, note that Kakina, albeit in active development, is slightly less popular as compared to the other themes on this list. It currently has over 900 active installations.
Store (extra credits for having possibly the most obvious name for an eCommerce WordPress theme) is a feature-heavy theme built with Bootstrap. It offers multiple page layouts, custom product showcases, multiple sliders and animations.
Store also offers different skins and color options for you to choose from. While this theme might be overloaded for a smaller online store, it is surely a good choice for big eCommerce shops that require the extra set of features.
Coeur is a simple, clean and elegant eCommerce WordPress theme. It integrates seamlessly with WooCommerce, and lets you run an online shop with ease.
The developers seem to have forgotten to add the “responsive” tag to the theme’s WP.org listing. However, the demo is fully responsive, and the theme description does state the theme to be responsive. Coeur can also function well as a standalone blogging theme and it supports post formats.
So there you have it, 10 of the latest and very best free eCommerce WordPress themes! Which one is your favorite? Know any special WordPress theme that I missed? Share it with the world in the comments below!
