The official WordPress theme directory is where most people find a design when they first start using WordPress. It’s a fantastic place to find a WordPress theme, but when you want to build something more professional, you will generally find better solutions in the premium market.
Premium WordPress themes tend to be sold in one of two locations. They either sold directly via the developer’s own shop or they are sold via a WordPress theme marketplace.
Marketplaces sell WordPress themes from thousands of different designers. In exchange for generating a lot of traffic, they take a percentage of any sales that are made.
From a user’s point of view, marketplaces are a good place to search for themes as there are thousands of designs to choose from. Since these designs are created by so many different authors, you get a really good variety of designs.
In this page you will find a list of marketplaces where you can purchase WordPress themes.
Founded in 2009 as MojoThemes, Mojo Marketplace has a great selection of premium WordPress themes on its books; many of which you will not find elsewhere.
The maretketplace also sells WordPress plugins and themes for other content management systems such as Joomla, Drupal, and Magento.
By far the largest WordPress marketplace on the internet, ThemeForest sells thousands of WordPress themes across many different categories.
The competitive nature of ThemeForest has made it a place where WordPress users can find a bargain. Many of the best selling WordPress themes come packaged with premium plugins and you can find themes from as low as $13.
