It’s easier than ever to get an online store these days, specially when you use WordPress. However, you usually have to pay for a plugin or premium theme to get all the bells and whistles. Honestly, there aren’t that many good Free WordPress E-commerce Themes out there, and the ones that are acceptable usually pale in comparison to some of the better E-commerce Elegant Themes which cost $69 for a package that will let download any theme on the site. But sometimes you need something quick and well… free. So here you have it, 4 Free WordPress E-commence Themes that will do the job!
1. Beauty Store
Pros: Homepage featured image, related items on sales page, original and sale prices, crazy colors and design
Cons: Non-customizable design, product image glitches, crazy colors and design
This theme is definitely stands out design wise, and is probably designed with humans of the teenaged variety in mind. If that isn’t your audience, consider something less specific.
Pros: Simple product oriented design, easy order tracking, order reporting, short codes, extension compatibility, user accounts
Cons: No homepage slider, generic design, Non-customizable design
If you just want to slap a logo and some products online, this simple theme could be a nice choice. However, it’s possible that no one will remember your design.
Pros: Woo themes support, customizable, ready page templates, related products on product pages, user accounts
Cons: Boring design, no slider, less branding options
Similar to Jigoshop in it’s product oriented simplicity, but with the support and extension compatibility of Woo Themes. But extensions will usually cost you, and in my opinion the design is less clean.
Pros: Big homepage slider with customizable options, simple yet hip design elements, cool shop features, custom home page widgets
Cons: Limited colors, good product image dependent, fewer branding options
I’ve saved the best for last. It’s basic, and the design will depend on having a great looking big slider, but this theme helps you with that. And it’s got some really slick design sensibilities to it’s other elements that I love.
These free WordPress E-commerce themes will get you up and running! If you’re looking for something with more features, flexibility and power, you’re going to have to pay for it. But all things considered, premium E-commerce themes are pretty cheap. It’ll cost you $69 for a personal package, which allows you to download any theme on the site as many times as you want.
