What Is a WordPress Theme?

A WordPress theme is a collection of website templates used to define the appearance and display of a website powered with WordPress. There are various free and paid WordPress themes available.

Small business owners often look for free e-commerce websites templates and design themes because they allow them to create a professional looking website while on a budget.

How do I choose the best WordPress theme?

If you just started looking for a theme for your site, you might be wondering: “What is the best WordPress e-commerce theme? How do I choose one?”

You can’t go wrong with a theme that:

  • Is responsive — meaning it adjusts the layout across different screen sizes and devices
  • Looks great on different browsers (Google Chrome, Safari, etc)
  • Is compatible with most used WordPress page builders
  • Is SEO friendly
  • Has good documentation and a support option.

Once you’ve chosen an e-commerce theme and installed the Ecwid plugin, the look and layout of your online store will automatically be updated to match the format, design, and color scheme of your website theme. That will enhance the appearance and hopefully attract your potential customer’s eye. Remember, lots of purchases start with visual interest.

You can switch out your e-commerce theme as often as you’d like to find the best design for your brand and your store.
