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 ecommerce 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 ecommerce 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 ecommerce 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 ecommerce theme as often as you’d like to find the best design for your brand and your store.

So simple to use – even my most technophobic clients can manage. Easy to install, quick to set up. Light years ahead of other shop plugins.
I’m so impressed I’ve recommended it to my website clients and am now using it for my own store along with four others for which I webmaster. Beautiful coding, excellent top-notch support, great documentation, fantastic how-to videos. Thank you so much Ecwid, you rock!
I’ve used Ecwid and I love the platform itself. Everything is so simplified it’s insane. I love how you have different options to choose shipping carriers, to be able to put in so many different variants. It’s a pretty open e-commerce gateway.
Easy to use, affordable (and a free option if starting off). Looks professional, many templates to select from. The App is my favorite feature as I can manage my store right from my phone. Highly recommended 👌👍
I like that Ecwid was easy to start and to use. Even for a person like me, without any technical background. Very well written help articles. And the support team is the best for my opinion.
For everything it has to offer, ECWID is incredibly easy to set up. Highly recommend! I did a lot of research and tried about 3 other competitors. Just try ECWID and you'll be online in no time.
