If you are a novice in e-commerce, you may feel pretty insecure about where to start. I bet you don’t feel like spending lots of money for acquiring a custom design, and, probably, consider creating a website using a template.
This choice is pretty wise and I totally agree that this is the right way to get things done. However, there are still many questions left: What kind of template should you go for? A PrestaShop one, a Magento one, a WooCommerce one, or an OpenCart one (I’m not even mentioning the less popular e-store engines)? The choice is pretty hard if you have no experience of working with any of them.
You can’t buy 4 or 5 different templates to obtain first-hand experience of working with different template engines and to determine, which one best fits your needs. Don’t worry, there is a third way out, and this way is finding a free template to try your strength in working with this or that engine.
Sometimes, it’s pretty hard to find a modern well-coded free template. Companies are reluctant to provide what they sell without profit. Only large template providers can afford to provide templates that are equal in quality to the premium ones to let people experience the greatness of their products before purchasing a premium item.
In this post I share with you 50 best free e-commerce /WooCommerce themes of this year, to bring you the best solutions for starting your journey on the way to a perfect website without expenses. These templates were kindly provided by such awesome template providers as TemplateMonster, aThemes, Colorlib and WordPress.org.
In this selection, you’ll find the templates that run on different e-commerce engines. Here are some engine-related tips for you to consider:
- Go for WooCommerce if you want to create a small shop, and need a very simple solution. WooCommerce runs on WordPress, most popular CMS engine in the world, known for its simplicity and comprehensiveness. Go for PrestaShop if you want to create a small/medium shop that is both simple to manage and rich in functionality.
- Go for Magento if you want to run a large store with rich catalogue, or to run a couple of stores on one engine using multistore. Moreover, Magento has very strong SEO, so you can go for it because of this reason.
- Alternatively, you can go for Shopify, ZenCart, Virtuemart or osCommerece if you for some reasons prefer one of these engines.
Checking the templates, you can learn more about each of them by pressing ‘Details’ link below the screenshot, or you can see how the template will look and function after installation by pressing on ‘Live Demo’ link.
