Today I will introduce you to 10 tricks to find a good Premium WordPress WooCommerce Themes for your ecommerce projects.
There is no such thing as the best Premium WordPress WooCommerce Themes in my opinion, there are just projects that better suit your needs than others. So when you need to buy a Premium WordPress WooCommerce Theme, analyze what you really need and don’t search only for “the best premium wordpress wooCommerce themes”. No theme will be perfect so you will have to add or edit something anyway.
Still with me? Great! I’ll start with the first trick:
TIP 1: CHECK THE RECENT UPDATES
If you see that a theme has been updated more than 6 months ago it means that their developers care about it. When a theme is updated quite often, they put the same effort in it. It means that how good the Theme was when it was released can be even better now because their developers keep adding new functions.
TIP 2: READ THE DETAILS
Check how good are the details in a Premium WordPress WooCommerce Theme. A detail could be something like contact number or email address of Customer Support or “powered by” link to their official site. If you see all these things well detailed, you’ll know where to get support for example when needed , which will make your life easier in case something goes wrong (and believe me it will).
TIP 3: TESTED BY OTHERS
Test what other people think about that Premium WordPress WooCommerce Theme. You can find it by reading posts from blogs or forums that have tested the plugin. If many people have good things to say about a theme, you should consider it.
TIP 4: WORDPRESS COMPATIBILITY
Check how compatible is a Premium WordPress WooCommerce Theme with the latest versions of WordPress. New versions of WordPress are released time after time and if your theme isn’t compatible anymore it could be a problem down the road because you will miss new functions in WordPress itself (and no one wants that).
TIP 5: DOCUMENTATION
Documentation means well written manuals, tutorials and video tutorials that teach us how to use their software in an easier way. That’s why I recommend checking out official documentation before buying a theme. If you’re not happy with it, try searching for “documentation” on Google where you should look for other official documentation as well as third-party ones because people usually post tutorials from blogs or forums which can be very helpful.
TIP 6: RESPONSIVENESS TEST
Finally, buy only those themes that offer a responsiveness option because nowadays more and more people access the internet using tablets and smartphones. There are still a lot of old fashioned pc users but if things go the way they are going now you could miss many potential customers if your site is not responsive.
TIP 7: ONE TAB VS. MULTIPLE TABS
If your theme offers an option to show all the categories in one tab instead of using many tabs, choose the first option because it will save you space on mobile devices and users will be able to access more contents easily. This is important because nowadays people are not willing to click buttons or turn their head too much during their browsing session.
TIP 8: VISUAL COMPARISON CHART
This is a great way to convince yourself of buying that Premium WordPress WooCommerce Theme since you can compare different themes side-by-side with this tool which will help you choose the best one. Moreover, there are quite often cases where you can’t even try a theme before buying it (you need to pay for a full unlimited version) so this is an excellent option in that case.
TIP 9: PRODUCT PAGES
If your theme offers good enough product pages, it’s already half way to success because people will find all necessary information there and they will be able to make purchase decisions quickly. As I said before, your products should be well described on their product page along with large images, the Add to Cart button must be visible and everything else should merge well together. Also don’t forget about social media sharing buttons because many visitors would share your products through them if given the opportunity which will let their friends know about your site and they might also buy something in the future.
TIP 10: MULTIPLE THUMBNAILS ON PRODUCT PAGES
Having several thumbnails on product pages is always nice but you need to consider if your theme supports it or not because some of them don’t. It’s not that big of an issue but it would be better if your themes came with this option because more images = more chance to convince buyers that they should buy that product (and yes buyers like images).
