In the top spot is Atelier, with a score of 9 out of 10 Atelier is an awesome theme, and one we’ve used on a number of client projects This theme is packed with features, and still manages to be one of the faster eCommerce themes around It comes with a huge range of layout variations, and features a one-click demo content importer, which is awesome! Atelier’s page load speed is more than adequate, when you weigh up the huge amount of content that it ships with It’s one of the most feature rich themes on this list What predominantly impacts the page speed score in this instance is the heavy use of images, which is something you are in control of, through ensuring you optimize your images for web

It has a great mobile score of 74, and the desktop scored a reasonable 62 on the Google Pagespeed Insights test Despite its extensive features and offerings, Atelier remains very easy to use Atelier also features a spacious and easy to use mega menu Hover states, and animations are implemented to perfection So that the user always knows where they are, and what’s possible

The typefaces used in Atelier suit the theme and its design perfectly Heading sizes create a natural hierarchy, and the fonts themselves are easy to read Atelier also makes good use of animations, whitespace, and bursts of color, to keep things interesting and alive It feels modern and relaxed, and will suit a wide range of online stores Atelier has plenty to offer on mobile as well

It’s impressive that most of the features available on desktop are kept, and adapted for mobile screens The image sliders on product lists are still there, and work really well The menu is well placed, and large enough for even the clumsiest of fingers to use It would be almost impossible to mention all the features packaged into Atelier, without dedicating more than half of this video But the score it received should speak volumes

All the big features like Google Maps, product viewing options, and demos are all included On top of that, there is a huge number of widgets and elements to create engaging layouts, with everything from interactive sliders, to bar and circle animations, and pretty much anything else you’ll need It also comes with handy user controls to switch the shop view from grid to list, and much more In second place, is Savoy scoring 9 out of 10 Savoy is the picture of minimalism However, still manages to include a reasonable amount of features and layout options

That, and its 10/10 page speed score, launches it to the top of our list Its ease of use, and minimalist style combine to create an enviable user experience, making it a great choice for your next project The first theme to score a perfect 10/10 for our page load metrics It scores 66 for mobile, and an outstanding 85 for desktop on the Google Pagespeed Insights test Literally, the only thing this theme could improve, is to combine its external JavaScript and CSS

The other areas all scored straight A’s It goes without saying, that the minimalist themes score well in the ease of use category And Savoy does a great job of it It would be a little unfair to give it a perfect 10/10 though, considering how much more content and elements some of the other themes have to contend with Savoy sticks to its minimalist roots throughout

Even the colors are minimal, sticking predominantly to grayscale What makes it stand out is the dash of color throughout the page, like the orange cart items counter, and image zoom hover states The default typefaces are modern, well-sized, and very easy to read You could see the designers went for the Nordic fashion/lifestyle vibe, and have pulled it off beautifully It’s rare to find a shop that’s so easy to use on mobile

The gallery retains all of its features from the desktop site, which is quite unique The menu re-sizes well to smaller devices, and is easy to navigate There are certainly other themes on this list with a greater level of functionality, however, the most important features like Google Maps, charts and progress bars, as well as everything you need for a product page, are accounted for There is also a good range of layout options to choose from Rounding out the top 3 is TheGem earning a 9 out of 10 TheGem is actually a business theme, and made it into our Best Business WordPress Themes’ top 3 as well

Its great eCommerce capabilities nabs it another podium spot on this list Ladened with animations, widgets, and features, this theme is a real winner TheGem’s page speed score is impressive when you take into account how much more content it ships with The developers have done all the hard work, and there are no real obvious improvements to be made here The amount of images and media used just naturally brings the loading time down

TheGem scored an exceptional 79 and 92 respectively for mobile and desktop on the Google Pagespeed Insights test Hands down, TheGem has the best mega menu on this list It is well designed, incredibly user-friendly, and can handle images It also makes extensive use of preloaders wherever it’s needed With all the features, widgets, content, animations, and elements built into this theme, you would expect TheGem to feel congested and overwhelming, however it’s one of the easier sites to navigate and provides a great user experience

TheGem is another example of how using bright colors effectively can not only make a site look fantastic, but also elevate the user experience The choice of typefaces are on point, and they have managed to make the theme feel engaging and interactive, with great use of hover states and animation We love how this theme looks on mobile, specifically the way the menu flips This solves a lot of problems that come with using large, multi-tiered menus on mobile screens Similarly, TheGem finds effective ways to deal with all the content it has to offer, and presents it appropriately on any screen size

TheGem has a great range of features It also has two of its own custom sliders (Revolution and Layer) Each come with some cool 2D and 3D animations and effects, which is a pretty rad feature There are also some niche specific features, that are worth exploring Up next we have Neto with a 9 out of 10 Neto is a modern and minimal eCommerce WordPress theme, that features a number of homepage layouts to suit most preferences

This theme makes great use of whitespace, combines sans-serif typefaces, and incorporates niche specific widgets into its design to create an easy to use and engaging experience Scoring well across the board, this theme is somewhat of an all rounder, and would be well suited to all types of online stores This theme scored well on our page speed test, and the mobile experience is solid Product pages look great, with product images zoomable via an easy to use lightbox Similarly, product variation options and buttons are well styled, product sharing via social media is integrated nicely, and the description, reviews, and related products features all look elegant

In fifth, we have Organik scoring 9 out of 10 Organik is an excellent all round theme that’s refreshing to use Although it isn’t necessarily the best in any specific area, it still scores really high in all categories The theme is aimed at businesses in the food, or fresh produce industry, and the color schemes and designs really push that clean and fresh feel While it doesn’t quite have enough functionality to score a 10, it’s more than adequate with all the basic widgets and elements covered The fonts used are modern, readable and well scaled

And it receives bonus points for the compare and quick view widgets, awesome gallery, and mega menu We then have Olsen with 9 out of 10 Olsen ranked in the top spot of our best WordPress blog themes article Therefore if you want to incorporate a blog into your online store, then this theme is for you Its clean and minimal design, that includes a number of layout variations is what really stands out about this theme It’s elegant and tasteful use of typography, inclusion of relevant widgets, and eCommerce experience make it a serious contender This theme translates seamlessly to all devices, providing a consistent user experience

This themes is packed with features, and comes with a number of unique options for eCommerce Although the fonts are stylish, they don’t have the same impact as other bold and sans serif typefaces, especially in an online shop Our only real concern with this theme, is it’s less than stellar mobile performance compared to others on this list scoring 54 on the Google Pagespeed Insights test It can also feel a little cramped at times, however, that might be us being a little too critical Next is Oxygen with an 8 out of 10 When it comes to design, Oxygen almost reaches perfection

The spacing of elements, use of simple colors, and their placement inside boxes look amazing! A side benefit of this, is that it makes this theme really easy to use An example of great design translating to a great user experience The use of an amazing gallery, on pretty much every image is great This theme comes with a good range of layout options, and most of the important features you will need for an effective eCommerce website Its a real shame that this theme didn’t score higher in our page speed category, which we weight higher for eCommerce

It’s MyThemeShop’s default online store theme

It comes with six different layout variations that are each unique, although following the same base architecture The variations do a good job of covering different genres like luxury items, sports clothing, and feature both masculine and feminine designs This theme is incredibly well rounded, with a solid page load speed, and mobile experience, the eCommerce theme is sure to impress We then have Hestia Pro with a 7 out of 10 Hestia Pro is a unique looking theme, and heavily embraces material design principles, specifically dimension This theme has an interesting take on the usual visual elements, which you’ll either love or hate

Most elements have rounded corners, and images have sliding hover animations It features large, sans serif fonts, that are easy to read Although nothing is actually wrong with the mobile responsiveness of this theme, the design doesn’t translate as well to smaller displays, however we know this theme will certainly appeal to a number of users Up next is Divi with a score of 7 out of 10 Divi’s greatest feature is that it comes with an easy to use page builder This means that it has a huge list of features and design options to cover almost any kind of website you could imagine

Even better than that, is that you’ll be able to create the design you want without any coding experience, and whatever coding you do know, will make it even easier However, it also means it will take some work for you to make it feel like your own shop The default design feels like a business site However, it does come with a nice shop that has all the necessary features, so that’s one less thing to worry about Divi’s mobile responsiveness is impeccable and one of the best performers on this list

To learn more about Divi, check out one of our free tutorials using Divi Next is Elbrus scoring 7 out of 10 Elbrus is geared more towards businesses, than an actual online shop However, it does feature a pretty good shopping experience with all the functionality you’ll need It has an especially easy to use rating and review system, and all product images zoom and can switch between variations What we like about Elbrus, is that it also provides more ways to present your business, brand, and team

It’s page speed could be improved, relative to other themes on this list However, this theme scored really well in regards to ease of use, design, and provides a great user experience across multiple devices and display types Up next is Amaryllis with a rating of 7 out of 10 Amaryllis has a number of similar attributes to that of Hugo These two themes come from the same studio, CSSigniter, who produce great quality themes It has a slightly more modern, and toned down feel to it, and is geared towards a much wider audience than Hugo

In our opinion, it doesn’t have as much appeal or charm as Hugo, and lost a point of two for design Still, this theme scored consistently well across all categories, positioning it as a very well rounded theme With simple and intuitive navigation, the user experience is nice, and this theme responds well on all devices Next we have The Core with a score of 7 out of 10 The core is a multipurpose WordPress theme that is jam packed with features, widgets, and niche elements This includes a drag and drop builder, sliders, and a number of product related goodies

It also includes a demo content importer to help you recreate the live demo examples with just a few clicks Which is very appealing! The online store component is solid It incorporates hover states and animations well, features nicely designed product pages, and translates well to mobile, creating a consistent shopping experience, regardless of device type The next ecommerce WordPress theme is BiShop with a 7 out of 10 Bishop is a fantastic looking theme, and incorporates some unique design elements The tiled category pane is quite enjoyable

In the live demo, the theme makes good use of a strong contrast between orange, white and dark images which provides some inspiration for what you could create This themes design, and ease of use are what stand out It could improve in the categories of speed and mobile responsiveness, as it looks great on tablet, however, some elements don’t feel positioned properly on mobile That being said, this is a great looking theme and with a boosted hosting solution will provide a great user experience We then have Refined Pro scoring 7 out of 10 Refined Pro is true to it’s name, featuring a modern meets rustic, eclectic and refined design

It creates an almost Magnolia Market vibe, which seems to be working out pretty well for Chip and Joanna Product pages are well designed, and incorporate easy social media sharing Our only real concern is the slower page load speed score relative to other competitors on this list We wouldn’t expect this, given that it isn’t overly feature or media rich That being said, it has a very classy feel, and would work well as an online store specialising in interior design, antique furniture, or another marketplace of sorts

Up next is Beatrix with a score of 7 out of 10 Beatrix is a well designed theme that provides a great user experience on all devices It doesn’t have a huge amount of features, especially when compared to the other themes on this list However, what it does, it does well Its aesthetically pleasing, capitalizing on a neat and attractive design, the hallmark of TeslaThemes We would like to see some more animation, or hover states to make it feel more alive

However, its mobile responsiveness is good, with just a slight overuse of whitespace, in our humble opinion The next ecommerce WordPress theme is Infinity Pro rated 7 out of 10 Infinity Pro is soft on the eyes, and makes good use of whitespace, elegant typefaces, and pretty colors Its one of the more ‘lightweight’ themes that doesn’t ship with that much in the way of extra layouts, features, or widgets Infinity Pro scored really well in our mobile responsive category, with it’s attractive design translating well to mobile It incorporates simple and intuitive navigation, making this theme really easy to use

Rounding out the top 20 is Shopisle Pro scoring 6 out of 10 ShopIsle Pro is a really well designed theme, and features the majority of the elements you’ll need to create an epic online store This theme could have been featured a lot higher up on this list, but for its lower page load speed score The default layout is well designed and feels quite polished It has a relaxed, and chilled vibe to it that would be great for a fashion or lifestyle store It features modern, readable typefaces that really fit well
