Just a few years ago, being able to easily build an e-commerce based site with WordPress didn’t really exist. Sure, there were plugins and themes that were made to try and make it easier to accomplish this, but they were still pretty tough for someone a bit less tech-savvy to figure out.
Then, back in 2008, three guys got together to start building WordPress themes together and somewhere along the way, the WooCommerce Plugin was born. This plugin was released into the realms of the WordPress market and quickly caught fire when people realized that they could build an e-commerce site easier than ever before.
Since then, the WordPress community has banded together to start creating WP themes that support WooCommerce so that people, techy and non-techy alike, could easily build and create online stores.
Below is a list we’ve curated of some of the best WooCommerce themes and put them on display for you guys.
Top WooCommerce Themes in 2015
To start our list out with a bang, we’ve listed Divi 2.0 as part of our most stunning WooCommerce themes out on the WordPress market.
Divi is WooCommerce compatible and one of the most versatile drag and drop themes out there, which means that you can use it to build just about any layout and style you want out of a WordPress and WooCommerce site. The store layouts within Divi are also pretty versatile so that you can change the look to be close to what you’re looking for.
If you haven’t already taken a look at what Divi has to offer, then consider this a sign (*wink*).
