Did you know?
According to the Statistics report in 2017 eCommerce turnover was around $2.3 trillion in sales. Furthermore, it is expected to hit $4.5 trillion in 2021.
For instance, almost 10% of retail sales in the US alone are made online. And this number is going to grow by nearly 15% each year. That’s why we are not surprised to see you here searching for a decent template for your business. You can’t neglect the global commercial tendencies and surely have your finger in this pie.
How to start an eCommerce store the easiest way?
Actually, there are two ways of launching an online shop. You can hire a professional web developer to do the job for you or choose a ready-made website template and do everything yourself.
Which way is the best for your particular case?
The answer is always “it depends”. Are you ready to invest thousands of bucks into your future store design without any ROI guarantee? Choose a good designer and start working on your project. It’s likely that you’ll get a unique website in the end, but the process will take time, endless negotiations, and a considerable amount of money, of course.
If you are not ready to buy a pig in the poke (most of the entrepreneurs are not, so you are in a good company). Choose the fastest, the simplest, and the most cost-efficient way – buy a website template (for $50 – $100 on average) from a reliable provider. This option fits you even if you know nothing about coding and web design. All complex job is already done instead of you, so you will replace the default logo with your own, tweak the colors, upload product images, descriptions, and so on, and your brand new website will be ready to accept the orders.
We will list major features to consider when choosing a website template to get a modern, attractive, and profitable site in the future.
What features should an eCommerce template have?
The choice of eCommerce templates is really overwhelming. Do you already know which engine is going to power your online store? Magento, PrestaShop, WooCommerce, Shopify, whatever? Not sure which one to select? Take a look at the pie chart below. It demonstrates the popularity of different eCommerce platforms across the entire web. Knowing what others choose is always helpful, isn’t it?
But let’s get back to the must-have features of the quality eCommerce template:
- Responsive, retina-ready layouts. The percentage of mobile shoppers is growing bigger day-by-day, so your store should be optimized for all kinds of contemporary mobile gadgets. The feature not only improves user experience but boosts your SEO.
- Drag and drop page builder. As you will customize your website yourself, the process should be as intuitive as possible. Different templates use different builders, just look for the one that doesn’t require any technical skills from you.
- There should be a possibility to change standard options for theme appearance. You will surely want to edit theme look, improve typography, replace the logo, modify navigation, update slider, blog pages, portfolio, and page footer until they inherit your corporate style.
- The template should offer custom-made post types & formats. This way you will be able to use unique post types for testimonials, team introduction posts, services, and other posts you want to emphasize. Every page of your website can get its individual charm.
- It’s great when a template has different shortcodes. You can use them for quick embedding media and other content like post output, grids, elements, lists, tabs, video and audio, Google Map, and so on.
- Custom widgets and theme Customizer make page editing very easy and convenient. It’s really great that you can view all changes in real time with the help of the Preview function.
This list can be continued, but we guess it’s high time to finally study the examples of the best eCommerce templates. View their demos, study documentation, and make your pick.
