What makes WordPress a great eCommerce platform? In one professional’s opinion, the level of flexibility might be the answer. From do-it-yourself enthusiasts to professional online retailers, WordPress presents endless possibilities of setting up an online shop for anyone who is willing to put in an effort.
The best eCommerce themes are designed to attract visitors towards your product. The calls to action are engaging and your products are clear and easy to scan through. These are some of the things I look for when selecting eCommerce themes for my clients.
Free eCommerce themes are not hard to come by. But trying to decide the best theme to use for your website is a big decision. Setting up an online shop is time consuming and costly if you rely on a professional agency to do it for you. So, you want to be sure that you find the right one first.

In a time where digital marketing rules, it still amazes me that WordPress is still 100% free for all to use. An individual can literally start selling a product online for little to no cost and start working from home within months! Of course, it takes a little more than a simple free WordPress theme to get started. One must consider their web hosting, SEO or SEM strategy, social media advertising and good product overview to become successful. But that is a subject for another day!
