When it comes to choosing a premium WordPress theme for your website, you have an abundance of options available to you.
This page showcases some of the major online stores in the premium themes space and outlines their major features, offers, and terms.
The list isn’t complete – new shops and studios open (and close) all the time – so do take time to look around until you find a product/service that best fits your needs both now and in the future.
Forever growing catalog (over 55 at the time of writing) of high-quality mobile responsive, HTML5 themes built in-house and by third-party studios used on nearly 200,000 websites.
The themes are called ‘child themes’ because they sit on top of the Genesis Framework, which costs a mere $59.95 (no it doesn’t – the framework is now free).
The price of a child theme starts at around $40. After you buy your first theme, you’re entitled to a customer discount of 25% on all future purchases.
You can buy a child theme as you need it, or opt for the Pro Plus Package and buy all current and future themes for one price.
If you’re a web designer or build your own authority websites, you can use the framework and child themes you own on as many sites as you like – even for clients.
87 themes (at the time of writing) for an annual fee of $69 is hard to beat, but that’s what you get from Elegant Themes.
Their portfolio covers almost the full range of sectors, including eCommerce, personal blogs, magazine-style, and, of course, the almost legendary Divi theme and Divi Builder, which makes it easy for people with no coding knowledge to build great looking websites.
If you are a developer or want lifetime access, there are a couple of other plans available at $89 per year and a one-time fee of $249.
WooCommerce, formerly known as WooThemes, is a very well-known and popular premium theme and plugin developer, possibly one of the most famous of all.
They currently specialize in eCommerce themes but still offer themes for other types of sites: business, magazine, portfolio, etc.
Prices start at $79 for individual themes which can be used on unlimited domains and come with one year’s support and updates, to $119 for the developer’s package, which comes bundled with layered Photoshop PSD files and one year’s support and updates.
The final package costs $399 and gives you access to all themes, which can be used on unlimited domains, comes bundled with the layered Photoshop PSD files and one year’s support and updates.
Theme Forest is another marketplace offering WordPress themes and plugins. The prices here start at $3, but the average price for a premium WordPress theme is typically somewhere between a very reasonable $35 and $55.
Once again, before you buy, take a look at the history of the authors you are interested in to see how active they are on the site and how responsive they are to problems.
