Being the best eCommerce theme is a big shoe to fill but I am serious when I say that the new Boutique theme from Elegant themes is it. ( Yes I know I said shoe and not shoes) I am shocked at how amazing it is and if you are already a member of the site ($39 a year), then it is free for you!
I recently published an article about Elegant themes vs Thesis, however in this situation this Boutique WordPress theme wins hands down! You would not even attempt to recreate this theme using Thesis.
I actually hate normal boring looking eCommerce sites as they all look the same but just have different products, if we are lucky.
Enter the Boutique Ecommerce theme from Elegant themes. This is definitely a theme that is moving with the times.
Meet the best Ecommerce theme:
Features that make this the Best eCommerce Theme
Alternate blog layout
This is a huge plus for this theme. Obviously an Ecommerce site has product pages but this theme lets you run a separate blog to add content to…
You are probably thinking “SO”? Well this is great for SEO. Ecommerce sites usually lack content for the search engines but a blog running in the background will definitely put you on the radar.
How do I know this you ask? Well this is how I make mini sites. They are usually 5 pages at the most, with an aim to sell one product. The best mini sites I have are getting content posted to an article section in the background. This keeps the site fresh and happening.
Easy design change -best Ecommerce theme
You can change the colors of your theme at the press aof a button. Boutique comes with various background textures along with the ability to adjust the background color. There are so many options. You can even change the font colors. All this makes it easy to customize the website the way want it.
Even the button choices are amazing!
Changing the buttons is part of the Boutique shortcodes along with a dozen other options that will seriously blow you away.
Advertising options built in
For those who find it hard to add in advertising banners, Boutique has inbuilt advertising that you can turn on and off. All you have to do is add you advertising code in.
There are the usual product sliders and a fantastic product page. You can see the slider and product page below.
Actual products page. Oh and I forgot to mention the star ratings included. This is absolutely the best Ecommerce theme but I think you could also use it as a Review theme.
It also has professional pricing tables included! Check out the screenshot below.
Shopping cart integration
No wonder this is the best eCommerce theme! They have literally thought of everything here. Listed below are all the shopping carts that this theme is compatible with. No more testing to see if a particular shopping cart will suit and work well with your theme, because it is already tested and proved to be working.

Did I mention this theme will let you add Social media buttons using the Boutique shortcodes.
There is so much more to this theme, and this is why I believe this is the best Ecommerce theme I have seen so far.
Do you think I have gone overboard by naming this the best Ecommerce theme?
