- Be multipurpose/ Fit into one niche exceptionally well

- Come with built-in features that help with user experience and conversions
- Be able to showcase your products effectively
- SEO- Friendly
- Integrate well with Woocommerce
So if you are looking for the best of the best , or are just curious about how your theme stacks up, then enjoy the article.
Our List of The Best 15 Free Woocommerce Themes
Neve is one of our favorite themes for a couple of reasons
First of all, it is a theme that can be used for a wide range of niches. Whether you want a simple blog, portfolio, or a more complex corporate site, Neve gots you covered with their 80+ starter site templates
Another great thing is that it integrates with pretty much all of the famous page builders like:
- Visual Composer
- Site Origin
- Divi Builder
Second, it is a theme that is mobile-friendly, fast, flexible, and you have plenty of variety in terms of layout to choose from and functionality to add to your Woocommerce product pages.
Ocean WP is another one of our favorites when it comes to woocommerce themes.
At the moment, it has 3,000,000+ installs and no wonder.
One thing that we like specifically about Ocean is that they give you a whole library of information about how to use their woocommerce theme to its highest potential.
Say goodbye to endless “how to” Youtube searches.
Here are some of the things that make Ocean awesome:
- The creative demos mentioned earlier
- Fully Responsive
- Built with SEO in mind
- Lightweight for better load time
It comes with a lot of premium quality built-in features that you would need a couple of plug-ins to get the same level of functionality.
Here are the most important ones in our opinion:

- Floating add to cart bar
- Quick product details view option
All of these advanced features help you get more conversions and help you provide a great user experience which is a core Google ranking factor. (hence built with SEO in mind)
The best way to be sure you have a theme that integrates with Woocommerce is to have a theme that was developed by them( the same developers more specifically).
And this is the exact case with the storefront theme, so you can be pretty sure that you will be getting the most robust woocommerce theme that integrates the best with Woocommerce if you choose Storefront.
Unlike Shopify, every WordPress theme is a Woocommerce one by default. This means that you have a lot more room for customization with each theme.
Where this classic theme lacks in comparison with the other themes mentioned earlier is in terms of the additional features being included.
Ecommerce Gem is a theme that makes creating the ideal ecommerce store a walk in the park.

It is a bit of a lie when they say that they are the most popular theme of all time(compared to Neve’s 3,000,000+ users.)
Either way, 1,653,898 users and an overwhelming amount of 5-star reviews are still pretty impressive.
