WordPress Themes – Flatsome

Flatsome is one of the most popular WordPress themes on Themeforest for creating a WooCommerce based online store. This is definitely the sort of theme you should be considering if you aim to build an online store. With a wide range of options and a responsive page builder, Flatsome users can create more or less anything they want, without needing to know anything about coding.


Everything about the Flatsome WordPress theme, from the homepage to the shop pages, looks very well thought out. With a full width slider that can contain images and video background and the built-in gallery on-hover animation, it’s easy to make your site look great. Flatsome comes complete with UX Builder, allowing you to build your pages quickly and easily.

There’s also an element library containing 30 content elements, 9 shop elements, and 5 layout elements, plus hundreds of presets and options for each element. For example, there is a handy Banner Editor which allows you to create banners with Drag and Drop. The built-in Theme Option Panel allows you to easily customise colours, fonts, header and footer layouts etc.

Whilst there are plenty of WordPress themes built to be Woocommerce compatible, the Flatsome theme is definitely one of the best and well worth considering.

How to get Flatsome?

It depends on your confidence and skill level. When you buy a premium theme, the vendor or author usually gives you a period of free support, which includes help setting it up, so if you need help setting a theme up, the best solution is to buy from the author. If you buy this theme on Themeforest, for example, you get 6 months support. If you want support after the initial 6 months, you have to pay for it.

If you’re able to set up themes without needing help (or don’t mind Googling for answers to your questions) and don’t mind manually updating your theme a couple of times a year, downloading it from WPDepository makes sense! Don’t forget that subscribers to WPDepository you are able to download any from hundreds of themes and plugins, not just one!
