Shopify themes are a one time purchase, and many themes can be used on more than one shop. However, be sure to check the terms and conditions of your theme because you don’t want to accidentally violate them, and have your store shut down as a result.
Tips for purchasing a theme:
- Chose one from a reputable source. The Shopify Marketplace vets all the themes that are sold there, so you can be sure it’s high quality. Another great source is a company called “Out of The Sandbox“. They have premium themes, and amazing support.
- Pick one that has a navigation and homepage layout that you like. These are the most unique parts about shops, so make sure it’s something you love. The collection pages and the single product pages are fairly standard throughout all Shopify sites, so make sure you pick one that has a strong navigation and home page to make your brand come alive.
- Check the mobile version of the demo. Mobile usage has taken over online shopping, so be sure that the template you want looks good on mobile!
Finally, make it your own! So many themes are pulled straight from the box and slapped up with the default colours and fonts. Hiring a designer to go over your theme and make some professional adjustments can make a world of difference.
