Buy a presta theme or not

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

could someone tell me the benefits of buying a prestashop theme instead of using one free?

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Us yank's have a saying,  you get what you pay for.  I am sure this translates across all cultures.

 

Why skimp on the most important part of your visitors experience?  What I would make sure that whichever theme you  choose that it has a dedicated and responsive forum, i.e. say on themeforest.  Or here on the forum.  Where the developer(s) respond to questions.

 

If you decide to try various themes, make sure to back up your entire shop, files and db first

well, free themes aren't so professional and amazing as paid themes.

Free themes are usually simple. Paid themes are charming, well coded and just beautiful.

 

Good-looking shop is in my opinion one of the most important things!

Thanks you both.

 

And what about prestashop updates?

I thought when you buy a theme you can get the update for the new prestashop version for free (included in the price). 

And when you have a free theme, not always you have the updated version of the theme. 

 

Thanks again.

hello

 

possibility to update theme depends on theme developer usually (on license)

most of them (developers) grant you access to free updates.

 

before you order a theme, make sure that "free update" is a part of offer.
