UX Themes, the developer of Flatsome, is the best selling WooCommerce eCommerce theme on Themforest.

Does Flatsome really have an advantage over the competition? What features does Flatsome offer for WooCommerce stores?

These are some questions I will try to answer in this Flatsome theme review. Let’s read!

About Flatsome

Flatsome has been around since 2013 and is one of the top-rated (and, best-selling) themes on  ThemeForest . In fact, ThemeForest is the best selling theme for WooCommerce with 191,000+ sales with a rating of 4.8/5.

Getting Started with Flatsome The installation package contains several folders.

To add the theme to your WooCommerce store, you need to extract the Zip files and upload them to the Themes folder. For that, go to Dashboard → Appearance → Themes. To find the zip folder, follow this path: flatsome_main → theme files.

Inside the main folder you will also find a file called flatsome-child.zip. The developers added this to help you create a child theme which is often very useful when you just want to change the CSS and keep the customization.

After installing the Flatsome theme, you need to activate it. Go to your Dashboard → View → Prohibition → click “Enable”. A new window will open with the theme activation procedure; Enter the purchase code you got from Flatsome.

Theme Design

Design is the build or break feature of a website. The more creative your online identity looks, the more potential customers you will attract. It is common for visitors to visit a well-designed website just to enjoy the aesthetics.

Flatsome offers pre-made premium quality demos that are very convenient when you have a website structure in mind. Another major benefit of demos is that everything works fine, from the homepage to the payment process.

Flatsome has amazing parallax effects, integrated Wireframe Kit, UX Creator and Flatsome Studio allow you to create stunning web pages. The theme color, image size, block placement, icons and background design are stunning.

Speed ​​Optimization

More people use mobile phones to order online than any other device. If you are opening a store to sell products online, your store should be mobile friendly and fast for a better user experience. Here it is Flatsome is incredibly optimized for speed.

The theme can fit any screen size. I tested this theme on different devices to verify its compatibility and speed; the results were extraordinary. Logos and icons are well placed, as should other website elements.

Live Page Builder

Flatsome comes with UX Builder , a front-end optimized page builder that you can use to directly edit individual elements and immediately see what effect the changes have on the live website .

Flatsome

UX Builder has 36 different content elements, including basic elements like videos, sliders, and chapters. Instagram feed can also be seamlessly integrated. You can’t complain as all important content items/blocks are available with Flatsome.

Flatsome Studio

Flatsome Studio is an extensive FREE digital library with images, pre-designed layouts and sections that you can import and use in just a few clicks. All of them are organized into different categories so you can easily find different website elements.

When importing new elements, you can open the studio and choose from over 100 elements. These are usually templates for key sections (price charts, logos, testimonials, banners, campaigns, calls to action, etc.).

Other features

Why is Flatsome better than other themes and what else can it do? Let’s take a look at the best features.

  • Easily design your own checkout pages
  • Live search where visitors can find what they’re looking for when they type
  • Products can be opened with a quick glance at category pages

After all, the Flatsome team has really thought of everything a WooCommerce based online store could possibly need. However, most of these features can now be found in all other top rated theme packs as well.

Theme Support

Of course, Flatsome has top-notch support. You can always contact the team with your questions (within the support period), even if the documentation is not as stunning as with some other providers:

Pricing and Plans

The Regular License costs $59 on ThemeForest. With this type of license, the theme can only be used by a single customer. If you need to use the theme in multiple stores or for multiple customers, you will need to purchase an Extended License for $2,950.

Conclusion:

With Flatsome, online stores with customized modules and theme options can be created relatively easily. Integration with WooCommerce is very easy. This theme may not be ideal for beginners as there are many options to get used to first.

However, a theme like Flatsome can definitely make your job easier and allow you to get a professional looking store (another very important factor if you want to sell online), even if you’re not an expert. Definitely worth a try!
