The 12 best PrestaShop templates + how to find the right one for you (2021 update)

You need a template for your online store.

So you hit the net, check the options, and suddenly realize that there are thousands of them.

Which raises the question: which one should you get?

Obviously, the template you choose won’t only determine how good your e‑commerce looks; it will also affect its structure, user experience, and SEO, among many others.

That’s why this post is more than just a list of the best PrestaShop templates (which is subjective). We’re also going to establish some basic criteria to help you make your choice.

So grab a pen and a piece of paper because we’re about to get started. 😉

👉 Criteria for choosing the best PrestaShop template + some tips

PrestaShop is one of the most popular e‑commerce CMS out there.

One of its main advantages is the intuitive and user-friendly interface. That said, while it has plenty of default options, we recommend purchasing a premium (paid) template.

Why?

Well, having a wider range of customization options to choose from will help you stand out from your competitors and your store will look more professional overall.

But the difficult choice is which one to buy.

To help you out, we’ll spell out a few factors you should take into account (beyond just improved appearance):

  • Load speed: Nobody likes to wait, so if your website takes too long to load, you’ll lose potential shoppers. Plus, Google takes this into account for positioning. You can measure it using tools such as GTMetrix or Pingdom.
  • Responsive design: A significant percentage of purchases are made on mobile devices. Check if your template’s design is suited for cellphones and other devices, such as tablets.
  • Updated template: Make sure that the developer updates it regularly. PrestaShop changes, so templates must change as well if they’re to avoid errors. The description on the screen shows when it was last updated.
  • PrestaShop version:6.x themes don’t work in 1.7.x and vice versa. Take the version you’re using into account to be sure your template is compatible.
  • Reviews: Check the rating and comments to be sure you’re getting a proven and reliable design.
  • Optimized for SEO: Pay close attention to whether the template favors web positioning or not. Not all templates have SEO-optimized source code, which could lead to lots of headaches down the line.

If the template meets all these criteria, it could be a strong candidate for your website.

But it doesn’t end there.

✅ The litmus test to choose the best template (for you)

Testing the demo will show you if the template is the right one for your business.

When you’re testing the template, you should check the site’s structure as well as the general appearance.

Bear in mind that the template will always have its limitations, no matter how customizable it is, so you should give the demo a thorough walkthrough to make sure there are no loose ends.

And for this, you should:

  • Make a mock purchase to view the cart, checkout, and payment pages.
  • Think about your intended web structure. Then take a look around different sections and make sure the chosen template will allow for smooth navigation (since that enhances the user experience).

It’s crucial that your website be intuitive to make it easy for users to find all the products since that leads right to the purchasing process.
