Woostify is recognized as the fastest WooCommerce theme to help online stores create visually appealing and functional websites to increase sales. The theme is compatible with the most popular page builders and comes with powerful tools that make it simple to set up a custom online store. In this post, I’ll give you a quick overview of the Woostify theme and highlight some of its most useful features to help you decide if it’s a good fit for your online business.
Woostify Theme Overview
Woostify is a WooCommerce theme that is dedicated solely to enhancing online commerce to generate more sales and revenues. Nearly all browsers, website builders, and plugins (such as review and payment plugins) are compatible with the Woostify theme.
Woostify is said to be the fastest WooCommerce theme for building sales websites. At the top of their homepage, Woostify said that they are the best at three things:
- Being lightweight (so your site won’t take forever to load)
- Having an SEO-friendly layout
- And, being compatible with WordPress through the WooCommerce plugin.
This WooCommerce theme provides its users with various starter site libraries, each of which includes 20+ different, professionally-designed templates. In addition, the theme gives you complete control over your online store, which is a major selling point (from customers’ perspectives) that Woostify doesn’t highlight. Let’s review each of the key points in the next section.
Woostify Theme Review – How is it the fastest WooCommerce theme?
Woostify’s base installation is designed to be as lightweight as possible to facilitate faster page loads. As a customer, I know that the experience would be terrible on such a site where loading takes several seconds, even for the smallest action.
At present, demo page data analysis shows a rate that I was impressed with:
- Total Page Size: 26.6 KB
- Page Load Time: 808 ms
- GTmetrix score: 94/100
- Page Speed score: 84/100
To increase the conversion rate (ultimately resulting in more sales) online stores need to have high-ranking product pages. Therefore, search engine optimization (SEO) and conversion rate are always crucial in any online shop.
Woostify is a powerful theme that can give support to your online store. All of this is possible because the Woostify theme is developed to boost your conversion rate.
Woostify theme combines an SEO-ready layout and clean, optimized code to get you to the top of search engine results pages.
According to my experience, there are a few things they need to consider when discussing search engine optimization-friendly website design:
- Fast loading
- Fully Readable
- And, smooth navigation
I did a quick check of their showcase websites and found that the Woostify theme did follow SEO best practices, was fully responsive across devices, and had no trace of extraneous code borrowed from popular CSS frameworks like Bootstrap.
The readability of the demo theme is the best part; it’s beautiful and easy to understand thanks to the bold headlines and well-chosen font and color palette. The navigation is also great; it’s quick, responsive, and full of interactive features like image, slide, and video transitions and lazy loading (which is a method used to lessen the amount of information needed to load a page, naturally enhancing its speed).
Integration with WooCommerce
When you use a different theme outside of WooCommerce, you may encounter issues with WooCommerce’s extension. However, as Woostify is incorporated into the plugin, users will no longer need to be concerned about this issue. Updates, additions, and coding will all function without a hitch.
Whether you’re using WooCommerce or Elementor, Woostify will make your life easier. Widgets served for specific purposes, such as the Post Widget, Product Slider Widget, Slider Widget, Product Widget, or Product Category can be used to create a gorgeous selling website.
Even if you do not prefer to work with Elementor, Woostify is compatible with all the best page builders on the market (Beaver Builder, Divi, SiteOrigin, Brizy, etc.) as well.
- While templates are essential, they alone are not sufficient to meet the needs of different people. As a matter of fact, most Woostify users are pleased with the theme design because it allows for complete customization over the shop. They are able to freely visualize their store websites that adapt to specific customer’s needs which often varied across industries. Therefore, Woostify has given its users nearly infinite options for personalization.
Woostify Theme Review
Woostify theme is available in two pricing options: free and pro. It is frequently recommended to upgrade to Pro because you can do a lot more with customization, as well as Premium add-ons features such as the countdown urgency and buy now button, Woobuilder, header and footer builder, and so on.
Let’s examine the structure of their template.
While each template has its own design that can be customized, the entire site is well-prepared. Looking at the home page, I believe it is best suited for sales because they intend to show the product thumbnail prominently at the top right when you enter. I like how the headline promoting the current sale price is prominently featured on the header across all pages; it piques the interest of buyers, who always enjoy promotions.
This could be your website’s most visited page. And the Woostify theme has killed it. Whether you are a WooCommerce print on demand or physical product store, there should be room for you with a variety of product main pages and listing layouts. The interactive transition of the page is my favorite, as it is very appealing and appealing to display your products, making them stand out.
One of the most significant disadvantages of the Free templates, in my opinion, is that you cannot use the WooBuilder addon within the free theme. With WooBuilder, you can make any changes to your store, such as, shop pages, single product pages, cart pages, checkout pages, thank you pages, etc. This is also the selling-point that makes Woostify stand out among its competitors.
Besides, in the free plan, product swatches and size guides are not included. Yet, I know that these are always critical for customers when shopping online. Furthermore, you will be able to generate sales more easily if you purchase the pro version. Features like “Quick View” (which lets customers see information like price, category, tags, and product image size without having to click through to the product page) and “Sticky add to cart button” (which lets you set up a floating ‘Add to cart’ button at the bottom of your product page) can be included on the primary product page. And other useful features included in the premium packages, for example, Countdown Timer, Variation Swatches, Mega menu, Sticky header, Ajax search, etc.
Additionally, there is an interesting feature that will impress you a lot, which is the Smart Product Filter. This addon offers a lot of features that make the searching products process faster and easier, resulting in a better shopping experience and more sales.
These are totally worth investing in to let your customers have smooth experiences.
The blog page is divided into two columns: the article and the most recent posts. All blog posts have large featured image thumbnails, and comments can be found directly beneath the articles. The search engine is designed in a round and convenient manner, with a tag that helps the customer easily find what they need.
The contact page is divided into three rows: sitemaps, contact messages, and user information. In my opinion, the left column is an excellent place to list basic contact information for the store.
Although I would prefer to have a FAQ layout pre-made for the site, online store owners should think about including it.
Woostify has both a free and 3 premium versions. While the free edition has its benefits, it’s ideal for individuals just getting started in eCommerce but don’t have huge money to devote to a website. By contrast, the paid theme versions should be most suitable if your company’s rapid and long-term expansion is a priority.
1. Individual / Professional / Lifetime
Initially, it is suggested that you make a payment according to the number of sites you intend to set up for your business.
Woostify Personal plan is the way to go if all you need is to manage a single site. Woostify Professional plan is ideal for businesses with fewer than three sites, while Woostify Agency package is best suited for a large company that plans to launch an unlimited number of sites.
2. Annual / Lifetime
The second consideration is whether you intend to use Woostify permanently. Annual plans cover maintenance and updates for a single year, while lifetime plans do so indefinitely. As a result, the latter is recommended because it is surprisingly cheaper than annual payments while still being affordable in light of the benefits it offers. The pricing deals are as follows:
No matter which plans you choose, Pro users have all access to their add-on features. For further details, you can take a look at the list of premium Woosity’s addons.
To conclude, from my experience with Woostify, it has done a great job of being a theme specialized for online shops. If you are currently a WooCommerce shop, I recommend trying it out with the free version and then upgrading later on if it suits your needs.
