Magento has changed the eCommerce industry by providing the out of the box store solution. No matter what type of products you sell, Magento fits. Most business owners are however not very in tune with how to setup their eCommerce store. This includes finding the right type of Magento templates. There are many free magento templates available online that suite both the Community and Enterprise stores. Let’s find out what features the template should have for an easy Magento setup.
Features for free Magento templates:
First of all look for a template that is responsive. This is very important now as more people are shopping from their smartphones and tablets. Use the site Responsinator to check the live demo of the template. You will be able to preview the template on all devices, making it easier for you to decide which template is good.
Next check the layout of the menu, categories, product arrangement, product description etc. Many templates have options for different layouts, colors and also fonts.
Also look for templates that say they are UX designed. UX stands for user experience. These templates are checked thoroughly keeping in mind the end user.
Another thing to check is whether the theme is available for your Magento edition. Sometimes free themes aren’t universal, but specific to either Community or Enterprise.
And finally check the reviews for any bugs or issues. Also you will read about how good their customer support is.
