While some eCommerce plugins have several different themes available, this isn’t always the case. For example, it can be a bit difficult to find themes with pre-built styling for Shopp – even Mojo marketplace, which has tons of themes, has zero Shopp themes.

To give you an all-in-one reference, we’ve put together some of the best Shopp themes we’ve found.

Custom Shopp Themes

Okay, you probably don’t want us to start here. That’s alright, we’re doing it for a reason. There are several eCommerce developers that like to work with Shopp, and many of them will offer a complete site build. This allows you to either prep designs to for your new website to be sliced and developed, or you can work with the developer to build your site from scratch.

Not only will this include Shopp support, but the theme will also be made to your specifications. For example, here’s an example of a custom Shopp theme (and beautiful leather items!) made by CGD, Inc.

Free Shopp Themes

Themes that include specific styling for Shopp are hard enough to find, so free Shopp themes are far more difficult to come across. We’ve tried the Shopp eCommerce themes at 3oneseven, but they’re all out of date.

The good news is that Shopp plays fairly nicely with many WordPress themes, so you can probably choose a free theme from the WordPress.org repository. Try a few out and see how they look with shop and checkout pages. While you may need to tweak some styling to blend in with your theme, these can be a good starting point.

For example, here’s what my Shopp product page looks like while using the Make theme from Theme Foundry:

While you may not get perfect styling for both simple and variable products, you’ll have a good starting point to work from for free, and can adjust Shopp templates as needed.

There are also a few premium themes available for Shopp that I’d recommend checking out. iThemes has a couple of Builder child themes that include Shopp styling. These themes will all have the same general layout, but you can adjust content areas such as the header, navigation, where sidebars appear and how wide they are, and more. I find Builder a bit odd to use, but it will allow you to create your own layouts, and pre-styles Shopp elements. Each Builder child theme is $80, or all Builder child themes can be purchased for $150.

The Depot child theme will support both your shop and single product layouts. Your shop page can use either the grid or list layout:

Product pages will correctly add all Shopp product elements, including options for product variations.

The Market child theme can be built in the same way – you set layouts, sidebars, and content areas, and Shopp styling will be included.

Elegant Themes also offers the Boutique theme, which includes styling for several eCommerce plugins – one of which is Shopp. All Elegant Themes are sold as part of a club package for $69-89 per year, or $249 lifetime.

Finally, you can also use Shopp with the Genesis framework from StudioPress. To do so, you’ll need the Genesis Shopp Fusion plugin, which adds Shopp compatibility automatically to most Genesis child themes.


Have your own Shopp themes that you like, or samples of custom Shopp themes? I’d love to hear more about them in the comments 🙂 .
