Botiga vs Divi

Botiga vs Divi

Here we compare Botiga vs Divi, two very popular themes with a particularly high rating. Divi only has a paid version (subscription) and Botiga has both a pro version and a free version. Let’s quickly see which theme offers more value for money.

The Botiga Theme

A theme that is rapidly becoming popular is the Botiga Theme from the aThemes team. It has been around for less than a year and has already been installed on more than 10,000 websites and that will soon grow much further. Botiga specializes in building webshops and works with the CoBlocks plugin to make Gutenberg a kind of page builder. Let’s start this Botiga Theme review.

Botiga's Rating 5/5

The reason the theme’s popularity is growing so quickly is of course its quality, which is reflected in its particularly good rating. So far only one person has given it a 2, the rest all gave the maximum rating of 5, really remarkable. This theme has a very good future.

Many people love the Botiga theme. It is simple and beautiful, which makes it a popular theme for shops. Today, there’s no need to be concerned about all the bells and whistles. Simple can still look elegant. Botiga is an example of this. This has the advantage that you don’t need to make many adjustments in order to create a webshop using it. You can complete your project in no more than a few hours.

Botiga's Shopping Features

Botiga is full of great shopping features that help you make your shop a great success and also give the shop a very professional look. Click on the images below to enlarge them.

Botiga Page Builder

Botiga does not use one of the well-known page builders by default, but can simply be operated with the standard Gutenberg editor. Not a particularly good page builder, of course, but since Botiga will mainly be used for creating web shops, that’s not a bad thing. People mainly work with Woocommerce for the products of course. If you also run a blog in addition to your wshop, I would definitely install Elementor.

Botiga Theme Review: Speed

Botiga loads very fast as shown in the image below. The test at GtMetrix was done with a good cache plugin installed.

Botiga Theme Review Conclusion

I close this Botiga Theme review with my opinion about the theme. I am very excited about both the free and pro versions of Botiga. The high rating that Botiga scores does not surprise me. The theme is great prepared for the construction of webshops, loads quickly and looks fresh and good. Recommended!

Let’s continue this Botiga vs Divi Review with the Divi Theme.

The Divi Theme

There has been no theme that sells better than Divi in recent years. In this Divi Theme Review, we’re going to see if that’s the case again this year. Divi Theme does not have a free version so all its popularity is only due to their pro version which is remarkable. Most of the best-selling themes also have a free edition with which they have made a name for themselves. Divi is just so good, it sells itself.

Divi's Advanced Gradient Builder

So let’s get straight to the point and start with one of the two remarkable new features in Divi. The first is the Advanced Gradient Builder. With this tool you can create the same gradients for your background and the like as in Photoshop. Divi’s gradient tool does not mix 2 colors like the gradient tools of other themes, but as many colors as you want. Check it out below in the image or directly on the Divi site.

Divi's Lay-Out Cloud

Immediately the next spectacular feature is the Divi Cloud. Immediately the next spectacular features is the Divi Cloud. As you already know, you can use Divi on as many sites as you want after purchasing it. From all these websites you can access your cloud where you keep all your important building blocks that you may need on these sites. The photo below clearly shows what kind of things you should think about. This feature saves both professionals and do-it-yourselfers a lot of time. Immediately view the information that Divi itself provides about their new Cloud.

Divi Theme's Rating

The Divi Theme was created by Elegant Themes which is a company that treats everybody right. This count for the clients that buy their themes, and also affiliate marketers. That everyone is extremely happy with Elegant Themes is easiest shown on a good review website like Sitejabber.com. On the image below are also the numbers from 2 other review site. They just score everywhere more or less 5 out of 5 on average.

Divi Theme Review Demos

Divi offers a very large number of demo websites and demo sections. The image below shows that for “Business” designs alone, there are 603 total layouts to choose from. With such an abundance of well put together designs, it is easy to find a suitable layout for every niche. Here you’ll find their complete demo library.

Divi Theme & Woocommerce

Have you always wanted to be able to customize all Woocommerce pages such as the product pages, check out and cart pages? With Divi that is all a piece of cake these days. Divi uses the so-called WooBuilder for this, the top of the line in this area.

Stunning examples of Woocommerce product pages can be seen here if you scroll down to half of the page and click on the 9 different demos there.

The DiviBuilder

Of course, the WooBuilder discussed earlier in this Divi Theme Review is part of the DiviBuilder. A lot more can be said about the DiviBuilder. For example, it has the best inline text editor on the market and is a well-oiled machine for the rapid construction of websites and webshops. Below is a quick demonstration of some features. The DiviBuilder can be tested by yourself here.

Divi Theme Load Speed

The loading time of websites is now of global importance and the latest speed upgrade that they have implemented at Divi is a good improvement, although Divi was already fairly fast. You can read more about this speed upgrade here.

Divi Theme Review Shape Dividers

You can create beautiful transitions between the different sections on your pages with this advanced tool. The same applies to backgrounds with, for example, transparent images. Here you can read more about Divi’s Shape Dividers (including video).

Divi Theme Effects

All wonderful what the Shape Dividers above can do, but with Divi you can apply many more effects and filters to your images, with Divi’s Effects. Here you can read more about Divi’s Effects (including video).

Divi's Split Testing

Split testing, also known as AB testing, is great for people who want to get the most out of their pages in terms of leads and conversion. Complete pages or parts thereof such as sections, images, or buttons can be made into 2 or more different versions that are alternately offered to the website visitors. Your own website keeps track of the statistics for you which version was more successful. Read here more aout Divi’s Split Testing.

Divi's Bulk Editing

Save a lot of work with this feature. In the past, many tasks within web design were performed countless times, which is of course very boring and tiring. What are the “Save as Global” and “Templates” with the Elementor page builder is called Bulk Editing with Divi. Read more about Divi’s Bulk Editing here.

Divi's Transforms

In the past, images were often modified in Photoshop before uploading them to a website. With Divi’s Transforms, that is no longer necessary. Standard images can be skewed and rotated in many ways. The handy thing about this is that you can make other adjustments later, just within the website itself. Here you can read more about Divi’s Transform (including video).

Divi Theme Review Conclusion

You will have noticed my enthusiasm for this theme in this complete Divi Theme Review. With Divi everything is possible and it is full of features that other themes do not have. It is not for nothing that Divi is the best-selling theme today, it is highly recommended. There is so much more to tell about Divi, but if your interest has been piqued, read on on their own website.

Botiga vs Divi Conclusion

My opinion regarding Botiga vs Divi: Any type of website can be built with both themes. Both themes load quickly and have beautiful demo websites. That said, it seems that both themes are practically the same, but that is not the case. Divi offers more of everything, and is better than Botiga at everything. In addition, Divi offers a lot of features that are not in Botiga. Divi is a much more developed and mature theme and the clear winner.
