The Flatsome Theme
Flatsome is a WordPress theme that is totally specialized in E-commerce or building webshops. The theme works perfectly together with the Woocommerce plugin that is used by everyone today to create shops. This Flatsome Theme Review gives you a bird’s eye view of all its best features.
Flatsome Theme Review Studio
Apart from a single professional designer, there is really no one left who starts a website from scratch. Practically all themes (also free) offer a wide range of complete demo websites and many more prepared sections. The Flatsome theme is not left behind and now has 300+ pieces in its range. With no more than 1 click you can install such a design in your website and from there you start working on your own corporate identity. All you have to do is delete what you don’t want to use and replace the rest of the images and texts with your own.
Flatsome's Loading Speed
Flatsome has heavily improved the loading time of the theme with one of the latest upgrades. The alleged data shown in the image below seems a bit exaggerated to me and I have not checked. It is clear that the theme is fast. As you probably know, Google and visitors place great value on fast-loading websites.
Flatsome's UX Page Builder
Flatsome is a real Woocommerce theme and is full of professional gadgets that make every webshop a success. I can’t show everything in this Flatsome Theme review, those features below are just a part. If you like to see them all, check out Flatsome’s own website.
Woocommerce Product Pages
Flatsome comes with beautifull pre-designed product pages. With Flatsome it is also possible to use different styles with different products, as many as you want. There are few themes that offer such a wide range of Woocommerce pages, this feature is very nice.
Flatsome Shape Dividers
An impressive feature in Flatsome is the number of different headers that the theme makes available. Aside from the standard headers, there is also a header builder that allows you to customize every little detail in your chosen header. Below you can see a number of these headers.
Flatsome Review Elements
The Flatsome theme comes with a nice number of widgets in its UX-Builder. I say a nice number because of course we cannot compare this with the huge range that an Elementor page builder has to offer. Below are the main widgets in the image.
Flatsome Theme Review Conclusion
During this Flatsome Theme review I showed you the most striking features for me. We can safely say that Flatsome is a great theme for creating webshops. This is what it was made for from the start. The fact that it is also a corporate theme was only added later and for such websites I would certainly prefer to use a theme like Divi or possibly another good theme with the Elementor page builder.
Let’s continue this Generatepress vs Flatsome Review with the Generatepress Theme.
This Generatepress review will quickly show you whether this theme is suitable for building your latest project. According to the builders, Generatepress has been developed for the construction of the perfect shops, corporate websites and blogs. In addition, the theme had to produce lightning-fast loading times.
Apart from the free version of Generatepress that can be downloaded here, the theme also has a very good pro version.
Generatepress Review Demos
A while ago, Generatepress everywhere indicated that it is so compatible with Elementor and Beaverbuilder. This is still the case but since the introduction of their own block builder many of the demos are before that. Generatepress currently has a total of 60+ demo website that can be installed with 1 click. Watch the video to get a good impression about their demos.
I personally don’t know of any faster loading themes than Generatepress except maybe Astra. The theme is really insanely fast, comparable fast to minimalist themes that can do nothing. But Generatepress can do a lot and we are dealing with a special theme here. Below is how their own site loads in a second.
Generatepress' Schema Mark-up
Already built into Generatepress is the Google Schema Mark-Up. It automatically generates rich snippets for your pages, making them easier to find and more frequently displayed.
Generatepress & Woocommerce
Finally, I would like to indicate in this Generatepress review that this theme is also great for building online stores. It offers many features that give your shop a professional impression and building the shop is incredibly fast and smooth. Check the video if you have 2 minutes.
Generatepress Review Pricing
This theme has very reasonable prices. For $59 you can install it on 500 websites, so basically unlimited. View the Generatepress pricing page here.
Generatepress Review Conclusion
Generatepress is installed as a free version on 4 million sites and the pro version on 90,000 sites. This is of course not for nothing and indicates what a good theme this is. The theme is indeed lightning fast, very versatile and has beautiful designs that can be adjusted with elite page builders or their own Block Editor. Definitely recommend this theme.
Flatsome vs Generatepress Conclusion
Generatepress and Flatsome are both great themes in their own way. Flatsome does what its builders say and that is to provide the basis for the almost perfect webshop. But Generatepress also builds beautiful web shops. This theme loads amazingly fast and is easier to understand for beginners because there are far fewer settings. My preference is for Generatepress.
