Minimog and Debutify are both highly popular Shopify themes. Both themes can be used for the construction of very nicely looking webshops. Minimog vs Debutify, which is the better theme? We start with Debutify which does not mean it would be better.
The Debutify Theme
The Debutify theme is free, but also has versions that you can do more with and that require payment. Let’s just call it a premium version, that’s how it works with other themes. Debutify claims itself that it is the best theme for conversion in webshops. I wrote a review for this product a year ago and was impressed even then. Let’s start quickly with this Debutify review.
Debutify Review: Load Speed
It is very important for both sites and shops that they load quickly in a browser. Debutify shows great results in this area as can be seen below. They don’t have a page they offer for a speedtest, so just tested their homepage on GtMetrix.
Debutify rates very high
As you can see above, Debutify is highly rated on various platforms. The 5 out of 5 rating on Google is of course exceptional. A good rating is very important for themes, because if many gave a bad rating, we already know that there is something wrong with the theme.
Debutify provides marketing strategies and tools to brand owners that help them maximize revenue growth. It is not enough to optimize for conversions. Debutify focuses on the more important thing, the revenue.
Their Consumer Heuristic Intensification subtly triggers all the “mental shortcuts”, which every human has, and channel it towards one goal: purchasing your products.
Downtimes in stores due to integration issues can lead to store downtimes that cost thousands or even hundreds of thousand per day. Debutify theme, Addons and Apps are built with the Primary Parlance Protocol.
This protocol ensures that the ecosystem communicates using the “language”. You can forget about integration headaches caused by multiple third-party applications and welcome lightning-fast loading speeds.
55+ Shopping Add-Ons
A total of over 55 add-ons just for shopping functions is insane. These add-ons are divided into Cart Maximizers, Loyalty Builders, Conversion Triggers, Shop Protectors. and Shopping Enhancers. I’ll go into more detail about these different categories below.
When they can purchase more, why would customers only buy one item? You can increase your customer’s average order value with Debutify Theme’s Cart Maximizer add-ons. This encourages them to buy more items.
With Debutify theme’s conversion trigger add-ons, make it easy for customers to purchase your products. You will save them time and make it easy for them to buy.
Happy customers are repeat customers. Debutify Theme’s Shopping Enhancer add-ons will make shopping easy for them. These add-ons will ensure that they are happy and content from the moment they start shopping.
From GDPR compliance to getting customers to accept your terms and conditions. The Shop Protector Addons by Debutify Theme protect your store and assets against legal problems so that you can continue selling without worrying.
While customers may move on, the best ones will always return for more. You can keep your customers coming back with Debutify’s loyalty builder add-ons. These are very well known add-on that most stores have.
Best Video Support
If you want to work on your webshop it is so easy that you get a quick answer from support but also that there are videos available for all kinds of standard problems that can arise. Debutify offers more than 100 videos that quickly explain certain things to you. I know of no theme with such an extensive series of tutorials.
EZ Theme Installation
Debutify Theme’s simple installation allows you to create a professional-looking shop in just a few minutes. To ensure you are focusing on the essentials, Debutify Theme will also guide you through the onboarding process.

It’s as simple as clicking the “Install” button to manage your Add-Ons. Each Add-On is designed to work within the Debutify ecosystem so you can spend less time fixing integration problems and more time selling.
There is so much more to tell about Debutify, but I assume I gave you a good impression. If you want to know more, read on on their own site where everything is explained in scents and colors.
Debutify Theme Review Conclusion
Let’s give a final verdict in this Debutify theme review. It should be clear that Debutify can only be used for webshops. In that area, however, it is really one of the best themes out there, regardless of WordPress or Shopify. This theme is very stable, you won’t encounter any errors and it offers you so many tools to make your shop a success that you can’t go wrong with Debutify. If you want to make money with a shop, take Debutify, an absolute must.
Let’s continue this Debutify vs Minimog comparison with the Minimog Theme.
The Minimog Theme
Minimog Theme's Rating
When we talk about the best ratings on the Themeforest marketplace, we should certainly not forget the Minimog theme. An average rating of 4.98 out of 5 is of course hard to beat. With this, the theme immediately scores high, practically everyone who bought it is extremely satisfied with it.
Minimog's Loading Speed
Fast loading times are very important today. Visitors leave websites that don’t load fast enough without compassion. A theme is therefore more or less required to have a good loading time, Minimog has that as shown above.
70+ Stunning Homepage Demos
More than 70+ homepage demos, all shopping layouts of course. You have a wide choice of designs and they are built for different niches. Like all top themes, Minimog serves you well with demos.
Detailed Instruction Videos
A theme can have thousands of features, but you must also be able to work with it. The Minimog theme offers clear videos about practically everything you can think of. You can always continue working without having to ask the builders questions. At least, this is kept to a minimum by the videos.
Minimog Theme Review: Mobile First
Play the videos to see how certain features function flawlessly on mobile view. The Minimog theme is mobile first, in other words everything has been done to achieve perfection in operability, loading speed, and design for mobile phones. Nowadays many people shop on their mobile so this is quite important.
Minimog's easy install + Try free with Foxkit app
Minimog is one of the few themes that you can really try installed before you spend your money. Of course, you lose a lot of time if the theme turns out not to be that great and you have to start over. The chance of this is very small, however, since the theme has an almost flawless rating.
Minimog's Features: In-Cart Offer
Minimog has many features that can bring you more sales. One of these is the In-Cart Offer feature with which you can recommend extra products in the customer’s shopping cart in a very simple way, without technical knowledge. Watch the 1 minute video below.
Minimog is full of features. Watch this small video for an overview of the many features or go directly to the Minimog site where you will get all the information about it.
Nice variation in Shop pages
Minimog is really well set up for building a professional looking website easily and quickly. You can simply choose the layout for your shop pages and the choice is huge.
Nice variation in Product pages
And the same goes for the product pages. A wide choice of layouts that have been well thought out. If you ever want something different later on, it’s just a few clicks away. WordPress themes nowadays have an E-commerce Builder with which you can organize everything yourself how you want, but for Shopify this is already a luxury.
Minimog Theme Review Conclusion
I’m going to end this review for Minimog. I assume that you got a very good impression of the theme, just like I did. Of course, it all started with the very good rating, so we’re not the only ones who are impressed. The theme has everything and much more to set up a great webshop. In addition, its installation is extremely simple and fast. Recommended. Read on on there own website.
Debutify vs Minimog Conclusion
These themes are both great for E-commerce. As good as Minimog is, the Debutify theme is simply one of the very best themes available for building webshops. It is really hard to make a decision, I give Debutify a slight edge. For any type of website other than web shops, I obviously prefer great WordPress themes. Of course WordPress is a different CMS system, so if you have a preference for WordPress or Shopify that will also have to be taken into account when deciding which theme is more suitable for you.
