WordPress is a content management tool that was originally created as a blogging software. Since its initial release WordPress has grown into something quite different and currently powers over 20% of the top 10,000 websites online.
While many of these websites are magazines, blogs, and portfolio’s others have used third party plugins to sell tangible goods via an eCommerce store.
WooCommerce is arguably the most popular plugin for those wanting to create an online store with WordPress. This plugin was initially launched on 27th September 2011 and has since been downloaded over 4 million times.
With the release of such a powerful eCommerce plugin it was not long before premium theme developers began releasing themes that had been specifically developed for use using the plugin, and of course WordPress.
These themes are some of the most sought after themes online, and therefore we would like to offer you our curated list of the very best WooCommerce WordPress themes for 2014.
