What You Should Know Before Deciding to Purchase a ThemeForest WordPress Theme?

If you are interested in purchasing a ThemeForest WordPress theme from the Envato market, well since this is a huge theme market it’s better to know some tips first. Like the themes that have good customer support, are up-to-date, and more. Let’s dig into them.

Let’s go to the official website, www.themeforest.net/.

Themeforest Site

And for example, let’s search “blog WordPress theme”. From the search result, open the themes that you are interested in new tabs.

First Things to Check

I decided to check the first theme from my search result, which is MyVoyage the first things that I look at before going to dig further are the number of sales, the release date and the last update.

This is a new theme that has been published only a few days before the time that this post has been published. So 23 sales in the first week aren’t that bad. And if the theme is old and hasn’t been updated in more than six months, better to stay away from it. Because, the main reason is that likely it won’t be compatible with the newest WordPress versions, and it’s probably dead and won’t get any more updates.

The Number of Sales

Even if the theme gets regular updates, but the number of sales is very low. This is some kind of red flag, and you probably should stay away from it too.

The low number of sales might be an indicator for many reasons behind. It might be that people or bloggers find it slow, it crashes or other problems, and it has a bad reputation. It’s not popular at all and people aren’t finding it at all. Or people don’t like its design and many other reasons.

All this will lead to a sooner data where it will not be supported, and it will die.

Check Out For The Comments

Well, the first thing to check is what people think about it. Are they satisfied or not with the product?

Also, you might want to check some questions if they are. For which you can distinguish, how fast and good the customer support team is. And if there are no answers at all for some days or weeks, this is another red flag, that you won’t get any kind of support, and you probably should stay away from that theme also.

Summary

Obviously, these are not all the things you should look at before you decide to go and purchase. You should check some more things if the theme is optimized or compatible with the builder you are using and some more other technical stuff. But these are more specific, and tips that I wanted to share with you are more general and can be used no matter what kind of product you are searching for.
