ThemeForest, Envato’s burgeoning theme marketplace, is one of the world’s Top 300 most visited websites, providing BigCommerce’s theme authors access to an expansive audience of buyers. Through ThemeForest, authors can now leverage BigCommerce’s new theme framework, which introduces a new approach to front-end development, enabling them to create unique, dynamic and powerful storefronts optimized for the BigCommerce platform.

The BigCommerce category on ThemeForest will feature a new selection of themes, optimized for BigCommerce’s platform, each featuring:

  • Smart, fully-responsive and easy-to-customize storefront designs
  • Modern site elements that leverage the latest UX best practices
  • Design styles to support multiple vertical categories
  • Support for small-, medium-, and large-sized catalogs

“Design is a competitive advantage in today’s digital economy, and it’s increasingly important for merchants to have a website that is visually distinct and compelling,” said Russell Klein, senior vice president of corporate development at BigCommerce. “By partnering closely with ThemeForest, we are giving merchants an easy access point to our platform while also enabling the ThemeForest community to use our industry-leading design framework, Stencil, and join one of the fastest-growing ecosystems in ecommerce.”
