In an online chat, Matt Mullenweg was concerned about the recently observable trend showing that open web is under attack. Despite the word ‘attack’ seems to be hyperbolic even to Matt, the trend is perceptible (for more, just visit this page). Luckily, digitization is still on the way to embrace our global community by fueling the democratization and openness of the web. For example, firms and persons can go beyond their walls by using eCommerce platforms.

PAPPAYA – Multi Purpose WooCommerce themes with material design
This is our personal favourite – with the versatile Pappaya theme you can build a truly beautiful website for selling your goods. Design-wise it definitely stands out from the rest on Themeforest and the customization is simple yet offers enough features to create a very intuitive online store. The customer support is excellent and the Layero team provides timely response to setup questions and bug/compatibility fixes. We tested the Pappaya theme’s performance for page load speeds with Siteground hosting and we were really happy with it. Even when adding hundreds of products and when your WooCommerce products are heavy with imagery this theme does a great job – it’s lightweight, tests well with Google pagespeed and GTMetrix and not only on desktop but mobile too.
MUTA – One of the fastest loading WooCommerce themes
