This is the typical cost of a WooTheme purchase. Like many of the theme companies out there they have subscritpon as well as just buying the theme outright.

This is Responsive. It is the most popular free theme. It has had 718, 285 downloads. There is also a premium version. Responsiveness is very big, right now, and it is important to have a theme like this.
Here is what the free version of Responsive looks like.
Although it is tempting to google it, always get them through wordpress.org, either the site, or through your back panel If you are going to go after a free theme, get it from wordpress.org. There is malware outthere disguised as free themes.
By going through the theme panel, which is also wordpress.org
You can go through theme forest, any of the other paid themes that are out there.
There are a ton out there, and you can often find out about them, by getting a free theme and upgrading, such as with cyberchip, which has the most downloaded free theme
Which is a bit of a toned down version of the backend you get from woothemes. But, we are here to talk about woo themes.
Main page. I have tried other themes. I really have, but I always come back to WooThemes.
Also for canvas
This one is for canvas
Woo has over 77 themes currently. They have had as many of 100 or so, but they are always coming out with new ones and retiring old ones. So, how do you decide. Do you build the theme idea first, and look for one to fit what you want? Or do you find something that you can build a site from, that looks like what you have in your mind.
… even if you didn’t know the question. But you look at this, and you say, yeah, well, that isn’t very interesting at all. Why would I choose something like that. Canvas is the signature theme of WooThemes, even though it isn't much to look at. There are 76 stylized themes that Woo offers at the moment. Some come and go, but Canvas has been there from the start and is therir most popular theme. You may ask why, since it is nothing to look at. Very bland. A blank canvas.
This is the backend of a WooThemes site. There is a lot going on here. We will come back to this.
Here is a close up of the styling options
Do these all look the same?
Another example, from the case studies of Woo
This one had to match the main site.
This is the layout for the magazine theme

Short codes. No need to buy plugins for buttons,
Info boxes, related posts, social button., horitonzal rule
This is good, the columns, but they are not as good at responsiveness as they could be.
And there is more.
The tutorials both from Woo themes, and from others.
But always check to see when it was written, or you might have problems as when Canvas (http://www.pootlepress.co.uk/2013/06/65-tips-tricks-and-css-tweaks-for-woothemes-canvas/)
Woothemes only a few extensions, but they are quite useful. Four of which I have used, the last of which I have not. Sensai
Like jetpack, comes with other stuff. WooDojo Tabs, WooDojo Sort Links, Woo Dojo Custom Code, WooDojo Login Branding, WooDojo Social Widgets.
This is very useful, although Canvas does come with its own slider, this one is more diverse. This one costs $49 for one license, $79 for five, and $149 for a developer license.

Why not use shopify? Why not use any of the other ecommerce plugins out there.
There are lots of other ecommerce out there, but WooCommerce has just done notheng but keep improving, since it was introduced.
Short answer, yes. Sometimes, if you aren’t using the latest version of Canvas, you will have glitches.
It depends. Do you need extenstions? No, then it is free
Each Extenstion can cost from $49 to $200. Makes estimating rather hard, at first.
They are not supported directly from WooThemes.
Othere gateways are available.
Well, except for all the crossed out identifying marks
Who knows, perhaps I”ll be singing ithrmees pluging when next I speak. I themes is the people who do backup buddy.
