#3. Paid Apps to Design Your Ecwid Store

A third way you can create an Ecwid theme is using an app in Ecwid’s app marketplace. However you will have to pay attention to pricing. 

#4. Ecwid Theme Using a CMS

Now if you’ve tried all of these methods and you found that you weren’t able to customize your online store to match your brand the way that you would like then, here’s another alternative.
 
You can use a CMS or a content management system. You might have already heard of WordPress, Wix or Weebly.  These are all content management systems, and they allow you to create and design websites. 

Ecwid Themes for WordPress

You might already be using WordPress and if you’re looking for an Ecwid-specific Theme to design your Ecwid store on WordPress.
 
Bad news.
 
You will find lots of things that exist online but they’re not Ecwid specific themes. They’re actually WooCommerce themes, or general themes just for WordPress. You could pretty much use any WordPress theme.
 
A good example of that is my own website. Head over to daniella.io/store and you’ll see a normal WordPress website.
 
It’s not an Ecwid specific theme. It’s not an eCommerce theme. It’s just a very simple WordPress theme, and then I added my Ecwid store right within that theme. 
 
What I’m getting to is that you don’t need an Ecwid specific theme to customize your WordPress site and integrate your online store.
 
If you would like to design your Ecwid site quickly and easily, I recommend Elementor for WordPress. It allows you to build a custom WordPress theme quickly and easily!

Ecwid Themes for Wix Websites

Another content management system that you might want to have a look at is Wix.
It’s important to know that if you’re using Ecwid with Wix then you don’t need Wix’s eCommerce solution and you don’t need their paid eCommerce themes. 
 
You can simply choose whatever Wix theme you would like and design it to match your brad. Wix is the best solution to go with if you would really like to customize your online store and get it to match your brand quickly and easily. Use Ecwid CSS codes to do so.
