Porto vs Woodmart Theme comparison  💥
Woodmart vs Porto, these are two real Woocommerce themes, in other words they are specially designed to be able to build great web shops. Both Porto and Woodmart are sold through the Themeforest marketplace, and neither has a free version. We start with Porto without it meaning it is better.
PORTO THEME (Woodmart vs Porto)
I will discuss here the Wordpress version of the Porto Theme. There is also an HTML 5 version that has been around much longer, that you can find here. But we will discuss that another time. The Porto Theme has risen sharply lately, although it has always been among the best themes.
Porto theme review: Rating
When we check out Porto's rating on Themeforest, it is indeed 4.92 out of 5. I know the site and all the themes very well there, and 4.92 may very well be the highest possible rating for the 20 best-selling themes. There are themes with a higher rating, but not on Themeforest. Porto has been sold over 78.767+ times and 2855 people have given a rating, so that is very reliable.
Porto theme review: Demos
The theme has gone through some pretty extreme improvements that we're going to talk about now. Just like any other self-respecting WP theme nowadays, Porto has ready-made demo websites that can be installed with one click. They have added 30 of these since the last upgrade, bringing the total to almost 100.
The nice thing about demos is that you can make a quick start. The website is already with the wrong photos and texts in principle. So put your logo in it, adjust texts and photos and you are well on your way to having your own site.
Porto theme review: Webshops
66 multipurpose demos are available for all conceivable niches that can be used to create beautiful corporate and private websites. It is great that no fewer than 33 demos are ready-made shops. From here you can quickly start a webshop.
Porto theme review: Speed
In the meantime, no theme wants to be left behind in terms of loading times or speed, as Google attaches more and more value to this. Porto is therefore also built with a fast code that ensures good loading times in browsers. Porto also has a built-in speed wizard that helps you make your website even faster, which is quite unique. Of course you can also do this yourself if you read my tutorial here.
Porto theme review: Pagebuilders
The Porto theme comes standard with the in my opinion very good WP Bakery Pagebuilder. A solid page builder that has several third-party plugins available to extend the elements. The theme is also fully compatible with the Elementor page builder, one of the best out there in this area. Among the demos you will find about twenty layouts that have been made with it, so that you can work with Elementor after you install one.

Porto theme review: Header builder
The header is like a grid where you can drag and drop elements. So it is easy even for laymen to build exactly the header they had in mind. A cool tool! We can't help but give the full marks for this in this Porto theme review.
Porto theme review: Elements
Porto currently offers 33 elements for the Bakery Pagebuilder, which, as mentioned before, is easy to expand with plugins.
Porto theme review: Revolution Slider
The Revolution Slider is by far the best slider plugin. There are a lot of options, which takes some getting used to if you do not know the plug-in yet and also after a major upgrade as has only happened with the new version 6. However, the documentation of the plug-in is very good, which means that you will quickly discover how everything works. Google searches also always help me with that. The good side is that once you get used to it, you don't want anything else. There are practically no limits to what it can do and everything works smoothly.
Porto theme review: Conclusion
I think the Porto theme is great. The demo layouts are beautiful, the setup of the theme is quick and easy, and it has a good loading time. The theme is indeed very suitable for building shops and the header builder is of course fantastic. The price is just standard for themes on Themeforest so that's okay too. The theme offers great value for money.
WOODMART THEME (Woodmart vs Porto)
Woodmart is one of the Woocommerce themes that are rapidly emerging. Not surprising because the theme offers many special qualities and is now also compatible with the most popular page builder out there, Elementor. The theme is suitable for any kind of shop and has little to do with wood, even though the theme is called that way. This theme has been specially developed for the construction of web shops, so I expect a lot from it.
Below you can see the appreciation that Woodmart gets from people who bought the theme, and I must immediately say that 4.95 is a score that hardly occurs with themes on the Themeforest Marketplace.
WOODMART INSTALLATION AND DEMOS
Installing Woodmart is very easy. The theme does not have a free version so you will have to buy it first and it can simply be installed via the standard Wordpress theme installer.
It is recommended to install one of the many ready-to-go designs. Woodmart offers about 60 very nice complete designs for web shops in all niches out there, so furniture, tools, clothing, etcetera. Below you can also immediately see how easy it is to adjust the color combinations in the layout.
Woodmart comes standard with the Bakery Pagebuilder, but since version 5.0 the theme is completely compatible with Elementor. This is a huge improvement, Elementor is one of the best page builders out there, especially when it comes to the pro version.
We perform a speed test with the theme under quite optimal conditions, so with cache plug-in and all images optimized. This theme does not indicate that it is specialized on loading times, but the results are very good as can be seen in the image below.
with optimized images and cache plugin
WOODMART HEADER BUILDER
Advanced styling options and multiple HTML elements in the headers, almost anything is possible. Woodmart also has ten standard header styles that can be adjusted with 1 click.
WOODMART HEADER EXAMPLES
Below you can see how easily Woodmart allows you to adjust the header and what a huge choice there is already standard without custom adjustments.
WOODMART THEME REVIEW MEGA-MENU
To have a beautiful mega-menu, people often spend a lot of money on expensive plug-ins. In the case of the Woodmart theme, this is not necessary because the theme comes standard with a great mega menu as shown below.
WOODMART QUICK SHOPPING
There are great shopping themes that have all the options a top Woocommerce theme should have. Woodmart belongs to this class and has quick shopping for your webshop as standard.
WOODMART THEME REVIEW: PRICING
The theme only has 1 price option and that is paying $ 59 for each separate theme. So if you have ten websites you want to install it on, you can, but it will cost you $ 590. In my opinion the price is very okay, but only if you are looking for a good webshop theme for only 1 website. In the case of 2 or more websites, other themes are much more attractively priced and in some cases even better than Woodmart. Check here the best webshop themes for .
WOODMART THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION
There is nothing bad to say about this theme. This is one of the best themes there is to build web shops and it is rising in the rankings and it is better with every upgrade. It works perfectly with the Elementor pagebuilder since the last version and that's great too. Yet it is true that, as I indicated in the chapter for the price above, there is boss above boss. The perfect theme for shops & websites is Divi and Astra is a very close second. These themes can be installed on multiple sites and the Divi Theme for example costs only $ 89, and comes with the Divibuilder full version! Woodmart comes with Elementor, but that's the free version we're talking about then.
Woodmart vs Porto conclusion
First of all, thank you for reading this Woodmart vs Porto comparison to the end. Both themes come with the Elementor page builder, these themes are apparently very well matched. Both themes do what they promise and are perfect for creating web shops. Woodmart is so specialized in E-commerce that I find the theme less suitable for building normal websites. Postage can also be used for other purposes than web shops, but there are certainly better themes for that. But Porto and Woodmart are more than worth their money, but that only applies if you want to provide a single webshop with a theme.
In case you want to provide 2 or more websites with a theme, I do not recommend both of these themes because then it will be much too expensive, since a separate expensive license will be required for each website. In that case, you can much better use Astra or Divi as it will save you money for multiple sites. In addition, these latter themes are ranked higher in my top 10 themes for  than Porto and Woodmart.
