X-STORE THEME (Total vs X-Store)

X-Store Theme review


X-Store is one of the Woocommerce themes that stand out due to its high number of shop demos and numerous special shop features. The theme comes with the most popular page builder out there, Elementor and the Bakery page builder. This theme was specially developed for the construction of web shops and that is noticeable. I can tell you in advance that this is a fantastic theme because I have created a number of shops with it.

X-STORE: INSTALLATION AND DEMOS

Installing X-Store Theme 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. X-Store offers no less than 100+ webshop demos. These are beautiful complete designs for web shops in many niches such as furniture, tools, clothing, etc. In addition, there are 350+ complete sections that you can use in your designs.

X-Store Theme comes standard with the Bakery Pagebuilder and the Elementor page builder. Elementor is one of the best page builders out there and especially when we talk about the pro version, so it certainly stands out for my choice. But all 100+ shop demos have both an Elementor and Bakery version as seen above, the choice is yours.

X-STORE: SPEEDTEST

We perform a speed test on X-Store 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 excellent as can be seen in the image below.

X-STORE REVIEW: CSS/JS GENERATOR

One of the top features that the theme offers to achieve great loading times is the option to only be able to pack the necessary CSS and Javascript together. Thus, your pages will not load any code that is not used on the page.

X-STORE: HEADER BUILDER

Advanced styling options and multiple HTML elements in the headers, anything is possible. X-Store also has a lot of standard header styles that can be installed with 1 click.



X-STORE: WOO PRODUCT PAGEBUILDER

Okay, let's start with the countless Woocommerce features that X-Store offers. With the Woocommerce Product Pagebuilder you can really customize everything on the product pages without having any technical knowledge. You will be amazed at the ease with which you can style your page yourself.

X-STORE: WOOCOMMERCE AJAX FEATURES

Ajax more or less means that you do not have to go to another page for certain actions, but that they run via a pop-up. Search, filter, wish list and shopping cart can all be opened in a pop up. You can set all this yourself, what is and what is not.

X-STORE: WOOCOMMERCE EMAIL BUILDER

I have been a web designer for 15 years and many customers want to be able to check the emails sent by their shop. There have been plugins for this for a number of years, but this is the first time that I see that a theme has integrated it. X-Store thinks of everything you could wish for in your shop, we have a top Woocommerce theme to do here.



X-STORE: WOO OFF-CANVAS FEATURES

A number of topics have already been discussed above at "Ajax features" so I will not list everything. Below in the image you can see that products can be viewed quickly, your account information or your shopping cart.

X-STORE REVIEW: PREMIUM PLUGINS

To be honest, I don't know of any other theme that has over $ 500 worth of 3rd party plugins in its arsenal. Of course there are certainly themes that have practically all functions of these plugins and more just as standard in their theme, such as with Divi Theme is the case.

X-STORE THEME REVIEW: PRICING

In my opinion, the price of $ 39 is very okay, but only if you are looking for a good webshop theme for only 1 project. In the case of 2 or more web shops, other themes are much more attractively priced and in some cases even better than X-Store. Check here the best webshop themes for [2022]. X-Store is so specialized in the webshop that if you are looking for a theme for a different type of project such as a blog or company website, I would certainly choose another theme.


X-STORE 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 page builder and that's great too. Yet it is true that, as I indicated in the chapter for the price above, that boss is 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! X-Store comes with Elementor, but that's the free version we're talking about, not the pro version.

TOTAL THEME (Total vs X-Store)

Total Theme review


The Total Theme has been around since 2013 and has had little fame until now. After some radical improvements, the theme is now on its way to a good position in the rankings for best selling themes on Themeforest.net and automatically enjoys more fame.

Total Theme review: Rating

An average rating of 4.86 out of 5 is very good in this marketplace and in general too. It is therefore not surprising that more than 50,000+ units have been sold in the meantime. The best rating I know is 4.93 which is Divi scores and that is not on a marketplace but on Trustpilot a reliable independent rating.

Total Theme: 40+ Demo Websites

In this Total Theme review, let me start by paying attention to their demo websites. In the introduction image at the very top you can see how they advertise themselves having 40+ demo websites. Not a very high number in itself, but the fact that they indicate it shows that they are proud of it. These demos are extremely well taken care of and there are real demos for all kinds of niches of a very high quality. I show a few of them below, but feel free to view them all on their own sites.

Total Theme: Section Templates

In addition to the demo websites just discussed, there is an even larger number of section templates at your disposal. Ready-made sections that you like can be dragged into your page. The number of combinations is unlimited. In this way you save a lot of time by not having to build everything yourself.

Total Theme: PageBuilder

The theme focuses on the use of the WP-Bakery pagebuilder. This page builder has been around for so long but can still compete with the best pagebuilders. Not that I prefer it but I've worked with it a lot and in a pleasant way. Here you have the full version available, a tuned version with extra elements in it. A fine tool.

Total Theme Review: Elements

Elements are the building blocks you place in the sections and columns and make up the actual design. At the same time, many widgets are also functional. You can see the main ones in the image below.

Total Theme: Colors

The Total themes has standard color combinations that you can choose from. In addition, you can also organize the colors yourself and you have a gradient builder as shown below. Speaking of gradient builders, view here Divi's brand new gradient builder that can do much the same as the one in Photoshop.

Total Theme Review: Woocommerce

The Total Theme is 100% compatible with Woocommerce, but at first glance I don't see any fantastic extras for it like real Woocommerce themes have. If you are building a blog or a corporate site, a simple shop next to it may also suffice. I would not use the theme for a real webshop.

Total Theme review: Conclusion

Listen, this is a fantastic theme but you have to pay for it, and then you are better off with other themes on the same marketplace. They offer more value for money. If Total would lower the price a bit, it would become more attractive. If you are really looking for an elite Wordpress theme, read my best Wordpress themes for [2022].

TOTAL VS X-STORE CONCLUSION

First of all, thank you for reading this Total vs X-Store comparison to the end. X-Store is a real Woocommerce theme that one buys to build a shop, Total is more all-round. Both themes load quickly and have very beautiful designs. X-Store's are focused on E-commerce design, making X-Store the better choice for building web shops. I would certainly build a webshop with X-Store, but Total doesn't offer enough for me.

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 [2022] than X-Store and Total.
