There has never been a better time to break into the ecommerce space or start a side hustle. With more users shopping online than ever before, you have plenty of fantastic opportunities to make money online through eCommerce. If you’ve already decided to build your online store with WordPress, and you’ve also decided that you’ll use the Divi theme, consider using a Divi ecommerce child theme to get your store up and running.
There are a few ways to build a WooCommerce online store. You could opt for a ready-made WooCommerce theme template such as the ones available from theme vendors and marketplaces, but these are rather set in their assembly. If you wanted to deviate from the structure provided in the theme, you’d find yourself at a loss. This is why we recommend using Divi in development as its user-friendly page builder will award you far more freedom and creative license than other themes.
In deciding to use Divi, you’ll also need to add a child theme into the mix. Sure, you could skip using a child theme altogether and decide to build your online store from scratch, but this will take countless hours and will become a problem if you want to create a custom look, feel or form. If you don’t have the web development skills or technical know-how to create something custom, you’ll find yourself struggling or outsourcing a developer.
Instead of wasting time wondering how to build an online store, decide to use the Divi theme combined with a Divi ecommerce child theme right from the start. This is a winning combination that won’t let you down!
In the following post, we’ll share some of our all-time favorite Divi ecommerce child themes. These child themes are beautifully designed and are jam-packed with specialty features.
