There are three main reasons why you should purchase a premium theme compared to a free theme.
Some free themes are created by individuals to hone their skills or to increase their exposure. However, some free themes are created by individuals, and in such cases, it may be financially difficult to provide support to users who install a free theme.
Purchasing a premium theme increases the likelihood of getting answers to support questions. This is because keeping users happy is good for the premium theme developer’s business.
Creating a full-fledged theme is not an easy task. This means that a free theme will likely not have an eye-catching design. Also, since many people prefer to use free themes, your website may not stand out.
On the other hand, you can almost always find a good-looking premium theme that sets you apart from other competitors.
Websites of all kinds need updates from time to time. These updates may add some new features to the theme or bring the coding practices up to date with modern standards.
Regular theme updates are a resource-intensive task, but premium theme developers are more likely to undertake it because they have an incentive to do so. People will only purchase a theme if it is up to date and has many features.
Buying a theme along with all its premium plugins at a discounted price, as opposed to buying each plugin separately, reduces the cost of ownership.
Our focus in this section will be on helping you buy a premium theme from Codizad that best fits your needs, but the basic principles will be applicable everywhere.
If you are planning to buy a theme, there is a good chance that you have already decided what kind of website you are going to create.
Select a theme you like based on ratings, price, and total number of themes sold. At this point, you will probably see several different themes.
Once you have selected a few themes, it is time to find out a little more about which theme is right for you. Scroll down a bit on the theme description page and you will see relevant information such as when the theme was created and last updated.
Ideally, the last update of the theme would be best. Some theme developers prefer not to make major updates too often, while others make more frequent, incremental updates.
Make sure that you check all these things in the theme that you pick as well.
Now it is time to check the live preview of the theme to see how it looks in action. The live preview should be tried in multiple browsers on different devices to make sure it is working as expected.
These theme description pages do a very good job of listing all the features they offer. However, there are bound to be questions you want to ask about customization and other issues.
In such cases, the theme description pages are a good starting point. Here you can look at comments written by others and ask your own questions; you will often get a reply within a day or two.
Once you have done your research, it is time to purchase a theme with the appropriate license. For most people, just a regular license will suffice.
