In this post, we will walk through the best Shopify ecommerce themes for 2021 going by their popularity. So, sit back, relax and grab a cup of something caffeinated while we introduce you to a potentially perfect Shopify theme for your store.

Shopify Design: Online Store 2.0

Before we dive in and introduce you to the flawless crowd of; Prestige, Impulse, Warehouse, Motion and Expanse, we’d first like to talk about the key features of Online Store 2.0 for merchants who choose a corresponding theme.

In a nutshell, Online Store 2.0 provides Shopify merchants with a next-level standard of customisation and speed. With one of the platform’s OS2.0 themes, businesses will find that their ability to personalise and adapt their ecommerce presence on the web has never been easier.

To get started, simply use the drag-and-drop sections and blocks to create custom pages throughout your store without the need for writing a single line of code.

Extra Features

With OS2.0, merchants now have access to even more features with over 20+ sections to play with. From; product sale points, meta fields, collection templates and more, there’s an endless selection of features to choose from.


Wouldn’t it be great if you could keep current customers shopping? Cross-selling allows you to do just that, keeping the steady flow of custom rolling with consumers who already know and love your business.

With product recommendations, you can expect more from your customers and in turn, they can expect more from your store. So, push the limits of your current inventory and witness a surge in cart upsells with helpful customer suggestions.

Powerful Promotions

Keep your customers shopping with maximised product awareness with Shopify’s versatile custom promotion designer. If you didn’t know, the designer is now available for all merchants to utilise, no matter what template they choose.
