New themes always pop up in the different marketplaces, so we decided to take a look around and take out a few of the newest OpenCart themes we could find.

We're eager to show you the themes we believe you need to seriously consider.

Even better, we will be updating this blog post with new OpenCart themes as we find new ones.


1 Anne

4.67 star rating. Anne is a freshly updated minimal OpenCart 3.x theme designed for online fashion stores.

The home page features a large slider with a call-to-action button and a navigation bar that looks excellent on mobile.

Anne has a lot of features built inside, like an elegant popup extension that greets new visitors and invites them to subscribe for the weekly newsletter.

  • Mega Menu
  • Buy Now Feature
  • One Page Checkout
  • Faceted Search (with Autocomplete)
  • Category Filters
  • Social Login



The category page is very clean and has a lot of useful features at the same time.

The filters include a price range and color options, as well as sizes and brands all wrapped up in a smooth design.

Anne’s category page is very simple to work with and delivers a pleasant shopping experience while you’re browsing for products you like.



The product page design features a large main product image with zoom on the left and the rest of the product details aligned to the right.

  • Product Options - selectable color and size options, instead of dropdowns. This allows faster selection of the required fields for an easier shopping experience.
  • CTA Buttons - the product page also features the Pre-Order and Buy Now functionalities.


This is wonderful for OpenCart merchants as the Pre-Order option gives customers a way to purchase products without stock statuses being an issue.

On the other hand, the Buy Now button leads customer straight to the checkout page after they click it. Fast and efficient.

The product page in Handart blends together with the page header to create a more immersive experience for customers.

Your product images come with a zoom and a customizable product details section.

There is a lot of room to breathe between the different elements like the main product details, description, related products and subscription form.

4 Shoppy

4.15 star rating. Shoppy is a theme that has already been on the market but it just got its brand new update last month. It now features a much more modern feel and new features, including GDPR Compliance!

Now we’re talking about a marketplace theme for large OpenCart websites with tons of products. And to support that, Shoppy is strapped with all the layouts you need, as well as a lot of features to make your E-Commerce convert that traffic into sales.


We enter the home page and the subscription popup is on point. Clean and easy to complete.

Moving on, we have a lot of things we need to analyze. First, the mega menu features banners and product images for customers to use and get around your store faster.

The different theme layouts feature full-width sliders, some of them don’t, and this leaves room for additional elements, such as free shipping announcements.

  • Drag & Drop Customizable Mega Menu
  • Lazy Image Loading
  • GDPR Compliance
  • Page Builder
  • Live Search
  • Countdown Timer
  • Quick Product View
  • Social Login
  • One Page Checkout



Apart from all the products in a single category, you have a Daily Deal on top of the page, a promotion banner, below the search and filters and product labels for discounts and sales.

The different theme layouts include a Price Range filter, as well as a countdown timer on products that have limited time discounts running.



The product page of the Shoppy theme features an image zoom when hovering and the countdown timer is present if the product is part of the limited time deals.

Apart from that, it's a clean and customizable design that you can easily adapt to your preferences with the page builder.

Shoppy is a powerhouse of a theme that allows a magnitude of customization options. No matter what E-Commerce industry your OpenCart store is part of, you can be sure that this theme will definitely give your online business a healthy boost.

5 Solve

5.00 star rating. The latest update for Solve came this month and it's fair to say it's one of our favorites. With its clean minimal design, large images and complete focus on what matters the most - your products.

The home page consists of a few important elements - a large full-width slider, featured products, trends, latest products, and a Browse by Category section.

  • Custom Theme Options
  • Fade Page Effect
  • Lazy Image Loading
  • Scroll animation
  • Image Zoom Feature
  • Previews for Sub-categories
  • Sticky Header
  • Sidebar for Search and Account Links


As in the home page, everything is focused on the large images in the category page as well. No distracting marketing materials or banners, no popups or a large mega menu.

Clean and simple. Category filter, category specific banner, lazy loading for the products as you scroll down and nothing but the product name and price.


Everything you need in a single product page. A large high-res image to nail your customer's attention, rating and a short description topped off by a bright and distinctive Add to Cart button.

The Latest Products section on the right give you more click-through rates from customers who are interested and make the entire product page have great conversion qualities.

A wonderful theme for OpenCart fashion stores that you shouldn't miss to check.
