The number of things a good Shopify theme can do for your online store is tremendous. By installing a premium Shopify theme, you usually get all the functionalities of a top-selling Shopify store and more. Today, we’ll be discussing a theme that has been popping up on my feed. We’re talking about the Nopsbit theme that everyone seems to be talking about. Nopsbit claims to come with all the plugins you need, such as scarcity plugins to boost sales and overall average order. A good theme is difficult to come by these days, especially for larger stores that can accommodate a large inventory of products. So, without further delay, let’s get to what you came here for, a Nopsbit theme review!
You can now find the theme online in different pricing for different licenses. So if you only need one license, it will cost you $149, 2 licenses will be $249, or 5 licenses at $439. While it does sound a little on the pricey side, look wise, it does look polished and premium such as the larger dropshipping sites currently on the platform, which is quite hard to come by. Most of the great themes on the market these days only cater to smaller stores.
Nopsbit Theme Review
Like most themes these days, Nopsbit is super simple to install, and it uses a web-based GUI system that allows for full customization. What you are paying for is a one-off fee, which means no recurring payments, even though you have access to 14 premium add-ons that you can decide to include. In this review, we will go through what the Nopsbit theme has in store, including all the plugins that make this theme stand out from others on the market.
Right off the bat, I already like this theme because it looks good even on mobile, and I think this is a crucial feature. Everyone shops on their mobile phones these days. If you do not have your store mobile optimized, you will lose your customers to your competitors who do. While Nopsbit is optimized for mobile, you do have to wait till the whole page loads before scrolling, but this is pretty standard.
Layout – Homepage
For this first part, which is the layout, let’s go through the homepage from top to bottom. The homepage is a standard one where you can find the search box, account details, and also where you can toggle the currency. In the next row, you will find your store logo and a dropdown menu where your customers can select which category they want to shop. You have your store contact details and your customer’s cart section on the right of this. All these elements are customizable. Moving down, you have a full-page image slider that displays the picture of your products. You can also choose to edit this section as most people do due to the full image slowing down your site loading time.
Scrolling towards the bottom of your page, you will find other collections displayed with large images. The images are labeled below with the title, price, and whatever promotional price it might have. You can also opt for a special deal option where the product details are displayed across the screen. Next, there is a banner that you can use to view special offers or any latest brand news, but again if it affects your loading time, it’s better to exclude this bit. Then, you get a blog post section where you can link your blog. There is also an Instagram scroller where you can even advertise a ‘follow us’ button so customers can easily follow your store.
A large footer with several columns sits at the bottom of your page. You can select how many columns you want and also edit the background color or any special features like shipping information or refund policies. Then, you also have your social media section where customers can visit your other sites. This section is entirely customizable, and you can choose what you want to add or scrap.
The product page is like your standard product page with a large image on the left and smaller options below it that you can click through. Then on the right-hand side, you have the product details like product name, price, or if you have any ongoing offers, it will also be displayed here. Other things that you can include are like details that you want your customers to know like the countries you ship to or shipping waiting days etc. Below this, you have the option to ‘Buy Now,’ ‘Add To Cart,’ or even ‘Wishlist’ the item if you are not ready to purchase. You can add other items below this like your store’s refund policy or shipping information etc.
Then beneath all this is a more extensive section for your product details. And as you scroll, you will notice the sticky menu bar that contains all your primary information. You can also disable this if you don’t like it. And lastly, you have the product suggestions that show your customer other related or trending products that they might want to add.
Whenever a customer adds something into their cart, they will be prompted by a pop-up of other things that they might want to include. This is an upsell tactic to compel customers to buy more items. You can advertise up to 3 items in this pop-up. In general, the cart page is simple, and you have enough information to check out securely. I, for one, dislike too much information in this section because it can sometimes confuse customers, and they end up ordering the wrong items, etc. What’s different with Nopsbit is that there is a countdown timer so that it creates a sense of urgency for customers to check out before their items are up for grabs again.
Underneath your product pricing, there is a section to estimate your shipping fees, and you will get your cart total. There is also a box where customers must click to agree to your terms of service. This feature is quite new, and customers must tick this before checking out. Including this ensures that you are protected when customers complain about long shipping times etc.
It’s not a good Shopify theme unless it comes with useful apps that can usually have you spending a lot if you download and install them separately. But if you use a Shopify theme, you will be saving big bucks because they will be included in the license. Additional applications with Nopsbit are such as currency converters, urgency boxes, product offers like upsells, etc.
One additional feature that I like is the pop-up message that customers get when they try to leave the website. The trick is that you can add some kind of incentive for them to stay like a special discount. Then, there is also the sales notification pop-ups that you might’ve seen in other stores that tell your customers if someone has purchased something from your store. This section is fake, and you can advertise whatever you want to get customers buying.
Overall, I think the Nopsbit theme is excellent. I have no complaints because most of the things that I dislike, I can remove them. For example, if the banners or large images causes your page to load slower than usual, you can just opt to leave them out and still have a good looking and functioning store. It is also suitable for stores with more extensive product inventories, but you still want it to look polished and organized. While the price is quite high, it is considered affordable compared to the other premium themes. Would I recommend this theme? Yes! If you have a more extensive inventory, it is worth checking out this value for money theme.
