What Were the Best Selling WordPress Themes in 2019? (we asked 47 leading WordPress theme companies)
The year 2019 is behind us, and we look forward to the exciting new 2020 — a new year with new opportunities, new challenges, and new goals to achieve. And new WordPress themes!
WordPress is evolving, and the number of users and websites increases annually, and as I write this, WordPress is used by 35.3% of all the websites.
All of us WordPressers use WordPress themes on our websites. Do not forget to make your WordPress theme look like the demo after you’ve selected your favorite theme from the list. This will make your life easier. There are a plethora of both free and premium themes to choose from, and it can be both a time-consuming and challenging task to find a suitable theme from all WordPress theme providers around the globe which requires a lot of testing and experimenting. It’s easy to get caught up in those explorations which could lead to unwanted malfunctions on your website, so before you go crazy in installing them, make sure that you have a safety net to preserve your setup with a plugin like WP Reset. This handy little tool can allow you to save your environment exactly like it was before the installations and let you delete all of the ones that didn’t pass your requirement test with a single click.
But help is on the way to help you find popular themes, hence even the best WordPress themes available.
As a tradition, this is the third year I am compiling a list titled – What Were the Best Selling WordPress Themes? Previous articles you can check out here – BSWT 2017 and BSWT 2018.
I ask two questions to leading WordPress theme companies, and the questions were as follows:
- Question 1. What was your best selling WordPress Theme in 2019?
- Question 2. Why do you think your best selling WordPress theme is so popular?
This year, 47 WordPress theme companies responded. It is hugely gratifying, and the participation in the article series is growing each year.

It was this year’s edition of What Were the Best Selling WordPress Themes?. Once again, I would like to thank everyone who participated in the article with their WordPress theme contributions.
It is always enjoyable to put together such an article, although it is a time-consuming journey from start to finish. Some notes how to create the posts.
- It takes about one month to complete an article like this one.
- I have sent over 100 emails (plus 50 follow up emails) to WordPress theme companies. 47 WordPress theme companies participate, and that is close to 50% of the applicants, which I consider to be a significant number of participants.
- During these 3 years, a total of 68 WordPress theme companies have participated in the articles. But only 10 have participated in all the articles. MyThemeShop, Themify, Anariel Design, CSSIgniter, Catch Themes, PixelEmu, Organized Themes, Premiumcoding, aThemes, and TeslaThemes.
- 4 of the WordPress theme companies have the same best-selling WordPress theme over the years, and it’s MyThemeShop with Schema, Themify with Ultra, CSSIgniter with Olsen and aThemes with Sydney Pro.
I hope for more WordPress theme companies joining in next year’s edition of the What Were the Best Selling WordPress Themes?
Thanks to all the WordPress theme companies and superheroes who participated and contributed to this article.

I think someone make a mistake. Instead of stating the name of the best theme for each company, someone inserted a link with the anchor text of “WordPress theme providers” for the first few listings of the post. Might want to fix that.

Thanks for noticing that, something isn’t right here, definitely – we’ll fix that ASAP.

No need for any of these crappy themes in 2020.
Elementor or beaver builder, ACF plus a generic starter theme like Hello, maybe CSS hero for styling and away you go.
No bloated themes that you need to hire a CSS moneky to change basic styling because the customizer is limited. Oh the bloated plugins that come with these themes..
PS lets ee if this moderated comment gets posted, sadly it wont. But hey lets just allow comments which align with the digital bubble we have created in case our feelings get hurtsies.

Thanks for your comment.
I agree about the themes getting bloated, but I think they are (and will be for at least a few more years if not more) easier to handle for an average user than modifying a starter theme. But those who can handle starter themes and bit of coding can do miracles without them! Even bloated, don’t you agree that to an average user it is much easier to accomplish a good result (a nice looking website) through a template than a starter theme?

Can you tell which theme you have used? Pretty smooth and awesome?
