Many people had the experience of coming across a nice website and then wondering how to build a similar one. Nowadays many sites on the web are created based on a theme, that could save you a lot of time, especially for small and medium companies, for whom hiring a professional IT team is just too costly and the learning curve for starters is just huge.
Today I’m going introduce you ways of finding the exact theme your competitors are using on Shopify.
Believe me, it’s not that daunting at all. I’m gonna use Chrome as an example:
- Visit the Shopify site of which you’d like to find out the theme it’s using, I’ll use Furbish Studio here.
- Right click and select Inspect from the popup menu(press Cmd+Shift+C on Mac, Ctrl + Shift + C OR F12 on Windows)
- Press Cmd or Ctrl +F and search for “theme”, you’ll see the name of the theme:
Visit https://www.shopifyinspector.com/ and click on Install Free Plugin to Start, the plugin will be added to your Chrome browser
A click on the quick access icon and you’ll get to know which theme the site’s using. Shopify Inspector also has paid features like the site’s sales, top shops , however, recently launched products, bestsellers and traffic of this very site can be accessed for free with the plugin.
Note: Replace furbishstudio in the following url with other Shopify site’s name you’ll get its bestsellers
Visit http://whattheme.com/ and copy the url of the site you wish to find theme into the input box, you’ll get the name of theme. What Theme is not just for Shopify, you may use it to find the theme of a Magento, WordPress, Drupal site etc. as well.
