ThemeForest is an Envato marketplace that distributes themes CMS and HTML templates for companies, such as WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla. ThemeForest has built up a huge customer base of over 2.3 million users and has made its way on to several lists for the best and most popular providers of WordPress themes. It is the first port of call for most WordPress users and for very good reason.
Envato is based in Melbourne, Australia and was founded by Collis Ta’eed and his wife, Cyan, in 2006. ThemeForest is now one of nine platforms launched by Envato, which, with the slogan ‘Help People Earn and Learn’, was launched to create marketplaces for buying and selling digital products and to offer its customers informative blogs and tutorials. Other platforms include Tuts+, Code Canyon, Photodune and Audio Jungle. Throughout its pages the company sells more than 2.3 million different products.
Over 47,500 products are now available to purchase on ThemeForest, so it’s easy to see how things could get overwhelming. However, for ease of navigation the WordPress themes are divided into clear categories and can also be filtered according to their own description.
Behind the marketplace there is also a thriving online community that gives you top access to other Envato products. Once a member of ThemeForest you are a member of the Envato community, where you can comment on products, discuss questions in the forum and keep up to date with the latest news.
Not only can you buy on ThemeForest, but you can sell too. As an Envato author you will receive 50-70% on each theme or template sold. Due to the ever-increasing number of private developers and designers, ThemeForest has a particularly large and diverse selection of products.
