Why Themeforest is a best marketplace for themes and plugins ?
If you do not already know, ThemeForest is a huge marketplace of pre-made themes for sale for a variety of CMS platforms as well as HTML websites. ThemeForest is owned by Envato which has several different websites under its brand like CodeCanyon, AudioJungle, GraphicRiver and more.
Buying themes from Themeforest has been a regular for website business and we have found some magnificent themes and useful plugins .. but there is always the word of caution… don’t go by the star and reviews. It all look good on their demos..
Always take a good look at theme and plugin documentations, there are some Good Theme Developers who also give you a beforehand experience on how the site would work and allow you to use demo with demo logins on their site. Always use it.
Make a point to send a pre sales query to the developers and others who have bought it and where are they using the same. it gets a better and genuine response that you can use.
We also had some issue with some themes and their developers as they were not refunding due to some bugs and misrepresentation of facts but that rarely happens. If you don’t like a theme after purchase you can contact the developer and if developers don’t provide you the services you can always write to Envato support team. Envato Support team is quick in reply and to my experience has been good till now with them.
Mind you , we have often got quick reply and support and even we got refunds (Credit in Envato)
