The Best Shopify Themes for Mobile Shopping

To be honest, if you aren’t looking for a responsive design on any website, there is something wrong with your strategy. Everyone should have a website that is compatible with desktops, tablets, and phones. If you don’t, you’re making life harder for everyone and your sales.

With that in mind, nearly every Shopify theme is mobile compatible. But what makes some mobile sites better than others?

Look out for these key factors:

Check Out Process

If you can find a theme with an inbuilt one-step-checkout, you’re in business. Take a look at the checkout process – the simpler it is, the better. If you’ve found a theme you like but it doesn’t have this feature, don’t worry, you can install an extension later on that will streamline your checkout.


The best Shopify themes for mobile browsing are those that are easy to navigate. Look for a theme with a responsive menu, search bar, and category pages. Side bars and drop down menus will help your customers find their way without your directory taking up the whole screen.


Even though some themes are ‘mobile compatible’ they don’t look great on your phone. Do a quick preview to check what the pages look like. Common issues include text that is too large, images that take up the whole screen, and problems with embedded media.

The best thing you can do is take your theme for a test run and make sure everything looks the way it should. If you find it difficult or annoying to use, your customers will too.
