Multiple blogs are comparing Flatsome to Woodmart, but they don’t focus on theme performance. Because speed is critical for online stores, our blog post will focus only on theme performance.

The data below is from our yearly WooCommerce theme performance benchmark. We’ve created the test so that everyone can make an informed decision when choosing a theme. To see all the themes tested, the methodology, and full results, read the fastest WooCommerce theme.

The 2020/21 test was done in mid-December 2020.
