How Much Are WordPress Premium Themes?

by Hough on May 23, 2012

You can find and preview Premium Themes from a number of places.

If you wish to purchase from the WordPress site you can find their themes and prices in the WordPress.com Theme Showcase or right in your WordPress.com dashboard under Store.

WordPress premium themes range in price from about $45 to $100 and you have a 30 day refund period to try out any premium theme. You can also view a demo version of the theme and check out the features it offers.

  • Each premium theme you purchase can only be used for that one blog.
  • You do not need to code to use a premium theme and you can find support for the theme from the premium theme support forum.
  • Premium Themes are customized for WordPress.com usage only, and cannot be transferred to self-hosted WordPress.org sites.
