OpenCart is a free open-source platform for small and middle sized e-commerce stores. It has become very popular over the past few years – both among sellers and web developers. Premium themes for OpenCart are superb in terms of code and design and cover almost any subject, but if you just want to try this platform without things getting pricey, a free theme could be your choice.
When looking for free themes, the ideal method is to use only those developed by trusted theme providers or uploaded to official repositories – such themes usually undergo a review process.
Though most of the free OpenCart themes are available through their official marketplace, some major template developers tend to distribute them exclusively on their websites. For this reason finding a professional looking yet free theme, may be a somewhat difficult task.
Today we have collected for you 10 of the best free OpenCart 2.0 themes available on the web. Feel free to use them for your e-commerce stores.
1. Cosmetics Store
Built with Bootstrap 3, this responsive theme from TemplateMonster meets all the requirements of a modern e-commerce store.

Created as a free twin of a premium theme, “Free Cosmetic Store” is packed with features: parallax effect, lazy load and background video are just the tip of the iceberg. A closer look at its live demo reveals clever Google Maps integration, social media boxes and Ajax-powered functions, such as interactive shopping cart and search.
