Nopsbit Review: Best Shopify Theme For Better Conversions?
Nopsbit is a relatively new theme for Shopify that has been making quite some noise over the last month. It claims to be an assortment of plugins to help you wit scarcity and overall optimization—all merged into a single theme for boosting sales.
The theme would net you $149 to use on a single site. If you want 2 licenses, it’ll be $249, and the largest available offer is 5 licenses for $439.
It’s definitely not a cheap theme, and that was also the first impression I had when I first looked at it. It also has a similar feel to large dropshipping stores you can find on the internet, usually with countless products under their catalog.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. Truth be told, I kind of like how this theme looks and what it offers. I’d even go as far as saying it’s an advantage; finding a good theme for big stores can be quite difficult.
Most themes aim towards smaller stores, and it can be difficult to build a good-looking store if you want to offer a big catalog like fashion.
Luckily, big catalogs are Nopsbit’s specialty, so you might want to take a look at it if that’s your goal. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what you’d get.
About the theme
The theme requires zero coding expertise, as with most Shopify themes, and it comes all ready for you to install. You get a web-based GUI that lets you personalize your website to your liking.
Another neat feature is that it comes with a bit over a dozen integrated add-ons, which also saves you money from having to get plugins separately with monthly subscriptions. You can turn on and off each app depending on your needs.
We’ll go through the different plugins a bit later on, but there’s solid amounts to save with this theme, especially with features like currency switching and upsells.
The homepage is quite standard: you can find a search box at the top, along with your account details and email address. The aforementioned currency switcher is also there, and your main menu and logo can be found right below.
Right of the bat, you might notice the “mega menu” feature; it basically lets you add several columns and images to your drop-downs. To the right, you can find contact details and your cart button.
Keep in mind all of these features are customizable, and you can straight-up disable the ones you don’t want.
Next up, we have the image slider; I’ll admit is quite big, and it’s not a very pleasant feature for me. It somewhat increases loading times, but thankfully, you can simply remove the element.
Then, we have several boxes for different functions: quality checks, guarantees, and even free shipping. They’re all customizable as well.
The next element is the classic collections for you to choose. The images look big enough, and they look great on many screen types as long as your images don’t differ a lot in size. You also have titles under your images along with pricing. The only element that looks a bit “off” is the variants right below the images, but you can remove them.
You get the option to add special deals if you want. When activated, it shows all the details from the product on the screen.
You can add a flexible banner, but you need to consider loading times before adding this and test after doing so. Right below that, we have the blog section; it’s quite big, and if you run a blog, it’s a solid way for promoting content.
The last element is a big Instagram scroller along with a “follow” button. You’re free to disable them if you want.
This section is quite large, and the default, four-column layout looks good enough to me. You get 4 different options above your main footer, yet they keep the background color in case you want to add features like guarantees or shipping details.
Under this element, you can find the same information any large store would most likely provide. We have social media icons, quick links, and the newsletter box.
You’re free to play with this section however you want and add the elements you deem necessary.
These pages convinced me of what this theme is capable of.
It starts off with a large picture to the left side, and users can click on smaller photos in this section. To the opposite side, we have the main content section with the product title, status, and reviews.
If you run daily deals, then the “sale ends” option will display for scarcity. You’ll also find your product’s RRP, sales price, and the discount coupon if you decide to use one.
Next up, we have variations and shipping price; you’re free to remove the former if you don’t have any. A nice feature here is how you can simplify the page, and you can display shipping locations based your visitors’ IP address automatically.
The buttons are quite standard: you get the “buy” and “add to cart” options, with the former taking customers straight into the checkout page. The wishlist is also available in this section.
Below, you can find the option to add text, which might be your refunds policy or whatever you deem necessary.
The next section includes more content: description, sizes, review, and shipping info. You’re free to edit or even remove each option, but I think the default layout already looks pretty good.
Scroll down a bit more, and you’ll come across a menu bar. This contains the name of your product, quantity, price, and variations you might have available; the cart button is also here. You can also disable it if you don’t want it there, but it looks fine to me.
The last element for the product pages is the fundamental “related products” section. A nice addition is the additional column on the right where you can include trending offers and “recently viewed” products. You might want to tone it down for smaller screens, though.
You can show a pop-up for a cross-sell once a product has been added to the cart. It lets you add more products related to your first purchase. The pop-up displays only 3 items, but customers can add as many as they want. Users might also click a “no thanks” link to skip this pop-up.
The cart page itself is quite simple, and it lists the products page. A feature I don’t really like is how it mentions prices twice as well as the total, but I’ve seen worse cart pages, so it’s relatively minor.
You can find an expiration timer on the top-right corner for scarcity, which is a nice addition.
You can find the shipping estimator and cart total below the pricing for the product. You have your standard checkbox to the terms and conditions below the checkout button as well; it’s a pretty nice addition since not all themes include this.
You also have a quick note for adding your refund policies or any text you deem necessary, and you have enough space for your trust seals below this section.
The last element is the sticky header at the bottom; it shows your cart expiration timer and checkout option again.
As mentioned, the theme offers several apps integrated into its code. They come for free when you buy the theme, so you get to skip monthly memberships.
You might already have an idea from the previous explanations: these are countdown timers, currency converters, pop-ups, wishlists, and both up- and cross-sells. A neat add-on we didn’t mention is a “customer recovery” pop up that lets you display a discount coupon or email opt-in for customers who click to leave the website.
You also get notified of any sales at the bottom of the screen. These are fake sales to make your store look more popular, and you can customize them to your needs. Other plugins include sticky carts, live searches, cookies banner, and FAQ section.
Nopsbit is actually a surprisingly good theme for people looking to build larger dropshipping stores. I can definitely say it’s among the best themes overall for Shopify, though there are a few details I wasn’t a fan off.
Finally, it looks quite good on mobile, but I’d recommend you check it out yourself before deciding.
