What Makes a Theme Perfect for an Affiliate Website?

When you’re selecting a theme for your affiliate website, you need to keep a few things in mind. Different themes are designed for different things like business or e-commerce, and these are not always suitable for affiliate marketers.

Even general-purpose themes don’t tend to offer many starter sites or templates for content-focused affiliate websites.

Personally, when I’m building an affiliate site with WordPress I want a theme that:

When choosing a theme you’ve got two options;

You can go for a general-purpose theme that has some starter sites that will work well for an affiliate site. Hopefully, they’ll also have some patterns and blocks that can be used to complement your affiliate content.


You go for a theme that’s been specifically designed for affiliate marketing sites with features and layouts built-in to help you make more commissions. 🤑

I’ve got some themes from both options in this article. Let’s start with affiliate marketing focussed themes.

Best WordPress Themes Designed for Affiliates

There isn’t a huge choice when it comes to specific affiliate themes. Here’s three of the best that I’ve found. If you know of others, please let me know in the comments! ✏️

Coupon, Cashback and Deals Websites

If you’re looking for a theme to show off deals, cashback offers and coupons, ClipMyDeals is a good choice. However you’ll also find quite a few over on ThemeForest.

I’ve not tested them as, personally, they are not really the kind of website I’m into building.

That’s not to say they can’t be lucrative, they just seem like too much work for me. 😉

Popcorn Theme 🍿

Popcorn theme is a project that I’m involved with, and it is the theme powering this very website (which you might have noticed has the odd affiliate link 😉).
