The year is 2017, and the multitude of WordPress themes out there and growing is simply mind boggling. The abundance of themes means there’s likely a theme that fits your needs exactly, though it also means one can easily be overwhelmed by all the choices.
When it comes to premium (paid) WordPress themes, the decision is further complicated by the standard “one site” license agreement- screw up and purchase a theme that you end up not liking, and you’ve just wasted your hard earned money. How many times have you anguished over which premium theme to purchase for your project in the face of two or more that both appear to be good candidates, not knowing if you’ve anticipated ahead of time all of your needs at the time?

WordPress Theme Clubs To The Rescue
This is where WordPress Theme Bundles (aka Theme Clubs) come in- now offered by more and more first tier WordPress Theme studios, they provide the best cost benefit proposition for people who are willing to pay a little more than the price of a single premium theme upfront. For that, these theme packages gives you access to an entire collection of premium themes, so you’re allowed to change your mind which theme you want to end up using after your initial investment. Furthermore, these theme bundles can be used multiple times on multiple sites, permitting you to use all of the themes in their collection on an unlimited number of sites without having to pay more. And all this for usually the cost of 2 to 3 premium themes.
Best WordPress Theme Club Bundles
In this post I’ll list 10 of the best WordPress Theme Bundles you should consider if you wish to:
- Use one premium theme on multiple domains without paying for a license each time.
- Have at your disposal an entire collection of premium themes for use on any of your current and future sites (including clients’), for cheap.
- Save time hunting for and evaluating premium WordPress themes from unfamiliar vendors each time you need one.
All of these theme bundles allow you to pay once to access an entire collection of premium themes for use on unlimited sites, with no licensing expiration date. Imagine paying just the cost of 2 to 3 premium themes upfront to get access to 60 or more themes that can be used on an unlimited number of domains. That’s the incredible value proposition of WordPress Bundles.

Our Personal Theme Bundle Favorites
Apart from the consistency in quality of all of the templates, Elegant Themes comes with the powerful Divi Theme and Builder, which includes a drag and drop visual builder that basically lets you craft your own perfect theme. The possibilities become endless with a little time put in. The bundle also comes with Bloom, a high converting email optin plugin for any site that collects email addresses. And last but not least, Elegant Themes has a very large following, so there are an abundance of tutorials and resources around the web to get help if you need it. To me, this is very important, as it means I’m not at the mercy of the Product’s support team for assistance.
For similar reasons as Elegant Themes above, Themify’s bundle includes a flexible theme called Ultra, with a visual editor built in to let you rip out and modify any area of the theme. Add a counter, pricing table, infinite scrolling and more with ease by selecting them from over 40 prebuilt components.
Themify has been nice enough to offer DD Visitors an exclusive 20% off coupon code for any purchase on their site. To claim it:
- Click here to visit the Themify site
- Then, use the code THEME20OFF when checking out of your purhase.
So which bundle should you go with if you want a visual builder, Elegant Themes or Themify? In my opinion it really comes down to which visual builder you find more intuitive to use. Personally Elegant Themes has my vote.
This is rather subjective, but My Theme Shop has the absolute best looking themes out of the box IMO. With over 93 themes and 16 premium plugins, each theme is meticulously crafted and feature rich:
It is however one of the most expensive bundles at $87 for the first month of unlimited access, then $19 each month for continued access afterwards. For that you are also getting in return superb support, however. From what we’ve heard around the WordPress community and reading customer reviews, My Theme Shop’s support is second to none in supporting their customers after you purchase one of their themes. If you need hand holding in setting up WordPress themes and modifying them, My Theme Shop is probably your best choice.
As you can see, WordPress Theme Bundles offer tremendous value for the buck compared to many single license, single premium themes that can cost upwards of $70 each. For developers that will be using WordPress on more than one site, these bundles’ unrestricted, multiple domains licensing could potentially save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. And that’s why in 2017, they are a smart investment for virtually anyone developing one or multiple sites using WordPress.
