What is TemplateMonster MotoCMS eCommerce?
Founded back in 2002, TemplateMonster is a well-known provider of beautifully crafted premium website templates. With more than 14 years of experience in the web design industry, their team of designers, developers, and marketing specialists have managed to get a pretty good grasp of the functional and cosmetic requirements to launch successful eCommerce websites.
This review specifically focuses on their custom platform MotoCMS, which offers full-fledged eCommerce support and for which a huge collection of ready-made eCommerce templates is available. We believe it matches the needs of users at all skill levels and has a large enough choice of themes cater to all kinds of business niches.
It is worth noting that TemplateMonster is also making their themes available for use on competing platforms such as Shopify, OpenCart, PrestaShop and Magento, so you can read on even if you have already made your choice for once of those!

They can be also organized into specific categories or grouped based on other characteristics. The admin panel also includes a separate section with all page templates included in the package. So, you can access any with a click and modify the layout on-the-fly.
