You can choose the free Storefront theme, which is adequate if not the most exciting of themes. Or you can choose paid themes ranging from $59 to $139.

The other option would be to have a self-hosted site. That is a site hosted on WordPress.org software on hosting provider’s server.

Formidable even lets you insert other popular payment methods (like Stripe) into your forms. That means your customers can choose their preferred payment method during checkout!
