Hello

Could anyone please explain to me the reason behind the high pricing of Magento themes?

Is it because of the difficulty of implementing themes for it or is there something else we don’t know about?

Hoping for an answer

Cheers!

Most likely because there are less Magento developers out there and It is generally harder to create than for example a straight forward WP theme.

Magento’s core package has 16,334 files. WordPress’ package has 1,168 files. Think about that.

Learning WordPress is a cakewalk compared to Magento. Magento themes are priced above WordPress because it’s a significantly deeper platform and architecture with a learning curve to match. It’s built for mission-critical eCommerce. Developing for WordPress is not really comparable.
