Describe the experience

What makes a good Shopify theme is the combination of design, SEO performance and user-friendliness. The Impulse theme includes this plus much more. The out of the box features are powerful enough to service any ecommerce needs for medium to large store owners without any customisations needed, however if you require any additional features, the code is well written for any Shopify professional to build on top off without any trouble. Whilst there are cheaper theme options out there, the great support and ongoing upgrades make the initial investment well worth the expense.

About the Shopify business

Lykke&You is a small family-run dried flower store. Started out 2021 and quickly became Germany's No. 1 destination for high quality and modern dried flower bouquets or wreaths made out of dried flowers. Everything hand-made by experienced florists to provide consumers with products to make their homes a more cozy and beautiful place! Using Shopify as selling platform, Lykke & You was able to service 10,000 customers and collect excellent reviews. The Impulse Theme used on the store is heavily customized and truly appreciated by community and buyers for its clean and modern look and frictionless buying experience.

Describe the experience

Clean design, clean javascript code, clean modular css - easy to tap into documentation. Many aspects well documented and explained, others are self-explanatory. No bloat in code, no jquery, making it a perfect choice. Regular updates keep it a must-have install.

Feedback or suggestions for the theme developer

Continue as is, love the recent idea to showcase new elements via short videos (Oct. 2022, V7.10). Would be nice to optimise some (still) open Google Lighthouse bugs that could be easily fixed for the benefit of every impulse theme user (i.e. missing height/width from images, potential easy fix); or adding in code to optimise FCP (via preloading the respective image). Not sure why this is not done for everyone.

Describe the experience

The feel of the theme is very sleek. The design is professional and timeless, and my expectations for the theme were highly met. The theme works perfectly with my brand it doesn't take away from my products but enhances the store's appearance.

About the Shopify business

I'm a professional artist/painter who sells original paintings, art prints, events and commissions through my Shopify site. My business launched in 2020 but didn't gain sales until 2021. My target audience is professional women 35+ based in the United States.

Describe the experience

I purchased the Impulse theme because I liked the layout and aesthetic. It also includes features like announcement banner and email pop-up, so I don't need additional Shopify apps. Although the menu layout is nice, it was a little difficult to set-up. One con is that I can't change the color of the Sale and Sold Out notification on products without editing code. Overall, it's a good theme but may require custom coding based on your needs.
