SiteMile is a source of premium WordPress themes. They have themes for every niche. In this SiteMile Themes review I will show if websites built with these themes are not only great to look at, but also very responsive and scalable.
One of the main reason why so many companies use SiteMile Themes is because they are plug and play. Once they’re installed, you don’t have to worry about things like third party compatibility issues.
Every theme is entirely customizable, and SEO optimized according to standards for showing in search results. At least his is what SiteMile says about their themes. But is this really true?
SiteMile Themes Review
There are many various themes available in SiteMile portfolio. If you want to start an auction site, marketplace, transporters or a shipping/carriers marketplace, micro jobs website, classified ad site, create a website for a chore or task bidding, project bidding or make your own freelancer website, directory or review site, etc. There is something for everybody.
Here are themes that are offered and which you can buy separately or in a bundle as part of club membership:
This theme has a lot of great features for both auction posters and auction bidders. Its comprehensive backend includes integration with multiple payment gateways.
You can also use the Auction theme as a marketplace theme. You can start your own online silent auction site or real market website. You can also choose parameters such as an option only to sell “buy now” physical or digital products.
Buy now pricing, sell now pricing and reserve pricing are just some of the many features offered.
Bidding on auctions is very easy. All users have to do is visit your site and sign up for an account. You can host silent auctions, and the theme will add extra seconds to last-minute bids to avoid last time bidding.
You can also use the Auction theme to take a percentage fee out of every auction or item that is sold. This can be done by using the credits system, payments via PayPal, or possibly through other payment methods.
The theme allows you to add as much customization as you want. Sidebar widgets, widgets for auction or latest posted ads, locations, categories, and many more options can be added or removed whenever you see fit.
Auction theme lets you create a unique homepage. Any changes you make are controlled through WordPress hooks. The theme is based on a framework, so any revisions you make won’t affect the customized theme that you created.
2. ShipMe Theme
ShipMe Theme lets you establish a website for transporters or a shipping/carriers marketplace. The idea behind this is having a site where people can post their needs for shipping various items, and transporters can post-delivery proposals and then transport those items. A great solution if you wish to have a delivery/transporters website.
The ShipMe Theme contains many useful features like login and register pages, complete pages for user accounts, monetization tools, payment pages, multiple payment gateways, etc. It provides the tools you need to make your business profitable.
The credit system has an Escrow feature. This feature allows the job poster or owner to deposit virtual funds into the escrow account for the bid winner until the shipment has been transported. Once the job is completed, the funds will be released from Escrow. The bid winner will have the funds in their account. All they need to do to access their money is to request withdrawal of funds with the site administrator.
You can use the ShipMe Theme to take either a flat fee or percentage from each item or job that’s transported through your website. This can be done by using the credits system, using payments in PayPal or using other payment methods that can be added. This is a great way to monetize your site so that you can start seeing profits instantly.
The WordPress Pricer Micro Jobs Theme lets you set up your own micro jobs website. Student/tutor services website, chores website, and task marketplace website can be set up using this theme. Its plug and play functionality, payment options, and many useful features make it ideal for any micro jobs website.
The concept behind this kind of site is that people post jobs and buyers bid on their jobs or services. The buyer then completes the job, and the seller rates the buyer’s performance. Tools such as private messages help users share files and other information back and forth with each other during the job’s progress.
There are also a lot of monetization options for micro job site owners using this theme. Taking a percentage out for every job, charging for listings and featuring job fees are just some of the available choices. Another alternative is using payments via PayPal for more secure online transactions.
This theme will help convert your WordPress site into a genuine classified ad site. AlertPay, Authorize.net, Google Checkout integration, and PayPal are just some of the features that it offers.
Being able to autodelete old posts and setting the length of time that each ad runs are some of the most used features. You can determine the minimum and a maximum number of days that each ad runs live. After the time expires, the ad also expires. It won’t run again, but users can bump the ad by paying the posting fee again.
This theme allows you to use your WordPress blog to create a website for a chore or task bidding, project bidding, or make your own freelancer website. Here, employers will post jobs, and freelancers will then post bids for those jobs.
Employers will use the proposal list to award the job to the person they feel is most qualified in the end. Handy tools such as private messages can be used to help employers and freelancers share files, drafts, and other information back and forth with each other.
The project bidding theme also comes with several monetization tools. Taking a percentage out for every job offered, charging for each listing and featuring project fees are just some of the options to choose from.
TaskerDev can help convert your WordPress site into a fully functioning job or task marketplace. Site users can post tasks that they can do for others to purchase. Users can also post requests for people to bid on. These functions allow you to create your very own site for users to people to buy and sell jobs, services, and tasks.
The theme also includes an admin area full of features that enable you to control everything that goes on in your task marketplace website. You can change the site colors, design, and theme to make it as visually appealing as possible. There are also predetermined payment packages that allow you to define featured listings, free listings, paid listings, and user memberships. You can also integrate your site with BuddyPress.
Buzzler is a WordPress directory theme. You can use it to launch your own directory or review website. Geo-location capabilities and geotagging using Google Maps are just some of the handy features that this theme offers.
The theme’s admin area provides plenty of useful features that put you in control of your directory site. You can change the site colors, visuals, and more. You can change as much of the site’s appearance as you want to help it stand out above the competition.
Buzzler also has several predefined payment packages that let you set user memberships, free listings, featured listings, and paid listings. It can also be combined with BuddyPress to create a review network site similar to Yelp or other comparable sites.
This theme’s impressive backend works well with WordPress admin. It lets you establish bidding packages for your customers to buy.

SiteMile Themes Review Summary
SiteMile themes range in price from $69 to $99 per the theme. They can also be purchased all together as part of the SiteMile club. Joining the SiteMile Membership Club gives you instant access to every theme and extensions for them, which is a more affordable option than buying themes individually.
SiteMile Membership Club comes in two pricing plans. They are Basic Unlimited and Professional Unlimited.
Besides the above mentioned SiteMile Themes, they also offer the JobMiner – WordPress Job Board Theme. Clicking on it to find out more details doesn’t bring anything. Only short description and featured image (it says it will be launching soon).
More themes should be available soon like Agento Real Estate Listing WordPress Theme, Rental Booking Theme for WordPress, Online Tutor Student WordPress Theme, Couponerr WordPress Coupon Management Theme, Domain Buying and Selling WordPress Theme, and Digital Marketplace WordPress Theme.
There is an approximate date for when will each theme be available, but for some of them that date has already passed and they are still not available.
Reading reviews online, there are many negative reviews regarding SiteMile themes, but also there are positive reviews. Which one to trust is up to you. But be noted that people are more inclined to leave a negative review than to write positive in case everything is good.
Still, negative reviews should also be taken into consideration. You know how they say – where there is smoke, there is fire too.
It is good to know that SiteMile Themes offers a seven-day moneyback guarantee. In my opinion this is a very short time to test all themes, and taking into consideration that you also will first open a ticket and try to solve issue using support. This can take several days.
If so sure in their themes, why so short with guarantee period?
- Various selection of themes

- Many theme customization options
