SiteMile Themes Review (2021) PROS & CONS – Worthy Purchase?

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.

 

multipurpose wordpress themes sitemile

 

Here are themes that are offered and which you can buy separately or in a bundle as part of club membership:

 

1. Responsive WordPress Auction Theme

Auction 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.

 

ShipMe Shipping Carriers Marketplace review

 

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.

 

3. WordPress Pricerr Theme

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.

 

4. WordPress Classified Ads Theme

Classified Ads 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.

 

Classified Ads Theme sitemile review

 

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.

 

5. WordPress Project Bidding Theme

Project Bidding 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. For more info you can check my SiteMile Project Theme review.

 

6. TaskerDev Task Marketplace Theme

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.

 

7. Buzzler Business Directory Theme

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.

 

8. WordPress Penny Auction Theme

You can also choose the starting price for each auction, and set the individual increase auction bid and time whenever one of your site users places a bid on a particular auction.

All users have to do is sign up for an account on site. The theme supports tools like the amount of time for bid time increase, starting prices for each auction and other options.

 

9. Walleto WordPress Marketplace Theme

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.

 

sitemile themes pricing plans
After one year, you can pay an optional $19 fee to get access to updates for another 12 months, and so on.

 

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 (2019) and they are still not available (they have now added new release dates after I pointed that out to them).

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.

SiteMile Themes offers only a 3 day moneyback guarantee as stated in their terms. But it also says “However we might from time to time give you a 3 day money back guarantee” which sounds concerning. Like they are saying maybe we will provide money-back.

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.

However they say that there are people reaching out after a year that want their money back for various reasons, and in some cases, they give them back their money even after a month. But I can’t confirm this.

    Good quality, they helped us a lot on setting up the theme we got from them. The nicest thing is that they have live chat on the site

  2. Digital George

    Excelent work building our website. We didnt use any of their themes, but they build a custom website for us using laravel and the work is great. I still recommend the themes after seeing the capacity of the work they can do

  3. Jeremy Funnels

    Hey guys, throwing my two cents here. The pricerr theme is just great. I was able to build a doctor/medical services website in no time. And the support was just great! they are doing a really good job here!

    1. Hi Alexandra,

      Thank you for the time to address the reviews SiteMile users have left. Hopefully, you can see where you can improve and in what you excell.

      1. This company is a scam. I raised tickets and they have no skills to handle most of them. Only able to solve minor issues. I reviewed their program sources and the quality is poor. Really, it is poor to the level I never seen in my whole career. I will do a Project Theme Review Part 2 later.

    2. I’m sorry but defending your boss does not erase the fact that he promised us a refund after a year of hardly any communication and endless excuses of why the work was not done. Not only did we wait almost a year for this after being told it would only take two weeks. The custom work never materialized and the theme had parts that didn’t work. Then toward the end of this period of time, he gave another deadline and said that if he didn’t meet it he would give us a refund. Guess what? No refund received or any communication as before. People get tired of the excuses. Send our refund!!!!

    Unfortunately this company is a scam.
    Their software doesn’t work as advertised and their support is non existent.
    Andrei lies and finds any excuse not to assist you.
    He is now no longer responding to my emails.

    When I purchased the Project Theme in July 2019 the theme didn’t work out of the box!
    I had at give them access to the site to fix it, I should have realised then and returned it immediately.

    I’m obviously a sucker for punishment because I’m still struggling with it nearly 2 years later.

    I have never gone live as the promised functionality just isn’t there!

    One of the most important features of a theme of this nature is that the job posters and the freelancers should only be able to communicate through the theme until a deal is struck and monies paid, otherwise why not deal directly!. So URL’s and email addresses need to be filtered out – this is there but has never worked…

    At one stage they changed the theme so that the original template was changed and the whole site was messed up, and it’s never been the same since.
    The idea of posting a job that you want done is that you can give, for example, two weeks for freelancers to quote then it ends and you choose one.
    This worked fine until Andrei obviously decided that it wasn’t necessary and removed the functionality so it defaulted to 30 days! What if you need a job completed by next week?
    He then argued with me saying that it had never worked like that – until I proved that it had. He then said he’d change mine to work that way, but only mine – really?
    That is where it ended, he has done nothing, said my ftp access didn’t work, I tested it it works. Now he ignores my emails. I’ve always said that the only way to get anything done by Sitemile is to post bad reviews. Then they are quick to burst into tears and promise the earth to have the bad review removed.

    Now you’ll notice that after every bad review, and I mean bad, that they are liars, cheaters, scammers etc etc. There is a spate of really great glowing reviews, obviously fake to move the bad ones further down the page – now they don’t need to fix anything…

    I don’t believe he wrote the software in the first place, unless he just acts dumb to try and deflect you. When you write a program you know EXACTLY what it can do and not do.

    If you are using a child theme (which you have to)then every update requires hours of work because the functions.php file wasn’t coded correctly in the first place to work with a child theme!

    1. Hi Paul,

      Thank you for sharing your experience. It is unfortunate to see that you experience issues from 2019. and still isn’t solved.

  6. ** Project Theme Review – Part 1 **
    I agreed that worst website service that I have dealt with all my life. I just wonder if the people in here who has good comment, can you share the website you they launched to us to prove it is so good. For me, I plan to use Project Bidding Theme in Nov 2020. I found it has a lot of bugs, incomplete coding and vulnerabilities. I raised tickets in Nov 2020 and use live chat to follow up the tickets for many times. They always reply “I am working on it and will give you an update today” or “will give you and update even in a few hours”. Get promised all the time that they will get back to us with an update then don’t hear anything. Recently, they are so proud to claim they replied my ticket promptly but in fact, they really replied on new tickets very fast but on asking question and then keep silent and not solved the problem.

    1. We acknowledge this is a real customer, indeed. But during the time he had the theme , he requested countless small issues (things he didnt even use) but we fixed as we always release 2-3 updates a month at least. This isnt the full story, all the issues were fixed by the regular updates which we do every week and month.

      1. Don’t trust this company. I don’t agree their reply:

        1. ” fixed as we always release 2-3 updates a month at least.” – The fact is for WordPress Project Bidding Theme:
        4.3.1.9 – 2021/02/24
        4.3.1.5 – 2021/01/08
        (only have 2 versions in 2021).

        2. “countless small issues” – The fact is: The ticket I raised including: Vulnerabilities, Wrong Calculation, Missing Functions or functions not work, Leakage of private information, Inconsistent terms show in screen, wrong spelling or wrong label. request to have plugin version instead of theme.

        1. Andres Robbens

          We have purchased the theme this month and so far we havent seen any major issue, we are setting up with them, and going into production next month. So far so good, and the support is good via livechat

          1. I think you don’t have your own IT resource and outsource to them. If you are IT person, you will know how to test and how to see the quality. For example, it has private message but the attachment in private message can be accessed by the public. I talked to Sitemile and they don’t aware there are several ways to access an attachment and just believe if you don’t tell the attachement url to others, no one knows. Sitemile does not aware the worse case is google robot able to get it …

  7. Thanks for the share of this article, i was able to find them because of this, and they were great. I had done my site in less than a month

  8. Marvin Hoffenheim

    I would like to thank you the sitemile team as they offered great support even in weekends. The downtime we had on the server was very bad and they solved although it wasnt software related. Our hosting company screwed things up but these guys did the best to help us!

  9. Thanks for the share! We just purchased a few days ago and we find it very pleasing. A good experience and good support. So far so good, and we got a great black friday deal on the theme 35% discount.

  10. First of all i would like to thank you…
    First of all i would like to thank you for your professional attitude and absolutely amazing support at any time we have written (its true that we were on the same timezone, in europe) but the support was absolutely outstanding.

    Second i would like to point out i have tried many freelancer themes out there from all the other companies and the results were at most satisfactory, but the biggest issue (aside from bugs with some others) was the support, where in the sitemile case, their support is top notch. I would really like to recommend them.

    We also got the app package , and they are almost launched the app for us in the app store and google play and we are very happy with all they did for us

    Amazing and top notch

    LE: and the pricing is not that bad, i had offers on the apps 3-4 times more expensive that that.

  11. Logan George Localmoves

    The support is very decent. The live chat is only open for 12 hrs a day or so but thats good still as they answer by emails within a few hrs if not online in chat. Overal very decent themes and pretty good support. They do a great job!

  12. Thanks for the support, they helped me solve my issue within 15 mins. I had a big headache importing the demo data due to my hosting provider which doesn’t allow big data file uploads. But these guys helped me via live chat in 15 mins. Amazing!

  13. Thanks sitemile for all the customization work, and the freelancer marketplace theme is perfect! My customer is so happy!

  14. Bull Sh!t! These reviews are fake. This is a scam! DO NOT BUY! I am a web designer. I purchased the Freelancer Pro theme on August 18th for $279. I then contacted Andrei about custom work, which I have paid $583. The theme does not work. You can’t find where to customize anything on your own. Today is Nov 11 and the work still has not been done. Every time I ask about it, I get the same reply “I am working on it and will give you an update today”. I have a long string of saved emails where he said this. I wrote a review here on Oct 26 and requested a refund through PayPal. As soon as he saw it, he contacted me and asked if I would reverse the refund request and take down my review and he would get the work done immediately. It still has not been don. DO NOT SEND HIM MONEY UNLESS YOU DON’T MIND THROWING IT AWAY!

    1. Hi David,

      Thank you for sharing your side of the story and update about situation with your order. I must admit all positive comment reviews I received regarding SiteMile on this article suddendly start popin in span of 2 days after few negative reviews were published. It was strange to me, but as they might really be real reviews I decided to publish them.

      1. Andrei contacted me yesterday and has resolved the issues I had with the theme. I have been able to go in customize it and he is going the extra mile to add a few special features that I would like the theme to do that require coding on his end. I appreciate his effort over the last 24 hours to make this right.

  15. I can confirm i had a great experience with the sitemile team. They helped me with a lot of customization (which i paid of course as it was extra work) and my customer was super happy. I got a second project from my customer because of that, and it will start in Jan 2021, and im thinking to give it to these guys as well. Thank you for the excellent care!

  16. Charlie Thompson

    I am here because none of these reviews make justice to our friends and developers at sitemile. We have had a great experience with them working long term for a few months now. I even think if they have 10000 customers, and 3 of them are maybe not happy for whatever reason, those 3 ruin the experience for all … Therefore i post my good review here about their services, and i did on other sites as well. They really have good services, and they have always done the extra mile to make us happy!

      1. I agree with Jeff. The themes have a lot of flaws. If you browse around enough you will see a lot of things doesn’t even work at all. Complete waste of my time

    1. Yes please elaborate more on this. Are you even a real customer ? We do want to make our services better, and we would like to know what was the problem. We would appreciate a more elaborated answer. As you can see on trustpilot, we have great reviews overall (there you can verify if the reviewer is a real customer, unlike here)

    2. I still dont see a reply here , we had such a good experience and i find this hard to believe. Please provide an update

  17. The company is a fraud. The WordPress themes don’t work. You would pay for the themes, and receive a theme that is 50% working.

    The owner, lies about changes and updates and dates.

    Don’t waste your time and money.

  18. Believe me, this is the worst website service that I have dealt with all my life. If you do not want your money contact them!!!. After they receive your money, they will not support you and your website at all. I have created many support tickets, unfortunately, they ignore it.

  19. Paid for a pluigin to be written for one of their themes over 6 months ago and still waiting. Get promised all the time that they will get back to us with an update then dont hear anything. Worst service ever.

      1. We got ours quite good. Maybe was just something that happened for some particular reason, but we have our customer very happy !

    1. Thanks. It is true that on other sites even theme forest you don’t get your money back not even after 1 second.
