Shopify theme and a WordPress theme

What is the difference between a Shopify theme and a WordPress theme?

One works with Shopify (subscription based e-commerce platform).

The other is a WordPress theme which is typically a blogging CMS bit which can also work for e-commerce websites assuming they have a plugin like WooCommerce or similar included. For these sites you need your own domain and hosting but the commerce element is not a subscription

I understand that, but my question is about WordPress themes that have a Software Version of Shopify
like this https://themeforest.net/item/ap-otis-shopify-theme/19501460

Some themes will have been developed to have versions for each platform (potentially by different authors) but these are separate items so it will not be available for each.

Hi,
The main difference between Shopify and WordPress is that Shopify is an online tool/service, whereas WordPress is stand-alone software that you need to install yourself. First, you need to buy a domain and a web hosting account where you can have the default version of WordPress installed.

Thanks

i do not ask about Shopify , i ask about WordPress Themes that have Software Version of Shopify
like this https://themeforest.net/item/ap-otis-shopify-theme/19501460

That link is just a Shopify theme - there is nothing WordPress about it.

You can’t have a file that combines the two.

As above there will be items that have both Shopify and WordPress versions, but they will be completely separate items

A WordPress theme does not contain any software version of Shopify. The link you’ve provided is a Shopify theme; NOT WordPress.

Thanks
