One of the advantages that Starter has over 99% of WordPress themes is that it supports WooCommerce by working AROUND the shopping platform’s “cart” functionality, rather than including tons of Woo-specific files within the theme itself.
In other words, rather than dropping WooCommerce into your website and having to code dozens of different template files to allow your website to function properly (which requires constant changes and maintenance), and rather than having to purchase a “premium” WordPress theme (which requires constant security patches and updates), Starter simply “accommodates” WooCommerce, relying on a few basic HTML functions that rarely — if ever — change; thus, shopping and checkout functions “just work” even over several months and years of WooCommerce software releases.
Likewise, instead of relying on WooCommerce to generate all of your product pages and categories, Starter simply allows WordPress take care of all page structure and URL creation, which ultimately makes your website much easier and “cleaner” to manage and offers much better usability and SEO as well.
This is how pages usually look with WooCommerce:
https://www.example.com/product/some-nail-polish https://www.example.com/product-category/super-pink-nail-polishes https://www.example.com/product-tag/really-ugly-stuff
…and how they look with Starter:
