Divi vs Avada Comparison

by Last Updated: Oct 17, 2023Blog, Divi theme

In this article I will try to briefly compare the Divi theme and the Avada theme. I will mention both pros and cons of these two themes. First let’s mention who the creators of these top premium WordPress themes are (even if you probably already know this). The Divi theme is being sold by ElegantThemes and Avada is sold by Envato, ThemeForest.


Divi vs Avada


Aesthetically, both themes are very nice and they have unlimited possibilities of layouts that can be created with them. Divi uses its Page Builder, which got a big upgrade with the Divi 3.0 release – the visual front-end builder. This was a little disadvantage of the Divi theme, that it had just a back-end page builder. The Avada theme uses Fusion Builder. So both themes have neat drag & drop page builders. And both themes are, of course, responsive.

Now let’s talk about the support. Both themes are premium and come with premium support as well. With Divi you get support for as long as you’re an Elegant Themes customer (and with the Lifetime Access license you get lifetime support, too), while with Avada you get support for 6 months only. For extended Avada support, you’ll need to pay additionally.

If you are a web developer and need a flexible WordPress theme for your clients’ websites, the Divi theme is much more convenient, as you can use it on as many websites as you want with just one license. This is a great advantage of the Divi theme. For $89 (you also get access to ElegantThemes other theme called Extra & other great plugins like Bloom & Monarch) per year, you can use Divi on an unlimited number of projects. Or, on the top of it, for a one-time payment of $249 for the ET Lifetime Access license you can use all ElegantThemes products lifetime.

While Avada costs just $60, you can use it only on one website. If you wanted to use it on more websites, you would need the Extended License which costs $2950. So this is a disadvantage of the Avada theme.

There are many other great WP themes as well. For example, the X Theme (from ThemeForest, too) is another really nice and popular theme. Or the Genesis Framework themes from StudioPress are well-known, too. However, my personal favorite WordPress theme of all times is definitely Divi. Even this website is built with Divi.
