eCommerce platform for WordPress

About WooCommerce

Designed for small to large-scale online vendors, WooCommerce is an open-source eCommerce plugin for WordPress. The WooCommerce platform allows any WordPress user to set up a basic online store, completely free (additional plug-ins and customization modules are chargeable).

Users can sell anything from tangible items to music files to time and services. They can develop their own plugins to add new functionality to their online store or buy a pre-made plugin from the WooCommerce store.

Shipping cost and sales tax calculation for anywhere in the world is done automatically with WooCommerce. The WooCommerce store management interface allows users to manage their store on the go. Inventory updates and product management don't require any experience or knowledge of coding.


Key benefits of WooCommerce

  • Because WooCommerce is a self-hosted solution, you keep control of your own data and hold full ownership of all the information needed to run your online store.

  • WooCommerce has over 400 free and paid extensions for you to add to your store and increase its functionality.

  • Build your own databases for marketing campaigns and run 'coupon code' promotions through WooCommerce's integrations with a variety of extensions.

  • WooCommerce is built to integrate seamlessly with WordPress meaning users have access to the ever-growing WordPress ecosystem.

  • View incoming sales, reviews, stock levels and store performance from the backend, with WooCommerce reporting.

  • Integrate your store with MailChimp, Freshbooks, Xero, Amazon Web Services and more.

    Back in the day, I was always attracted by that GURUS online promoting other platforms (Never knew that they were affiliates). I used other platforms for 1 month and it was really expansive, all the plugins are extremely expansive or they charge a commission/ Sale. Then I discover WOOCOMMERCE easier, more control over the hosting and servers unlike Shopify (They can shut you down anytime they want without giving an ounce of explanations), and more artistic designing the websites
    From my point of view, WooCommerce can be described as Legit, Genuine, Beautiful, Educational never had any trouble ever since I started building websites it was always a +++ Income
    IT'S 5 STARS

    Pros

    WooCommerce it's beyond simple, I've personally been using this software for years (I even lost count) it has unlimited features:
    -Connected to WordPress
    -No more struggling for creating an eCommerce website, Online Courses, B2B platform, or more.
    -It's simple just a drag & drop system no need for expertise or development skills.
    -Best Worldwide Ecom platform and money saver, unlike others.
    -Have more control over the servers and hosting
    -The WooCommerce Community is everywhere around social media platforms and never struggle to complete a task.
    - It's FREE TO USE and NO COMMISSION
    -Multiple Plugins FREE

    Cons

    With Lack Of CMS, it might be a little hard to use, but after designing a couple of websites, then everything comes to a conclusion.

    You can build your e-commerce with it. But you have to be extra technical to build it.

    Needs improvements, definitely.

    Pros

    First off, WooCommerce is the first choice when it comes to fast e-commerce website. It is CMS-based, offers large library of extension for all and varied e-commerce demands, offers considerable customizability. Knows what the e-commerce industry needs.

    The thing that I like most about WooCommerce is it's large libraries of extensions. It's less likely that you'll ran out of options when it comes to customizing the function of your store.

    Cons

    Branding. When you want to customize your store to strictly follow your branding guidelines, this is where WooCommerce falters. There is not much you can do with the checkout page, cart page, thank you page, my account page and all.

    Extensions tend to be expensive. Even those that have simple functions.

    Common sense functionalities are not added. It's either you have to install a third-party plugin or buy there own extension, or code it for yourself.

    It’s been ok and got us to where we need to be. We are thinking of switching away in the future mainly due to inventory management not being great, and very time consuming.

    Pros

    It’s easy to set up, simple to customise layout and overall look of the website. Very inexpensive compared to the majority of competition.

    Cons

    Slow and sluggish at times. A long and drawn out process to add new products with multiple sizes. No matter how high our security is, we have still been hacked twice.

    Pros

    Nothing is better than this platform that allows us to integrate our inventory of each product and service, I also like being able to process payments directly online.

    Cons

    Nothing to add from this robust and trusted inventory and payment processing platform.

    I used WooCommerce to set up my second e-commerce store. (https://www.fawnandmoose.com) The first one was done using Shopify which took a similar amount of time but was very frustrating. Woo worked great. A few days later, our website became a fully functioning store! We've since added a store to Instagram and Facebook connected to our site.

    Pros

    The tutorials and support make setting up your e-commerce store relatively easy. But don't just SKIP over the details. Take time. Read carefully and follow the steps exactly.

    Cons

    It can be complicated due to all that it does. You need to read instructions carefully and follow the steps exactly to avoid getting lost.

    Reasons for Switching to WooCommerce

    I had tried a dropship store with Shopify previosuly and found the interface a hassle. Shopify also employs its own unique code which is different than HTML/CSS. I chose WooCommerce because its made by bthe same company that makes WordPress and so I thought it'd be a more seamless experience and less likely to have incompatabilities.
