February 7, 2018

If you’re considering launching your own online store, or are in the process of looking for a new platform to run your existing digital shop on, then WooCommerce could be the solution you’re looking for. WooCommerce is an open-source extension for WordPress, and offers users an almost limitless scope when it comes to customization. Whether you’re selling a single product, or stock a huge inventory, you’ll be able to use the program to meet your demands.

The plug-in is created to be integrated with WordPress, one of the most powerful and popular online platforms. WordPress is used by some of the most well-known international brands, including The New Yorker, BBC America and MTV News, to name just a few. WordPress is a great choice if you’re looking for an online platform which offers full customization, affordability and reliability. Depending on the type of site you run, WordPress might also be the most affordable web solution you can choose. Most professional web developers will be familiar with the platform, and will help you achieve the fantastic website your business deserves.

Once you have your WordPress site created, adding the WooCommerce solution is relatively straightforward. Many of its features are free to use, and it can be integrated with almost any WordPress theme or layout. As many as one third of all online stores now use the plug-in, and when you see it in action, it’s simple to see why. If you opt to have a web developer launch your online store, WooCommerce offers the advantage of making it is easy to access for both yourself and your web developer. Your dashboard, including details of all your transactions, is beautifully laid out and is easy to navigate.

With over three million downloads, WooCommerce is now more popular than ever. There are numerous options when it comes to choosing a digital platform to sell your products or services on, and WooCommerce ranks as highly as any of them. You can modify and edit almost any aspect of your online store, in just a few clicks. Whether you’re running a flash sale and need to make an instant price modification, or whether you need to make an edit to your current shipping costs, the platform allows you to achieve that with accessibility and flexibility in mind.

One of the most common headaches for small business owners is finding a platform which allows you to accept a variety of payment methods, from credit card purchases through to PayPal and Stripe. In fact, WooCommerce now allows payment from over 140 region-specific gateways, meaning that you’ll never miss out on a customer because they didn’t have the correct payment method.

Once you have your store launched, there are then a huge amount of options for running your store long-term. From studying the data which Google Analytics collects through to installing plug-in extensions which can automate every aspect of your delivery, including printing your delivery notes to tracking your taxes, there really is no limit to what you can achieve with this incredible platform.
