WooCommerce is an open source eCommerce plugin from WordPress. It was created for small to medium eCommerce merchants. The platform is extremely straight forward to use and easy to implement. It is fast becoming the eCommerce platform of choice for clients who want to dip their toe in the world of eCommerce without the overheads.
We work with our clients initially on getting the right hosting to support the platform, making sure it’s secure and updates the version of WordPress automatically. We then decide on if our client require a completely new build or if we can find a theme that suites our clients needs that we can adapt. Load times on our clients sites are extremely important to us and we make sure that all the content is optimised to aid this.
WooCommerce’s growth over the last few years its ties to WordPress. We expect to see every theme that is created to have a WooCommerce shop available for it’s customers to take advantage. Areas like hooking up payment gateways and implementing SSL certs haven’t been as easy compared to rival eCommerce platforms but we think this should all be addressed in the coming years, with users being able to do this in a few clicks.
