Welcome back to my blog, this week I am discussing the benefits of using WooCommerce for your E-commerce website. If you have been thinking about opening an online shop to bring your product or service to a wider market, you have probably heard of WordPress and it’s various adaptations, particularly in the form of the WooCommerce plugin and its host of features to help get your products online and SOLD!
The good news is, if you are already using WordPress, adding WooCommerce is an easy way to enhance your website and turn it into an online selling platform. Unlike other E-commerce websites, which are usually a stand-alone selling solution or online shop, WooCommerce can be added later and adapted to suit.
Modern, Adaptable and Made for Sales
This type of website remains one of the most popular options due to its modern and adaptable approach to building an effective E-commerce website. Whatever your style and product, the chances are you will find a theme you love and will be able to modify your WordPress website to suit your requirements and make your business stand out. Designed for selling, the WooCommerce add on has everything you need to easily bring your product to a global market.
Highly Customisable and Scalable
One of the main features and benefits of using WordPress and adding WooCommerce is getting access to the many thousands of WordPress plug-ins and extensions to customise your online shop to your specific needs. The open source nature of Woocommerce’s parent platform, WordPress means that thousands of developers are continuously building new features and are on hand to give advice. Using this type of plugin also gives you room for growth – as business and demand for your product grows, so can your online shop.
Easy Integration of Products, Simple Checkout and Shipping
The beneficial aspect of WooCommerce is that it already contains everything you need to get your store up and running, all you need to do is decide how you would like it to look and respond to your customers and then just add your products! Once you are familiar with the interface, this should be a straightforward step. The plugin already contains all the combinations you could possibly need to get started with over 100 payment gateways, various checkout options and shipping methods already integrated and ready for connection to your accounts.
