What Is WooCommerce?
WooCommerce is one of the biggest and most successful shopping platforms in the world. It sits neatly on top of WordPress, initially developed as the world’s leading blogging platform. The two work in perfect harmony with a suite of shopping pages integrated into the website it is installed on. The real beauty of WooCommerce is that it is so flexible. Literally any function can be added onto the basic set up, including size and colour control, variable pricing, as well as PayPal, Stripe and other checkout solutions. In fact anything you could possible think of, which may be available on other platforms such as Shopify or Visualsoft, is available in WooCommerce. In 99% of the cases, the solution is also lighter and more flexible. It can also be adapted – you don’t have to accept what you are given. Change a checkout button location or colour? No problem. Tighten up the checkout process? No problem. It’s simply a case of modifying the code. With other shopping platforms you have to accept what you are given, or go to enormous expense getting a developer of the platform itself to make internal changes.
