WooCommerce review - why we use WooCommerce for our ecommerce clients

We’ve already talked in detail about why we prefer to work with WooCommerce. In this blog post we’ll look at the advantages of WooCommerce for our clients, after all, they’re the ones that will be using WooCommerce on a daily basis.

WooCommerce review

1) It’s easy to use

WooCommerce is as easy to use as WordPress. WordPress is one of the most intuitive content management systems, and WooCommerce uses the same interface, making managing your products and stock easy and stress free.

Adding new products is just as simple as adding a new blog post, something all our clients have been able to get the hang of after a little training!

2) You can sell anything

The great thing about WooCommerce is that you aren’t limited to physical products. You can sell whatever you like, including digital products, online courses, memberships, subscriptions and even appointments.

Several of our clients have complex products, and WooCommerce can cope with them too. For example, we customised WooCommerce for Bobbie Burns, so that buyers can build and purchase custom sofas online.

3) Your shop will look great

WooCommerce is designed to work with WordPress themes so it’s easy to maintain a consistent look and feel throughout your shop and the rest of your website. 

4) It’s secure

Security is obviously a key concern when it comes to ecommerce. WooCommerce is highly secure, used by 9% of ecommerce sites in the world. To ensure it maintains high standards, WooCommerce is audited by security specialist Sucuri.

5) It’s free

Finally, it’s worth mentioning that the core functionality of WooCommerce is free and there are no transaction fees. This can save you a significant amount of money compared to investing in other systems.
