Luckily, today it's easy to make your own online store whenever you want to. Let's start all this with two simple questions - Do you already own a WordPress site? Or do you want to start from scratch - yet expecting that your effort will result in a successful "e-commerce" site?
If your answers to these questions are yes, then we have a solution for you - get to know the WooCommerce extension!
Let's start from the beginning... First and foremost, WordPress (WP). Did you know that a third of the world's major sites use the WP CMS version?
But that's not all. When we look at the statistics for WooCommerce and e-commerce, we will quickly and easily come to the result that an amazing 2 million websites already have this plugin installed.
What makes it so special, you will find out below...
WooCommerce is a free open source extension. It was made exactly 10 years ago (in 2011). The best thing about this plugin is that you can create an online store directly from WP.
Do you sell products online? Want to manage your e-store? WooCommerce not only provides such solutions, but is a generally accepted extension around the world because it also approves the use of various credit cards, as well as PayPal (we are sure you're happy to hear this...).
WooCommerce is also able to collect different types of statistical series about the online store you run, as well as manage inventory.
This popular open source plugin is useful in SEO optimization too because it offers a multitude of SEO modules. In addition, it is flexible and has a wide range of customizations for different types of websites.
With WooCommerce, you can sell physical products, create different subscriptions, but also offer digital products.
Companies and developers always like to have access to the complete data catalog, and with WooCommerce, this is possible too, thanks to the API store.
