WooCommerce Websites

What is WooCommerce?

WooCommerce is a plug-in for WordPress. It allows you to sell products and services online. Furthermore, it allows you to do most tasks expected from an e-commerce platform. e.g. selling products, managing shipping and inventory, taking payments and applying tax. Data is very easy to control. And the platform supports mobile devices. Moreover, it is free and can be highly customised. This is because lots of extensions are available for it. WooCommerce has the advantage of being produced by WordPress. So you can rest assured that you are in good hands.

For WordPress, WooCommerce is the most popular and well designed plugin. In fact, it counts for 42% of all web online stores. But why is WooCommerce the best WordPress plugin? We attempt to explain this below.
