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.

Why should I use it?

WooCommerce has been available since around 2011. As such, it has grown a significant development team. Because it is open source, it is free to use and modify. Making it very popular. For beginners, the platform is incredibly easy to use. WordPress users can get set up quickly with WooCommerce. And begin running their online store in no time. You do not need any coding experience either.

Easy to setup and install

Getting started with WooCommerce in WordPress is fairly easy. And available as a free download directly from WordPress. WooCommerce has an inbuilt setup wizard. Making it particularly easy to setup. And certain tasks such as payment and shipping are very easy.

WooCommerce is highly customisable

It is often the case that easy to use plugins can have limited functionality. For WooCommerce, this is not the case. WooCommerce is highly customisable. For example, through the editing of themes, plugins and extensions. And if you have coding experience, this makes possible even more customisation.

WooCommerce quick start tips

As mentioned, WooCommerce is incredibly easy to get up and running with. However, it does not run alone. Which is why you will need the following before getting started:

What People Say

Before we began working with Chetaru, we were struggling to gain followers on Linkedin and Twitter. Once Chetaru got involved, followers increased on both accounts, particularly for Twitter which gained 372 followers from previously no followers whatsoever. Impressions and mentions on both accounts have also risen significantly thanks to working with the Social Media team at Chetaru.

We have been working alongside the social media team at Chetaru to manage our social media accounts. Specifically, to raise awareness of our charity and what we do, with specific regards to upcoming events. Previously the account hadn’t been updated very often. However once Chetaru took over, impressions increased from 200-300 to 6000-7000 per month and followers increased from 200 to 341


Chetaru found us when we had lost a lot of momentum and keenness to be online. We ranked fairly well for some keywords but our site was pretty awful. Chetaru managed to convert our site to something that is visually appealing, works on mobiles and ultimately does the job. The team worked well to pick up the slight loss in web ranking and now we outrank and outperform a lot of organisations with a lot more resources than we have. Chetaru really have been a powerful addition to what we do.

Tarun does amazing work! Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable, he is extremely responsive and genuinely cares about client satisfaction.

Chetena and her company, Chetaru, has a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to digital strategy, digital development, SEO, SEM and Google Analytics.

Chetaru understood my clash flow situation and provided me with flexibility in payment. Their social media and copywriting team managed my social accounts and blogs, affording me more time to work on other aspects of my business.
