What is WooCommerce?
WooCommerce is not a site builder like Magento but an open-source plugin added to a WordPress website, which turns it into a fully functioning e-commerce store. In other words, instead of signing up to a checkout platform or building an e-comm site from scratch, WooCommerce is a good choice for those wanting to add an e-commerce function to their WordPress-based website.
The WooCommerce plugin is completely free to download and use, however merchants should be mindful that in order to improve their e-commerce experience as their webshop grows, extra plugins and add-ons could be necessary and these might have some extra costs.
Why integrate with WooCommerce?
With WooCommerce anyone can set up and run an online store from their WordPress site. It does not require any coding skills or even previous knowledge in WordPress (although this would speed up the process, of course). So for those looking for getting their shop up and running quickly, WooCommerce is a good choice.
By already being in WordPress, merchants have the advantages that comes with the platform, such as the blog feature (to build content marketing to attract the target audience) and SEO (to analyse and improve traffic to the website).
Affordable and flexible
Compared to other solutions, WooCommerce can be more cost effective. Both because it is an open source platform, but also because it can be set up in a matter of days as opposed to custom webshops, which can take months. With the advantage of countless WordPress themes, WooCommerce offers a lot of design flexibility to online shop owners who can be in control of the whole process.
