WooCommerce and WordPress - a winner's combo

Score 10 out of 10

Return on Investment

  • Positive: I'm very satisfied as it only required some basic knowledge.
  • It needs to be manually updated or you do need someone to work for you as an admin.
  • As it's seamlessly integrated with WordPress you can take advantage of all the platform's plugins right from the start.
  • Very scalable so it saves you money.
  • Constantly being upgraded which gives you a sense of robustness that translates into more revenue.
  • There are free and paid plugins and also freemium ones, but prices are more than reasonable so it's a favorable ROI.

The Cost Effective eCommerce Plugin for the Tech Savvy Startup

Return on Investment

  • For those looking for a very basic online store management system the free plugin is more than adequate and saves on costs.
  • The learning curves are massive and the time spent on setting up for non-developers is not a good use of time.

Return on Investment

  • There have been a couple of times that I have lost a lot of time trying to troubleshoot a problem I have had configuring something.
  • It has been great to be able to get a store up with very little money invested up front.
  • I use WooCommerce for another business of mine integrated with Printful, a print on demand service and they work together seamlessly. I have been able to get a t-shirt store online very quickly, cheaply, and easily.
  • It has been easy for the other employees that need to manage the products to learn and use.

WooCommerce an easy, free way to start selling online

Return on Investment

  • As a free product, the initial investment is great. We are using a paid add-on to add functionality. The ROI is fine, it's a low-cost way to add products to a website.
  • It has created a more robust shopping experience for our company, the searching, tagging, and categories make it easier for clients to see what we are offering.

Simply the best e-commerce CMS that I have used.

Return on Investment

  • This CMS is highly recommended because it is open source and totally free. It is constantly improved and does not involve any initial investment expense.
  • Most hosting providers have complete compatibility and there are almost no problems when it comes to installation and they do not charge a percentage for it either.

Most affordable way to open your own online shop - little experience required

Return on Investment

  • We were able to get online without spending thousands on a web designer or ecommerce developer. Most themes are free if you know where to look and WooCommerce did not cost us anything to implement.
  • We did invest in a great theme designed specifically to function with WooCommerce. This is a must if you want to stand out from the rest of the users using this plugin. There are many professional themes and we think they are a great ROI considering the ability to customize further than the default themes.

WooCommerce can work for most shops and offers more features without the price tag

Score 7 out of 10

Return on Investment

  • I currently have not had a lot of ROI from using WooCommerce
  • While it is easy to set up, it doesn't handle things like marketing, emails, or promotion to build up sales
  • It can easily integrate with most email marketing, making follow-up emails easy to set up.

Best E-Commerce Platform for SMEs

Return on Investment

  • The basic platform of WooCommerce is free and WooCommerce gives new updates without any premium subscriptions. That is a positive reason to use WooCommerce.
  • In order to have a stable store, WooCommerce needs to have secured hosting, which is costly.
  • WooCommerce Analytics is very descriptive for understanding business growth.

Create a virtual store in less time than in other ecommerce CMS

Return on Investment

  • WooCommerce is the best option to start in the world of eCommerce. It is free and does not represent any initial negative impact.
  • The initial investment would be the purchase of a good professional-looking theme to the site, which would not really be an excessive expense either since the WordPress themes are very economical.
  • The gains that could be obtained with WooCommerce can be very large if you work in good marketing, SEO, and promotions in social networks.
