We tried to learn all the documentation as we were very limited in what we can do with woocommerce. After studying documentation, we understood that system will not be able to function sustainably. Not even one transaction went through woocemmerce, so we kindly asked for refund, but we were punished for working hard to work with woocommerce and make it work, by refusal to refund us after 30 days, which is not enough for beginners.

We use WooCommerce for our online store to sell books and other materials that we use for our ministry. It is only being used in one department. We use it on the same website that our main website is on. Because it is built to work on WordPress it is easy to maintain and update. I maintain the website and because it is the same platform I can easily maintain the online store as well. It allows us to have an inexpensive online store solution.

I have implemented WooCommerce to manage multiple stores on our own WordPress multisite network of more than 1500 member blogs. Through our featured store sites, we sell both physical goods and digital products. I have also installed and helped maintain WooCommerce stores for various other website clients selling a variety of products. WooCommerce is now my preferred e-commerce plugin for any WordPress sites I develop. Using WooCommerce and its various add-ons, I am able to quickly build out an online store and easily manage product inventory and sales.

Our company utilizes WooCommerce to sell customized products via a WordPress eCommerce website. We needed a way for customers to locate our business online, view our product offerings, and eventually place orders. WooCommerce was an easy option since it integrates directly with our website and is free to start. There are many paid plugins that we take advantage of but everything is based on the WooCommerce platform.

WooCommerce also makes it easy to track our online sales and manage our inventory.

WooCommerce has been a game changer in my company. The reason I use WooCommerce is because it's so flexible when it comes to payment gateways and add-ons you can implement. I currently use it for myself and clients that hire us to build their online web store.

I use WooCommerce to sell photography products and services to clients. Often I am booking photography sessions in advance of the date of the shoot, and I have specific time slots available for booking. WooCommerce allows me to make these time slots available to clients and they can book them and pay for them in advance online, from their computer or phone. Because I can combine both the payment and the scheduling, I don't have to worry about double-booking.

I work with clients to develop e-commerce websites, and I always recommend designing the site on WordPress and implementing WooCommerce as the e-commerce solution. Each client's use case is different, which is why I love WooCommerce; the flexibility to customize it as needed for each client is really easy. Plus, because the base software is free, my clients only need to pay additional if they need specific customization or options not available in that base package.

WooCommerce is being used by the majority of departments in our company as a complimentary e-commerce add-on to our WordPress-based products. It is the simplest and most efficient way to enhance your website in order to become a full-fledged shopping platform. Finally, what seems the most important to our customers, secure payments gateway is included in the solution.

We use WooCommerce on my client's website. They sell products that are available for local delivery only. They do not have a storefront; their website is the only way for customers to find them and order from them. Therefore it solves the most basic problem: it allows them to have a business. They previously used a third-party site to list their products but that site closed, so now they have complete control over their online presence.

WooCommerce is currently being used to support our organization's online shop. As a host to not only our own line of products but the foundation for a variety of storefronts and individual sellers, it is mainly overseen and managed by our Marketing/Digital Events departments as it addresses the problems of providing more engaging ways to potentially market, browse, and purchase goods.

The reason for preferring WooCommerce is its stability and affordability. I didn't have a good experience with WordPress, but if I talk about WooCommerce, it has brought a great revolution. Because it is quite light so it is really easy to run on cheaper hosting even. However, Magento comparatively I found to be heavier enough [that it] required sufficient hosting. I really like its outstanding ability to integrate with a lot of other software as well as plugins. It introduces a wide range of features that prove really helpful to web developers and business owners. For serious budget constraints companies, it will be the most suitable option because it is free.

WooCommerce was utilized to build popup shops online for various opportunities where a pre-existing online presence was in place using WordPress sites. The platform provides an extremely short setup process to get your store online and start selling. These were short-term sales that focused on moment-based marketing, so the longevity of the storefront was not important. WooCommerce is a great and viable option for creating branded small storefronts as well as big retail storefronts.

My company uses WooCommerce on our website shop for the shipping and e-commerce department. It is also used for holiday orders, which customers can place orders via our website for special holiday menus. We are a multi-unit operation and the ability to have customers order online for special menus was very important.

WooCommerce is used to allow our readers to subscribe to our magazine (options including print or digital) and also to allow them a good deal of self service to edit their personal details, shipping addresses, billing address, and also to purchase gift subscriptions for loved ones. Through other Wordpress functions we’ve integrated Woocommerce into our entitlement system too, to unlock subscriber only content and even grant access to a subscriber only iPad app.

We use WooCommerce to create eCommerce stores for all kind of businesses, from local to worldwide. We have created stores for Europe, America and South America clients. Also we use it to boost our local business in SEO and sales. We have created stores with easy registration process with one clic login/registration. Also we protect our stores with Cloudfilt services to avoid bad bots entering to the stores.

I have used WooCommerce on a lot of my clients site. And one of the site is India's top Kids food online portal - MyLittleMoppet Foods. WooCommerce made it possible for naive clients to have their shop online easily with out of the box solutions related to shipping and pricing.

I've used WooCommerce in the capacity of enabling relatively small nonprofit organizations be able to sell physical products, eLearning modules and print/digital subscriptions. Prior to using WooCommerce, they were having to sell their products and subscriptions through paper. WooCommerce, with its pros and cons, was transformational. It is also clearly the go-to eCommerce solution for Wordpress based websites.

I help clients with their WordPress sites that use WooCommerce. WooCommerce is not business software that I would use internally. Rather, it is a consumer product aimed at people who want to use WordPress as the platform for their e-commerce website. WooCommerce keeps track of both product inventory and orders. In addition, it provides templates for the presentation of products, a cart, and a checkout page.
