Overall Satisfaction with WooCommerce

Friday Next uses WooCommerce when we need to implement an e-commerce solution for businesses looking to sell their products and services online. This encompasses approximately 60% of the business Friday Next performs. WooCommerce automates many of the tasks necessary to stay connected with customers, and keep them up to date on new products, services, and news.

Pros

  • Integration with a plethora of payment gateways.
  • Automation of email follow-up for repeat customers.
  • Displays products beautifully on the web.

Cons

  • Adding text fields as add-on items for products.
  • Better fulfillment options when paired with ShipStation, for ease of fulfillment.
  • More repeat customers with the Follow-Up Email extension.
GoDaddy's product is sorely limited. Whereas it does have text fields as item add-ons, almost every other aspect of it is worse than WooCommerce. Images are saves as random number strings, taking away from the SEO power they could have with proper file names. Product Management is near impossible with GoDaddy QSC, and the visual layout is sorely lacking compared to WooCommerce.
WooCommerce can be overkill for a company or client simply looking to take donations or sell a simple, single-priced item. These sorts of sites can be accomplished with a simple Gravity Form and PayPal integration, and the extra PHP memory resources WooCommerce demands will be better served aiding the site in loading quickly.
