Overall Satisfaction with WooCommerce

Our organization uses WooCommerce to power multiple online storefronts. It allows us to sell everything from bowling shirts, bowling jerseys to memberships. The great thing about WooCommerce is the flexibility to customize the product pages and overall any aspect of the customer experience on the website. Adding additional plugins is usually very straight-forward, and unlike many other platforms, the plugins are more affordable.
  • WooCommerce pages are easy to customize and are optimized for mobile.
  • Ability to create global add-ons for specific product categories.
  • Adding additional plugins to optimize the site is generally affordable and can usually be done without a developer.
  • There's no cost to get started.
  • Compared against other platforms, you'll need to purchase your domain, SSL certificate, and hosting account.
  • Creating products, attributes, and categories may be tricky for inexperienced users (not hard once you get the hang of it).
  • Installing and configuring plugins may be tricky for inexperienced users.
  • Default reporting could be better, but additional plugins can be purchased.
  • Our overall conversion rate has increased.
  • We can add more products to the website faster.
  • We can launch additional online storefronts quickly.
Without a doubt, WooCommerce is an awesome platform for many reasons. The flexibility and ease of use are something that other free platforms just don't have. We chose WooCommerce because of the many customization options, payment type integration, follow up emails, and ability to launch multiple storefronts in a matter of hours. We'll continue to use WooCommerce as the eCommerce solution for many of our upcoming projects.
WooCommerce is well suited for smaller companies looking to start selling their products and services online. We mainly sell apparel using WooCommerce, and the reason why we love it is using the global add-on feature. With this, you can specify size, color, style, etc. for specific product categories. Then when you create those products, all of the options are automatically applied to the product based on the category you put it in.
