Overall Satisfaction with WooCommerce

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.
  • Updating it is very easy because it runs on WordPress and you use WordPress' plugin update architecture.
  • There are lots of third party plugins to add whatever functionality you need. You also only install the add-ons that you need so you don't have a very bloated system.
  • There are many different payment systems that you can use with WooCommerce
  • It is easy to add new products because it uses Wordpress' editor.
  • It easily integrates with external services like print on demand services.
  • Because of the add-ons you need to install to expand the functionality, it takes time to research each add-on
  • It is not a "install and use right out of the box solution" like some online store services. You need to configure everything.
  • To get a nice store you also have to configure all the other Wordpress parts like choosing a good Wordpress theme.
  • It takes a lot of work to get a nice looking store
  • 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 is cheaper than the other solutions I evaluated. It is a more complicated platform but because of that it is much more flexible. In the end it was an easy choice to go with WooCommerce because we already were using WordPress for our website and it made sense to incorporate WooCommerce into our current web infrastructure.
WooCommerce is a great platform to create an inexpensive if not free online store if you have the time to learn about it and configure it well. It is especially a great online store platform if you already are experienced using Wordpress since it incorporates so well into it. There are also many great plugins to help you integrate parts of your store into your other content pieces on your WordPress website.
