Overall Satisfaction with WooCommerce

We use WooCommerce as a sales platform for a few client websites that we have built. It's a great way to implement a shopping cart feature into any WordPress-based website. It makes it really easy to list products, set up shipping, and take credit cards via a slew of different payment gateways.

If you are building an online store in any capacity, WooCommerce plus its slew of plug-ins is a great option.
  • Ease of use.
  • Slew of plugins to get anything achieved.
  • Great support from the company.
  • Can easily build products, either real or virtual, or even subscriptions.
  • Sometimes it feels like there are too many options - finding a way to remove unused items would be a great feature.
  • Some of the additional plug-ins are very expensive, but yet necessary.
  • Positive: low cost to start up, and allowed us to start selling right away.
  • Negative: better plug-ins have a high cost of entry. For example if you want to do subscriptions you need a paid plugin for it.
  • Positive: easily integrates with PayPal and Stripe.
Since WordPress is free, and the core WooCommerce is free, there is zero commitment to the system. Other e-commerce platforms have a monthly fee. Don't get me wrong, if you need the power of something you use the right tool for the job, but if you are okay working the code, finding the right plugins, and doing some HTML/PHP to make the shop look good - WooCommerce is a great, free option to get into e-commerce.
