Overall Satisfaction with WooCommerce

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.
  • Free base package means I can use it when I need to and not pay for it when I'm not using it
  • I can customize the e-commerce options and integrate the calendar booking
  • Payment processing is quick and easy and I can choose my provider
  • I have to install plugins to add the functionality I need
  • Sometimes I get conflicts between the plugins I have to install
  • Sometimes customization is not straightforward
  • Has allowed me to book more photo sessions
  • Easy implementation means I can create a storefront at the last minute for special projects
  • Integrates perfectly with my Wordpress website for a seamless experience
Since I don't use the e-commerce options constantly for my photography business, I didn't want to pay a monthly subscription and waste that budget during the months when I don't need any online booking options. WooCommerce allows me to install and uninstall plugins as needed to add the functionality required, but I also don't have to pay a monthly subscription for these like I would have to if I used a service like Shopify.

[WooCommerce] does really well for simple stores that don't have a lot of products. It's really easy to set up and get products added so people can purchase them online. It's not the best for really complicated stores with products that need a lot of customization; you have to find 3rd-party plugins to add additional functionality to your store and sometimes those can create conflicts between one another.
