WooCommerce has quickly established itself as the best WordPress plugin for adding eCommerce functionality to your website, it is used to power over 39% of all eCommerce stores online – a staggering market share total considering it started off life as a simple fork of the existing Jigoshop WordPress plugin. Since Automattic acquired it in May last year the number of add-ons and themes has taken off incredibly.

Why use WooCommerce?


WooCommerce as mentioned, is now owned and operated by Automattic, a very large company behind WordPress.com and a number of other high profile businesses which is valued at over a billion dollars. With such a large company and team behind it you can be rest assured that the product is being maintained to a very high standard, it received continuous updates and improvements and has a great customer service team in place. This should put your mind at ease that it’s a good quality product from which you can build your eCommerce website without the fear that the company will go away or the product will stop functioning with future versions of WordPress.

I personally use WooCommerce to run some eCommerce stores of my own and have been using it for years with absolutely zero problems – it functions very well and there isn’t much you can’t achieve with it, especially considering all the available themes and add-ons that are also now available.

If you are wanting to quickly and cheaply build an online store, I wouldn’t recommend using anything else at this point.

We have covered a lot of the different types of WooCommerce themes here :

In this collection we will be looking at all the extra WooCommerce plugins, extensions and add-ons you can get which will add all the extra functionality that you may need for your own eCommerce store.
