WooCommmerce is an e-commerce plugin built to integrate with WordPress seamlessly. Its main task is to transform a WordPress website into an online store. The plugin is available in different languages versions, and its operation and operation mechanism is relatively simple.
In the WordPress panel, you can enter products and define their parameters, such as descriptions, photos, price, and inventory. People browsing your store will gain cart functionality so they can order the offered products quickly and conveniently.
The WooCommerce plugin allows you to create a fully functional online store based on WordPress. Using it you can not only create simple stores in addition to the existing WordPress website, but also large, independent online stores that give complete control to both store owners and convenient shopping for the user.
WooCommerce is not a separate e-commerce platform; it is a plugin for WordPress. Launched on September 27, 2011, the plugin quickly became popular for its simplicity in installation and customisation, and for the market position of the base product as freeware. In just a few years, this extension has become one of the most popular e-commerce solutions in the world. Currently, WooCommerce holds about 25-30% of the global market for e-commerce platforms. The popularity of WooCommerce is mainly due to WordPress CMS and its incredible online community.
The WooCommerce plugin installs easily, like any other WordPress plugin, but gives much more possibilities than the average plugin.
Suppose you are a beginner and decide on the WordPress + WooCommerce platform for the first time, and you do not have experience in using WordPress. In that case, you do not have to worry because the interface is friendly, intuitive, and easy to use.
Creating a WooCommerce-based store gives you everything you need to run an online store. The WooCommerce platform provides full integration with payment systems, shipments, sales statistics, and so on. It also gives you complete control over the store from taxes, through inventory, to supervising customer accounts. You can add and remove extensions, and change the look and settings of the store.
