"Great Service, Easy to Install and Configure"

What do you like best?

I didn't want to spend a lot of time and effort installing and configuring an eCommerce solution for our WordPress website. I found Woocommerce and was of and running in about an hour and that included integrating it with the Woocommerce Learning Management System called Sensei. Got my online class added as a product and ready to sell in this same time period. All easy enough to do for a beginner to Woocommerce.,

What do you dislike?

Nothing to date. I have enjoyed the online tutorials and those have gotten me through any issues I've faced.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great to be on a platform that is a standard for WordPress admins.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Offering eLearning courses on our real estate education website. This is a new venture for us and so we haven't started marketing yet. But we have benefitted by having an easy to install and configure tool. I was also pleased that our bank's merchant services groups is able to integrate with WooCommerce allowing us to get cheaper transaction rates that with PayPal or Square.

"Recomendado para principiantes"

What do you like best?

WooCommerce es un plugin totalmente gratuito que permite convertir tu web Wordpress en una tienda online operativa al instante. Es fácilmente configurable y permite personalizar muchos de los aspectos de nuestro ecommerce así como gestionar el proceso de venta desde la propia plataforma. Podemos enlazar el plugin con muchos de los software de facturación y contabilidad más utilizados hoy en día lo que supone una ventaja competitiva que facilita mucho la correcta gestión del negocio.

What do you dislike?

El hecho de ser gratuito es, a priori, un aspecto negativo pero, por contra, podemos considerarlo también un aspecto negativo. ¿Por qué? Porque al ser un plugin totalmente gratuito es más vulnerable a ataques de extraños. Siendo el plugin para la creación de ecommerces por excelencia en la actualidad deberían mejorar muchos aspectos en seguridad para la tranquilidad de los millones de usuarios que lo utilizan hoy en día en sus comercios.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it and share your opinion! Also you can try other alternatives like Prestashop o Shopify

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Principalmente el poder establecer un negocio en línea de forma totalmente gratuita y cómoda, rápida y eficaz. El beneficio más importante es la capacidad de conversión de nuestros ecommerces gracias a la instalación del plugin en conjunto con el gran abanico de extensiones que podemos descargar. Gracias a ello tendremos multitud de opciones para personalizar nuestra tienda, el proceso de pago, los tipos de productos, el envío, la facturación y hasta el reenvío de emails de confirmación para los pedidos.

"Cumple con todas mis necesidades"

What do you like best?

La plataforma es en su mayoría intuitiva. Parece que hay un flujo de trabajo directo y aparente, sin muchas campanas y silbatos. Uso WooCommerce de una manera muy limitada, así que es genial para esa función.

What do you dislike?

Ahora usamos una forma diferente para hacer sonar las órdenes. Entonces en el back-end, no está integrado. No soy el que toma las decisiones por los gastos de integración y no sé el alcance de lo que tendría que cambiar con nuestro negocio para hacerlo, pero esa es la mayor pérdida de tiempo. Es mi trabajo, es cómo recibo horas, pero no es eficiente en absoluto.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si todas sus compras y envíos están integrados con WooCommerce, genial. De lo contrario, y planea usarlo lo más barato posible y conectarlo en otros sistemas manualmente, con su personal, funcionará, pero puede haber algunos puntos débiles.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Estamos garantizando un rápido servicio al cliente a los clientes. El principal beneficio es que las órdenes telefónicas, que pueden tomar hasta 40 minutos de tiempo del personal, ya no son necesarias. Esto libera a los asociados de ventas para que estén con los clientes en la tienda en lugar de llamar a la gente para que reciba pedidos.

"Buena herramienta de compras"

What do you like best?

Que la plataforma básica es gratis. Fue bastante fácil de instalar, especialmente porque este no es mi fuerte. Ofrecen un tema gratuito que puede personalizar marginalmente para su escaparate.

What do you dislike?

Estoy usando el tema y los productos de WC pero mi sitio web no funciona correctamente. Sigo recibiendo rebotes entre WooCommerce y GoDaddy y realmente no resuelvo mi problema. WooCommerce exige ciertos estándares para el estado de su sistema y GoDaddy dice que no pueden cumplir con esos estándares. Después de pasar varios días rebotando sin respuestas reales de ninguna de las partes, simplemente me di por vencido. Si no puedo resolver el problema de la configuración por mi cuenta, busco otro proveedor de comercio electrónico.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si bien esto es básicamente gratuito, debe tener en cuenta que el plugin WC Facebook (del sitio WC) no funciona. Además, los complementos de envío son caros y solo son válidos por un año. Cualquier ahorro que pueda obtener al usar los complementos de WC se compensa automáticamente con el precio del complemento.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tener un sitio de comercio electrónico. Puedo tomar tarjetas de crédito y enviar desde mi sitio sin un gran gasto.

"WooCommerce gives you everything to adjust your products in the best way"

What do you like best?

WooCommerce is a platform that allows you to customize your products in the best possible way. Imagine you have some technically difficult product that has a lot of variations depending on its components. You would go mad creating each one separately, so here is WooCommerse to solve it. You can introduce simple product or a variable product and the platform will automatically generate all the variations of it. In case there are too many variations you can use Composite Product type to let the customer choose himself each component at the moment of buying on your website and thus to get the product that suits him best. The prices will be changing according to the type of the product your client has chosen, you just need to introduce all the necessary information in WooCommerce. For me it is especially useful because now we are introducing hundreds of products on the web site

What do you dislike?

There is no option to sort categories by the date of creation, it could be very handy in case you need to delete massively the categories that you introduced by mistake

Recommendations to others considering the product

It may seem difficult in the beginning, but it is not. Do recommend to give it a try

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Presenting product in a handy way for a user, website looks professionally.

"La mejor solucion e-commerce de codigo abierto"

What do you like best?

Su escalabilidad y el tamaño de la comunidad que se ha formado, Con la integración de otros plugins es posible solucionar todos los recursos que faltan a woocommerce fácilmente... Multi-idiomas? Hay un plugin para eso, Mejorar el SEO, hay un plugin para eso, vender un producto formado de muchos otros productos agrupados? Hay un plugin... y así para casi cualquier limitación que encuentres... la mayoría de los plugins son gratuitos y los de pago suelen ser bastante asequibles, además por ser código abierto cualquier desarrollador puede modificar caso no encuentres un plugin que ya haga lo que necesitas.

What do you dislike?

Igual que con Wordpress (donde Woocommerce funciona) necesitas un BUEN servidor con OPCache habilitado, una versión reciente del PHP y además plugins de cache y optimización y un CDN... Es MUY FÁCIL crear una tienda, no tan fácil que la tienda sea rápida, principalmente cuando añadas miles de productos a tu base de datos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Asegúrese de que tu servidor sea rapido y tenga opcache habilitado así como una versión reciente del PHP.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Principalmente ofrecer toda la información de nuestros productos de forma fácil y intuitiva, lo usaremos como un catálogo online en la fase 1 de nuestra nueva web (aún en beta) añadiendo ventas en una segunda fase de region en region (empezando por España).

"Finally a user friendly interface"

What do you like best?

Woo Commerce allows for many individuals to work on a website. Before it was difficult as you needed a more advanced level of web development leaving website updating to one or two people. Now when changes need to be made anyone can update the site. This has made for a more team environment. Working together to create a site has been great.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were more options for adding unique coupons. We only have a few options where I would like to offer customers a buy one get one 50% option. I would also like to pick and choose which products can have special coupons. This is the only negative I have found. However I am sure I could locate an additional plug in to help with this feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't hesitate to try. Woo Commerce is great for business, especially e-commerce. We are now able to work as a team to create a user friendly experience for our customers. The design options are great, fantastic custom options and overall an easy platform.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Now many employees can make website changes rather than just one person. Changes get made much quicker rather than when we worked with code . With code only a true web developer could work on the site. This caused many delays in getting the site functioning properly. Now when a customer calls and needs immediate assistance we are able to help them more efficiently than before.

"Good software"

What do you like best?

Wordpress is the best content management system that allows installing WooCommerce and get transactions with it. I can easily edit any part of our site, from the main page to the purchase button. An important point is that it is so easy to use and that anyone can use it and integrate on their site to manage orders. I like that it is very easy to configure. It comes with several free themes that look beautiful, and they do not take care of anything to use the basic necessary functions.

What do you dislike?

The client account and the purchase of e-mail templates are little complicated. I do not like that WooCommerce still not suitable for mobile devices, because today's generation does everything on mobile devices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's great for stores that are at a budget level. But you can still use it for more advanced stores. I can make my site easy to manage the product, and I can make an online store with a customer request. My customers are happy!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You will have the opportunity to create your online store in minutes. Your customers can buy your products with comfort. With this WP plugin you can make your store unique.

"The best tool for an ecommerce if you want a fully customized one"

What do you like best?

WooCommerce is a powerful tool that can be integrated into your Wordpress site. It has a lot of inbuilt features, but you can add a lot more customization options via plugins. Great integration with some of the best payment gateways, like PayPal or Stripe. Also with some powerful e-commerce tools such as MailChimp. The stock management is also great.

What do you dislike?

There aren't so many things that I dislike about WooCommerce. I use it in so many projects and it has always been a good tool. The worst thing, in my opinion, is the automated email templates customization. They could implement an editor to easily customize the emails that the systems deliver automatically to the customers. Maybe I would also say that sometimes it causes some problems with multilingual sites developed with WPML plugin. The issues are usually for translation synchronization. And with some plugin or Wordpress core updates could appear some bugs, but they usually solve it when they release a new update.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For me, the best option if you want to build an e-commerce with a total freedom of creation, design and platforms that you want to integrate. Other platforms like Shopify or Bigcommerce are cool too, but you have to follow their rules. With WooCommerce you are free to do whatever you want, but you'll have to have a little knowledge or experience with Wordpress sites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

E-commerce creation in my clients Wordpress sites.

Great stock and orders management.

"The easier, open-source way to do online commerce"

What do you like best?

Its open source, free, have loads of integration and plugins available and development resources in a way that, if none of the 9999999 plugins available do what you need, (a rare case scenario) you just have to develop (or find a developer that can do the trick) and you fix the problem by yourself! A+

What do you dislike?

Its resources-hungry... once you start putting some hundreds (thousands in our case) of products, a cheap server will not be able to keep up with its requirements, so make sure you have a good server for it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it, its free and easy to setup, you can easily knnow if it meet your needs or not (check the plugins available before concluding it doesnt meet your needs and be sure to put it in a fast server)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We hadnt an e-commerce before, so its a new thing to our company.

"WooCommerce is an Excellent WordPress eCommerce Platform!"

What do you like best?

It's so easy to use! We just migrated from an old installation of OSCommerce, and the difference is like night and day. The integration with WordPress is seamless and it's handled all our needs with the help of a few readily available plug-ins. I love being able to generate variations of products at the click of a button, linking related products, selling in multiple currencies, and so much more!

What do you dislike?

It doesn't come with an offline credit card gateway, which is a must for my business. I had to purchase a plugin to do what should be native functionality...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make all your product photos the same size (height and width) so they line up nicely in the shopping area. You can change the level of zoom by changing the resolution - the higher the resolution, the higher the level of zoom when the product is published.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WooCommerce allows us to showcase and sell our products on our WordPress website. We sell in multiple countries with corresponding currencies and prices and WooCommerce easily handles the complexity.

"the best software I have used for my online shopping business"

What do you like best?

Woo commerce is very user friendly. I don't have any background with webdeveloping and coding but woocommerce made it possible for me to run my online shopping business. My online shop went smoothly with Woocommerce

Woocommerce has a lot of compatibility plugins I can use to add more features into my website such as adding discounts, promo coupon, setting up advance shipping rates and even wholesale discounts which cannot easily done. But with Wocommerce, I made that without any problems

Payment methods isn't a problem as paypal option is available there

What do you dislike?

Nothing much, just lacks payment method. Hoping that bitcoins will be added soon along with Payza

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are newbie, don't worry woocommerce is very easy to install.No need to be an expert do set up your own shopping site

"the software you need for your online shopping business"

What do you like best?

Woocommerce is very easy to set up. I don't have coding background when I first started my online shop business. With WooCommerce, I was able to set it up without any pain in my brain. Setting it up is just a matter of clicking next next thingy!

What I like the best about this is that it is compatible with most wordpress theme and plugins. The ability of pricing items, providing discounts, creating coupons and charging shipping fee is very easy with WooCommerce.

Dashboard wise, it tells me all the time my gross sales each day and 30 day period as well.

Stock management as well is a nice feature here. I can track all my inventory without any problem.

What do you dislike?

Insufficient payment method, the only thing useful now and fully functioning is paypal. It says there bitcoin is an option too but when I set it up, its not showing up

Recommendations to others considering the product

I swear that WooCommerce is very easy to setup. If you are doubtful with your skills, their support is very helpful. They would assist you till you understand everything about the software

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

i am using woocommerce for my online business. I have realized that its not that hard to start your online shopping business

"Excellent option for a startup"

What do you like best?

I can write a lot of positive about this service. Most importantly, it is free and easy to install and use. The administrator's dashboard is simple and convenient. A customizable section of reports, you will see only the data that you need, without unnecessary information. A large community of WooCommerce users. It the internet you can easily find a lot of useful information about this service, as well as many forums, blogs, and video tutorials. In general, a really customizable service. The service has excellent support and it works all the time. Also, there are many paid themes available, you can change the design as you like.

What do you dislike?

Looking at the fact that the service is built on the basis of WordPress, it carries some security problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

WooCommerce is an excellent option for a startup or a young team. If you are a small business owner, you should give WooCommerce a chance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main purpose of working in WooCommerce is basic needs in e-commerce, namely the listing of orders, deliveries and receipt of payments.

"Features Rich and Free open source online webstore"

What do you like best?

Are you looking for to build webstore within some minutes without any technical knowledge? then woocommerce is the best solution for you! I am WordPress developer and I also develope online webstore inside WordPress using woocommerce plugin.

woocommerce is the great plugin to make the online store with great features such as product management, product categories, and product selling statics. One of the greatest benefits of WooCommerce is that it is free. This toolkit will make selling products online very easy, and it will not cost you a thing. All you have to do is download this plugin, and you will have it in just a few minutes.

Using woocommerce The platform includes detailed order tracking and customer engagement tools, which allow your customers to look at their past orders and get updates on their delivery statuses. It also comes with different shipping options and tax settings. so if you are selling products with tax and VAT then woocommerce can also manage that.

woocommerce is also stands for security it uses secure method for product management and payment, also woocommerce regular gives the updates so woocommerce also take care that the store owner always stays up to date!

One of the best benefits of WooCommerce is its provide to do all the customizations options. This means that your online store does not have to look like everyone else’s. Right now, WooCommerce has more than 40+ themes to choose from, so you can definitely find one that you like. Once you have picked the theme you want, you can start experimenting with the colors and styles. If you get tired of a certain WooCommerce theme, you can always change it.

so in my opinion woocommerce is the best platform to start your online webstore!

What do you dislike?

I only don't like one thing in woocommerce and that is woocommerce is still not good for mobile devices. as today's generation make all things on mobile so woocommerce should also need to make management better on mobile devices too so store owner does not have any worry and they can manage store whenever they go! despite this WooCommerce is still a better choice for those who want to secure profits and have no worry about cost. The platform is also easy to use and manage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to make webstore with easily product management features and I can make webstore with what client requested. and my clients are happy!!

"Un gran complemento para WordPress para el comercio electrónico"

What do you like best?

Se ve y funciona de maravilla, es fácil de configurar y cuentan con un excelente servicio de atención al cliente. Son compatibles con la mayoría de las principales pasarelas de pago y brindan alertas por correo electrónico cuando se realizan los pedidos. También me gustó que pudiéramos exportar pedidos.

What do you dislike?

Un poco caro y es difícil saber qué complementos necesitas de inmediato. La mayoría de los complementos tienen un costo adicional, pero hay otros gratuitos. Hemos tenido algunos problemas con productos virtuales corruptos, como descargas de videos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

WooCommerce tiene una gran cantidad de complementos, según sus necesidades. Recomiendo comprar una pasarela de pago si aún no la tiene. Si tiene uno, asegúrese de que sea compatible con WooCommerce. Hay muchos tutoriales y videos sobre cómo configurarlo.

"One of the best e-commerce platforms to use with Direct Bank transferences"

What do you like best?

WooCommerce for WordPress is easy to use, have a enormous support and libraries/plugins, themes you could use. So for start you could begin with a very advanced developed e-commerce and you could just put the final touches. Obviously that depends of the requirements but you have a lot to work with.

What do you dislike?

A lot of the most used functionalities are not free, so you have to buy a plugin or an extension, or developed from the start.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should probably want to use a theme, could be paid or free, to give the interface a heads up. Later if you want add Internationalization should use a Internationalization Plugin that have a great support, always depending on the theme and the plugins you have installed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We develop e-commerce websites so we use WooCommerce for WordPress to get a heads up on the e-commerce set up. That and because is greatly supported for themes and plugins, that makes really easy to work with it.

"More than listing your products!"

What do you like best?

Woocommerce helps me to track my items and creates reports about the actions of the each item's past. Reporting is the best part that I like. Also, MailChimp integration really makes my job easier. I can directly make relation of the product IDs between MailChimp and Woocommerce.

What do you dislike?

I can't say anything that I don't like actually. All the things with Woocommerce are helpful. When I need help, their support team immediately reply my requests.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to see detailed reports of your item sales you need to give Woocommerce a try. Also, there are lots of options like making discounts and applying the discount code to the products, integration of your local tax amount, shipping calculation etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automated emails, customization of the mail templates, tracking reports of the total sales or even a campaign. These were the needs that I wanted to get and Woocommerce helps me to obtain them.

"The best e-commerce platform hands down"

What do you like best?

The open source goodness. It is easily expandable and easily customized. Because the software is a plugin built on Wordpress, the infrastructure is very well thought out and allows easy expansion of various features. The REST API is also available and fairly easy to connect to, which makes it great for developers.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the openness of the software can be cumbersome. Turn off one switch, three switches turn on. Turn off one of those, two others turn on, etc. The open source-ness means that any time you install a plugin to add functionality, it can break the whole installation. This is true with WordPress but is something that developers deal with on a regular basis working with WooCommerce.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the best free option for an e-commerce store. IT'S FREE. Why not get it? With Shopify, you pay monthly. With many others, they take a cut of your sales. WooCommerce allows a team to put together a very fully fledged e-commerce store that does everything one can imagine, FOR FREE. LIKE ZERO MONIES FREE. WHAT IS NOT TO HAVE.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Built an e-commerce store and built-in SEO and mobile app rest API.

"WooCommerce is the Best eCommerce Platform that you can OWN"

What do you like best?

I like that I can set this up for my clients to own. They don't need to pay monthly for the eCommerce system and they can easily scale up when needed with WooCommerce's useful plugins.

What do you dislike?

The constant updates can be cumbersome, but they are crucial in running the software within your own platform like Wordpress anyway. Wordpress is free but needs constant update for security purposes and so is WooCommerce and other related plugins.

Recommendations to others considering the product

WooCommerce is simple to setup, but I would recommend for new users to hire a professional to set it up first on your Wordpress platform so you are not overwhelmed by it. Once all your systems and integrated and products are setup, request a tutorial or check out online WooCommerce videos on how to do it yourself when it comes to uploading/updating new products.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WooCommerce provides the necessary ecommerce solution for my me and my clients. It allows us to customize the user's checkout experience, integrate with systems like Infusionsoft, Mailchimp, Convertkit etc. Being open-source, it's fully customizable & scalable to any type of business.

"Flexable e-commerce platform for flexable website platform"

What do you like best?

I love that WooCommerce is made to run on top of Wordpress. Wordpress is an amazing website platform that you can build anything on top of. I have used WooCommerce a few times to build an online store on top of Wordpress. It makes building a store into the same website that you have all your content on very easy.

What do you dislike?

The number of add-on plugins for WooCommerce is limited, especially the number of free plugins.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have a website that is built on Wordpress and you want to have an online store, WooCommerce is the way to go. If you don't but you want to have one website with content and a store than look into the Wordpress/WooCommerce combination.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I wanted to have an online store on the same website that I host other content on. This has definitely been realized because it works on Wordpress that I have done so much other great stuff with.

As for me I really struggle with the plugin. Will be much better and helpful if it's will be much easy and common for everyone. With the price I ok I don't think that it's expensive.

With this software, you can make a store as unique. You can navigate your content and site. You will have the ability to create your online shop a reality. Your clients can buy your products from their comfort.

"A year integrating with Woocommerce"

What do you like best?

Woocommerce is popular and reliable e-commerce plugin that runs on the Wordpress content management system (CMS). It integrates nicely with Wordpress, using the underlying functions and data structures as much as possible. For example, a customer in Woocommerce is a user in Wordpress. It builds onto, rather than reinvents, the CMS.

Out of the box Woocommerce adds considerable value before you even have to consider paying for premium features.

What do you dislike?

The premium (paid features) of woocommerce that we've used have been a bit of a disappointment. While focused and targeted to a particular business problem, they tend to be less flexible, less comprehensive, than the woocommerce plugin itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Woocommerce is easy to customize, not only through configuration menus, but also in the code. Documentation can be found on the Woocommerce website and many third party sites for code customization. Or you can spend money on premium Woocommerce and third party plugins to get features you need quickly. The disadvantage of some third party plugins, in particular, is that they don't always give you quite what you need or they integrate in a non-familiar way with Woocommerce.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are selling physical product directly to consumers, affiliates and retailers. Customizing the checkout process was reasonable. Tax is collected where appropriate. Shipping is calculated. Integration with Stripe and Paypal has been sufficient. Once everything is set up, it just works.

What do you dislike?

As for me, I don't see any bad lines in this software. I guess will be better to make all process about working tools are more simple. Yes, this definitely will help a lot to understand a specific of work faster.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely, I recommend it to you this software. As I know that it is great opportunity to make your online business work much better. Also, you can do with WooCommerce a modify and customize anything that you will need. This product will make your sales much productive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We like that we have more big opportunity to create our online store. With this software, we are concentrating on our need more effective. We are like to use them as they change our job for the better. We are always working on top of the most famous content management system.

"Perfect for a small-medium sized business"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Woocommerce is that if it doesn't do something you want it do, there's likely an inexpensive plugin that will allow you to do it. For example, ship products based on weight or quantity, or have customers customise their orders in almost infinite ways whether it be by size, colour or even (with plugins) allowing customers to essentially create their own variations of your product - one example would be a "design your own t-shirt" plugin in which a user can upload whatever they wish and it will be sent to you in a t-shirt printable form. The functionality with plugins is endless.

What do you dislike?

The lack of initial features in the system can mean that you may end up purchasing several different plugins, which, while each relatively inexpensive (usually), the costs can add up - especially if some plugins require a subscription fee.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While Woocommerce is free, consider exactly what you will need to sell online and see if Woocommerce has these features. If not, look on the like of Codecanyon for plugins and work out what the actual cost will be.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Marketing with Woocommerce is great - there's a number of ways you can automatically email users who may have left their basket without paying, or other forms of automated marketing. It connects easily with email systems like mailchimp for sign ups and for automated marketing too so it segments my users and sends them relative emails based on past purchases or browsing history. Something that was either imposssible or not feasible beforehand.

"WooCommerce is a top choice for eCommerce"

What do you like best?

I like that WooCommerce has a strong presence as an eCommerce solution. A big part of that success is due to its being part of the WordPress ecosystem of plugins.

What do you dislike?

I doubt that WooCommerce would succeed as a standalone eCommerce platform. Their customer support has been lacking in the past, though it is improving lately with the addition of live chat and faster turnaround times on email-based support tickets. Still, the core plugin code suffers from issues like rounding errors and not all of the ancillary plugins are worth the full cost renewals Automattic forced on its customers in 2017. Alternative plugins exist that are just as good at much less recurring cost.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're new to eCommerce, consider hiring a specialist to at least walk you through setup and administration before you "go it alone". For larger implementations, hire an agency that specializes in WooCommerce implementations or a full-time employee who has had experience with at least 3 or more medium to large sites. Definitely budget a few hundred dollars minimum each year for helper plugins that you'll find the need for along the way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WooCommerce fits the bill for the majority of small-to-medium eCommerce shops when it comes to quickly enabling product creation and purchases. Braintree and Square plugins make it particularly easy to set up a merchant account and start taking orders within an hour or two. While WooCommerce does scale very well to millions of orders per week, big scaling requires really specialized knowledge of MySQL, web server settings, and high-performance hosting platforms to pull off.

"Amazing plugin. Possibilities are endless. "

What do you like best?

I use WooCommerce for a few of my stores. It’s not 100% user friendly, but it’s close. It has amazing features that shopify and bigcommerce charge more for. You can download multiple free plugins to use with WooCommerce or pay a one time fee for the paid plugins. Compare that to a monthly fee like shopify and bigcommerce and it’s perfect for anyone on a budget.

What do you dislike?

There are a few things I dislike. Sometime the settings are confusing or not easy to find how to change something, but for the most part it’s easy to use and has a lot of possibilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They have lots of updates that keep it secure and easy to use with additional features, etc.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It’s great for stores who are on a budget. But can still be used for more advanced stores. I like starting out each of my online stores with WooCommerce and until another platform proves to be more beneficial for that store.

"E-commerce de facil uso"

What do you like best?

WooCommerce es muy fácil de instalar, configurar y usar. Es realmente amigable.Ademas, es rápido de aprender, incluso para usuarios de cualquier nivel de conocimientos web. Trae todo lo necesario, y ademas da reportes sencillos. No tiene altos requerimientos, y las plantillas son fáciles de editar para un programador junior. Y es ideal para negocios que vende unos pocos productos en su pagina web y tienen un presupuesto acotado.

What do you dislike?

Es muy básico, carece de funcionalidades avanzadas y para hacer un poco mas, hay que instalar módulos. Por ejemplo, para generar cupones de descuento, para gestionar transportistas, ventanas de despacho. Ademas la visual de la tienda es muy simple, y requiere pagar una plantilla premium o tener habilidades de programación web para poder hacer una mas atractiva.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si en tu negocio, vas a vender unos pocos productos, y necesitas o quieres mantener otras cosas en tu pagina web, como por ejemplo un blog, ademas cuantas con un presupuesto limitado, Woocommerce es para ti. Pero si necesitas tener un E-commerce con todas las funcionalidades, mejor es implementar otra aplicación, como prestashop o magento.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Necesitábamos una tienda para ventas a empresas donde nuestros clientes no pudieran cotizar productos por volumen. Instalamos woocommerce y en solo un par de días ya estábamos recibiendo cotizaciones a través de la pagina web. Ademas, nuestro personal de ventas a empresas, aprendió a usarlo relativamente rápido, considerando que no tenían ningún conocimiento técnico previo. Woocommerce nos permite hacer, de forma básica, lo necesario para nuestro negocio.

"Simple and efffective"

What do you like best?

WooCommerce's key point is that it is so simple and easy to use that everybody can use it and integrate it in his/her website in order to manage the orders. I would say that WC makes e-businessess easier to manage because it doesn't require too much time, they warn you when someone makes an order so all you have to do is accept it. Also, it's easy to add new products, as well as discounts, make reports, etc.

What do you dislike?

Nothing in particular, I think it is a very good selling platform with no mistakes. Just to say something, I can say that it is specially useful for beginners, but if you're already a consolidated enterprise, you might need something more powerful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

WooCommerce is easy to use, and allows you to have great results in few time. But I recommend it only if they are beggining the business or they don't have too many sales.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With WC we manage our orders. We créate our webpage with the store with Wordpress and WooCommerce and we are very happy with the result. With little effort we have great results.

"Very common and very powerfull"

What do you like best?

When I first started using WooCommerce I was relatively new to Wordpress. WooCommerce was a great choice because its so popular, that it was very easy to find online tutorials for almost everything (specially if you choose a bundle host-woocommerce). Now that I know how it works I still like it because its very powerful.

What do you dislike?

Maybe the range of templates. As a start-up our products have evolved a lot and so, our site has to change accordingly. If Woocommerce had more templates this process would've been a lot easier. I'm not saying the templates they offer are bad, but I would like to see more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My biggest recommendation for new users would be not to get discouraged if WooCommerce doesn't seem to be easy to use at first. If you are used to managing a wordpress site, then this will be quite easy. If you are new to it, it will take some time, but it's worth it! There are other solutions out there like Shopify that seem to be easier to use (and I guess they are), but I really don't think is that big of a deal if you think long term.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you are setting up an online store or pretty much any type of online business, woocommerce is probably suited for you. I think the best improvement we've seen thanks to woocommerce is our SEO position. Other solutions don't have as many options as woocommerce has regarding SEO.

"The best store platform ever , intuitive and simple ."

What do you like best?

Its simplicity, intuitive, robust and well developed, is in my opinion a platform for your e-commerce is already above many, perfectly integrated with wordpress, as I always tell my students and clients, if you can write a simple article in wordpress, you can ride a product in WooCommerce, is simple and efficiently .

What do you dislike?

In many cases, the plugin presents instability, should include a plugin or automatic function to support various themes, and should improve the function to include sizes rather than separated by | one size should be separated by (,) or another special character that is more intuitive to the editor or administrator, also more should be done frendly the cross-selling .

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you are looking to implement an e-commerce store, WooCommerce offers the most intuitive solution with better performance, much simpler than other platforms of its kind, ncludes a detailed log of what is happening on the server, sold who buys, who order a product, better integration with various platforms and payment gateways, excellent documentation, support and framework.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have solved many projects shop, fast and efficiently, facilitate learning and autonomy to my clients and students in the area, I always recommend WooCommerce both customers with time in the area as entrepreneurs, for its easy learning curve, its robust performance and intuitive way to assemble a product, as well as its integration with multiple platforms.

"Most affordable way to open your own online shop"

What do you like best?

I like that it's super easy to setup, comes with a couple free themes that are nice looking, and they don't charge anything to use the basic, necessary features.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that they don't have more free themes because the paid ones are extremely pricey. Also, the calculated shipping feature they have built in doesn't always pull accurate shipping costs and won't let you customize it on other shipping methods.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely try it. If you have a host and a domain, it's a no brainer. Sign up for Wordpress and immediately install WooCommerce. Please remember to find a good them that is compatible with WooCommerce as it is not the same as standard wordpress layouts. They are a few free ones out there but it's worth paying a little for a professionally designed them. It will still cost less than a monthly subscription service and whatever features you don't find on the platform, you can easily fix by installing one of millions of free plugins on the wordpress marketplace.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to list my items and display them in beautiful fashion. The site runs smoothly and the best part of all, I'm not paying monthly fees like you would with other eCommerce solutions. If you have a domain and a host, just sign up for WordPress and install woo-commerce today.

"Excellent tool, if you want a tool with features, and not a super-simple plug-and-play option"

What do you like best?

There's basically no scenario, from running 5 e-commerce stores with varying levels of complexity in the products, that I haven't been able to successfully execute with Woocommerce (plus a handful of Woocommerce extensions of course). It's possible to set-up a fully functional store at no cost, though most will probably want at least a few plug-ins/extensions to make things sing and dance.

What do you dislike?

It takes a lot of work to get Woocommerce's own themes to look any bit all like they do in the previews they provide. Newer plug-ins generally aren't tested extremely well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you like digging into features to figure out how things work and how to tweak settings, you'll enjoy Woocommerce. If you want a simple plug-and-play solution, and don't know that you necessarily need deep options, there are simpler, hosted products available. I don't do code, but lightly learned PHP due to using Woocommerce. For most users that wouldn't be necessary, but a few times it saved me from having to hire a programmer to make specific changes that weren't native options in Woocommerce.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our first use of Woocommerce was building an ecommerce site for our monogram jewelry line. Lots of options from the initials for the jewely, 60+ color and pattern options, chain length options, etc. Woocommerce was able to handle all the tiered levels of variations right out of the box. All other options we found would have required custom coding or advanced upgrades to achieve those options at that time.

"WooCommerce delivers a powerful shop for beginners and experts alike"

What do you like best?

WooCommerce has many powerful features out-of-the-box with an attractive price tag, free! Set up your shop easily just by installing the plugin and the user-friendly screens allow for simple customization.

What do you dislike?

Customer account and purchase email templates are somewhat difficult customize unless you have experience with PHP.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn basic HTML, some CSS, and get acquainted with the WooCommerce plugins that are available on Wordpress. Do a case study of other e-commerce engines. Decide if you are going to focus on simply e-commerce or are going to have other content available on your website. We have found that if you are developing a website to include content, a store, memberships, subscriptions, etc. that WooCommerce is the most cost-effective option if you are willing to accept some limitations. Some features may not appear to be as "professional" as other more customizable online software, but are straightforward enough to get the ball rolling. Let's face it, if you are considering running an online store and are a new business, unless you have some type of large capital infusion, you need to start simple and not pay a lot of out-of-pocket expense just to run an online store. This is where WooCommerce really hits the mark! Generate enough capital through a fundamental e-commerce store and then move on to something more sophisticated (that's if you want to at that point!).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Strengthening our online website to be integrated with e-commerce to drive sales online. We have been generating sales on the web in addition to direct-relationship marketing.

"Customer Service is Lacking"

What do you like best?

That the basic platform is free. It was fairly easy to install especially since this is not my forte. They offer a free theme that you can marginally customize for your storefront.

What do you dislike?

I am using the WC theme and products yet my website doesn't necessarily work correctly. I keep getting bounced back and forth between WooCommerce and GoDaddy and not really getting my problem solved. WooCommerce demands certain standards for their system status and GoDaddy says they aren't able to meet those standards. After spending several days being bounced back and forth with no real answers from either party, I simply gave up. If I can't solve the settings issue on my own, I make look for another ecommerce provider.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While this is basically free, you need to be aware that the WC Facebook plugin (from the WC site!) does not work. Also, the shipping plugins are expensive and only good for one year. Any savings you may realize by using WC plugins is automatically offset by the price of the plugin.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having an e-commerce site. I'm able to take credit cards and ship from my site without a huge expense.

"wonderful plug in for wordpress sites"

What do you like best?

i love how easy this is to add to our wordpress site and that is allows for easy integration with shipstation and amazon pay. this is a wonderful addition to our website. i also love that i don't have to collect credit card information, i can just integrate amazon pay and paypal instead. creates less liability for me and my business while still allowing consumers to purchase online securely.

What do you dislike?

I always get an error message that shipstation can't email the order confirmation. Haven't been able to figure out how to fix this problem. I also have not found a solution to this problem via their support channels.

Recommendations to others considering the product

very easy to install and use. love how they give step-by-step directions and offer "what does this mean" explanations about each input area. Every question is answered and they give examples on how to best fill out each section. Plus I love the sandbox version so you can test your configuration before it goes live. I am not a computer person nor do i know code, but i found this product to be easy to use and pretty self explanatory. Owning a small business owners need to be a Jack of all trades, so WooCommerce makes this easy for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

allow us to securely sell our products on our website. I don't have to collect and secure credit card information which is a huge laibilty we don't have to deal with anymore.

"WooCommerce - Powerful yet simple"

What do you like best?

I've been woocommerce for e-commerce stores for a long time now. I'm taken over by the customization part. Woocommerce is very much easy to customize and very easy to use, as well. Also, the security and performance of the platform is over whelming.

What do you dislike?

Costly Extensions is the thing I dislike the most. Although, there are free extension, the premium extensions cost almost the same amount as a premium theme costs. Similarly, there are free themes one can install but it has it's own limitations. As a current user of WooCommerce, I've setup several stores. But most of the times, the clients have to pay some money to purchase a theme.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd recommend WooCommerce for every small business owners who's taking their Business Online and to E-Commerce startups. It's more than just a E-Commerce website. It can be customized. It can be integrated in a website. It also has the required Analytics module.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used woocommerce to build an online store for my clients and help them increase their sales. We chose WooCommerce over other alternatives because of the heavy customization features and also because it was very simple and easy to use.

"Better than Shopify"

What do you like best?

Easy to use and install with Wordpress/WooCommerce compatible themes

Scalable - Works with small to large businesses

Free and Affordable plugins available

No monthly fees like Shopify

Integrates with almost every other software via a plugin

What do you dislike?

This is very little that I dislike about WooCommerce. The only thing that I can think of is that the backend order management could use a facelift and be more appealing/user-friendly for beginners.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are debating between WooCommerce and Shopify, I highly recommend WooCommerce. Shopify charges for every feature, including transaction fees! You want as little transaction fees as possible when operating your business. WooCommerce is very customizable and has the ability to grow with your business. You can also find a plugin to work with all your other business software such as your CRM, accounting software, email marketing software, etc.

"Awesome"

What do you like best?

The output that it gives you. What I want to say is that despite all the difficulty in usage that it may have, it allows you to easily create a selling platform inside your webpage. It is extremely customisable and very useful, specially for small enterprises with few resources.

What do you dislike?

It is kinda difficult to use it. It is not as complicated as it may seem but it is not easy either. You need time and to read carefully the guides, so you have to spend some amount of time there. But the result is worth the effort.

Recommendations to others considering the product

With a little bit of time, WooCommerce can become a powerful tool. Totally recommended

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Great For Beginners And Starters"

What do you like best?

One of the best things about Woocommerce is its ease-of-use and ability to be built out by the novice user. As a developer, I know that when I turn a website over to my client that they will be able to update any product easily. If my client wants to change the product title, description, pricing or other options, I know they can do it themselves without having to call and submit a change order.

What do you dislike?

One of my primary dislikes for Woocommerce is also one of my likes. Don't get me wrong this platform is excellent for beginners and do-it-yourselfers however it lacks some functionality that you get through other platforms like Magento. It seems with Woocommerce there is always a plug-in that has to be installed to get the system to do what you want whereas with magenta how a lot of these features are already built in.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure that you know the client that you are creating an e-commerce website for. If you're looking for a smaller store with a handful of items, this is the way to go. However, if you're looking for something a little bit more robust with additional features I would recommend investigating Magento. Please don't get me wrong WooCommerce is a terrific product but is not for everyone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

From a developer standpoint, WooCommerce has allowed our company to take on smaller jobs where perhaps a more expensive e-commerce system would have been just outside the budget for the client. It has also helped us identify which clients are serious about e-commerce and which ones are not. In many cases, I have started my clients off with an e-commerce site built through Woocommerce to see if they are serious about becoming true e-commerce professionals. So instead of creating a Magento system only to find out that my customer is not shipping their orders or applying to customers I can start them off with will commerce and see work goes from there.

"A Smooth Self-Hosted Solution for E-commerce stores "

What do you like best?

It’s free. The base plugin is free, although there are also premium extensions (we’ll talk more about those later). It’s easy to learn. If you’ve spent some time using WordPress, WooCommerce should come naturally to you. It’s very popular. The more widely used a plugin is, the easier it will be to find help if you run into a problem.

What do you dislike?

There are only minor issues ifWooCommerce may pack in a lot of options, but you don’t need to be intimidated by its scope. In fact, the platform as a whole is relatively easy to use, thanks to its integration with WordPress. You can set up WooCommerce and configure its essential features in a matter of minutes. you are not a very technical person

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You can add more powerful features. WooCommerce comes with most of the basic ecommerce functionality you’ll need, but you’ll probably want to use extensions to add more advanced options.

They’re easy to set up. Remember how we set up the WooCommerce plugin in an earlier chapter? Installing extensions works the same way, although they’ll only function if WooCommerce is active on your site

"Decent E-commerce platform that has many issues "

What do you like best?

We liked the fact that woo commerce is cheaper than is competitors, a selling point that for us was how we started working with them. Woocommerce also delivers on being s feature rich platform provided you find a developer that can customize it and tailor it to your bunsses needs.

What do you dislike?

All this customization comes at a price, a large price that we had to pay our developer to. Out of the box woo commerce doesn’t have much and it’s App Store is small and missing many big players that other platforms have.we also had problems with finding a developer that would developer our woo commerce store as it is one of the lesser known and less used platforms out there. All our savings ended up going straight to a developer to pay for our store and customizing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a cheap and feature rich online store for our business. We realized woo commerce is not for us as it is wildly unpopular and we had to hire developers to develop and customize our store without the results we wanted and having a small App Store Helier the experience.

"Most Flexible, Extendable E-commerce Solution for WordPress"

What do you like best?

Easiest e-commerce solution I've ever used to set up and sell different types of products. I regularly develop with WordPress and Woo Commerce is a natural fit. I've worked with platforms like Shopify and looked at other "carts" for WordPress but WooCommerce gives you complete control of your store and is extendable via plugins.

What do you dislike?

Some of the official WooCommerce and premium plug-ins are quite expensive. I've learned to be more thorough in vetting projects before I quote a WP site project. I looked at a third-party last week for auto ship functionality that was $500. For that kind of fee, I have to raise my quote or advise the client to buy it outright. Thankfully lite versions of many plugins are available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it's important to do a thorough needs assessment before implementing Woo Commerce. Explore everything from the number of products to shipping, billing and payment options. If you need an enterprise level solution, Woo Commerce will likely suffice but may take some time to set up if you have many products or need advanced ordering or shipping options. Features not included in WC core may require premium plugins or custom development.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Woo Commerce for my own site (selling virtual service packages) and for several clients – from luxury handbags to urban clothing. The out of pocket cost is low. Woo Commerce connects to PayPal and Stripe (both free). The only real cost to use it without configuring extra plugins is the time spent putting in products and descriptions.

"Incredibly easy online shopping system"

What do you like best?

The ease with which setting up woocommerce on my website was amazing. I was able to set up my entire shop in a day without any help or frustration!

What do you dislike?

I do wish that there was a built-in way to connect woocommerce to my email delivery system so that I could followup with clients faster. Having to use a 3rd party system to do this is tedious and costly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can't begin to describe how much using WooCommerce changed my business! I was previously manually creating pages for each of my products, which was time-consuming, tedious, and not efficient at all. I also had to create multiple systems for delivering products to customers, which WooCommerce has easily taken care of for me! I no longer have to worry about my customers finding their products, being concerned that they might have been sent to their spam folders, or not delivering in a timely fashion. WooCommerce is working for me 24/7/365, allowing me to easily and quickly make money in my business no matter what time of day or night. If you are looking for efficiency in your business, I can't recommend WooCommerce enough.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is now incredibly easy to deliver virtual products to my consumers. I can update pricing in an instant, make coupons easily for special customers and situations, add new products quickly and efficiently, and always trust that it will look great on my website on a computer or mobile view.

"WooCommerce Review"

What do you like best?

I liked that you could set up the most basic storefront and get things rolling very quickly. If I wasn't as picky as I am, I would have you used the most basic themes and opened up shop. But I'm picky so I spent a lot more time customizing our storefront. The ability to add plugins so quickly is also a game changer. There are so many plugins available and WooCommerce easily configures them for your storefront with a simple install.

What do you dislike?

I wish that the themes available for storefront were a little more in depth. There would be no way I would want to open up shop without hours of customizing the theme. But not everyone is like that. That was just one of the harder things to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have some issues with the support team that has caused us to lose a lot of data. Many times the support team isn't as knowledgeable about customizing the website or as knowledgeable with all plug ins available. I understand that it would be extremely hard to know all the plugins so I do get it but I sometimes just wish they had more knowledge of implementing them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WooCommerce allows us to sell to customers all over the world. Setting up shop can be done so quickly without having to use any custom HTML or CSS. The ability to sell everywhere, and ship everywhere is wonderful! I also like to automatic messages that are send out to customers after they have placed their order.

"Best eCommerce Platform for Startups and Small Businesses "

What do you like best?

WooCommerce is one of the best eCommerce solutions if you're a startup or small business. Everything is sorted out and very easy to use in WooCommerce. You don't have to install it manually, just search for WooCommerce under WordPress and install it directly.

You can run woocommerce on a shared server, you don't need any high cost or high configuration server to run woocommerce. WooCommerce is highly customizable, you can customize it as per your needs very easily if you have knowledge of PHP/MySQL. There are a lot of paid themes and plugins available online of WooCommerce, so you can easily complete your custom needs with the help of these.

Report section is pretty good, shipping options, checkout system, pre-installed payment gateways, filter section under product listing page, product detail page everything is so great in WooCommerce.

The best part is there are a lot of help forum, communities, video tutorials available online in case if you need help or want to learn. Another best part is you will get WooCommerce developers at the cheapest rate in comparison to other eCommerce solution and there are lots of developers available online.

WooCommerce is one of the best solution ever for eCommerce I come across, so just use it once and you will love it for sure.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about WooCommerce, only one thing to be to take care that WooCommerce plugin version should be matched with external plugins in case if you're using external plugins for WooCommerce.

Rest everything is so perfect in WooCommerce that there's nothing to dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a startup or having a small business or you're a web development agency who wants to start developing eCommerce stores, WooCommerce is just for you.

Start using it and you'll like it. Everything is so perfect in it, the admin interface is very user-friendly and lots of video tutorials available online.

"WooCommerce - Easy to get started - Expensive to maintain"

What do you like best?

What I like best about WooCommerce is that it has a host of features that customer expect and they're free (out of the box) . Features like Variable pricing, Advanced tabs to display more item-specific context about a product or service. The interface is easy to use and doesn't require a lot of guess work.

What do you dislike?

Costly plugin enhancements and slow support response.

As a web-developer and a css designer in Saint Louis, my customers have always been a "Show Me" experience and expect quick-response times when working on a project.

With WooCommerce - You can't deliver on expectation that showing them it works (bug free) and that resolving conflicting bugs (theme or non-woo plugin related) in the code will be fast. Its just not possible when WooComm support team takes 24-48 hours just to tell you they want more info that they didn't mention the first round of discussions. It causes heartburn.

"Best eCommerce solution ever"

What do you like best?

There is a long list, First and foremost it's free and very easy to install and use. Very simple and user friendly admin interface. Highly customizable, reports section is pretty good, cart system, shipping options, pre-installed payment gateways everything is so good in WooCommerce. Every page is beautifully predesigned whether it's home page, category page (product listing), product detail page, shopping cart, checkout system, everything is well managed and well designed. There are a lot of free and paid themes available online, so anyone can change the look and feel as per their own way.

Another best part, wordpress has the largest community of developers and one can get almost all the required woocommerce plugins in free and can fulfill their custom requirements. There are a lot of online forums, blogs, video tutorials for woocommerce help and learning, so anyone can easily learn it or can solve their problem.

Woocommerce is the best ecommerce platform for startups and small businesses, if you've not tried it yet, just go for it and you will love it.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing much I dislike about woocommerce, still category (product listing) page design could be little better, advanced filtering plugin could be pre installed and custom reporting need some improvement.

Still these features you can use it via paid themes available online.

"Great way to get started selling online"

What do you like best?

I was completely new to ecommerce when I started this project. Looking back, what I like best about Woo is that it has everything you need to get a store off the ground with minimal knowledge of ecommerce. Shop, cart, and checkout process would have been daunting to figure out separately, but Woo has all of that stuff pre-built and ready to go.

What do you dislike?

Now that I've been hammering away at it with a decent-sized volume of customers/transactions, I am starting to dislike how beholden I am to plugins and their limitations. While the bigger plugin developers seem to be pretty responsive, I don't always get the answer I want, and have had to figure out workarounds more than once.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before you dive in, figure out as much of what you may intend to do ahead of time, then look for the plugins that will get you there. Search for compatibility issues between plugins before you even download them. Test on a staging/development site before implementing whenever possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Needed a store that wasn't on a "we do everything for you" platform. This was a nice balance of DIY and pre-built. I'm not sure we've eclipsed sales/conversions from the older platform, but we have more say in design and function.

"WooCommerce is Key Component of 1-Day WP Workshop Website and Training Class"

What do you like best?

What I like and what others who I train to use WooCommerce like is that it mirrors the same experience of an offline retail store when setup properly. For instance, many people use WooCommerce to sell physical goods, such as apparel items like T-Shirt, Hoodies and more. However, you can also sell services as long as you have a visually attractive mockup of the service with an attached description that tells the buyer exactly what they are getting.

What do you dislike?

The checkout process is way too complicated and should be shortened by default. For instance, a buyer sees your product and then they "Add to Cart." In default, they have to view the cart before they can go to "Checkout" unless they change the setting so that when they click "Add to Cart" they go directly to the cart and bypass the "view cart" step. This is an unnecessary step and should be eliminated.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend WooCommerce to everyone who is considering an E-commerce WordPress website or blog. Nothing else comes close as far as a plugin that does everything WooCommerce does.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I sell a service, which is a training class, which teaches people to setup an E-commerce WordPress website or blog on Google Cloud Platform in just 8-hours. For me it would be crazy if I did not have an E-commerce solution like WooCommerce live so people can see I practice what I preach. Most all of my E-commerce websites run WooCommerce.
