A special chapter for Woocommerce
Although WordPress, as we have already mentioned, is used to make all kinds of sites, it has allowed us as an agency to have an accelerated growth in offering web solutions for electronic commerce. In this sense, Woocommerce, the WordPress plugin to create online stores, gave us a flexible and scalable environment, very much at the height of what our clients were needing, even above platforms such as (PrestaShop, Magento, Shopify, etc.) . This tool gave us more agility in deliveries and facilities for the integrations that we needed to carry out, ultimately this translates for the client into a better response time to their requirements.
This platform allows us to implement an online store with all the basic and standard functionalities that we expect to find: unlimited product creation, activation of offers and coupons, image gallery, organization by category, possibility of adding attributes to products, various payment systems and shipping, advanced order management, etc. The functionalities of the store do not end with those that WooCommerce itself incorporates, but we can continue to grow in usability and functionalities by adding specific plugins such as the mass import of products, the calculation of shipping costs by postal code, payment gateways with credit card and virtual wallets, product prices by quantity, generation of invoices, etc.
In addition to these features that we named, Woocommerce describes some statistics that speak for themselves (in case we still had any doubts), and confirm it as one of the most successful platforms to develop online stores.
- It has been downloaded more than 50 million times since its existence.
- WooCommerce powers 28% of eCommerce sites in the world.
- 281 new online stores with WooCommerce are opened on average every day.
