We’ve been developing and designing websites for over 13 years, however we began offering eCommerce website development and design with WordPress in 2009 because we had so many clients request this service.
At the time we used several eCommerce plugin platforms like WP eCommerce, Jigoshop, Shopp, WP eStore, Ecwid and MarketPress to name a few. All of these platforms provided some great features, however they also had limitations and we found that we couldn’t develop and design certain types of ecommerce websites.
WooCommerce is Released
WooCommerce was released in 2011, however, we didn’t begin developing and designing eCommerce websites using the new e-commerce plugin platform commonly known as WooCommerce until 2012. We quickly realized that WooCommerce was not just your average ecommerce store plugin, so we slowly began phasing all of our e-commerce website build-outs using WooCommerce exclusively.
Today, we develop 8 out of 10 e-commerce websites with WooCommerce.
Why WooCommerce is for you?
- Perfect for both small and large-sized online merchants
- Open Source which means it will continue to be improved by the WordPress community.
- Simple to install and learn.
- Customization is limitless in that you are only limited by your creativity.
- Base store plugin is free of charge, which includes updates as they come online.
- Compatible with hundreds of theme frameworks.
- Today, 39% of all online stores is powered by WooCommerce.
WordPress Themes: Here’s a list of themes we’ve used in desiging and developing e-commerce websites since 2012. Which, by the way was only a year after its initial release in 2011.
- Studio Press – Genesis
- Premium Coding
Woo Commerce Extensions:
Unlike a lot of e-commerce store plugins, Woo Commerce has the ability to increase and expand its features with what they call extensions. The base store plugin packs a ton of features for your online store, however occasionally you may need to add or expand a feature by adding an extension. Take a look at the list of extensions we’ve worked with in the past five years:
Woo Subscriptions, PayPal Powered by Braintree, Stripe Gateway, USPS Shipping, FedEx Shipping, Authorize.net, Ship Station, UPS Shipping, Table Rate Shipping, Dynamic Pricing, PayPal Pro, Product Bundles, Smart Coupons, Gravity Forms Product Add-ons, Memberships, Tab Manager, Name Your Price, Composite Products, Product Vendors, Zapier, Checkout Add-ons, Wishlists, Currency Converter Widget, Newsletter Subscription, Points and Rewards, PDF Invoices, Local Pickup Plus, Cart Add-ons and Chained Products.
