WooCommerce – The Online Shop for Beginners

Set up your first online shop with WordPress

WooCommerce is a free online shop extension built to integrate with WordPress and is directly managed in the extension's administration area. There are many free and paid extensions available to expand and customize the online shop.

Since adding and managing products is very easy, WooCommerce is especially suited for the inexperienced user. The back-end structure is clear and simple. Products can be easily added and administered. There are plenty of templates available to suit the requirements of different industries and branches.

The online shop’s functionalities embrace vouchers, guest checkout, product rating, upselling and special offers. Furthermore, a statistics function is integrated which allows to perform analyses on stock, sales and average daily turnover.

Thanks to customized extensions, WooCommerce may be adapted to the respective market, e.g. for legal requirements. 

Search Engine Optimization (SEO): WooCommerce offers extensions to improve the search engine ranking. Also, pages load very quickly and product illustrations are displayed immediately after opening the page. These are also essential features to reach a superior ranking.

In short
WooCommerce is excellently suited for beginners who are familiar with WordPress. Since there is no possibility of connecting with any ERP system, WooCommerce is only suitable to a limited extend for online shops with a wide product range.
