Why WooCommerce is the Best

May 12, 2019

60.7% of all websites that use a Content Management System (CMS), use WordPress.

If that statistic alone does not convince you, in this blog we will be explaining from our over 15 years experience in web development as a company, Why WooCommerce is the Best.

Great Value

WooCommerce comes with the greatest value of all, being completely free!

What's more is that WooCommerce comes with lots of features upon install and is quick to build with.

Some of these features include:

  • Customising New order, Cancelled order, Processing order etc. email templates
  • Setting up region based VAT/tax rates
  • Coupon support
  • User account control
  • Variable products
  • Custom product attributes
  • Product categories and tags
  • Order management system
  • Shop, basket and checkout page management
  • Product sorting and search filters

Easy to use

WooCommerce integrates with and uses the popular WordPress Content Management System (CMS).

WordPress has an easy to use, simple user interface which makes it easy to add, change and remove content as well as tweak settings on your site.

WordPress is also easy to manage with its built-in updates management system.

This allows you to update your plugins and themes from within your WordPress admin dashboard as well as notify you when there is a new version of WordPress available.

These updates can be done with a click of a button. Not to mention that WooCommerce itself can be installed with a click of a button!


WooCommerce has been proven over many years with its initial release in September 2011 and has been improved upon continuously with frequent security and feature updates over the years.

Moreover, since May 2015, WooCommerce is now owned by Automattic, the operator of WordPress.com.

This helps WooCommerce further seamlessly integrate into WordPress and guarantees ongoing support and development for WooCommerce.

Popular and Well Supported

There are thousands of WooCommerce users and developers which makes solutions to common user problems easy to find and already answered in the shape of online guides, online forms or tutorial videos.

In addition, online development documentation is also accessible and well written, which is great for other developers.

Remember, Google is your friend!


With WooCommerce, you are not tied down to one single hosting company or one single digital agency.

You own your WooCommerce store and you are free to take your application code to different hosts and developers with ease.


WordPress has over 50,000 plugins on the official WordPress plugins marketplace and over 4000 themes to choose from on the official WordPress themes marketplace.

This makes WooCommerce easy to customise and integrate which means that WooCommerce can be used for vastly different projects and still fit the needs.


WooCommerce state themselves that in terms of scalability, the "Sky is the limit. We’ve seen instances of shops with 100,000+ products listed, handling thousands of transactions per minute."

This makes WooCommerce an ideal choice for large-scale e-commerce stores.
