WooCommerce is a great way to build an online shop thanks to its compatibility with WordPress. You’re probably already familiar with WordPress if you’re looking into WooCommerce, which means you will be able to get your head around the platform quickly. WooCommerce integrates with the WordPress back-end which allows you to manage everything from the same place in a user-friendly way.

Why is WooCommerce the best eCommerce platform?
WooCommerce works as a plugin for WordPress, which means it’s basic functionality and basic appearance can be installed in just a few clicks.
You can sell everything from physical products to downloadable items easily. The built-in inventory system takes care of stock-taking, calculating shipping fees, download permissions (if applicable) and reporting.
Moreover, it’s extremely developer friendly.
It was designed to make customising storefronts and adding new features as easy as possible. The possibilities with WooCommerce are almost limitless.
Another reason why WooCommerce is the best eCommerce platform is that it has been developed with SEO in mind. There’s no need to worry that your products won’t get found by the search engines, WooCommerce and Google get along just fine.
WooCommerce is very much alive and kicking. It’s constantly being updated and, as of today, there are over 4 million active installations of WooCommerce running on websites all over the internet. It’s this level of mass-adoption that just goes to show how popular the platform is.
4 million people can’t be wrong.
What’s the difference between WooCommerce and WordPress?
They are two very different things that together can be used to create an eCommerce store.
WordPress on its own is a content management system (CMS). It forms the skeleton on top of which a website can be built and updated with new content. It’s all you need to build a content-based website.
WooCommerce on the other hand can only be installed as a WordPress plugin. So you need WordPress to be able to run WooCommerce, it’s not possible to set it up on its own.
The plugin allows you to easily create an eCommerce shop on your website. Once you’ve installed the WooCommerce plugin, it will integrate with the WordPress dashboard and from there you can add stock, process orders and do all of the other things you need to do.
How do I create a custom WooCommerce shop page?
To create a custom WooCommerce shop page you need a pretty good understanding of how to code a website. If you want to go beyond the default styling and you don’t know how to code websites, then you should be thinking of getting in touch with a developer who can help.
The very least you will need to have an understanding of is:
You’ll need to create what is called a child theme so that when you next update your main theme the changes you made won’t be lost.

What are the pros and cons of WooCommerce?
- It’s free. If you’re comfortable with building WordPress sites and you’re not interested in customising your online shop’s look or functionality, you don’t need to part with a penny.
- It’s SEO friendly.
- It’s secure and updated regularly to fix any potential bugs or vulnerabilities.
- It provides detailed analytics of sales.
- Flexibility in design. Somebody who is comfortable with coding websites can develop a WooCommerce shop to do almost anything.
- With over 4 million active installations, there is a big community of people out there who help each other out in online forums and Facebook groups.
- Payment gateways come pre-installed (PayPal, BACS, Cash on Delivery).
- Can easily issue discount coupons.
- Ability to calculate local tax using variable tax classes.
- Good product rating and review system.
- For very big shops (50k+ products) there is evidence that WooCommerce struggles to maintain fast loading times.
- A good knowledge of coding is needed if you want to take full advantage of its flexibility.
- Only works on WordPress websites.
- It’s not so easy to run a multi-currency shop with WooCommerce.
- Compared to other eCommerce platforms like Shopify, it lacks responsive customer support. There is no other way to get help apart from submitting a support ticket or hiring a WooCommerce developer.

Hi, I’m Charlie, Content Writer and SEO here at WE ARE PYTHON. Over the years I’ve managed a number of successful blogs and helped them grow their traffic by staying a step ahead of the competition when it comes to finding innovative ways to attract organic visitors. Without trying to sound too cliche, I really do have a passion for SEO. Being able to reach people across the globe and help them solve a problem is what drives me to produce the most engaging and helpful content I can. A fun fact about me is that, aside from being an SEO geek, I’m also a qualified scuba diving instructor. So, in my spare time when I’m not behind a computer you’ll often find me underwater somewhere!
