What is WooCommerce?
WooCommerce is an advanced e-commerce plugin built for WordPress.
Wordpress, although the biggest and most user friendly CMS platform, doesn’t have native e-commerce functionality. However in 2011, an open source plugin called WooCommerce was developed that has taken the world by storm and WordPress websites to the next level.
Since then, WooCommerce has become one of the top e-commerce platforms on the market, with over 30% of online businesses benefiting from it’s services.
Why is WooCommerce the best plugin for my business?
Being able to login and update your online store whenever you like, without having to pay a developer every time you need to make a small change can have a great impact on how you run your online business. Having complete control over your website is essential to your success. By installing Woocommerce into your content management system, you are able to add, remove and edit all of your product/service information with ease and in your own time.
Many e-commerce platforms can be difficult to operate as they’re not built for regular every day people and can be over complicated, filled with jargon and settings that you’re too scared to touch incase it affects your site. The fact that WooCommerce is so user friendly means that if you can operate programs such as Facebook or Microsoft Word, you’re going to easily navigate your way through WooCommerce for WordPress.
How can WooCommerce custom development help my business?
Setting up WooCommerce isn’t as easy as downloading a plugin and installing it. There are many things that can go wrong when installing plugins into a website, so it’s best left to the experts to ensure that the installation runs smoothly and doesn’t break any other functionality that’s already installed.
Our WooCommerce experts can not only setup WooCommerce, but also optimise, speed up and secure WooCommerce to ensure that your website functions efficiently, this can often result in a higher ranking in google organic search results.
With many themes, templates and plugins available on the market to take WooCommerce to the next level, you know that you can turn an already powerful platform into something tailored to suit your businesses requirements perfectly.
Every business is different and requires different functionality and design, so although an off the shelf theme or plugin may be okay, a WooCommerce custom theme, custom template or custom plugin can separate your business from the rest of the crowd and make operating your online business significantly easier and with a greater impact.
Perhaps your shipping setups don’t include store pickup or international shipping options, or maybe you are unable to add more than four photos to your products. Perhaps you’d like a hover effect when your mouse moves over links, a drop down menu featuring your store categories, Google maps embedded into your contact page, social media integration, or even the ability to incorporate shopping feeds such as eBay & Amazon integrations for added online exposure. If you can dream it, we can do it.
Our WooCommerce theme development and customisation service can be compared to buying a standard basic house, or paying a little extra to have it exactly how you want it. Sure the basic house (The off the shelf template/theme) is a roof over your head and is functional, but in the end it’s basic and not exactly what your family needs. However what if you could choose your floor coverings, upgrade to stainless steel appliances, pick your paint colours, bench tops, tiles, kitchen cabinets and have the house (Or e-commerce store) that you’ve always dreamed of – that’s what we specialise in.
Having a custom online store that stands out from the crowd can be the difference between whether a customer chooses to shop with you, or a competitor.
One of our specialised WooCommerce consultants can discuss in depth how theme customisation and WooCommerce plugin development can work for you and come up with a strategy to build a website that can help take your business to new heights.
