A complete tool for creating your online store.
This is the simplest self-hosted cart system out there. Magento is arguably more feature-full but it's a total nightmare to use and setup... way too many options. Woo has a balance of power and usability that's great for getting started and even scaling to medium size e-commerce operations.
Plus, there's a huge plugin library that even includes many core Wordpress plugins that have applicable e-commerce uses.
I've been using WooCommerce (and it's family of add-ons) for a long time now, and I couldn't be happier. I've actually taken it one step further, and I've started offering private client portals on my site to all of my customers who make purchases via my WooCommerce store. I do this by implementing a great plugin called WP-Client in conjunction with Woo. It basically lets my customers make purchases and register as customers on my site, and then they are automatically given private portal access via WP-Client. Check out their site (https://wp-client.com/) if you have a need for portals in your store!
Choosing a suitable e-commerce platform is one of the most steps to start business. In recent years, WooCommerce becomes the close friend for small business, bloggers with friendly SEO. Here is a migration solution for e-merchants who have demand to transfer their business to WooCommerce with keeping all store data.
