Best and most widely used WordPress E-Commerce Plugin

I am really happy with overall experience of using Woo Commerce for online E Commerce store.
Free version fulfills most of small startup business requirements.Only hosting domain and other charges are needed to setup your own Business or online store website.Configuration is effortless but may be confusing for a total non tech newbie who use shopify only.Nonetheless after some practice it becomes a piece of cake.It is a much secure platform with helpful plugins to for add-on functionality.I would really recommend it for online E-Commerce store specially which are already running on WordPress CMS.

Pros

First of all it is plugin in word press environment which makes it m first and only choice as the best for making e-commerce functionality website.It has all the functions to run an online store easily with out much technical knowledge.Various plugin supplement and extend the Woo Commerce functionalities even further beyond.Payment processing and order management is handled efficiently and effectively.Too many functionalities like bulk upload,shipping management, contact info, payment management and etc make life easier to much extent like designing forms, creating custom checkout field , shop page custom price filter and minimum or max product quantities...etc.

Cons

Not much user friendly like shopify and other competitor.Still just little practice needed to learn it.Its related add-on plugins can be expensive.I had not faced any major technical issue using it.

Reasons for Switching to WooCommerce

Because WooCommerce give the independence of choosing a hosting server of your own choice according to budget and performance needs.I had WordPress hosting experience and it operates in this environment as a plugin in which I have experience working.

Best by far overall for small biz e-commerce

Our experience and mine overall are great. There are hundreds of third-party integrations running efferently along with this platform, which makes managing an e-commerce very simple out of the box. It is easy to add many products variations, different kind of inventories, pricing features, and so other.

Pros

FreeEasy to use, understand, install and manage. Very customizable since runs on WordPress

Cons

It supposedly might find hard to work along with thousands of items and tremendously visited websites. We haven't faced many issues so far.

Alternatives Considered

Wix and Shopify

Reasons for Switching to WooCommerce

No way any of those competitors might race WooCommerce at any level other than supper stores, and I keep some doubts WooCommerce get difficulties at large scale as many people claim. In first place, it is the only completely free alternative of the market working along with WordPress, which provides a lot of customization power with ease. Additionally, there are several payment gateways providers, and you can decide your best rate other than getting tied by a particular fee in platforms such as Wix or Shopify. And talking about Magento, WordPress happens to be more user-friendly either for developers or Search Engines.

Good and bad experiences with Woocommerce.

It’s been ok and got us to where we need to be. We are thinking of switching away in the future mainly due to inventory management not being great, and very time consuming.

Pros

It’s easy to set up, simple to customise layout and overall look of the website. Very inexpensive compared to the majority of competition.

Cons

Slow and sluggish at times. A long and drawn out process to add new products with multiple sizes. No matter how high our security is, we have still been hacked twice.

Woocommerce is the best tool for online stores

WooCommerce is great for creating an online store and getting it up and running in a short time with little money. It is my preferred platform to recommend to my clients.

Pros

Its ability to integrate with other tools, addons, extensions and its extensive documentation allows you to customize many elements of the online store.

Cons

WooCommerce's base design is not the prettiest and some of its own add-ons are very expensive compared to other brands.

Alternatives Considered

Reasons for Switching to WooCommerce

The portability, integration with methods and its customization capacity in both design, UX and code to add unique functionalities.

A great alternative to Shopify

I've been working with this system for years now, and i learnt how to develop new functions, work with its hooks, customize everything. So, for me, it would be difficult to switch to another product right now. It integrates perfectly with wordpress and use same mechanisms, so i find working with it very compfortable.

Pros

That is free, is open source and have a lot of integrations.

Cons

Out of the box, according to me, misses some important features that should have been standard.
