In the event that you wish to convert your own WordPress website into a web-based store, one best solutions is WooCommerce. With about 7.5 million downloads, it is effectively the most prominent eCommerce WordPress plugin. It is one of the 10 most prevalent WordPress plugins >by and large.

ECommerce websites sometimes require considerably more memory and CPU (resource which are allocated to you by your webhost) than a standard WordPress website since they are bigger and more unpredictable than a straightforward site. The resource usage of your WordPress ecommerce website (WooCommerce in this case) will ultimately come down to how many pages, plugins and people are on your website at a given time.


WooCommerce, which was developed by capable people at WooThemes, is presumably the most well-known and generally utilized free eCommerce plug-in for WordPress. It is full with mind blowing features. These capabilities and very extendable module enables you to transform your WordPress site into a million dollar top class eCommerce store. A best aspect concerning WooCommerce is its brilliant collection of free and paid plugins or extensions, which you can tailor your online shop to meet your particular needs. It gives you a simple approach to handle stock, installments, shipping, and that is just the beginning. WooCommerce gives you the ability to track customers, products, orders and even stock quantities. It lives up to expectations for all intents and purposes while not impeding your website existing functionality. Being that WooCommerce is just a plugin for WordPress, it can be easily added to any WordPress website and can be activated or deactivate without have any adverse effects on the website.

Features included in WooCommerce:

  • Unlimited products and categories
  • Product variations (same type of product but different variations)
  • Product attributes
  • Shipping systems (able to calculate shipping price for both local and international)
  • Stock management
  • Reports
  • Promoting
  • Charge

Those are just a few of the features which are available in WooCommerce out of the box (in a brand new installation) but the power of the WordPress eCommerce plugin can easily be extended by installing additional WooCommerce plugins. For example, you can easily add features like free gift, quantity discounts and automatic product feed for Google Merchant centre.
