Great experience using Woocommerce (and I've tried all the others!)

4.0 2 months ago New

Comments: I have tried various ecommerce platforms, but none of them compare to Woocommerce. Whenever I set up websites for clients, I always choose Woocommerce for their ecommerce needs. Based on my extensive experience testing popular ecommerce platforms, I can confidently say that Woocommerce is the best option. I highly recommend it, especially for beginners or users with limited technical ability. It is powerful, comprehensive, and works flawlessly. Throughout all my usage, I have never encountered any glitches or disappointments.

Pros:

I love how reliable, easy-to-use, and beginner friendly it is - in particular for an experienced WordPress user.

Cons:

It is a bit on the pricey side if you want to add any of their featured plugins.

Good product but more free features needed

3.0 last month New

Comments: It's done the job but hopefully a better competitor arrives on the scene which will include more features for a fraction of the price (price includes for features not included for free).

Pros:

The integration with Wordpress which is what we use for CMS. It's quite simple once setup, and allows a smooth customer journey from entering the store to purchasing.

Cons:

The issues from updates; always have to backup (good procedure anyway) as well as the security bloatware required in order to setup/use WooCommerce.

Woocommerce gets the job done, cheap! (unless you need a lot of addons)

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: We've used woocommerce for years to manage our inventory and sell our goods, merch, and services. It's been very helpful, particularly for anything we need to ship.

Pros:

Woocommerce is enterprise grade software that is free/cheap. You can get started for free and buy the official addons for a relatively low price if you need them. If you have a developer like we do, you can extend the functionality for no extra cost. It gets the job done nicely.

Cons:

Could have more out-of-the-box functionality.

Woocommerce is the best tool for online stores

5.0 last month New

Comments: 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.
