Why WordPress?

WordPress was developed by programmers and designers to ensure that it could maintain a very high standard of quality. It’s meant to accomplish this without relying on experts to manage its updates while also aiming to remove as many complexities as possible. WooCommerce is a plugin that turns your WordPress website into a fully functioning eCommerce platform.

The result is a highly stable and secure platform perfect to run an online shop.

FAQs

eCommerce development is the process of creating websites and applications with the ability to sell products online to customers. This usually includes functionality to showcase store inventory, cart and checkout, collect payments from customers, and arrange for shipping.

There are several ways to make an eCommerce website or application. They range from simple to more complex depending on your needs and functionality.

Some of the popular solutions include Wix, Squarespace, Shopify, and our favourite WooCommerce. 

We prefer WooCommerce for several reasons.

As a store / website owner, you have the flexibility to manage your own content and inventory, and sell and ship products anywhere in the world. It’s also free, so you have complete control over your platform. It’s highly customizable and configurable, so you can make sure that your design is unique and aligned to your brand.

From a development perspective, you can rest assured that WooCommerce is safe and reliable. It’s also the most popular platform so it has great support and resources if you get stuck or if you need to find a different support provider. It’s also open source, meaning that you can move your website to any provider, and that you are not locked in by a single vendor, like Shopify.

eCommerce websites need a bit of extra love when it comes to support and maintenance. 

We offer maintenance plans so you can focus on what matters, which is growing your business. Contact us to find out more.
