Ecommerce allows consumers to electronically exchange goods and services with no barriers of time or distance. Electronic commerce has expanded rapidly over the past five years and is predicted to continue at this rate, or even accelerate. Now here we are more into Comparision between Ecommerce website and Woocommerce website both under WordPress framework.Let shed some light on WordPress Ecommerce website first.
We all love the ease of setting up a WordPress site and the endless possibilities for customization that it offers as a CMS. Many a WordPress user has invested countless hours (and a lot of elbow grease) into developing a blog or website, and the result can be a thing of beauty. If you wanted to monetize those efforts with a shopping cart system, it used to take finding some hosted service that looked awful compared to the rest of your website since there were no seamless integrations to be had. It’s no surprise then that eCommerce plugins and platforms for WordPress have become popular to maintain a consistent “feel” throughout the user experience.
Today many sites use WordPress as an online storefront first, and an integrated blog second due to the ease of use and content management. The options for customization are endless, so sometimes you can do more with a WordPress store than a hosted service. However, WordPress is still a small (but growing!) chunk of the eCommerce pie; WooCommerce currently has the most active installs out of any WordPress eCommerce plugin, yet it only represents 5.4% of the top one million eCommerce sites. Here is one of our latest Woocommerce works Responsive in nature:
In a short time span, Woocommerce rose to dominance in the eCommerce arena with their free plugin that let’s anyone turn a WordPress website into a full-fledged online store. Their product spread like wildfire, and today it powers more active eCommerce stores than Magento, which has been around for more than six years. So how did a free shopping cart plugin become a dominant force in a competitive industry?
WordPress was clearly ripe for disruption in this market, and Woothemes developed a framework that just might be the best eCommerce platform ever conceived. WordPress rules the web publishing space, powering nearly 20% of all websites in the world. That amounts to 60+ million websites total. But despite its widespread adoption as a web publishing platform, not a single worthwhile eCommerce option existed. Sure, there were some modest solutions like Cart66 and Wp-Ecommerce, but if you wanted to build a robust online store, your options included open-source platforms like Magento and Opencart or hosted solutions like Shopify. Here is one of our best UI design Woocommerce website in WordPress that is Responsive:
As you’d expect with anything for WordPress, it’s pretty easy to start out using this plugin. I think that’s part of the reason for it’s widespread adoption across all size eCommerce sites, from large sites with thousands of SKUs to the smaller ones selling one or two products. One of the most daunting parts of setting up an online store is simply learning how to get it done, and I think one of the biggest reasons for Woocommerce’s success is the low barrier of entry for anyone looking for a straightforward way to build an ecommerce store.
WooCommerce has seen huge adoption rates across all size websites, from ones in the top 10,000 to the smallest most obscure sites that rank deep in the millions. If you are looking to get an Ecommerce website why not drop us an email here.
