If you’re considering launching an online store, you’ll be presented with many software options for building out your storefront. These choices, while initially will feel like a windfall, can quickly feel overwhelming due to the multitude of ecommerce options available.
The beauty of WooCommerce is that its potential for growth and expansion enables you — either as a store owner or developer — to build amazing things. And the more you know about the platform’s capabilities, the more you can create with it!
What is WooCommerce Really?
With WooCommerce you can create a basic online store and sell a variety of products and services that include physical goods, digital goods, affiliate transactions, and ongoing memberships. The core software can manage essential ecommerce features like international customers, inventory management, sales tax management, shipping cost calculations, and coupons.
WooCommerce’s base functionality can be augmented with over 300 extensions that can add in additional features such as bookings, product bundles, composite products, EU VAT calculations and tracking, customer documentation, returns and warranties, as well as a number of learning management systems for selling courses.
