What is WooCommerce?
WooCommerce the most popular ecommerce platform and it continues to gain market share due to its flexibility and user-friendly interface. It is easy-to-use for businesses of all sizes, from mom and pop shops to large corporations like Harley Davidson, New Balance, and Weber Grills.
While there are a lot of ecommerce options like BigCommerce, Shopify, and Magento, WooCommerce is only compatible with WordPress websites. While most ecommerce platforms require you to use their platform, the WooCommerce plugin can turn your existing WordPress site into an online store. In addition, WooCommerce can be fully customized to match the look and feel of your brand.
At TheeDigital, we specialize in using WooCommerce and to build beautiful online stores with an excellent user experience. We also take the time to get to know your business’s needs and goals to create a successful ecommerce store.

WooCommerce Online Store Benefits
WooCommerce + TheeDigital = Ecommerce Success
While WooCommerce is a free plugin that can be added to your WordPress website in minutes, having a developer, like the experts at TheeDigital, install and set up the plugin is the best way to set yourself up for success. This is especially important if you’re building your site from scratch.
When we set up your online store, we take care of the following:
- Building your WordPress website
- Customizing your WooCommerce store
- Adding products
- Setting up shipping options
- Configuring conversion tracking
- Set up third-party integrations
- Optimizing product pages & images
- Optimizing your site for search engines
- Adding extensions
While WooCommerce is compatible with any WordPress theme, some themes are better designed for the integration. When you choose TheeDigital to build your website, you can be sure your site is ready for WooCommerce. If you’d like to add WooCommerce to your site but you’re not sure if your theme is compatible, contact us for a free site audit.
Yes! Whether you’re selling ebooks, music, or art, WooCommerce makes it easy to sell digital downloads.
WooCommerce can handle thousands of products, but the number of items your store will be able to handle depends on your website host. More products means your site will need more memory. (TheeDigital can host your site so you can always be sure your site is performing at its best!)
While WooCommerce is a free plugin, there are costs associated with owning a website and online store. These will vary based on your host, website theme, additional plugins, and more.
This is a common question when people are looking to open an online store. WooCommerce and Shopify are both great options for ecommerce and we don’t believe one is better than the other. In fact, we build sites on both platforms! To learn more about the differences and which would be best for your site, give us a call at 919-341-8901.
