Why use WooCommerce?

WooCommerce is a free, open-source ecommerce solution created by WordPress professionals. 

It’s used by individuals, entrepreneurs, bloggers, small shops, and large organizations (including NASA). All you need in order to get started is WordPress.

WooCommerce is an e-commerce framework based on WordPress that anyone can modify and extend.  

WooCommerce has dozens of built-in features to make managing your online store easier. It integrates WordPress with a full eCommerce site, including customer registration and management, inventory, shopping carts, data security, and a large community of people available to help you out.

Adding Products

You can add products using the product import functionality, which lets you upload CSV files directly from your Excel or Google Sheets file. You can also manually enter product information into the system and easily bulk-add items.

Payment Gateways

WooCommerce integrates seamlessly with a number of payment gateways including Stripe, PayPal, Afterpay, Zip Pay and Bank Transfers. It has also been designed to integrate with hundreds of other payment gateway solutions.


The benefits of WooCommerce come from the fact that it’s a fully fledged, free e-commerce solution that takes WordPress’s functionality and extends it to enable online stores.
