Getting started with your own online store has never been easier or more scaleable when you work with Digital Monopoly.
We design and build feature-rich ecommerce solutions for small businesses using WooCommerce. Start selling online today with all the latest features and best practices to grow your brand.
WooCommerce is a highly customisable ecommerce solution that includes everything you need to start selling online. It now powers more than 28% of all online stores, making it one of the most popular platforms on the web. Here is why WooCommerce is the preferred platform we use to build ecommerce sites:
Built for WordPress
WooCommerce is available as a plugin for WordPress, one of the most widely used content management systems in the world. It can easily be integrated into existing or unique themes through custom development.
WooCommerce is completely open source unlike other ecommerce solutions that limit how you can build your online store. You have complete control over the look and feel of your store so you can easily customise it to reflect your brand.
As your business continues to grow, you want a solution that can adapt to a constantly evolving digital landscape. WooCommerce is built to be as simple or intricate as you want it to be. So you can add just the features you need but still extend the functionality of your store with extensions.
WooCommerce isn’t just limited to physical products. It can also be used to deliver digital goods (e.g. software, ebooks, etc.), charge recurring subscriptions, and even book appointments for local service providers. WooCommerce is flexible enough to adapt to any specific need.
Other popular alternatives to build an online store include Shopify and Magento. Both platforms are attractive options but are very different in terms of their setup and overall features.
Magento is a robust ecommerce solution. Just like with WooCommerce, there is no shortage of features available to set up a seamless experience for your shoppers. It comes with its own theming system to customise how your store looks and it can also be integrated with a number of third party solutions through APIs.
What makes Magento attractive is that it’s built for scalability. But the downside is that fully configuring a store requires requires more technical expertise so it’s not as user friendly. Extending the functionality of your store through some of the additions comes at a hefty price and often requires a skilled developer. Magento does have a free community version however this has no support and is several versions behind the production version. If you do decide to get a licensed version of Magento there are significant licensing costs whereas WooCommerce core is free.
WooCommerce vs Shopify
Shopify is another alternative that offers an all-in-one solution for building an online store and managing your products. Just like with WooCommerce, it has an intuitive interface for customising your theme, adding new products, and setting up plugins to extend your store. Perhaps its main selling point is the step by step guide that enables even those with little technical expertise to build their own stores.
The downside is that Shopify is a self-hosted solution which requires a paid subscription but with some limitations depending on the package you choose. There are also additional transaction fees if you use external payment gateways.
WooCommerce is the clear winner with its simplicity and low cost.
If your site is already powered by WordPress, you’re already perfectly set up to start selling online. At Digital Monopoly, our skilled developers install and configure WooCommerce to work seamlessly with your site.
WooCommerce is easily one of the most versatile platforms as it provides the flexibility to transform any WordPress site into an online store.
