WooCommerce is an open-source e-commerce plugin for WordPress websites. It allows users to quickly set up and run online stores on WordPress. WooCommerce currently powers more than 30% of all online stores, making it the most popular e-commerce platform on the web.
One of the main benefits of WooCommerce is that it seamlessly integrates with WordPress. This ability to integrate into a flexible platform makes it easy for users to add e-commerce functionality to existing WordPress sites. WooCommerce also has a very active community, constantly releasing new extensions and themes.
Regarding features, WooCommerce is highly customizable and supports extensive store customization. It comes with built-in support for secure payments, shipping, and taxes. WooCommerce also provides powerful analytics and is optimized for search engines.
A key advantage of WooCommerce is scalability. It can handle unlimited products and transactions, allowing stores to grow. Companies like Airstream Supply Company use WooCommerce to power their online stores.
While the core WooCommerce plugin is free, add-ons and customizations come at an additional cost. However, WooCommerce remains one of the most cost-effective e-commerce solutions overall.
At IronGlove Studio, we leverage the flexibility of WooCommerce to build customized online stores tailored to each client’s specific needs. We develop custom interfaces on top of WooCommerce to create unique shopping experiences.
If you’re using Shopify, Squarespace, or Wix for your online store and considering a move to WooCommerce, it’s definitely possible. We can work with you to create a new store in WooCommerce, which is an open-source platform. This means you’ll have more control and flexibility over your store compared to proprietary solutions. We’ll not only help you migrate your store and recreate it in WooCommerce, but we’ll also collaborate with you to improve the user experience and update the design, if needed. This way, you can transition smoothly to a more customizable and powerful e-commerce platform while maintaining the unique aspects of your business.

Derek is one of the best web developers I’ve worked with. He’s responsive and easy to work with. He manages projects efficiently, clearly sets expectations and provides regular updates throughout the process. He’s thoughtful to both budget and business goals and provides strategic recommendations that align with both, so he’s very highly recommended.

We didn’t have any products on the website; we simply showed that we were selling products from particular brands — there were no details. The same was true for our services page, which only had PDF files. This affected our SEO and Google ranking. When Google crawled it, nothing on it said that we were selling the products we had. If someone searched for those things on Google, our site wouldn’t show up. As a result, we started building our product pages and filtering features once we had the new template format. We redid everything on those pages in a way that product information could be filtered easily.
