WooCommerce, which is built on WordPress, is open-source and easily accessible for anyone, just like WordPress itself. But how would you go about using it?
Using WooCommerce for your Business
If you’ve been looking at different platforms for your eCommerce store, odds are you’ve come across WooCommerce. It is the most popular eCommerce platform, holding close to half of the entire market share in most contexts, including worldwide. With almost half of all eCommerce websites being built on WooCommerce, it is important that any serious logistics provider would put in the effort to develop solutions compatible with it.
Shipping with WooCommerce
WooCommerce, thanks to its immense popularity, also offers a wide array of plugins that can be downloaded and applied. Besides SEO tools, payment gateways and other add-ons, the WooCommerce plugin library also offers many shipping options.
While shipping plugins can work for some users, others find that adding plugins to the website may complicate their user experience or contribute to the slowing of the website. For this reason, it may be preferred by some people to use a separate platform for shipping.
