What is WooCommerce?

WooCommerce is a open source plugin, or functionality-focused extension, for WordPress. It has been again and again downloaded over thirteen million times and powers almost 37% of all online stores. When integrated into a WordPress website, WooCommerce shows up in basic product management, order processing, and shopping cart and other related functionalities.

WooCommerce can generate a basic online store and sell many products and services that include physical and digital goods, affiliate transactions, and ongoing memberships. The basic software can manage essential ecommerce features like international customers, inventory management, sales tax management, shipping cost calculations, coupons and many more.

WooCommerce’s base functionality can be enhanced with over three hundred different extensions that can add extra features such as bookings, product bundles, composite products, EU VAT calculations and tracking, customer documentation, returns and warranties, and also a number of learning management systems for selling courses.

What Does WooCommerce Do?

WooCommerce provides fundamental store functionality right out there, with a free plugin available from the Plugin Directory, or straight from your WordPress dashboard.

While it has scores of available extensions, it also offers some incredible functions right out of imagination.
