Things to Know About Your New WooCommerce Site

So you’ve decided to join the online marketplace! Welcome, you smart businessperson, you. And luckily for you, PayGo has teamed up with WooCommerce for your online shopping cart solution. And if you don’t know a whole lot about WooCommerce, that’s okay (because we totally knew everything about it and didn’t have to google it like mad after the introduction meeting, that’s for darn sure… and that’s our story and we’re sticking to it). So here are some things to know about your WooCommerce site!

It’s Free

One of the greatest things about WooCommerce is that it’s open source, which means that you don’t have to license anything and it’s free to use. Installation of the storefront is simple, too (but if you don’t want to mess with it, PayGo can help). This also means that any information that you upload belongs to you, and not some other hosting company.

It Has Lots of Extensions

We’ve covered this before, but it bears repeating: WooCommerce has a ton of business-type extensions that will help you keep your store organized and moving like a well-oiled river (I may have mixed a metaphor there, but you know what I mean). Check them out!

It Also Works with WordPress (And Their Extensions)

It only makes sense that the most popular open source site builder would team up with an open source shopping cart. Why is that so great, you may ask? Because WordPress’s thousands of extensions will work with WooCommerce, too!

WooCommerce Works Right Out of the Box

Your WooCommerce site page comes pre-loaded with a ton of stuff you need. It has built-in payment gateways such as PayPal, BACS and cash on delivery (and if you want more, like Amazon Pay, you can easily add them). It also has the ability to calculate your shipping costs, tax rates, and online stock numbers and availability.
