Pros: When it comes to choosing the right eCommerce platform for WordPress, it's the most rock-solid, safest choice for any long term use based on my experience from over a dozen store launches. - The plugin is frequently updated, compatible and tightly integrated with WordPress (as WooCommerce was purchased by WordPress' parent company in 2015) - The core WooCommerce plugin is freely available to install, which would work for many small, generic storefronts. - Offers the largest selection of third-party plugins/extensions available for WordPress ecommerce. - Wide out-of-the-box support with popular third-party WordPress themes. - Relatively easy and fast to set up, with good documentation; offers a few free starter themes via the WooCommerce store. - If you're willing to pay, WooCommerce can do just about anything and integrates with almost anything. - The WooCommerce core plugin is built mostly barebones (using extensions to add functionality), which brings better speed and less bugs. - Good customer service support and detailed documentation for their paid WooCommerce add-on extensions. - Offers very powerful Zapier support (requires a paid add-on). I've never had any point where I've considered using another online store platform with WordPress, or even one of the many non-WordPress hosted ecommerce website subscription solutions.

Cons: - WooCommerce extensions are surprisingly expensive and also subscription-based, requiring an annual fee. Inexpensive third-party alternatives exist, but there is risk involved. - Building an extended "platform" such as a membership site / offering subscriptions (for example) can require multiple paid WooCommerce add-ons that rack up hundreds of dollars in annual fees. - WooCommerce mobile app tools do exist, but do not offer much functionality beyond sales reports. - Highly customized WordPress stores using a lot of plugins are at an increased risk to see major conflicts and performance degradation, and troubleshooting can be difficult.

Comments: We've enjoyed WooCommerce during the last few years and have found it to be a solid e-commerce solution for our business. The system continues to improve and grow and we would recommend it to any companies looking for a powerful, customizable platform from which to launch their online sales and manage their customer base.

Pros: WooCommerce forms the backbone of our e-commerce website and we've been using it for around five years at this point. It handles a high quantity of orders with ease and its customization options are so far-reaching that if you can dream of a plugin for the system, it probably already exists or is under development somewhere (this may have something to do with its integration into Wordpress). Recently, we've been utilizing the Subscriptions feature to more accurately manage our customers' accounts, and this feature is particularly useful for recurring transactions. Coupons are easy to create and keep track of and WooCommerce can also be linked to external systems for more accurate monetary calculations and other relevant business features.

Cons: Reporting within the system does leave something to be desired. We've found that the reporting dashboard is fairly limited, particularly for more advanced metrics that can be found in systems like Quickbooks. However, as noted above, the system can be linked to other systems using plugins and various connectors, so it's possible to extract that detailed sales data if need be. On occasion the sheer amount of customization options can be overwhelming, as well, though this is a better problem to have than a system with too few options. The various plugins just need to be managed in a coherent fashion to ensure site stability.

Comments: WooCommerce has allowed me to create virtual stores in a short time, their plugins facilitate and save a lot of time since they can integrate vital features for a virtual store, such as shopping carts, payment methods, search engine, etc. I can also integrate it with custom templates, so it allows versatility and originality, it also helps to make SEO in a more simplified way, this tool has been improving over time, it is not what it was a year ago, it has been in constant evolution, I am quite satisfied with its implementation.

Pros: What I like most about WooCommerce is that it makes the creation of sales websites much simpler and more dynamic, it has support for a large number of templates, plugins that add very useful functions, such as coupon systems, integration of methods of payment, mail confirmation, what I like most is that it allows to register a massive amount of products to the website without losing performance, it is optimized for SEO which facilitates having a greater reach on the internet.

Cons: It is a tool that facilitates a lot when it comes to creating virtual stores, a detail to take into consideration is that its line of learning is quite steep, so it is not ideal to be used by people who do not have enough knowledge, it is a intermediate-advanced tool usually takes quite a while to set everything up, although this is worth using.

Pros: *UI The looks of the Woo are getting better after each new release (happens very often) and their team is doing a lot to bring the best to the customers. *Out of the box features When you install Woo and and have in mind to create a simple shop fast - Woo can help you do just that in a matter of minutes. All you need is to follow simple guidance and in few hours you can start selling.

Cons: *Pricing Even though woo commerce itself is free - any kind of additional plugins are just unreasonable expensive. Even the simple mail integration or bulk pricing is going to cost you. *A lot of old features Many things in Woo are outdated. The fact that there are not many competing solutions should not stop the Woo team and I believe that they will dedicate their work into simplifying the experience and make the whole e-commerce work smarter for a new customer.

Comments: Open source software offers the benefit of lower cost than most commercial software and a majority of websites are developed using WordPress, which is one of the most widely used open source content management systems. WooCommerce is consistently rated among the top shopping cart solutions for WordPress. As a professional web developer it is my "Go To" e-commerce solution for my customers who are using WordPress. You can have a great looking site done in a day.

Pros: Ease of installation, Huge number of add-on modules. Numerous payment gateways. Easy to integrate shipping. Ability to generate product feeds for Google Adwords, Amazon, and Bing shopping.

Cons: Many of the premium modules require annual subscriptions so you do need to be aware of the cost when comparing open source software to an off the shelf shopping cart solution. (a good developer will be able to help you determine what your costs will be before you get started).

Comments: I love WooCommerce and often recommend it, but that recommendation always comes with caveats about the unseen costs and troubles. It may seem like the best solution but it might not always be the best solution. It also integrates easily with Printful, which is always a plus for me.

Pros: WooComerce is my favorite WP shop so far. The basic plug in offers almost everything most shops needs to get up and running and it offers enough free upgrades to make your shop feel pretty complete.

Cons: The biggest con for WooCommerce is that getting anything above the basics can be costly and means you need to be ready to have a fairly hefty overhead if you want to build out anything past the basics as most advanced packages have recurring costs in the hundreds of dollars annually. The other draw back (for any wp, self hosted shop) is that you have to make sure you have your wp secure, maintained and compliant if you are going to be running a shop of any size. Payment Gateways help but since the cart is hosted on your site you should be sure to set yourself up properly, which can again lead to some unexpected costs and headaches you may have been hoping to avoid by hosting your own wp-shop.

Pros: WooCommerce is pretty much the defacto standard for E-Commerce if you are using Wordpress for your CMS (Content Management System). WooCommerce is owned by Automattic which is the parent company of Wordpress so there is no danger of your E-Commerce provider ever shutting down.The code for the plugin will always be improved and patched for security exploits. There are Thousands of add on plugins for WooCommerce, if you need a certain functionality for your shopping cart or online catalog there is almost certainly a plugin to provide that functionality. In the rare case you couldn't find the perfect plugin there is an abundance of very proficient woo commerce programmers that custom code your solution.

Cons: I'd love to see more value in the core WooCommerce product. ie more free/complimentary features and better prices on bundles of popular/most useful add-ons. It seems like every time I want to add a feature to WooCommerce it requires another subscription or add-on payment which can easily add up to hundreds/thousands of dollars a year which cuts into profit margins.

Comments: I've been using WooCommerce for many years and it's always my go-to software for any project eCommerce related.

Pros: - It's FREE - Insanely powerful - can be used for a little shop or a massive store with 100's of products - Integrates with almost any software you can think off - Highly customizable - The WooCommerce community is huge and help is just a quick Google search away

Cons: - It's difficult to give a con for WooCommerce but if I had to I would say that for an absolute beginner, it can be a bit difficult to use and to get used to but that difficulty disappears quickly after using it for a little while.

Hands down the easiest shopping plugin around.

Pros: I left Weebly because the Ecommerce options were getting out of control price-wise. I needed something simple, affordable, and easy to maintain. WooCommerce hit all those buttons. I was able to get my author store up and running fairly quickly, the options are easy to understand. It's built from the ground up to be effective for all users and easy to hop right into as a newbie. There are tons of add-ons for it, anything you need, you can likely find already custom made.

Cons: For most customizations, you're looking at an extra cost. It's not easy to do the simplest things, like change the colors of the cart and checkout pages to match your site colors, or to edit those pages to add your own buttons or remove some of their default text, for example. The search functions aren't intuitive, you have to create custom filters per category or it shows all categories no matter what category you pick to show. These things were very frustrating for me as a new user, and almost made me walk away before I took a break and came back with a fresh state of mind to tackle it. While the bulk of WooCommerce is easy to set up and operate, some simple things like these seem so much harder than they should be.

Pros: So many plugins that makes the end-user and administrator happy. You can get complete analytics for sales, abandoned carts, and integrate custom email campaigns with Woocommerce. Set up is easy with a low learning curve as when you first install the plugin it immediately shoots you into a quick start setup. There are tons of tutorials online that make Woocommerce more efficient as well as resolving issues a snap.

Cons: Depending on your hosting resource limits adding Woocommerce can slow down the performance of your website.

Pros: WooCommerce is an excellent and full featured "free" mature online store plugin for Wordpress. While, out of the box, there are many features that are lacking, it is fairly easy to find whatever add ons you feel are necessary for your store. While the plugin is free, for a custom store experience, you will need to purchase some, or a bunch of, additional plugins. I consider this a positive as you can customize your store and shopping experience to your heart's desire.

Cons: WooCommerce, now owned by the same company as Wordpress, seems more interested in creating paid extensions than beefing up their main program. Their free theme "Storefront" is adequate, but for the best custom experience of website and store, I would recommend BeaverBuilder and Beaver Themer. Between the two they will allow you to fully customize your Wordpress site and store.

Overall: It was excellent working with this software.

Pros: Woocommerce is easily the best tool for building a self hosted webstore. It's basis on wordpress allows for a great and easily accessible API, so you can quickly integrate it into your own apps. The system includes so many payment gateway integrations and addons for ticket sales, downloads and anything else you may need.

Cons: Woocommerce is not great if you require Physical point of sale, but this is trying to use a solution for a problem it wasn't intended for.

Pros: There are many points to be honest. First thing is it is simple, easy to maintain and cheap. Most of the templates are free of cost and you need not much to invest in plugins also as most of the plugins are either free or if chargeable cost is affordable. As a support, lots of tutorials are available to understand if facing any problem. Structure too is very simple.

Cons: Biggest problem or threat with this software is its security. As plugins are available and some of them are not verified so websites seems to be hacked easily compare to other softwares.

Overall: Overall experience is good as the clients who need quick solutions, woocommerce helps us in same. Its cost is also affordable for those who does not want to invest much or those who are just entering into digital world

Pros: Woo Commerce is very easily deployed to a Wordpress site. It's excellent for tracking sales and inventories and syncs up well with our shipping/label printing solution. The store looks very nice, too. For the shopper, it's simple, clean and intuitive.

Cons: Very difficult to figure out how to add more complex products such as items with multiple sizes and colors. Within products there are attributes and variations, and although I searched for tutorials and documentation, I couldn't figure out how to properly set these parameters without the help of an experienced Woo Commerce user.

Overall: I'm an experienced Wordpress and website designer, but this was my first time ever to set up an ecommerce site. So perhaps the complexity and difficulty I experienced was just a lack of my ecommerce experience. Now that I do understand how to set items up in the store, I love how Woo works.

Pros: Wordpress is our go-to platform for websites so we are always more apt to use WooCommerce for ecom clients. It's open source so there are plenty of upgrades and add-ons in the plugin directory of wordpress and the support is really responsive. There's a ton of info on the web about it anyway so it's not hard to learn. I like that it's fully customizable, we have control over every page, the checkout, the confirmation, all of it (as opposed to Shopify where they control the checkout themselves and you just get to style pages). Easy to manage orders, customer lists, and inventory too.

Cons: The only real downside is that it's fairly robust so newbies or non-developer users will have a bit more of a hill to climb to learn and use the tool, but that's the price you pay for complete control and customization. of course with Wordpress, you have to keep it updated regularly or risk it breaking or posing a security risk.

Pros: I love WooCommerce. There is a small learning curve to set up and work how you want your items displayed, but it's well worth the extra effort to have a fully custom eCommerce store that it tailored to your brand. There are plenty of options to choose from that are prepacked into the plugin and there are plenty of more ad-ons (additional plugins) to make the eCommerce work to you liking.

Cons: For busy people, WooCommerce may seem to cumbersome and tedious to tinker with, but that is easily overcome with a few videos and taking some time to get to know the plugin.

Cons: I don't like how wooCommerce effects my entire site sometimes! When I loaded the plugin on my website I tried to use it and it would alter other plugins on the page it was loaded on. It's not the easiest thing to figure out if you're a first-time user. I would get help for best outcomes (ease of use is low, for me). Best features are in the paid portion.

Pros: woocommerce is the best e-commerce plugin I have used so far. It has a very few easy steps to set things up and after that you are good to go. you just need to put all your details. It has options of calculating shipping amount instantly. you can also choose have various payment methods.

Cons: although the basic version of woocommerce plugin is free to use but in order to do certain things you need to buy add-ons which can be very costly for small businesses.

Comments: WooCommerce is a plugin for WordPress, and it cannot be run with out WordPress.

Pros: Free to download and install for Word-Press based e-commerce sites. No monthly fees. Also able to customize with themes and extensions. The more advanced themes / extensions cost . Able to integrate with PayPal, which is easier than setting up a merchant account. Additional payment gateways are available as extensions.

Cons: Your will still have to create your e-commerce store, and purchase a domain name / web hosting / etc. The extension costs can add up. WooThemes work best with WooCommerce. Customer support can be slow.

Comments: We recently launched an ecommerce site using Woo and have been very pleased. The software is widely used so almost any problem/question you come across can be easily found through a quick search. Because of it's open source nature there is a solution for almost any need that can be easily integrated.

Pros: Open source Intuitive and clean interface Solutions for most any need Large database of tutorials / information Free base package

Cons: Plugins / added functionality can be expensive when all added together Support is limited and slow Self hosted so it can be buggy and require troubleshooting

Pros: I started using woo commerce a few months back because I wanted to sell tickets for events. I did not want something complicated as I'm not tech savvy. After watching a few tutorials I learnt how to use and customize the plugin along with another free events management plugin that I found on the word press depository.

Cons: For freeware this plugin does a lot and I can recommend it to anyone who wants to start their own online store.

Pros: The plans are cheaper than most e-commerce places. If your familiar with word press you might like using woocommerce

Cons: There are better platforms out there. I didn't have good experiences with woo commerce. The plugins are horrible 3rd party apps. Customer support was hard to reach. The overall design of the platform is old and outdated. The setting is hard to find and order management is horrible. Product input is just cluttered with useless things wanting you to buy this and that to make your product pop. Variation is a nightmare having to add variations one by one.

Pros: I have been using WooCommerce for the past 2 years, I found it really easy to use. And it's free. Plus it has many extension plugins, also can be integrated with so many payment gateways.

Cons: I don't find anything bad with WooCommerce, although it is not as easy to set up as Shopify, it comes for free.

Comments: I switched over to WooCommerce from Shopify bc Shopify is a closed system that does not allow you to do many things. At this point I'm not sure if I made the right decision because of how many more problems come with using an open-source software VS the hosted and super simple Shopify. If you're a coder and want custom functionality, then Woocommerce might be for you. Otherwise using Shopify is a no-brainer.

Pros: - Open-source and customizable - Free

Cons: - Requires a lot of work to setup - Things break when you do updates - Self-hosted (could be a pro...)

Pros: WooCommerce is an excellent tool with advanced features for handing large online stores. Also, it has amazing designs and functionalities that makes you online store an intuitive place for users to buy your product/ service.

Cons: One has to pay additionally for the add-ons or customizations however they are professionally made and are most of the times worth the amount spend.

Pros: The abundance of plugins gives you a solution for almost any problem out there. Easy to use and implement.

Cons: The downside is support. Sometimes plugins cause problems and then nobody is there to help. Product variations are an issue for us, since custom attributes cannot be used on variation level.

Pros: Fantastic out of the box functionality and plugins available for almost anything you can put your mind to. Allows for small installations as well as growing sites.

Cons: Negatives are small on these themes as you can normally find an extension to add any missing functionality. It works best if you know what these requirements are at the outset though so you can see what the total cost is as it is very easy to keep increasing budget with continual small additions.

Comments: Easy to use and straight-forward. Would recommend.

Pros: Very easy plugins for WordPress sites. Straight-forward and user friendly. Easy to add products, add pictures, set coupon codes, cross sell items.

Cons: A bit clunky in it's appearance on certain websites, especially with the "buttons". Seems to conflict with certain WP themes and had issues with the checkout and using the Square plugin as opposed to the default, Stripe, for payment processing.
