WooCommerce turns a WordPress website into an online shop. In terms of both features and ease of use, it is very similar to Shopify, but Shopify is a little faster to set up.

We like to use WooCommerce with WordPress for some sites because it lets us have so much freedom in designing the layout, look and feel. WooCommerce is a very mature platform, and has a whole host of add-ons.

Because it is so popular, many shop retail order systems will integrate with WooCommerce, so if you sell something online or in the shop, your stock levels will stay synchronised and you won’t have to worry about selling an item online that has just been sold in the high street store.
