    Pros
    The best part for me is that woocommerce is free providing an excellent e-commerce environment for fresh users containing a variety of different features.
    I can only recommend WooCommerce as the simplest and the best solution that saves you thousands of dollars in development.
    All in all, it is the single best shopping solution for Wordpress. I used it on a few websites that I made and I loved it mainly because it was very easy and quick to set up.
    Cons
    However, I can see if folks are not inclined to be DIY about this they might be annoyed with the lack of documentation WITHIN Wordpress.
    My overall experience was extremely frustrating and disappointing.
    A bit limited in functionality and if you need additional plugins it can end up being quite costly and complex to mantain updates.

    Best and most widely used WordPress E-Commerce Plugin

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I am really happy with overall experience of using Woo Commerce for online E Commerce store. Free version fulfills most of small startup business requirements.Only hosting domain and other charges are needed to setup your own Business or online store website.Configuration is effortless but may be confusing for a total non tech newbie who use shopify only.Nonetheless after some practice it becomes a piece of cake.It is a much secure platform with helpful plugins to for add-on functionality.I would really recommend it for online E-Commerce store specially which are already running on WordPress CMS.

    Pros

    First of all it is plugin in word press environment which makes it m first and only choice as the best for making e-commerce functionality website.It has all the functions to run an online store easily with out much technical knowledge.Various plugin supplement and extend the Woo Commerce functionalities even further beyond.Payment processing and order management is handled efficiently and effectively.Too many functionalities like bulk upload,shipping management, contact info, payment management and etc make life easier to much extent like designing forms, creating custom checkout field , shop page custom price filter and minimum or max product quantities...etc.

    Cons

    Not much user friendly like shopify and other competitor.Still just little practice needed to learn it.Its related add-on plugins can be expensive.I had not faced any major technical issue using it.

    Inexpensive alternative to Shopify if you want a store + content

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Very positive as it allowed us to launch our store in less than a day.

    Pros

    Our clients store was built around SEO and creating high quality reviews / blogs was an important requirement. Therefore, WooCommerce was a great alternative to Shopify due to the blogging management being much simpler on WooCommerce, and knowing Woocommerce is based on wordpress it was a no brainer. Combined, with the ability to customize it with plugins made it the best solution for us.

    Cons

    Learning curve is a little steep. Additionally, if you want a custom theme it might take some time to set up the store to your exact requirements.

    Good and bad experiences with Woocommerce.

    Reviewed a year ago

    It’s been ok and got us to where we need to be. We are thinking of switching away in the future mainly due to inventory management not being great, and very time consuming.

    Pros

    It’s easy to set up, simple to customise layout and overall look of the website. Very inexpensive compared to the majority of competition.

    Cons

    Slow and sluggish at times. A long and drawn out process to add new products with multiple sizes. No matter how high our security is, we have still been hacked twice.

    A great alternative to Shopify

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    I've been working with this system for years now, and i learnt how to develop new functions, work with its hooks, customize everything. So, for me, it would be difficult to switch to another product right now. It integrates perfectly with wordpress and use same mechanisms, so i find working with it very compfortable.

    Pros

    That is free, is open source and have a lot of integrations.

    Cons

    Out of the box, according to me, misses some important features that should have been standard.
