WooCommerce is a plugin for WordPress that adds shopping cart and eCommerce functionality to your website. This includes the ability to display products on your website as well as giving your website a checkout and other online store management features. You can sell physical products, digital products, and subscription-based products with WooCommerce. The main WordPress plug-in is free and it comes with a range of features as standard. There are also hundreds of add-ons available for WooCommerce to enhance its functionality and give your eCommerce store additional features. In addition, the platform is open source so developers can adapt it where necessary. According to WooCommerce, more than 28 percent of the world's online stores use its platform.
WooCommerce says it is "localization ready". Two of the main ways to offer your WooCommerce-based online store in another language is to use a theme that supports multiple languages or use a WordPress plugin. WooCommerce will also automatically calculate sales tax rates in "major countries". In addition, there is a range of currency options available in WooCommerce, although you must set one as the default currency. It is also possible to use plug-ins that display prices to your website visitors in their local currency, but the transaction will be in your default currency. If the currency you need is not included in the main list from WooCommerce, you can edit the plug-in’s files to add a custom currency. Or, you can use a plug-in or a WooCommerce extension.
WooCommerce is the most widely used shopping cart and eCommerce platform in the world. It is used by major brands with thousands of products, small businesses offering one or two products, and everything between.
