Whenever we at SGD design an ecommerce site for one of our clients, we know exactly where to turn in order to ensure that we achieve the best result possible: WooCommerce.
The vast majority of ecommerce sites will be built on Wordpress, the world’s favourite content management system (CMS). To achieve the functionality required for an ecommerce platform, so-called “plugins” are used – extra software that enhances the capabilities of the standard Wordpress platform.
WooCommerce is considered to be the defining ecommerce plugin for Wordpress sites. The plugin has gained huge popularity thanks to its versatility, scalability, and ease of use. At SGD, we consider WooCommerce to be a crucial tool that allows us to build the very best websites for our ecommerce clients.
In 2017, over 30% of all online stores were powered by WooCommerce – a particularly impressive number considering the high volume of competition the plugin faces.
However, while 30% is impressive, WooCommerce has also shown near-exponential potential for growth. As of 2018, WooCommerce enjoys a 42% market share, making it six times more popular than its closest competitors.
It is also worth considering the fact that the statistics above are based on all CMSs and site designs. When the stats for Wordpress plugins on websites are considered, the dominance is even more apparent; 94.3% of all Wordpress-based ecommerce sites use WooCommerce.
As we touched on above, there is a vast number of plugins that offer ecommerce capabilities – but WooCommerce has been able to claim a rather astounding market share regardless. Here’s an idea as to why it has been able to establish such dominance…
While many plugins offer similar capabilities to WooCommerce, no other plugin van provide the sheer scope and variety that WooCommerce affords. Essentially, if you have a specific feature or function you wish to include in your online store, WooCommerce is capable of delivering it.
For the reasons above, we at SGD consider WooCommerce to be our plugin of choice when designing ecommerce websites for our clients. We have found that the core functions of the plugin combine perfectly with our team’s knowledge and expertise in order to deliver incredible ecommerce sites, every time.
