When starting an E-Commerce website project for any business you want to consider every angle before jumping in. This is also true of a non-e-commerce website project, but when we are talking about possibly thousands of products – you really want to get it right the first time!
There are a slew of hosted shopping cart providers (or online store builders) out there – namely Volusion, Shopify, BigCommerce, etc. At Webn8 we have worked with all of these providers – and they can be good options depending on who the client is, but one option that doesn’t get much press is using WordPress for E-Commerce. WordPress was not developed for E-Commerce but with some tweaking, it can actually work quite well for that purpose! There are many WordPress plugins available that together, can create a highly functioning online store. And, for those who already have a WordPress website and want to start selling items on their site, it can be an easy transition without losing all the work that has gone into development of the original website.
Of course, you have all the great functionality that WordPress offers, and my personal favorite thing about WordPress is that they are constantly improving it. With constant updates and improvements, security and bug fixes, you can rest assured that your website will continue to run smoothly in the future. So, yes, WordPress can work quite well for E-Commerce! Consult with us to see if WordPress E-Commerce is right for your business!
