We design our e-commerce websites using the WordPress CMS and WooCommerce Plugin. Why? WordPress and WooCommerce have proven to be an extremely stable e-commerce platform when used in conjunction with each other.
Your site will be hosted on a VPS and not on a shared server with hundreds of other sites. Why is that important? Shopping cart abandonment increases as website download speeds increase. CPU and memory loads are minimized resulting in improved visitor shopping.
In addition, there are literally thousands of plugins available for WordPress and plenty of WooCommerce extensions to enhance the functionality of your online shop. Some are free while others typically cost less than $200.00.
