Hello, this is Mikel Bruce, CEO of Tiny Frog Technologies. I’d like to talk a little bit about e-commerce websites or having e-commerce on your website. There’s countless numbers of e-commerce applications that can be either built into a website or have your website linked from there to an e-commerce application. Probably the most common nowadays, the ones that you’re probably most familiar with are Magento, Shopify and WooCommerce.
We’re a WordPress company so we specifically and almost exclusively work with WooCommerce. One of the advantages of WooCommerce over Shopify or Magento – if you have a WordPress site is that WooCommerce is an app – a WordPress application – so it’s very easily fully integrated into a WordPress website. If you have a WordPress website, WooCommerce is a really good solution because the integration is much cleaner compared to Magento or Shopify. If you don’t have a WordPress site, it’s a whole different story but this is specifically if you have a WordPress site.
If you have a WordPress site and you’re looking at different e-commerce applications, I would definitely recommend WooCommerce. A couple of the other advantages and benefits of WooCommerce – one of which is that it’s relatively affordable for the most basic version and then it’s very expandable. There’s countless, what are called plugins or sub-applications, to WooCommerce so if you want to expand the functionality on your e-commerce site, you can do that either initially or over time with WooCommerce. It’s managed to the same dashboard as your WordPress site so you’re not having to log-in to multiple places. It’s fully integrated with the WordPress site.
Those are just a couple of the advantages with WooCommerce. If you have any questions on WooCommerce or e-commerce in general, please feel free to give us a call.
This is Mikel with Tiny Frog Technologies.
