WooCommerce is a plugin that works brilliantly with your WordPress website and chosen theme. The interface allows you to create a responsive framework for your website with little effort.

3. Simple reporting
Reporting is a real highlight of the platform and allows business owners to quickly track their performance through a range of graphs and statistical data generated from their website sales. You can track things such as stock levels, orders and customer details.

4. Free Base
Another great selling point of Woo Commerce is that at it's base level, it is in fact free. What this means is that businesses can get up and going with the base version with minimal cost. This way they can put their budget towards their website and plugins to extend their functionality, rather than on purchasing a licence.

5. User friendly Back end
As with WordPress, the back end of WooCommerce is really easy to learn and get up to speed with. It allows business owners to manage their website with ease, placing all of the vital information they need just a click away. We find training up and supporting our clients in WooCommerce a terrific solution.
