Use WordPress for eCommerce Portals

Jun 29, 2015

There are many reasons why WordPress is so widely used :

It’s easy to use.

It’s super simple to customize the appearance of a website

Best of all, WordPress is absolutely FREE to use.

With so many perks, it’s easy to see why WordPress is so popular. But the question is this: Is it a good system for an e-commerce website?

Absolutely! It’s not just for blogs anymore and some strong features for e-commerce.

Reason To Use WordPress for E-Commerce?

Plugins boost functionality: WordPress offers a great variety of plugins, including e-commerce plugins, which allow you to customize the functionality of your online store. E-commerce plugins such as WooCommerce offer great features, including complex shipping options, sales and inventory charts, credit/debit payment integration, customer reviews, follow-up emails and much more.

Themes for beauty and function: There are hundreds of themes available with added features. This is helpful for web designers, because they can customize websites with these features already built in. A theme is a great starting point for most WordPress web designers.

Compares well against others: WordPress also stands up against other e-commerce options like Magento, Opencart, Prestashop or Shopify. Some, like Magento, must be built from scratch, while others (Shopify, for example) are much more limited in themes and plugins.
