Why Choose WordPress?
WordPress powers nearly one-third of the world’s websites—from small personal blogs to the complex, multilingual sites of major corporations—because of its customizable, extensible, mobile-responsive, and SEO-friendly advantages. The layout, look, and feel can be endlessly customized. And because it’s free and open-sourced, it’s loved by countless third-party designers and developers around the world. Strong community support ensures that WordPress will always stay on the top of the latest technologies.
Benefits of Using WordPress to Power Your Website

Why Choose WooCommerce?
While WordPress supports a variety of e-commerce extensions, WooCommerce is the most popular because it is simple, secure, and powerful. WooCommerce allows businesses to sell any type of products or service online, whether physical or virtual. A WooCommerce store can be installed and open for business in a short amount of time and cost-effectively, compared to other e-commerce platforms.
Because it’s also open-sourced, it has incredible support from a large developer community. The support from this community includes but is not limited to informative analytics, payment gateways, shipping channels, marketing tools, and CRM & ERP integrations.

WordPress + WoodCommerce vs. Other E-Commerce Platforms
Build Your Own or Self-Hosted Platform
A “build your own” e-commerce system is typically built off of an open-source framework such as WooCommerce. You pay a developer or web design company to create a site for you, they charge you a design/development fee, and then when they’re done, you pay for a web server to host the site, along with minor maintenance fees. With a self-hosted system, the e-commerce software and database are 100% under your control.
Hosted E-Commerce Platform
Hosted E-Commerce Platforms: A hosted e-commerce system such as Shopify, BigCommerce, or Squarespace is powered by software you essentially lease from an e-commerce provider. In exchange for the use of their software, you pay a monthly fee that can range from $29 a month to $2,000 (or more). With a hosted e-commerce system, you have limited levels of control and customizability, but you also have reduced responsibilities.
