The WordPress platform is being used for many things, from blogging to business websites to portfolio sites and more.
Even famous brands, celebrities and companies power their online presences with WordPress.
However, one area where the platform also excels but that we don’t talk about that often is ecommerce–WordPress can easily be used to power online shops and there are several high-quality solutions to do so.
The most well-known and by far most popular WordPress ecommerce solution is WooCommerce.
Not only does the plugin have a 4.5 star rating at more than a million active installs, it also made waves in May last year when Automattic acquired WooCommerce’s parent company WooThemes.
The acquisition was definitely a good move. Back then WooCommerce already powered 30 percent of all online shops and was an overall clear favorite in the WordPress community.
