  • Woo Commerce changed its pricing structure recently (August 2013). Keeping a typical Woo-based store with, say, 10 extensions and plug-ins running will now cost you $1000+ to keep up-to-date. That’s per website, per year! Calculate your needs and costs carefully before you commit to this platform.

    Keeping a typical Woo-based store with, say, 10 extensions

    Who says that’s typical? Nobody is forcing you to use extensions. Indeed WooCommerce can be used on it’s own with a default WordPress theme (or a free WooTheme) to run a successful store for nothing (minus cost of hosting / domain obviously).

    If you’re running a serious online business then a few hundred dollars a year should not be significant. The benefit of that is that you know that WooThemes (developers of the WooCommerce plugin) will be around to support you and continue development for years to come.

    We appreciate our business model is not for everyone, but that is the beauty of the WordPress community, there’s always another plugin to try 🙂
