WooCommerce is a powerful, extendable eCommerce plugin that helps you sell anything. Beautifully.
Three years ago I managed a few websites that were built with WP eCommerce (Not to be confused with WooCommerce). It was a horrible mess, and you couldn't extend it easily and had to result to core hacks. Every update required a ton of fixes to anything custom, and maintenence was impossible.
After a lot of review and comparison of different e-commerce plugins, whether they were WordPress or not, WooCommerce really stood out. Their code is wonderful and very well documented. Everything is extendable. And it has pretty much every feature you need for a standard shopping cart built-in.
I've since upgraded all of the archaic WP e-Commerce websites with WooCommerce. Now these sites are incredibly stable, easier to work with, and very flexible.
I've been using WooCommerce for over two years, on about 20 different websites big and small.
WooCommerce is amazing.
Simply the best!
We have a robust site with over 2000 skus and we went from a joomla site that was so clunky and a pain to work with from the backend to the customer interface. We went to wordpress and looked at the store plugins and woocommerce had the best features. it has been very easy to work with. robust but simple to understand. I only have one drawback, if your able to, go with a woothemes template and this way you will get better support.
I love it!
Have been using WooCommerce for all my online stores. Easy to setup and configure payment gateway. Loved it!
Theme: Catch Responsive
You'd think Woocommerce would have this figured out by now. I've come across this problem with several different themes (Woocommerce compatible and not) and there's no real help in the Woocommerce Support forum or knowledge base. They do have instructions on setting your product image size (resolution) to match that of your theme—but there is no information or accommodation for changing the size of the product feature image as it displays on the single product page.
The css is set to width: 100% height: auto —which will work fine if you plan ahead and use images for products set to be the size you want them to show up as.
The confusion starts when your product image is much larger than what you want it to display at and you expect the plugin (or your theme) to resize it automatically —not to mention responsively.
So be forewarned, when you choose product image make sure the image's full size is the size you want it to display at on your product page. This goes for "Related Products" images also. You might expect these RP images to be a thumbnail size but they're not —they also get displayed at 100% full size. Maybe I missed this information in the store setup instructions but I don't remember seeing anything like it mentioned. You'd think a FAQ on the subject would be readily available but it's not. There's a ton of support requests all over the WP.org and WooCom forums without competent answers.
Seems like a better, more professional solution would be to build into the plugin the ability to adjust the displayed feature image size on the product page within the woocommerce admin panel.
As ubiquitously used as WooCom is, I'd expect better support (free support). That's the only peeve I have with the plugin, it is otherwise excellent in its function and features.
Not a bad plugin but limited functionality.
Just a very good webshop system for WordPress (if not the best)...
Also very good, how actively it's being developed and updated.
Beautiful, all in one!
WooCommerce is a solid foundation to build on, and has been the go-to for an e-commerce system for WordPress. A large community and many extensions are a big help.
