What You Need to Know Before Adding WooCommerce to Your Website

Wordpress

Not sure if you should add WooCommerce with WordPress? Here's what you need to know before you make a decision.

So, you’ve been thinking about adding ecommerce to your WordPress website. 🤔 But you have a lot of questions, like exactly how much is this going to cost and how difficult is it set up? Setting up WooCommerce with WordPress is probably not as scary as it sounds. In fact, you can begin uploading products and resources at zero dollars, and you have complete control over your products. 

Sound too good to be true? Let’s talk about everything you need to know about using WooCommerce with WordPress.

#1 Your Theme Matters

That super cute theme you chose for your site? It may not work with WooCommerce. While most themes are compatible with WooCommerce, you want to double check before moving forward.

Compatibility matters because in order to use WooCommerce with WordPress, you need certain functionalities, such as shopping, checking out, and delivering the product. Unfortunately, not every theme allows for that.

#2 You Set the Sales

How amazing does it sound to create your own coupons?! When using WooCommerce with WordPress, you can throw sales at any time and create coupons. You can send these coupons to certain buyers, reward frequent shoppers, and give discounts during particular times of the year.

#3 You’re in Charge of Marketing and SEO

This is where WooCommerce with WordPress can come with a slight disadvantage. When you host your products on a marketplace like Etsy and TPT, people find you through their search feature. Those marketplaces also promote their website, establish trust, and earn their own followings.

When you step off those platforms, you have to put in the work to do those things! That doesn’t mean it’s impossible to earn sales, but you do need to effectively categorize your products, establish SEO, and direct traffic to your site.

#4 Limited Upfront Costs

Setting up WooCommerce with WordPress is actually pretty affordable, considering it’s free 😉 Instead of paying to have WooCommerce on your site, you pay payment processing fees (similar to PayPal and Stripe).

The fees associated with WooCommerce come mostly from plugins you decide to use with your ecommerce store and anyone you hire (like me!) to help you set up your store.

#5 Set Up is Quick

Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t take weeks or months to get your ecommerce store up and running. In fact, you can have a fully functioning store within a week, if not sooner! Of course, it helps you have a bit of guidance! 

Which is why I created the WooCommerce Jumpstart Guide. This step-by-step guide will walk you through every part of setting up your store so you don’t have to fumble through it (or spend hours watching YouTube videos).

#6 Plugins Make for Endless Customization 

There are tons of free and paid plugins that can enhance your shop in about every way imaginable. With these plugins, you can completely customize the experience for your buyer, from the delivery of products to the emails sent to buyers to a customized sidebar.
