WooCommerce is the most popular WordPress store creation plugin and also one of the most used ways to create an e-commerce site worldwide. With this fantastic plugin, it is possible to create a complete online store and sell your products on the internet through a very intuitive and easy to manage the environment.

 

Starting a virtual business and being able to sell your products is the dream of many, but numerous challenges can arise and compromise the experience of creating a successful business on the internet. At first glance, it may seem very complicated to set up a virtual store, but it is important not to give up.

 

What is an E-commerce site?

 

E-commerce is an abbreviation in English for Electronic Commerce, or as we call it, Electronic Commerce. And it refers to any type of commerce that uses electronic devices and platforms, such as computers and cell phones, to market products or services.

 

If you have purchased anything over the internet, then you must have heard something about e-commerce. In this context, the internet provides really incredible feats, facilitating people's daily lives and connecting them to the whole world.

 

Currently, we can do everything on the internet, like talking to a friend who lives on the other side of the world or buying a birthday present for a family member. It is in this aspect that virtual commerce is gaining strength. With each passing day, many people are opting for new opportunities, and creating a virtual store is one of them.

 

Basically, we can define e-commerce as a virtual environment for the sale of products, where anyone can have a virtual store. This means that e-commerce is nothing more than an online platform, allowing any merchant to advertise and advertise products through a website or online store.

 

In other words, the user can create a virtual store, make products available, and manage their payments, all without leaving home. For a visitor to your online store, just click on the desired product, buy, and pay, without any headache. That sounds very interesting, doesn't it?

 

E-commerce is a virtual store similar to a physical store. In this way, e-commerce has products, and address (which is the domain), numerous payment options (such as credit card, debit card, etc.), and a space to track your deliveries. Given this, we can say that e-commerce acts as a facilitator in both parts, allowing you to advertise your products online, and at the same time, giving comfort to the customer of your virtual store.

 

What is WooCommerce?

 

WooCommerce is an open-source platform for e-commerce, developed for WordPress, and can be installed easily in the form of a plugin.

 

WooCommerce emerged in 2008 from the idea of ​​3 Automattic employees (the company responsible for WordPress) and today it has a multidisciplinary development team that includes developers, designers, and marketing, all to make WooCommerce even better.

And being the most popular platform in the world, the responsibility is enormous, it is not for nothing that it is audited by Sucuri, a company specialized in digital security and one of the most important in the industry.

 

It is worth noting that integration with WordPress is excellent, which makes it possible to create a complete website and a virtual store in the same environment, all in a simple and practical way with the same standard as WordPress.
