Choosing a perfect e-commerce platform to sell something can be quite tricky. It needs to be simple to use, flexible and most importantly inexpensive. Sellers should carry out a lot of research regarding several e-commerce platforms and see which platform best suits their desires.
WooCommerce is one of the platforms that are typically used for WordPress. For those people who are well acquainted with WordPress, WooCommerce is a great e-commerce platform. It is a flexible platform that is comparatively cheaper than the other e-commerce sites and does not include any transaction fee.
It is a great platform that has expandable options of including coupons, special sales, color pickers, subscription add-ons and a lot more. It is also seen as a great platform to with benefits that the seller may not find on Etsy or Facebook. A Facebook pixel can be included that can be used to track people who have visited certain pages and to whom certain ads can be targeted at.
Moreover, WooCommerce has several payment methods for the buyers. PayPal can be used and customers can also create their own shop through their commercial account. Additional plug-ins that works with WooCommerce include varktech pricing deals, which allows people to get special discounts under certain conditions. Other plug-ins includes product add-ons where buyers have additional options while choosing certain things and at the end of their purchase they have an additional payment.
Another important factor to consider while choosing the best e-commerce platform for selling products is to check the payment plan. It is preferable if sellers choose platforms that are affordable to them. It is better to check for opportunities to pay a monthly payment rather than paying a small percentage of the sale.
Moreover, sellers should check their stock size, it is important to know that while choosing a platform choose one that requires the seller to pay as small amount as possible thus saving them a lot of expenses. Many businesses may provide another method to pay for only a couple of products and not all of them.
Lastly, if sellers think they are confident in changing the e-commerce platform they choose to use, they should look for a platform that allows them to have a self-hosted version of the online store. Most e-commerce websites allow the sellers to change their store in regard to the environment.
