WHY CHOOSE A WOOCOMMERCE WEBSITE?
WooCommerce is now the most popular e-commerce platform on the web. As a powerful online store builder, it comes with everything you need to run a successfully low cost e-commerce business. Whether you are a new business or an established one, you will soon realize how simple it is to sell products online with WooCommerce. Additionally, there are no associated monthly costs like Shopify etc. Operating a business can get expensive, so it is always nice when something is free of charge.
WOOCOMMERCE IS A MODULE DEVELOPED SOLELY FOR THE WORDPRESS CMS
Integrating a WooCommerce design with WordPress gives you all the benefits of the most widely used CMS on the planet. Pearl White Media Inc has worked on all major ecommerce platforms and we are happy to say we have chosen WooCommerce as our go to-system. The WordPress CMS is extremely popular and supports over 51% of the top million websites currently online.
COMPLETE CONTROL OF YOUR ONLINE STORE FROM ANYWHERE
Our main goal is to give you complete control over your E-commerce website without having to contact your web designer or developer every time you’d like to make an update. The CMS is simple, easy and does not require any programming or technical knowledge to work with. Our WooCommerce designer will develop customizations and designs based on your specific products to create a consistent brand across all pages and elements of your online store. You will also be provided with the services of an SEO consultant to ensure your website is visible in search engines and capable of reaching more potential customers.
WooCommerce Web Design Benefits
The great thing about WooCommerce and WordPress is that they are regularly updated, relieving you of worries about security issues for your customers. Audited by industry leaders, WooCommerce observes WordPress best practices and coding standards – keeping it secure and up-to-date. Customers rely on you to ensure the security and privacy of their information and a custom developed WooCommerce store does just that.
WooCommerce offers a lot of flexibility. Products can be setup to sell as virtual, physical or even downloadable items. Need a color palette for your product options? No problem. Products can be categorized, given sale prices, independent attributes, and much more. Once our WooCommerce developers get your online store up and running, you can manage it all yourself without learning about the technical side of things.
MARKETING & PROMOTION
Marketing and promoting your products is essential for growing your business. Test cases have shown over a 150% increase in revenue when using WooCommerce and WordPress promotional tools. WooCommerce has a built-in system that allows you to generate and create any type of sale or promotion for your online store at any given time. Just click to create a discount, share with your customers and watch your numbers soar. It’s as simple as that. After all, people do love sales.
An online e-commerce store must offer secure and efficient payments to their customers. WooCommerce comes bundled with various payment options like PayPal (for accepting credit card and PayPal account payments), Stripe, BACS, and cash on delivery. An e-commerce website developed with WooCommerce will use Https (SSL) secured technology to ensure that all transmitted data is safe and protected.
TAX & SHIPPING OPTIONS
Any business, whether online or brick-and-mortar, needs to have an efficient system to calculate taxes and shipping costs. Customers will definitely thank you for it and so will your sales team. When you get a WooCommerce website, you can display taxes already incorporated into your prices. You also get several options for creating and configuring shipping classes as well as tax classes and local tax rates.
EASY & SIMPLE CHECKOUT
E-commerce stores using WooCommerce feature a One Page Checkout giving your customers a user-friendly checkout experience. One of the major causes for cart abandonment is complicated checkout processes. Customers just want to add items to their cart, add their desired payment option and then pay. When you complicate the process, they just move elsewhere. Make it easy for customers to navigate your online store and they will come back!
CUSTOMER “MY ACCOUNT”
Nothing is as frustrating to an online customer as a clunky and complicated account history. If customers have to spend an hour just to figure out where they can see their past orders, you can be sure they won’t shop at your store again. With a WooCommerce store, your customers get access to an efficient and simple account management page where they can see past orders, update their shipping address and other information.
WooCommerce gives you all the statistics you need on your online store’s performance, providing any type of report you require. The platform includes detailed order tracking and customer engagement tools, which allow your customers to look at their past orders and get updates of their delivery statuses. Your sales team can keep an eye on details like cart abandonment, which pages are receiving more customers or which geographical locations are performing well.
Customers want to know how you will ship their order, what methods you offer and how you are calculating shipping rates. A WooCommerce online store gives you the ability to configure different types of shipping methods for your website, anything from flat rate, table rate to using their built-in shipping calculators. To succeed as an e-commerce store the key things are efficiency and professionalism. A custom developed WooCommerce website offers your customers a whole lot more.
Your WooCommerce website will have support for geo-location allowing you to detect where your customers are coming from. This can be especially useful when using the tax calculation or shipping calculation options. You can select if your WooCommerce store uses your store’s address or uses geo-location to detect your customer’s address for custom tax calculations.
KEEP TRACK OF YOUR STOCK
An unorganized online store can be a nightmare – items keep getting lost, shipments are delayed or sales managers are always trying to locate new products. With an e-commerce store developed on the WooCommerce and WordPress platforms, you can easily manage your digital or physical products from the back-end with the click of a button. A properly organized and manageable inventory can go a long way in helping your business succeed.
Because WooCommerce is built on PHP and has an open development community, almost anything is possible. It has thousands of plugins that allow businesses to expand in almost any direction. For example, there will be less need to hire someone for SEO consulting every time you update a product because a plugin can handle it for you. Your management team will be a lot more efficient with the added functionality of your online store.
