Why Is WordPress A Suitable For An E-commerce Site?

July 18th, 2018

That day is not far when you can buy an elephant online. The pace at which the e-commerce business is rising is like a creeper in today’s market.

Running an e-commerce site is not child’s play. You hold the responsibility of the login and payment details of millions of users. Thus, its security lies in your hands. So, to design and develop your e-commerce website, you need trusted software that is safe & secure and works seamlessly. What other than WordPress can be a perfect match for what you desire?

With the rising competition, the war of uniqueness is also shooting up. To win the war, many of the e-commerce businesses are settling with WordPress. The reason? Is WordPress a perfect fit for an e-commerce site? Will it be safe? Keep reading to find the answers to all your questions.

By now, we all know that WordPress is not just a blogging platform and has many hidden abilities. No, it doesn’t have any specifically designed e-commerce functionalities. But its customization and other features like themes and plugins make it eligible for an e-commerce site. One such popular plugin is “WooCommerce” - an e-commerce extension of WordPress that is powering 25% of all the websites worldwide. It can handle all essential functionalities needed to sell online – the storefront, payment gateway, shipping, inventory management, automatic transactional emails, and more. Moreover, it has more plugins in itself, by which you can extend the functionalities of WooCommerce even more.

Still not convinced? Need more reasons? Here are they: -

  • It’s free

  • You get a pool of options to choose from the ever-growing number of themes

  • Allows you to add unlimited products and product attributes

  • It’s super-responsive and gets upgraded constantly

  • It stays in your control. You can customize it the way you want

  • Easy to install and use, you need not any coding skill for that

  • User reviews and rating sections. That means that you can give your customers the option to rate your products

  • It comes with security plugins as well


The abilities of WordPress have been underestimated a lot by considering it as a blogging platform. But now, the time has changed. Many e-commerce sites are being developed in WordPress, and they are doing exceptionally fine. The add-on benefit of making your e-commerce site on WordPress is that you can customize it with other pages like blog, portfolio, etc. WordPress not only fits well in your budget (if you go for paid things in WordPress), you also get the free and premium services along with it.
