Wordprocess for E-Commerce
I recently shared the podium with this e-commerce professional whom I greatly admire. Just had written my Shopify rating and was curious about his favorite e-commerce site. It was quite loud when he announced that "the only thing that makes WordPress unattractive for e-commerce is that there is no one who sells it heavily.
" Let's discuss the use of WordPress for e-commerce. WordPress is WordPress, which is the main purpose of using WordPress. WordPress has 60 million installedations. WordPress supports one in six of all websites in the top millions of websites due to visitor numbers. Over 50% of all websites that use a CMS, in the top millions of websites by site visit, are supported by WordPress.
The WordPress is totally free, open code and is created entirely by voluntary people. Simply integrate theming and plug-ins to change the look of the frontend and the functions of the frontend. The majority of web hosters allow one-click WordPress installations with third-party scripts like Fantastico. With the right add-ons, i.e. topics and plug-ins, WordPress can be a rugged e-commerce trading system.
Over and above the advantages mentioned above, there are some strengths that speak for WordPress as a technology that can be used for e-commerce. WordPress has an incredibly large number of topics available. Just a small part of these topics is suited for e-commerce, but that still leave a lot of room for you.
Wordprocessor topics are edited, and this open code paradigm allows you to customize them at will. If someone says that there is a WordPress plug-in for any kind of feature you desire, it exaggerates them, but not much. Due to the large distribution there are a large number of free WordPress plug-ins available to extend WordPress with new features.
Hint: The term "plugin" is only a part of the technical slang around WordPress. Such plug-ins are not to be distinguished from "apps" that other e-commerce plattforms speak of, e.g. Shopify apps. Perhaps its most popular feature is the demise of WordPress. Due to the large amount of software available, WordPress is under constant threat from various types of hacking outbreaks.
Particularly with e-commerce websites, safety is a basic demand. As your e-commerce store expands and you need to handle a large number of orders, the number of simultaneous WordPress executions can overload many webshops. Since you need to have one design and several plug-ins added for WordPress to work well for e-commerce, there may be a difficulty when you upgrade your WordPress install.
The design you have already set up and your plug-ins may not be WordPress upgradable. WordPress, its topics and plug-ins need to be constantly updated. Some of the adjustments you may make will therefore be overridden with each upgrading. In fact, WordPress was not designed as an e-commerce solution.
Because of its reputation as a popular blogsite, blog designers have overlayed the base application with serious topics and plug-ins to make it work for e-commerce. I have always been a fan of WordPress, however, for its fast progress. There is no question in my mind that it will also be better as an e-commerce trading system.
