Woocommerce and Fulfillment Companies
Many online businesses that cater to the sale of goods to consumers rely on the WordPress platform in order to construct websites with the desired functionality of a fully evolved store, due to the sheer volume and diversity of the plugins that are available. For those who are unaware, WordPress itself is expanded as far as functionality through the use of plugins which provide different aspects of the process. Use of the WordPress platform allows a business owner to design a good looking website that can have the functionality of a shopping cart added through a simple upload of a plugin and configuration of the aspects necessary. The ease of the system is further supported by the lucrative market for designers to create new plugins and themes for sale which will provide the functionality that is desired, thus allowing ecommerce site owners to choose from many different variations of plugins and therefore get exactly what they need. The volume of the marketplace creates more plugins for use, and Woocommerce is one of the most popular.
The Woocommerce shopping cart is a free plugin that works inside of WordPress to give customers the ability to shop for items through a website. They are able to go through the process of shopping by choosing items, placing them in a cart and checking out. The plugins that are associated with Woocommerce itself allow for many expanded aspects like choosing shipping options, delivery times and so forth. One of the aspects of the process that cannot be effectively automated by Woocommerce, WordPress or any other ecommerce system is the actual picking and packing of that item which has been purchased.
