The Benefits of Custom WooCommerce Development

You and your company work hard to leverage your strategic advantages… shouldn’t your eCommerce solution be aligned to do the same?

There are many choices in the ever changing landscape of eCommerce solutions. But if your business requires a flexible online storefront that can be customized for your specific needs, then there is one clear standout: WooCommerce.

WooCommerce is a free, highly scalable eCommerce solution that is cost-effective, flexible, and powerful enough to meet even the most demanding eCommerce needs. But how does it compare to other platforms?

WooCommerce vs. Shopify and Others

According to Forbes Advisor in a April 2024 article:

“WooCommerce and Shopify are two of the most popular eCommerce platforms available today. Between the two, there are an estimated 5 million-plus users who’ve earned billions of dollars, globally.”

While both platforms are effective eCommerce solutions, the differences are rather pronounced. One way to think of it is by using the analogy of Ikea furniture vs. custom interiors curated by an interior designer.

On one hand, the Ikea solution (i.e. Shopify, Wix, Etsy and others) is a great fit for those looking for a simple, functional solution, and don’t mind that their store is going to look, and behave, very much like every other store on the platform. If selling your products online is your sole consideration, then these platforms offer an easy, turnkey way of doing just that.

With a hosted solution, there’s still plenty of work for you to do in order to start taking online orders, but hosted platforms do their very best to make it easy for the average online store to get up and running. Of course, your store can only function in ways that the hosted platforms design for you – and, like in our Ikea analogy, you’ve got to unpack, and build out, your digital storefront in order for it to work.

With a bespoke solution (i.e. WooCommerce), by its very definition, it is curated specifically for your unique business needs. Incorporating your unique logic, customizing layouts, syncing with your ERP and other back-office solutions is the job of your “designer,” who can guide you through the myriad of options and deliver an ideal solution that is uniquely yours. The upfront costs can be higher, but WooCommerce is vastly more flexible, and you have full control over how it functions.
