It just got a little easier for WordPress (or more precisely Woothemes) sites to connect with clients through WooCommerce – a plugin application with lots of great features and customisable themes – and turn their sites into easy to use e-commerce platforms.
WooCommerce is a great way for businesses to quickly and professionally build a professional online shopping site, without the technical know-how (and headaches) of traditional e-Commerce platforms.
“This has been in the works for quite a while and now we’re proud to officially launch WooCommerce,” said Adii Pienaar, co-founder and CEO of WooThemes. “We’ve spent the last 4 years building and selling themes. We’re one of the top theme providers and a trusted partner for millions. We have a lot to be thankful for. But we’re not resting. We’re taking everything we’ve learned along to the way, and are doubling down on WordPress, with a new application layer that tightly integrates with our themes and gives customers precisely the kind of end-to-end, holistic solution that they’ve been asking us for.”
“This is a big day for the whole team,” said Magnus Jepson, co-founder of WooThemes. “We’ve built a fast-growing business. Now, we want to turn great themes into great applications. If your business wants to sell more products or services online, WooCommerce is your first stop.”
South African users have the option to quickly and easily integrate PayFast with their WooCommerce installation, allowing them to receive payments funded by credit card, Instant EFT and uKash.
