In a short few years WooCommerce (brought to you by the superb, home-grown WooThemes) has grown into one of the biggest and most popular self-hosted eCommerce platforms out there.
We’re proud to be a sponsor of their Cape Town meetup event –keeping everyone fueled on pizza, beer and soft drinks— and we’ll also be hosting a panel titled “eCommerce in South Africa” with discussing the local trends with some of the Woo and industry heavyweights. Anyone with an interest in or questions about WordPress, eCommerce, WooCommerce and/or PayFast is encouraged to register and attend. The event is on Wednesday, February 25th in Woodstock, Cape Town. There are a very limited amount of seats available; you can register here.
WooCommerce is a very easy way to quickly and cost-effectively build an eCommerce store after you’ve purchased your domain and hosting. For a quick MVP, simply install WordPress (free), install WooCommerce (free), add the PayFast plugin (free) and hey presto, you’ve got your very own online store 🙂
