Why use WordPress for eCommerce?

WordPress has rapidly grown in recent years to power over 25% of websites, with WooCommerce (WordPress’ popular eCommerce solution) powering over 30% of all online stores.

WordPress is no longer just a blogging platform. It has grown and adapted to become a powerful, flexible and efficient CMS that online retailers of all sizes trust to power their site.

Who is the event for?

The event is for eCommerce managers and online store owners who use WooCommerce. Whether they want to get more out of the software, or are using alternative platforms and are considering making the move to WooCommerce.
