Woocommerce can be defined as a plugin. In fact, this is what it is, a plugin that is installed in WordPress and serves to create a functional online store on one page without the need to know programming or have a lot of computer skills. In turn, it transforms your entire page so that you can sell with the most distinctive elements, such as a cart or shopping cart in which users can put the products they are about to buy, a purchase completion system, payment methods and expenses.
Woocommerce is aimed at small and medium entrepreneurs, that is, it serves both freelancers and small and medium enterprises and companies that are not very large (even large ones, with some changes, it can serve them, although this is not their target audience.). Due to its simplicity, today it is one of the most popular for creating an online store in a matter of minutes.
It was created by WooThemes, which launched it on September 27, 2011 and in a short time managed to get a lot of companies, web pages, blogs, etc. They will turn it on and start their e-commerce journey, knowing nothing about programming, just right filling in the plugin to make it work correctly.
