WooCommerce is one of the most popular free open-source WordPress plugins for e-commerce sites. It is used by more than 3 million websites including the hipster clothes retailer, Urban Outfitters (Dellaporta, 2016. WooCommerce has over 50,000 plugins that make it one of the most flexible and customizable sputions. Meanwhile, BigCommerce is an e-commerce platform that allows users to create a store within minutes. It is used by more than 700k businesses worldwide and has more than 1 million active stores (BigCommerce. WooCommerce has enjoyed a great popularity since its launch in 2011 as it has many advantages over other SaaS sputions when it comes to free and open source applications.
Even though WooCommerce is free, it does have some drawbacks. Firstly, it requires a lot of development skills to make changes. Secondly, it requires a lot of technical knowledge to make changes such as customizing pages and adding additional features like importing products made in other platforms such as Etsy or eBay. Thirdly, it lacks usability compared to other e-commerce platforms. Fourthly, it has limited features when compared to other SaaS platforms such as BigCommerce or Magento. However, WooCommerce is not entirely bad as it has some benefits where others lack:
Firstly, it gives freedom to developers to build their own plugins and add features that are not supported in the core product. Secondly, it works on multiple platforms such as WordPress, iOS/Android apps and even in physical stores through a feature called WooCommerce Showroom. Thirdly, it is highly customizable and can extend its functionalities through third-party extensions. Forthly, it has a large number of themes that are easily available online and can be downloaded for free. Fifthly, it does offer free training courses both online and offline for merchants who want to learn how to develop their own WooCommerce themes. Sixthly, it offers support from its community as it is an open source platform and any developer can provide suggestions on improvement and development of this platform.
There are several reasons why an organization should integrate WooCommerce with BigCommerce:
Firstly, WooCommerce has large number of plugins and extensions that allow users to add features that otherwise would require a lot of development efforts. This enhances the flexibility of e-commerce platforms and enables users to add new functionalities without significant costs or efforts. Secondly, WooCommerce has a large number of themes that can be customized to fit the brand image of any business. By using WooCommerce themes with BigCommerce mobile app, merchants can enhance their customer experience by improving the look and feel of their website on any device. Thirdly, WooCommerce is completely customizable; all aspects of the website, including templates and design elements can be changed through plugins or extensions developed by expert developers. Integration with BigCommerce will enable the customization of product information, shipping options and more advanced features such as inventory management and warehouse management which otherwise would require costly development efforts and integration between two platforms. Fourthly, BigCommerce has better analytics tops than WooCommerce; therefore merchants will be able to track their customers’ behavior on their websites and improve their website based on the data they cplect. Fifthly, integration with BigCommerce will bring the flexibility of setting various parameters such as branding settings, checkout process settings, shipping settings etc., which otherwise would require integration efforts between two platforms. Sixthly, integration with BigCommerce will allow merchants who want to sell in physical stores to use iPad registers which are integrated with BigCommerce iOS apps. This will give them access to a wider range of possibilities in optimizing their customer experience. Seventhly, BigCommerce has better security than WooCommerce as it can be integrated with multiple platforms including Google Analytics, Amazon Web Services and PayPal for fraud detection purposes. Finally, BigCommerce is much easier to use; even nontechnical users can manage their website easily through its simple dashboard interface which integrates all aspects of the website including inventory management and payment processing options into one simple place.
In conclusion, we believe that integration between WooCommerce and BigCommerce will help merchants achieve higher levels of success in their business as they will be able to customize their website without significant costs or efforts while getting access to advanced features they would otherwise get through costly sputions such as Magento or Shopify. However, merchants must be aware that although integration between these two platforms will avoid most difficulties caused by using two separate platforms, there might still be some difficulties that need to be spved such as payment processing complications etc., but they should not be much harder than what they would be faced with two separate platforms if they used them separately.
