WooCommerce for Small and Growing Businesses
The main reason behind WooCommerce’s popularity was and still is the ability to provide a free, highly customizable, secure, and scalable e-commerce solution to small business owners who do not have the luxury to invest thousands of dollars into adopting a payment solution that they have little control over. WooCommerce remains free to date and for those who wish to add more features and functionality to the base package can buy as many paid extensions as they want that further enhance the core functionality.
With WooCommerce, the list of goods and services you can sell is virtually endless. You can choose to sell within your own country, internationally, or even selected regions. Not just that you can offer product iterations, offer downloads, bookings, memberships, make real-time calculations, the list goes on. See the links included at the end of this article for quick reference about what WooCommerce can do for your business.
WooCommerce comes bundled with the ability to accept major credit cards, PayPal, BACS (bank transfers), and cash on delivery. Need additional options? More than 140 region-specific gateways integrate with WooCommerce, including popular choices like Stripe, Authorize.Net, and Amazon Payments.
WooCommerce provides your business to accept all major credit cards, accept payments through PayPal, bank transfers, and even cash on delivery. It just doesn’t end there. For countries or regions that use specific payment gateways like Stripe, Authorize or Amazon Payments, WooCommerce provides more than 140 additional gateways that are region or country specific.
WooCommerce and TransitQuote Complement Each Other
The marriage of TransitQuote and WooCommerce can work wonders for your business. Just consider the following scenarios:
