WooCommerce is the most popular eCommerce platform on the Internet
It’s pretty clear consumers are comfortable using the Internet to make purchases. Since 2013 the percentage of eCommerce based retail sales have more than doubled to nearly 15% of all sales. eCommerce represented a growing share of the retail market in 2018, taking a 14.3% share of total retail sales last year, up from 12.9% in 2017 and 11.6% in 2016.
More significant than that however, is the fact that eCommerce sales represented more than half, or 51.9%, of all retail sales growth. This is the largest share of growth for purchases made online since 2008, when eCommerce accounted for 63.8% of all sales growth. It seems clear that eCommerce is the way of the future, there’s really no denying it anymore.
There are quite a few popular ecommerce platforms that rule the world when it comes to their frequency on the entire web. Of the top platforms, the incontestable leader is WooCommerce.
WooCommerce represents a staggering 43.5% of the eCommerce market, followed by Magento, Shopify, Presta and OpenCart.

Why is WooCommerce leading the pack?
You’re probably asking now what’s so special about WooCommerce and why is it the first in the world. Well, WooCommerce is the preferred ecommerce extension of WordPress, the most commonly used content management system. WordPress powers 25% of all the websites worldwide.
So, it makes sense that WooCommerce is leading the pack in the ecommerce niche. There are lots of WordPress users who have online shops, which naturally makes WooCommerce the most obvious solution for their sites.
Like WordPress, WooCommerce is also the most popular shopping cart system in the world, powering over 40% of all eCommerce websites. Best of all it’s free. Sort of. While it’s certainly possible to set up shop and start selling online with only the free WooCommerce plugin, there are some areas that require premium / paid add-ons.
WooCommerce offers a wide variety of great premium add-ons, powerful features, which make it very easy to manage by everyone. So, if you’re already using the WordPress platform and you’re looking to incorporate WooCommerce, your site will also be leading the pack, so to speak.
Benefits of using WooCommerce
WooCommerce is the leader primarily due to its amazing support from the development community. There are literally hundreds of amazing add-ons and other services which can be integrated, but it also comes with a couple of of things you need to consider as well. No software is perfect. Let’s review the Good and “Less Good” aspects of WooCommerce and make sure its a good fit for your project.
- It’s FREE.
- WooCommerce allows unlimited products and product attributes.
- It works seamlessly with WordPress on on all device platforms.
- Once installed, it’s all yours. It’s not proprietary (you can move it around from host to host) and it comes with a large variety of customization options that are easy to use. You can manage everything about it exactly as you like.
- It’s very easy to install and manage. WooCommerce is very intuitive and it doesn’t require that you are a Webmaster in order to manage it.
