If you have been following our blog, you would know that we are undoubtedly WooCommerce fans. WooCommerce is an e-commerce plugin that can be easily incorporated into WordPress websites. We love it because it offers business owners unmatched options for customizing their online stores. Unlike any other platforms online, it is secure, easy to use, and great for the online entrepreneur.

For those who have online businesses and have considered making the switch over to WooCommerce, we’re counting down the top 5 WooCommerce features we love:

1. Fast filtered search results.

When we build websites for our clients we are always looking for features that enhance the shopping experience. For us, it starts with being able to filter through search results, quickly and effectively. Fast filtered search results help customers get to the shopping cart faster which is the goal for any online business. With WooCommerce, users can filter using site reviews, colors, prices, sizes and more.

2. Custom Featured Items.

This is a great tool for online shops. Some platforms will automatically feature newly added items, which isn’t always convenient. With this WooCommerce feature, business owners can easily click the items of their choice to be showcased at any given time. This option can help during sales, promotions, or to highlight what is new in stock.

3. Disabling Customer Reviews.

We always advocate for transparency and urge businesses to encourage honest online reviews. However, there comes a time when online shops have to protect their sites from spammers and inappropriate content. WooCommerce can help you moderate comments and disable future comments from specific users who are abusing their privileges online.

4. Add additional images and captions to items.

Online businesses build trust with consumers when the products they sell online meet expectations. By creating options that allow shop owners to add additional images and captions to describe their items, customers can have a good idea of what their product is going to be like.

5. You don’t have to use every feature.

Some platforms or plugins require you to activate every feature in order for it to function properly on your website. The great thing about WooCommerce? You get to use what you need, when you need it. There are so many options to choose from and you can use them at your discretion. Simply hide or minimize any functions and move onto your next task, when using WooCommerce.
