WordPress + Woocommerce 開網店—有什麼需要注意的地方? | 香港網店設計專家

WordPress + Woocommerce — What should I pay attention to? | Hong Kong Online Store Design Expert

WordPress started to provide blog hosting services, and then began to appear e-commerce functions. WooCommerce is an e-commerce development tool integrated with WordPress, and WooCommerce is also built by WordPress 's parent company, Automattic. 

The combination of WordPress + Woocommerce is a solution to build an independent website. We believe that any merchants who have gone out to ask for a quotation know that the cost of website production can range from thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. The reason is that there are so many variables that can be involved.

A common misunderstanding among merchants is that WordPress is a completely free website building software, so the production fee must be the cheapest. Yes, WordPress  itself is free, but to build a website with a certain quality, it is impossible to be completely free. It's like eating fast food. You'd never need to pay for the tray, but for the food - french fries, soft drinks, fried chicken, ice cream, all are charged items.

Unless you are a programmer with PHP+MySQL website development/coding background and experience and handle most of the procedures and maintenance by yourself, it will be difficult to keep the development low.

In addition to manual work, many items must be paid in advance, such as:

  • Server: You must purchase hosting space, and you will be responsible for managing this website hosting in the future. You can purchase it through any third-party web hosting service provider/supplier, including Godaddy, Siteground, Hostgator, etc.
  • Themes: The theme is the overall appearance and style of the website visually and user interaction. Every WordPress website needs to choose a theme. Free ones are usually not too pretty or quite buggy, so buying paid themes is another compulsory expense.
  • E-commerce functions (money flow, logistics, order management, tracking code...)
  • Plug-ins (Although there are many free plug-ins for WP, many free plug-ins have a lot of bad reviews, so it is inevitable to buy professional plug-ins for a fee)
  • Time cost (the production time varies, but setting up an independent official website is often longer than using a shop system)

Many people will compare Shopify with WordPress. We believe that both platforms have their own merits, mainly depends on your needs and knowledge. To sum up the above content, Shopify is more suitable for beginners and companies that don’t want to invest too much money and time to build an online store, while WordPress requires more time and effort to set up, so people with coding experience can do it.
