WooCommerce Recommended Platform


It looks like you're using WooCommerce for your website— out of curiosity, would you recommend it?

I'm writing a roundup of e-commerce builders and wanted to reach out to real users to see what they think :)

PS - If you're wondering how I found your website, I was searching for WooCommerce websites and it looked like yours might be one!


Thank you for your interest in Modern Retail.

As I’m sure you noticed from our site we build websites on 4 different ecommerce platforms:  Shopify, Bigcommerce, WooCommerce and Magento.  We’ve been doing this for over 18 years and have something like 550 websites to our credit.  Yes, we like WooCommerce and use it for our own website.  However, we listen to our clients intently and pride ourselves on making sure we match up the right ecommerce platform with the right retailer.  Not an easy thing to do, which I’m sure you know.

We’re a little different in that we do not build websites for .COM "pure plays".  Instead, we’ve focused on retailers, manufacturers and distributors who want to bring their brick-n-mortar business online.  Our claim to fame is our integration technology which can connect over 2 dozen POS and ERP systems to these same 4 ecommerce platforms!  We also sell these POS & ERP integrations to others, which can simply be purchased online.

Yes, we like WooCommerce very much. However, your question is a lot more complicated and every business is different.  Truly understanding the client, their business, people, resources, objectives, budget, etc. ultimately gets us to which ecommerce platform is right.

Good luck to you and let me know if you need anything else.  Thank you.
