For years, WordPress has been the most successful CMS, which is expanding its areas of application with the help of plugins. A very successful extension is WooCommerce, with which you can integrate a shop into your CMS. According to WordPress statistics, there are now over five million active installations of this plugin. This is also reflected in the usage statistics. The website BuiltWith shows in statistics that over 29 percent of the top 1,000,000 e-commerce websites are operated with WordPress and WooCommerce.
If you have also considered integrating your own shop into your WordPress website, in this workshop we will show you what you should pay attention to.
Perform basic installation
From a WordPress point of view, WooCommerce is a completely normal plugin that is best installed via the official plugin directory. You can either install WooCommerce as a new website or integrate it into an existing one. Of the technical requirements, the plugin requires WordPress version 5.3 or higher and at least PHP 7.0. It has already been tested and approved by the developers under the current version 5.6.
