Choosing WooCommerce to sell digital products
WooCommerce is an amazing platform if you are planning to go online. I would suggest for anything ecommerce development from small to medium scale, WooCommerce does great job.
As WooCommerce Developer, if you are good at what you are doing, you can expect to get really busy. Market share of WooCommerce is definitely growing.
WooCommerce is one of the most used ecommerce platform in the world. That’s because:
- WooCommerce is free
- WooCommerce is featured packed
- WooCommerce have numerous add-ons and plugins available
So depending upon your project specifications, WooCommerce can be a very good choice for your ecommerce store, without a doubt.
Let’s get to the point. Why WooCommerce is great for selling digital products online. Say for example you are selling products like audios, videos or even premium plugins WooCommerce can be a very good option.
Here are reasons why.
WooCommerce is free
Yes, WooCommerce is free to download, use and customise as your necessity.
Adding Digital Product is really easy
Digital product is added same way like other project by setting it as downloadable product. Just need to select the option from the list.
There are several ways to protect files. One of the feature I loved is to provide access after purchase.
Another features I loved is restricting the number of times file is allowed to download. If you are worried about your digital files being pirated, restrict it to number of times it can be downloaded.
WooCommerce always supported Paypal by default.
Good news is that WooCommerce had made its Stripe Plugin free. Previously it used to be premium plugin and needed yearly renewal. Great gesture from WooCommerce. I would have happily bought this plugin and used it.
On top of these free payment methods, there are several plugins for various payment gateways already built in.
