No matter how or what a merchant wants to sell, you can make it happen with WooCommerce. Our flexible platform lets you build the shopping experience of their dreams for nearly anything: physical products, digital downloads, services, accommodations, bookings, or even subscriptions.
Need to integrate with other software? If there’s not already an extension in our Marketplace, you can build your own connections with nearly any application out there.
We want you to have the best possible experience of building with Woo. Take a look at our curated list of developer resources and guides designed to help you make the most out of our platform.
“We’re stronger together! Proprietary software companies filled with VC money are everywhere. By leveraging the freedoms of open source and working together we can truly become a force to be reckoned with.”
— Jimmy Rosen, Angry Creative
“The expandability of Woo is great, we moved to Woo because of the customizability. With Shopify, everything is behind a paywall and makes it difficult to test and develop.”
— Jason Mares, Skytech Gaming
Work on WordPress
If you know WordPress, you already know the basics of developing on WooCommerce. Use all the plugins you already love, and even manage stores with the tried and true WP-CLI.
Get the tools you need
Hooks, filters, and REST API endpoints let you build whatever you need — the way you want to build it. Or tap into hundreds of pre-built extensions in our Marketplace so you can go to market faster.
Made for developers, by developers
WooCommerce is fully open source and publicly built on GitHub. Help create the future of ecommerce by contributing to the core software with fellow developers.
Unlike closed-source platforms, WooCommerce gives your clients full ownership over their store and their data. Their site, store, order, and customer information is truly theirs — not leased from their ecommerce platform. Plus, you can host on whatever solution you prefer, including dozens of WordPress-optimized options.
Have an idea for an extension that will benefit WooCommerce merchants? Add recurring revenue streams to your business by selling your work in our Marketplace. Tens of thousands of merchants and developers visit every month to find solutions for automation, shipping, marketing, and more.
Give your clients a quick and convenient way to test the power of Woo. Woo Express comes with fast and secure hosting from WordPress.com, a customizable storefront, and access to all the tools required to run and build a successful online store.

“We parallel ran Woo against our Magento platform and found Woo had better conversion rates and better average basket value. We’re also happy to see how our Woo bundles have been performing (as a bonus they are a pain to set up on Magento, and straightforward on Woo).”
— Yas Poptani, Packt
“We use every chance possible to bolster Open Source projects such as WordPress or WooCommerce to democratize publishing and make the ecommerce field a fair-play for everybody… especially in these times where accessibility, privacy and user experience are paramount for any kind of meaningful growth.”
— Kresimir Koncic, Neuralab
