Reasons to migrate to WooCommerce
If you are thinking of migrating your Prestashop online store installation to WordPress,in this case Woocommerce (WordPress online store plugin) you do well, and you’re sure to have taken into account any of these factors:
Popularity is very important to me. And it’s because if many have bet on a platform, it’s because it’s good, right?
And not only is it good because there are many users in itself, but also because the software is moving faster, there are more resources for its development and modules that support it, making it easier to offer functionalities.
Automattic is behind
The company that led the development of Woocommerce, was bought by Automattic (which develops WordPress) in May 2015. It was an excellent move and users benefited, as the Online Store project was universally consolidated.
Interestingly since that date, it was when Woocommerce has outperformed Prestashop in popularity. Surely many users would trust Woocommerce more ever since.
All in one administrator
I have seen many pages that make mixes of different CMS (content managers) on a single website. Mixes like Prestashop + WordPress for the blog, PHP + Prestashop + WordPress (the most convoluted), PHP + Prestashop, etc.. This makes it difficult for the user to maintain their own website,as they have to access different sites to change the information, and we do not have with circumstance that sometimes even there are parts that can be changed.
Having WordPress + Woocommerce you have a single admin to manage your online store, blog, static pages, and more. Very easy to manage and maintain.
Better sales opportunities
The blog is a tool to get new customers. The better it is integrated with the online store, the better options we will have that the user “does not miss” and continue browsing to buy in our store.
In addition, within the online store, you can integrate your blog posts, making the page more attractive for search engines.
