Wordress and Woocommerce – Out West Online
At Out West Online we love to build and manage websites using WordPress and create eCommerce websites running WooCommerce. Using the power, scalability and flexibility that WordPress offers, our team of WordPress website designers are able to create a solution for your business.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is open source software (free) that can used to create beautiful websites, blogs and apps. The most recent statistics show that since March 2016, WordPress is actually powering 26.4% of the Web, and it’s on the rise. It is also by far the most used CMS (Content Management System), with 59.4% market share.
We prefer to work with WordPress as it has the following features:
- 100% Mobile friendly
- Easy to update from an computer, tablet or smart mobile phone
- SEO Friendly
- Customers/Businesses can easily update their own website whenever they like with the latest news, photo’s, make changes.

What is WooCommerce?
If you are looking for a website that offers you all the benefits of an open source solution but with the functionality of a shopping cart, then WooCommerce is the best choice for your estore / online shop. Over 18% of the world’s shopping carts are powered by WooCommerce, so you can rest assured you’ll be in good company. WooCommerce is 100% free out of the box and you can purchase specific plugins for particular features.
For example Out West Online created a WordPress and WooCommerce website for a local training company in Vittoria, NSW called VS&R. We added specific WooCommerce extensions to enable the estore to act a booking function for their training courses. E.g. www.vsr.com.au/product/non-accredited-chainsaw-maintenance-cross-cutting/
