Why You Need a WooCommerce Store

Categories

According to a study published by the U.S. Census Bureau’s Department of Commerce, total e-commerce sales in the United States were estimated at $513.6 billion in 2018, a 14.2% increase from 2017. This data has been on an upward trend since 2009. Future projections globally cement e-commerce as the primary shopping method. Now, more than ever, it’s abundantly clear why your business needs a WooCommerce store.

Consistent Growth to Support Your WooCommerce Store

As the graph above shows, since 2009 there is a consistent upward trend in the growth of U.S. Retail E-Commerce Sales as a percentage of total quarterly retail sales. Where things really get interesting is when you break down the numbers on a quarterly basis.

In particular, note the Adjusted Retail Sales in E-commerce as a Percentage of Total Sales. As retail sales rise, so do e-commerce sales. From the 4th Quarter of 2017 to the 4th Quarter of 2018, there was a 12.1% increase in this metric, consistent with larger trends shared across the industry. Getting a WooCommerce store will allow your business to capture this market share.

Better Buying Experience

This data confirms what’s pretty much universal knowledge at this point: online shopping is just a better shopping experience. Consumers find exactly what they want, are able to compare prices between other retailers, and they don’t have to leave their houses to do so.
