Expanding your sales on WooCommerce can boost your financial opportunities
A versatile listing tool with WooCommerce integration – List on WooCommerce and many other platforms
Ad-Lister has added WooCommerce onto its list of platforms it integrates with. WooCommerce is a strong addition to the list of selling platforms on which you can manage your listings using our software. Ad-Lister allows you to create, manage your products and then upload them to multiple sales channels when ready.
WooCommerce is a free plugin that transforms WordPress websites into editable eCommerce stores. First released in 2011 by WooThemes, a WordPress theme development agency with roots in Norway, the United Kingdom, and South Africa, it was later acquired by Automattic, makers of WordPress.com and Jetpack. In the U.S. alone, WooCommerce powers a whopping 55% of all eCommerce sites and nearly 2.3 million online stores. With 66,560,342 downloads, WooCommerce is the most popular eCommerce platform on the web.
Since the release of the WooCommerce 3.5 in October 2018, the development team has been working hard on a variety of improvements that are now available in the highly efficient WooCommerce 3.6 version. The 3.6 version is considered to be a minor release, though, meaning it should be fully compatible with all WooCommerce releases since the now famous 3.0. It is recommended for its users to follow best practices and back up their site prior to updating to the newest version of the application.
But how does WooCommerce 3.6 help sellers boost their profits? Well, the app was developed specifically to work with WordPress, which is by far the most popular blogging/website software in the world. WooCommerce preserves many of the core functions when compared to the standard WordPress experience, but adds eCommerce capability, configuration, and customization. If you’ve used WordPress in the past, maybe to start blogging or showcase your business, WooCommerce will look and feel familiar.
In WooCommerce 3.6, Product Blocks are built upon the power of the block editor, allowing sellers to easily feature products on posts and pages with eight new blocks:
- Featured products: Select and display a single product in a new “high-impact” format.
- Control text alignment, show or hide the price and description, add a color overlay, change the button call to action, specify a custom height, or override the product photograph.
- Individual, hand-picked products: Search for and display products of your choice in a grid.
- Bestsellers/top-rated: Display a grid of your best-selling products, filterable by category.
- Newest products: Display a grid of your newest products, filterable by category.
- Sale products: Display a grid of on sale products, filterable by category.
- Products with specific attributes or terms: Display any products that have been assigned multiple or specific attribute terms.
While Product Blocks open up a variety of improvements to the visual side of your store, a great deal of work has gone into making WooCommerce perform better in both customer-facing and administrative pages.
The foundation of the performance improvements in 3.6 is built upon a new Product Data Lookup Table which takes key pieces of data about products and makes them more efficient to query.
