 Local developer brings open source e-commerce to WordPress

Thousands of existing Web sites and blogs can easily sell online with new hosted e-commerce service

Thursday, January 29 2015

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – A local company has brought e-commerce within reach
of any small business with the launch of the WPCommerce.com.au hosted
cloud service.

Based on the open source WordPress and WooCommerce platforms, WPCommerce
automates the integration, localisation and deployment requirements to
provide business owners with a fully hosted local solution that allows
them to start selling online without manual setup or configuration.

Founder and CTO of WPCommerce, Anand Kumria, says business owners have
longed for an e-commerce service that allows them to sell online without
being burdened by complexity.

“E-commerce has typically been very costly, unnecessarily complex and
difficult to maintain,” Kumria says. “WPCommerce changes all that with a
user-friendly interface that is integrated with the familiar WordPress
content system. With WPCommerce business owners can focus on selling and
not worry about hosting, configuring and other software requirements.”

WPCommerce supports selling of any product or service, multiple payment
options, shipping and tax calculation, discount vouchers, sales reports
and many other features.

“In addition to the core features, WPCommerce customers can add any
number of the many free and paid-for modules available for WooCommerce
to match a business requirement,” Kumria says.

“For Web designers, WPCommerce supports free, paid-for and
custom-developed WordPress themes and templates to give your shop a
unique look and feel.”

All WPCommerce subscribers get a fully hosted WordPress Web site
provisioned with the integrated online store, however, WPCommerce stores
can also be added to any type of existing Web site – including
non-WordPress sites – by prepending a “shop”, or similar, sub-domain to
the URL.

“If you’ve invested in an existing Web site you don’t need to change
anything to use WPCommerce. Simply provision your WPCommerce online
store and update the DNS settings to a “shop” sub-domain,” Kumria says.

WPCommerce data is hosted in Australia, with other geographies available
on request. WPCommerce is online at: https://www.wpcommerce.com.au
