Selling Used Items using WooCommerce

I keep on thinking, what am I going to do with my newly created blog. I just don’t have any idea. And then, I look through all the things in my own house hoping to found something that I could write about. I saw this Android TV box that sat on the cabinet of my smart TV. Then, I realized that I haven’t use it for quite some time already.

Then, the idea of selling it might be good and I started to look on plugins that will get the job done. The amount of used items that I am going to sell would not be more than 20, I guess, so any well maintained plugin will suffice. I search at the plugin page of wordpress and of course WooCommerce is the first one. Without wasting any time, I installed and and using the setup process provided to start.

For your information, this post is not going to review any functionalities of WooCommerce but inviting my readers who have already using it to share their experiences. I might and will be sharing it in my future post, that’s for sure. 

To keep the discussion going for this post, these are some of the questions that I think useful to determine that this e-commerce platform for wordpress is beginner friendly, secure, scalable, and cost-effective:

  1. Is there enough documentation on how to use the plugin or how large and active the community of WooCommerce?
  2. SEO friendly?
  3. How fast developer halting a security attack and patch any back door? I believe no system is invulnerable to security threats.
  4. Payment gateways?
  5. The availability to integrate shipping tracking

These five questions or points are good enough to start a discussion at least in my point of view, since myself have already using VirtueMart, an open source e-commerce platform for Joomla! which I feel a bit regret because of my personal preferences.

With more than 10 years of working experiences, I find myself to be a dynamic person who adapts to the changes of working environment. Even though I am multitasking, I do not consider myself as an expert in the niche of what I do. Nevertheless, I believe I have a fair amount of knowledge that many people might find very useful.
