If you sell online, or if you’re planning to sell online, going for an e-commerce tool that makes it easy for mobile users to navigate and perform transactions on your store is a no-brainer. The following e-commerce tools make it extremely easy to sell on mobile devices:
This list wouldn’t be complete without WooCommerce, and this is because, unlike all the other options listed, WooCommerce makes it extremely easy to run an e-commerce store on WordPress.
If you’d like to run an ecommerce store on your WordPress site and you’re worried about support for mobile, then worry no more…WooCommerce has been downloaded by almost 10 million people, and it reportedly powers over 30% of all online stores; WooCommerce has an iOS app that helps you know what’s going on with your store on your mobile, and you can easily download other WordPress plugins to enhance your WooCommerce mobile functionality.
Just a note! - WooCommerce is billed as a "free" e-commerce platform. Technically, it is. Practically, it is not. To get the most out of WooCommerce capabilities be prepared to pay for "extensions, plugins, and add-ons" to achieve your needs. The more complex your operation, the more expensive. All in all the add-ons and extensions are great VALUES and well worth the investment. Be sure to have a development store setup so that you can test functionality! - JMH
