WooCommerce Website Maintenance
We don’t need to tell you the features, benefits and just how amazing WooCommerce is as an online store. This humble plugin has grown over the years and evolved to so much more than a simple ecommerce solution. The popularity in this WordPress plugin has meant that it’s developers are constantly reinvesting and developing the platform to perform better, increase functionality and to more importantly patch against vulnerabilities and malicious code. This has made WooCommerce website maintenance such an import part of successful online stores.
This continual development requires that your site is updated regularly to take advantage of the latest code fixes and to run at optimal levels. It may seem as simple as clicking the ‘Update’ button from the plugins menu, but what happens if something goes wrong? Some of the common scenarios we see are:
- Your product layouts break and display randomly
- Shipping, tax or product variations are messed up
- The cart and checkout process simply fail
- … or worst case, the site doesn’t load and you see the ‘white screen of death’
Our intention is not to scare, but rather to highlight just a handful of the scenarios you could face if your WooCommerce install is not kept up-to-date.
