Ecommerce is growing fast, and these WooCommerce statistics show that it’s at the forefront. With over 3 million active shops, WooCommerce is the most popular eCommerce platform in the world.
It was released in late 2011 as a plugin from a successful WordPress theme company called WooThemes. The plugin was extremely successful, and very quickly overshadowed their theme business as their main source of revenue.
A short 4 years later the company would be acquired by Automattic, and change their name to WooCommerce.
Now there are over 29 million downloads of the plugin, and it represents over 40% of all online shops.
There are 327 extensions on woocommerce.com, and 1,196 plugins tagged WooCommerce on Code Canyon.
