WordCamp Asheville could not continue without the support of our generous sponsors. We are so grateful for their generosity. This year we wanted to give everyone the chance to meet our sponsors more personally and learn more about what they do and why they do it. We asked each sponsor to have someone on their team share the company story, as well as how they stay involved with and invested in the WordPress community. So, without further ado…we would like to introduce WooCommerce.
Q. What is your name?
A. Nicole Kohler
Q. What does WooCommerce do?
A. WooCommerce is a free eCommerce toolkit for WordPress. It is used by over 30% of all online stores, and allows you to sell anything, anywhere, beautifully. WooCommerce is free, and also has paid extensions that can be added to increase its capabilities such as add subscription support, memberships, and more.
Q. Why do you do this work? What is your vision and mission?
A. We created WooCommerce to give anyone the power to sell anything – physical goods, digital products, subscriptions, downloads, memberships, even your time – from anywhere in the world. Our mission is to give people the power to run a robust eCommerce website with WordPress.
Q. Who are your ideal customers?
A. Anyone who wants to sell online can use WooCommerce!
Q. Why do you support WordCamp Asheville? What do you hope attendees gain from participating?
A. As a global sponsor of WordCamps, we aim to learn more about what current WooCommerce users are doing, what we can do to better support them, and how we can grow and improve our plugin and its extensions. We hope that attendees gain a better sense of who we are and what we are trying to accomplish, and maybe also get some questions answered or problems solved by our helpful ninjas :).
Q. How do you use WordPress or how do your clients/customers use it? Why is WordPress important to you?
A. WordPress is the core of every WooCommerce installation. We use it every day, and it’s incredibly important to us. Our ninjas have taken many different paths to discover and use WordPress – it’s a common bond among us, something that has brought us all together.
Q. How can people learn more about what you do?
