GoDaddy’s highly anticipated Managed WooCommerce Stores solution is fully managed and streamlines operating a WordPress online store. While WordPress normally requires entrepreneurs to maintain a complex technology stack, GoDaddy’s Managed WooCommerce Stores house everything needed to sell online, in person, and across popular marketplaces and social platforms from one built-in experience.
On GoDaddy’s new platform, business owners can create unlimited staff accounts, integrate point-of-sale (POS) transactions, send professional emails, and automate abandoned cart recovery, as well as view and manage cross-channel inventory, product catalog, shipping, payments, and more. And for the first time in WooCommerce stores, entrepreneurs can easily sell in-person and across marketplaces and social channels, like Google, Etsy, eBay, Walmart, and Amazon through one unified dashboard and without downloading additional plugins.
GoDaddy’s eCommerce Managed Platform Featuring WooCommerce
GoDaddy’s Managed WooCommerce Stores include more than 25 premium extensions that offer small businesses and developers the flexibility and enhanced functionality WordPress is known for at no extra cost. Plus, GoDaddy’s team of WooCommerce experts manage the WordPress and WooCommerce software, plugins, and extensions of the Stores, so busy entrepreneurs can focus on growing their business rather than managing their tech.
“With our new Managed WooCommerce Stores offering, we wanted to manage complexity and ensure ease-of-use, yet deliver the nearly infinite flexibility of WordPress to empower growing businesses to operate at peak performance while selling exactly the way they want,” said Osama Beider, President of GoDaddy Commerce.
“GoDaddy is one of the largest providers of WordPress solutions, and we’re committed to ensuring businesses with more complex needs can also access seamless e-commerce solutions.”
Managed WooCommerce Stores join GoDaddy’s suite of connected commerce offerings and work seamlessly with GoDaddy POS to unify online and in-person sales, so businesses can provide enhanced capabilities like buy online, and pickup in-store. As part of the GoDaddy Commerce ecosystem, Managed WooCommerce Stores include GoDaddy Payments built-in, enabling businesses to save an average of 20% on card processing when compared to other leading providers, thanks to GoDaddy Payments’ industry-low transaction fees of 2.3% + 30 cents for online and 2.3% flat for in-person sales. Even Apple Pay can be set up with a single click—unlocking digital wallet payments with no plugin required.
GoDaddy’s Managed WooCommerce Store platform is hosted on high-performance Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud servers and fine-tuned to deliver faster page loads and server response times. Businesses can easily add more plugins as their business scales, and the software will always be kept up to date, including PHP versions, WordPress + WooCommerce, plugins, and extensions. This new offering leverages the expertise and technology from GoDaddy’s acquisitions of Poynt and Pagely in 2021, SkyVerge in 2020, and Sellbrite in 2019.
“Pagely has served major media, public sector, and Fortune 1000 clientele for over a decade with skillfully managed WordPress hosting solutions,” said Joshua Strebel, co-founder and CEO at Pagely.
“GoDaddy and Pagely have teamed up to raise the bar for our current and future commerce customers with the launch of Managed WooCommerce Stores.”
As part of the launch, GoDaddy is offering three Managed WooCommerce Store tiers. Businesses are encouraged to try GoDaddy’s Managed WooCommerce Stores through a free 14-day trial.
