These days, especially, there is a lot of change confusion in what we call the “high-risk” e-commerce market. Finding an affordable, vape friendly WooCommerce payment gateway merchant account combo can be hard enough, cutting through the clutter and effectively marketing your site requires even more.

We have come to know WooCommerce pretty darn well too, and offer one on one, personalized hand-holding to help get e-commerce electronic cigarette merchants using the WordPress platform up and running in no time.

Add WordPress extensions to suit the vape industry and customize your site

The giant world of WordPress and WooCommerce compatible plug-ins enables you to create an e-commerce website that does exactly what you want it to. Additionally, Woo Commerce is mobile friendly out of the box and is infinitely scalable so your website can grow as your business grows.

WooCommerce opens up more possibilities for vape merchants than just run of the mill e-commerce. With programs like the Sensei plug-in, you can create online courses, sell memberships to recurring billing auto-ship clubs (a potentially HUGE revenue source) and so much more. Don’t forget, we can help set up a gateway and recommend a processor that is comfortable with your recurring billing model, contact us anytime to learn more using the form at the bottom of this page.

Because WooCommerce is open source, programmers have created an extensive library of useful tools, some free and some premium. Some of these plugins can help with things like marketing and promotion, for example, e-mail marketing extensions like Constant Contact and AWebber can make the advertising e-mails you send more eye-catching, interesting, and look less like spam, helping you catch more potential buyers. Additionally, there are great plugins for social media interaction and other promotional extensions.

Other useful extensions include shipping help and inventory management. It is important to mention that there are tons of these third-party extensions that offer a wide variety of functionality which could prove invaluable to your e-commerce sales effort, but you need to be aware and check reviews. WooCommerce is an open-source platform it is possible fraudsters and hackers can take advantage of poorly coded plugins.

Another perk from using WooCommerce is that it’s so well-known. When you need ideas, suggestions, or an emergency fix, the fact that everyone is familiar with WooCommerce can be a huge positive for your business.
