We think WooCommerce is the best thing to happen to the web since WordPress.
Prospress is a tiny company standing on the shoulders of this giant eCommerce plugin. We use its extendability to build software customers love, help organise a few local meetups and talk about it at events all over the world.
We exist to make the world’s best eCommerce platform a little better, because we want to help entrepreneurs prosper with WordPress.
Our flagship product, WooCommerce Subscriptions, helps entrepreneurs sell subscriptions to all manner of digital and physical goods. Stores use it to sell energy food for elite athletes; fishing tackle without the hassle; salsa dancing lessons; carbon offsets; nail polish; pet food; socks; soap; eco-friendly craft boxes for kids, and everything in between.
Looking for a more convenient way for your customers to pay? PayPal Digital Goods provides in-context payments so that your customers can pay in a pop-up, rather than leaving your site. We built the PayPal Digital Goods extension for WooCommerce to help store managers offer secure payments without the hassle of SSL certificates or merchant accounts.
The traditional checkout process requires a customer to go from the product page to the cart page to the checkout page. The number of steps involved in this process can contribute significantly to cart abandonment, which is why we built a One Page Checkout plugin for WooCommerce. Add to cart, checkout & pay without a single page refresh.
