WooCommerce: A Platform for Independent Film Websites
Sunday night’s 2015 Oscars drew our attention to the great movies of the past year. But films aren’t just for giant Hollywood studios and celebrities.
There are a surprising number of independent businesses, festivals, and organisations that are doing film-related work, and are using WooCommerce and WordPress to underpin their web presence.
From dedicated film sites to independent studios, from fantasy film festivals to sites dedicated to the business of film, WooCommerce provides the ideal platform for scrappy film entrepreneurs to take their ideas to the world.
Let’s check them out.
From the Artist to the Businessperson: WooCommerce for Artists
If you are an artist, one thing you might want to think about is setting up a website to showcase—and potentially sell—your work.
You could also consider using your expertise to offer online art courses and/or creative mentorship, or booking out your available time for in-person lessons.
If all of this sounds good to you—and you’re looking for a bit of inspiration—below are four examples of art websites using WooCommerce to power their online businesses.
Refresh Your Health. Drink Tea With WooCommerce.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to cut back to one coffee per day.
I’ll be honest with you, so far it sucks.
If you’re trying to do something similar, perhaps a switch to tea might ease the transition? (I sure hope so).
Luckily, a bunch of savvy entrepreneurs are using WooCommerce to sell tea online and spread the word about the health benefits of tea.
Building Momentum: WooCommerce Bitcoin Business
Although the price of bitcoin might be tanking (today it fell below the $200 mark for the first time since October 2013), there is still plenty of momentum building in Bitcoin, as both a technology and a movement.

So to reflect the nexus of these two growing movements, we thought we’d bring you five WooCommerce stores that are offering Bitcoin-related products.

Selling Coffee Online with WooCommerce
Over the weekend, Brent and I were lucky enough to return to home soil to attend WordCamp Sydney.
It was a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with the Australian WordPress community and to spread the word about The Wonderful World of WooCommerce.
One of the highlights was sampling the delicious coffee offerings of The Bearded Roaster, aka Tony Cosentino, who is using WooCommerce to sell his small batch coffee.
Tony’s hairy brand is so memorable, and his coffee (even the decaf) was truly delicious.
The experience inspired us to find some other businesses that are building a brand for selling coffee online using WooCommerce.
