Investing in a professional support and maintenance plan is the smart choice for any WooCommerce store owner.
In today’s digital age, having a website for your business is no longer an option, it’s a necessity. WooCommerce is one of the world’s most popular eCommerce platforms. It offers a range of features and functionalities that make it easy for businesses to sell their products online.
Hiring a company that specializes in WooCommerce support & maintenance services can be extremely beneficial for your business. You will gain a team of experts who are well-versed in all aspects of WooCommerce, including:
They can help ensure that your online store is always up-to-date with the latest software and security patches, which can help prevent security breaches and other issues.
In addition to security and updates, a WooCommerce maintenance plan can also help ensure that your website is optimized for speed and performance. This is crucial for e-commerce websites, as slow loading times can lead to a loss of sales and customers.
With a WooCommerce maintenance plan, you can rest assured that your website will always be running smoothly and efficiently, which can help increase your sales and revenue.
If you are running an online WooCommerce store, then you need to optimize it for speed and performance. Doing so will help you improve your website’s visibility on search engines, reduce bounce rate, and increase sales.
Reducing the bounce rate is key. As the bounce rate is how quickly a visitor enters and leaves your site. You want the visitor to remain on your site for as long as possible and visit multiple web pages. One way to do so is by increasing your shop’s loading speed. This will make clicking through and ordering services/products on your shop fast and easy. Moreover, a fast online shop will rank higher on Google and that will most likely lead to an increase in sales.
👉 Optimizing your WooCommerce shop 👈 can be done through a number of methods such as:
By doing these steps correctly, you can ensure that your website loads quickly and efficiently. Both of which will result in a better user experience. This in turn will lead to more conversions and higher sales for your business.
Automation testing is becoming an increasingly popular tool for many e-commerce stores. It enables them to quickly and accurately test their checkout procedures, payment processes, and other aspects of their WooCommerce shop. Automation testing can help reduce the time and effort needed to manually test each process, ensuring that customers have a smooth, secure checkout experience.
We can develop automation tests for payment processes that can run as often as you need. Our developers can supplement these tests by also manually checking your procedures from time to time during cyclical support hours.
There are a few benefits of setting up automation testing for the checkout procedures on your WooCommerce shop include:
Both of which can lead to more sales and an influx of potential clients.
The faster your online shop loads the rate of conversions goes up. If your shop is slow loading and has overall poor performance, you will have significantly fewer conversions. This second statement can greatly impact your business and lower sales.
We created a chart based on statistics provided by Queue-it which shows that a site that loads in one second or less has higher conversion rates than a shop that loads in 2 or 3 seconds. And definitely more than a shop that loads in 4 seconds.
According to ContentKing, Amazon has done a study in which they show that for every 100ms that is added to page load time costs them 1% in sales. For such a big company this can mean millions of dollars lost. But it is definitely something to think about even if you are a small shop owner.
We have experience working with clients from all over the world, and we currently have contracts with multiple businesses maintaining their WooCommerce shops. Thanks to our extensive experience working on supporting online stores of different sizes and with different needs, we’ve been able to create a customizable approach that makes our clients happy:
When you first contact us, we listen to you to best understand your website maintenance needs. We can help you pick a website maintenance plan that is best suited for your WooCommerce store. Also, we will help you narrow down the number of additional hours that you will need for small website edits. Once we understand your needs and know that they can be met on our side. We sign a contract with you.
The next step is to onboard you to our communication and organizational tools. We give our customers access to Slack and ClickUp. Using Slack you can communicate directly with our developers, QA testers, and project manager. While ClickUp gives you the ability to create tasks for our development team to do. You can also assign priority to these tasks from none to urgent, depending on your project needs.
The next step involves our team checking out the health of your WooCommerce store. First & foremost we check if your online shop is properly optimised. Are the pages on your store fast-loading? Additionally, we check if there are any security issues.
Now, our developers can set up a staging site where all updates, support services, and maintenance services will be done before moving everything to production. At this time they will also set up a testing and local environment for your shop.
Whenever we get a new project, our developers take the time to learn about your site. They want to understand how the code was written and why. Moreover, coders take the time to learn the structure of your site and where files are located.
The next step in the process is for our team to run security procedures for your site. Our WooCommerce developer will create additional security measures for your store. This will improve the overall security of your site.
Now, we can finally run the first updates, maintenance, and support for your online store. The first time around can take a while especially if your store hasn’t been updated in a long time. Typically, updating plugins takes the longest to update.
Now, we can run cyclical support services for your site. This takes significantly less time than the first go around. For every maintenance service, you will receive a 👉 website care report 👈. In this report, you will find information about plugin updates, security, and site optimization.
Check out when you should turn to a WooCommerce maintenance company to handle all maintenance tasks.

Moreover, you want to be able to add new shop categories. Along with new payment options, delivery options, etc.
You want to test out your payment processes on a regular basis. This can be done with the help of developers. Or via an automation system that can test out your checkout process as often as you want without manual intervention.
Additionally, you want to improve the speed & performance of your eCommerce website. You are aware that high-performing shops lead to more conversions which makes you more money. Also, a fast online store will rank higher on Google and other search engine browsers. Lastly, you don’t want to rebuild your online shop from scratch and shove out a ton of money.
Freelance coders who work on WooCommerce shops may not always be reliable or have good communication skills. Additionally, freelancers do not always stick to deadlines for various reasons such as taking on too many clients. This can be frustrating and lead to more problems on your site.
Whereas if hire WooCommerce developers from a WordPress agency you gain:
Moreover, you’ll have a central point of contact with developers, QA testers, and project managers to answer any technical questions you may have.
The length of time required to complete WooCommerce maintenance services will vary. The first time we run support & maintenance service it will take much longer than any other cyclical support.
When we run our preliminary WooCommerce maintenance services it can even take several days. This is for a few reasons. First of all, our developers need time to learn your project and decipher the code that was written. All of the time this code is outdated or just all over the place like spaghetti.
Secondly, it may take longer if your shop has been left alone for a long time and therefore has a heavy load of maintenance tasks. Moreover, most times plugin updates take a long time, and the more plugins you have, the longer the process. Also, security issues may cause for support process to run longer as well.
But once we get through that initial support service, the next routine services will only take a few hours as opposed to several days. The tasks included in our plans will be done fairly quickly once your shop is brought up to speed the first time around.
