We’ve had quite a year at WooCommerce, including three major core releases, launching new extensions such as Facebook and Fulfillment by Amazon, kick-starting WooCommerce Services, upgrading WooCommerce.com account management, hosting WooConf in Seattle, re-igniting our Affiliate Network, and more!
Also this year, we shared more about the customers that typically find their way to WooCommerce.com. They are:
- Building sites for themselves
- Creating complex stores with multiple product types
- Residing all over the world, across industries.
Developers choose WooCommerce.com for its openness and the option to customize to their heart’s content, often with stable and well-supported extensions. We’re grateful to everyone who put their trust in our platform this year and continue to make the journey alongside us.
Top 10 WooCommerce.com Extensions in 2017
We refined our catalog on WooCommerce.com. Once upon a time we had more than 450 extensions but have scaled back to a curated collection of 147 extensions and counting.
To celebrate the end of 2017, we pulled data on what products piqued your interest in the form of our Marketplace top sellers.
