Friday marked a monumental milestone. After 52 releases, 35 official themes, 192 official extensions, a lot of hard work, and a whole bunch of community contribution WooCommerce has surpassed 1,000,000 downloads. Only 626 days from it’s launch!
Digging deeper it took us only 137 days from our big 500,000 downloads milestone to double our download count at an average of around 5,000 downloads a day in the last few weeks. That’s some some serious growth that we are immensely proud of and a great testament to the success of version 2.0 that we released just 102 days ago.
We can quickly get caught up in the statistical data trivialising what it is actually important. Those numbers represent real people in countries all around the world. Those people all around the world are starting businesses, or taking their existing businesses online using our e-commerce tools.
And that’s what we are truly proud about.
Thank you to all of our customers and all of our contributors for growing and shaping WooCommerce. We’ve paved a road for much future innovation and exploration in the WordPress eCommerce space.
