Sometimes your prospective web design clients need a little extra convincing.
Well, I have used the “NYT trick” quite a few times (don’t tell me you haven’t done that at least once)… which goes like this:
“If the New York Times is using WordPress there must be a reason or two, no?” *facepalm*
So, the same applies to WooCommerce. Is WooCommerce scalable? Is WooCommerce just for small businesses? Is WooCommerce hard to maintain? Or is it that lots of great websites (28% of them apparently) are powered by WooCommerce, including big ones?
The WooCommerce.com Showcase Page
WooCommerce.com has its own showcase page, which currently hosts approximately 100 top websites: https://woocommerce.com/showcase/
They have filters you can use to select the business niche, very good screenshots and – of course – links and useful descriptions of customization.
You can try to submit your own WooCommerce project here in case you believe it’s worth a mention: https://woocommerce.com/submit-woocommerce-showcase/
BuiltWith and other Market Research Software
There is cloud based software that scans the internet on a daily basis and categorized it based on technology used, traffic, and other criteria. You probably heard of BuiltWith and its competitors.
Many of these websites are quite expensive and the “free” trial usually requires a login. Out of those that do not require a login, I found 2 lists of WooCommerce websites.
Top 9 WooCommerce Websites by Alexa Rank
Top WooCommerce Websites by Random Order
(the first list is much more reliable, and so is the official WooCommerce showcase)
