GoDaddy and WooCommerce Join Forces


GoDaddy, the company that empowers everyday entrepreneurs, today announced an integration with WooCommerce, the most popular and powerful eCommerce engine available for WordPress. The integration, now available in South Africa, reduces the typical four-step set-up process into a single easy step, so GoDaddy WordPress customers can set up a fully-functioning eCommerce site in no time.

The new WooCommerce plan dramatically simplifies the onboarding process for eCommerce WordPress sites by combining hosting services, WordPress, WooCommerce, and integrated feature extensions into an automated one-step setup solution. This synchronised process reduces the number of setup screens by 70% compared to other options in the market. 

“GoDaddy and WooCommerce share the goal of helping entrepreneurs to succeed online, and we’re thrilled to be working with the WooCommerce community to help South African WordPress customers fast-track into the world of eCommerce,” says Selina Bieber, Regional Director for Turkey and MENA at GoDaddy EMEA. “This integration is a quick, efficient and simple way to build an online shop to help a business grow.”

“At Automattic, our goal is to democratise publishing and commerce on the open web,” said Matt Mullenweg, the cofounder of WordPress and founder and CEO of WooCommerce parent, Automattic. “WooCommerce in partnership with GoDaddy offers a tremendous opportunity to give people the freedom and simplicity to sell anything online, around the world.”

With this integration, WordPress users can quickly establish their eCommerce sites with pre-populated, customisable design themes. GoDaddy WordPress customers receive free access to top WooCommerce premium extensions. GoDaddy also gives users peace of mind when it comes to site and payment security by providing free auto-managed SSL, eliminating the need for regular site recertification and re-keying.
