WooCommerce Maintenance

Specific services to meet the unique maintenance requirements of WooCommerce

Extra support for WooCommerce Powered Websites

WooCommerce is a powerful e-commerce solution for WordPress. It powers over 1 million online shops of all sizes. Additional functionality can be added through the WooCommerce extension library. All that extra awesomeness translates into a large codebase that requires precise care when updating, especially major release updates (from 2.x.x to 3.x for example), and critical extensions, which happen periodically every year. WooCommerce urges careful testing of major releases against your theme and extensions for compatibility before updating a live site:

What we do

Staging environment testing

When a major WooCommerce or critical extension update is available, we'll push a copy of your site to a temporary development (staging) environment and update WooCommerce. There, we'll test for compatibility and functionality, making sure nothing major is broken. If we find an issue, we'll notify you and recommend a solution. Here's a few things we test for when updating WooCommerce:

  • Theme Compatibility
  • Extension Compatibility
  • Cart Functionality
  • Checkout Functionality
  • Permalink Cache Flush

Performance Optimization

All major search engines take page load speed into consideration when determining how your site stacks up. In addition, usage statistics prove that slower sites have higher visitor abandonment rates – users will leave your site for another rather than wait for pages to load.

To start, we run a speed test on your website to find any glaring issues. Depending on your hosting, many of these issues can easily be fixed. To further increase your site speed, reduce server load, and improve perceived lag, we set up and configure a caching system that also provides a host of features beyond page caching.

Once the initial audit is complete and caching is up and running, we continue to optimize the site through periodic database optimizations. You can also say goodbye to spam comments -- we keep them cleaned out on a regular basis.

  • Speed Test
  • Database Optimization
  • Site Caching
  • File Minification
  • Cache Preloading
  • Spam Protection & Comment Removal

Off-peak upgrade scheduling

After determining that your site is compatible with a WooCommerce update, we'll schedule the update to run during an off-peak time in order to limit any site downtime for your customers. Typically, that means early in the day, but, if you have a specific need just contact us and we'll coordinate the timing with you.
