WooCommerce turns a WordPress website into an eCommerce powerhouse.

With over 69 million downloads, WooCommerce is the most popular eCommerce platform for building an online store. WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin that adds eCommerce functionality to a WordPress website. Many WordPress themes are built specifically for WooCommerce. One major benefit of WooCommerce is that it’s an an open-source platform and can be modified with hundreds of WooCommerce-specific plugins.

Why do we use WooCommerce?

WooCommerce is one of the most customizable eCommerce platforms for building your online business. One advantage of WooCommerce is that since it’s a plugin for WordPress, administration can be a breeze for people who are already familiar with WordPress. Because WooCommerce is open-source, it’s highly customizable compared to other “hosted” eCommerce website options. Simply put, you “own” your WooCommerce website instead of “renting” it from another company.

“For the website rebuild, Ice Nine Online started from scratch. They handled both the design and development. The finished product is fantastic, and the ongoing work is exceptional and high-quality. I think that’s a result of their focus, day in and day out, on communication, delivery of milestones on time, check-ins, and the iterative process with the website as well as the lead generation. Their team is very proactive in communicating expectations: what we’re supposed to deliver and what they do with it, what they will deliver, just the whole timeline. So, communication is always great.”

Our Website Design Process

Have you ever been involved with a project that went off the rails? Us too. That’s why we created this process.


We research your target market, competitors, and online assets to determine the best theme for your website. We meet to discuss our research and integrate our research into your vision for the website.


Ice Nine Online designs the pages of the website, inserts content, changes visual attributes, installs plug-ins, and manipulates the website to match the vision for the site discussed in the Research Phase.


The Development Phase consists of revisions rounds, where you and Ice Nine Online review the website and collaborate on improvements over multiple revision rounds.


The website is migrated to the live web server and Ice Nine Online conducts an in-depth WordPress tutorial to ensure that you’re comfortable navigating the back-end of your website.

“Ice Nine Online is a great company to work with. They built a great website for us and helped us in an emergency when our site was hacked. Engaging them for ongoing support and web site management is an invaluable service that they provide and I wish we would used them for that from day one. “
