Below given checklist points will help you prepare well for the success of your WooCommerce store.
- Enough Server Space, Including Backup
You can make a million changes to your website during its conception, but if you haven’t backed them up then they don’t matter at all. Server space is a precious element that website design incorporates. Especially for a woo commerce website that can an itinerary of tens of thousands of products, designating proper and ample server space for backup is a necessity, more than a luxury.
- Detailed Itinerary
It isn’t enough to just list your products. You need to add details to each product page, complete with a description of the product, its size, images, price and availability. For a WooCommerce front-end online store, these details are crucial because the consumers depend on these to decide if they would end up buying it.
- Transitional Checkout
There are many front-end and back-end checkout options that you can use for your online store, but what matters most is how smooth and convenient it is for your customers to make the purchase. It helps to audit this process, ironing out the snags and fixing issues before the website goes live for the viewers online.

Feedback and contact forms are two integral ways of letting your customers weigh in on your business. The relevant plugins should be tested before the launch itself. Ensure that the submissions are quick and hassle-free, there is an option for subscription to newsletters and a visible blog page and FAQs.

If you already had a WooCommerce store and are changing or transitioning it onto a new platform, ensure that all your data is packed in organized digital boxes under several categories to make the server move easier. It helps in accommodation of your data and saves you data headaches that need constant fixes, afterwards.
