Why WordPress? The answers are many. The flexibility, speed, ability to expand the website to perform functions that most designers and programmers will charge thousands of dollars to include on your site. Having a WordPress Content Management system sets you free from all of that. At the very root WordPress is “an open source project” There is no single developer but thousands of them. Just like Apple and Android have developers creating “Apps” on WordPress developers create “plugins” They are almost always fully functional and free with exceptions if your wanting a higher level of use. I would highly recommend WordPress for any online store, services or blog. That conversation feature can be turned off to give you a regular E-commerce website.
