Is WordPress safe for an E-commerce website?

Firstly, this platform wasn’t primarily made for e-commerce, but its’ not the worst idea to build your store with the help of this platform. And what about safety, the answer is no. Cause a lot of websites are running WordPress. And due to this, the level of popularity is the reason why most hackers try to hack WordPress websites. But the reason can be also that the owner has done low security for his website.

WordPress is a safe platform for your eCommerce website as long as you’ll put sufficient measures in place to keep your site secure. It needs to be maintained, optimized on a regular basis. Don’t forget to install the latest updates of all your plugins, themes, and WordPress itself to maintain the safety and security of your online business. If you have already done this, you are on the way to success!

  • Yes, I’ve been a WordPress developer for almost ten years now (WordPress is about 11 years old) and have used WP for many eCommerce sites. In fact, you may not know it, but WordPress is actually the most popular Content Management System in the entire world. It is used by Walt Disney, MSNBC, BBC America, the Rolling Stones, the Government of Sweden, Brown University, and even some banks as well.

    We’ve built many eCommerce sites using WordPress and have never had any issues of any kind, so please know it comes down to what you want to do, how you want to do it, and the business model behind the action that matters much more.

    Good luck!
