WordPress and WooCommerce can be used in a DSGVO-compliant manner. An extension is required for this. Either B2B Marketing or WooCommerce Germanized.
WooCommerce is also a powerhouse for the sale of regulated products, such as alcohol and / or tobacco products. In conformity with the law, a notice is attached to the corresponding products and it is pointed out that these products may only be purchased from a certain age. During the payment process, this information must be confirmed twice.
For certain products, the ingredients must be declared. Of course, this is also possible.
How are shipping costs calculated?
The shipping costs can be calculated as a flat rate or by weight. Furthermore, a differentiation by region is possible.
You want to sell not only to end customers but also to resellers? That is also possible with just one shop. The system can be set so that end customers and resellers see different prices and different quantities. For example, it is possible that resellers can only buy in bulk, while end consumers buy in small quantities - ultimately at a different price. Furthermore, the system is set so that end customers see the prices with VAT and resellers see the prices without VAT.
Depending on what you offer in your WooCommerce shop, it can make sense to sell products and services by subscription. We would say that subscription selling, is in the royal class of selling. After all, this is how automated payments are received on a monthly basis. With the appropriate additional software, this is also possible without any problems. The subscription can be set up as desired, e.g. in the first step the subscription is free of charge, only after further use, after a certain period of time, it becomes chargeable.
