WooCommerce is an eCommerce plugin for the [WordPress CMS]. It is the most popular eCommerce software on the internet, used to power [about 39%] of all eCommerce websites at time of writing. It’s greatest strength is it’s ease of use for shop owners and high flexibility for developers allowing it to be moulded to suit a large variety of online stores. Most of the flexibility of WooCommerce comes from extensive use of the WordPress [action and filter] system and it’s own [template system] which allows templates to be overridden in theme code.
WooCommerce is mostly developed by [Automattic].
WooCommerce is open source software. You can contribute by making pull requests at it’s [github repository]. Find out how to contribute [here].
The official [WooCommerce documentation] contains documentation for shop keepers administrating a WooCommerce powered website and developers who work with WooCommerce.
