Use cases for WooCommerce sites

There are a variety of use cases for WooCommerce websites, from memberships and subscriptions, to making bookings and the order fulfillment process. 


Memberships allow you to create an entire membership system that is seamlessly tied to your store.

You can restrict your content to members, but you can also control the gradual distribution of that content over time, to schedule when members have access. Integrating WooCommerce membership into your site also sells access to memberships, include memberships with product purchases, manually assign memberships, and add member perks within your store.


You can create and manage products with recurring payments — payments that will give you residual revenue you can track and count on.

WooCommerce Subscriptions allows you to introduce a variety of subscriptions for physical or virtual products and services. Create product-of-the-month clubs, weekly service subscriptions or even yearly software billing packages. You are also able to add sign-up fees, offer free trials, or set expiration periods.

A subscription-based model will allow you to capture more residual revenue — and all you have to do is ship the orders.

Selling of tickets

You have the ability to take control of your own ticket sales with WooCommerce and sell tickets directly on your site without third party ticket fees. There are a few plugins for selling tickets on you’re site, that help you to collect custom attendee information (t-shirt size, lunch preference…), offer complete ticket inventory management and allow tickets to be delivered to attendees via email, support QR codes for attendee check-in and support free and premium events. They also offer internationalized translations for multiple languages.

Product Vendors

If you have an existing site and loyal community, and would like to find ways to diversify your revenue, or would you like to start an eCommerce business without having to invest in creating your own product line, you can turn your store into a multi-vendor marketplace. You can instantly turn a WooCommerce powered store into a marketplace complete with multiple vendors, products and payout settings.

You can decide to allow multiple vendors to sell their products on your site and in return take a commission on sales to cover the costs of managing the site while you focus your efforts on building a community.

Paying deposits

With WooCommerce Deposits, your customers can put down a deposit for your services or use a payment plan for products you specify.

This powerful and flexible tool allows you the ability to create custom payment plans, with variable percentages and intervals. Customers are guided through the process of paying for items as they browse and checkout, with easy-to-follow visuals.


WooCommerce Bookings can help you do amazing things, whether your goal is to sell time, accept appointments online, or rent products.

There are some creative, fun businesses that are using Bookings to power stores and bring their unique ideas to life such as a travelling photo booth housed in a vintage VW van to a mobile handmade ice cream parlour for ice cream on demand.

Let your customers book reservations, appointments or rentals on their own – no phone calls required. Save yourself time and fill up your calendar by letting your site do the work for you.

Whatever options you want to offer to your customers, Bookings makes it possible:

  • Define set options, like fixed time slots for an appointment , class or guided tour
  • Let customers choose the times that work best by giving them the flexibility to book whatever range they need, like checking into a hotel

With either option, you can also block time off as un-bookable, leaving you time to take care of your other priorities and create buffers between bookings, to make sure the schedule works for you.

Order bar codes

WooCommerce Order Barcodes generates unique barcodes for every order placed on your website. These barcodes can be used on e-tickets, e-reservations, packing slips or anything else that would benefit from having a barcode that can scan attached to it.

Barcodes can be created as one of five different types (from standard barcodes to QR codes) and can be scanned and processed directly on your site. Customers will receive their barcodes by email so they can be easily printed out where necessary.

Store owners will also be able to view and print out barcodes.

Using the built-in barcode scanner, you can quickly complete orders or check customers in – this allows you to use the barcode as a robust (yet simple) e-ticket solution for any type of event, booking or reservation.
