That’s Why Outsourcing Your WooCommerce Maintenance Is Key for Growth

Due to its high level of flexibility, WooCommerce is by far the best eCommerce solution on the market. Not only can you customize your shop with the look and functionalities you want, but you can also host it wherever you wish. The only tricky part is that you must figure it all out and get it implemented yourself.

It’s similar to owning, say, a bakery. You choose the recipes, ingredients, and equipment as you wish, also being responsible for the actual bread production. Even if you’re a fantastic baker, who would run the bakery for you if you became too busy with the baking process?

That being said, hiring a WooCommerce maintenance & development service is equivalent to paying someone to wake up at 4 a.m. to take care of the breads. In other words, to do the dirty work for you.

To be more precise, when you hire one of our plans, we’ll handle all of the following unappealing  (but vital) duties for you:

  • Updating of Plugins, Theme & WordPress Core:

    When updating plugins, themes, and the WordPress core, there’s a chance to have some compatibility issues. You’re most likely safe, but even if there’s a 1% chance of having a problem, you’d rather be cautious than sorry. That’s why, regardless of the plan you choose, we’ll handle all necessary updates for you. When you commit your eCom to us, a malfunctioning site is just not an option. 
  • Development & Staging Sites

    Setting up a staging site is essential for testing each new update. It’s a copy of your live site where you can run any test without risking your shop.

    A premium host makes all the difference in this case, as cheaper providers do not have a ready-to-use staging tool.

    When you purchase any of the WP Autopilot care plans, you are not only assured of having staging sites, but you also do not need to worry about them at all, since we handle all testing and upgrades for you. 
  • Automatic Cloud Backups

    All of your website data will be automatically backed up to our cloud at least once per day (Starter Plan), and you can also have hourly backups, as well as “realtime WooCommerce order backups”, when you sign up for the Premium or Custom plans. 
  • Manual Site Review After Updates

    Following the testing and installation of any updates, we manually review your site to ensure there are no issues (included in all plans). 
  • Complete Malware Removal

    Every minute, around 90,000 attacks are launched against WordPress sites. Malware assaults are no joke.

    Despite such a frightening figure, if your site is frequently inspected for malware as part of its maintenance, you have nothing to worry about. This way, any potentially hazardous content will be promptly identified and eliminated.

    And, yes, all of our plans include malware scanning/removal, so you can tick this essential duty off your list as well. 
  • Speed Optimization: 

With our WooCommerce care plans, you’ll not only get assistance with upgrades and security, but we’ll also optimize your site for lightning-fast performance.

  • 24/7 Uptime Monitoring:

    We verify the uptime of all sites hosted on our servers 24/7/365. If we discover that a site isn’t loading, we’ll act immediately to restore service to it. 
  • Managed Dedicated VPS Cloud Hosting 

Managed dedicated VPS hosting (such as ours) is ideal for businesses that demand excellent speed, security, and dependability for their website or application and prefer to delegate server administration to a hosting provider. Because resources are not shared with other users, it is superior to shared hosting.

Our award-winning staff handles server management duties like server setup, security, software updates, and backups, so in addition to not having to worry about WordPress (software) maintenance, you don’t have to worry about server (hardware) maintenance either.

  • Flawless Communication

We have a dedicated team available 24/7 by phone, chat, project management app, and even direct messaging on Slack (on our Premium and Custom plans) to answer any of your inquiries.

The services listed above are what we think to be the very minimum that any WooCommerce website should have in order to work effectively. For that reason , even our most basic plan (the Starter Plan) includes all of them.

  • Discounted On-Demand Development Rate

    You’ll have access to a group of full-stack engineers who can build custom functionality on your site, adjust your theme, fix visual or functional bugs, etc (charged separately).

Premium Features

For clients with further requirements, we also provide the following extra features on our most advanced plans:

  • Database Optimization
  • Custom Code Evaluation
  • Realtime WooCommerce Order Backups
  • Premium VPS Hosting
  • Scalable VPS Hosting

Getting Started

Having saying all of that, getting started is pretty straightforward. Simply follow these three simple steps:

1. Signup

Order one of our WooCommerce care plans.

2. Onboarding

After you’ve signed up, we’ll contact you to better understand your website’s needs.

After we’ve discovered your needs and issues, we’ll work on them in combination with our routine maintenance procedure.

3. Relax

You no longer need to think about your website’s “health”. You and your team can concentrate on the business while we work behind the scenes to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Bottom Line

Taking care of your online store’s maintenance and development in-house is most likely a waste of resources, since a specialized company like WP Autopilot can handle it for an affordable price.

This way, you and your team can focus solely on what you do best—running the business and increasing its profitability—while having the peace of mind that your website is being watched 24/7, so that it will never slow down, break down, or get hacked.

We are so confident in our services that we are more than happy to offer you a free ride. We’ll manually review your WooCommerce website, suggest performance optimizations, and set your site up on our servers. You’ll be able to see first-hand how well your website can perform with our service in place.
