WooCommerce Game Changer – StoreBuilder

Wow, this changes the game for anyone looking to start a WooCommerce store without all the headaches of setting up WordPress and WooCommerce. Nexcess (a cloud hosting company that is a part of LiquidWeb, think iThemes Security) has created something quite unique which they have named: StoreBuilder.

StoreBuilder takes the headache out of WooCommerce and hosting and offers a SaaS (software as a service) model for WooCommerce plus a ton of extras. This allows shop owners to fully realize the massive potential of WooCommerce with WordPress but without all the setup and potential issues. This type of service is perfect for someone who wants to start selling right now with WordPress. It is cheaper, more customizable and you own your content which is a huge win over Shopify, Wix, Square or the other store services.

StoreBuilder also lets you build a full WordPress website with or without an included page builder. You have more options than ever with Gutenberg (the default WordPress editor), Beaver Builder or Elementor. You control which plugins you want, themes, pages, posts, and everything else you would have control over if you were to put together a DIY version of WordPress and Woocommerce on your own hosting.

Honestly, the pricing is hard to beat. Try StoreBuilder risk free for 30 days https://pressavenue.com/refer/storebuilder then its $19/month

I had no idea this was included. This goes above and beyond other hosting companies I currently use. Included with your Managed WooCommerce / WordPress experience is a huge list of premium plugins that you can install simply by clicking a box. Some also require licensing which they provide after a click of a link (see the black bar?), super easy!

A few that stand out to me and make the $19/m so so cheap are:

  • Beaver Builder ($99 per year)
  • Elementor ($49 per year)
  • Pretty Links ($79 per year)
  • WooCommerce PDF Invoices / Packing Slips (starting at $29 per year)
  • ReCapture for WooCommerce / Easy Digital Downloads / Restrict Content Pro ($29 but also pricing based on the revenue it recovers)
  • Accessibility Checker
  • and more ( I didn’t include Kadence, the default, and more which are auto installed.

Totaling: $285 per year or $23.75 per month which is all included at no additional cost.

Always remember, that you can use a theme based on coffee, like the one below, for any type of store. You could sell pet products and you like the peach / green color combos. Each picture that does not apply can be switched out for one that does. One place that we always start off looking for new pictures is https://unsplash.com/ which offers commercial stock photos for free with or without credit (you decide).

As an example for our pet products store see Unsplash.com’s search page


Easily add photos, change the text of the theme, and you are ready to sell anything!

What is interesting is, as we wrap up this blog post review of StoreBuilder and all the many features that are included is we have barely scratched the surface on what is possbile with this service. I stand by my comments of a game changing store / shop expereince which allows store owners to benefit from WordPress and WooCommerce combined in a managed hosted solution.

Typically this means you don’t own or control certain aspects but in the case of StoreBuilder you do. You get the keys to castle with control over your domain (literally and figuratively).

I would love to know your comments and feed back on StoreBuilder and if you would like to see more content like this or tutorials diving deeper.
