Unfortunately, every E-commerce websites has large numbers of individual product pages with high-quality pictures to describe products which surely will take much more space than other.

7. Follow Woo's development best practices

One of the biggest advantages of WooCommerce is that you can extend your E-commerce website by with additional modules and integrating additional WordPress plugins.

Sometimes you will need a completely customized solution which is more economic and effective in managing and using existing WooCommerce solutions. Developers should follow the latest practices to control the customized plugins. If the developer make customizations on the plugin, it may affect future updates. When a new update is released for a plugin or theme, conflicts can be occurred so that the plugin cannot work properly.

Sadly, not all developers are aware of this problem. They change the plugin functions by making the customization without caring about the update in the future. This is a common cause of maintenance issues on the WooCommerce website.
