WooCommerce is a freemium WordPress plugin that allows you to turn your blog into a proper e-commerce site.
One of the main key points of this approach is that running the blog and the shop on the same platform allows easy content optimization of both blog posts and product pages with the well-known SEO power of WordPress.
Why CSS Hero can be the ideal solution for customizing Woocommerce-powered websites
Unless you have bought a WooCommerce-ready theme that exactly fits your styling needs, you will probably want to personalize a bit the visual aspect of the ecommerce elements of your site to match your graphical needs.
Products, Add to cart button, Checkout buttons….add your personal touch, blend the elements better with the general styling of the website, or make ’em stand out!
The WooCommerce plugin (Free version) allows for a quite limited set of personalization options.
As still in many WordPress plugins and themes, in order to edit the colours of the main elements, you will have to find and change the appropriate option, save the options, and go back to the site to see your results. Changes are not applied in real time. Finding the right color is a pick-and-test job, not the quickest if you don’t have a clear idea, but better than nothing.
How does the CSS Hero Woocommerce plugin work
CSS Hero is a live CSS editor that intercepts WooCommerce elements, allowing direct graphic customization with live feedback. That means editing and previewing in real time the desired graphical changes to your site.
This feature is especially useful to find correct color choices, but we may want to do something more: achieve a both beautiful and unique visual result that can catch the eye of your customers. Having a plain, copycat website does not help catching the attention of your customers and leading their path towards a sale.
