WooCommerce 2.5 means your shop loads faster!

If you have an online shop with us, then you’re already benefiting from the latest improvements to the e-commerce software we use, WooCommerce.

WooCommerce 2.5 – named Dashing Dolphin

The turn of the year brought a lot of updates to the software our websites use, chiefly the latest version of WordPress, 4.4, (and two security updates!) and WooCommerce 2.5.

This latest version of WooCommerce (named Dashing Dolphin – no sniggering at the back, please) is all about making online shops run faster and more efficiently, handling more customers and sales.

The changes should make a marked improvement on larger shops, but everyone should notice a difference.

But generally, a faster website is better for everyone – here’s why.
