WP Engine just rolled out a new Live Cart for their ecommerce solution for WooCommerce which is powered by their reliable managed WordPress hosting platform.
New Live Cart
As the name suggests, Live Cart updates the shopping cart for each visitor in real time, without affecting performance. By using the cache to keep the cart data accurate, the extra calls to pages that don’t use the cart are eliminated. That way you get the best of both worlds!
Pages in your WooCommerce store load up to 1.5 seconds faster, allowing you to sell to more concurrent customers without experiencing downtime during busy sales events like Black Friday or Cyber Weekend. A faster, more stable connection means more sales for your business.
If this is of interest to you, you should check out WP Engine’s eCommerce plans. They offer you the following features for a high performance WooCommerce store: Performance-optimized virtual machines with dedicated resources, EverCache for WooCommerce, Instant Store Search, Smart Plugin Manager, and Genesis Pro eCommerce Block Editor, smart scale options, and much more.
