Setting up an ecommerce store can be tedious: Search for a domain. Choose the right hosting solution. Find the best plugins. Optimize the store to serve customers without glitches. And then, if everything goes right, start selling.
That’s a lot of work, minus the fact that plenty can go wrong in the process.
On top of everything, the global pandemic set a clear precedent last year: you have to have a stream of passive income in case things go wrong! Hence, after the financially destructive 2020, more people than ever before are leaning towards launching mom-and-pop online stores, but sadly, the complexity of the whole process can deter them from their dreams.
You need a solution that leaves the complexities of hosting behind and lets you launch an online store with ease.
The solution should ideally be fast, simple, and so convenient that it feels like… magic? Yes, here at Cloudways, we believe that whether you’re a store owner or shopper, everyone’s online experience should be magical!
And we’ve built the perfect solution to help you launch your WooCommerce store and start delivering experiences that your customers can’t forget!
Introducing the Starter Bundle for WooCommerce
Your feedback matters a lot at Cloudways. Many of you first-time ecommerce store owners or agencies looking for a quick solution to launch WooCommerce stores have expressed how difficult it is to launch an online store, and we listened and committed to finding the best solution.

What’s in the Bundle?
We put a lot of deliberation into picking each plugin for the bundle because we wanted to nail three elements that make a winning WooCommerce store: Performance. Speed. Reliability.
