WooCommerce, the WordPress ecommerce plugin, had nearly 260,000 active sites indexed with BuiltWith, the web profiling tool. The company now has about 37,000 more sites than its next closest competitor, Magento, according to Practical eCommerce.
The BuiltWith is reporting that the number of ecommerce sites using WooCommerce has grown 452 percent since May of last year from a reported 46,897 sites to about 259,386 sites as of April 14.
BuiltWith collects data for close to 252 million domains each quarter. While this means that BuiltWith is not indexing the entire Internet, according to Practical eCommerce the numbers are still statistically significant in the same sense that surveys of relatively small samples can be used to discover tends in the larger industry.
