Liquid Web Launches Their Marketplace Starter Plan Making It Easy to Start a WooCommerce Marketplace

Posted on | Updated:

LANSING, Mich., October 3rd, 2018 — Liquid Web, LLC, (, the market leader in managed hosting and managed application services to SMBs and web professionals, has added a WooCommerce Marketplace Starter Plan to augment their Managed WooCommerce Hosting product line, the industry’s first platform dedicated to WooCommerce Stores.

“Over the last few years we’ve seen a growing interest in creating marketplaces,” said Chris Lema, VP of Products and Innovation. “Given our expertise with WooCommerce, the logical question was whether we could help people jumpstart these marketplace sites, and that’s what we’ve done with our latest addition to our Managed WooCommerce Hosting offering. Over the last year, we extensively tested several marketplace plugins for WordPress. Our favorite and the most effective – from features to support – was Dokan from the weDevs team. So we reached out to partner with them for our marketplace launch,” said Lema.

Starting at $149, the Marketplace Starter Plan combines the power of WooCommerce with a multi-vendor extension, making it easy for marketplace owners to help people quickly and easily create stores in their marketplace. The robust plan includes Liquid Web’s Managed WooCommerce Platform, the Dokan Multi-Vendor Plugin, Jilt for abandoned cart and eCommerce emails, custom thank you pages, PayPal for WooCommerce, Beaver Builder and the Astra Pro Theme and Plugin.

“Augmenting our Managed WooCommerce Hosting portfolio with a Marketplace Starter Plan furthers our commitment to helping eCommerce customers leverage WooCommerce”, said Liquid Web CEO Jim Geiger. “We’ve taken on the hosting headaches and designed the bundle to deliver what store owners need to run an effective and great looking marketplace,” said Geiger.

The Marketplace Starter Plan joins the Liquid Web Managed Hosting WooCommerce portfolio, the only hosting solution designed specifically for WooCommerce. Plans start as low as $39 and businesses can seamlessly migrate to larger offerings depending on volume and features. To learn more about Liquid Web’s Managed WooCommerce Hosting offering visit:
