Yes, I made that move to Etsy. But why?
Well it all has to do with the latest WooCommerce & WordPress Update which caused quite a riot for those who use the plugin for their e-commerce. In the latest update which you can read here, fixed a critical vulnerability within the plugin and WooCommerce Blocks. Even though the update was automatically installed to the website, I still choose to move the shop to protect my customers.
The vulnerability was not fully stated with that article but protecting the public is my main concern. I do not want anyone information up for grabs (and luckily, no reports of misuse or exploits were detected within Visualllee.com) so I made the move to smooth things out.
BUT I USE WOOCOMMERCE, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
- Stay with WooCommerce.
- Register your shop with WooCommerce.com if you haven’t already done so.
- Enable any WooCommerce plugins to “auto-update” to decrease your worries.
If you want to switch platforms that is totally up to you. I never had an issue before this update and the team did react swiftly to the vulnerability. The shop move was a personal choice.
