We selected WooCommerce as our eCommerce platform, as it has become the gold standard for WordPress storefronts.

It has very little usable functionality to offer a customer-facing mobile app. I was brought in to help implement parts of the API that weren’t in the WordPress or WooCommerce JSON APIs.
