We’re on a mission to push the boundaries of what WooCommerce can do with innovative, custom plugin and development solutions that empower businesses to make ecommerce better for everyone.


Three core values define our company and development philosophy:

Rapid Development

We take an agile approach to plugin development, initially building a Minimal Viable Product (MPV) that can be released rapidly and evolved collaboratively. This reduces your time to market, getting you online and selling faster.

Risk Reduction

Our clients enjoy a collaborative approach that encourages feedback early on in the development process. A shorter time to market means sales start today and not tomorrow, allowing you to pivot your business where necessary.

Client Communication

We value client feedback and seek it early on and during each step of the development process. This ensures the solution we build for you includes all the features your customers need and will use, and that you are thrilled with the outcome.

From the Founder

If two decades working on global ecommerce projects has taught us anything, it’s that WooCommerce is the best platform for your online business.

Launched in 2014, Progressus.io specializes in WooCommerce plugin development, complex integrations, full website builds, and custom solutions.

After starting my career at Hewlett-Packard as a programmer working on global ecommerce projects, and later working at Vistaprint helping to optimize billions of dollars in conversions, I noticed something: programmers and business people were always misunderstanding each other. All too often, programmers were solving the wrong problems because they didn’t understand the underlying business issues.

So I went back to school and completed an MBA with one goal in mind: I wanted to understand the business world so I could communicate more effectively with business people, understand their problems, and build software that bridged the gap.

In 2008, I was introduced to WooCommerce and recognized the opportunity to build a business immersed in developing truly custom ecommerce solutions — solutions that could help anyone sell online using this powerful framework.

Ten years later, Progressus.io has built valuable WooCommerce solutions for some of the world’s biggest companies. I’m proud to say that the quality of our work and the relationships we build drives repeat and referral business. There is no better measure of success.

Our commitment to WooCommerce and the open source community doesn’t stop when we clock off. We are leaders in WooCommerce, dedicated to growing a vibrant WordPress community through running Meetups and events, and supporting developer growth and education.

We know WooCommerce and you know your business better than we ever can. Together, we can create something epic. Let’s build a relationship based on collaboration, technical superiority, and pushing the boundaries of what WooCommerce can do.

If that sounds good to you, get in touch.
