Scalability

Woocommerce scales with ease, but of course, this depends if a suitable caching system is in place, and product attributes have been well planned before the development. Woocommerce will, however, start to consume heavily on server resources when products are purchased. This is because more calls are being made to the server at this stage of the users buying experience. Realistically, server resources are increased at this stage within any eCommerce platform. To rectify this problem, it is recommended that the websites server is upgraded (when needed). From experience, Woocommerce works well with stores with 100,000 products or less. A store with over this amount of products should look for alternative eCommerce solutions, such as the Magento platform.

WooCommerce Security

While no eCommerce platform can be 100% secure, Woocommerce is as secure as any other equivalent solutions available today. As long as the platform has been developed as per WordPress security guidelines.
