  • I have 2 stores one for UK and one for EU so my question is a separate wp for each or this multisite works for two different stores with different domains etc

    First, why do you have two different sites at all? This can’t be for languages, as there’s no one EU language. Meanwhile, things like taxes, payment gateways, shipping options, etc can be configured and dynamically set based on the buyer’s billing and/or shipping address. Also, there are plugins to configure various other localization features.

    Of course, you must have your “killer” reason for going this route 😀

    But if you’re totally new to WordPress, and you’re talking about just two sites, then I wouldn’t recommend you go the multisite route. That’s because multisite has a higher burden of administration, plus you’ll discover many plugins either don’t work with multisite at all, or require special intervention or even expensive upgrades.

    And since the e-commerce functionality of your site is from the WooCommerce plugin and not WordPress itself, I’ll recommend you pose your question in the plugin’s dedicated support forum to see what the WooCommerce developers and experienced users might say:

    https://ww.wp.xz.cn/support/plugin/woocommerce/

    NB: If you’re going to re-post your question in the WooCommerce forum, I’ll recommend you state your real reason for setting up two different sites to see if there might be a way to accomplish your business goal with a single site, which will drastically simplify things for you.

    I’m really getting stressed for days now shopify issues have destroyed our sales and its my income to feed my large young family 😚

    Whether on WordPress or Shopify, always remember there are experts who eat and breathe these “issues” daily. When your income is on the line, it might make more cents to hire an expert to fix such issues for you quickly to stop the bleeding.

    Good luck!

    Hi George

    Yes I can answer that in one word…brexit! 😅

    Our main seller is freeze dried long shelf life foods…. can’t really be exported from uk to eu, so set up a store in euros with stock in eu…. can’t be done from uk….oh but then what about the amazing shopify markets feature…. again not designed for brexit more of a cross border option….

    Yes have ax word press guy going to help in a week just trying learn more to get started 👍

    Hi!

    I would suggest to not use multisite. Better two separate sites.

    Multisite is not so easy to manage, is intended for other kind of things, and a lot of free plugins don’t work on multisite. So it is better to have a cloned store site, than a multisite.

    Best luck!
