Who is WooCommerce owned by?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 9:49 pm

WooCommerce is owned by Automattic, Inc. which is based in San Francisco, California.

PRO TIP: There is no definitive answer to this question as WooCommerce is an open source project with no clear owner. However, it is worth noting that the project is maintained by a company called WooThemes, which is owned by Automattic. As such, it is possible that Automattic could exert significant control over WooCommerce if it wished to do so.

Automattic was founded in 2007 by Matt Mullenweg and David Karp. The company has since grown to employ over 350 people and has released over 20 WooCommerce releases.
