This makes our WooCommerce maintenance company the perfect choice to provide all your ecommerce website services, including WordPress upgrades, WooCommerce theme updates, plugin updates, page speed fixes, product page improvements, malware removal, and routine site updates.
You'll enjoy working with our agency for your WordPress maintenance and support services because of the emphasis we put on availability and communication.

The starting price for our website maintenance services is $119.50/hour, but we offer discounts for pre-purchased blocks of time that bring the rate as low as $99.95/hour.
If you purchase a website maintenance retainer, there are no contracts, hidden fees, expirations, or minimum deductions.
