wordpress developmentOn Tuesday, Automattic (owner of WordPress.com) announced  that it is acquiring the team and company behind the popular WooCommerce WordPress plugin. 

According to a blog post by CEO and cofounder Matt Mullenweg :

The entire 55-person Woo team will join Automattic.  This will bring Automattic's total headcount to 370 people, distributed across 43 countries.  

Mullenweg also made a point to say that WooCommerce is an extremely profitable company. The core WooCommerce plugin is free but the company makes money selling plugin extensions, storefront themes and support. Sources close to the company said that WooCommerce's revenues are in the eight figures.

Mullenweg will also be hosting a Q&A on his blog regarding the acquisition, so users and developers can ask questions about what this means for them.
