With every skipped WordPress, WooCommerce or plugin update, the odds stack up against your ecommerce store. Eventually and without warning, your store will fail. You’re also leaving the door open to hackers who might sneak through your security gaps first.
You could periodically roll the dice with WordPress’ single-click update feature. It’s better than doing nothing, but the experts say the feature carries a 50/50 risk of errors. You might be lucky this month but no coin always comes up heads.
When you’re in the unlucky 50%, you could (but usually won’t) bring down your whole store. What’s almost certain, however, is that your customers will find the errors before you do.
