WordPress eCommerce with WooCommerce

Become a WooCommerce master in under 90 minutes, and also discover when you are better off with another type of cart

This course takes you step-by-step through the process of adding a shopping cart to your WordPress website and collecting money for your products or services.

We start by reviewing the most common shopping cart systems used on WordPress websites. We explore when you should choose a WordPress shopping cart plugin (such as WooCommerce) and when you would choose another type of cart (such as, a hosted cart solution).

Then we discuss various WordPress cart plugins, leading up to a thorough review and demonstration of the recommended solution, WooCommerce.

Then we proceed towards mastery of WooCommerce, as follows:

The Quick Start Section shows you all the basics: shop page layouts and shortcodes, adding products and images, the checkout process for digital downloads and shippable products, PayPal configuration, and more. We also discuss the themes that will work best.

The Reference Section goes into more detail, including the advanced products types & shipping methods, taxes and tax classes, coupons, order & inventory management, product reviews and more.

And finally the WooCommerce Styling and Programming Section provides more advanced information (some of it for programmers, but presented for a non-programming audience) on creating your own email templates, working with Actions and Hooks, and CSS styling of your site.

This is the most comprehensive, impactful and to-the-point WordPress eCommerce course on the web. Why? Because:

  1. We only show you what you need to know. WooCommerce leads the other WordPress shopping carts by a wide margin. There is rarely any need to choose another shopping cart plugin (except for simple PayPal sites, which we cover as well). So why waste your time?
  2. The videos are quite comprehensive -- for instance we show you the exact steps to take to configure PayPal to properly accept your digital download orders.
  3. Our professionally-produced videos get to the point. We will save you hours of research and trial & error.
