Description

Welcome to this course, in this course we're going to take you through the whole process of building a great-looking e-commerce store. Unlike other courses we are not going to just tell you how to use a plug-in, or how to build your eCommerce store, we are actually going to take you through the whole process step by step, until we have a complete store ready to sell products. We will cover installing WordPress, downloading and activating the woocommerce plugin, adding simple and variable products, with up sells and cross sells. We will add a returns policy page, an about us page, and a contact page. Once we have our pages built we will add menus, and then demonstrate how to customize the highlight colors of your site to match your logo. By the end of this course you will have a fully functional e-commerce store ready to sell your product. 

Who is the target audience?
  • For people that would like to build an online store but don't know how
  • Anyone with a physical store that is looking for a new outlet for their products
  • Students interested in learning about the WordPress platform
  • People that are interested in eCommerce
  • Anyone creative that wants to build eCommerce sites for their customers
