Description

Welcome to this course, in this course we're going to take you through the whole process of building a great-looking, WordPress online eCommerce store, complete with simple and variable products using the woocommerce plugin . Unlike many other courses, we are not going to just tell you how to use a woocommerce WordPress plug-in, or how to build your online 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 your products online. We will cover installing WordPress, downloading and activating the woocommerce plugin, adding both simple and variable products, including up sells and cross sells. We will add a returns policy page, an about us page, and a contact page complete with working contact form. 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 WordPress online e-commerce store ready to sell your product. 

Who this course is for:
  • 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
