👉 What will you learn in this WooCommerce tutorial?
In the first part of this video, you will learn how to set up your hosting account at Hostinger. I highly recommend you to start your online store with a Business Shared hosting plan. With this plan, you will get a free domain name, SSL certificate, and it’s a great choice for a WooCommerce store (online stores require more resources than a regular WordPress blog)
Once, our hosting is ready we will log in to our WooCommerce website and we will start doing changes to it. You will learn how to install a theme and how to install plugins. Your WooCommerce (WordPress) theme will be responsible for the design part of your website and plugins will be used to add new functionalities to your website.
Theme and plugins used to build this WooCommerce store
Neve – https://wordpress.org/themes/neve/
Elementor – https://elementor.com/?ref=13940&campaign=Academy
Simple Social Icons – https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-social-icons/
From here we will move on to the customization part of your eCommerce website. You will learn how to customize your header, how to change colors, fonts, and how to add your logo. Once, we are done with the header you will learn how to create a footer for your online store. In a footer I recommend you add important information to your customers. It could be pages with your policies and your social media profiles.
Next, you will learn how to navigate WooCommerce and what are the most important settings. You will learn how to add payment gateways to accept payments by card and Paypal. You will learn how to add simple and variable products to your store.
🟣 Shortcodes to add to your pages:
👉 Cart Page [woocommerce_cart]
👉 Checkout Page [woocommerce_checkout]
👉 My Account Page [woocommerce_my_account]
If you will have issues with your WooCommerce cart, checkout, and my account pages add these shortcodes to your pages. 👆
Don’t forget that creating an online store is just a beginning and the whole fun part starts now. If you want to get orders to your webshop you will need to promote it. One of the best ways to do it is SEO which stands for Search Engine Optimization. If you will optimize your online store well you can expect organic sales.
