Book Description

Building an online store is often considered to be a difficult and complex task. Using the combination of WordPress and the WooCommerce plugin, this is no longer the case. WooCommerce is built using WordPress best practices both on the frontend and the backend. This results in an efficient, robust, and intuitive plugin. Learn to use this strong e-commerce solution and set up your own web shop in just a couple of hours.

Building E-Commerce Solutions with WooCommerce is a practical guide that delivers the knowledge you require to set up and get going with WooCommerce. This book also shows you how to choose a WooCommerce theme and set up different payment methods, in addition to helping you to keep a bird’s-eye view of incoming sales and reviews, stock levels, general store performance, and statistics from the WordPress dashboard.

You will start by installing WooCommerce and exploring the WooCommerce settings. Then, you will move on to creating and adding simple and complex products, and also set up payment and shipping methods. Once your store is up and running, you will learn how to process your orders, look at the reports, and even expand the functionality further with additional plugins. Finally, the book shows you how to choose a WooCommerce theme and adjust the theme settings.
