In this WooCommerce tutorial, I will show you from start to finish how to create a webshop using WordPress and WooCommerce. This eCommerce tutorial is both for people that want to create a fully functional webshop from scratch and for people that want to extend their WordPress website with a webshop.
If you start from scratch, I will show you how to get your own domain name and Webhosting. After that, we will install WordPress and WooCommerce so you can start selling products on your website.
There are 6 different kinds of products we will create:
1. A simple product with only one option.
2. A variable product where visitors have multiple options to choose from. Like size and color.
3. A Virtual product like a coaching call or a service.
4. A digital downloadable product, like an eBook, Image, Video, or any other digital file.
5. An affiliate product so you can send visitors to an external product or service using your affiliate link and when they buy the product, you get a commission.
6. A grouped product where you can sell multiple products on one product page.
We will talk about the title of your product, pricing, discount, scheduled discount, categories, subcategories, tags, featured images, gallery.
We will adjust our shop page to your wishes and add sidebar widgets like a search widget, price filter widget, category widget, featured product widget and a cart widget.
In order to boost the sales on your woocommerce website, we will talk about coupons. Coupons with discount in dollars and in percentage. Free shipping coupon codes. Coupons for specific products. We will also talk about limitations like spending at least $35 dollars for a coupon code to be valid. Or limit the amount of times people can make use of the coupon.
We will automate the whole shipping process. Based on the total weight of the cart. Or the total price. Based on where people come from. And we will encourage visitors to spend more on your webshop so they get free shipping.
I will show you how to apply taxes. How to set it up manually, with different countries, states and normal and reduced rates. I will also show you how let WooCommerce calculate the taxes automatically.
I show you how to add payment methods to your WooCommerce website so people can pay using creditcard, PayPal, klarna and other payment providers.
We will learn how to deal with incoming orders and how to change the content, look and feel of confirmation emails you send to customers.
After we make backups of our website we will learn how to import a pre made website (starter site) so you can save yourself a ton of time. At the end of the tutorial you will have a fully functional WooCommerce webshop on autopilot. They only think you need to take care of is sending the right products to the right address.
