Finally a Free WordPress E-commerce solution has arrived. I could not have asked for anything better!
Below is a video on installing the WooCommerce Plugin developed by WooThemes. The video covers installing of the plugin on a fresh wordpress installation along with a walk through all the plugin options. I will install the free theme for WooCommerce and setup the store.
Lets begin with the fresh installation of WordPress. We will first install the WooCommerce Plugin using the WordPress administrative panel. After installing the plugin, activate the same. Once the plugin is activated, browse your website’s homepage and you will find that many pages have been added. The plugin option includes the following sections: General, Pages, Catalogue, Inventory, Shipping, Tax, Shipping Methods and Payment Gateways. A thing to be noted here is WooThemes have mentioned that they will be releasing many extensions for this open source plugin. Using the plugin options you can make/add all the necessary changes and details.
Once the settings are done, we will move ahead and install the free theme – Wootique. There are also many paid themes available to choose from. Once the theme is installed and activated you are ready to add the products and other necessary details to your store.
Happy selling! For more information and download please visit the WooCommerce page.
