WordPress is a blog CMS initially designed for blogging. Currently projects of monumental challenges are created on this CMS, such as websites for real estate agencies, Internet stores, catalogue websites and many others. In this article I would like to talk about how to create with no difficulties a simple Internet store on WordPress using Woocommerce plug-in. I think it’s the most popular plug-in for creating Internet stores.
So let’s begin with installation of the plug-in on WordPress. Download Woocommerce plug-in and unzip it. Then copy the plug-in folder to your WordPress copy, to /wp-content/plugins folder. Now log in to the administrative section and go to plug-ins part. There you should see a new plug-in and click the Activate link.
After installation click Install Woocommerce Pages.
Go to the store settings and customize it.
Create new category for our future goods.
Add a new product.
Go to the website and see our goods.
In the menu you may display product categories, add attributes to the goods. And a lot of other useful things. Set up the store to fit your needs. By default, there are only two types of payment. Others, such as Webmoney, Yandex Money, Qiwi and others can be added to Woocommerce.
In Woocommerce Internet store settings you may choose a region of the store operation, add different charges, customize delivery and so on. Woocommerce is the best solution for Internet store on the basis of WordPress. This plug-in has quite a wide variety of add-ons making the store more attractive and friendly.
