1. Introduction WooCommerce: hi guys, and welcome to the Wu Coomer section off the course. Now, if you're looking to learn how to sell items on your website and turn your website into an online shop, well, then you are at the right section. So let's dive deeper into this. All right, so let's talk about who Coomer's, what it is, what the benefits are with it, how we're going to be using it. It said. It said Robert, let's start from the beginning. What is woo gamers? Well, woo comers is just a word for us. Plug in. We've gone through WordPress plug ins before, right, and this plugging is going to allow you to sell different items on your website by installing all of the necessary features such as a shop page such as adding payment gateways. Such is adding the add to cart function, it said, etcetera. It's gonna make sure that you'll be able to sell items adding items your customers can go in, they can pay you and you can send them whatever they said they are buying and welcome. Er's makes this process so simple. So when we're adding our products, it's going to be looking something like this and you can see it's a very nice and very clean display off whatever product they're might be. You're also going to be able to customize what you want to show, for example, the name, for example, the rating, even the location if you would like to, and you're also be able to sort by location by price by whatever it might be. And when you click on any certain products, it's going to look something like this where you'll be able to add a description about the product and really make sure that you sell the benefits off the product itself and not the features. This is a cooperating thing. You sell the benefits and not the features. Okay, so this is how Woo comers looks in its simplicity, and it is also effective. In fact, it's so effective that currently 40% or more off all current e commerce is are using who commercial and on e commerce is basically just another name for an online shop. Now these numbers probably not set in stone. I've seen some studies show how your usage and some show a lower usage, but the point is still that Ah lot off people, and a lot of businesses are using woo comers and for good reasons. Now, probably the primary reason would be that it's actually super easy. It's so accessible to me, to you, to anyone around, because you install it and, well, you're not really good to go. But it's so easy to learn to learn how to set up your product to set up your payment. And then you can start making money from your website. It's absolutely incredible how powerful the feature it's, and with it you'll be able to sell anything. Now you can add in simple product, like if you want to sell a sofa, get out in the sofa. You can also sell variable products. So, for example, if you're selling a T shirt, you can sell it in a multitude of colors. You can sell it in different sizes. This is called a variable product because it has a different variables to it. You'll be able to sell group products. You'll be able to sell services. Maybe you're offering coaching to someone, or you're a personal trainer or whatever it might be. You'll also be able to sell. Digital products may be on E book. It could be a course and even etcetera, etcetera. Basically, the sky is the limit when it comes to what you're able to sell in here. It's an extremely versatile plug in that allows you to basically sell anything on the website that you now already have created. And the final thing about why I love woo comers so so so much is because it is a complete solution. And what I mean, what a complete solution is that it's super easy to use to set up. It has over 100 different payment gateways, meaning there's a lot of different ways that people will be able to pay on. They have development teams working for this because over 40% of online stores are actually run on wu comers. So there's a lot of developers making sure that this is completely up to date, and this is running the way that it should be. And also woo commerce is incredibly safe. They're using all of the latest and most important safety measures, and if you have been following along in the course from earlier from the WordPress course, you will know just how important safety is for your website. So if it wasn't understood already, me and desperate love woo comers is a super powerful and useful tool. And now we're gonna learn more in depth, how to use it so that you'll be able to sell anything that you'd like to on your website. So see in the next lecture, guys. 2. Basic Setup: Alright, guys. So in this lecture, we're gonna go ahead and start with the basic set up for Woo commers where we're gonna install it, we're gonna set the basic settings and then we're gonna make sure that we actually have the shop I can in our menu. Right? So let's get started. I am at the back end of her website. I've gone to plug ins, add new, and now I'm just gonna go ahead and search for woo commerce. And here we have it with over four million active installations. It's crazy and it's by automatic, and we already know that the automatic is a part of the wordpress dot com team. So this plug in is going to get a lot of love. So we're going to click on install now and then activate. So the first thing that's most likely gonna happen is that is going to be throwing you into the set up wizard, and this one is very useful. It's very handy, however, because they want to go through the plugging more thoroughly with you. I'm gonna go ahead and go down to not right now. And I recommend that you do the same because it's gonna be easier for me to teach you about this plugging ass we go rather than said everything up right here and right now. So we're not gonna go ahead and run the set up. We start instead, we're going to get started manually. And we're going to do that by going down to woo comers, which we now have added to the side here. And then we're gonna go to status. And then we're gonna go up here where it says tools and we're going to click on the tools and then we're gonna scroll down until we say something that says, Let's see here ago, create the default woo comers pages And this is gonna be the shop page, the add to cart, the all of the necessary pages in order for us to have our shop. So I'm gonna go ahead and click on create pages, Perfect. All missing newcomers, pages successfully installed. So now if I go to page is up here and I click on all pages, we'll see that we have added a cart page. We have a check out page and we have a my account page, and we also have a shop page. So we have all of the necessary pages in order for us to have our woo commerce and now also recognised to some here since elementary. Others. Dustin, if you want to be editing your wu comers with L. A mentor, that is a pro feature, and it really doesn't make life easier, but it is not necessary. But if it is interesting, will help you out with that at the end off the course at the bonus lecture. But for now, let's move on. Now, the next thing that we're gonna want to do is go down here to woo commerce and then move over to set things were going to set up some basic settings before we get started and creating our first product. Right? So the first thing we have here is that we want to write in the address, and this is gonna be the address off your shop, right? And this isn't very important for woo comers to calculate the taxes, to calculate the distance, the possible shipping, etcetera, etcetera. So the first thing that you're gonna want to do it's adding the address, add in your country in here and make sure that everything is set up right? For privacy, reasons are not going to set that up right now. And then we also have the general options. Where will you be selling will be selling to all of the countries in the world or just to specific countries. You can go ahead and just add those in that you will be selling to. But for now, we're gonna set to all countries and then we have shipping locations. Where will you be shipping to? Will you be shipping toe all of the countries you sell to or Onley to specific countries? Now, you might be selling to the entire world because you hav e products, right? You have, for example, a digital e book. But you might also physical product that you only sell to certain parts of the world because of shipping because of profitability, etcetera, etcetera. You can set that up here and then we have the default customer location. In other words, how we want to calculate and see where the customer is from so that they will have some basic setting set up for them for, for example, the shipping time to the more certain shipping costs that we could use the shop based address in here. No location or geo locate. And Geo locate generally is going to use their i p address to figure out where they are coming from. And then there are more settings in here, for example, taxes and coupons. But we're going to go through all of that later on in the course. So we're not gonna be setting up all of these right now. Only the basic wants. Okay, so we're going to scroll down to the currency options, and then we have the currency, and this is gonna be the currency that will be displayed at your web shop, right? So if you're selling to, for example, primarily an American audience based, you're gonna want to use dollars. Now, if you're selling primarily in Europe, you're gonna want to use euro, for example. Now we're gonna go ahead and search for United States and used us dollar For this, we're also going to use the lift occurrence of position that's the most common and most comfortable usually and then we can do these minor details. 2000 separate the decimal separator and number off decimals. But when all of this is set, we're gonna click on Save it changes and then we're going to scroll up and we're going to click on products and there's a lot of fun stuff to be setting up in here, but we're not gonna go through all of that now, But we are gonna go through the weight itself now if we're going to be selling to primarily on, American audience would probably wanna use pounds right now. If we're going to be more international, we're gonna want to use kilos. And also it's the same is true with the dimensions we're gonna want to use, the one that's basically most comfortable for our customers, just knowing from the analytics where our customers are coming from now. You don't want to, for example, use pounds and then use the dimensions in centimeters because it doesn't really make sense . You want to be consistent. Today, views killers use centimeters or if you're using pounds, then go ahead and use the inches or yards etcetera. They're used in other countries, and when you're done with that, we're gonna go ahead and click on save changes. So the final thing we will do now is to go ahead and add the shop part the shop in the menu so that people can actually access your shop, right, Because we have the pages, but we don't have them set out anywhere yet, So we're gonna go ahead and go down to appearance, and then we're gonna go to menus and then to the left. Here, we're going to click on shop like that and then click on add to menu. And now we just place it where we want to be placing. And now I'm gonna place it right after blood. Not like that, because then it gets on under section of the blood. They would go just like this and then click on save menu. So top made many has been updated. Now we're gonna go ahead up here, which is Robin and Jesper and click on visit sites. Notice that we now also have this It's store and here we are and you'll notice that Look at this. Now we have the A product card, which is really exciting rights. So we have a Cardiff for when our customers and where we are actually adding in products. But more importantly, we actually added the shop part that is right here. So if I go ahead and likely gonna shop right now, we're going to be taken to the Shope part off our website, right? And it doesn't look that impressive right now. First of all, the sidebar is on the left. That, for me is extremely uncomfortable. And also, this is completely empty. So in the upcoming lectures, I'm gonna show you how to add products, how to customize the sidebar, the looks and everything. But once again, if you have grown comfortable with using elemental er, this is a pro feature in elementary that you'll be able to use design and play with Wu commerce. If you know elementary, you'll know how to use will comers with it. You can go ahead and check out the bonus section to learn more about that. But if not, we're going to go through all of that in the upcoming lectures on how to do it without elementaries. So let's move on to the next lecture and add in our first product, Casey of their guys 3. Create a Simple Product: all right. In this lecture, we're gonna go ahead and add our first product, which is going to be a simple product. Now I'm gonna show you exactly what I mean with a simple product. So let's get started. All right. So this is how our shop is looking right now. Not very impressive, right? There is nothing here. And don't worry about the sidebar. In the next lecture, we're gonna go through what we can do with this side bar. Okay? How we can remove it. Now what we're gonna go ahead and do is at our first product, which is going to be a gaming mouse. Right? So if you don't have any products off your own that you're wanting to add that I am going to put some pictures in the resource is so you can go ahead. If you want to do some practicing yourself for adding products. Now, I'm going to keep the shop open so I can show you the changes asked. I go and I'm also gonna have a tab open here for the back end of our website now, but I'm gonna go ahead and do is right below here, which is root commerce. We're gonna go to products and then I'm gonna click on add new and in here I'm going to write the product name which we're gonna call Gaming Mouse. Right? And now I'm just gonna go ahead and click on Publish. There we go. So now if I goto our shop right here and I update this page, we can see that we have just added our first product. Isn't that exciting? So here's our first product. It's a gaming mouse, were able to read Mawr and click on this. Obviously, there's no bite button right now, So this is our first product. It's not looking too exciting right now. And if I click in on it, we get to this point right. We can see the category test. We can see the reviews, but there's really nothing mawr going on here right now. So this is what we're about to be customizing now. If we go back to the back end of for a website where basically love the magic is happening , the first thing we can do is write a product description and there's gonna be a long product description. And in here, you basically want to write. Every single thing about the product is going to be important. And I'm just gonna go ahead and grab some piece of takes just to use as an example for this . All right, so I just grab some piece of text. Now you want to write your own product description? Off course is just as an example. I'm gonna go ahead and click on update. And now let's go ahead and shake it out the way it looks on our shop on a product page. So this is the description I'm talking about. Now, this is ending up in this piece of the description. You can call this the long description now, before we only had reviews. Now we have a description in here as well. If we go back, there are a multitude of other things that we can be playing around with. We're not going to use the ocean WP settings nor the U. S s CEO, So I'm gonna collapse thes ones and below here we have something known as product data, and this is what I was talking about early about a simple product. Now a simple product is basically a product that's not going to have any additional variations, too. So a variable product, for example, which is here, which we're going to go through in a couple of lectures. That's gonna be if you're having, for example, you're selling a T shirt and it has different sizes. Or if we were selling a gaming mouse that had different colors, for example, now that would be a variable product because that same product would have multiple variables. But we're gonna use a simple product for this lecture. Meaning you see, what you get is what you see. There's not gonna be in a variations and sizes or colors or anything, so we have a couple of options right here. We have the virtual and downloadable, and we're gonna go through them in upcoming lectures. So I'm going to show you the primary settings for simple product, and then we're gonna add in more set things as we go. So if there's something along the way that we're missing, don't where we will be going through it. So the first thing we have is the regular price, right? What is the price we want to set? We could set, say, 24 99 as an example, but we could also put this up for sale at, say, 2199 right now. So if I go ahead and I update this right now and of course, update this page, we get to see the price here to the right than now. Since we also set a price, we also had have the add to CART possibility and the quantity possibility here as well. Now, there are a lot of options in here for us to edit. And the next thing we could be editing would be the sale itself. Now, right now, we have set a sale. We haven't said in a particular date for it or anything, but we could schedule it. Meaning we want to sail to start from, you know, whenever. And we wanted to end whenever. So let's say that we started it from the 27th today. We could put it to the 30th. There would be a three day sale. So that means that you don't have to keep an eye out for this. The sale is gonna end after a certain period. You could have a flash sale for 24 hours. You could have a week sale a month, whatever you would like to. But it's very handy to be able to schedule it like this. I'm just going to click on cancel their and next up we have the inventory. And the first thing you're going to see is the SK Year, which means stock keeping units. And this is gonna be a unique i d for the product. And this unique idea is gonna be internal meaning that is on Lee for your own logistics is just gonna make sure that all of your products has a unique I. D. Ok, it's not universal, It's not international. None of that is only for you. But there are a couple of really good practices you could be using here. So let's say, for example, that this was the mouse we were selling, right? If we went down and we checked out there s key, you know, remember, this is their own personal sk you. We could go ahead and copy this and actually added into our own sq. The benefit of this would be that certain customers who are going to be wanting to buy this gaming mouse from them assuming was selling the same product here. If they are searching for the product by the sq in Google, for example, this means that our product is going to be popping up as well. And if we are competitive in our prices looking, for example, a general was settling for 29 99 they are selling for 22 87. That means that most likely there actually going to come to our website to buy this product on Lee because we were clever enough to use to escape you that other sellers are using as well for the same product, meaning there's a higher chance that they're gonna come to us instead. Now you don't have to use SK you, but I strongly, strongly strongly recommend that you do, because as time goes and you start getting more and more items, you're gonna want to keep on eye on them and want to have a unique i d. For them. With that said, If you're not copying someone else's or you're selling completely your own product like a digital product, for example, or a service, you might want to give it a unique esque, even all you need to do is type it in, but there are some best practices for this as well. For example, always start with a one. The number one don't start with zeroes. That's just confusing, because once we start using variables, let's say for this mouse were using M o M o you and I would write 10 one. Is this sk you? They would mean that this could signal that it is a mouse and the one that it is product number one for mouth and also that it would be a variable number one shoot. We'd be using variables. So if we had another color, we would just go ahead and add that other color to to the next color to three four. Or if it was another size or whatever. It's just some best practices now. So other things you might also want to think about is the using certain numbers or letters . So if you're using an oh, that's very easily confused with a zero, so you might only want to go with em. You won a one like that because there's going to be less confusion and list risk for mixing up, especially if you're starting to mix up, you know, numbers and letters as you go. So there's some best practices for the SK. You and I strongly recommended you use them even though you don't have to. But for variable, you will need to, but for simple you don't. But I still recommend that you do. And then we can manage our stock. How many do we actually have in stock that we can be selling now? You don't need to manage your stock. If it would be a digital download, for example, because with digital products there's an endless supply. But if you're selling something physical like a gaming most if we are right now, we're probably gonna want to regulate our stock. So let's say that we have 10 mouses or mice. They will want to sell right now. And we would just write 10 in stock quantity right here. Then we have the option for back orders and back orders. Basically means are you gonna allow your customers too place an order even though they are not in stock? We can either do not allow like that. And if I put it to this and I updated and then update this page as Well, you're going to see that Now we know that we have 10 off these products. If I go ahead and I go to 11 like that and I try to click on add to cart is gonna say value must be lesser equal to 10 because there just aren't that many, right? Just gonna be a warning. You're not gonna be able to buy all of those products. But now if we go back, for example sorry and we go back to inventory and we would change this to allow about notify customers, then they will get a notification that you can order, But they're not in stock. And that's just implying that Hey, it's gonna take longer, right? You don't always know when you will be getting back in stock. So if I go with this settings and I click on update and then updates here, a swell, we can see that it says 10 in stock can be back. Order right. But we can also going back to inventory. We can also just click on allow. And this is a little bit risky because if you could, can allowing you get a lot of orders, for example, and you are out of stock. That's just means that your customer is going to be expecting a quick delivery, but you won't be able to live up to that. But you need to make sure that if you are using these settings, you really need to stuck up as quick as possible. Right? And then we have the low stock threshold. When are you gonna get an email and warning off? Hey, we're low on stock. So, for example, if you were selling 100 of these, you might want to get a warning. When you are on about list your like that 20 or something. So you know that Hey, it's time to stock up again, right? We're gonna put this back to 10 and we're gonna keep this a two right now. So about 20%. But this is highly individual and then also sold individually enabled is to only allow one of the items to be bought in a single order you could be using is if you're having some certain sales, for example, some promotional sales. You want to spread this out to a lot of people, but otherwise this is just gonna limit sale so I personally wouldn't be using this, Okay? And then we moved down to shipping, and here we have the weight to be adding it. So let's say that this mouse ways 0.4 now, maybe that's very heavy from mouths. I actually don't really know how much they wait. Let's assume that it 0.2 right and they have certain that manager. But I'm just gonna use to wait for now. So if I go ahead and update this and update this, we can see that we now have descriptions and this newly additional information here and also reviews. And remember, from the beginning, we only had the reviews. Now we have the description that we added, and we have the additional information's where we have put in the weight. We would also have the measurements had we added those in there. Okay, so let's scroll back down. Let's go back to shipping right here and let's move on. To linked products now for link products is going to be the possibility to do up cells and cross cells which are highly effective techniques in order to get more sales, and we're not going to go through that here. We're going to go through the later on in the course, But this is a very effective technique to really increase all of your sales pretty much. Then we're gonna move down to act tributes, and we're going to go through this as well later on in the course we have advanced. And now this is a purchase note and a purchase notice gonna be when they complete an order , it's gonna be a small section there. This is purchase note. And here you could be adding in anything like thank you from buying from us Will be sending out your delivery tomorrow. Or if you're using a digital product, for example, you could be putting in the download link in the purchase note for your customers in here, which is a very effective practice. Then we also have the menu order and the menu order is how you want the items to be arranged. So it's gonna be displaying the lowest numbers on top. So if I would write one for this than this would be placed in the top among all of your items came and then reviews, it won't enable them or not. Now, if I click this off? It goes without saying an update that by updating this s well, this review section down here is going to disappear. So you're not gonna be able to put any reviews your customers not gonna be able to put into reviews for your products. And generally, Social proof really, really helps you increase your sales. So I can strongly recommend that you use reviews. With that being said, some certain products that might be controversial, that might be highly need. For example, some people might love it. Others might not love it so much. They are some best practices for removing your reviews as well. But generally it's a very, very good idea to keep your reviews activated in in check like this. Okay, now scrolling down even further. We do have a product short description. So if I just go ahead and I add in a short description here, I'm just gonna pace one in that I have copied from elsewhere again. You really want to write these yourself and highlight the benefits of what you're selling. If I go ahead and I add in the short description in here, scroll up, click and update and updates here as well. You're going to see that the short description actually turns up right up here. Right? So this is really the chance to be selling the product to be explaining exactly what it is and why your customers are going to need it are are going to want it. So this is an amazing cell opportunity for the to use the short description for. So this is where the short description ends up in this section over here, and the long description is going to be ending up down here. Okay, so here, basically here, you wanna put in all of benefits, and here you might want to put in some more features, features being the practical things. Like the DP I of the mouse decides the weight off the mouse, the practicability off the mouth. And here you might want to add the benefits, for example, is great for gamers. Makes the experience much smoother, much more fun. It said Rex etcetera. So the benefits are much more emotional, and the features are much more practical. Okay, so we have added in a lot of stuff. We even have the sq here, but we still have it on categorized, right? So it's not putting in a category right now. So if we go ahead and we go back and go to the right, we have our product categories right here. So if I click on adding new, I might want to add in. For example, let's say we're doing a gaming section, I might add in gaming like that, and I pressed Enter. So here we have the gaming. That means that I can remove the on categorized like that. And let's say that I want to add in a subcategory to this. I would hadn't Mouse's, for example, and I would put that as a child category that's called at meaning that the game is going to be the parent categories. If I add this in right now, we can see that it gets underneath the gaming category. So the game and categories going to be the main and this the mouse is gonna be an extension off the game in category. It's a great way to keep the navigation so much easier on your website and in your shop now scrolling down. We also have the product tags that sex itself. We're going to be a little more in depth. So here, for example, we might want to write in things like seven D. I'm gonna do a coma to add in more ergonomic 2000 DP I etcetera, etcetera. And then I hit enter and all of these were going to be different tags. So if someone is searching for ergonomic, for example, this is gonna put up someone search for seven D is gonna pop up 2000 dp I than that is gonna pop up, Okay. And then, of course, we have our product image. Now, this is such an important part. You really need to make sure that you're using high quality images. Otherwise, people are going to be turned off now, images of one of the biggest selling points when ever your selling products, even if it is digital products. So we're gonna go ahead and click on set product image, and I have already taken the liberty to upload a couple of images and all of these images I'm gonna put in the resource is asked, Well, so you can play around with them and set up your own practice items. If you don't currently have your own to be setting up right now. So I'm gonna go ahead and click on this one. I set it up and you want to set your title properly, So if you have a certain name for it, you're gonna want to set it, okay? And then I'm gonna click on sit product image like that. So now if I scroll up and I click on update and then I update the shop itself, the product page, we get the image off the product itself. This is starting to look really, really good, isn't it? So I'm already loving this now again, if you're it is liking this. Don't worry about it. I'm just liking it. You're gonna take care of it in the next lecture, but I'm really, really loving this right now, so it looks so nice and so professional. Now, what you also might want to do is adding a gallery off your images. So, in their words, says they Prada gallery, you can click there, and you can add in multiple pictures like this This this, this and this. Right? So all you need to do if you're on a Mac, you hold down command and I believe if you're on a piece, you just hold down shift and you click the meaning. You want to give them sensible names, like instead of gaming mouse to you might want to say gaming mouse back, for example. And this one, you might write gaming, mouse Side like that. And also make sure to put these in the alternate takes like that because the alternate Texas also gonna be showing up in for the product itself. So we're gonna go ahead and add all of these to the gallery. Right now. I'm not gonna be adding in all of the all takes because this is a display. But for you, that's gonna be important, right? So I'm gonna click on, add to gallery and then click on updates and then go to our product page update this and we can see that we're getting a bunch of different images. Writers. If I click on it, we can see these showing up. And if I click on this enlargement glass here, you can see that the text that we wrote in the gaming mouse back it's being displayed in the very bottom here. Right? So this is why it's so important to set the title not only because it's going to be displayed here the title on the all text, but also for Seo purposes. But it is not being displayed when it comes to these pictures like this. Okay, so I am super happy about this. This is our simple products set up. And I think it looks really, really nice again. If you don't have your own product to set up right now, I'm gonna add all of these images that I'm using here in the resource is so you can play around in practice with this ass. Well, in the next lecture, we're gonna go ahead and talk about the sidebar, but you can do about it, remove it. And also in the next lecture from that, we're going to start setting up or variable products. So see, in the next lecture, guys 4. Create an Affiliate Product: All right, my friends, in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to create an affiliate product and add that into our shop. Let's get started. All right. So you know the drill. We're gonna go up here to New we're going to click on a product, and we could call this something like premium hosting. So for this example, we're gonna use an affiliate link for Blue Host as an example. Now, off course, the affiliate could be to anything. So if you're having a specific website for a product of for a service, it's gonna make a lot of sense to perhaps have an affiliate link towards that product or service as well. So if you are a Web designer, perhaps you want to use it on a feeling maybe two elementary, if you're using that, its head etcetera. So for this, we're gonna use premium hosting called that name the product to that, and we're going to be using Blue host. So, as usual, you're gonna want to add in a description on everything, but let's go down to the interesting settings. So that's gonna be we're gonna change this to external slash affiliate product just like this And the first thing that we're gonna want to do is add in the product. You are l Now that's gonna be your affiliate link. OK, so for us here, we're already logged into our affiliate account on Blue Host, and we're gonna just go ahead and grab this affiliate link that we have right here. Okay, so I'm gonna go ahead and I'm gonna copy this link like this, and then I'm gonna go in here, and I'm just gonna paste it in. It's really that simple. And then you get to change the text off the bottom. So maybe you want to say something like, get it's now or try it now or you could even right, learn more. I mean, you could write anything about this, but as soon as they click on it, they will be going through your affiliate link. Right? Meaning you get a discount if they buy something, and then we get to set the regular price and don't make something up here. I mean, makes sense off this price. So, for example, if it's to 75 a month or if it's a total off, let's say I'm just gonna make something up here. I'm just going to say it's It's $90 for this example and you write $90 in here. And, as usual, you want to go ahead and add in new categories. So we're going to call this, for example, hosting we could be calling it. If we're going to be adding additional like that, and then go ahead and click on Add New category. I'm going to be checking that category. And then I strongly recommended, either in the short description or in the long description that you use a disclaimer and tell them, Hey, this is an affiliate link. In other words, if you buy something from this affiliate link, I get compensated for it Right doesn't come from your pocket, but it comes from the company's pocket. Because I am recommending this. This is just such a great way to build openness and trust with your visitors and customers . So I always, when it comes to affiliate links, recommend that you add in a disclaimer, either in the short description or in the long description that's completely up to you, probably want added in the long, because you're gonna have more sensible things more interesting things to say here in the short description. Okay. And then where we go to things such as inventory, you're still gonna want to give it on SK you number. So let's call it B. L you want a one? Something like that. And then it advance. You're just gonna have the menu order and enabled reviews to pick from Its gonna be completely up to you. We're gonna go ahead and set a product image, and we're gonna go ahead and pick the blue host image and just gonna change this name so that the title makes more sense in this case. And we're just going to call it Blue Host hosting right. Then we're gonna add it in like this and then set product image. So now if I go ahead and I click on publish, go up to view product open in new tab, we can see that here is our products. So right now, we don't have in a description or anything right now, but if I go ahead and I could come, for example, learn more, we're going to be taken to their website right here. You can go ahead and click on get started you can go ahead and click on their cedar. Different hosting Zehr, different offers, etcetera, etcetera. But if you check out the link, you can see that the U. T. M on the line source is from Robin and jesper dot com, and the medium is affiliate. So they are from the fillets link right now. So would we be buying something from this? Then we would be getting a discount or we can't buy something on our own affiliate link. That's very legal. But if this was someone else doing this, we would beginning a discount from their purchase. So this is how simple it is to adding affiliate products to your shop. Now you can decide if you want to do that manually, for example, with L. A mentor. Or if you want to use Woo Coomer's Either way works and they work really, really good. All right, guys. See in the next lecture 5. Create a Digital Product: All right, guys, in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to create and sell a digital product. So let's jump straight into it. So here we are at our shop, we're gonna go ahead and go off to new and click on product. And a digital product can really be anything. It could be an e book. What could be selling one of four courses we could be selling? Maybe a template we could be selling. Well, basically anything that iss a e product, you know, a game, An MP three file. You know, the sky's the limit, but for this example, we're going to be selling on E book, and we're gonna call it E Boo. Mr Adachi Book Monster, Digital marketing like that. Okay. And then we're gonna scroll down, and now we're gonna go ahead and click in the downloadable section. Writers that's gonna pop up a couple of extra options now realize that just because the product is downloadable doesn't necessarily mean that it's purely virtual. So, for example, you could be selling a certain product, maybe a book. But you're also handing out an e book version off that book. So they're going to beginning a physical copy but also a backup it. So then that product would be doubt both virtual and physical, in other words, downloadable and also sent physically, meaning you would need to do some shipping. But in this case, because it is an e book is going to be completely virtual. We're going to click there and remove the shipping part. So let's say that for this product, the product is going to be, you know, 14. 99. We're not going to set a sale for this one and then four downloadable files. All I need to do is go ahead and click on add file and then the file name Master Digital Marketing E Book there ago. And now we have two different options in here. Either we could go ahead and add in a u R L writes. So if you're using maybe on up loading service like upload of Iot or some other uploading services, you could be linking to their. Or maybe you're linking directly to you know your Google drive or however you choose to solve it. Or you can go ahead and click on choose file, and then you're gonna choose it from your media libraries. I'm gonna click, go to upload files in click on select File And here is the E Books. All I'm gonna do is double click on it, and then I'm gonna click on insert file. You are. L like that. So this creates a filed your L to your own website because it's coming from your media library, Right? So you're hosting this yourself, And if you're selling something like an e book in or maybe MP three files, you know, your own song, someone else's songs, whichever, then this is not gonna be a problem, because that's not gonna take so much space. But if you are selling a big course, for example, that might be many, many, many gigabytes. You're probably going to want to use it uploading service, okay, or maybe have them downloaded from your Google drive, for example. But that's an up loading service in itself. So we have chosen our file like that. Then we have two options here we have the download limits and we have the download expiring now for the download limit. I don't recommend that you actually set a limit because chances are that some people are gonna want to download it multiple time, for whatever reason, and if they are not able to download it again, they're gonna go ahead and e mail you and ask for a new link. And that's just a waste of your time to be honest. Similarly, with the download expiring, if someone's link expires and they want to download it again, chances are they're gonna come to you and ask you for a new link. And that's just a waste of your or one of your employees this time. Now, if you're going to use one of these, I recommended download expiring more than a download limit. But if you're worried about piracy than honestly, you know, as soon as someone buys your digital product, you are a to risk for piracy. And that's just the reality of digital product. But that does not take away from how amazing it is to have an unlimited amount that you can sell. This never, ever runs out of stock. We use it for our courses, and it's an amazing way to do business so all of this is set up as usual. You want to set up your SK you so we're going to call this, for example, E 101 like that. We're not going to go through the others. Wanna have a short product description? Learn how to master digital marketing with this brand new e book, something like that. And then we're gonna set a product image like this, and then we're just gonna go ahead and cope with this title and put it to the other sections as well. And then set product image Scroll up. We're also gonna set it into a category, right? So right now, it's not in any category whatsoever, and we might want to add in a new category. So we're gonna go ahead and click on add new category, and we're gonna write something like digital products and then click on add new category. It's gonna be set there, and now we're just gonna go ahead and publish this. So let's move over to view product, right? Collect their an open link in new tab. And here is our product. Now, this isn't a real product right now. This is just something that I grabbed from picks. Obey for this example Now, a lot of you might be wondering why we're using a physical book in order to sell on e product. That's because when you're displaying a physical book, it gives a nicer feeling for the customers. So whatever product that you're selling, whatever cover that you're using, you can go to Fiverr dot com. Pay someone $5 they will make it into on a physical book version. Off your e book is just gonna be a much nicer display to have it like this, then just having a flat picture, for example, like we have a flat picture for a coaching. We could also be having that as a product display just because it gives a nice or feeling. But this is how simple it is to add in a digital product. Not one thing that you might want to consider is that, for example, right now, you can add multiple to cart like this. You might want to go down, go to in mentor and enable Onley one, because the truth is that when they download it, they can multiply it as much as they want. But, you know, for ethical reasons, some people are gonna want to give this away, and ethically, they want a supporting and what you do so they might actually buy multiple, just to support what you do right. But in my experience, that's quite where most people are gonna download it, copay and share it. And that's just the nature of digital products. So I'm gonna leave it completely up to you if you leave it for multiple quantity or just a one click download. I actually prefer to leave it like this, you know, just to keep it open. So this is how you create the digital products. Super easy. Super Simple Again. Don't forget about the product description, the long ones and using the product tax. Now let's move on to the next lecture. 6. Create a Service Product: All right, my friends, in these lecture, we're gonna go ahead and learn how to create a service product and then add that to our shop. So let's get started. So here we are at a beautiful shop. We're just gonna head straight up here with says new and then go down to create a new product. So for this example, we're going to be offering a coaching service, a 60 minute coaching service. So for the product name, I'm going to write coaching 60 men like that, Okay. And then we're going to want to have a description in here as well. But you guys already know how to write a description, right? And, by the way, when it comes to selling a service doesn't have to be coaching. It could be anything it could be. For example, it's Skype called to show someone on screen how to do a certain thing. It could be offering a certain service for maybe doing analytics for someone it could be offering to improve someone's health through life, coaching us well, etcetera, etcetera, as service could be any service that you are providing. So let's move on down now for the product data. The first thing we're gonna learn is how to create a simple product. Now, one of the beauties off selling a service or a downloadable product is that there's no shipping. Right? So when I click on virtual right here, we're going to see the shipping section disappears. I'm gonna click on this booth is gonna be gone, and now we're gonna go ahead and set a price. So let's say that for this 60 minute session, the price is gonna be something like, you know, let's do $199. But it's on sale for 149. 99 something like that. And then we're gonna move down to inventory, and we're gonna want to write in the sq. So let's write C 11 like that. And just as another pointer, if you are too worried about writing the correct sq number, don't be. You're overthinking is just such a good idea to actually be writing the s key you. Now, a lot of people prefer to juice, right? You know, one series 01 and then add to one seriously or 21 seriously or three for each product that they add in. You're not gonna get this wrong. Do it whichever way you would like to. Okay, as long as you write two sq, it's such a good idea and then going down, we have managed stock. Now one of the beauties off having a off selling his service or a digital product is that you don't need to worry about stock, right? They don't go out. That's the beauty off any digital products or services. Now, of course, your schedule might be full, but we're gonna talk about that in a little bit. For now, we know that there's no stock. There's no limit to what we're selling. You're never gonna run out of stock for your service or for your digital product, for example, and then stock status. We're gonna keep in stock, and we're gonna talk about selling it individually in a little bit. So linked products and attributes were not going to go through right now. Finally, we have advanced and we could adding a purchase note that's gonna show up when they have completed the order. We could also change the order off the item, but we're not going to go through that and we're gonna leave reviews on. Okay, So what we want to do now is set a product image right here. So I have already taken the liberty to actually adding in a image. And when you're offering some sort off service, it might be a good idea, depending on the service off course. But if it's like coaching or something personal like that, you might want to add in a picture off yourself. Now, for this example, we're actually using it. Picture off me and Jess Bird, that someone I drew, it's a cartoon. So we're gonna use this one. Just as for this example, and then we're also gonna want to set the product categories, so we're going to click on add new category and we're gonna write services and then click on add new category. Now, when it comes to the other categories, like gaming, we might want to sell more things within gaming. So right now we have one for mice. Now we might want to sell, for example, gaming, keyboard, gaming, headset, gaming screens, etcetera. So it would be a great idea to have more under categories for gaming and same with pets. Right now we're selling dog colors. Maybe you want to sell, you know, cat colors. Maybe you want to sell lizard toys. You know, Sky's the limit in this pretty much. But for service says, we're pretty much is going to be selling services, so we don't need to have an under category for this one. We're just gonna keep this a cold parent category and not create a child category. So what, we're gonna go ahead and do now is click on Publish. And then we're gonna go to the upper corner here with this view product, and we're gonna open this in a new tab. All right, so here we have our product, right? So it's coaching 60 minutes. There's the picture here. It's currently on sale for 149 99 which is great. Now, here's one thing I really recommend to all of her student when it comes to selling services that's gonna take up your time. That is that right now people are able to add as many of these as they wants. If if someone has in 20 does, then thereby in 20 hours of your time. And that's really great, right? There's a lot off. That's good business. There's a lot of money in for you now. The problem with this is that when business blossoms too much, if you understand me, then there's not gonna be time in your schedule, and it's going to be outside of your control and there's gonna be unhappy customers. So what I recommend that you do is that you actually set a limit so that the first session is going to be set to just being able to buy one. Then you and that customer can set up additional times together because that's gonna be able to fit into your schedule. And when your schedule dust Blust someone you have just you know too much. You need to increase the price right and make space and make it a more high end product because obviously it's very much in demand. So the way to do this is to go back, go to inventory and then click on this one. Words is sold individually. Okay, so now if I click this one in and then I scroll up in, click on updates and then update this one, we can see that there's no ability to add in quantities. So if I add this one to cart right now, then I'm gonna have won in court. But if I tried to click on add two cars one more time, I'm gonna get on air like this. You cannot add another coaching 60 minutes to your car. So there's this one is currently limited to just one by right. We're gonna go ahead and remove this one. So this is a really great way to keeping on eye on your schedule when you're offering a service. Now, if you're offering a downloadable product, obviously you don't need to do this. And also, when you're doing this, this is not going to be limiting the other products that you are selling Onley gonna be for this product. So another thing that we can also do is make this into a variable product, right? So if we go down and we change this from simple proud of right now and we turn it into a variable product, we're gonna be able to offer different times. So, for example, right now we're offering 60 minutes. But if we just call this one for coaching, we're gonna be able to sit up variables for Maybe, you know, 30 minutes, 60 minutes, 1920 minutes so that they can choose themselves. So you probably notice right now that the virtual option disappeared. Don't were about that is gonna pop up again very soon, so we don't have to worry about the shipping part here. So we're gonna go down two attributes and we're going to click on add. So the attribute is going to be length. Okay, You're going to be used for variation. And here we're gonna decide on the links that we want to be offering. So let's say they were gonna do 30 minutes and then let's make a pipe 60 minutes, make a pipe, 90 minutes pipe, and 120 minutes for the truly dedicated students, right? And now we're gonna click on save attributes, and then we're gonna go down to variations, and here we're gonna change to create variations from all attributes. So we're gonna go ahead and click on Go and remember, we can do Max 50 but right now we're on. Lee added in force were well below that limit. Okay, so four variations have been added, so this is perfect and we have done this before. Right now, the differences because we're selling his service. If I could care and expand them all but we're gonna want to do here is turned all of these into virtual right? So they hold shipping and wait, It's going to be disappearing just like that. So we're gonna turn all of these into virtual products just like that, they will go and then we're gonna sit the rest up. So let's say that for 30 minutes we're going to do something like, you know, let's say that it's 100 and $50 we're gonna have this esque EU see 102 rights and it's not gonna be on sale is gonna be on stock, and we're not gonna add in in a specific description, even though we can. So 30 minutes we could write a perfect introduction to learn about the next steps in your digital marketing and business. For example, scrolling down. We have the 60 minutes that's gonna be well, you guessed it. See 103 just like that. And the price that we were speaking about is gonna be 200. But this one is actually forced sale 149 99. The description could be the recommended time to improve your business and digits. All market saying, Let's do business with a big be here as well so you could add in descriptions for each product. Now we're gonna go down some 90 minutes. Let's do this. One for $250 right? Ski 104 That's correct. Yes. And then, finally, this is gonna be a little G between 99 99 105 and then we're going to click on save changes . So then we scroll up in weekly update, and then we're gonna update this page as well. So here we are now, please choose a product option, and we have our different times that we can choose Weaken, do the 30 minutes we can see. That's $150 right? We can do the 60 minutes, which currently put down from 200 to 149 99. You can also see that the text pops up for each option that I choose the recommended trying to improve your business in digital marketing while if I go to 30 there's a different Texas . That's gonna be for the description. Okay? And then we have the additional information and the reviews. So this is how you do variables for offering certain services and noticed that they can't add a quantity to cart here either. Now, one thing that I can recommend is that you see, we have the police choose product options, right, Because it's gonna be default on shoes on option just like this. If you want to change that default, all you need to do is go back to where we are variations. And then we have the default form values appear. So let's set it to 60 just like that. And then we're gonna click on updates and update this page. So now when we get in here, the length is going to be automatically set to 60 minutes. Asked the default. And this is a really good idea because a lot of people forget that you actually have different options here, and even more so, if there's a recommendation like 60 minute might be a really good introduction, you can set that one asset default and get that and then you just click on add to cart for your customers. Then they're gonna have your product just like that, Right? And they're not gonna be able to add in anymore. So this is how you set the default value. And this is how you create a service product for your shop. So really good job, guys. Now, I just want to tell you also don't forget, especially if you're doing a simple product. Don't forget the product. Short description. Don't forget to add in your product tags as well. So just keep an eye on this and get everything right while you're going. And we're going to be going through the additional information here. Asked. We go. So we're gonna do it one step at a time. If you're wondering. Well, how does the shipping work? You know, what are the other options Gonna go through them, so just follow along, start to understand the system. And now we move on to the next lecture. See? There 7. Create a Variable Product: All right, guys, in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to create a variable product and add that to our shop. Now, a variable product is a product is gonna have multiple variables. For example, it might be a T shirt that has multiple sizes. Now, those air multiple variables, right? It could be a T shirt that has multiple colors. That's another variable. But we're gonna go ahead and add a product that has multiple variables to it. So let's go ahead and get started. All right. So here we are at our website writes, the thing is looking really neat. We have are a shop here. We have the car tear. Everything is looking really good and cool. And we know by now that in order to write a new product would go to the back and offer website dashboard the product and add new. But we could also take the short cut here and just go to new and then go down to word says products. So this is really the shortcut to be creating a new product like this when you are at the front end off your website. All right, so here we are, and for this example, we're gonna go ahead and add in a dog color or rather, dog colors, because they will becoming in a multitude off sizes on colors. Okay, so for the product name, I'm just going to write Ah, flashing dog collar like that. Okay. And like you showed, you're gonna want to add in a description here and everything, but we're gonna look at the more interesting aspect the different aspect right now, which is going to be at the changes off the settings when we go from simple product to a variable products. If you have a look on the left right now, you're going to see them. When I click on variable, we get some different attributes and we get some different settings to be setting up. So the first thing we have in our inventory is that we can write in s key you if you want to manage stock or if it's gonna be sold individually. So we're not gonna touch those for now and we're not gonna move into shipping or linked products is gonna be for a later lecture. We're gonna go down two attributes, however, because the attributes is going to be the different values. So what do I mean with different values? Let me show you. Now, the first thing you have here, there's this custom product attributes. So we're gonna go ahead and click on add. All right, so this is where you add in the attributes in a different value. So, for example, the first attribute that we're going to be adding in for these dog color product is going to be the color. Okay, so I'm just going to write color like that because that's going to be the attributes. And then we get to add in the values to different colors that is going to be available, and for this example, we're gonna use two different colors, is gonna be read, and it's gonna be green. And when you are adding different values, you're gonna want to put a wall or a pipe in between them as it's called. And it looks like this, let's say that we started with red, Okay, Then I'm gonna hit space, and then I'm gonna hit option. And seventh, if I click on Option and seven on the on a Mac computer, that's going to create this so called wall also known as a pipe. Looks like this. And then I'm gonna write green. Okay, so the different values are separated by this pipes. I write green, make a space, make this wall or pipe space, and then the next value. Now, if you are on a PC, you're using windows. I do believe that this but, um, that is right next to said on the keyboard, this button, I think you click control Ault, and then click down this bottom and you're gonna be able to make a pipe. But for simplicity's sake, in the resource is I will have added in this document and all it contains is this science. You can just go ahead and select it. You can cope it, we can go down, and then you can just paste this one in like that, and then you're gonna have the wall. It's gonna work perfectly. OK, that's all you're gonna need to do. So this is how we separate the values with the wall. So this is gonna be the first attributes. It's gonna be caller, and we're gonna use thesis variations, right? It's a varied product. So before I go ahead and say this I'm actually going to click on add custom product attributes again because it's not only the different colors you wanna add in as a variation , but also sizes. Okay, So for this one, I'm gonna write size, and here we're gonna adding some different sizes. Now, the different attributes could be anything it could be. For example, if you're selling beds or mattresses could be soft or hard, it could be thick or thing. I mean, the at the attributes and the values were completely up to you to add Ian off course, depending on the product. So in here, I'm gonna write small. I'm gonna create this wall on medium, and then they would go and then create this wall and large. Now, you could also ride it like this. Should do you want to again? This is completely up to you. You could write s at this m at the scene ill because these are gonna be the different values for them to be selecting an SML or small, medium large. These air universal coats either way is going to work. And then we're gonna check, use for variations and then click on save attributes. Okay, so the attributes are saved by now, but they're not yet used as variations. In order to actually add them as a variation for this product, we need to go ahead and go to variations here. And then we're going to click on add variation and we're going to click on create variations from all attributes. Right. So this is gonna be creating the different variations possible, and you're able to create 50 different variations at a time. Right? And in our case, we're actually going to be creating six because we have three different sizes, right? And we have two different colors. That's three times two is gonna equal six variations. So I'm going to click on go here and then yes, against the max 50 per gram. That's okay, were well below that. And here we have it. Six variations added and you click on close. OK, so here we are. Okay. These are all the different variations. So we have three different read is the small medium large, and then we have three different green ones that small, medium large as well. So in total six different variations now, in order for us to start playing around with them the first thing we can do is click on, expand here to the right that's gonna expand all of them, and we're going to be wanting to add in the product pictures. Okay, so the 1st 1 we know it's a red one is too small. So I'm gonna click on upload image, and I've already taken deliberately to upload of images and then I'm going to click on the red one and then I'm gonna click on set variation image now for the different sizes. We don't need different images, but we do need different images for the different colors. Oh, and by the way, these images will be in the resource is See, you can also play around with this if you don't have your own variable product to be playing around with. So I'm gonna add in. These is gonna be another Red is I'm gonna add this one in scroll down. This another red gonna add this one in. Now when we scroll down, we have the first green One is the small one. Okay, so I'm just gonna add this warning and all I need to do is add in the same image because it doesn't matter with the size. So there we go. All of the images are added in just like that. Now, before we actually go ahead and update this and check it out, we're gonna want to go to the right and add a product image as well is going to be displaying on the product page. So I'm gonna click on set product image. And for this, I'm going to be using the red one. Okay, So set product image and then for product gallery. I'm just gonna add in the variation off the green one and quick to add to gather it. Okay, I'm going to scroll up and click on Publish perfects, and now it is published. And now, when we published this product, we also get the option appear that says view products. So what I'm gonna go ahead and do is right click an open link in New tab because if I click on, it is going to change this one. And I want to have two tabs for this. So this is how it looks like right now. Okay. Now it says the product is currently out of stock and on available, and that is because we haven't actually putting the SK you number. So because there are variables and there are no s key you number, the system doesn't recognize them as individuals. So what we're gonna have to do right now is to give them different sk you numbers. Remember, we spoke about that earlier. This is for your internal logistics, but they are super important, especially when we are using variations. So we're going to go back here, and then we're going to scroll down and we're gonna go to variations right here and now we're going to click on expand, and we're going to give them all a different SK you. So this is a color. So I'm going to write cll here as just gonna be an observation for color. And I'm not gonna use the oh like c o or C O. L. Because the O can easily be mistaken for a number, though if you always keep the rule that first you have, for example, letters and the numbers this isn't gonna be a mistake is gonna happen easily. But for simplicity's sake, I'm going to do this and then I'm going to start with the one I always start with the one. I never start with a cereal because it gets confusing. Which one is zero? So how they calculate the total amount of products, etcetera, etcetera. So I'm gonna write 1000 and one. Okay, that's gonna be the first sq number for the red Small. Now, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna cook big these ones, except the last one. And the reason for that is because now when I have cooked with this, I can scroll down to the next one in here I can paste it in. And then I can just right, too. And I can do that again. I can paste it in, right. Three can do that again. I can write for now. You don't need a different to change any number letter. Anything up is the same product. Just different variations. Or just give them a different number through that simple of five, and then finally down here and gonna pace that in so sorry and then Right, Six. Right. So we have five there. Six, they're perfect. So that's all now, before we kill, it can't save changes. There's one more thing I want to do and that it's actually to set a price for all of these . Now, off course. As you can see, they're all open. We can set individual prices. But what I'm gonna go ahead and do is click here with his add variation and I'm going to go down to word says set regular prices. And then I'm gonna go ahead and click on Go. So here I get to enter regular prices for all of the product. I'm not going to use a saline just gonna adding a regular price. So let's say 17 99 for this one. I click OK, and then, like like Okay, so now this is gonna set 17 99 for all off the products for all of these variations. So there we go. Now, I'm gonna go ahead and click on updates. And now I'm gonna go back to the website here, and I'm just gonna update this page. And as you can see, it's now possible to be buying this. Okay, so we have a couple of options. If you wanna have a red or green right, that's gonna be the cooler. And then we also have this size. If you wanna have a small medium or large. So let's say you wanna have a large right. But let's say that you don't want to go with a red one. You want to go with the green one, so you just go ahead and click on green, and it's gonna change the picture, which is extremely handy. So depending on which caller you're choosing, that's going to change up the picture. But changing the size is gonna change the picture because you don't need different pictures for different sizes. But you could if you wanted to, like we were just looking at, okay. And then you're able to add in as many as you want. Let's say, did you want 10? You click on add to cart, you go ahead and check out the card is gonna be 100 79 $19. Okay, so let's just remove those. So we know that everything here is working right now we have the s key you number, but we don't have a category yet, so we're gonna want to go ahead and add that one in. So let's go back here. We're gonna go down is currently an uncanny arise, and you don't wanna have anything called M categorized. So I'm gonna add any new one. Let's call this pits, right. I'm gonna add that in s a new category was gonna be pits, and then I'm gonna write dog collars like that and Pits is going to be the parent category , and I'm gonna click on add new category. So there we go. Now, I can go ahead and click on update, and this is gonna be updated with the new category. And as we can see, the categories has now changed to dog collars and pits, right? And we have the additional information down here and the possible reviews that you can be adding in as well. So this is how you create the variable products. And just like before, you're gonna want to add in a nice description, you're gonna want to go all the way down and adding a nice product, short description as well, and then set your product tags and then you're all ready to go. Now the final thing I want to show you that might be obvious already, but I just want to be extra clear on this. Is that if you go to variations and you expand all of these, you can go into any one of these and just do micromanagement. So let's say that the green one, the green large one. We want this one to be a little bit more expensive than the others. So let's set this one too. 1999 just like this. Then we could go ahead and do that, go all the way up and click on updates. Update this page as well. And now you'll notice that we have all of the different price points on the top right here . So how much do the flashing dog color codes will Anything between 17 99 and 1999 you're gonna know what it is. This one is 17 99. But if I go to the large, one is going to be 1999. So all of these variations, you're able to manage them manually. And because we aren't managing our stock manually, remember managing stock. It's gonna be a variation expand. And then we have managed talk. Then you're gonna be able to sit in how many there's gonna be like, there's 10 left. There's 15 left, etcetera. But because we are in managing, stuck there, just able to, you know, adding whatever quantity they want and just order it, which is perfect if you're doing something like drop shipping. And if you don't know what drop shipping is this basically, when you are the middle hand, so you find a customer that buy something from you store, but you are not actually stalking. The product is going to be directly ordered from a warehouse or from another seller, and you will be the middle hand. So then it might be a good idea to not manage your own stuff because you aren't managing your own stock. Okay, so this is how you add in a variable product. And now we're gonna move on to the next lecture where we're gonna learn how to sell a service product. So, seeing the next lecture, guys 8. Remove the Sidebar: Alright, guys. So let's talk about the sidebar, right? So we have this sidebar right here and chances are we might not want to. Now there are many benefits with having a sidebar because it's gonna help you with navigation. But there's also many benefits to not having a sidebar because it allows more space for your products and even more importantly, for your product images. So this is all going to come down to the design that you choose to use. But me personally, I generally prefer to go without these sidebar itself. So currently on our shop, we are at our website. We have gone to show them we have just set this beautiful product up now. I also changed it to gaming mice, right? Because deplorable mouse isn't mouses mice, my bad. And now we have a couple of options off removing the sidebar here because there's one sidebar for this page. The shop page. If I click in on this product here, there is this sidebar for the product patient. There's also a sign bar for the cart page right here, and you can see this sideboards even to the right. For some reason now, the question is, where do you want if any of the sidebar to be so I'm gonna show you three different methods that you can be playing around with sidebars on. Now, the first thing that you can go ahead and do is in the shop and the product page itself. And that is to actually remove these cyber for only the product pace. Because even if you are utilising a sidebar for navigation and for simplicity sake because there are many benefits to it, you might not want to have decide by when you're displaying the product because it's going to look so much cleaner when you're not having the cyber and the product image description , everything gets to take up much more space. So what? I'm gonna go ahead and do here. It's just click on customized up here and then in here you're gonna notice it to the left. We have something called Wu Comer to the left has been added in, So I'm gonna click there, and then I'm gonna go to single product here and here. We get to change the layout off the sidebar, right? We have it to the left right now. We could also click here to change the layout to the right. But more importantly, we could go ahead and use a full with like this. Meaning is going to be 100% full with taking up all off these space. So this is generally what I recommend for the product page itself. Even though you prefer to have a sidebar because you get to display the product, you get to talk much more about the benefits of the products and nicer display overall, in my opinion, again, it's personal based on this sign. So I'm gonna go ahead and click on Publish for this one. All right, So I'm really liking this. There is a lot more space here to be playing around with right now, so I really like this. This is taking up a lot more space looking really nice. Now, if you don't like this very full with going all the way to decide, you still wanna have more of the box to sign what you can go ahead and do is go back to customize and go to newcomers and go to single product again and then use the 100% full with writing because the 100% full with is still going to box in the ICT is going to give a boxing for the description to this side and to the image site. So now if I go ahead and click on Publish So now we have removed the side bar to the left here on the product page. That means that if I go to shop, for example, we still have the sidebar here. So there are two ways to go from here. One, you could remove all of the sidebars from the entire page. That means that the card page the product pasted would just wear it. And even the blawg page are going to have the sidebar removed. So the question is, what do you do if you still want to have the sidebar on the block page, but not on these shop pages? What? You can go ahead and do you? If you're using the Ocean WP theme is, go ahead and go to the back end of your website. We're gonna go to dashboard here and then we're gonna scroll down and go to pages, click on all pages and from here you can decide to go in manually to car to check out to my account to the shop, etcetera. So all I would need to do for this page it is Just go ahead and click on them. And then here with this content layout, we're just gonna change the default to go with full with like that and then I'm going to click on updates. So now if I go back and I go to visit sites and then we go into shop, it's going to have the sidebar removes is going to give us the possibility to displaying our product much wider, much more beautifully with our images. And this is the design that I prefer. Now, if you want to go ahead and remove all of the sidebars on the entire website or if you just simply don't use Ocean WP, you can go ahead and go to the dashboard and then scroll down until you get to your appearance. Then we're gonna go to widgets and from here, you see that we have the default sidebar. Now all you need to do is open these up one by one, scroll down and click on delete. Delete this one. This one this one, This one, this one. And when all of them are deleted when the default sidebar here is completely empty widgets , there will be no sidebar any more. So that's the three different ways that you can be handling the sidebar, depending on if you only want to remove it for the product page. If you only want to remove it for the shop or if you want to remove it altogether throughout your entire website. Okay, Now what? I'm gonna go ahead and do. It's actually keep the sidebar for the blogged for now and remove it manually from the pages through Ocean WP for the shop pages. All right, so I'm gonna go ahead and do that, and then we're gonna move on to the next lecture and set up our variable products. So see, in the next likes you guys 9. Create a Grouped Product: All right, guys, in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to create grouped products. Now, a group product is when we have a single product page with several options to add on for that product, I'm going to show you exactly what I mean with this. Let's get started. All right. So here we are at our shop. You know the drill. We're gonna go ahead and go up to new here, we're gonna go to new product, and now we're going to be adding in our product. So for this example, I will be using on external hard drive as an option. And what I'm gonna do with this being a group product is that I'm going to allow them to add in one off three different sizes or two off those three different sizes or five or 10 etcetera. But what I want is a single product page with the three different options that they can decide the quantity and then just simply click on add to cart, right? So if you're selling something to company, for example, is gonna be an excellent way to sell a lot off the same product, but maybe in different sizes. So let me show you more practically how this works. So we have external hard drive here. That's gonna be the name off the product itself. We can have a long description. We're not going to go through that. And then here, I'm gonna set this to grouped product. Just like that. We're going to give it on sq. I'm going to write aged HD 101 just like that. And this is where we start using these kind of interesting functions such as linked products. That's what will be using here, but not right now in a second. And then there's nothing more we need to do right here. We could go down, give it a short description, choose your hard drives, for example. Choose your hard drives. Came simple in clean, right. And then we add in in our product categories. I don't think any of these fits right now, so let's create a new one. Let's call this hard where they would go at new category and then we could give it a product taxes center. But we're not going to do that for now. We're gonna, however, give it a product image. So here it is, right to external hard drive. I'm just gonna click on set product image just like that. And now I'm going to scroll up and I'm going to click on Publish. So now if I go ahead and I click on view product and I'm gonna do it in a new tab, we can see that we have our external hard drive here, right? But we have no price. We have no option. We have basically nothing for this. And this is pretty much the point, because what we're gonna do now, which is what makes this a group product, is that we're gonna create three separate products, three separate external hard drives with different sizes on them. And those three are going to be showing up on this single product page so you can decide how many you want off each of those. So let's go ahead and get started with that. So the first thing we can do is that we can just cope with this name, right? We can just go ahead and click on Cope external hard drive. Then we go up to new and then we go to product. So then we can write, for example, one terabyte, and then I just right click and I paste this in. So this is gonna be one terabyte, external hard drive. Okay, that's gonna be the first. We also want to scroll down, and we want to set a price. Let's say that this is $50 right? And we're gonna want to set the product image because this product image is going to show up when they are added to cart, even though we only have a single product page. So we're just gonna go ahead and use the same product? Immature, just like that. And before we published, this is the important part. We're going to go over here to catalog visibility, and we're going to change this to hidden. And the reason we're doing this is because we don't want this to be showing up as an option in our shop, right? This might be confusing now, but I'm gonna show you exactly why we don't want it to show up in our shop. So just follow along hand. Then I'm gonna show you practically why we don't want that. So everything is setting. I'm gonna click on publish. That's the 1st 1 Then we go up. I'm gonna create two more. I'm gonna go to new product, and I'm gonna have this one before terabyte. And then I'm just gonna paste this in four terabytes. External hard drive, just like that and we can go in. Let's say that this season, $150 right? And then we're gonna set the same product image just like that said product image. Then we're gonna move up to catalog visibility. We're going to click on Hidden, okay, and then publish. And now let's do our final. We're gonna go ahead and click on new. We're gonna go to product. Let's say that this one is 10 terabyte. We're gonna pace this one in. We're gonna set. Let's say the price is $300 for this one. We're gonna set the product image. There we go. Said product image. Now, there's no need to be setting your product categories here. And the reason for that is because these aren't going to be showing up in the search or in the shop. I'm gonna show you what I mean, practically in just a second. And then we go ahead and we go to catalog disability click on Hidden. Okay. And now we're gonna publish this. All right, guys. So right now what we have if we go ahead and we go to the shop is that we go back here to the front off our shop and we go to shop itself. So what we have is that we have the external hard drive right here, OK? And if I click on it, we don't have the prices yet. This is where our three options comes in. So we're gonna have these three options with these three different price points coming up on this external hard drive. But because we want to keep them all in here, that's the reason we don't need to put them in any category because they will never be visible here. This is why we have hidden them from the search from the shop because we want all of those options to be connected in this external hard drive in here. So let's go ahead and do that connection, and this is really where the magic happens. We're gonna go back to the back end, offer websites we're going to click on all products, and now we're going to go back to our external hard drive were just going to click on that one, and we're going to scroll down, right? We're gonna go to are linked products, and this is where we group them. Okay, so the 1st 1 is gonna be that one with one terabytes. So I'm just gonna write that in, and here we haven't one terabyte, external hard drives. I'm gonna add that. Then we had four terabytes, and I'm gonna add that. Then we have 10 terabytes, and I'm gonna go ahead and add that one in s. Well, now, if you want to change, the order is just simple. Dragon Drop like this. But here we go. These are D group products. This is what is known as linking different products. We're gonna go ahead and click on updates. And now let's go ahead and update this one as well. And here we go. So this is what I mean with adding in the three different sizes to three different options in a single product page. So what we have here right now is on the option to buy an external hard drive. You click on that product and you get to decide the different sizes. Right here we have a one terabyte external hard drive, four terabyte and 10 terabyte. So what you could do, For example, let's say that a company comes to your website or a private person, whoever and they want, You know, when I have three of these wanna have two of those, and so we're gonna be needing a lot of space. So we're actually gonna have five of these, right? And then they just click on add to cart and all of this in total, 10 will be added to the cart. Ride a pair. That's a nice I'm right. So this is what's known as grouping products. So if we go back to shop here, we don't want to have the one terabyte before terabyte and the 10 terabyte as separate products. We want them all to be grouped into one single product in her shop, which is right here. As you can see, we have the external hard drive, will have the price 50 to $300 I click in. And here are the different options, right. Amazing way. And also, if you're selling, for example, a laptop and you're gonna have the different options. You can decide on the size of the Ram. You can decide on the CPU, maybe the storage, the size of this storage, the hard drive, etcetera. You could have a computer, make that into one big group product and then just have a different a bunch of choices where they can add in and customize their own computer. For example, this can be done with any products, a super handy way off, selling more right. And also, if we go in here and we go to our cart, I'm just gonna click here. Then we can see that they all have images, right? And these are the featured images that we were adding for these product pages separately. So if we hadn't added an image for the, for example, one terabyte, four terabytes, then there would be no image. And had we added different images, there would be different images showing up on this one. For a group, product like this off course is strongly recommended, used to same image. But if you're doing, for example, you want to sell a customized computer, a customized laptop and you're adding Ingraham, for example, you're adding in hard drives You probably want to use different images for those when they're showing up in the cart. Alright, guys. So this is how you add in grooved products. Let's move on in the course. 10. Customize Shop Page: All right, guys, in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to customise our shop page. Right? So this is the show page that we have right it with all of our wonderful products that we have added. Now, there's a couple of fun things that we can do here already. Now, if we look at the display off the products these air currently placed in what's called a grid view, meaning their place, like a grid like this will have three here we have three here. We could also change that to at least we can see here that this is the great view we can change it to. A list view is going to be looking like this A list. Now there are more fun things we can do here. We can also sort them the way that we want to, for example, by popularity by average rating, etcetera, etcetera. And we can also have them in Mawr pages. Off course, meaning you're gonna have to have more products for this to be relevant. But as you can see, we currently have a certain amount of products their right to have three products in each agreed and also someone has decided that we're gonna have 12 products per page here. Now we can go ahead and we can customize these to our own liking, and I'm gonna show you how to do that. Now all we need to do is go up here and go to customize. And then we're gonna go down until we find Luke Somers. We're gonna click there and then we're going to click on archives because this are shopping . Page is regarded as on Archives Page. We're going to click on archives here. Now, here's where things get interesting where we can do some customer stations. So the 1st 1 is the shop page display. Right now, we currently have show products which makes sense, hence the shopping page. But what we could also do is that we could be showing categories instead. So if we would be showing categories instead, we have all of these categories that we have earlier set. For example, we have digital products will have gaming. We have pits hosting hardware, etcetera. Now, we're also gonna want to set images for all off these category. Should we be using this function? But we're not going to we're going to set it to show products, which is the setting that I recommend us Well, generally. And then we also have the category display. Choose what to display in product category pages similarly, but for your categories. So if I click care that's gonna take us to the category page, then we have the default product sorting. Now we consorted as we wish we could sort it from popularity from average rating by most recent, etcetera that we can also change the layout right now we can change from the left or right or no sidebar. Now, we have already removed the sidebar, remember? Would did that earlier. But what we're gonna do here right now is that we're actually gonna click on the right side bar here. Now, that's not gonna make it appear suddenly. But we are going to bring it back because I'm gonna show you how to use the Wu commerce sidebar. Now, the Wu commerce sidebar has some different functions, and I think that it's very useful during the right circumstances. So for now, I wanted to be on the rights. I'm gonna click on right side bar, and if you haven't removed the sidebar like Wood didn't on earlier lecture. Then chances are it's going to be showing to the right for you, but we're gonna come to that in a second. Scrolling down. We have more options here, for example, the mobile sidebar order. We could be changing that. Also, we have the show post per page, which is going to be this one. Remember, we're talking about that earlier. Someone has decided that there's going to be 12 per page now. It could be more. It could be less. We can also decide on the amount of columns, right? We could have five. We could have to. We could have six, placing them all in the same if we're going to keep them to three. Now there's a bunch of more options in here that you can go through and check out, but nothing that's going to make or break your design. But in here you can customize your shop page as much as you would like to. And then when you're all done with this, we're gonna go ahead and click on Publish, and then I will exit up here. All right, so let's bring back the sidebar. Even if just temporary because we're going to be using it a little bit differently. So what I'm gonna go ahead and do is go to the back end off our Web store off our website, and then I'm gonna go down two pages and I'm going to go down until I find a shop. I'm gonna click there and then I'm gonna change the content layout that's going that full with, and I'm going to change it to default and then update. Now, if you haven't done this, this isn't something that you need to do, but we're gonna have to have the sidebar activated in order to be using the Wu calmer sidebar. So now if I go back to the front of for website and I update this, we get the sidebar right back, right. But there's a reason we remove this one, but let's change it up a little. So what? I'm gonna go ahead and do is actually go down here until I hit appearance to the left of the back end of her website and I'm going to go to widgets. So if we look to the writer, we have the Wu calmer sidebar, and this is exactly what we're going to be using. We're not going to be using the default sidebar now. There are a lot of included Woo Coomer's we just as a lot of fun to use, but the 1st 1 is going to be off, most important, the most interesting. And that's the cart widget. Now the court widget its rights here. Now there are two ways to be adding this. I could either grab it like this and drag it in, or if I wouldn't want to do it like that. I could also go down to card Kulik on it and then click on the Wu Comers sidebar and then add widget. Either way works now. The point is, this is going to be the cart bar, and I can use this function that says, Hide if cart is empty and this is the amazing thing. Now if I check this one, high def card is empty, likely can save, and then we go back. Now, if I update our page right here, we can see that the sidebar actually disappears, and this is quite handy because now suddenly we do have our product. We have the sidebar, but it's not visible until we actually add something in there. Remember, this is a card sidebar. So, for example, let's say that I wanted to add in this e book so I would go ahead and click on Add to cart and then having a look to the right. This is going to be added in here. So this is our card, and we always have it on the show page. And right now this show page on Lee. So meaning if I go into a product just like this for the marketing product, this is still going to be one big product page. But if I go back to shop, we're still going to be have it in the car just like this, allowing us to add in more products, and we see them to the right with the total sum. So I love this function on a shop, and I think that if you're going to be using a sidebar, I would be using this form of Wu comers. Sidebar With the card. Now there are more options to do, combating in more widgets rather than actually really handy. So let's remove these for a second and then go back now the 1st 1 that I want to show you is actually a filter widget, and it's a filter by price widget. So if we go down, there's going to be one here that says Filter products by Price. So if I click on this one and I go down and I check newcomers sidebar and I click on Add Widgets and then we go here and we update this page. We're going to get this really cool filter by price widget, and now you can see that the lowest price is $10 in the highest price is $300 which is also our most expensive product, right, this right here. So what we could be doing now is that we could be filtering and say, I don't want to spend more than $150 then click on Filter and then we only see these product. Now this is something that's usually really, really popular among customers because it's easier for them to find what they are looking for. So say we do this and then we go ahead and we add this one to cart. I want to add this one to card as well, and they're still going to be showing up to the right here at a top position. Now, if you always want to filter by price to be at the top, all they would need to do is go ahead and grab this fielder product by Price and put it to the top just like this. Right? And then we go back and we update this page and this filter by price is going to be jumping up to the top just like this. So this is a really handy widget to use as well. Now there's another widget that I really recommend that you can use if you're going to be using a sidebar on your website. The welcome er sidebar, that is. And that is the product sidebar. So if we scroll down, there's going to be a widget that's called Products. So I'm just gonna go ahead and grab this and I'm going to put it at the bottom just like that, and we're just gonna call it products like this, and then you can decide the amount of products that you want to be showing in here. So let's show for, you know, let's let's show three. Just so we want to show three products in here. Now, this is where it gets interesting. What kind of products do you want to show now? We could be showing on sale products. This is a really popular and useful feature to be using, but we can also show featured products if there are in the progress. You really, really want to make sure to be selling or, for example, if there is some sort of service going on right now, this kind of you know, limited. And you really want a feature, This one. So this is for the featured products for whichever product that you decide. So let's say that we go by feature products, you can order them by, you know, whichever way did you like to, we're gonna keep it a date for now and then order for descending or ascending hide free products show hidden product. We can choose the options for these, but right now, we're just gonna go ahead and click on Save now. Right now. When this is safe and we have selected to show featured products, nothing is really going to be happening. If I update this page and the reason for that is because we haven't added any featured products. So let's go ahead and do that right now. Now all we need to do is go to the left here and go to products and click there. So we get to see all products and in order to select your featured products, all you need to do guys is click on these stars. So let's say that the feature product is going to be the e book, the coaching and the gaming mouth. So I'm gonna click these three and we can see that they're filled ups. And now if we go back and I update this page here we have our featured products. Amazing looks really, really nice, right? So this is another way of using the products rigid in a really smart right. Now, if we go back, we can also go ahead and remove the feature function, update this page and they will be gone. So it's a really easy way to keep an eye on the product that you want to feature for whatever reason, that might be. Now if we go back, we go down to appearance and go to widgets. And then let's expand the Ruegamer sidebar and then expand products. There are more ways you can, for example, be using all products like this, and you can order them by random, for example, So there's going to be popping up random products on their sidebar whenever they enter your site. And that can also be handy feature for whenever you want to increase your conversion. And Google analytics are going to be telling you if this is working or not. But generally I recommend going for on sale products or featured products for this one to really make them pop. So, guys, this is how you customize your shop page on your website. Now, once again, if you actually want to be using a sidebar or not, that's going to be completely up to you. But in my opinion, especially with the cart, this is an amazing feature to use because it's so much easier to actually be shopping and keeping an eye on your own shopping and what you're adding, what you're looking for with the widget and being recommended. Additional products, especially hand if you have a lot of products on your website now again, if you want to make sure that the sidebar it's really empty. You go ahead with the card and you click on this hide if card is empty, which hides everything. Alright, guys. Well done. I'll see you in the next lecture. 11. WooCommerce Settings: All right, guys, in this lecture, we're gonna go ahead and go through the hoop calmer settings in order to optimize our web shop. Now, in order to get there is very simple. We start off at the back end for website, we go down to newcomers and then we click on settings, and here we are. Now, we're going to go through all of these, except shipment and payments, because these air heavier subject So we're going to keep our own lectures on those. Okay, so let's get started. We're going to start here at general, so the first thing that we want to do is actually ride in their address. And this is super important because all of the shipping will be calculated from here. So you want to write in your address ing? You know, if you have a business is gonna be the business address for any individual is going to be your address. So we're gonna go ahead and do that. I'm gonna leave this blank for the lecture, and I'm gonna feel this scene afterwards for privacy reasons. And then we're gonna go down to general options. And now we've gone through and touched on some of these before and that is the first. That is the cell indication. Where are you going to be selling? There's going to be important in order to calculate all of the taxes and all of the shipping availabilities. Now, there are customers stations you could select all the countries, except for and then you could add in those countries, it could also set on Lee specific countries that you want to sell to. So, for example, if you're only planning on selling to an American audience, you could set that as a specific country in here. Now we're gonna go to all countries and then also shipping locations. So you might have services and digital products that you sell all over the world. But you might only be able to ship to certain parts of the world. You could go ahead and set those in here, and then we have the default customer location. Now, like we spoke about earlier, the most popular and in my opinion, the most effective option is going to be geo locate. Now, Geo locate is going to recognize where a person is from by their i p address. When the enter your website. And the awesome thing with that is that, for example, if someone is from, say, Fromm's and you have certain products that doesn't ship to Franz than those products aren't going to be showing up to that customers? That's an awesome feature that's included here. And then we have enabled taxes. Enable tax rate, own calculations. We're gonna check this one, and we're going to go through this Maurin another lecture at most Pacific, the taxes and then enable coupons. We're gonna talk about Cooper's in upcoming lecture ass. Well, we're going to keep this one checked, and then we have calculate coupon discounts sequentially. So calculating coupon discounts sequentially basically means that say that you are selling a product for $100 also at the $100 mark, the customer gets free shipping right, so a customer comes to your website and they buy something. They buy that product for $100 now they have free shipping. But they bought that product at $100 product with a coupon code. It's M percent coupon code. So now they're actually Onley paying $90 for that product, right? Because they got 10% off. So the question is, are you going to allow the coupon discounts to apply sequentially, Meaning that first they're going to get the free shipping because they actually added in something for $100 then the 10% discount code will be applied. If you check this one, this is going to be the case. If you remove this one, that means they're not going to be getting any free shipping because now there are only buying sounding for $90. Okay, I hope I broke that down. So it's clear. So going down. We also want to think about our currency option to want to know where audience where we're selling to. You know, if we're going to be selling in the U. S. When I have dollars. If we're gonna be selling Europe, wanna use euro etcetera? I'm not going to be touching this. I want to currency precision to be left, not going to be touching the separators, etcetera. So I'm gonna hit, save changes and now we're gonna head over to products. So the first thing we have is to set up the show page. Now we'll commerce it over the down this for us. We have a shop page that's just called shop, so there's nothing that we need to do here, right? If you were creating your own shopping page, you would just go ahead and add that page in here. And then that would be recognized by Wu Khmers as the shop page. And then we have redirect to the cart page after successful addition. Now, you don't want that because if they are at our website, if they go to Robin and Jesper and they are at our shop page so that would mean that whenever they click on add to cart here, they would instantly be ending up at the card page for every product that they add. Now, this is quite annoying. And honestly, this keeps people from shopping more. So I prefer not to redirect them to the card page. And then we have enabled I X add to cart bottles on archives and you want to keep this one on because that is what allows you to click on the add to cart here, which is gonna add it right to the side. That is the I X options. We were just gonna leave that one on. And then we have the placeholder image, which we don't need to be touching. Going down. We have measurements now. We spoke about this earlier as well. You can change them from killers. You can use grams, pounds, ounces. You can change the dimensions. And you want to make sure that you know if you have ah, us based audience that you're going to do something that a place to make sense to us audience. If you have a wider audience, you're probably gonna want to do your market research and see where most of the people coming from and adapted to them. Don't adapted to yourself. Adapted to your customers scrolling down. We can enable product reviews. We wanna have them So we're gonna keep these show verified Owner label on customer reviews . This can be a good thing to do to know which one have actually bought the products and then we have reviews. Can Onley be left by verified owners? Now I like to actually check these to make sure that people aren't just coming on to the website and writing a review and leaving, and that can bring down products and businesses quite quickly enable star rating on reviews . I like that and star rating should be required, not optional. So if you keep this one on the need to set a star rating, if you remove this, they don't have to set a star rating. So I'm gonna go ahead and just allow them to leave a rating with or without a star and then click on save changes. And then we move on to inventory, which is just right next to General. Here and here. We can enable our own stock management, which we have, so we're going to keep this one check and then we have the hold stock. Now hold stock means that if let's say that we have 100 of those gaming mice that we just added into the shop, right? So let's say that someone comes in and they add 50 in the quantity off those gaming mouse. That means that we only have 50 left Now. The holding stock means that on the stock on the website, it's going to say right away that hey, there's Onley 50 left in stock for 60 minutes after those 60 minutes. If the customers haven't actually bought those 50 it's going to be returning toe 100 again . So the whole stuck is for how long that is going to be allowed to be removed in the stock on the product page while they are in someone's cart and haven't been bought. And then notifications enabled low stock notifications. Yes, we want that enable out of stock notification. We want that and also notification recipient. Whenever something is low on stock who want to get notified, right? They were going on a set, that one low threshold. We can keep it a two out of stock threshold. We keep it at zero, which would mean that is going to go to out of stock status when it reaches this number. Now there's no reason to go for the out of stock status unless you have promised away some form of products to someone personally. But I always keep This is a zero and then out of stock visibility. Now, if you check this one, it's going to be hiding the actual number off the stock off the items. So let's go ahead and we check out the gaming mouse that we have here. We can see that we have 10 in stock right here, Right? And then we have hide out of stock items from the catalogue. If you check this one, it's not going to be showing up in the product catalog. Now, I don't recommend that you do this for the simple reason off. If they see something they like, they might come back later to check it out. But they aren't going to be able to order unless you have enabled that. So we're not going to be hiding it. And then we have this talk display formats. Now there are different formers. This one always shows the stock quantity, right? So that means that if we go to the shop and I click on the gaming mouse here, we can see that there's 10 in stock there right now. If I go back and I change this one to the 1st 1 on Lee, show quantity remaining in stock when low. Now, if I change to this, one likely can save changes, and I update this page. We can see that the 10 in stock here, it's just gonna change to in stock, right? There's not going to be quantity number now if we go back. There's yet another option, and that option is the never show quantity remaining in stock. Which basically means that no matter how many or how few you have, it's never going to show. But with this option is going to be showing when that it's low. For example, on Lee five left in stock, only two left in stock at cetera. So you decide which one. A lot of people like to be transparent with how many they have other. They don't like to be talking about the quantity. This is completely personal. I'm just gonna go ahead and go with the transparent option and click on save changes. And then we have downloadable products. We're going to click on this one, and we have some options. The 1st 1 is forced download. That means that whenever they buy a product, a downloadable product that down that is going to start right away, and that is an option that I like to have. So we're gonna keep this one to force download and then downloads require log in. Now, this could be a good thing. If you really want to make sure that your guests are signing up and using their account so we can check this one and then grant access to downloadable products after payment. Now, this is a no brainer, right? As soon as they have paid for something, you want to give them complete access to the products, we're going to keep this one, and we're going to save changes. All right, so we're not going to go through tax. We're not gonna go through shipping. And we're also not going to go through the payments section because all of these are heavy sections, right? We're gonna jump to accounts and privacy. So in here, we have allow customers to place orders without on account, and this can be great, but it still means that they're gonna have to sign up when they check out. Right? I enjoy having it like this. And then we have allow customers to log into existing account during check out. Now, this can be a great feature to have asked. Well, again, it comes down to how you like to treat and design your own story. We're gonna check this one and then account creation. Allow customers to create an account during check out. Also a great option to have. If you really want to promote people, signing up to your website right can be a really great option. Have allowed customers to create an account on the my account page. Now, I don't like to have this option because I wanted to be on the other places, all the down my account page. So I want them to be checking out in order to sign up, or I want them to actually go and sign up manually from the log in button. So I'm going to keep this one off when creating an account, automatically generate a use inning for the customers email address. Perfect. So they're gonna log in with your email address is the simplest way, and then when they create an account, automatically generate an account password, you can check this one, and they're also in their mail, going to be able to go back and going to the website and change the password to whatever they want. And then we have removed personal data from orders on request. Now, we're not actually going to check this because we will be saving the customer's data, and that is all in our privacy policy in our terms and conditions. But if someone actually want this removed, they can contact us, and we can go ahead and remove it ourselves. All of their information and all of their orders, Of course, but we're not gonna have them removed from the orders by their own requests, right? We're gonna collect all of the information that we can, which is going to be a part of the check out as well as for your e mail is building and for them for the upcoming future Should they want to front Easier check out. But the point is that you need a privacy policy and also in the terms and condition that protects you from this which hopefully you've gone through in the course already. And if you have gone through that section awesome, awesome. So going down, we have the personal data removal. Allow a personal day to be removed in book from orders. Now, we're not going to be checking. These were not going to be handling and working too much with personal data. So we're not going to be checking this one s well. We're going to be protecting ourselves through the privacy policy. That's right. here. So the privacy page is going to be privacy policy for Robin and Jesper. This one is already set. We have a registration privacy policy. This is your personal data will be used to support your experience throughout the website to manage access to your account and for all their purposes described in our and this is the link to our privacy policy page. So again, you need to make sure that that one is actually waterproof, right? And the same with the check out privacy policies also gonna link to your privacy policy. And then we have personal data retention. And when we haven't actually checked these once in, they're just going to be retaining. But once again, if we need to, we can go ahead and we can erase their information manual. But they're gonna have to contact us for that. And once again, everything says what we'll be doing and how we will be handling their data. Now if we use thes kind of options and they removed their own data is gonna make it much harder for us to optimize others experience. So this is why I prefer to rely on the privacy policies in the terms and conditions and make sure that if they want to have their own personal data removed, they have to come to us personal. And then we'll go from there. So we're gonna scroll down and then hit, save changes and let's head over to e mails up here Now there's not much we need to be doing here in the emails. All of these are templates there, although decreed that they're already done and you can go ahead and customize them as much as you want to say, Here's a new order. If I go ahead and likely can manage, I could be playing around with this. So, for example, we can see that the subject here, this site title New order. Now we could be changing this title to anything we could be. We could broaden it like the order you've been looking for. We could be writing anything here, and then that would be the new subject for the new order. Males right and same goes for email heading. We could be changing the heading, and then we have the email type, but we're not going to be mixing around and playing with those. We're just gonna go ahead and leave these templates as they are now scrolling down. There's a couple of more interesting options here. So we have the from name, which is Robin and Jesper. And then we have the from address, which could be, for example, contact at Robin and jesper dot com like that. And then we have the header image. Now, if we go ahead and we check out the email template that we have right now and we could have gone click here to preview your email templates, we can see that this is the way that the template looks like right now, right? So it doesn't have our collars. Doesn't really have our touch or anything. Now, what we could do here is simply to add in a your L to r logo. Now you're gonna have to play around a little bit with sites in order to feed it properly. And you could go to you could go up here to media, go to library, go ahead and click on your logo, right click on the U R l off the logo and paste it in here. And if it doesn't fit, use I pick you or any of the tools that we've been using in the course to Reese ice it and make the size really good until it fits in here. And then the food it takes, you're not gonna have wanted to say something like built with blue Bombers. You're going to want to change this to something like, Thanks for shopping with us. See you soon love Robin on just for something like that. Now there's gonna be in the food or the very bottom, the very bottom down here. We can also change the colors off course, and we're going to want to use the colors that we have been designing with them for. Austin's going to be that very specific red, and all you need to do is go ahead and grab that red color and paste it in here and you can change the entire template. Right. So let's say, for example, that this red was the color that we were using. I'm just gonna change it by clicking on here and using that color. And now have you been signing with a certain color like we have? You're gonna want to go in elementary. In our case, go ahead and just copy that code pasted in here. And we're going to get the exact same red we're gonna leave these ass we want them to and then click on save changes, and then we can check out the preview. And as you can see, it starts to get a little bit more personal, right? A little bit more off our style. Now, this isn't already, but you already know how to grab and find that code that we've been using and the signing with earlier on in the course from El Aumentar. So we're going to continue up, and we're gonna go over to advanced. Now, we don't have to really touch much about the card page because the carpet is card. You know, that's the benefit of wall commerce that create these pages for you. If you wanted to design your own card page, you could do that and then go in here, Carter Page and just choose that one page check out page similar my account similar. But here it's very important that you add the terms and Conditions page, which you will have if you've been following along with the course. Right. So we're just gonna go ahead and click on terms and condition and added, And just like that, and then we don't need to be playing around with these because all of these are just the extension. So, for example, this is going to be Robin and jesper dot com forward slash borders, Robin Ingested outcome for a size view, dash order. And in my opinion, there's no reason to be changing or doing anything about thes at all. And we're gonna go ahead and click on save changes, and that is all for the settings. Now we're gonna go more in depth about the tax, the shipping and the payments in the upcoming lectures. And guys, as always, if you have any questions whatsoever, this is why we have the Q and A. So don't hesitate on asking them. Go ahead and ask them right now, if not, just enjoy the course, and I'll see you in the next lecture. 12. Add Taxes: All right, my friends, in this lecture, we're going to be going through taxes. I know it's not the most exciting subject in the world, but if you stay with me, there's actually something included at the end of this lecture that's gonna make life so much easier. It is a template, K. So follow along and we're gonna dive straight into taxes and make the best out of this is K . It's not that complicated. All right, so here we are. If you haven't been following along Since the previous lecture, we have gone to newcomers settings. We have gone through most of the settings, and now we have gone into taxes. Okay, so let's start from the top. So the first tax option that we have is prices entered with tax. If we click on yes, then the tax is going to be showing with the price. So in other words, if we go to the shop here right now, these are the prices off the products. But if I click this one into, yes, then the taxes are going to be added onto the total price rights here, and I recommend in general, prefer not to have the taxes on the price. So I will go for no, I will enter prices exclusive off tax came and then we have calculate tax and based on you can decide on customer shipping, address, building address or shop base address. Now I recommend going for shipping address, and it is going to make more sense in just a little bit. But generally I'd recommend going for the shipping address, and then we have shipping tax class. Now, there are different monsters to standard tax. There is the reduced rate. And then there's the syrah rate and what all these rates are there right up here. We're going to be going through them in just a second. But the best option is going to be shipping tax class based on CART items. And this is because all of your items are going to be having different taxes. I'm going to show you what those different taxes are and how you can apply them. So for now, we're just gonna choose this option, and then we have round tax at sub total level instead of rounding per line. Now I recommend using this, and I prefer using this is absolutely not mandatory. But what it does is that if we are at our shop right here and let's say that I add in to progress and gonna add in this one, and I'm going to add in the gaming mouse and then I go to view cart. Now, if I don't have it enabled, we're going to see the taxes being added on to the prices and the total up here. Now, if I do have this activated, then Randt acted sub Total level means that here at the car totals to some total level, we are going to see what the tax are actually doing, right. We're going to be rounding them rights here. So that is why I prefer to be using this one. And if we click it off, then it's going to be rounding per line meaning per item like this. And then next up, we have additional tax classes, right? And here we have reduced rate at zero rate. Okay, if you look up here, there's going to be a standard rate. Then we're going to be filling out this one in a little bit. But there's also going to be reduced rates and see race but these two are added in manually from wu comers there added in here now we're actually going to be adding in additional one by ourselves also, but not yet. Okay, so these air additional tax classes, we will be adding one more, but more on that in a little bit. And then we have display prices in the shop. Now I prefer to have excluding tax. So as we can see, if we go to shop right here that all of these prices will be excluded off the taxes. Now, the difference between this one that display prices in the shop excluding tax and the 1st 1 is that if you click on yes, for this one, that means that when you are setting the prices manually, for example, when I writing that A this one is going to be costing 14 99. Then if I click this one on, Yes. That means that this 14 99 includes the taxes. That means that you have set the tax manually rights. You have set this tax manually from your own calculation of this is the total price. Now, if you click on no, then the price will be entered exclusive off tax, meaning that this price is on Lee for the product. OK, so the difference being that with this one, since we're going to be adding in taxes separately in these sections, that means that different products are gonna have different taxes that will be added once we add them to cart. So if I write in including tax right here, then that means that this type of item will include that tax in here from the tax rate that we have set not from the total sum that we have ridden in, but from the tax rate that we have set once again to clarify further if I click on Yes, here I will enterprises inclusive of tax. That means that you are entering the tax manually. If you could go No, that means that there is going to be taxes reading on the sites that will be added in by this system. And here you decide if you want that system to show the tax on your shop page and I prefer to keep that as excluded, right and then display prices during cart and check out excluding tax. Now, this is where I like to go would, including tax, because you kind of want to see what you're paying for right and how much the total sum is going to be. So I always like to have, including tax here so that there's no tax being showed here. But once you go to view cart, then you get to see what the total is going to be with the taxes. Now that's my preference. And I also think is more transparent for the customers, so they see how much they will be paying now going back. There are some more options. The 1st 1 is priced displaced Suffolk's and basically what this is is if there's going to be some further information at the price tag. So, for example, we could write excluding V 80. Now that's value added tax. If I do that and I click on save changes and I go back here and I go into our shop, then you can see that here would get the price and this is the price Suffolk's and then we can see that it says, excluding V 80. So we're being transparent that Hey, this is not with the V a T included in other words. It's going to be high your price once you added to card. Now I think that this looks terrible. That's just me. So I prefer, actually to not be using a price display subjects at all and then display attacks total. Either you could have it as itemized or s a single total. Now I prefer to be itemized so you can see it on the attempts that has been added. Right? I don't think anything else really is that interesting needed for you or for the customer. So there were going to click on save changes. Now we're going to go up, and we're going to start with the standard rates, and the rate is going to be the tax rate that is for your shop, or rather for your country. So whenever you're selling any products from your shop and you are going to be shipping those products, then you will be taxing V A T taxing war. If you're in the US, you're gonna have other taxes. But you will be taxing from the country that you recite or where you have your store right where you have your business. So for us, that's going to be right now, I'm gonna go ahead and click on insert row, and then I'm gonna make sure that all of the taxes are going to be with the Cyprus values. Right? So in Cyprus, the V A T. The value added tax is 19%. So I'm gonna make sure that the standard rate, the standard tax rate, is going to be 19% regardless, if we're shipping to Franz, if we're shipping to Germany for shipping to Sweden, Norway, you know it doesn't really matter where we are shipping because we will be shipping from Cyprus. That means we will be using the Cyprus the 80 and it's going to be similar for you as well . Now the thing that we're looking at here they are using something called an Asterix. And on Asterix Testes, little star. That means that everything is included, right? So if we have the 1st 1 that's country code. This means that these are all off the counter codes in the entire world. So this is going to apply to all the counters in the world. So if I move over to rate here and I write in 19% and then I click on save changes. This means that there is going to be a 19% tax added to all of the items. Wherever you are from in the world with you are for us where you're from Spain, Portugal doesn't matter. So if I go back now to shop and then I go to the view cart, we can see that we're having some changes going on here, right? So we can see that the sub total right now, including the V A. T is 44 1 writes. So this is the tax estimated for Cyprus because we are in Cyprus right now. And this standard right is going to be applying to all of the other countries, even though it's using geo location right now to see where I am from. Still going to be the same rate. Okay, so this is how that works. And then if we go back, we can actually change this and add new roast and do some customization. So let's say that you want ad in a specific tax for the U. S. You would write us in here, and then we're gonna goes with United States. Now the Asterix means that this is going to include all of the state codes, all of the states, all of the postal cords, all of the cities. And then you could ride in the tax rate and then the tax name. Now, here's where it gets interesting because we have a priority. So what happens when let's say that there is a I don't know. I'm just gonna make something of 12% tax rate here. So what happens when there are two tax rates being applies? The first we have the 19 1 and then we have the 12% 1. Well, this is where we start using the priority So the priority decides which one will be applied . If I write a two on this, that means that this one is going to make sure that it is applied. Firstly. Okay, now, if I used the compound here and I pressed this in, that means that mawr taxes can be added on to the same. So that means that it's going to be adding in the 19 on day, 12 percent taxes because they compound and then we also have the shipping and shipping meaning that the rates are going to be added on to the shipping, including the shipping price, and I prefer to have the shipping price just like that. I'm just gonna go ahead and remove the U. S. You can see that this were selected. I just click on remove selected ropes. So there we go. So that's the 1st 1 we have. And I'm gonna say this now. We can also move over to reduced rates and reduce rates is going to be when there are certain services for your country that has reduced taxes. So, for example, there are two reduced V A T rates in Cyprus, one at 9% for certain services such asked catering such as certain accommodations such as certain mobility's, like taxi services and such. They're only gonna have a 9% tax rate, so I could add him that. But what is more interesting is that selling things such as books is going to be having a 5% reduced rates, so there's 9%. Then there's 5%. So what, I can go ahead and do here is go ahead and make sure that this applies to all the countries and then the rate, and I'm going to add the rate to 5% so they reduce tax rates is going to be 5%. And then I could name this books, for example, and then I could click on save Changes. So what this means, For example, if we go back here now, we know that this is an e book. But if we pretend that this is a physical book, because E books actually have a different tax rate, if we pretend that this is a physical book, what I could do it, that I could go into the product right here, then I could go up, Hayward says. And it product. And now we are at the product page rights, and then I can scroll all the way down until, with Seaward says, tax status and tax class right and tax status. There's, of course, we want everything to be taxable and then the tax class. That means that we could put this at a reduced rate so you would put this to a reduced rate and then we click on update. Then that means that instead off getting the 19% tax is going to be getting the 5% tax instead. So this is a really good thing to do when you know which product that you're selling that haven't which type of tax rate and the way to find that out. It's simply and the best by far by using an accountant, right? That's really gonna help if you don't have an accountant. I mean, there's always Google, and you can find all of the information online, and it's going to be specific to your country where you are from again. We have our business right now here in Cyprus. So that means that we're going to be using the cypress V A T. Now I'm going to put this one back to Standard. I'm not gonna play around with this because I'm gonna show you another example in just a little bit. But that is going to be changing up this product price completely when it comes to the cart in here, because now it has 19%. But if I change that, it would only have 5% meaning that this price would be lower. Okay, Now, if we go back in here, there's also something that zero rate rates. Okay, now that basically is exactly what it sounds. It means no tax and there are certain things in Cyprus. It allows you to be tax exempt, meaning not to be taxed. Such a certain healthcare services, such a surgeon education services. But also this is important to know that when it comes to taxing the standard rates and the reduced rates, this is going to be when you are selling things to customers. But several rates are going to be when you are selling things to companies, because when you are selling things to companies B two B as it's known as when you were selling things to companies, they get to add their old V 80 so they take care off their own V A T. And you Onley used to syrah rates for them so that they do the V A t themselves. So to reiterate, there are two purposes for the serial rates. One is going to be four certain things such as education and surgeon healthcare provider services, and the second is going to be when you were selling to businesses right then you won't be taxing them. They will be taxing themselves with their own tax v a t number. Now what we're gonna go ahead and do is go to tax option and we're going to is what I was talking about in the beginning. Use a template because there's one more thing we want to add in and that is to click in here, hit, enter and right digital products like that and then save changes. Now digital products is a little bit different. Digital products actually make sure that you need to tax people in the country that they are from bright. So all of the products that we are selling to a certain country we will be taxing from Cyprus with Cyprus v 80. But if we're selling to Germany and we're selling a digital product, we're going to need to use Germany's the 80. So this is where it gets a little bit trickier. So we added in digital products here, and if we look to the top, we have digital products rates. If I click in here, we get to add in a certain rate for digital products and as we know, there's a lot of conference using the V A T system note us and does not use to V A T system . So what, we're gonna go ahead and do is actually import a C S v file. And really, really great news, guys. This see SV file is going to be in the resource is that this is what I mean with the template there's gonna make everything so much easier. And then I'm gonna go ahead and choose file. I'm gonna add in this file and then click on upload file and imports. So there it's all done. We're going to click on view tax rates and then we're gonna click on digital product rates . And as you can see here they all are. They've all been added with their specific country code, the European country and their unique tax V a T tax rates. So, looking at Cyprus, for example, it's automatically using the 19% V a t. So this is such a short cut. It's amazing. You can use this. All they need to do is go ahead and download it from the resource is then go to tax options in here and right in the digital products below here. Could it can save changes, is gonna add this new digital product rates. You're gonna click in here, and that's simply import CS. We now note that you're gonna want to name a digital products, right? Because digital product is the value in the C S V file it you're importing. So if you name this one, something else all of these values might end up. So if you name it something else than digital products than all of these values might, for example, end up in standard rates because it can't find the digital products value. So with all of these added, that means that now when I go back to Khartoum, for example, and now I go to this e book, which is a digital product, and then I click on edit product appear and then scroll down. We can change the tax class to digital products, right? And the amazing thing with this is off course that now you're going to be taxed based on which country you are from, Right? So that's really, really great news. And it also changes the entire ballgame because not taxes becomes so much simpler. So to reiterate, the standard taxes when you were selling physical products are gonna be from the country that you have your business in for us. That Cyprus. So that means 19% of the 80 taxes reduced tax rates are for certain things. So for us in Cyprus, that's 5% and 9% on certain items in certain services. So we're gonna help those individually. All of the other items you, Adnan, are gonna have standard rates as a standard. But certain items such as our digital products where we just going to go ahead, go to that item as we're adding it in and add in that tax rates king. Now, if you are from the US, the rules are a little bit different now, if you are using a nexus and you have a high presence in certain states, then you're going to be using different tax values. And they can also compound. So but you're gonna want to do in this case, honestly, is to use an accountant and for the rest of us, when it comes to calculating our taxes would simply need to know which country we are from , or at least where we have our business. Check out what the standard V A T rates are, or if you're from the US, check out those specific taxes that you have. If you have a high presence, you're using the nexus. We want to talk with an accountant or you want to research that information as well. Check out the reduced rates No one to use to Syria race and finally, add in the digital products. And that does it for the taxes section. If you have any questions, guys will be in the Q and A. Now remember, I am not an accountant, and if you're serious about this, I recommend that you do. Go ahead and get an accountant and one last thing. If you're in the US and you have a nexus or high presence or you just need some help, you can go ahead and you can use the tax jar dot com service. No tax jar is amazing because it is a plug in and a service that's gonna check out and calculate all of the different states and all off their different taxes for you. They're also going to be helping you with invoices, which I believe is for an extra fee, but it generates. They're gonna help you Ah, lot when it comes to living in the U. S. And taxing from the us, especially using nexus is. So If you are in the US and you're serious about your business and you are making a good income or you're about to make a good income, go ahead and check out tax George dot com. It's gonna be in the resource is and you wanna use their service, right? Okay, guys, that those that I'll see you in the next lecture. 13. Add Shipping: All right, guys, in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to add in different shipping alternatives. So let's get right into it. So if we go to the back end off, our website would go to woo Coomer's settings and then click up here where we have shipping , we're gonna end up in this big, nice area with this all this purple covering the screen. Now, the first thing that we're gonna learn how to do is add a shipping soul. Now, before we do that, I want you to note something. And that is that a shipping Sonus actually already added. And that shipping so is called locations not covered by your other sons. So right now, you actually already have a shipping zone, if you will. Added in that says that there is no method offered to this soul, right? So that means that by default right now, you're not actually shipping anywhere. So what, we're gonna go ahead and do is learn how to add in shipping to specific places in, for example, Europe or in the us, And then I'm gonna show you how to add in shipping for the entire world. For example, if you're drop shipping. So all we're gonna do is click here on Add shipping soon, and then we're going to give this own a name. So let's call this Europe, for example, just like that. And then we can hang, adding, Let's say we're gonna add in Cyprus because that's where we currently are. And because we're using geo location tracking. That's where the website is going to recognize those from so good at in Sweden. We get out in Norway, we could add in, you know, a bunch of different countries. You could just click on them from this list just like this. Now it's completely up to have many one ad for this example. We're just gonna use these two now. The next thing you can do is limit to specific sip zones and post coats. But we're not gonna do that right now. And then we have the shipping methods. So the first thing that would do is just click on add shipping method down here, and there are three different shipping methods and the 1st 1 is flat rate, and the flat rate method is really straightforward. It's a fixed rate for your shipping, so you could go ahead and we add in the shipping method, then we could add in a fixed price. So, for example, we could add in a flat rate shipping off, let's say, $3. So that means that no matter how many products were going to be adding in, our card is still just going to be $3. That's the flat rate. Now what we're gonna go ahead and do is go down here and click on edit. And here we can first of all, give the A name to the method, and this is a name that's gonna show up for them as well. So we could just call this shipping, for example, And then if you want the shipping cost to be taxable now, I'm going to select known and then the cost. So let's say that the shipping cost is $3 then I click on save changes, and then we go back here to our website and I'm just gonna go ahead and update our cart right here, and then we can see that the current shipping is $3 it's shipping to Cyprus, and once again it's recognizing that I am from Cyprus because of the geo location. That's how it knows from my I p address. So writing that we have a flat rate shipping that's just called shipping, that's for $3. Okay, now, you could edit this further. You could be adding in some code. So if you wanna have a flat percentage, for example, let's say that you want the shipping to be five or 10% Let's say 10% Then you would write. First, we're gonna put up a wall like this. And if you're on a Mac computer, that's option eight. I believe if you're in a PC, that's gonna be Ault eight just like this. And then I'm gonna write just like it says down their fee, percent equals. And then I'm going to do a quotation mark 10 quotation mark and then end wall by option nine just like this. So this means that the shipping cost is going to be 10% off whatever is in the card. So now if I go ahead and I saved these changes and we go back to the cart and we update this one, we can see right now shipping is that $3? And if I update it, it's to 20. So now if I had in a bunch of more gaming minds, let's say that I add 20 more and check out the shipping is to 20. And if I update the cart, it's 43 98. Quite a heavy shipping cost, wouldn't you say? So This is another way that you can be adding him for your shipping if you don't want to use a flat rate. But most of the time, the easiest way is just gonna be to add in a flat race. So, for example, you could add in three and then it's going to be for three just like this. Now we could also add in a shipping method, and we could add in free shipping. And free shipping is going to be on either as free shipping by itself or under certain circumstances. So, for example, if I go down and I click on edit once again, then we could use keep the name free shipping because the house is a lovely clean to it, doesn't it? And then the free shipping requires either not available, meaning it's just gonna be free shipping. Hey, great news right or we could have a valid free shipping coupon. So that means that they would need a certain coupon, which we're gonna go through later to get the free shipping or a minimum order amount or a minimum order amount or a coupon or a minimum order amount and a coupon, Right? So I prefer to use this one a minimum order amount. So let's say that there's going to be free shipping for, you know, when they order for $50. So let's go like this. And then we're gonna save changes and then we go back and we can see that right now the sub tonalist 541 because we went a little bit crazy, right? So let's say that I only have one in quantity here, and I update this cart. So now the total cost is $44 meaning that the shipping is at a flat rate of $3 like we just said. But if I go ahead and I had one more gaming myself from one, I added up to to sit, goes over $50 then update the cart. Suddenly I get the option for free shipping and I can just click that one in here, which is awesome, isn't it? So this is how you add in the possibility for free shipping as well. Now there's yet another one. Another shipping method which is probably the same place which is just local pickup. So this has really nothing to it. You just click on add shipping method, you go ahead and click on edit, and then you set a cost, and then you click on save changes, and pretty much that is it. But this is probably the least use one. And, you know, if you're going to be shipping abroad, chances are you're going to be using a UPS service you're going to want to use on free shipping methods. Or maybe you're even going to want to be using flexible shipping. And I'm going to show you what that is in just a little bit. So let's go ahead and delete this one. I'm gonna delete this one as well. I'm just gonna keep the flat rate like this for now. So I'm gonna click on save changes, and then I'm going to go up and move over to shipping options now in here, we have a couple of options, the 1st 1 being enabled the shipping calculator on the card page. Now I don't think that's a good idea. First of all, I don't think it looks good, but also I don't think you want to allow the customers to be playing around with the shipping cost like that. That shouldn't be a concern. The main focus should be on your product, so I prefer to click that one away. And honestly, I also prefer to use this one hide shipping costs until on address is entered. The reason for this is because I also like to change the shipping destination from billing address to shipping address because a lot of the times people are going to be placing orders on your website and they're gonna have a different billing address than shipping address. But the one this really matters is the shipping address, right? So this is why I prefer to use this one, and then we're not going to be enabling in a debug mode. So I'm gonna save the changes, and then we can go back and let's just update here, and then we can see that there are no calculations right for the shipping costs, which I think it's a really, really good idea. But for demonstration purposes, so I can show you how the flexible option works. I'm gonna go ahead and go back, and I'm going to click this one away and click on save changes. But remember, this is what I generally prefer when I'm actually using the shop. But for demonstration purposes, I'm gonna click this one open so it's not checked. Update this page and there will bring the shipping back. All right, so the next thing that we have is shipping classes. No shipping classes isn't very interesting. It allows you to add in search things such as, You know, if you have fragile objects, if you have had the objects, then you can actually go in on your items, and you could be adding in those shipping options for that item. Now, I don't think this is a very good idea because it over complicates it. So what I recommend that we do instead is use something that's known as flexible shipping and flexible shipping can be anything you want it to be. It's good, for example, be that the shipping cost is going to be based on a certain weight. So between this and this way, it's gonna be one cost between another two way. It's gonna be another cost. Or it could be that if you buy for this price to get this shipping Coast, if you buy for this price to get another shipping costs, etcetera, etcetera, and to do this we're gonna need a plug in. So let's go ahead and head over down here to plug ins and then add new and then here at search plug ins. I'm gonna start for flexible shipping just like that. Now there are a bunch of really good plug ins, and I've tried most of them. This is a plug in that I really like. It's rumors, weight based shipping. It's super simple, and it allows you to do wait based calculations for your shipping. Now, for demonstration purposes, we're gonna use another plugging because I want to show you how you can also use the value off price using different price ranges. So we're going to scroll down until we find this one that's known as rumors table Great shipping by G. E. M. Now this one isn't being updated very frequently and actually terribly badly. And it has very few active installs right now. And why, I have no idea. Because for me, this is the one that's been working for a long time, is probably the simplest off the bunch as well. So this is the one that we're going to be using. We're gonna go ahead and click on install now and then click on Activates. All right, there, it's activated. So all we're gonna do now is go back to Wu comers and go back to settings. Go back to shipping appear and then we can go back to your apparent just click on edit. And then I'm gonna click on add shipping method and here we're going to see a new option right now, this called table rate. So we're gonna click there and just click on add shipping method. So there it is, and then we click on edit. So this is where it gets interesting. Now all we need to do is go ahead and click on, add new here at the least of shipping methods. Click on, add new, and then we're gonna enable this shipping method. So the 1st 1 is going to be the method title so we could call it U. P s. No, you piss is probably the biggest parcel, a delivery and tracking network in the entire world. I think it's pretty safe to go by that name since they will be the one delivering in most of the cases and then a handling fee. I'm gonna leave this one blank because we're not gonna charge when handling fee gonna make this not taxable. Now, this is where it gets really interesting. Here, we can see the table rates right so we can make its able based on either the weight or the price. So let's start off with weight. So let's say that anything between the weight off zero and the weight off one in 19 9 kilos noticed that it's a skill O se, or because that's in our settings is gonna have a shipping cost off. You know, let's say $33. Then we get at the new rate as well. So anything between two kilos Onda se 4 99 is gonna have a shipping cost off five and then let's also add one new rate. This is anything between five kilos on, Let's just, you know, as much weight as possible is gonna have a shipping Reiter shipping cost off $10 just like that. So I'm gonna go ahead and I'm going to click on save changes. So now if we go back to cart right here and we update this page, we can see that the UPS option is currently $3. We have shipping. Would have you pissed is currently at $3. We're probably gonna want to disable this one. So for demonstration purposes, I'm going to go back and disabled that one. I'm just going to click on shipping sones. I'm just going to click on Europe and then the shipping here that I've added the flat rate . I'm gonna click on delete, click on save changes, go back and update this page, and they would go. So now we only have the ups. So the UPS is currently at $3 that's because, remember, we actually did set a weight for this mouse or Mize in this case because there's several off them, so it's going to $3. But let's say that I bought 20 off them and I updated this card. Then the UPS cost of $3 would be changing to $5 because now the wait is increased. I don't know how much the way it is, precisely, but it's definitely falls in between 1 99 I think we said it. It's 4 99 right? And now, if I would buy, say, 50 and I update the card, chances are this is gonna wait over five kilos, and the UPS cost here from $5 it's gonna increase to $10. So this is what we call flexible shipping rates. And it allows us to flicks the shipping costs so that you don't have to lose any money on the shipping itself, Right? So you can just make sure that you're selling all of your products, getting the prophet that you're looking for, and it's gonna be easy for you to make your budget with high your accuracy as well. So going back, this is how the table rate works. Okay, Now, the final thing that I wanted to show you in here is if we go back to shipping sons now, remember, I spoke about locations not covered by your other sons. They are currently set to offer no shipping methods. This makes a lot of sense so that you can make sure that you add in your own shipping soon . And you only ship to the places where you can actually shape about your products, and this is worth calculating. How much does it cost? How long does it take? Are there in the available options? Even you're gonna want to do your calculations for this. Obviously, if you're seventies your product, this is not an issue. Then we wouldn't even be in this section. However, if you are drop shipping, meaning you're only the middle hand, you're not actually storing any items. Then you could go ahead and click down here, which has managed shipping methods, and you could actually add in a shipping method here you could add in a flat rate you could add in a table rate, free shipping anything you would want to, and this would cover the rest off the world right, And it's going to cover the rest of the world, assuming off course that you then remove this one and then you could also add in different shipping songs to give them different shipping options. Maybe some sons were gonna be cheaper. Some sounds we're gonna be and more expensive. So, for example, shipping to Asia for us is gonna cost a little bit more. Shipping to Europe is going to cost a little bit less, so you just need to do your calculations. So this is how the shipping rates work and how you add shipping inflexible, chipping to your wu comers, See in the next lecture, guys. 14. Add Payment Methods: All right, guys, in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to start sitting up payment gateways for our shop so that we can start receiving money for what we're selling. There's a pretty great idea, isn't it? Let's get started. So we are at the back end for website. We have gone to newcomers settings and then hovered up here to payments. And as we can see, there are a couple of different payment options. We have the direct bank transfer, the chick payments. We could be used in cash on delivery, but most interestingly, we can be using PayPal now. PayPal is so interesting because first and foremost, a lot of people have PayPal and they can't pay through that with their PayPal cash. But also, papal allows you to use your credit card for payment. So this is probably the most versatile and easiest off the options. So we're gonna go ahead and set that one up. So moving to the right, we're gonna click on set up, and then we're simply going to click on enable PayPal standards. So now the option is enabled. Now the title is gonna be the title. This will be displayed. Asked the payment option at the check out. We don't have to touch that. It's PayPal, right? And then the description is gonna show there as well. So it says pay via PayPal. You can pay with your credit card if you don't have a PayPal account, and that is terrific. That is exactly why it's so versatile and great. And then we have the PayPal male. So this is obviously gonna be the mail for your PayPal account. You want to nail this one because this is where you get paid, right? So let's say that it's called payments at Robin and jesper dot com. Just like that scrolling down, we have the papal sandbox option. Now the people sandbox option allows you to create fake accounts so that you can try out the money transfers from the fake account on PayPal to your website and vice versa just to see that everything is working properly. You don't need to use this one, but if you want to air on the safe side, you can go ahead and do that. You can just click and developer account and see how it works, how to set it up, etcetera, and we don't need to worry about logging in a debugging. Don't need to worry about that. We want to have the I p and even notifications. If they are in the refund that in charge backs It said we will be notified and then the receiver email for these. So we're just gonna have payments at Robin and Jesper? Red dots come like that. We don't have to wear about PayPal. Identity Token. Now, the invoice prefix is going to be VC Wish done for woo comers and then the number for the invoices. Now, obviously, if you have multiple stores, you're gonna want to make sure that they are all unique in their invoice prefix. So maybe VC two. Or maybe we could be calling it r N store Juan or in store two or whatever the store would be called to make them unique. If you have multiple stores, multiple woo calmer stores, that is, and then send shipping details to PayPal instead of building that this is a security option , and I recommend that we go ahead and just leave it like this. We don't have to worry about address overriding. We can just skip this one and the payment action. We have two options. They will have the capture or authorized. Now the differences with capture. If someone goes ahead and they pay on your website, then PayPal issue is gonna go ahead and grab the money and all this well in the world with authorized, you're gonna have to authorize that transaction before the transaction actually happens. This is gonna take time for the customer. That's gonna take time for you. I don't recommend this option, So we're gonna go ahead and just use capture instead of authorized. We don't have to wear about the Page Styler image. You are l none of that or the A P I credentials. All we're gonna do is click on save changes. So, guys, if you don't have a PayPal account, I'm gonna put this link in resource that you can go ahead and sign up for one, and you're gonna need to sign up for a business account so that you can receive money if you don't actually have a business or any tax. I d don't worry. There's always an option where you can sign up with your personal I d. So you don't actually need that So all you're going to go ahead and do is sign up for a business account, go through all of that and then right in that business email right here, right, Your PayPal mate. And you're gonna get paid through there. So in order to see if this works, I've actually done a incognito window also knowing it's a private window so they don't recognize that it's me here. And then I'm gonna go ahead and just go to the shop and let's say, Well, I really like this e book and gonna add this to cart the dog color. That's just awesome. Let's do I'm gonna have three off these. I'm going to select the green one, maybe go from medium. Yeah, there's gonna be really good. So they were goes to now we have four items. We have the e book who had the flashing dark color. That's $82 already. Let's go ahead and check out. So here in the check out, we can see that we do have PayPal as an option in order to check out with. So let's say that I feel up all of my information here, and then once you're done you're gonna have to select here. I have read and agree to the website. Terms and conditions thes are the terms of and conditions we have created earlier by right click. And I opened this in a new private tab. We're gonna get linked right to our terms and conditions right here. Right. So this is perfect. We're feel all of this is we also have the ability to ship to a different address Should we want to do that? And there can be ordered notes, but we're gonna go ahead and proceed to people. So now all I would have to do is log in with my PayPal account, and then this amount would be paid to our business, right? And from this PayPal account. So that means that we have a shop that's up and running, and everything is working the way that it should really Well done, guys. So in the next lecture, we're gonna go ahead and learn how to create coupon codes in order for marketing purposes for any promotions that were up to etcetera, etcetera. So see you in the next lecture, guys. 15. Create a Coupon Code: All right, guys, in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to create coupon codes. Let's get right into it. So here we are, at the back end of for a website. We're gonna go ahead and go down to woo comers and then coupons, and then we're gonna click on create your first coupon. And the first thing that we can do is to name the coupon for the code itself. So let's say that we're offering a 15% discount. We might want to name something like 15 Discount something like that. So you wanted to be one word, preferably for the coupon, and then we can have a description for it. Get a 15% discount on your order like that. And then the first thing that we can set up is what type of discount do want it to be? Do we have want to have a certain percent discount it fixed carte discount or fix product discount. Now, the 1st 1 is gonna be a percent discount, which is the one we've actually set up here, at least in the description. And then we have a fixed card discount, which is gonna be a discount across the entire card and then a fix product this come which is not going to be by percentage. Okay, so we're gonna go for percentage discount, and then the coupon amount. And we already said it to be 15% right is a really big nice discount, and then allow free shipping. And we can set this one if you want free shipping to be along with the coupon. And now, remember, we had the free shipping option where we were shaking out the shipping options earlier. We could had have a requirement to use a code or a code and a requirement, etcetera, etcetera. So you would have to activate that one and then connected to this code. Now, for these from we're not going to allow any free shipping. All right? And then we could have a coupon expiry date. So let's say that we want to use it for, you know, ah week, we could go. Ah, a week with this one, and then we're gonna go over to use such restrictions. Now, the first restriction is gonna be How much do you need to spend in order to use this? So let's say that you need to spend at least $50 there is no maximum spent. Even though it could be $100 something, there's no reason for that. And then if you wanted to be for individual use Onley meaning that you cannot use thes or match these with some other coupon. So let's say that you have a coupon for, you know, $10 discount and then you have 15% discount as well. With this one, you can Onley use this discount by itself and then the next option is exclude sale items Now remember, were able to put certain items on sale if we could come this one exclude. That means that this coupon is not gonna be available for those items that are on sale. So we're gonna excluded for this example Now, here we could also get really specific so we could make sure, for example, that this discount on Lee works for certain products. So if I search for coaching, for example, we can see that we have our coaching products that we have set up with. The third is 69 220 minutes. So let's set this up for the coaching. 60 minutes meaning that this is going to be able to be used on this product. We can also exclude certain products that we don't want it to be used for, not allow it for it to be used for. So if I start for coaching again, we can exclude, for example, the 30 minute coaching right up here. We could also include all of the coaching as an option there. And then we have the product categories. We could be choosing one of the categories to apply it with. We can exclude an entire category, and then we can also Onley allow certain email. So, for example, if you know certain amount of customers that are big, big shoppers on your website, you could go ahead and so called white list those to make sure that Onley those people are the ones allowed to use this coupon code. Okay, now for this, I'm gonna remove these ones just like that, and then we move over to use such limits. Now, the 1st 1 is usage limits per coupon. A. This is the total amount off times they did scoop on. It's gonna be allowed to be used before it expires. So if I put this to 50 that means that after this coupon code has been used in a total of 50 times, or rather by 50 people, it's no longer going to be available is going to stop working. Then we also have the limits. Use such two X items. How many items are you gonna allow it to be used for? So let's say you know it's gonna be possible to use it for three items on Lee. Now, remember, I wrote for your order, so I'm going to keep this 20 which means that it applies to all of the qualifying items. But you could limit that and then usage limit per user. And I'm gonna write once. So a certain user can only use this coupon code once, right? They would go and then I'm gonna go ahead and publish this code. So now if I move over to the cart in here and I've right in, for example, 15 discount just like this, we can see the total right now is $44 I apply this coupon. We can see that we get a warning. The minimum spend for this coupon is $50 we have only spent 4 to 4, Right? So let's buy one more e book. You know why not? Why not have more e books, update the cart, and then we're gonna write it in again 15 discount and then click on apply coupon. So now we can see that we have gotten a discount for $5.36. And the reason that the discount isn't bigger is because if we open this one the gaming mouse in a new tab, we can actually see that the gaming mouse is on sale. And remember, this is not gonna apply for items on sale. So if I would go ahead and remove the gaming mouse and then I add in, let's say I'm wanted by six of these and then I update the cart and now I reapply 15 discount and then apply coupon. We can see that we're getting a bigger, a nicer discount right now because this is not on. Sales were getting the full discount rather than a selective discount like last time. Because one of the product waas on sale now going back, you can, of course, be creating more as well all you need to do is click here and add coupon in the upper left corner and then create another one. Let's send college 1 $10 get $10 off off coaching like that and then we're gonna have fixed product discount for this one, and we're gonna have it for 10 right? And we're not going to set an expiry date. We're gonna go to use a restriction, we're gonna search for product. And now I'm gonna search for coaching, adding coaching here, which is all of the coach ings just like this. And then I'm gonna go ahead and click on Publish and then go back, and now you can see that if I write in $10 right here and apply the coupon, you can see this coupon is not applicable to selected products. But if I go to the shop and then I go to the coaching and go to select options and let's say that I want to go for a 90 minute coaching session, I'm gonna click on add to cart and then we go back here and we go to view cart. Now, I could actually go ahead and use this $10 coupon, Apply coupon and we can see. Sorry. Coupon discussed. Already been applying cannot be used in conjunction with other coupons. So this is where the magic start happening with the coupons in order to make sure that everything sinks. So all we need to do right now is go back. Two coupons go to the 15 discount go to uses restriction and then individual use Onley, uncheck that one click and update, go back and then writing $10 then click on apply coupon. And now, suddenly we're getting that that big, nice discount going on, which is really, really nice, right? And we can see that the total isn't actually a minus $10 here right now. And that is because the V A T, which we are including here on this page, are being added in and the calculation. So when we're looking at the car totals, we actually end up with a different change from this coupon. Even though the coupon valued self is $10 But the minus $10 along with this 15% change is gonna change up this amount as well. But that is how you said that fixed a month. Now we can also be setting a fixed cart amount, which would be changing the amount for the entire card. So how you decide to use your Cooper's is completely up to you now. Generally, I prefer to be using a percent discount because I just think that most discount works the best in percentages. But this is going to be completely up to you from what's sort off promotions. You're doing what kind of marketing you're doing. And also, of course, you can just have, you know, a free shipping discount enabled as well offer them a code, and then they would have a free shipping options. So this is how you play around and add in discounts. And, of course, if you have any questions will be in the Q and A. Let's move on to the next lecture 16. Add Images to Categories: in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to add images Were pictures to our categories. Let's get started. So here we are at our beautiful shop. Now, if we go ahead and go to customize and then move down to newcomers and then archives remember, this is an archive page clicking archives right there. And then we changed the shop page display would give this in an earlier lecture, and we change it to categories that we can see that this isn't really looking to Good. Now we sit. So what we're gonna do is that we're gonna go ahead and add images toe all off these categories. So let's do that right now. I'm gonna go ahead and go to the back and off the for websites here, and then I'm gonna go down to woo comers, and then I'm gonna go down to products and then categories. Now, this is where you can start adding in all off the images for the category. So all I would need to do for this one. For example, digital products is click on edit, scroll down and they're upload or add image. And then I would go ahead and add in this one, This product we can use image scroll down and click on updates. Now, a really quickly to do this is by going back here two categories. And then if you're on a Mac computer, you can hold down the command key and just click on the edit on all off these sections. So, for example, I would click on command for gaming. I would click on a commanding click on edit for hardware hosting pets and services just like that. So now I have all of these different tabs. You could also just go ahead and right click in, click on open link in New tab on a PC. I'm not sure if it's the shift or all. You can just try that one out for yourself. And now it's gonna be a little bit quicker because here we have the gaming. We go down, click on upload image. Choose the mouse. Use image scroll down, update go to next. It's the hardware Go down, upload image. Used his image, use image, scroll down, update. And now I'm just gonna go ahead and do this and all off the category so they would have hosting. So there we go. I just updated them also. Now, if I go back here to coast customize shop and I just go ahead and I update this page, I'm gonna have to click on leave. Paige will go back to newcomers, go back to archives, show products and click on the show categories once again. Now, all of these products have an image except on categorize. Now, I shouldn't actually have anything linked to uncap. Big arise. That is my bad. So if I go ahead and click on it, we could see no problems were found matching your selection. So that is something that you might actually want to go ahead and go back to product categories, make sure not is linked to it, and then remove it. Now for us, I'm not going to save us from categories because I don't think that looks very nice. But there's an option to actually use and show the categories when you have a lot of items on your shop. And now you know how to add images to them. All right, guys. Great. See, in the next lecture 17. Fulfill Orders: All right, my friends, in this lecture, we're gonna learn how to fulfill the orders that we're getting. So let's get started. So we are at the back end for website. All we're gonna do is go down to Luke Somers and then move over to orders. So this is where all of your orders are going to appear, right? So whenever someone goes to your website, they adding a bunch of stuff in the car to go ahead and they pay for it or they don't pay for it. Even those orders air going to end up here. And as you can see right now, there is one order, and that is from me. And we can see that that one got canceled. Now let's go through what we can do here. Now The 1st 1 is obvious, and that is the bulk actions that we can take by selecting this one. Now, the bulk action we conduce, we can move to trash. We can move to processing, move to on hold and move the starters to complete it. We're gonna go through what all of those means in a little bit now. We can also preview the order by clicking on the eye here. So we get to see all of the information about us. What? We were buying all of the shipping details, etcetera, etcetera. Now we can also go into the orders. Manual is simply by clicking on the order right here. So in here we can see that the order statuses cancel. Well, because the order was never fulfilled, right? We never actually went through with the order. Now there are a couple of different statuses and the 1st 1 canceled being obviously good. Cancel nothing happened. But then we also have pending payment. And whenever there is pending payment, that means that people is working on verifying that the payment has gone through. Now then we also have processing and processing means that the payment has gone through and it's up to you now to go ahead and complete the order. If it is on hold, that is usually going to mean that the payment hasn't gone through yet. And for example, if you choose the authorized option rather than the capture option, you're gonna need to go ahead and change it to processing manually. And that is going to allow the money to come to your PayPal account. Now, I still recommend that you use the capture rather than authorized option when it comes to the payment gates. And then we have completed and you want to set completed on the order when you have completed the order. And, of course, what a completed order means is completely dependent on how you're actually running your shop and what it's for. So, for example, if you're offering a service, you might only want to change it to complete it once you have actually performed the service for the person. If you have a drop shipping business, you probably want to go ahead and make sure that everything is working. The order has been sent from your supplier and to that customer, and then he can change to complete it. Now, if you have supplying all of the items yourself, you want to pack everything you want to make sure that it's actually read and has been sent , and then you can change it to complete it. You see where I'm getting at here that completed. It's going to mean different things for different types off businesses, and then we also have cancelled Well, I think we went through that one. Refund it. Well, if you got refund and then failed if something simply failed so what you want to do once you've actually completed it, let's go ahead and set this to completed just like this. And in here, there are a couple of things we can do. We can check out the status of, For example, if we're sending a night and we can see where we wanted to be shipped to, we could contact the customer through email and even through phone right here. We get to see the items that they bought here. We can actually refund them if that were the case. Now, here are some custom feels and values that we could be adding and should we want to, But we're not going to be playing around with this. This no need for that. And if there's a downloadable product here, we can grant permission. And that is gonna be, for example, the way to fulfill and complete the order. If we're selling the e book, for example. So I would just right e book like this at this one in the link weaken grant access and then this person is gonna have access to download this e book. Right? Get access to this product. Then we can also change em. Play around with notes here. So right now the order notes says unpaid order. Council time limit. Read. Order Status changed from pending payment to canceled. Right now, we can also add in a private note that isn't note for ourselves, you know, whatever. We're working on the order. We're doing something we're preparing it. We're facing into troubles, etcetera. And then we can also change this to note to customers. So, for example, if you get the order in here and you get the tracking I d the shipment, I d whatever that is, you could just copy paste that and then add that one right in here. Now, if you're gonna make a habit off actually standing them the order idea of attracting I d. I recommend that you go ahead and do a template in a text document, and then just copy pays it for your customers, right? And then we also have the order actions in here, and this is gonna be you know, for example, if you want to send order details to a customer, so they make the orders manually from this mail. Now, if they do that, the problem is and they make the payment from there that the stock isn't gonna be reduced through the website. So you have to reduce to stop yourself. So I don't recommend that you use that sort of order action. And finally, I want to say that Luke Somers is extremely, extremely versatile. So it depends completely on what kind of business that you were doing and how you decide to operate it. And, needless to say, whatever issue that you're going to be facing along with rumors, there's probably going to be a plug in for it. You wanna, you know, improve your order fulfillment. You wanna work on drop shipping, you want to improve services, you want to make order management easier.
