  • Limits on available inventory
  • Shipping rates automatically applied based on location of customer
  • Tax rates automatically applied based on location of customer
  • Auto-generated emails to site owner and customer for new orders, invoices, etc.

Don’t have a programming background? No worries, we’ll start from scratch. You’ll learn how to register a domain name, set up web hosting, and install WordPress (in other words, everything you need to get your site live on the internet). Then we’ll start customizing the site with WordPress. You’ll be able to quickly and easily add content and customize the design. All without writing code.

We’ll be using the WooCommerce plugin and the Storefront theme to create the site. WooCommerce is one of the most widely used tools for creating an eCommerce site, and Storefront is a theme built specifically for WooCommerce.

We’ve cut out the fluff so that you can get your website online as quickly as possible and start selling products. Now go get started!
