So before we begin building our online store, I think it's important that we have a quick overview off e commerce in general. I am over here on the website called Jack Thread Stock Calm, and you may or may not be familiar with this side, but this is where I tend to buy most of my clothes. I do enjoy buying from them because they give you the option off trying out your clothes reef, actually painful them and have been very happy with the clothes and shoes off gotten from them over the last few years. Now, whether it's a clothing store or a store that sells for the physical products like electron , ICS, computers, toys, food, you name it, or even if it's an online store that sells digital products like software, there is a standard to all these online stores. There is a standard process for the entire transaction from the potential client picking out a product and then paying for that product. That is pretty much a standard that you're gonna have on every one of this online stores. In the case of Jack Threads and your own online store, you would want to make your products and services as easy to find as possible. Now, if it's a clothing stall like Jack Foods in particular on the clothing they have their categories. They have out outerwear. They have shirts, tees, pants, denim and so on and so forth. So this is all of the ways how they make it very easy for the potential clients and customers to find what it is that they're looking for. They have clothing, they have shoes and then under shoes. They have sub categories as well. They've got boots and sneakers and shoes. They've got new arrivals and and have also good accessories. And then again, on the accessories they have watches, bags, hats. So you can, in an instance, find what it is that you're looking for. I as an example. Let's say I mean you, uh, client, a new potential client customer. I come in here, I want to buy a shirt. I can come on the clothing and I see shirts Instantly I click on shirts and then over here they do have a process off Children to find exactly that kind of show Did you looking for? They have the size they have the lifestyle, which this is kind of unique, I think, to Jack Threads on other online stores that I know if I don't really know of any other only stores that offers this sort of subcategory on the lifestyle. But anyway, I may be wrong. I don't really buy includes that much on lines in a way, so. But anyway, they've got size lifestyle. They have sleeve length. They have style brand, so you have the option of even for the narrowing down your search. So in distances, let me just see. I'm looking for something casual. So I click on Casual and I come down here. I start saying all the shows they have under the casual subcategory, and in this instance, I could say, OK, you know what I like. The Bradley should, for example, and then on the Bradley, they have the size extra small, two extra extra large. This is another kind of option that you want to make easily accessible for your customers. You want them to be able to choose the size off the clothes that I want to buy, or in other instances, if you're selling our computers, for example, you would want to list out the departs off the computer Hamilton Ram. It has once they hard disk space, the process of speed and so on and so forth. You want to build to add the descriptions to your put it as well. So in this case, I'm gonna peaks small size because I am a small man. So Ah, big, small. And in this instance, it. Since this is jack threads, you have the option of trade off for free on other online stores. You would find a button that would say, add to caught most of the time so I could click Try it for free. And over here now you have the option of trusted into try out or on other omens. Does it to be the option to proceed to check out check out is often the stage where you want to pay for the product that you're looking for. But in this case right now, you want to be able to have your clients be able to take a look at their card where they currently have in the shopping cart, or to continue shopping so I could press the excellent and close this window and then continue shopping and keep on adding to my cart. Notice that over here to the white, where they have the cut button do it. There's already a figure number worn in it, indicating that I've already added an item to my shopping cart. So let's say I wanted to peek shoes. Now I could come down back to shoes. Let's go with boots and I'm looking for size of seven because I've got some more feet and I could just big the Charles cap toe. This is actually pretty nice looking the boot. I might actually buy this right after I finish recording this video anyway. Anyway, over here you have to put up details with material so material care origin you want to build to add as much description as possible to your products to further entice your clients into buying them. Clans typically want to know what customers typically want to know What, what it is that painful Exactly. So let's just say I'm impressed. I'm gonna click on trout for free. Please select size. In this case, I'm gonna go with a site seven and then, of course, quantity. Another very important. The aspect of shopping you want to make it easy for your customers built to choose the R Mont that they're looking to buy so I could click trout for free. And then, of course, my shopping cart has now been operated with two items. So in this instance, I could quick on push it to try out. Now over here, this is a very important stage, and this is where the business, hopefully your store has the option of being able to capture the email address off your clients. Now there isn't why this is highly recommended, even though it's not compulsory. It's hell ever committed because you want to be able Teoh, communicate with your past customers in the future. I am no marketing expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I have read and countless articles and have walked with market as in the past. And they always say that Ah, returning customers are often It's easy to sell new products to your past customers, then new the new customers. So you want to be able to be in a position where you capture your customers email address, and then the next time you have produced a new product that sort of matches or you feel your past customer will be interested in You can easily send them an email saying, Hey, ah, we know that you bought this shirt a while ago from our stop. Well, check out this new shadow we've now gotten. We feel that you might like the show. You want to be able to communicate with your past customers, and it is highly recommended that you are able to capture the email addresses. So in this case right now, since I am not a new customer table gonna click on returning customer and let me just sign and quickly with my Gmail address and put in my password. Okay. All right. So in this case, since a closing stole ships out sales physical products, you want to be able to also ship out the products and you want them to be able to select the canned off shipping options that you've got you have friendship in. You would also have an upgraded from of shipping would be more expensive, but then they put it, Will the life faster. So you want to be able to offer these kind of options to your clients as well you also want them to be able to add their shipping address and off course they're billing information. As you can see, this is my critical information that's been stored in the database and this process. Right now, you also want to be able to secure the credit card or debit card information off your clients. And, of course, if you look up here, this is https, which means that this particular page is secure. This is exactly what you want to be able to do for your clients you want to be able to protect. They're critical information and prevented information from getting into the hands off hackers. End would be cybercriminals. This typically would be the very last stage I don't want to click submit to try out, so I'm going to do that. But typically, another own started to be something like check out or pay now and so on and so forth. So you click that button and then are. What happens is your payment processor, which you're going to have to get the world process. The credit card, adept of the delicate details off your client, and then once they have approved the payment, you can then send an email or a we seat to your clients saying, Hey, you know, we've gotten your payment. Ah, we're gonna be shooting your production soon as possible and so on and so forth. And that's pretty much the that the process off, basically, having a customer corn teal stole and then selecting new product and then pain for that product. If it's a physical product, you will typically want to be able to offer our money back guarantees. Ah, an instance where your clients can ship back the products of a Baltin exchange for something else just flat out for a refund. So you would also want to be in a position where you can track all the products that have shipped the current status and so on and so forth. So these are the things that were going to treat in this course. We're going to build an online store, and we're gonna have all these options from the shipping options to the size to the color and so on and so forth. We're going to do all these stuff and hopefully by the end of this particular section you would have the tools and skills necessary to build out your online store. So that's our economists.

Calmus tab right over here will come out So we'll talk about these settings in the next video. Thanks for watching. I will see you then. 7. WooCommerce Overview: now that we've installed will come us. It's time to take a closer look at what we can do with this awesome plug in down here in the back and you will find the will come a stab and I knew hover over that. You will see all these additional sub tabs opening up are the very 1st 1 is orders, and if I click on that, this is basically where you can view all the orders that have been made on your store. We have coupons, and this is what you can add coupons so that your potential clients or customers can use them. Ah, when you click on, add a new coupon, you'll find this page, or you can add the code. Add a description for the coupon. You can offer a discount type, so you either have a car to discount or a product discount. So as an example, you could offer discounts full. Let's say shirts, whatever. Should they you by or you can offer a discount on the entire on the entire court that the customer is trying to by saying 20% off everything that you want a poor chase on your shopping cart and so on and so forth. You could offer different kinds off our discounts. You have to keep in amounts you can allow for shipping. You have to keep on experiment day to you have you stayed restriction usage limits as well , and so on and so forth. We will be building and creating coupons later on in the course, so we will visit this page again. Are you have reports where you can keep track of how much you've made, How much, if sold, your course sales, your net sales or this place that we funded orders? How much of chance for shipping how much has been spent with coupons? You can do that by a specific time period with the last seven days that small last month. By a year you have sales by product, sales by category, coupons by date, and you can export all this information as well to your excel. If you wanted to. You have your customers as well. They can keep track of new centers that you've made off a period of time. We have customer sales. We have guests, seals as well, at the difference here being customers, customer sales would be those who have already provided and a count who have an account with you guessed sales will be customers who prefer not to sign up by providing email address so that will be on the guest sales. We have stalkers. Well, they can keep track off your products that are low in stock, those that are out of stock of those that are most stocked. So reports is probably one of the more important taps, which you're gonna be walking with throughout the division off your online store. Now we do have settings, and we are gonna talk about all these tabs in the next few videos because there's extremely important. So I will skip sentence for now on the system status. The information you would typically find under your system status would be very useful in terms off troubleshooting, because this bit provides you information about your your Web server, your website and about the Paktika work, almost plugging that you're using. Azan Example. We have the what preservation here, which is 4.6 point one What president will admit 716 megabytes. We have the server environment for a reason and Apache server. We have the pitch version My school version. Basically, if you're having issues with with commerce and you wanted to contact their support them of their technical team, they may ask you for setting cans of information. And this is typically where you would find that sort of information. We also have the databases well, and down here, you might find this error message that says Max mind GeoEye p database does not exist. Basically, the G oh, I P database is basically used to Julich eight customers. So you can finally, where customers are making the orders from, we will take a look at how we can solve this particular issue in a much later class because we don't need this for now. So just just ignore that. And down here, of course, you set ins. Ah, taxonomy is theme. And some other information down here on the extensions is where has it told you earlier? You can install adults too. You're welcome. Us plugged in to make it even more powerful. Animal functionality. And we have the featured are plug ins over here for subscriptions for bookends, memberships and so on and so forth. If you come all the way down here to free. This is where we can install additional add ons that a free from strive to Amazon payments to pay, pal and so on and so forth. So we will be installing a few of these Adams as we progress in the course. So that's it for the general overview. Off the welcome us, Blufgan. Thank you for watching. I'll see you in the next class. 8. WooCommerce General Settings: All right, So the people's video we talked about the orders, coupons, reports, System Staters, extensions. Now we're going to jump into the Wu comma sentence prop are so clicking on this tabloid, have been close to the general options. Well, we can set our base location. We can change it from Alabama to Gundha. You know, wherever your story is based, are selling locations. We can indicate where their waste into all countries or itself the specific countries. Same goes with shipping as well. You can choose to ship to seven countries or just shipped all countries. The before customer location of Buchman's by default would use Jill locate. Or you can simply disable that are simply used the shop based address if you want to use that, instead enabling taxes. If I clicked on a noble Texas and text calculations and I click save changes over here, we have the tax stab all created for so little. Talk about this later on. Let's just jump back to General Tab now. Over here for the storm it is. You can choose to enable a site wide stone noticed checked. So in an instance, where you are offering, let's say, 20% on all products on your store. You can enable this and then simply send out a message saying Hey, you know, But offering this this discount uses Cuban to get this discount and the gallus of the page where your customer is, he or she would see it. That's what the are still noticed. Doors. However, keep in mind that there are other plug ins that can dupe a slightly better job. Then what will commence provides? We will get into that later on. Down here we have the currency options. You can choose your currency and trust me. Welcome. This has everything every possible currency can think off. They've got Turkish leva. Ah, salt women Principe Deborah £7 I mean, it's ridiculous. Swedish krona Ah, Qatari riyal! And and so on and so forth. He can pretty much find any currency looking for over here. And then, of course, you can customize how your courses displayed, whether it's displayed on the left, off the numbers or to the right, and then you can choose theseventies total number of decimals and so on and so forth limits click on save changes. Now I am going to skip products tax, ship it and check out because these are for major options on their own. So we will talk about these as we progress. So from general, I'm just gonna jump down to accounts. So let's take a little we have on accounts and the my account page. Remember that when we installed will commas and we set it up. Welcome are automatically created this page for so we don't have to change it. My account should be the my account page. Enable registration. Remember that. I said, whenever your first time customers are checking out, you want to look for a way how you can get their email addresses, so you certainly can keep in touch with them. This is where this comes into play. You want to enable registration on the check out page and then down here for the log in, you can display a returning custom elaborate mind. I want to check out Page. Let me show you what I'm talking about over here on the jack threads clips that I have our pretended to be a first time customer. I haven't signed in science like of the issue it. And now I'm gonna click on procedure. Tryout. Now down here, Jack. Threats A Zeya, your new Cosmo. Please provide you email address. This is where they're gonna capture my email address since I'm a first timer. However, because I am not the first time I can click on returning customer. And then over here I can provide my email address and password and log in. That is exactly what we asked is not over here. Now, for the account creation you can allow, walk almost automatically generate a user name from the email address that your costume provides you. And then you can also have woo commas automatically generate a cost. A password as well. Slumbers do that. Set up both down here. My account in points. You don't need to mess with these. These are simply appended to the U. R l off each page. You don't need to make any changes here. These are all set up correctly nicely. Someone's gonna click on save changes. Let's jump down to e mails. Now, over here, you can customize the kind of emails that are sent to your customers when they make orders or they cancel orders and you can even customize the kind of image that will be sent to you . You the proprietor of your store by commas. When something happens on your store as an example in new order, let's say a customer has made in new order on your website. If you want to customize how this is sent, you can click on the gear button over here to configure. And now over here, you can either choose to enable this notification or not, but I am pretty sure you would want to enable this live. This enabled because you want to be notified when someone has made an order on your store. This would be the email address where the notification will be sent to. And of course, the subject will be your site title. New customer order. Well, im just on do that. All right, Side tassel, New custom order order number And we also have the order date. I believe we have the order. Date as well at Gmail headed will be new customer order. You can change the email type from HTML to plain text. And of course, if you are into what press, customization and development and you are PHP savvy, you can actually choose to over hide how these template actually works. You can simply click on a few template down here. And this is the code that controls how this particularly Melis sent. And of course, you can customize all the court they have over here to suit your specific needs. We will go into this much let end of the course. But of course, the very first time in tow. What press or you know, tech savvy. Please, Please, no. Make any changes to this template. Just leave them as they are. Save changes. Let's go back. Let's take a look at one off. The emails will be sent you our customers over here, we have completed order. So let me click on the gear. But this would be the email that will be sent to a customer when he or she has completed in order. And of course, this will be the subject. Your site title order from all the date is complete. Are your order is complete? Now, over here we have subject email heading, but then we also have subject email head in and in the because we have downloadable. The difference between these two piers is with Wu Cuomo's. You can either sell physical products like clothes Julie computers, you know. Or you can sell virtual products like audiophiles, videophiles, pdf's and books. You know, things like that. The latter kind of products, which would be the virtual products, are downloadable. So an instance where you're selling such products, you would want to include your subject and your email. Aidan over here, not the first pair retreat for the physical products. However, if you hover over the question mark, it say's it defaults to your site. It'll order from ordered it is complete. Download your file so this basically would be the subject that would be in your in the email sent to your customers when they've made an order on your website. There isn't really any need to change any of this unless, of course, there is something very specific that you like to indicate in your subject or in your email heading as well. And, of course, the email tap. You can change that from your plain text to HTML and so on and so forth. It's safe. That and let's jump back down to the email. Step again. Now, down here we have the emails and the options you can change the from Limoges changes were now to the cool, not cool star Cool online store. The email address is fine. Now. Over here, you can customize the emails sent to your customers where if you click here to be your email template, this is how it's going to look like so we can customize this. We can change the E call off the text. The base called the Burger and Cola. Let me just change it for the text as well, too. Cooling stole. Just paste it over here. Save changes. Ah, little preview that but so cool online store part but will comment. That's fine. So you can customize the emails sent to your clients over here by again changing the text or changing the color and so on and so forth. Last magnolias we have Mr A. P I. And we are not going to take a look at this because what this covers basically is the extension. If your transfer extend the capabilities and the functionalities of Fukuyama's, this is where you're going to jump into end. This is way, way beyond the scope of this course, so and is going to quietly exit from this tab and jump back to general. So that's been it for the general accounts. Emails, tabs, adjournment in the next class, where we will start talking about the products tab. Thank you, Fortune. I will see you then. 9. Product Settings: All right, So let's take a look at the Products tab, which is one of the major tabs that we have under the general settings in Will Commas. Now, over here, the general settings on the product stop. But we have measurements so you can choose the weight unit from pounds two kilograms, two grams. We have the dimensions unit from inches to centimeters millimeters inches yards. What have you now on the reviews by default Anibal Retton's? When reviews have been ticked, Britons are required to leave a review and then, of course, show very fight on the label for customer reviews. These three have been ticked by default and the pretty self explanatory you can enable ratings on reviews ratings that that weightings are quite delivery of you. Basically, what this means is that you're not going to allow people just to leave a waiting. Let's, let's say, for example, four stars out of 55 stars. Out of five, they would have to write a review that goes along with their waiting. Explain why they actually shows the waiting that they chose show verified on a label for customer reviews. This really should go hand in hand with aligned on Ley reviews film very fight owners and verified owners simply means that before someone can leave a review, they actually I need to have bought the product. And what happens here is the client, or the customer would have signed in hold quitting account by the product, and then he or she can leave the review for the product. And I think Amazon does that something very similar like this. So I'm just click save changes. Let's go down to display Now the shop page by default has been said to shop. And of course, you can change this or you would have to do is to create a new page and thence like that page over here in the drop down the shop page displayed on What exactly do you want to show on your shop page on a show? The products, Or do you wanna show the categories or doing a short categories and products? Also here for the default category display? What do you would you like to? What would you like your customers to see when they click on a category politics page? Do you want to see the product so you want to say the sub categories. Orders up categories and products. Let me bring over here my favorite site. Once again, Jack threads, and over here you can see they don't actually even have a shop page. They do have major categories, like clothing, shoes and then, of course, accessories. And then under these major categories, they have sub categories, like underclothing. We have outerwear, shirts, tees, pants so you can click on shirts as an example and then on the shirts. We now have the shows that the assailant, so we could do something very similar like this. So rather than having a shop page, a singular shop picture shows all your products. You can have your major categories of products, have their own menu items and then create the sub categories for each major category off a shopping item. And that's what we're going to do for our online store. Let me move that. Let's calm down here to the default put sorting. How would you like to sort out your products? Do you want to do that by custom ordering or by the popularity in sales, the average rating and so on and so forth odd to cut ah, behavior. Now the very first option here gives you the option of redirect into the carpet after a successful addition. So what happens here is if you chose this option. What happens is as soon as a customer or client has chosen a pull to add to the court, they will be redirected to that page automatically. And I don't think you want that. You want your clients, your customers to shop for as many products as they can before they themselves choose to go to the R card picks themselves. So I am going to uncheck this Enable Ajax add to cut buttons on archives? Well, this is basically means that you can allow users or clients to add products as they wells through your website product images. Over here we have the defaults for the catalogue images, which is 300 pixels by 300 pixels. It's been said to a hard crop. That's something for the single put image. And put a Tom Nel's Now. If you want to change the dimensions, say, for example, from 300 to 300 100 by 300 to, let's say, 200 by 200 what would happen here is this. Once you change the dimensions and click save changes if you off already, if you've already uploaded those images to your media library, you would need to do something called regenerating thumbnails regional. Every generating a thumbnail simply means that you're telling the world press to recreate eight new sizes off. All the images that you have in your media library and such a new size would be the new dimension that you've added over here, the new dimension that you've changed so you can check the very next class. I will add a very short video explaining to you how to generate thumbnails and also the difference between a heart crop and a soft crop. You can check out the very next video for more explanation about that Over here for the Public Image Gallery, you can enable lightbox for product images that are when you when a client clicks on a product, it will pop out in from of the late books. I think that's pretty cool. So I'm going to leave that as it is. Let's jump down to the in Venturi. What do we have yet? Would you like to manage stock? Absolutely. So I'm going to live this box ticked. Now hold stock. Hear what the supplements is that if a customer decides to add a portal to the ah caught, they would have a set number of minutes. In this case, 60 minutes wonderful are to pay for that product before it's taken off the court. So you can change the value over here. Or you can simply disabled by just making this particular box blank. Now, notifications would elect me notified when you have low stock away out of stock. Absolutely. I don't see any reason why you would not want to be notified when you wouldn't low on your stock when you out of stock. And of course, this is the email address. That would be bad enough. Notifications will be sent to you now. Low stocked fresh Aled. What value would you like to add? L'd indicate when a particular product is running out of stock. The D 40 is too. But I think I'm gonna put that to five out of stock threshold. Naturally, he's been set to zero because that's literally what it means You out of stock when you put a number is zero. So you can. You can change this if you want it to you. But I'm just gonna leave this zero. I don't stuck visibility. Would you like to? You still show items to customers that actually out of stock. I think it's often a good idea. This way you can actually entice them to come back and check your site later, Just in case that product has been headed back. So I will take this box. And of course, finally we have the stock display format. How would you like to display your stock? Always showed a stock like, for example, too often stock. All you can say, Well, we only have two left in stock, or you could just never decide to show the stock amount. So I'm just gonna choose this for now. Never show stock amount of this. My changes, your progress. Safe changes. Finally, over here we have done the downloadable products, but since we're not since we're selling physical products were not selling downloadable products. I'm not going to spend any time talking about this, but it's pretty self expenditure on its own, so I will just ignore the step for now. So that's it for the products tab. Join me in the next class where we will talk about the head cop and soft equipment off. Also, how you can regenerate our your thermals. Thank you, Fortune. I will see you then. 10. WordPress Cropping: all right, so let's very quickly talk about the difference between a hard cope and a soft crop by default over here on your product images, the Heart Corp has been set automatically, and the difference between a Hard Corp and a Soft Corp a sort cup, of course, would be a few on checked the box right here you are looking for a soft crop, so the difference between a hot cup and a soft Corp is basically I'm going to use this particular website right here to explain to you imagine, we had two images, the one over here with the yellow background and the one here with a blue background. Let's imagine that the yellow bag on had a size off. Let's say this is 400 pixels by 200 pixels and the image of the blue bag under the portrait style as a height of, let's say, 600 pixels and with off 200 pixels, if you set a heart cope and dimensions in dimensions to be ah, 100 pixels by 100 pixels, a hat crop would always, as you can see, will always cut off any part off the image that is too big for the new dimensions that you specified. It just gives right now what he did. The author of this blawg, what he did here was that he said, a new image size to be 200 pixels by 200 pixels. And, of course, the orginal sizes. Why a little bit bigger? So with a hardcore pay hot couple cut off any part of the image that's too big for the new dimensions and is against the right Now, part of the image has been caught off. We can no longer see the full, smaller circles in both images. This is what a hot club I would do for you. A hot couple always match the exact dimensions that you've specified with a soft up. On the other hand, a soft crop is different Over here. We have the images again. You can see them with a soft Corp. A soft crop will not caught off any part off the image at all. Rather, it will do its best to match the new dimensions that you specified without cutting off any part of the image. So let's say, for example, in the case of this particular image right now, that is, uh, 10 24 pixels wide and six pixels tall. If you set your new dimensions to be 800 pixels by 800 pixels, Obviously there is no way how want Chris can automatically crop these exact same image, right? A. To match your exact dimensions, which is 800 pixels by 800 pixels. Because the always know size is not that off a rectangle, the decides not equal. So with a soft Kobe software will do its best to match the new dimensions that you've said so rather than it bean exactly 800 pixels by 800 pixels. You could have something like, let's say, 940 pixels by 790 pixels or something like that. So they're soft carpets off couple not caught off any part off the image. Rather, it will produced the dimensions that closely the closest match the new dimensions that you specified without losing any part over the image. Now, the downside off a soft crop is that my new upload images off different sizes and you want those images to appear on. Your shopping page is an example. You're not gonna have images with the same sciences. So that's going to Kuwait. Some inconsistency in terms of the design off that particular shop page. And this is why, by default, what press has the heart club set this way, even though you might lose part of the image, at least all your images are gonna going to be off the same size, and you would have consistency and the design off your shopping page. And, of course, as a tip, it would make sense to try as much as possible to upload images that are fairly off the same dimensions this way to make it even easier for what press to properly crop your images . So that's the difference between a hardcore on A Soft Corp. I will attach the link to this particular page and resources links so you can check the check it out for more information. Thank you for watching German. Let's go. Israel will show you have to regenerate thumbnails 11. Regeneating Thumbnails: What exactly does it mean to regenerate thumbnails? Now, over here in your media settings on those settings, we have three sizes. We have a thumbnail size in medium size and a large size. Whenever you upload a new image to your media library, Ward Press would automatically create three separate sizes off that particular image. We would have the thumbnail size, the medium size and then the large size. So now you have four sizes off the very possibility of just of the very image whether that you've just uploaded to meet Jimmy Library. In addition to these three sizes, don't forget you're going to have the original size as well. Now a new install will commas and you activate woke Hamas. Welcome US also has its own separate set off sizes. The 600 by 600 the 1 80 by 1 83 103 100 We already have it in here by default for what press. So when you install will come out and you activate you now are going to end up have in our six sizes off every image that you upload your media library. Like I said again, in addition to the three says is you have here, you're going to have two more sizes, which would be the single public image 606 100. And, of course, the product thumbnail 1 80 by 1 80 So that's five. And, of course, the original size off the image. That's what happens whenever you upload images to your media library in this particular scenario. Now here's a thin dope If, after we've already uploaded images to Media Library End, I came down here and said, You know what? I want to change the single product image from 600 by 600 to, let's say for 50 by 4 50 when you save your changes and you now have a new dimension. That dimension is not going to take an effect on the images that is already in the past uploaded to your media library. So in order for those images to now have a size that matches the new dimension that you just created, you would have to do something called regenerating thumb Nils. And that's where this particular plugging comes into play. The plug in is by Alex Mills, and it is a very, very good plug in for which 100 terminals, as you can see, over a 1,000,000 plus active installs. So if in your one online store after you've already uploaded images and you wanted to change the dimensions, you can simply come down here, install this plug in, and then let's actually even go ahead and do that. I just install it so I can show you how to walk with it. All right, self install of activated. Now, what you do is you come to tools and then you'll see region thumbnails. You click over there. And now over here, all you'd have to do is to simply click on regenerate all thumbnails. And this plug in will create the new dimension sizes for your images by simply regenerating the thump meals. So that's basically thumbnails and regional it in thumbnails and not shell. If you have any questions, of course. Always feel free to ask me Thank you, fortune. And of course I will see you in the next class. Bye. 12. Tax Settings: all right, so let's talk about the text options that we have on the Who Comas. Over here. The very first option we have is to either enter prices for products inclusive off the tax or exclusive off the tax. So by default, the option No, I will enterprises exclusive of taxes chosen. You can change that. We also have calculate tax based on the customer's shipping. Address the customers billing address or simply use your own show based address for your tax purposes. And you can also attach a text class to your shipping. And there are three major classes here by default, which welcome us, provides us standard with just wait civil rate. All you can just cockle actual tax based on the items that you have. I think that makes the most sense. In my opinion, something's gonna lift. That, as it is, are rounding down tax that subtitle level. If you want to additional text classes, we'll talk about this in just a second. Over here we have the option off this plane. When this plane presence in the shop, we can exclude the tax or we can also include the tax and Simpson up appears here for the card and check out pages. We can either excluded tax cost or we can also include the tax costs if we wanted to. And of course, you have it. Price display suffix. If you have over the question mark, it say's the fine text to show after your product prices. So let's say, for example, you wanted to add your tax costs. Do the price of the product. You could add something like including tax so that the your customers would know that this price of this product includes that tax as well. So you can add the text over here. And, of course, you can display your tax turtles, either itemized or as a single total. Now, over here we have stunted waits, read used relates rate weights and zero weight. Leight's These are the three major tax classes, if you will, which will call. Most provides force automatically. You do have your standard weight, and when I click in there over here, you can now begin to add your taxes. We have some stuff of angelic country, cold state code away, tax name and so on and so forth. If I jump down here to Google and typing Ruka most tax documentation. You will find his linkage that say's setting up Texas and welcome us. This will take us to the complete documentation for setting up taxes in woo commas, and I would encourage you to spend some time looking at this page if you intend to tax you'll customers on your online store. There are lots of videos on lots of content, but we're looking for here. It sets no tax. Wait, So I'm gonna click on that. And now down here, they describe what all these attributes mean. Country code is the two digit Contra good for the rate we have to state code raid, percentage priority and so on and so forth, and they even have examples. So it says here is an example of a tax set up for a UK store. 20% for you Get UK customers on Lee. You click on the image. You have the lightbox for my and over here what you do is you add G B, which would be the country good contra code for Great Britain. And of course, you have the way. 20%. And that's how you would do that in this example. There's another example over here where we have a 6% tax rate for all U. S. States except California. Reach has a 7% tax rate and then a local tax rate off 2%. So if I click on this image right here, we have down here, we have us. And then we have hysterics. Hysterics simply means all. So the very first taxi do we have is for everyone living in the United States. It's a standard 6%. And now over here, we do have a special tax rate for people living in California, which is 7%. But guess what? There is an even more specific tax for people living in California, but then living in this zip code and their tax rate is 2% and noticed the priority Phase two and the very prosperity essays wants. A parity basically means taxes that can be layered on top of one another. So for everyone living in California, you will have a 7% tax rate. But and for people living in California with the zip code, Nana Tuna will have a father 2% tax rate applied to Thea products. So once again. I will encourage you to spend some time going over this documentation. It's very exhaustive. They have videos and some further examples down here below. You can spend some time reading up if you intend to add taxes to your products on your online storm. So let me just jump down here. So from here, we can now begin to inset rolls. Just click on and set. Go and then you can add your country code. For example, the nights this would be you as you can add your state code, your zip code, and so on and so forth. And then you can begin to Kuwait your tax rates, something to commend on four reduced Wait, wait's I also for zero wait waits and so on and so forth. And then how you will actually apply this weight is when you come down to products, click on add a product. When you're creating to public, you can come down here and simply attach the tax class will be specific to this particular product. So that's it for setting up Texas in woo commas. Thank you for watching. And, of course, as usual, I will see you in the next class 13. Shipping Settings: all rights. Now let's talk about a very, very important part off your online store, and that's going to be shipping. I'm over here on the ship in Zones Page, and if you're falling along with me, you might see a slightly different page. In fact, this is what you should actually see. If you see something that has all this tax and so on and so forth, there isn't why this is a bit different is because I already vista disputes before. And so I'm not. Don't saying exactly the same thing, but it's all good. Before we start creating ship in zones, I'm just gonna come down here to shipping classes. Gonna click on that Now, what exactly is a ship in class? Let's say, for example, and you're online store, you sold kitchen items, items fall bacon for cookin, for boiling and so on and so forth. Now you might have said in products made off glass you might have so made of plastic. Now, naturally, because glass is easily breakable. You might want to charge a bit more for selling product made off glass as opposed to put ups made off plastic so you could use a shipping class. For such products. You could create a shipping class called Glass. And then whenever you're quitting a new product, you can attach the shipping class off glass to that particular product. And, of course, the shipping cost for that predictable go up as a result. So that's one way how you could end up using shipping classes. So for the sake of this course, I am going to Kuwait to classes for my clothing online store. And the 1st 1 is going to be a class for suits. No need to create a slog. Welcome us will do that by default. Ah, description for reference. I'm just a shipping costs shipping cost for shipping. It suits. Oops. Shipping is two peas and not three peas, right? I'm just copy this, saving my shipping classes. Let's add one more that is going to be full shoes. I'm just paste my description over here and change suits to shoes. Shipping costs for shipping shoes save my shipping classes, so now we have to shipping classes for shoes and suits. Now, how you would actually apply the shipping classes is this. When you come down to products, click on add product down here on the shipping. This is where you would now choose the shipping Claris that you'd like to apply to that particular product. Of course, we'll talk about this later. Let's go back, Teoh Shipping. All right, so now let's talk about the shipping zones. This is very, very important. Woke Amar's allows us to Kuwait multiple shipping zones, depending on the location where our customers are. So, for example, you could create a ship in zone four. People live in outside the country you're based in which is actually by default. Really have the one called West off the world. You could create a ship insulin for people live in within your continents of your in Europe or Africa or Asia, you could create a special zone for people living inside of your continent. You could create one for people living inside of your country for who believe inside of your stage. Four people live inside of your city and so on and so forth. So due to the fact that my shipping base here is in Alabama, the United States, what I'm gonna do is I work who ate a new ship in zone and I'm going to name that local local. And this would be for people leave in in Alabama Sweet home Alabama. So Alabama gonna save my changes. And now I will create no shipping zone for people living inside off the good old USA. So you say. And the region here, of course, would be unite its pates states if changes. And if your shop is based in the United States, don't forget that. Ever sit in places like Hawaii and Alaska, which even though they technically in the United States, they actually are more expensive for you should put out stoops if they're using us Bs or your use in What is it now? Ups or the Fed ex whatever. They will charge you more for shipping to such places because they're so far away. So I will add another ship in zone, and I think it's called noncontiguous. I think that's how they're referred to. Certain places. Noncontiguous U. S. A Regency would be Hawaii. And of course, we have less Kerr. All right, let me save my changes. All right, We have basically full zones local USA, Noncontiguous USA and, of course, rest of the world. Now here's the thing. The position of your shipping zones is very, very important. And why? Well, this is our welcome US operates. Whenever a customer puts in their shipping address, walk on Mars will take a look at the shipping zones and then try to begin to match the address of your costume are to the ship insoles that you have. It will first of all, look for the very first Shippen's on attribute local it checks to see Okay, is this customer base in Alabama? It's gonna come down to the next ship in zone, which in this case is the U. S. A. And if the person lives in the USA, that's fine based shipping. They're not too much automatically gets matched with the customer. However, in this particular scenario, this arrangement is long because here's the thing. Okay, I want people live in in Alaska on a way to get charged more than people living in, say, California or Maryland or other states within the United States, even though Alaska and ah why are inside off the United States? I want them charged more again because of the distance. So this arrangement is wrong, because if someone who lives in Alaska or Hawaii comes to my store picture product puts in the shipping address. Welcome US checks to see Okay, Instant Alabama, is it in? United States, Alaska and Hawaii are in the United States. So this will be the actual shipping zone that welcome us with selective after they don't consider us USA. So I'm gonna click and then just drag this over here. So it's now local noncontiguous U S A. And, of course, the rest of the world. So this is exactly how I want my shipping zones to be positioned. And if you don't have any shipping zones by default, welcome us with always use rest off the world as the ship in zone. And that's why it's created automatically and you can't delete it either. So let me save my changes. So now we have our zone names and the region's Now I can begin to add shipping methods over here for local. I'm gonna click on the plus button over here, and we have three major shipping methods. We've got the flat wait first ship in and, of course, local pick up. I'll start with the local pickup. Let me add that now I can click on local, pick up flexible? No, because people are commenting to pick up the item so the cost will be zero. And that is, of course, no need to tax them. So let me say the changes there. I will also add a flat weight as well. I'll become now here, attend applause button flat, wait for people living in Alabama, but do not want to go and pick up the item. Quicken fucked. Wait. So this is just gonna be, let's say to 99 very cheap now over here because we already created to shipping classes called shoes and suits. This is where we can now add the cost there to take to ship products with setting classes associated with them. So in this case, because it's shoes, but because it's in Alabama, it's going to be expensive. So I just make this 3 99 for suits. Let's make that full 99. So in this case, if I'm selling a product with a shoes cost with the shoes class rather to people living in Alabama, it's gonna be 3 99 Now, down here, you have the calculation type. You can either calculate per class or part order. Now, this refers to products or items that have more than one class associated with them. So you can either choose to have the class have a charge stupid for each shipping class, individually in this case shoes and then suits separately. Or you can simply charge but for the most expensive shipping class, which in this case would be suits on its own, which is for 99. So then go with the part order, save my changes. And last but not least, I am going to offer a free shipping. Okay, it's at that now for first shipping over here, the titles for shipping our fish requires you can choose certain options. You can either go with a minimum or the amount and a coupon or a minimum order, amount or coupon. I'll just go with a minimum or the amount, and the minimum amount here should be five. So if you live in Alabama and you order five products, I am going to show them to you for free. So let's do that. Changes. Let's jump back. So now we've got three shipping methods for people living in Alabama. You could do the same for people living in noncontiguous. You say off course if you live in the United States, you could do that for people living in the U. S. C as well. Off course. I don't think you're gonna add local pickup for people living in noncontiguous USA for People live in outside off your local region. But then again, it depends on the contrary. In I live in the USA, you maybe entire land or burial, you know, wherever. So things might be a little bit different for you. But basically, that's how to add shipping regions and shipping classes and shipping methods to your products. Before I go, I'm gonna jump down here. Two shipping options. Let's not forget about this particular page over here. We've got calculations he could enable the shipping calculate toe on the court page. Or you could hide shipping costs until an address is anted. I prefer the second option. You could actually enable both options if you wanted to, but how does deserve all the shipping calculator and instead hide shipping costs down here shipping destination. You can default to the customer shipping address default to the customers billing address off course force shipping to the customers billing address. Now, in most cases, the customers blend address tends to match the shipping address. And that's why that is the chosen option over here by default. And I'm just gonna leave that as it is. So save my changes and that's that over here I do have a very, very good ah where Page That explains in more detail the ship in zones and shipping method and classes so you could spend maybe five minutes going off this particular page. It's favor useful, very interesting, that will attach the link in the resources link. So once again, thank you for watching the video. And, of course, as always, I will see you in the next class by 14. The Products Section: Oh, hello and welcome to a brand new section where everything we're gonna be talking about would be products related. So in this video, I'm going to give you a very quick preview of what to expect in this section when we installed welcome as we had the woke almost stab. But we also had the product stab created force automatically. I have a click on products down here you can see. Ideally, this is where we should be able to see all the products were selling. But since we don't have any to sell at the moment, we have this message saying, Create your first product so I can click on add. Put it down here, and this is typically where you would begin to create your products. You would add the product name at the price and the sale price, if any shipping. Eventually, the description on the tags, images and so on and so forth. This is basically where you will do everything out down here. Under the product data, we have different kinds of products, which will talk about in the very next video. Down here we have the categories. This is recon created the categories and this sub categories off your products. You can also add tags for each put it So, for example, if I will sell in a T shirt I could used could use tags like Long Sleeve or Short Sleeve, cooperate formal stuff like that and finally be af attributes. Attributes refer to data like your size call law, and so on and so forth. Visible, of course, would be a very, very important part off our clothing store. So that's it for this quick introduction to the Section German in the very next class, where we will begin to talk about the different kinds of products that you can sell using woo commas. I'll see you then, bye. 15. Product Types in WooCommerce: All right, let's take a look at the different kinds off products that we can sell using commas now down here, whenever you're creating a new product, this is where you can select the kind off product that you're selling. So let's jump down here to the documentation and look at the descriptions of the different cans off products. The very 1st 1 we have is a simple product, and this will come out the vast majority of products that you might sell on your own line. Stole a simple docked, is shipped and has no options. A very good example would be that off a book. A book is a book. Okay, Another example would be electron ICS. A TV is a TV. A DVD player is a DVD player. That's basically how it is that will be perfect that you call simple. We also have grouped products, which is a collection of related products that can be purchased individually and Onley. Onley consist of simple products. An example would be a set off six drinking glasses. Another example would be that off a PlayStation, the PlayStation 34 into video games. You have a position three. That's our 80 gig off off, off storage, we have one that's 100 gig of storage, one that's 120 gig of storage and so on and so forth. Those are basically collection off PS three related products. We also have virtual and then downloadable products that are very similar in nature. These are products that you don't ship. They are not physical in nature, Visual put. It will be a service. As an example, a done little product would be put us that you can download. An example would be a PDF magazine on e book, a video photograph, digital album and audio track, and so on and so forth. Those would be downloadable products. You also have the option off selling external or affiliate products on your website. And then, of course, finally, we have a variable product. If you're selling clothes, the very vast majority off your products will be variable because variable put us on like on. Like simple products actually have options. They have deviations as an example. Here they have the T shirt. You have a T shirt available in different polos. Different sizes be possibly even different kinds of material used to make the same kind of shirt and so on and so forth. Those will be variable products. Now. You can also sell additional kinds of products, such as subscriptions. If you come down here to welcome us, let's go to extensions. Let's jump down here to products down here. We have Luke. Most memberships say, if you were selling memberships, you could do that using who? Comus You click over here, and this will take us to the site, and unfortunately, it's a little pricey down here for a single set. It's 100 and $49 so it is a bit crazy. But of course, if you or charging your members some decent amount of money to be a member on your side and potential, this would be affordable for you. So those are the different kinds of products that you can sell using. Welcome us. Think of watching, and as usual, I will see you in the next class 16. Creating a Simple Product : All right. So it's time to create a simple product. And before I do that, I just wanted to let you know that I do have to images of heredity shit that I've already uploaded to my media library. You can find this images in the resources link. You will find them in a zip folder so you can unzip the folder and upload the images to a library. And I'm also gonna be using the site called Low M Epsom per bank decay. Basically, just grab some dummy text, which we're gonna be using for our product description. So let me jump down here to products add product, and it put up. Name is going to be read T shirt. Let me have a dash between. All right. So for the description, I'm just gonna grab everything over here. This would be the full description off the product. Let me just paste other for here. All right, So don't. Here we have the product data, and this is a simple product, so I'm gonna live that as it is. But what What happens if I clicked on virtual notice that some of the options here disappear like shipping for example, has disappeared because you can ship a virtual product. And if I take downloadable, notice that we now have options over here to add the downloadable file of the limit X, Perry, and so on and so forth. So the options you will have below here really depend on what boxes you tick or don't take . But this is a simple product. It's a T shirt. They're going to ship in. So I'll uncheck the boxes over here, So regular price for this is going to be 12 99. Let me just say that there is a still price and so price is 9 39 Now, over here for the link shuttle. I can add for how long the sale is going to last, but this city is going to last forever. So I'm gonna add any initiative for that. All right, it is taxable. And in the text class. Of course, you can choose either one of these three options. I'm just gonna leave that are standard. Let's come down here to inventory now for the sq that the stock keeping unit. And if you hover over the question, make it say's Ske refers to a stock keeping unit unit a unique identifier for each distinct product and service that can be purchased. So let me just add an s Q U here off t s are won t s would be too Should I will be red and one will be the 1st 1 basically himself. Tears are one mullet stock. Yes, I would like to manage the stock, so I'm gonna take that. So let's imagine we have 10 off this in stalk. Allow back orders. Now, if you're over the question, make it say's these controls with a note back orders aloud backward as generally, of course, mean if your customer can make an order for the product, even even though it no longer exists. Even though you've learnt it off event tree, they can still make an order for it so that basically what it means when you are allowing back orders. In my case, I did not want to allow back out as if your product has a lot of stock. The customer should not be able to make any order for it. So lived it as it is stock status. I do have it in stock, so I'm gonna live that as it is now, this is a very interesting option. Sold individually. Now, if you wanted to, you called disable your customers from ordering more than one single item off the same product. So this is an interesting way of preventing greedy customers from coming into your store. Imagine you had only 10 in store and one of her customers just came in and said, OK, give me all 10. You know, that would be let up. How frustrating. For although customers who wanted the same product So you could you could do this or not. I was going to live this as it is, I I like, greeted customers. I mean, they're paying me money, So who cares where the money comes from? All rights. Over here we have the product shot description. Let me just grab just a shot text of a Highlanders. Copy this and that. I'm just paste this over here for the short description. All right, Fromem. Andrea. Let's jump down to shipping all rights over here. I can add the weight in pounds and it's £2 dimensions in length. Let's say 12 by 12 by 14. I actually have no idea what I just did. But who? Whatever. 12 to 14. It's fine now. Shipping class. Remember we created to shipping classes for suits and shoes, But this isn't this suit. It's not a shoe. Something's gonna live it on. No shipping class now linked products. This would make more sense when we begin to have more products on our store. But basically, over here you have two options. You have up cells across cells. If you hover over the question, Max over here again, Op sells their products, which are were commended instead of the currently viewed product. So this would usually be productive out better in quality and, as a result, may be more expensive. You could add such products over here. Now cross sales are put us in a very similar to the one that the customer is currently taking a look at, and typically you would find the officers and cross cross cells below. They put out that they're looking at. That's basically how it works well off first, Look at this in more detail a little bit later on now grouping. Of course, if we were selling a group product, this is where this would make more sense So we'll just leave this for now. We'll talk more about this when we create Begin creating group products attributes. Let's create an attribute. Gonna click add So the adieu But I'm gonna create here would be size Let's add a very first regiment off size. Now, over here I can add the values So I'm gonna go with s for small And then we have to use the symbol to separate options. So we have small We have medium and we have large So these are the three sizes I have Something's going to click on safe attributes And finally we have advanced. Just click on that. Now, over here you can add a purchase note for anyone who biases particle up red T shirt. I'm just write something like I know you love Red Sang. Oops. Thank you for buying this shit. So for the many order, you can also control the order off the product in the menu. And if I you can either choose to enable all disable leave use, I'm gonna leave these essays because I like views. All right, so over hits you the light. Let's add a product category which is going to be shirts. Okay, so we add in the very first, put a category right now. Shirts. Let's at that. This is gonna fall on the shirts and ever put for the tags. I can add shirt read. Let's go with cars. Will. Casual, right? I mean, actually, make this small. So you've got shirt ready. Good casual image. I'm going to choose from a media library. This one over here. Woo, let me add that. And now don't heal. I can add all the images as well. I'm just add both of them to the gallery. All right, so let's see. That's pretty much everything that we needed to do for these shirt. Let's go back. Let's see, General, eventually ship in. Everything seems to be in place. So I am going to click on Publish. And now let's see what we have over here. I'm going to click on the view product. Let's do that. Okay. So what do you know? We have ah t shirt over here, and you can see because we created a cell price. We have the symbol here saying sale and you can see the original plies. And now the supplies, in effect we have the shot description over here we have the full description. Over here all we have the SK you we have the tags. That category. We have the images when you click on the images because we enabled lightbox you have the images popping up over here. I actually made a mistake for the gallery. Once you've said your featured image, you don't have to add the same image to your gallery. So there was a mistake on my part. But it's all good. Over half a klick own additional information. Here we have the way to the dimensions the size that we set up. And, of course, if anyone adds reviews, this is we will find the reviews for the product. So that's how to add a simple product. Join me in the next class where we will now begin Adan Grouped Products. Thank you for watching 17. Creating a Grouped Product: All right. So now I am gonna show you how to create a group product I have already added for additional images. And again, you can find them in the resources link you'll build to download them individually. So I do have four images, basically two images off one product. We have the gray hoodie, the phones and back designs. And then, of course, we have the great tissues as well the front and the back designs. So what I'm gonna do is to come down to products. I'm going to click on add product. And this time I'm going to say the product name here would be the I'll just say the great look and the great look. Let me come down here. Copy. Let him keep some text. Peace that over here. Onley. Grab this. Come down here for the short description paste that. All right, so over here, in product data, I'm gonna change this from simple product to grouped product. And you really don't have to do more chair except maybe add and sk you. Which would be It's a GP one that's for group product. I don't have to do anything with attributes or advanced or anything of the sort. I'm just gonna come down here. I'm going to add a new product category, which would be looks, looks and I'm just do that and for the tags, I'm just going to say gray all in small it as grey grouped, I would say hoodie and T shirt Oh, for the product image. Just come down here and l grab the hoodie. Let me sit, is the image and I am going to click publish? Oh, it's a night of a click view product Down here, you can see we have the product. We have the title, the description, the tags and older. But we don't have any place very can actually odd or even check the price off this product . And that's because this is a group product, and a group put it consists off simple products only to create civil products and add them to this group or at existence, civil products to this group. So what I'm gonna do is to jump back to the back end. Let's go ahead now and create too simple products for this good productivity gray hoodie and the great T shirts. So let me just start with gray hoodie. Let's odd. Ah, text again. Couple that shot one over here. Copy that. Let's come down, Paste that. All right. I'm gonna live this as a simple put it because it is a simple product. I'm just at the place here for 1999. It's not on sale. Ah, Eventually and was going to ignore this for now. I'm gonna come down here toe linked products. And now down here. This is where I can now, Such for the group product. I quitted initially. So I'm gonna go with Gray and now, after happening Greek, and I'll see the name popping up. So this is the grouped product name gonna click that. And now I'm going to select my looks category and let me just click publish. Actually, I forgot to add to protect the image them Just do that. Let me add that for the back. Let me sit fat. And we also have the gallery limits. Add the phone images Well, for that one. All right, so let me just click update. And now I'm gonna add one more, which would be for the gray T shirt. Gray T shirt. Just paced my text is my text down here? Price here would be full 99. And on the link products, of course, I'm going to do the same thing again. I'm going to type in gray gray, look like this on the shirts said the put image to be the front, add one more image, which would be the back for the gallery and let me publish this. All right, So I'm gonna do is to come back to my products. And over here right now, you can see all the products. With added, we have our gray look, which is the group product. We have the individual products that make up off the make up. This put this group product. We have the gray hoodie, great T shirt and you can see the Advil pointing towards the product. The good put a name. Great look. So let's go ahead now and view our group product. And now you can see we have the prices, the price for the shirt and in the place for the hoodie. And now down here, you can see we now have the ability to add as many off each individual product as we want. I can do all of that. And now we can add to our caught. So this is how you can create grouped products in Kamas? Don't forget that with group products, they are compressed off simple products. Okay, not affiliate products, not variable puts puts, but simple products. So that's it for now. Thank you for watching. And as usual, I will see you in the next class. 18. Creating Affiliate Products: all right. So far, we've ated simple products. We have create head group products as well. And now it is time for me to show you how to create and a feel it product on your online store. And as an example, I am going to use Amazon, and I am going to try and sell this really good looking sweater on the online store. And it's a Williams Kashmir men's 100% long sleeve crew neck sweater. That's a mouthful. So just copy this. Come down to you. My back and click added products I am going to paste is the name. And of course, this is just an example a sample. So I'm just gonna copy some sample text. I am not gonna copy the real actual text on the site. Just paste that over here and let's see what we have. Okay, so over here, product data, I'm gonna change this from simple products, you external affiliate product. And now, once that selected over, he consume being now have options to add the particular l the booking text and some more information. So I'm going to do is I can copy this entire u R L But this is actually a very long, ugly looking You are l So there is a way how you can shorten You are else from Amazon. He can simply remove all the text just before the DP. You'll have DP force less and you will have a set of numbers. And then after the fourth slash, you can remove all that content. So this is basically although we need so I'm just copy that. Jump back to my your l Let me piss it over here. And now for the button text Aiken, say bye from Amazon. Buy from Amazon Regla Prize. Let's see, it's about $103. I didn't even see that. It's pretty expensive, actually. Well, but it looks good. Anyway, just come back 103. There is no sale price. Eso inventory will. I'm just gonna add the sk you We can, of course, said in an inventor because this is an affiliate product, Okay? We're not the ones managing the stock for the product cell. I'm just gonna say a f p a flip product one So show description lived. Just copy some text here. Copy that. Let me pay. Sit over here. Ah, put a categories non put a tags. I'm just add sweater. Very mind again that this is just a sample. I'm still gonna delete this. So the public image them just add This is an example. I didn't want to grab any one of these images from the side because I honestly don't know if it's allowed for me to copy images from Amazon and pretty sure it's not so in order to avoid any trouble, I'm just going to use this same image over here, and it was going to publish it. It's now let's view the product. And now you can see we have this bottom that says Buy from Amazon. We have the title, the description, but he considered text is different. It says Buy from Amazon. And in fact, let's take a look at ah pages. I want you to see the shop page. Let's view the shop page for all our products, and now you can see the buttons tells you something we have are two cat. We have few products, and then we have buy from Amazon. These obviously means this isn't a Philip product art to cut. It means these are simple products and, of course, view products means that this is part off a group product. So that's how to create and sell a Philip Products. Own your online store. Join me the next class. But we will take a look at how to quit eight variable products. Thank you for watching else you then. 19. Creating a Variable Product: Now it's time to talk about variable products, and this is gonna be a lot of fun. So fasten your seat bills and let's get cracking. All right. So the very vast majority of products you find on online starts tend to be either simple products or variable products. We call that simple products have no attributes. The product is just the product, however, with variable products, you do have differences. You have attributes. You have the small signs, the large sized red color, the black hello and so on and so forth. So here's what we're gonna deal. I am going to create a product, and Lemon named this the Rawlings T shirt line. And as usual, I'm just copy some text down here, but it's that copy. This pays that for the short description, and what I'm gonna do is down here. I'm going to switch from simple to variable product Now, once I do that, notice that we now have a tab you called Variations. I am good to ignore inventory, shipping all that stuff phenomenal. To know this, I will jump straight down two attributes and because we don't have any costume, put it that you could see it. I am going to click on add And the very first attribute we're going to quit would be size. And now over here, I'm going to add my values small, medium and then large. Now, you might recall that we actually did something like this earlier for these wet T shirt product. We actually created an attribute and we added the sizes. There s M and L. However, this made absolutely no sense back then because this is a simple product. It makes no sense to create an attribute for s and put it only did that just for the sake of sure knew how to create attributes. So how this is not gonna make sense is we are going to click this button here that say is used for vacations. I'm gonna check that, and we don't need to show this animal on the product page because our customers can simply select the size they'll want. So I'm going to uncheck this and I am going to save the attributes. Now I am going to add one more attributes, which would be color. So let me come down here. That's good with color. And let's see What do we have? We have black. We have read and we have Guay. Safe attributes. All right, so now we have two attributes with three different fellows each. Now I am gonna come down to variations now, here in variations. This very can now create variations based on the attributes we have. Remember, we have two major attributes size and culo and each one of these attributes have three different values. So a variation would be something like small with a red color large with a black collar and so on and so forth. We could do that. Now, over here, there are two things we could do. We could either add a variation individually. All we can create divisions from all attributes. I am going to go with this second option right here to create fear. Recreation somewhat attributes. So like that. Click go. I know we have this message saying, Are you sure you wanna link off aviation's? This will create a new variation for each and every possible combination off division attributes. Let's guilt. Let's do it. Nine Vivi ations added. Okay, cool. Okay. And now here you can see all the possible variations. We have small and black, small and red Medium black latch Blackledge red, large gray and so on and so forth So these are the nine possible divisions that we have based on the attributes there we created. So from here right now I can calm down here to the right click on the drop down and now begin to add the sk you the regular prize to sell price and all that good stuff. So let's go with the very first S k u v a r er one. The price here is going to be 1999. And yes, we do have a sale price or 14 99 for the wait and all that stuff. I'm just going to ignore that. Lets Tuggle that up. Let's come down here to small and red situation. Price is going to be 15 99. No still price. Let me tuggle that up. Let's jump down to medium and gray. Biederman. Gray, Let me add eight price here, go over 2099 s k u. Off v a r 02 Okay, let me tuggle that up. Come down here to a large and growing actually large and gray. Let's go with a the, uh, three big lump eyes off 22 99. And so I'm just gonna save this for now. Let's just say the changes. So we have all this. I'm going to select my category of shirts. I'm going to publish the product and let's view the product and see how it looks like. So check this out. Oh, I'm sorry we don't add a product image, but never never mind. Over here, you can see we have the description, the title institution with a description. And now you can see the price range from 14. 99 to 22 99. The reason why we have this cancellation right here. This this dash is because remember that we created a sale price for the small and red version, which is the 49. And then that's where we have this show. An appeal as it is. So for me right now, we cannot slip out size. We can go with small and the color we can go with red. And now that's the prize. 15 99. Ah, let's go with the let's see, I can clay, everything. I can go with medium and I could go with black bought, since we didn't add any price for this. It's a so it is productive on available. Let's clear that I remember we lived with large and gray, and that's 22 99 now you people can begin to add the defend cans or physicians that they want. Awesome. So that's it for these particular product. Let's come back down here and add yet another product again. I am going to go with a the Excalibur Excalibur T shirt. I'm just coming up it all different kinds of names today. I'm just pays that peace that over here and product image only, just like one this time that just go with the black, he said. That put a gallery images lenders go with theirs with theirs. With this, I mean, that's a gallery. All right number switches from simple back to variable. Now, if I come down here to attributes, notice that the size and the color attribute that we created earlier is no longer there. That is because those two attributes was specific to our violence T shirt. So if you want institution where you have certain attributes that will be available for all your products. We have to Kuwait custom product attributes. And to do that, let me, first of all, just save this as a draft. I am gonna come down to my attributes over here and now here we can begin to create our custom attributes. So let's go with the very 1st 1 which is size. I don't want to enable any archives. Now, over here, you can either select or have it as a text text will be where you have to type in the attribute, or you can have a select option where you can simply choose from a set of options. So I'm gonna go with select I'm going to live this as it is, click. Add attributes. So now we have size. And now to the right, I'm gonna click on the gear button, and now here we can begin to add our sizes. Let's go with small. Let's add that. Let's go with medium. Let's add that as well. And let's just go with large. I don't forget that for your real actual store, you can add descriptions if you wanted to, so all right, so if I click back on attributes, notice that we now have the size as the attributes. We now have the terms large, medium and small. Let's one more attributes, which is going to be color again? It's gonna be select. Let's add the attributes. Let's click on the gear. And now let's begin to add Kalou's read Let's go with Let's go with Green I like Gwyn Green black And of course, let's go with gray. Everybody loves gray color. All right, so got we got gray, black, green and red. If I click on the attributes again, you can now see we now have the terms. So let's jump back down to our products. Over here. I have my Excalibur T shirt, so I'm gonna click on edit. How this jump down to attributes. And now over here we can now begin to add whatever adieu but we want so I can go with color . Let's save the attributes. Excuse me, I should have added at the edge of but not safe. So after adding it would down here, can now begin to select the colors that I have with this particular T shirts. I can go with black click on the button again. I can go with Gray. Let's switch this. Say that. Let's know. So let's size click, add. And now here we have the small and we have medium Sorry, tall people. Nothing for you. So limits safe that. All right, so now I'm gonna come down to variations. In the previous example, we created visions from all attributes. OK, but what if we wanted to create our very own specific attributes? Aiken, just click on goal, okay? And now from here, we cannot begin to manually create our variations so I can go with any color. I can go if let's say with black. And now that's what we have. Black and small. Let's go with that. Black and small. Let me click down the Arab looking over here and let me just say B s a one. This place here is 99 No still price. Let me save my changes. And I am going to add another variation because I can go. And now here I can again choose the color which is gonna be gray and medium Come down here . AWS full regular price is going to be 11 99 and click save changes and let's create one more variation. Let's go with Ah, what do we have? What we have? Let's go with black and medium click Don't here. And very version Product is going to be 15 99 and let's have it supplies off. 12 99 Okay, cool. Esco, you is gonna B B B s ah Bs a to I'm just coming up with different kinds off escaped use. I'm just save that. All right, so let me select shirts. Let's klieg publish. Awesome. So now let's view the product and see what we have. The X. Oh, my gosh, I do apologize. This isn't actually the spelling of Excalibur. Oh, my Lord. Excalibur is e x e a l i b you how? Whatever. Excalibur. Excalibur to share. That's my That's my ovulation. You hit this first. Okay, x Excalibur you to shit. Okay, fine. So we have the description. We have the range of prices. We have a color black with the option of medium that the prize. Ah, let's reset. Let's come back down to gray and medium. And we have 11 99 and so on and so forth. So that's typically how you can create variable products for your online stubble before I go. Let me just go to the shop page where we can see all the custom products that we have created and ups. Okay, just jump back to the back end. Let's go to pages. I thought Shop was going to take a straight to this page. Okay. All right. So now what? You can see the buttons that we have based on the kind of product that you're selling. As usual, a simple product will have add to cart while group Felix will have view products. If it's in the Philip product, you would have something like by foam. Is this one? So if it's a variable product, you will have the option, the text, other select options. So that's it for now. Thank you so much. We have created four different kinds of products on our online store. Thank you so much fortune. I will see you in the next class. 20. UpSells and CrossSells: now they have created some sample products on our store. I believe I can now show you the difference between up cells and cross cells and how you can use them. Let's take a look at the Excalibur you to shed. First of all, to begin with limit, click on view. All right, So what do we have? We have the description, the title, the images and now, down here, take a look at this. We already have a section called Related Products. We have the better shared great issued in violence to shit. These particular section comes from the work. Most plug in itself automatically the mucus plug gambled. Add these section to every product that you have on your online store. Now, you would notice that these products have something in common, which is the T shirt. If we go back Teoh products down here, you can city categories. We have four shirts for prints on that the shirts category. So when they can look at the x scalability shit the related products section simple looks at all the products on the the shirts section and in this place, those products under the main correct that the customers could live viewing. So let's do this. I'm going to click on Edit now down here, where we have linked products, I'm going to click on that. And now for the up cells I am going to type in. Let's go with the gray look. Remember that your up cells tend to be products that are more expensive and are generally off better quality than the product the customer's currently looking at. So let's go with the great look and let's also go with the gray who d just as an example. So we have to up cells. Now let's update this. And now let's see how this page is gonna look like. So down here you we now have the section that says you may also like and take a look at that we have is the two up cells. So when a customer licks at the two shootings like, wow, this looks good. Okay, Limits uses color limits, use the size, add to cart and then he comes on and it takes a look at this. It says, Wow, I might also like this. That sound. This looks cool. You know, he didn't goes on to click the image and then hopefully adds to put it to he Zohar caught. So that's it for the up cells. Let's go back. And now let's take a look at the cross cells. Cross cells tend to be products that are very similar to the one currently being viewed by the customer, and you typically would find the cross cells in the caught page in the check out page does typically where you will find sort products. So let's do this. Let's see, what can I add? I'm going to add the Williams the Williams Kashmir remains Long sleeve sweater. Let me add that. And ah, let me also go with the gray T shirt as well. So I now have to cross cells. That's update this. Let's go back. Let's fear product. So we still have the up cells. We have devoted products. So what I'm gonna do right now is I'm going to choose a color of black small size and now I'm gonna click on add to cart. Okay, so that's been added. And now I'm gonna click on view caught. And now in here, take a look at this Down here, we now have the cross cells saying, Hey, you may be interested in the Williams cashmere sweater and the Great Citian, so this is where you would find the cross cells in local news is typically where they will be advertised, basically. So that's the difference between the op cells and the cross cells in common, so be sure to use them very wisely. If you do use the upstairs and across sells very well, you could actually make more money because your clan's your customers. We've introduced two similar products, better products, and they generally will be more interested in adding them to their carts up. That's it for the op cells and cross cells. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 21. Populating our Store with WooCommerce Sample Data: all right. So far, so good. We have seen how to create the different kinds of products we have seen, how to create attributes and how to manage the inventory of products. We've seen up cells and cross cells and so on and so forth. Now, what I want to do is to import the sample Beta that welcome us, actually has. And I would like to do this because in the very next section, we're going to begin to design our actual store, and it will be nice if we had more sample data. So what I'm going to do is I am going to clear out all these data, all the sample products, that we've quit it so far. So let me just click on the checkbooks over here. Come down here. Click move to trash. I'm gonna click on apply. So all that goes away. I am going to come down to the categories as well. That's to the same team. Delete, apply. Let's come down, Teoh tags to the same thing. Delete. Apply Well, basically flushing out everything over here. Let me just come down here, and what I'm gonna do is I'm going to. It's the same thing. Delete, apply. Okay, so let's click. Unnatural. It's again. Click on the lead over here. Actually, I could just click delete over here as well, So Okay, cool that Claire's on everything. So we have cleared out the attributes, detox, two categories. Let's come down to the media. Click on the button over here. Let's click everything. Delete permanently apply. And okay, let's do the next batch. The lip imminently apply. Okay, so with completely gotten rid off all products and images on our site. So now what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna come down to this page. And, of course, you will find the link in the resources links. So this is the group Hamas dummy data. And I'm going to right click on from here and would click on save Link Ass, and it should be an XML document. Some going to save that to my dick. Stop. Cool. All right, I'm gonna jump back down here. Come down to tools, click own imports. I'm going to come down here and click Install now, under what press? This is the plug in which we're going to use to import XML data into our site. I'm gonna click on Install now and then I'm going to click on Importer. All right, so it's a Z. Let's upload the file that we want to import. I'm gonna click on Choose File and now over him going to click on the dummy data Click Open and I'm gonna click on upload file and imports. All right, I'm just going to select my user name as the author. I will check the box that says Download and import file attachments. Click, Submit and and it is done all done. Have fun. So let's now come back to the products. Let's get click on folks and now you can see we have all these products over here with all their images, the prices and stuff for that, let's go to pages. Let's click on Shop. That's view the page and look at that. We now have actual dummy content dumping products on our side. Let's click on number two. We have all this could cool stuff. Three. Cool. All right, so we've got images, end products and titles and prices and stuff like that. Cool. Let's go back two products. All right, now over here. Take a look at this over here. To the right. You can see we have some icons representing the kind off product that we are viewing the box over here. Say simple. But now take a look at this. We have products that are downloadable. Okay, so I would like to get weed off the productive downloadable because we are selling Onley physical products on our sites. What I'm gonna do is I am going to come down to show all prototypes, and here I'm going to click on downloadable. I'm gonna click on Filter. So we have five products that are considered to be downloadable, and I don't like that. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to click on edit. We're going to remove the downloadable here, going to add the update whether I'm going to update that. Let's go back. All right. So let's to the symptom for number one as well on check the check books for the eligible. Let's click on the dates. Okay, lets go back. And then I was going to do that for one more. Let's edit. Well, Album number three who moved the check box again? Click Hope dates and all right, so let's go back once again. Let's see. All right. So for the remaining three, all I'm gonna do is I'm just going to delete them. Somebody come down here or actually before delivering them on it to show you how you can bulk at it. Your so imagine, for example, you wanted to change the price off all your downloadable all your civil products from $9 to , let's say, $10. How you do that is when you check the books over here that highlights every single product , you can come down here and then click, edit, then click apply. And now over here, you have the option of changing any kind of public data that you want you. So from here for the price we can change this to Let's go with $12 instead and out down here I can click on updates and I'll take a look at this our products and now $12 no longer $9 Which was the initial our price. So that's typically how you would bulk edit products and your welcome a store again. Check the books Over here. Come down here. Click on edit, Click apply. And now here you can change with its featured rates and stock or not stuffing it again. Bulk added all products on the A particular category, making it very, very easy for you to edit your products. So I got up late once again and love, just delete this last you off the trash apply O. K. So we no longer have any downloadable or visual products on our site. All we have are simple grouped and variable products. We might even have some of flip product somewhere in there. But that's it for now. Are pull ups off being populated? We now have an actual store. Let's take a look at that one more time view. Cool, awesome, Awesome, Awesome. Let's even check the categories as well. Put a categories. And as you can see, we do have clothing, music and posters as major categories and on the clothing we have hoodies and T shirts as sub categories. Music has albums and singles as sub categories. I know I I realized that our store was supposed to be selling clothes, but unfortunately I couldn't find sample images for, like, shoes and suits and handkerchiefs and things like that sell just for the purposes off this particular course. Legis. Assume that, uh, we're also selling music and albums and singles as well on online stores. Less posters. So that's it. Full the categories for tags. No product tags. But that's fine. It's OK. Ah attributes as well. We do have a natural it for column, which is just OK. It's fine. No need for more than that. So that's it for importing and populating our own lines story. If you have any questions, always feel free to reach out to me. Thank you so much for watching the video. And as usual, I will see you in the next class. 22. The StoreFront Theme: Well, hello and welcome to a brand new section where we're going to begin to design the look and feel off our online store. And as you can see right now, the store looks more like a blawg, then an actual store where people can come in and buy products. So let's change that. But before we begin to talk about themes and plug ins and all that good stuff, I would like to make some very simple changes. I want to change the name off the store from my block to something better. I want to add a menu and also changed the Pima Wing structure as well. So let's quickly do that going to jump down here to settings General changes to was that cool store called Store and then the tug line is going to be we still cool stuff. So we sell cool stuff in the cool stole. I think that limes, I think it's ah, it's catchy, so I'm just save my changes. Let's go down to the prima links. Change from plane to post name change the product prima wings from default to shop base with category. I think this is better for Seo purposes. Google tends to like it when you're Pima. Links are structured, so I think this is the best. Our style beacon go with Let me save my changes. Come down to appearance menus. Let's create a main menu menu. Let's create that. And then from here, I'm just going to add all pages Octa menu and let me rearrange being shut down here. Set it to the primary menu safety menu. Let's take a look and okay, so cool stole the cell Cool stuff. And then we have ah, menu as well. Cool. All right, now let's address the elephant in the room if I can put it that way. Want theme? Do we use for online store? What theme do you use for your own online store? Now it is the an age where we have hundreds, if not thousands, off what themes available. It can become quite a challenge to choose the right theme, the perfect theme for your online store, and we have premium themes. We have free themes, and in a nutshell, my recommendation to you will be to always go for a premium theme. If you're serious about building your online store and the reason is because a problem theme has more flexibility. Premium themes generally are better than free themes. End the support you're going to get from a premium theme could be very, very useful in case your stock in case something isn't working as it should, you could always contact the authors, the developers off the theme end in. In most cases, there will be obligated to assist you to help you out. That's why I would always recommend using a premium theme. But for the purposes off this course, I thought that you know what? Maybe it might be a good idea to start off with a free thing. Instead, get you more comfortable working with will Commerce. And then at the end of the course, when you feel more comfortable, what commit premium themes, you have the confidence you can Then go ahead and select one. I will talk about some of the people themes all recommend to you much later in the course, but for now, let's go ahead and install a free theme, and the thing we're going to use is the theme recommended by who commas here on the website of a community themes click on e commerce themes. We have one called Store front. This is the thing were committed by the people who developed woke Hamas itself. So it only makes sense that this is the plugging that we're going to use. So what I'm going to do is to click on download storefront and let's come down to the back and over here, themes at new upload. Straggly. Stop here, Trump that when stole now and stole and then activate. All right, let's take a look. And as you can see right now, the theme has indeed being activated. Cool. Now, if I come back to the back End Com Ave. To appearance, click on Storefront over here to the wet. We have the child themes, and it stays. Take a look at our range of child themes for storefront that allow you to easily change the look off your store to suit a specific industry. As an example, I convey Click here, open this in a new tab. This is the best role child theme, and it is for people who have who sell food basically, and you can see right now this theme hasn't been built to give you that look and feel off a food store. You can see the pictures have everything. Looks This is just awesome. There were other child teams. We have one for the hotel. We have one for a pet shop. Let's take a look at the one for the hotel. You come down here, click on life demo And as you can see right now, everything has been laid out for you. For your customers Over here, they can see pictures off places, American staying. They can book now. Some pretty cool stuff for the Petrobas. Well, click on the live demo over here. This is for people who sell products for pets, like cats and dogs and sharks and whatever. Ah, but it's pretty much you have all these teams that have been built out for you already. So if you are taking this course and you belong to one of these very specific industries, I would recommend to you to take a look at these things that they have. Okay, I will recommend that we that been said since we're using a free theme in store phoned, I kind of feel that you know what the slight negative I have about store found itself is that it's a very basic theme. It's not very flashy. You can't really do much stuff in it. I mean, people can still come down to your shop page and then, you know, select puts by them. But it's it's it's not very catch Eve, you know, for lack of a bit award. We need something more punchy, something that looks it bit better, more elegant. So thankfully would soften has free child things that we can actually use. So if I come back the hit down here to start fund and down here, right click on view, all store French, all themes it takes us in here and now over here and the menu I can click on free. And over here we do have one called May Steal my steel, or however you want to you pronounce it. If I click on there, click on the Life demo. This looks a lot better than the storefront theme, right? It looks more, more, more, more catchy again for lack of a better word, and the shop page looks better. We have all sorts of stuff looking really, really cool, so I kind of figured out that You know what? Let's eventually decide to use theme. I steal theme instead, as opposed to the store from theme. So join me. The next class were I will show you how to install the my still thin and will begin to customize the design off our website. Think if watching, I will see you in the next class. 23.

But animal at the end of the day, really, the thing was free. So you might as well just go ahead and quit. You account with them. And if you're gonna be building the online store, I have a pretty good feeling that you're eventually going to want to buy some products from Yokohama. So you would need an account then. Anyways, so go ahead and create your account. I am a returning customers. So all I'm going to do right now is to provide my email address, and I'm going to log in. Now.

But I do have some text over here, which is going to grab very quickly. Let me paste that in here. So what did I come up with? I said we had make the most awesomest products in the world. This is actually from the theme. But then I added we a genuine, reliable, affordable and fashionable give products try today. Cool. All right, So let's do that. Let's come all the way down here as well. Do we want to display product categories on the home page? Yes, We wanted to split the port of categories. Display featured products? Yes, let's display eight of them. This baby's in products. Yes, display eight of them. And then for the block. We can also display block posts on the homepage is what I'm gonna click on. Save changes. And now let's take a look at the home page and shake that out. No, this looks way better, but actually you know what? Let's hide. Keep it of categories instead. Since we don't have images for them, let's just stick with the featured products and the recent products. I think we can do that. Instead, let's come back their head to the back end. Ah, that's going down to me. Still settings. Ah, home page. So let's hide the put up categories that save the changes. All right, so cool. All right, so we have the featured products and then we have the recent products. Awesome. And then, of course, we have the block post from our block, which is the one that came by default from this side ground. Ah, hosting. So that's it for the my still theme for the home page. As you can see right now, it's beginning our Web page. A website begins to look more like an online store, and if you're wanting where I got this image from, I got it for free from a site called Picks Obey. You can find products for free over here. Just come down to the home page, and you can simply type in something like, Let's say, fashion in here. Press enter. And now you will have all these images that you can download for free so you could click in here and then here in here you'll find the link that says Free download.

When you click on the documentation down here, it will show you how to set up the theme, which we're going to do right now, but you can always use this page does documentation as a guide for future references. So let's jump back down to a back end. Let's come down to my steel click on settings, and the very first in right now is going to be the general setting. So what do we have? We have the themes style. Should we have the fold? CSS. But I could go with blue dot CSS, and this would change the general coloring off the entire site. So let's see, for example, it's on blue dots. Is is now. Let's see what we have, I come here and that you can see the links have been turned to blue. Let's go back. Let's Genesis to yellow.

Wish I'll show the except of the post this play bread comes Yes, we want breadcrumbs. And if you don't know what breadcrumbs are, let me show you what they are. Let me check this box. Save the changes. And if I come down here and let's say I clicked on the Ninja Schilit product in here, you can see right now we have, like a structure for the links. The initial it is on the shop and the shop is under home. This is what we refer to as a breadcrumb. It's an easy way for customers or clients on your ability to navigate their way around.

Ah, location. Name is Alabama location. Address is very quickly. Number six. Ah, uh, Bama Cool road. I'm just typing stuff in here. Ah, Wing Mills Alabama and ah, USA. My telephone is going to be 2 to 2, 3334433 So be sure to give us a call. Ah, fax is gonna be the same thing as well. I'm just in the last 1 to 4. Oh, an email address we have add mean at cool online store the gum. All right. So unable to subscribing connect functionality on the contact page template.

Well, if you wanted to, you would have to add the coordinates. And here simply click on the Google Maps link and you will be instructed on how you could do that. So I'm just save my changes and let's come down two pages and let me add a new one. Okay? It's gonna be for the contact page and now down here to divide.

So, as you can see, we now have the address, the wonderful edges that we put in. We have the telephone number, the fax number of the email address and, of course, a form with which people can use to contact or swift.

Generally the next class available continue to design. Ah, but sign. Thank you for watching. I will see you then. 25. Creating Our Main Menu: one of the most important parts of your entire website is going to be your main menu. And the reason why this is so is because that is the default place where your potential clients and customers are going to go to when searching for a product that they're interested in. Take a look here at Jack Threads, a first timer all the first time it has to do here is to come down to, let's say, clothing and instantly. Instantly he can see the sub categories. It is looking for shirts. He's got the shots. Why did he comes down to shoes? He can see shop all shoes. He can city categories, boots, Nichols shoes. He comes on to accessories. He sees all these sub categories on the accessories instantly. So you really want to make it as easy as possible for your customers to find what it is that they're looking for. Especially if your all installed starts getting bigger and bigger. You start selling 5 to 6 different categories of products. You want to make it as easy as possible for your costume us to come in and find what they're looking for as quickly as possible. And that's why your main menu is crucial to the success of your entire online store. Now, unfortunately, the default menu system fall. Ah, what difference doesn't really do a good job? I mean, in a way you can. Still, your customers can still look at what they're looking for is just not going to be as as enticing as it as it's supposed to be. Before we delve into that, let's for civil create on actual manual. It's at the product categories to our main menu. Right now we have the my account page to Shop page to check out an undercard. However, we do have product categories, so they come down to put UPS categories. We do have clothing, which is the main category. We have the sub categories of hoodies and T shirts. We have music with the sub categories of albums and singles and enemy have posters, which is another I mean category. So what I want to do is to add these menu items to our main menu. However, if a community appearance go to menus, there is no place for me to add those meadows. Those items you can see on the post it's not there. It's not on the custom links, and it's not on the categories. So well you want to do is to jump down to your customized button under appearance. We can customize now in here. Click on the widgets. Well, im sorry budgets, menus, rather menus. And then he did in here. Click on your premiere menu, click on odd items and now, down Here, you would find that the product categories swick and click on product categories and I can just begin to hit the pause button, the plus button, the plus button, the plus button to add everything. Singles albums. Okay, click outside I can save and before Stephen in publish in. I can actually rearrange the product categories. So what I'm gonna do, I hear is on the clothing. I'm going to drag Who these to the rights? Just a little bit a drag T shirts to the light. Just a little bit. Could we have music as a main category drag singles to the right drag albums to the right as well? And then we have posters. Awesome. So right now I'm gonna click, save and publish and let's see what we have. Let's go back Teoh Insight. And now, on the clothing. We have the sub categories on the music. We have this subcategory. It's fine, but these does not look anything like Obi half over here. This is really interesting with all the images and text, and it just makes you wanna click on the links. So what I'm going to do in the very next video is I'm going to introduce you to a plug in that will allow obstacle eight mega menus like the one we have here in Jack threats. I will see you then. 26. The WR Mega Menu: while I was trying to figure out what plugging we're going to use to replicate what it is that we have in here on the jack threads or in fact, the kind of menu system that you would find on any major online store. I ran into a problem, and the problem was that every plugging that could do something like this. Waas not free. There were all premium plug ins, some war, $29 somewhere as high as $59 so on and so forth showers. Real discouraged, I was thinking to myself, Wow, I might have to actually use a premium plug in to build out the mega menu for the online store. Luckily, though I can be can be very stubborn when it comes to second for free stuff. So I hung in there and I kept searching, searching, searching, trying to find a free plug in with which we could use to build out a mega menu end. I am very happy to tell you that I finally found such a plug in, and this plug in is called the W All Mega menu in its by Wu Rockets and let me just say a huge thank you to these guys for making is plugging food because it is amazing what it can do. It is a fantastic plug in, and it is one that I absolutely recommend. Let's go ahead and quickly download the plug in quickly before the ticket premium. So let's go ahead and ah, and installed a plug in quickly. Ah, appearance plug ins at new. All right, upload the plug in and let me just drag that in here, ship it in and stole now and stole and activate the plug in and cool. All right, so you get this message blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. All right, I am going to come down here to add new will. Have to quit a profile for our main menu. I'm gonna click at New. And now in here. The title is going to be main menu. Okay. And as you can see that the location has been said to the primary menu. This is the menu that where we want to tone on the mega menu. So and then click publish. All right, now, here are the the top categories that we have on our main menu. As you can see over here. These are the many items that we have. This sub categories are ensuring so, but that's not important. What I want to do is to click on clothing because clothing is one off the categories that has sub categories. It has T shirts and hoodies under it, right? So I'm going to click on Taunt on mega menu for this particular category. Now in here, right now, I can begin to design the rule that I have laid out for me in here. I can click Add a column, and that's what I'm going to do him quick. I'm gonna cook on added column, and the reason why I'm doing this is because I want a mega many that has the following kind of structure. It has an image to the left, and then it has text to the light. So now in here I have the ability to add different elements. I'm gonna click on add element for the very First column and in here I'm going to click on Image, Okay, and now in here we can add the image file and let's go with a T shirt. Let's go with a really nice T shirt. Let's go with the great one. Let's go with the great T shirt instead into the post and he conceded Preview right here. Okay. And cool. Mine couldn't click on safe Now, in here to the right, I'm going to click on Add Element. I'm going to click on text and we already have some default text in here, as you can see so I can choose to either keep that or I can trim it down. Ah, let me see. Let just let just keep that as it is right now and click on safe. Let's click on a date. Now let's take a look at ah main menu now and see what we have. Come on the clothing and take a look at that. We have clothing, we have the shirt and then we have the text next to it. Isn't that awesome? This is really, really awesome. Okay, cool, cool nights. Let's come back. Let's go back to the clothing. The one I'm going to do is to create another role for the Hootie's for the hoodies. So I'm going to do is to click on add low, okay. And now in here, Over there I'm sorry. Before even doing that, you can simply come down here and then select the kind off rule you want to add this structure off the role. You have two columns. You have three columns, four columns and so on and so forth. You have two columns over here, but with different sizes. The first column here is smaller than the second column. So anyway, I'm just gonna go with the six by six going to click that. So now we have the two columns Oliver against. I'm gonna click on Add Element. Let's go with an image. Let's select an image for a hoodie. Let's go with what color do we go with in this case? Let's go with the Red one. Its incident to the post. Let's click Save Let's come down here to light at Element. Click on text again and let me just save that. Let's update. Let's now come over here and refresh the page over again. Come down to clothing and take a look at that fist. Arise on that. This is I'm sorry. I get a little bit excited. This looks good. Okay, Even though, Yeah, we can still do so much better, but you can see right now, all made. Many is starting to look a lot better than the default Our menu style that we had with Wordpress. So this is a quick teaser to what we can do that this plug in. I don't want this reader to go on too long, so I'm going to stop the video right here. Join me. The next class available continued to enhance the beauty and the functionality off arm in many using this wonderful free plug. And I will see you then. 27. WR Mega Menu 2: All right, let's continue building out our mega menu using the wonderful plug in the w R mega menu by with buckets. Let's come back down here. And what I'm going to do is to add some titles to, ah, image and text so I can click on the Penn button right here to edit the image and in hand is going to say, Uh, shirts. Oh, not sure it's shirts, Alex shirts. Okay, But as you can see right now, for some reason, the element titles do not show up. Okay, they don't show up in the actual display. That's fine. I'm just save that, but you can see right now we can easily identify what block this is. It's the should block. Let me also do this engineer for the Texas Well, let's go it shirts. But actually, I would like shirts to show up on the display so that people know what it is that they're looking at some good typing. Sure, it's not sure it's why. My type in shreds All right, shirts H three, click outside, and now you can see the preview Cool. Let's save that, and I can do the same thing in here as well.

Well, uh, who these safe date toilets come back downhill? It's refresh. And OK, so now we have shirts and we have Hootie's Awesome. But now check this out. Okay? We can do so much more with the design off this mega menu. What I'm gonna do is to come back down here, go back again to clothing. And now for the image. I'm going to click on the panel once again. And now down here where we have the appearance over area where we have the appearance, we can change the container style. We have no style involved. Circle thumbnail. I like circle, So I'm gonna go with circle. And now you can see the design that we have. It's all inside of a circle. This looks good. You can also choose the alignment. If you wanted to, you could change the element from inherits to left. Center right is all up to you. I'm just gonna click on save because I like that design. Let me do the exact same thing for the hoodies as well. Appearance. Let's change this to circle is the circle of life. Okay? I'm just a bait that come over here with fresh and clothe and take a look at that. This looks better, doesn't it? This looks a lot better. It's starting to get there. OK, cool. Let's go back again to clothing. And now let's take a look at text. What can we do with the text? There's so much we can do over here. Click on appearance Now over here you can enable something called a drop cap Actually had no idea what this was. I had to experiment. But if I click on Yes, take a look at the s. A job cap simply takes the very first letter and then enhances it in different ways. So but deformed attributes. If I start to bring it down, you can see what it does you can see now the becomes very, very big and the H I ality is the rest of the would still remains the same often size as it won't. So you can save that. That's updates. Let's calm down here. Let's refresh. See what we have. And then how you can see shirts. We have that design. That's that's attitude that design off the S. We have a right over there. Cool, Awesome. So come back down here again. Go back to clothing. Let's try the same thing for the hood is as well appearance in able job cap and take a look at that. Let me just bring this size down to visit 60. Save that. That's updates. Come back here and we fresh and OK, check that out. We got shows we got who it is with the S and the H looking all flying cool. I'm sorry. I just get excited whenever I'm like, you know what? Can we really, really, really awesome plugging? That's free. That's just one of the best things ever. Cool. What else can we do? Let's go back. Let's go back. Go to clothing once again. And now in here for the actual rule itself, we can do some design. I can click on depend bottom right here for the low click in there and now in here we can choose a background color. We can go with an image we can go with that pattern great and call a solid color. I can choose a solid color. Let's go with Ah, let's go with something blue. Let's drop this down here. Let's see, Let's go. But that is an example. Okay, let's go with that. I can save that's updates. Come back with fresh clothing and now you can see it's blue. So what I can do is to change the text from black to white. So let's do that. Go back to clothing, come back to the tax click on Depend Button. And what I can do is to select all that's Tuggle. The button hairless changed the called too white, and I'm going to save that. However, the drop cap is still in black, so I'll have to change that as well. I'll go back to appearance. The job cap. This is where we change the color. Let's go typing F f f f f f so six FC calls whites. Just in case you were wondering press enter, Click outside that save everything is all white. Now let's go back in here and let's refresh the page clothing and take a look at that. This looks so much better than what we had initially. So I invite you to try as much. It's also try to do the same thing. Try playing around with the hood is that we have in here as well and you might notice almost immediately that the H that we've lost the job cap for the hood is now. I'll be honest with you. This is something that I noticed. I sometimes the drop caps may work. Sometimes they may not work. I don't know what the problem is. It could be that the plug in hasn't yet been updated to match the letters vision of Wu Commerz or the letters vision of what prayers. But there tends to be some inconsistencies, especially whenever you make in changes to the text that we have inside off the text block soap. I don't know what it pulling me is better if you're having the same issues where you make a change to shirts as an example and then you lose the job. Careful hoodies all vice versa. You make a change to the hoodies textbook, and then you lose a job cap for the short section. Don't don't worry, don't be surprised It's something buggy with the plug in. But hey, it's still an awesome plugging off. Also, I won't spend too much time worrying about that. So let me pause the video and stop video right here. Will wisdom the video the next section available? Continue again to enhance the functionality off our menu. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next last. 28. WR Mega Menu 3: Okay, So far, so good. We're doing very well with the mega menu. I have gone ahead to add a grazier background for the hoodies. And as you can as you notice the H, the drop cap for the H has come back. It appeared right after I made a change to the background color. So again, this is one of those buggy things that we have with this plug in. But overall, this is still a fantastic plug. And so I just letting you know, just in case, you know, you finding some inconsistencies with your job cap, it happens. All right, Now it's cool. It's old, nice and find that we have a shirts. We have image. However, people still cannot click on the images. So are we going to do right now is to make the images clickable so that when people click on the images, it takes them to the pages that contains the categories off products that are looking for. So let's come back down here where we have the image. I'm going to click on the pen again. And now here we have the on click. I am going to change this from no action to calm down all the way here, down here to put a category and going to select that. And now in here for the single item, I'm going to click on the drop down and a single Adam here is going to be T shirts right, because that is the category of productive looking at. And then you can open up in your current blouse in a new tab or in a light box. Let's go through new tab. Let's save that. Let's do the same thing in here as well. Ah, go to the Put a category and it put a category we're looking for right here Is who these open in a new tab order. Let's see what happens if you open it in a light box.

Choosing a Premium Theme: When it comes to choosing a premium theme for your online store, you literally have hundreds of different options that you can choose from. So the goal off this particular video is to provide you with some guidance on what to look for wenches and a theme to use and where you can buy premium themes from for your online store. Over here, I'm on Thin Forest Artnet, and this is easily, easily one of the very best places where you can buy what prison themes from not just for all in stores but also for like, blog's and business websites and so on and so forth in here. If you come down to the e commerce tab and click on Wu Commas, you would have the different kinds off themes which you could use, and they really have quite a lot. So let's take a look at the very 1st 1 as an example, a miracle click on the tab and in here we have the life preview and schooled way down, and he me in here. You can begin to see the templates that come with this theme. Click on Temple number three and you could almost hell that this particular fame is designed for online stores that sell clothes, quite possibly woman's clothes. Specifically, it's going all the way down, you can see and also jewelry as well. So when she's only theme, it's also very important that the theme to choose matches the can off products that you sell. If you're selling the electrics, for example, this particular theme wouldn't match the books that you sell. This is designed, morph like, you know, models and wrist watches and clothes and, you know, stuff like that. So that's one very important thing you need to keep in mind. Whenever you're choosing a theme for your online store, make sure that the theme it matches the products that you're selling let's come all the way down here. All right, so we have Allegro. Ah, what first theme for hand tools and equipment stores. Okay, so this looks different. Let's see. Allegro, Let's go toe Life preview. All right, so right now you can see that this looks completely different from the miracle theme. This particular he might here is designed for stores that sale equipment, generators, drillers, blowers, as you can see. So again, lawnmowers as well. So If you're the kind of business owner selling such products, then obviously this would be an ideal theme for you to go with. But it shouldn't just be about the design only what if you had, like, let's say, 34 themes that look very good to you? How would you separate one thing? How would you choose the best theme from such a collection of themes? Well, what you want to do is to take a look at the overview, read about the things that comes with the theme that features. For example, the Allegro theme down here has the evolution slighter. It hasn't made a menu, agreed a list view. It has a King composer 1-click installation and so on and so forth so you can read more about the functionality, the pre built functionality that comes with the theme you can see multiple homepage layouts . It supports a mega menu. As you can see. Ah, you have listen sliders as well. Details. Single point of view. So all in all this looks like a very, very useful theme for a store that sells equipment. So these are two things that you need to keep in mind. Make sure the design off the thing matches the product that you're selling. And then also be sure to take a look at the features that come with the theme. Try to get themes that have as much pre built functionality as possible so that you don't have to go out looking for additional plug ins to enhance the functionality off your theme . All right, so that's it's for theme. Foist here is a very interesting article from Khalib, and the article was the 30 best.

So if you're selling products to help you lose fat or, you know, general fitness products, things like that for health, you could also use this theme as well. Now, I would be honest with you. The link I'm gonna provide you is an affiliate link. I am an affiliate off this guy's, which means that if you buy any of the themes through the Lincoln provide you, I will get a baseball commission. So I'm just being honest with you, but I am not promoting this gay specifically because I'm gonna fill it and promoting them because I do business with them and I do business with them because they are really good and I vouch for them again.

Those are the two most important things. They should think off for your online store for now. So that's it for the video. I hope I have been able to provide you with some guidance and some tips on what to look for when trying to buy a premium theme. Thank you so much. Fortunate video. And as usual, I will see you in the next class. 31. Creating Test Accounts on PayPal: All right, let's get started with the most popular payment gateway, which happens to be PayPal. And before you begin to accept PayPal payments on your online store from real customers, it's often a very good idea to make sure that people is actually working on your store. And the way how you can do this is by creating test accounts we are going to create to test accounts. One account will be used by the buyer to make the payment, while the other account will be used by us, the merchant, the person except in the payment. And the way how we can do this is by enabling the papal sandbox. We'll have to check this books right here. And as long as this box is checked, no real transactions will take place on our store. Because what we do right now is we're telling welcome. Is that right? Now, if anyone is making any payments via PayPal on our stole, it is what testing purposes. Okay. All right. So you can also change the title off you'll from PayPal to something else. You can change the description you have option of providing your PayPal e mail address this is the actual real papal email address. You can change the receivers email address as well to something else. You can add a specific prefix for the invoices. Unity to you by people. You could also choose to send your shipping details to pay Pau instead of building. If you're using people for shipping labels, this might be a good option for you. Address over lied. Now people has the ability to also verify the addresses that your customers provide. However, it tends to generate a rose every once in a while and even welcome was recommends that you keep it disabled. So I don't see any reason why you would want to enable this payment action you have captured and author wise I'm just gonna live it on capture. And that's all that really concerned about this page them. Just go ahead and click safe changes. All right, so we've been able send box, and now let's go ahead and create eight test accounts with PayPal. No, I'm over here, a developer. The papal to come. I am going to resume that you already have a PayPal account. If you don't, you'll have to go ahead and created people account before you can begin accepting PayPal payments on your online store. So let me come down here and log in. Look, an and from him gonna click on dash board. Let's come down here to the light to the left, rather where we have send box and then accounts. And even if this is the very first time you visited this page, you might already see some test accounts already created for you by PayPal. It might be your your email address associated with PayPal and that you will have something like Dash buyer or something like that. So don't be surprised if you see one or two test that counsellor d credit for you by PayPal . And as you can see, already have some test accounts I already created in the past, as you can see. But now I'm gonna show you how we can actually create accounts. So gonna click on, create account over here and let's provide the details and then leave the country For United States, the account type of quitting right now is the account for the customer, the person making the payment. So it will be a personal account for the email address Let's go with. It's a test buyer 2016 ATS cool store. So calm and ah, we have let me just change the password in here. They just want to make sure that the password you're typing in is one that you're familiar with because you will be are going to have to use thes credentials to take for testing purposes later on. So make sure that passenger providing is actually real password one that you can remember all my payment methods, people balance. Let's just assume that we have $10,000 in our account bank verified, Yes, payment card. I'm going to go with PayPal now. The options you have here for the payment card depends on the country that you choose. If I chose, say, Belgium, for example, and then we only have credit cards available. So let me just go back here. United States PayPal credit cards. Let's go with Visa. You know, I'm going to click on create accounts. All right, so now we have tested by a 2016 at cool start off corm. It's a personal account. Now, if I drag my mouse over here, this is the bottom between which with which you could use to clone the account, but says You can see the misses that say's account cannot be cloned. That means that at the moment PayPal is still publishing the account it takes. Usually a few minutes before you're at your account is actually ready to be used. But while we're waiting for that, let's go ahead and now create a second account for the business now for the country you have to change from the United States to, I recommend United Kingdom, and I'll explain to you why, which isn't the the UK in the very short and very soon the contact is gonna be business. Our email address. That's a test merchant 2016 at Cool Stole the calm, the same password again. Okay, let's come down here. PayPal Balance. $100,000. Let's make the one million my not one million great British pounds credit cards. Visa, Delta Electron. Let's now go ahead and quit. Ate the account and OK, so now you can see that we cannot clone the new a kind of created, but we can now clone the personal kind of acquitted because right now it's ready. So before we can, before we can use this email address to begin accepting credit card payments on our site. We are going to have to upgrade it from business to business pool. You can see right here my cell adult cell, a 123 regimental com has a business pro type. It's not just regular business now. The reason why I chose Great Britain and not of the United States is because for some very old reason, I don't know why PayPal doesn't allow you to upgrade your test business accounts created in the U. S. I don't know why that's the case, but that's just how it is. I searched online trying to find answers, but I couldn't come up with any. So great Britain was like the country that was recommended the most by people online actually tried use in Switzerland. It didn't allow me to create top grade the account either. So what I'm gonna do right now is to pause the video for a few moments because, like I said, it takes about 2 to 3 minutes before an account is actually ready to be used. Someone opposed the video, and I will resume once the account is ready to be used. All right, I'm back. And it took about. I waited for about a minute and 20 seconds there about, but I refers the page, and now the account is ready. So what? I'm gonna do it. Do it now it's you Upgrade the type from business to business Pro is to click on the I were right here. I'm gonna click on profile, and over here you have the option of upgrading to pros. I'm gonna click on upgrades to pro click on Enable. And now let's hope this actually works. Because I have run into this issue. So militants before where people say is ah so view we couldn't upgrade. Your accounts are Please try again later. So we'll see what happens if it doesn't work. That's fine. We'll just wait again for a few more moments, so let's just see. Ah, ok, well, the light with you. All right, so we're sorry. Something went wrong. Well, in England pool, please try again. So this is a message that you are very likely going to get. But don't worry. Just click close. Let's come back down here and refresh. All right, so it's still business, but I'm going to do is to pause the video again, wait for a few more minutes, refresh the page and hopefully it'll have turned to business pro. All right, I'm back. And as you can see right now, it has become business. Prue. All I did was to wait a few more minutes and refreshed the page. It's still then show up. So what I did was to click on the job down. Arrow went back to profile, and then and then that's all I did. I just clicked on upgrade to pro, and that's all I did. I did not run the process again. All it was. Just click on the link, trainable to upgrade to pro. You would see the button that says, Enable I did not click on enable all that. It was just to close it, refresh the page. And now we have the type of business pro. So we have successfully created to test accounts via PayPal. So, Jimmy, the next class will will begin to make payments and accept payments using these test accounts. Thank you. Fortunate. We'll see you then. 32.

However, we need to make sure that the people in villages that we have on our back end is the same in villages that we used to create the business pro account on people. So go ahead and make that change. Gonna come down here, let's save changes. And I'm gonna come down to shipping as well.

This so ah stripe will provide you with a fake credit card number that that you can actually use to make the payment. So I'm just go ahead and copy this click. Continue to payment. All right. So let me just paste the cardinal. But there, let's go. With a valid months, I'm gonna go with 09 20 for the year 2020 and ah, 671 for the CBC. Pay $18 or K. I think payment has gone through order. Received order number wanted to for $18. Credit card. Streib. Cool. Alright, Awesome. I'm just drag this away. Come down to stripe, Let me refresh the page. And now you can see what I have. $38 the reason why it's not 18. Those because I already had $20 there previously for testing purposes. But now you can see we have actually received payment via stripe. Awesome. So let's come back down here to dashboard. Go to orders. And now we can see number one aids. No. So it number 182 yet by Alex Oni and it's by a stripe. So we have the green over the same processing. So if I had been just click on complete and all right, so the payment has been completes. Now, we now have Teoh test payments via PayPal and striped. So thank you very much for watching the video. As usual, German, the next class available continued to explore payment gateways on our online store. Thank you for watching. I will see you then. 34. Using Amazon Payments: the last human get we're going to you very briefly torch on would be Amazon payments. Now, to be honest, I wasn't sure whether or not to make this video because I personally have never used Amazon before. I have never I mean, I've never used Amazon to accept or cell checks up payments or sell anything before. I mean, I've bought lots of things on Amazon, but I've never actually used Amazon as a payment gateway before. If you also one who is experienced with Amazon and you've used Amazon to sell, and you like to use Amazon payments on your online store, lenders walk you very quickly through the process. You would have to. I download the plug in the Amazon payments plug, inform who commas. It's pretty much the same process. A strip of papal. I just download the plug in, install it, and once you've installed that, you would find the Logan and pay with Amazon Tab in here on the your check out page. So you would have to enable Amazon payments and you would have to provide the Silla I D. The mentioned access key and the mention secret key. And then, of course, enable sandbox. And I believe that's all you're going to need to make test payments via Amazon. Our Phil. Free to do some more research on your own if you're interested in using Amazon payments. But I don't use Amazon. I've never used it before, so I'm not gonna pretend like I know what it is that I'm talking about. So that's it for the payment Gateways joined me in the next class. Well, we will talk about how to manage orders in your online store thinking fortune. I will see you then. 35. Managing Orders: Okay, So far, so good. We've got into orders on our store, one via people and one via stripes. So let's take a look at how we can manage orders as we receive them on our online store. Any on the orders page, you will see the I, which you can click on to take a proper look at the transaction. And in here we have the general details. The building details, the shipping details. We even have the i p address of the customer. And you can change the status from completed to let's say we funded, maybe even filled or canceled down here to the right where we have the order notes. This is basically the entire history off this particular transaction and you consider knows that we've had our people had a validation area, and this is actually an error message that you're very likely to get on the most test transactions. Most payments you make in a sandbox or usually result in a validation error. Oh, so you're more than likely to have the same area as well. Ah, the order studios was changed from on hold to complete. It will be accepted payment down here we can either add a private note about this particular particular construction. All we can send a note to the customer so I could say something like, Thank you. Your order has shipped, Alex. Okay. And I could add that, and this message is going to go straight to the customer, and you can see right here, right now, under the order notes, you can see. Thank you. You order has been shipped. So again, this particular section keeps track off every single thing that happens. We get in this particular transaction and let me just drag my G mail account in here. And as you can see, I have just gotten it's It's a Z. Thank you. Your order has shipped, Alex. So this is a pretty cool way off having a personal touch with your customers. You can type in the name. Tell them. Oh, thank you so much for buying this product. We really appreciate it. Ah, here's a coupon for your next purchase or something like that, you know, and they will always receive that. All right, let's come down to reports. And in here you can keep track off all your purchases. The cells basically all these connections you've had so far on your online store, we have the gross sales. We have the average gross daily sales for the last seven days. How many orders were placed? Ah, how many we funded, How much it just for Shippen. Our sales by product sales by category of any coupons being used. This is simply a wonderful part off Luke Hamas. The ability to track your transactions using statistics. And they're just orders you have for customers as well. How many you've signed up. You can keep track of your stalk. You can keep track of taxes as well. It's a pretty robust, ah, way of keeping track off your transactions on your site. So that's it for managing orders in your welcome. A storm. We'll see you in the next class. Thank you for watching. 36. Managing Refunds: Unfortunately, there were times when your customers may request a refund from you. And even though it's something that none of us ever likes, we don't like it when we sell something to someone and the person asks for a we found it sucks, but it's part off e commerce, so you need to know how to process reforms whenever they happen. Now, down here where we have our orders, let's take a look at the order made via PayPal. One thing you should bear in mind is that whenever you your process and we'd phones, the actual process itself largely depends on the payment gateway. So the way you may process a reformed for PayPal might be different from the way you process that we formed from stripe. So down here, this is the payment via PayPal. Over here I can click on refund and clicking on the phone. This brings out this box right here that asks for the refund amount, and I could say something like, Okay, I mean, funding back $15 But unfortunately, ive you click reformed $15 via PayPal and tried to do this way. You will see this much. It's saying something like reform failed. No transaction. I d These very likely happens because this is a sandbox payment. No real money was actually sent. So it's more than likely that whenever you try re funding our payments made in the sandbox , you might receive that can off message. That's via PayPal. If this was an actual real our purchase, you should be able to refund the money. But let's take a look at the one that was made by a stripe for stripe works. Because if I come down here, go to Lee Fund. Come on here and say, OK, I'm gonna refund you $10. Let's reform $10 very stripe. Click on there, click OK. And now you can see we found and you can see the message of the funded $10 back. And over here on the order notes, these actually did not automatically register on the the order notes. So what would have to do is to come down here under the order status and change from completed to be funded. Alright, funded, let's save the order. And now you can see the order status has changed from completed to refund it, so it would have been nice if this particular box it was automatically updated whenever we had a refund. But will I guess we'll come us. Uh, maybe maybe in the future will commence will be able to do that. But that's basically how you can walk with refunds again. It'll actually depends on the pain and get where you're using if you're using PayPal and it was a real payment and pretty sure you should be able to refund the payment using the same method as stripe. So that's it for how to manage reforms on your online store. Thank you, Fortune. I will see you in the next class. 37. Managing Coupons: Today is December 23rd 2016 and it's Christmas. And as you can imagine, lots off online stores and businesses offering their products and services at discounted rates, you might need a coupon to be able to get the discounts, so it's rather fits in that today we talk about how to create and how to use and manage coupons on your online store. So I'm going to do is to come down here to will Come us click on coupons and let's create a coupon for Christmas. Okay, so in here we're going to add the cold, which is going to be Christmas 2016 description. I'm not going to add a description. This is pretty self explanatory. All right, so down here, General. Now in here, we can create four different kinds off coupons. You can either have a coupon for an entire cart, so you could say something like $50 off everything that you buy on any online store. Or you could go with the percentage instead and say something like 20% off our everything that you buy on the online store. Or you could apply the coupons specifically to products as well you could apply a regular discount, maybe $50 off a particular product or you could say 10% off off a particular product. So let's go with a caught percentage discount, and in here you can add the value. So I'm gonna go with 20% off everything that a Kozma buys now in here. You can also allow for a shipping with the use of this coupon. However, make sure that a free shipping method has been set for everyone to be able to use. You can read more about that in this particular document. Cuban expiry date. I'm just going to go with 31st off this year. Let's come down to the usage restriction now. In here. You can set a minimum amount of money to be spent by the customer before they can use the coupon. So let's go with ah, 400. Now Hitler's going $40 so you must spend at least $30 before you can use the coupon. Now, in here, we have something by the interest in a maximum spend, and I'm telling you, I don't know about you, but I have never, never, ever seen an online store or business scene. Hey, this is the you can you can spend more then this amount of money before you can use these coupon. I have never, ever seen any business do that. It's always about you haven't to spend a minimum of one before you can use a coupon in here is the opposite. They're saying that if you spend more than let's say $40 you will not be able to use this. Keep on. So I don't know about you. I personally have never seen that before, so I'm just gonna live this blank because I want my customers to spend as much asi they can . I don't want it to be any restrictions on how much they can spend. So it's up to you. I'm just gonna leave this blank our individual use on Lee so you can make sure that this coupon can only be used on its own. So if a customer has this particular coupon and another coupon, the Cosmo would not be able to use to keep on that whole so you can restrict that I'm going to check this box now. In here, you can exclude still items from being used by this coupon, and I think this is a very, very good idea because imagine you had a product that you're selling for $80 it's on sale for $60. You wouldn't want someone to come in and apply a coupon again on that simple it and get a program for, let's say, $20. You'd be losing money so you could restrict sale items from being able to use this coupon. Now, these also can greatly affect what you have in here. So over here at this contact is a percentage on the cart. Ive a costume are ends up, put it in one off the plugs. It's on sale to the cart. This restriction will wipe out the coupon for me used on the cart completely. So it doesn't matter if he wanted to buy 10 items and nine of them while for normal pricing and only one item was on sale. The fact that we've restricted, still at and so amenable to use this coupon means that the customer would not be able to use the coupon at all, So be aware of that now. In here, you can restrict the coupon to setting products or you can exclude that in predicts on being able to use the coupon, something that place to the categories as well. And in here we have the email restrictions, where you can add in email addresses that off customers whom you only want to be able to use the coupon usage limits. You can set a number here to, let's say, 100 coupons available, or maybe 200 or just leave it on a limited usage. And here you can, the strict usage limit per user as well. So maybe a customer can only use the coupon once or twice or limited. I'm just gonna live this unlimited Let's hit publish So we have our Christmas 2016 coupon active. So let's see how if it works, I'm just going to come down here, Open up my Firefox, pretend a new user he knew customer and, ah, let's come down here. Let's add Ninja Schilit. Let's ought to caught. Let's come down here as well. Oh, premium premium quality. Okay, let's add this one as well. All right, let's view the caught Now. Remember we said a restriction to be $40 but in here it's $55 So let me go ahead now and apply the keep on Christmas 2016. Apply coupon. Awesome. And as you can see right now, the coupon code has been applied and it's $11 off, say, right now, the total is $44 soap. That's how to create and manage coupons on your online store. Ah, be sure you don't abuse the use of coupons. Ah, I wish you all the very best. And he's a Vicky Pons and Ah, well, that's it for now. So thank you for watching that. We'll see you in the next class. 38. Managing Customer Accounts: when customers begin to create accounts in your online store, you can actually view all those accounts by coming down to users. Click on all users and now in here, you can simply click on customer to filter out all the customers that you have. And as you can see, that's me. That's my email address, and you can click on edit to make changes to their account. If you wanted to, he could change your name. Ah changed the email address. You could change the ship in the dress or, you know what have you could you could do lots of things if you wanted to. Also, I should point out that by default, whenever a customer creates an account, they will be assigned the goal off customer by Wu Commas. Now, in addition to the ad, me and it also or the you know, the the Default walls that what press creates for you whenever you install woo commas, commas will add two additional roles, which would be shop manager and customer customer. Of course, being the regular person who based products on your online store, a shop manager is someone who has access to the back end and can also access the product tab. So, for example, if your online store became very huge and you wanted someone to be able to go in, create products, modifier products at price, in shipping things like that, you can create an account for them and said they will to shop manager. There will be the person that will be able to manage to put us for you. All right, so that's that. Let's take a look at how the my account page actually looks like. So let me bring back my Firefox and let me tray Logan in as Alex Colony as myself because I'm gonna click on my account. Remember that I am looking in as myself, the customer who's got into product so far. So let me add my email address and then the password, which are used to create an account Look in. All right. So from here I have my dashboard, I can click on orders to see all the others have had in the past. Number 182 It was refunded. This was completed. I can click on the view to take a look. And of course he needed. I have all the details. Ah, I can make changes to my address. Is my shipping address my billing address? Ah, my account details as well. I can change that if I wanted to. So the rumors does a pretty good job off having a pretty robust my account page with which customers can update their information. However, I don't like the fact that we have a side bar to the left. This just looks kind of ugly, So Ah, let me quickly make a change to that. Let's go to old pages. My account. Okay, let me just change the layout. Make this fool with a swell up dates. Okay, Let's bring this back. Let's refresh. All right? Just looks so much better right now without the side by. So that's how to manage accounts on your online Stop. Thank you. Fortune to video. And as usual, I will see you in the next class. 39. WooCommerce Widgets: what we installed. Welcome us on online store. The plucking also gave us a bunch off widgets with which we could use to enhance the design and functionality off our online store. So what we're gonna be doing in the next series of videos would be to take a look at some of this individual widgets and see how they can make all install more interactive and more appealing. So to say to our customers, Before we do that, though, let's quickly come down to products. Go to attributes. And if you also installed the demo data from Wu commas, you would only have color as the sole attributes. So let's go ahead and add size fairly quickly. Add attribute. Let's add a bunch of sizes. Let's go with small Let's go with medium and then let's go with large. And the reason why I m ed in these attributes is because it is going to play a vital role in explaining how one off the widgets, which we're gonna took a took about works. So we now have two attributes in color and size. The last time you introduced to come down to products and make sure that we have variable products that have both, actually. So here's an example. The one injured are pink hoodie. I'm going to change the productive from simple to variable. Let's come down to attributes. Let's add color. Select all check useful variations. Save attributes. Let's add size as well. Select all used for variations. Let's save that. And then I'm gonna come down to valuations. And I'm just gonna creative vision, symbol attributes. Let's do that. So I'm just making making showed that right now we have variable products on our online store. So what I'm going to do is to do the same thing for three or four more products. Okay, so go ahead. Make sure that you have at least three or four products that are variable and have the divisions for size and color. So join me in the next class. We'll we will begin to talk about the widgets. Thank you for watching. I'll see you then. 40. WooCommerce Products Per Page Plugin: All right, So let's talk about a plug in that you might find very useful. Especially if you have lots off products to sail on your boat. Commas upside. And I'm talking about the book. Almost put us my page plugging It is by Joe when? So money no one is blocking doors is that it allows your customers to determine the number of products Do want to see per page right now by default on my products page always in right now Here is basically this is four by three This is 12 different products. OK, but what if someone wanted to see more than 12 point? What if they wanted to see 25 products will be 30 products, maybe even 50 products at once by default. There is no way to do that. But with this plug in, we can say OK, we can add like a small drop down box over here and then say I'll let the customer choose to display it on a fair products. Let them choose to display 50 put outside them, choose to display 100 projects at once and so on and so forth. So you want to go ahead and install the plug in. And when you do that, come over here to welcome us. Click on your settings, and then under settings, you will see products. Click on products and then on the products click on the display tab. All right. Now, when you do that, come overhead down here you will see the work almost products. But Page section and now over here is where we can add the list off the job, done options so we can slough with maybe showing 10 products on a single page space, then maybe 25 maybe 5100 and then maybe even 250. So these are the five different values with which our cosmos will be able to determine the number of products do want to show per page. There are also some additional options he near, like choosing the jumped on location. Let's keep that at the top on Lee, and then you can also choose to display all your products at once on your on a single page , you will have to make this negative one minus one, right, So let's save changes. And now let's go back to the products page. Let me refresh and I'll take a look. We now have this little job done here where our audience So our customers can now choose the number off products don't to show per page so they can set a show. 10 This will not become 10 products and they can show 25. And of course, I don't have up to 25 but you know that this will basically show all the 25 per looks at once that I have is and so on and so forth. So this would also walk on category pages as well. You can see over here on the clothing, I do have the same drop down as well. On that music, I have the same drop down as well. So this will be particularly useful. If you have lots and lots of proxies sale on different categories, you can simply install the plug in. You will have this very nice job down. We're your audience. Your customers can now decide how many products do want to show per page. Very, very useful. So once again, it is the Woo Commas products per page plug in by Joe and so money. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 41. The Price Filter Widget: Okay, So the very first widgets we're going to talk about will be the price filter widget. Now, I'm over here on the shop page where all our products have been displayed. And as you can see, right here to the left, we have our sidebar with the default widgets. So let me go ahead and remove them. First of all polls to us and comments categories, Meta archives. Get out. All right, So what I'm gonna do is just to drag this widget here called the Price Filter. Gonna come all the way up here. Let's drop that. And the default title is filtered by price, which is just fine. Let's click safe, come back with fresh, and now you can see the filter, our taps. What I can do right now is we can see the range, which is $2 to $35. And this tells you right now that the cheapest product we have is $2 the most expensive is $35. So let's just imagine, you know, we don't have $35 Aiken bling that have all the way down to 18 bucks click filter. So right now, all the products. We have this plane, our product range between $2.18 dollars, and this is a very, very effective widgets, which out absolutely recommend on your online store. You always want to make it as easy as possible for your customers to filter through your products. Even though the mega menu already does a good job off helping direct your customers toe the production want to buy. It helps to also have a filter with which customers could use to filter by price so that they know exactly the kind of projects that they can afford on your online stop. Also, you might notice that if I click on an individual, our product page, the filter, which it will not display and welcome us, is smart enough to know that if you're looking at an individual product, there is no point in you filtering the price anymore. So welcome. Us is smart enough to know that so the fields of digital Onley display on your shop page. So that's it for the filled out by price. We just join me, join me the next class where we'll take a look at another, but take a look at a couple of widgets which are very similar to the filter by price, which is Thank you for watching. I will see you then. 42. Layered Nav Filter Widgets: all rights in the last class, we edit the filter by price widget. And now in this class you're going to learn about three more additional widgets told. Enhance the filtering process. So let's go ahead. Let's jump out to the back end. I am going to drag the Wu commas lead now jump that down there and then drop it again. Some were pitting that. Now what the worker must lead now doors is that it allows us to filter by attributes like filter by size or color. So let's go ahead and add the filter by. Let's go with color. Let's filter by color theater, but is set to color down here. Let's filter by size. Let's just attribute to size and now in here we have the query type, but we have either end or all. All right, so this is very, very important because if you said it to end what this means, that if a user selects two attributes Onley products, which math which match both attributes will be returned. So, for example, if it uses selected small and then green Onley put except have a small attribute and a green attribute will be returned However, if I change this to all instead, what happens here is that if a user select two attributes, products which match either attribute will be returned. So let's take a look at this. Let's see how this actually works. Let's come back down here. Let's refresh the page. So in here right now, we have filter by color. We have filter by size so I can tell right now that we have seven products that have the green attributes for half blue. Five have black. We have large to have medium and full half small. So if I come in here right here and say, Okay, I want a small buttocks that medium products that are large as well. You can see right now that we practically have all the products showing up again. Now the reason why we only have six products and not the how many flexibly happy the 21 product is because only six of these products actually variable products. The order What's the other 15 products are either simple products or affiliate products, So whenever you're filtering by attributes, Onley, variable products will be returned. So if I come again to choose Soleil, a small, medium and in large. What this means is I'm practically asking to show me every single product that has a size attribute. However, if I come back down here and change this to and let's save this chances back to and as well if I come back down here with fresh, let me actually deactivate the sizes. All right. So again we have all 21 products. Now if I come down here and say Okay, I want Onley products that are large Onley puts that have medium as well and you can see Right now there's only one product that has both large and a medium size. And I can also tell appear right now that Onley one product has both the large sized medium size and a green size. And also one product only has the large medium and the blue color as well. That's remove medium right now I know that Onley one put it has a large size and also it. But I'm sorry. Three products have the large size and the green size Onley. One product has both large and the blue color. If I click on blue right now, this is the only print that has both blue and large the mount check blue And then I know that only two products have both large and black because of a click black. Right now these are the only supporters that have both a black attribute and a large attributes. Libyan check black women check large. Let me check medium Now in here, I know that only one product has a medium size and in green color. Right? Click on that. It is the duty right here. If I uncheck medium. I know that Onley four products have both a green color and a small size African small you can see Right now these are the only footprints that have both green and small in them. So that's how to use the end or or query in your off alien navigations. Let me come back down here and show you want more widget. Let me drag the layered nav filters. Now what this does is it simply tells us, tells us which filters actually active. So if I refresh the page right now, we can see right now that these all the two filters that are active, green and small and if I click on small right now, it immediately removes the small filter Click on green. It's almost a green filter, so it's maybe to a certain extent, may not be a necessary with it because you can already tell with the ex Highlight in black have been selected. You can tell that. Okay, black is active, but it's not really up to you. Maybe for your design purposes, this might actually be useful before I go, though you can see right now by that filter by Kohler isn't exactly the most appealing display. It will be nice if we actually had a wicked that had the actual Kahlo's showing up. So we had, like, a black color. We had Blue Call, and then we had going color. So what I'm gonna do right now is to introduce you to a plug in a free plug it with which we could create something like that. So, Jimmy, in the next class, we'll we'll talk about this. Blufgan. Thank you for watching 43. The Color Filters Plugin: all right. So the partner we're going to install that would allow us to display the colors off. Actually, it's would be the color filters for welcome us plug in. And this is a very, very new plug in, as you can see that we only have about 2000 plus and stalls, but I have tested it on 80. Appears to be a really good plug in, So I've already gone ahead to install the plug in. As you can see, color filters for book Summersby elementos. Alright. So to create the colors, I'm gonna come down to products click on colors. This is the tab generated by the plug in Gonna click there. So let's go ahead and add very first color, which is gonna be black. No need to add the slug or parent just gonna click on the color button down here. Track that over there, click outside click add new color. Let's add, uh, green as well. Click on the box action at this old way. Hear clicking there. Click outside click. Add new color and let's add blue. Click on the blocks it struck this and here click there. Add new color. All right, So we have blue, green and black. Awesome. Now to add, these callers to our products will have to go into each individual product. And let's say, for example, let's go with the wood Ninja pink hoodie. I'm gonna click Edit right here and now over here to the right, you will see the colors available force to pick so I can go with it. We have black and we have green for that. Let's hope dates this product. Let's go back to our products. Let's go with a T shirt. Let's go with the ship. Your idea. Come down here. Let's go with Green only. Let's update. Let's go back. Let's speak one more product. Let's see. Let all see one ninja. Let's let's do this one. All right, So let's go with blue and green for this one. Let's update. All right, So now, to add the filter to our sidebar, I'm going to come down to appearance. Go to widgets and you should see the wall. Calmus. Our color filter. It is the one right here will come. Must call filters. So let me drag this all the way up here, and I'm just going to remove you can change. All right. So you have the layout for color and text or display only the color or only the text. I'm gonna go with color and text. Ah, limits. Um, just save this. Let me remove the filter by color. They don't need that anymore. Come back with fresh and how you can see we have the color filters showing up as they shoot . We have black, we have blue, we have green. So if I click on green right now, it only shows products that have the green color click on blue get only has products that have the the blue collar in them. So that's how to use the are the color filters for war commerce? A plug in I want that, you might notice, is that we don't even have the numbers showing next to the calls to indicate how many products actually have those colors so you can check the box right here, include the number off assigned products. So let's save that. Come back down here with fresh, and now you can see we have three picks of have the green color. One has blue collar. Owen has the black color.

WooCommerce Product Widgets: right on the strip of widgets, which I want to quickly touch on are the product widgets. Basically, we have the Kuchma's product categories widget, which is self explanatory. We have one for the product search, which would be a such books for products only. We have wounded this place, all the products, wonder displays to put a tags. We also have widgets for the recently viewed products, the top rated products. And then, of course, the recent reviews Israel. So these are all pretty much self explanatory. Our widgets. There's really no need for me to go deep into any of them. Belinda's dragged the product search box in here and see how this looks like. Let's drop that India. That's a search for our product. But let's just say such products instead, such products. All right, so let's save this and see how this looks like. Let's refresh the page. All right? So such a products, you can type in the pluck name in here. Let's go with Ah, would he no results. All right, let's see. Ah, sheep. Your idea. Okay, cool. So she provided we have we products. It actually works. So that's it for the default widgets which will come us provides you whenever you install the plug in. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 45. WooCommerce Shortcodes: one of the very best things about the welcome US plug in is the numerous amount of shut coats that come included with the plug in Now shut codes allows you to create in a can off page that you have in mind for who. Commerz. So let's say, for example, we wanted to create a page that showed only the recent products I could come down here to the left. Here we have the categories of short codes, and I could click on recent products. And in here we have an example off such a short code. Over here we have the away specifying the parameters with which we could use to create a short code. We can dictate how many products will like to show per page. Example here is set to 12. How many columns for Begin also order by date? Or have an ascending or descending order. So let me go ahead and copy of this example that's jump back to the site, let's at a new page and then just give the title here. We sent uh, products. I'm going to go ahead and pace to shut code. Let's just publish it and let's see how this looks like View the page and OK, so we do have 12 production up. Unfortunately, door. The styling is way off, as you can see, so there are two things you could do In such an instance, you could either change the theme to something else. All use CSS to make the style and look a lot better. Let's take a look at one more example. Let's see what we have here. We have product attributes as an example. Okay, let's click on that now. In here, we can list products with specific attributes. Shot colds in here we have the away once again, the parameters with which we could create a short code. Lendl's Go ahead and copy this example. And what I'm gonna do is to create a new page and let me just for the sake of this Ah, for the sake of an example of just say attributes at actually boot products. Okay, attribute products. Now let me paste. That should code. All right, so the perp attribute here is the color and the filter is black. So what is those? It's it's only going to display products that have black as an actual But so let me go ahead and publish the page. Let's view the page and see. Okay, so these are the only five products that have the black color as an attribute, Let's make some changes. Let's edit the page now in here I am going to add green so at a coma and then add green to it and see. Let's update the number of parts we have should be higher right now. So let me fresh. And now you can see we now have the additional police that have going showing up. But what if we only wanted to display? Let's say, for example, Onley three products per page. What I can do is to come back hit or example. Let's look for one example that has the per page short code. This is it right here, set to 12. Let me just copy this. Come back down here. Let's edit the page. I am going to create a space pace that let me to some backspace make sure the short code is a one line alright, super page. Let's set this to three instead, let's update and let's view the page, just refresh, and now you can see when we have three products that have both the black and green colors, and only three of them are showing up per page. So, really, with the short codes and with the perimeters that come with each one of them, you can create many, many different kinds of pages easily using the short codes. Let's come back up here. We have shot colds for the category, the categories the sale products are You could quit a page showcasing the best selling products who will enter the products and so on and so forth. So feel free to spend some time going over all these short codes. They have examples which make it even easier for you to understand what exactly is happening in there. So thank you very much for watching the video. That is actually a video over here showing you how to use the short codes from work almost themselves. You can watch that, but I can assure you my own video is better than then. They assume. Anyway, thank you for watching the video. I will see you in the next class. 46. The Order Delivery Date Plugin: over the next series of videos. We're going to be talking about some plug ins, some free plug ins that can enhance the functionality off your online store, and we're going to start off with the order delivery date for Woo Comus. Plug in and with this blood indoors is that it allows your customers to choose in order delivery. Date on the check out page so it offers some flexibility to your customers. Your customers can choose when they want you to deliver the products to them. So let's see how this plug it actually works. Good to come down here and I am going to install it. I have already downloaded the plug in, so let me just drag eight over here. Let's install it. Activate now. Once that's done, you would see this much message here that say's that the plugging needs to update your database. So let's click here to update it's been updated, and now over here you would have the tub here that say's order delivered, dated. This is where you can change the settings for the plug in. So let's click on it all right. The first things first we need to enable the delivery date Capture on the check out page, so check the box. And in here you can choose the days for delivery. I'm going to uncheck Sunday. We don't deliver on Sundays in my online store. Oh, it's a minimum delivery time in hours. Now, this is the minimum number of hours required to prepare for delivery. So you really want to give as much time as possible for you to be able to prepare the orders So you can either add 24 hours in a or 48 was gonna go with 48 hours and also the number of deaths to choose. You can offer your customers as many dates as possible for them to choose today for the delivery. So the default here is 30. He could change that to your own desires. You could make the film and a tree, but I would recommend not doing that because you don't really want to force your customers to choose a delivery date If they want to, they can. If they if they don't want to, they should also have the flexibility to not be able to choose the date. If they don't want to You could also add a maximum number of delivers that you can make per day. And in here you could also enable the default certain off orders in descending order by the plug in. So we'll check that. Let's save the sit ins and let's see how this actually works. Let me just drag my Firefox file over here. My Firefox bells about the limits attracted over here. All right, so let's see how this works. I am a new customer going to click on Happy Ninja. Let's aren't that to the cart. Let's view the court and let us check out. Preceded. Check out. All right, now down here is where we have the delivery dates. Choose a date and we have a message. You're saying with portray our best to deliver your order on the specified date. So now you can see that the date starts from the 27th. And that's because I am recording this video on the 25th of December 2016 Christmas Day and added 48 hours. So the next delivery date will be the 27th which is a Tuesday. So you could you could choose that, and ah, from that you would have the commence. It's saying, Hey, this customer has chosen to have the products delivered on the 27. So let's come back down here. Let's go to the appearance tab and let's see what we have over here. All right? So you can make the basic changes, like the language to date format field label. You could change the field. No text. This is where you could change that. And down in here, you could also change the placement off the check out page with it in the ship in section before the order notes or after orginal to the default is the blend section. And in here we have themes they could choose from to customize the look off the calendar. And, ah, let's just try. Let's see humanity. Okay, let's see how this looks like. Let's save the settings. Let me drugs back. Inhale. Let's refresh the page and let's see how this looks like she's a date. Okay, so it's OK. You've got several themes that you could choose film, so whatever you like again, so like that and finally over here, you could disable the delivery date field for virtual products, which I absolutely will. It makes no sense to you tell your customers when they for your cause me to tell you when they want to be able to download a visual product. Since the Internet is always there, you could also disable the delivered it for featured products in case you're featured. Products are like your higher end products, and you might want to take some time to really help prepare them for packaging and for shipping. So you may want visible that for future products as well. Just leave my sentence. And that's basically how the plug in works I hope you enjoys in the plug in. You should also know that they do have a pro version they will have to pay for. And naturally, the provision does have additional features, such as allowing the customer to select a delivery time. In addition to the delivered date. Choose from 24 different themes the same day and next day delivery allow, you know, at holidays or blackout Destiny calendar, and they've got some other cool features that will enhance the functionality of the plug in . So if you're interested, it's worth taking a look at it. Thank you for watching the video, and I'll see you in the next class 47. YITH WooCommerce Wishlist Plugin: one excellent plugging you could use to enhance the functionality off your online store is the youth. Would Comus wish list. Now what is blocking doors is that it allows your customers to create eight wish lists off the products that want to get from your online store. Now this can be greatly beneficial to you because right after your customers create that wish list, they can then go on to share that wish list on their social media platforms. So let's imagine, for example, ah, girl comes to your online store, she says. Certain products may be like a handbag or shoes that she really wants for Christmas. She can go on to add such products to how wish list. And then she can share that wish list. Or, let's say, Facebook as an example. And then her friends are boyfriend or husband or father model, you know. So when she knows, can see that list on a Facebook page and be like, OK, she wants this for Christmas. She wants that for Christmas. They can come to your store, then buy those products for the girl, so these can be greatly beneficial to you as a business. Let's see how how we can configure this plug in tow. Walk on our online store over here on the ad plug ins. Page and I used the keywords, youth and wish list. And this is the one we want. Youth will come a Swiss lists. I'm gonna go ahead to install it. And, of course, activate. Now, once that's activated, you will find the tab here. That's a Z youth plug ins. Click on wish list. All right, so now over here, we can begin to configure all the plug in by default. The enable all plug in features, boxers that have been sicked. And we have a default wish list title my wish list on cool store. So yours would be my wish list on. And then the name of your store should pop in next. Now, over here, we have a wish list page and by default. The plug in has already created a pitch called Wish List Force. So they come down to pages, click on all pages down here on the wish list. This page is that have included force, and you can see the shot cold over here, which is the short code it generates the actual wish list itself. So that's been credit for us. Let's come back here. The position You can change the position off the wish list. I'm just gonna live mine on after. Add to cart. We can reader to the court page. Ive at ticket button is clicked. Yes, of, um, of the product? Yes. And then over here you can change the default text in certain instances, if you wanted to show unit price. Yes. Show up to cart years showing stock. Yes. Ah, Show the date when users have added a puts the wish list. Uh, no, I'm just gonna leave this and check for now. And then over here we off course bond our customers to share. But they all wish list on as many social media platforms as possible because that means more marketing for So by default, all the major platforms have been ticked. And in here, you could change the social title to whatever you want. You could also add a certain social text which would pop in whenever your customers are sharing their wish list. But this would only work on Twitter and Pinterest. And he could also add an image that will always be used whenever your customers share the wish list on pincers specifically. So nothing really much to change here. Let's go ahead and click, Save changes. And over here on the colors we have where you could do some style and if you wanted to. But we'll drag my trusty Firefox over here and let's see how this plug in actually works. All right, so let's imagine that the first timer coming onto cool store, Let's go to shop. That's what we have, who are like a ninja. Schill. Oh, it's it's $35. Let's click on that. Okay, it's very expensive, but oh, there's a add to wish list button here. I'm gonna click that. Let's blast a wish list. Let's just refresh this page. Sorry about that. Okay, so over here, right now, we can see we have the Ninja Shalu. It's our product apparent. However, you would notice that there are no special social media platforms. There is no Facebook. There's no tweeting up interest. That is because we have not signed in. We're not an actual customer on this site. So guests customers who don't have an account cannot share. The Whistler is they would need to actually create an account. So let's go ahead and create an account. No, actually, I'm just gonna log in as the customer, which is me. We go ahead and look and all right, so let's go back to shop there. Was it ninja short? Okay, let's add to the wish list. Let's brush the West the wish list. All right, now, over here, you can now see the social media platforms, but let's go back. Ah, let me add one more. Let's go to number two. Let's see, What do we have here? Okay, like this logo. Let's click Vets. Let's add to the wish list as well. Now that's bells. A wish list. All right, so now we have these two products. So now it's time for me to look for someone on Facebook who would buy this. Put its for me. So I'm going to click on Facebook and now inhale. Of course, I will have to log in and then then be able to paste what I share my wish. I wish list on Facebook. So that's how the plug in works. I think it's a very nice nifty plugging that you can add. There is, of course, also a premium version that has Mawr features like a ah multiple, which list a private wish list. And, you know, you could also estimate costs as well and some other how useful features. So it is worth taking a look at the pimp Logan as well. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 48. YITH Zoom Magnifier Plugin: one major feature you're more than likely going to find in any decent online store will be the ability for your customers to zoom in on the product I want to buy so that they can take a closer look over here on Amazon. As an example, I have selected the Hyuga men's big tall houndstooth need quarters. Zip sweater. This is a mouthful of a name, but whatever. If I have a mouse over here right now, you can see that we can take a much closer look at the product. We can see the actual material itself. We can see the sleeves, the buttons, disease everything. So over here we can now decide whether or not we actually want this product. You can see again the same thing. Zoom in, zoom out. What have you now bear in mind that there is certain themes that you would install that you might use, whether for your own store that would already have this feature inbuilt already. However, if you're using a theme such as the mystic theme that doesn't have, ah, the zooming future, there is a plug in which we could use to create the same effect and a plug in is the youth . Will commerce Zoom Magnifier? So we're dropping back again to youth. They're the same guys who butters the wish list, Blufgan. So we're going to wait them once again for this awesome plug in. So let's quickly do that. It's come down to pull agains at new and that just gonna type in youth and then zoom. Okay, if welcome a zoom magnifier, let's install. That's let's activate the plug in. All right. So, again, I'm just gonna come down to youth plug ins and just right after wish list, we have these zoom magnifying. I'm gonna click on that. Okay? All right. So, general settings already this boxes have been ticked for us by default. There is really no need to change anything in here. The magnifier settings, we can change the with off the zoom books, the height as well. But I'm just gonna leave mine on auto. I think odor is just fine. Let the plug in decide for itself. Over here we have the image size, which would be the size of the images used within the magnifier box. I think 600 by 600 is just perfect. You could change yours, of course. 2 900 by 900. But typically you wanted to be off equal sides. Wanted to be a square, so it's always 400 by 450. But for 50 and so on and so forth, I did some books position, right. It's fine. There's some books position for mobile devices. Yes, You want this to always be inside for mobile devices? It looks better that way. The loading label is loaded. That's fine. Over here, you can change the opacity off the lens as well. You could add a blow effect to the small image on the mouse over if you wanted to, and also we have some slightest sentence. So by default the plug It would create a slider for the thumbnails that come, which, with each our individual products and we have some other boxes. In Year two activity responsive Slater to change them of items to show, and then circular Carcelle, Infinite Castle. I'm just gonna safe Ah, the changes. All right, let's see how this looks like. Let's jump down to our store. Let's go to shop. All right, let's start with the patients Ninja. Click on that and now in here. You can see right now that we cannot begin to zoom in to take a closer look at the product . Look at that. This is awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Are they something else we could do? Actually, don't in here. We could change the magnifier position from rights to inside as well. So let's see how this actually would look like. Let's save the changes. Let's go back to the patient ninja. Let's re first the page. And now you can zoom in to the pedal to take a closer look. Actually think that this might be better then having the zoom books appear to the light. I personally prefer this. I think this makes a lot more sense. Ah, let's take a look at another product. All right, so now he over here, we can see we have a slider. This is this letter that was created by default with the US um, plugging as you can see. So we click on an image we can now zoom and to take a closer look really nice. Nice logo. Okay. I'm not sure I particularly approve of the skull and the bones, but, you know, you might be someone who likes things like this. Ah, but yeah, that's it for the look of that nice. Ah, nice logo over there on the left sleeve. Anyway, that's how to use the youth. Will commas zoom magnifier once again? Thank you for watching. And as usual, I will see you the next class. 49. WooCommerce Menu Cart Plugin: one more plug and I wanted to talk about is the woke almost menu cat Plug in. And what this black indoors is that it adds the many cuts to our navigation bars. Now this is an extremely lightweight plug in, and even though the theme that we're currently using right now has the bottom over here on top, you might be using another theme. Or you might end up using a theme that doesn't have such a future by default and these plug indoors and excellent job off taking care off the problem. So let's go ahead and quickly install the plug in. I'm just copy this text. Let's come down here to the back end, add new and let me paste that its search for that. All right, so let's go ahead and install it and let's activate the plug in. All right, so down here in the back and for the plug ins, I can take a look at the plug in this sentence. Let's click on the settings. All right, so over here, right now, you can select whatever e commerce plugging you want to use with the plug in. So besides will comers, it also walks with a gentle Shopify and other e commerce plug ins. Now in here, you could choose whatever menus that you like to display the caught in. So, really, how one many, which is the main menu. But if if I had, like a menu in the Footer in menu in the sidebar or the custom menus, I could also add the cut to such navigations as well, which is another excellent benefit of this particular plug in. So let me just choose Main menu are always display the card, even if it's empty. Nope. Let's Onley this Billy Carter banned items air in it. All right in here, you could vote. You actually can choose any of these other icons. Only I can you have is the default won? The pro version would allow you to choose all the I can't represent the caught and also make changes to like You know what? I don't want to display the cart contents and the menu, fly out or change the number of products to display in the flat and so on and so forth in here. What would you like to display in the menu? The items on Lee, the price on Lee or both price and items. Let's go with both price and items. And then, of course, you can change the alignment. I'm just gonna leave that as it is. Let me just save changes and let's take a look. Let's see how this looks like. All right, let's let's refresh the page once again. All right? So we're not simply cut because, of course, are caught is empty. So let's go ahead and add some products. Let's go with the happy Ninja. That's hard to the court. And now in here. We now have the cut popping up. One item at $18. Let us choose. This guy Here is well off the cart. Two items at $53 and let's add one more ought to cut. Okay. I'm sorry. This is available product.

MaxMind GeoIP Database: during the beginning of this course, when I was introducing you to welcome us and the different tabs we torched briefly on the system status page. And I also very briefly mentioned about the Max mind GOP database, which is a database that can help you with tasks such as identity, location for detection, are targeting and so on and so forth. Now, in the future, you might end up in stolen a plug in that would require the use off such a database. So it's always a good idea to ensure that everything on your system status page is green, including the maximum July P database. So in this video, I'm going to quickly show you how you can fix this issue. If you have it over here, I'm simply going to copy this link down here. I'm going to copy that, and I'm going to open up in a new page. Now I'm going to jump over here to downloads and then in here you would see that that obeys called Julie Country next to which you will see the Donald Link for binary slash g zip. Simply click on download, and then you would have the A zip fold up all you would have to use to extract the file and deceitful that the foul should be. A file called I was right now it's called Geo I p daughter de a. T. That is the name of the file.

She'll be in the form off a banner, as you can see at the very top here on Jack Threads it Cesar Free shipping both ways. Always never paid to try stuff on my theme shop where you can buy things and plug ins also has a similar setting over here. They have a problem going on. It saves. Get any what press theme? A plug in for just $19 Christmas discount by for $19. Limited time. Cool. So we should be able to create something like this to on our own cool store. And how we're going to do this is by using a plug in called the WP notification Boss. Plugging from this people here at my theme shop so you can go ahead and download the plug in. It's free. All you would have to do is to create an account with them. Now, I have already downloaded the plug in, so I'm just gonna drag that over here. Let's install that and Let's go ahead and activate the plug in. All right? So don't. Here we now have the tab. I'm going to add a new notification bar, so let this one be. Let's go with Christmas 2016. Uh, bone us. All right. So in here, we could either choose a tuggle clothes or no button. I'm gonna go the Tuggle. You could change the with as well.

I'm going to say gets okay. Already have the takes down there gets except isn't off all our products. Limited time only, and full the link text. I'm just going to add a hash tag and you have a lot just a hashtag for now. For the style, you could change the background. Kahlo, the text caller, the font size and so on and so forth. Now for conditions, it will be rather annoying if on every single page our customers saw the message. You know you could do that if you wanted to, But you could also choose to specify the location where you would like to display the banner. So let's just go with the home page on Lee. I can click on people at the bar, and now you can see how it's going to look like pretty awesome. Let's go ahead and publish the notification bar. And now let's visit our store. And now you can see the idea gets 60% off all our products. I have a good to shop. You can see right now that the bar no longer is there. But if I go back home, it's right there. So this is how you can create banners for your online stone. Let your customers and first timers know that you're running are some sort of improvement, promotion or sell. So that's it for the site.

And this is the site where we're going to build our digital stop. As you can see, this is a very fresh installation off what press with the letters. What press theme, which is 2017 and I already changed the name of the site from my block to the digital store , added the tagline. The best source for digital puts online. I also changed the Pima links as well, from the plane sentenced to the post name settings. So that's all I have done. So I invited to go ahead and set up your own website for practice.

The Easy Digital Downloads (EDD) Plugin: when it comes to selling digital products online. The absolute best plug in with which you could do this is the easy digital downloads Plug in.

That will extend the functionality off the plug in, As you can see, very similar to will commas. We have gateways we have for counting. We have for email, marketing and so on and so forth. So this is a very robust plug in that you can't improve on simply by installing and activating set in extensions or plug ins. They also have documentation as well, and also provide support if you buy any off their premium products. Now I want to recommend to you there to create an account with them, simply click on it. We just don't know account. And the reason why you wanted to do this is because before you can download many off there extensions, you would need to have an account with them. So go ahead and your user name your email password register. And when you do that, you will receive an email like this from easy digital downloads with your user name and a password that's automatically generated for you. So I already have an account with them. Something's going to look in or capes over here. We have my purchase history. I already downloaded a theme from them, and that's why I have the record over here. But to download the easy that is a Donald simply click on download over here, and then you would have the plug in waiting here being downloaded. So let me just ah, go to the back and over here and let's install the plug in at new upload Miodrag lease over here. Install. Okay, let's activate the plug in. All right, cool. So easy that Donald has now been installed on our site and this would be the very first pitch that you should see where you have some few tips on how you can create products and download files, and so on and so forth.

Because it's is here for me. So once you've installed and activated E d. D, you would find the tab of over here that says Downloads. So from here you can begin to add new downloads, which will be like adding new products and welcome s over here. We can add categories for the digital products so we could add categories like a books, video files or the files, and so on and so forth. We have tags. We have payment history as well, where you can keep track of people who have paid payments that filled payments up all the funded and so on and so forth. Over here, we have customers as well, where you can keep track off their purchases, how much they've spent their primary, even as well. Our discount codes, which would be like coupons and will calm s. We have reports as well where you can keep track off your earnings and sales. Using statistics, we have the general settings which will begin to tackle from the very next video. And of course, we have tools where you can add band emails if you wanted to, you could also restore store and INS and sales do physically reset all your information on your site from this particular section. Over here we have the A P I keys as well, which is a little bit advanced for are the scope of this course. But if you wanted to generate a P I keys this Israeli, you will do them. We have a tablet for the system information, which might be useful if you're trying to troubleshoot an issue with easy digital downloads . Sometimes the developers will ask you to provide this sort of information and any. Of course, you can always import and exports are files from Excel and and so on and so forth. And of course, we have extensions just like it woke. Thomas. We have extensions for payment gateways and marketing, and so on and so forth, and this is where you would find a bunch of them. So join me in the very next class real, who begin to analyze the general settings for easy digital. Donald's Thank you for watching 57. EDD General Settings: All right, So let's talk about the general settings for E. D. D. And you might have noticed this message at the very top here that say's allow ET to track plug in use age blah blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Now this is entirely up to you. I have a feeling that they want to keep track of how the customers use the A plug in, so there's an incentive over there you can get 20% discount. So it's really up to you to decide with a note you want them to be able to track how you're using to plug in. I am just gonna click, Do not allow. All right. So general settings Now when we installed and activated the Utd plug in just like welcome as we had some pages created Force automatically we have the check out page and on the check out, we have the purchase conformation purchase history in the transaction field pages. So in here we could change the default pages if you wanted to, but I don't see any reason why we need to do that. As you can see, the pages are self explanatory. This is the check out page where buyers will be complete, their purchases put. His conformation is the Patriot Bears ascent after completing the purchases and so on and so forth. Art. Now over here, if we have customers who have created in the an account on our store, we could redirect them to a certain page after they log in. Now, in here, we could choose. Let's just go with purchase history as the page where they will be with director to once they look in now in here again, just like will come as we could change the base country could choose are based country. Rather, I'm gonna go with the United States, and this time I am going to switch from Alabama to how let's a let's go aware of Maryland? No, I now a track sentence allowed users to track it again. This is the same ah, box that they could take to allow them to keep track of how your isn't a plug in. But we're not going to do that. I'm just gonna click if changes and now in here for currency settings, you could change your currency from dollars to the Hungarian forint or the Danish krone and so on and so forth. You could change the currency position and customize your separators as well. And finally we have the A p I settings, which again is going to be a little bit advanced for the scoop off this course. But if you know what a P I settings are and you wanted to get your keys, this is where you can generate a P I keys from, and they also have a documentation. Here. You can read more about the AP eyes and how you can get them. So that's it for the general settings. Join me the next class. We will talk about the emails and styles sentence. Thank you for watching. 58. EDD Email, Styles Settings: just like in woo commas, you could customise the kinds of emails that your clients receive whenever they make a purchase on your store. And in here we have two different templates. We have the default template, and then we have the no template plain text only. So over here we could click a preview to see how this is gonna look like with the default template. And I could come back down here changes to no template. That's safe, the changes. And then in here I could preview how it's gonna look like and this does not look good. Handle. This is this is ugly, So I'm just gonna change his back. Toothy default templates save my changes. And in here you could also send a test email so your admin email would receive the test email. You could also add a logo, and Heather would appear at the top of the purchase with C e mails. All right, so over here for the purchase visits, you could customise the message or the emails that your clients receive whenever they buy a product from your store. You could change the name the from email changed the subject and heading and now in here, you could customise the actual message itself that your customers will receive Down here we have shut codes that you could use to customize this particular message. So if I wanted to add an extra piece of information like Ah, you but this product on and I wanted to add the date I could use the shot good over here date. They could just copy this and then pays that over here and in the email. The client will see this message, but it's productive on. And then the date that they bought the product so you could customise the message using all these short codes over here, let's see if the changes and we also have new sale notifications so that this would be the email that you will receive whenever anyone makes a purchase on your store. And you could also customize the methodology, receive use in the short calls in here as well. You could change the email where notifications will be sent to, and you could also disable at me notifications. If too many people are buying too many products on your store in one single day, there will be a nice problem to have. So let me just see if my changes and let's jump down to styles where you could style how you're the General Stallion for e. D. D. We have the default bottom style from bottom to plain text and also the default button. College could change that to whatever color you wanted to. Or you could just disable styling in general with E d. D. So that's it for the emails and stale in settings. Germany. The next class we will talk about taxes. 59. EDD Tax Settings : All right, let's talk about everyone's favorite topic, which is Texas. And in here. You could change the tax settings for your online store. And, of course, there's depends heavily on whether or more to you want to charge taxes for meal customers. But in here you could take the box to enable taxes on purchases. And then in here you could add the regions from which you want to change a specific amount of Tax four and in here for the full back tax rate. This would be the default a taxi. They will be applied to customers whose regions do not fall under the regions that you specified Over here. Now, in here, we have the documentation. When you click on this link over here, we have the documentation in here that would explain to you more on how to set up taxes for your online store. You could be that. And now in here could also add with or not you want to enter the prices inclusive of tax or exclusive off tax, and also you could display the taxpayer on prices as well. Please know that some countries require a notice when product prices include tax so be sure to find out whether or not your country requires that or not. And, of course, display doing. Check out you could exclude tax, or you could include attacks when your customers are checking out. I personally, I'm not gonna be charging taxes for my clients. I'm just going to disable that. But again, if you want to old, invite you to spend some time to go through over the tax settings and, um, configure all these page to your own certain, So that's it for the tax settings on their E d d. Join me in the very next last, where we'll talk about the missile annual settings and give a fortune. 60. EDD Misc Settings: All right, so let's talk about the missile Nual settings for e. D. D. Now in here. By default, Ajax has already been enabled. And if you don't know what Ajax is, Ajax with respect to E. D. D. Allows customers to be able to make changes to their court, either by removing items or by adding items without the page will load in. So it is a very useful piece of technology, which I believe you would want on your site. I'm going to live this box checked now. We could also immediately redirect customers after they add an item to the court. I personally think this is a bad idea because I want my customers to buy as many products as possible. I want them to feel they're caught with as many places as possible as possible before they go to the check out page. If you take this box, it's like you're telling them that Oh, you can only push is one product and you have to leave right after you put it on. Put it so personally, I think this is a bad idea. I'm going to live this on checked allow item quantities to be changed. Yes. Remove data on on install. So if you ever decide to uninstall e d. D from your site, if you check this box, all the data that's been created using e. D. D. Will also be wiped off. So that's up to you to decide. I'm going to live the box on checked. Let's save changes. Let's go to the check out settings now in here. We could enforce SSL on Check out Yes, because we want to protect the data off our customers now. You could also require that users be locked in before they can purchase files. I'm going to live this on checked because there might be some customers who will come to your store and they may want to buy a product, and they're already ready to bring out a credit card. And then, if you'd say, Hey, you have to be locked in before you can make this purchase, it might I don't know. It might turn them off. So I am going to live this box unchecked. You could show the register log inform on the check out page. That's what we want. So I'm going to display both registration and Logan forms on the check out page for non look in users. Hopefully there might be enticed to register multiple discounts. Allow customers to use multiple discounts on the simper chase. Sure, why not? And it will cost saving. So what this does is if your customers have added several plucks to the cart and they need to leave if they can make the party's at that point, if you check this box, they would be able to save the link to their car so they can always come back after some time and also be able to view all the items in the cotton and make the purchase. I think it's a good idea. I'm going to check the box. Save changes now in here for the bottom text. You could change the default text for all these buttons. File downloads defended. Donald Method out. We're coming to you to keep this on forced. There is another one called every direct. However, not all methods work on all servers. So first is the most consistent Delic method available on most Web service. All recommended to leave it on First, you could set a file download limit as well, and also a link exploration. And you could also disable readouts if you wanted to. I'm just save my changes in here That's jumped onto the account settings now in here. You could also enable the SK you entry for your products. If you wanted to, you could check this box. Trainable. Sequential order numbers a swell. All this is basically accounting. It's up to you. I don't know what your style is. So all this sentence he is basically up to you to customize how you want your account into walk. He could add prefix you could at the post fix as well. And he could also change the sequential starting number as well. And last panelas, we have the terms of agreement. So if you wanted your customers to agree to some sort of terms before they can make purchases on your side, this is exactly where you would add the text to you. Check the box and you will add your text that your customers would have to agree to your terms and conditions before they can buy or purchase a poet. And I believe that it could be very useful. You could put that in limitations like, hey, you know, if you if you use this product for more than 30 days, then you can't request for a We found, you know, stuff like that. This is where you could add such our terms to. So that's it for the miscellaneous settings for e d. D. We're not going to talk about the payment gateways for now. We will talk about this later. So that's it for the general settings for e D D. We'll see you in the next class. Thank you for watching. 61. How to Create a Simple Digital Product: all right. So just us in welcomes we have products that you create with e d D. You create downloads download represent the digital products that you can sell to your customers. And what I'm going to do in this video is to show you how to create a simple digital product. There are different types of products that we can create, but in this video is specifically taking a look at how we could sell a simple digital product. So I'm gonna come down here to download. I'm gonna click on Add New, But before we even click, add new. Let's go ahead and create some categories for our downloads. Let's start off with the E books. Everyone loves your book sore than to add that as a category. Let's add, uh, ordeal files as well. Audiophiles. Let's add videos. Ah, let's add images as well. And let's add bundles. We're going to talk about bundled. Put it very soon. Let's add that. All right, so we got five different categories. Now let's jump down to add new. All right, so in here we're going to add the name off download, which is going to be What's the book right now, Let me jump down here to my media, All right? So I do have a pdf and age IPIC image that I already uploaded. And if you're wondering how or where I got all this kind of image form its own can va and even a familiar we can value should be. It's an excellent place where you could design are different kinds of graphics, for whether it's off for social media or for PDS off for videos and so on and so forth. And if you are a member off my YouTube channel, you can already tell that this is where I could. Eight. The thumbnails on my videos. As you can see so cynical, click on more, and then in here you'd have the different kinds off our designs that you can create. So simply come down here to blogging and e books and then click on the image. And then in here you would have you can see. Right now this is the one I just created Search for an endless summer. Just click on the image, and then you can drag the image in here, simply changed the text and click download, and you're good to go. So that's how I got my image. And I will be getting more images from Canada. All right, so let's jump back. So it's such full An endless winter. That's the name of the download. So let me take that down. Search for and and less winter. All right, so for the text, I'm just going to drag my limits. Um, site over. Halem, just copy some sample text. Pays that in here for the description. All right, so no, down here, we have the price. And so I'm going to place. This adds nine 99. We'll talk about available price and very soon. All right, so in here, we're going to add the file. So I'm going to click on upload a file, Let me go to my media library, and I'm going to select the pdf, which is actually just a nem T pdf book. There's nothing in it and said download. So does the file name such fun? Endless winter. Now, over here to the word I'm going to select e books. And for the tags Ah, we can go with ah e book. Let's go with novel. And ah, was just add vet. All right, so down here you can set restrictions for the file download limit. You could also choose to disable the automatic output off the purchase button. But if you disable this, you don't have to use this shot could right here to display the purchase bottom for your customers to click on Let's set the Donald image, which is going to be this gym pick image. Let's sit that and oh, righty, that's That's it. Let's click publish, and we can view the download. Let's see how it looks like. And Diego such fun, endless winter. And down here you can see we have the title. We have the description, and then we have the button to purchase the product. And of course, this is the big image right here. Off course. This looks really bad. It doesn't look for mounted a toll, but that's because we're still using 2017 theme. All they're concerned about right now is creating downloads will talk about the design later, but this has been how to create a simple digital product with E d. D. Thank you for watching, and of course, that will see you in the next class 62. Creating a Variable Digital Product: all right, so the next download we're going to create is going to be a variable digital product. And with a variable digital put it, you can sell different versions off the same product. Let's go ahead and create an audio file. In this case, let's add the name, which is going to be the last of us. Ah, soundtrack. And if you don't know the last of us, it is an excellent video game. It's one of my favorite video games of all time. I'm just go ahead and pays to my description in here over him. Could you select files? Let's quickly add some tags. Ah, video games, soundtrack soundtrack. Let's add that. Okay, now down here for the present options, we can check the enable variable price in now. What this does is when you check this. You now have the option of creating different formats of different versions off the same file, the same product that you're selling. So let's go with the very first version. Let's go with the MP sweet format. All right, let's make this one 299 and then we can add a new price and let's go with the MP four format, maybe. And before format, Let's make this one a little expensive. But that 3 99 and all right, so we have two different versions the MP three format and then the MP four format. Now, in here, I am going to upload the file. I do have a sample audio for all that. I have some things going to insert that as the download. Now in here, we have something called the Price Assignment where you could assigned different downs to specific or formats. So in this case, we could assign this particular version to be the empathy MP three format. And then for the MP for four months, you can simply add a new file, and then they're saying debts to the MP four format. But I'm just gonna live this for all. And I forgot to mention in the last video you can actually add notes to your customer whenever they download the product. In this case, I could say something like, uh, thank you. I hope you enjoy listening, Teoh the soundtrack. So you could add something like this and your customer would deceive this when they download the file. All right, so let's set the dollar image. I have a very good image over here for the last of us. And I think we're good to go. Let's just go ahead and Ah, publish this. All right, so let's view the download and see what we have. It's the last of us, and now in here, you can see we can select either the MP three format or the MP four format. Now, we can also enable multi option purchase mode where our customers can buy multiple different versions off the same file. So in this case right now, if I check this box in here right now and click update our course, my right now would be able to add both formats to he's or hard car. So that's how to create our variable products using the easy digital downloads. Plug in. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 63. The Checkout Process: all right. So we've successfully created different kinds off digital downloads on online store. But we haven't actually witnessed the process by which a customer comes in, select one of these products and then proceeds to pay and then download the product. So for the purposes of this video, I am going to show you the process. And I have also made the bundle that has the PDF and the CD have made it free. So it's now $0. So I am going to drag my Firefox browser in here and pretend that a new customer So I come in here and I'm going to select the free bundle. I'm gonna click on per chase. Let's no go to the check out page and all right, so in here, I'll have to provide my email address We have. The city will be sent to provide my first name as well, Alex. And in here I can create an account which is optional. And now in here we do have the terms of agreement. I don't know if you recall this, but I actually went ahead to add some agreement down here. Let's go to downloads. Let's go to settings miscellaneous terms of agreement. All right, so I just did this very quickly. I added some limits on text and added the label police agree to the terms just to show you how it's going to look like. So that's what we have over here. Ah, please agree to the terms. Now, if I don't check this box and I click free download, you can see Right now, the ever message pops out saying you must agree to the terms of use. All right, so I'm going to agree. And because this is a essentially a free, productive costs nothing. We have the free download button here probable automatically, something to click free download. And OK, so thank you for your purchase. We have the products in which I can actually download from this particular page. But what I want to do is to show you the email that I've received, and it's right here. As you can see, it pushes received. Dear Alex, thank you for your purchase. Please click on the links below $2 files and now in here I can click on the travel guide and I have my MP $3 in down there and I can click on the travel guide here for the E book, and you can see it's been diluted down there. So this is the typical process for a customer commenting and pain for your product and downloading the product. Online store. I know we haven't talked about payment gateways yet. We'll get to that. But I just wanted to show you the general process. Have it works and how the customer would would would receive e mails from the online store . So thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 64. The Downloads and Category Pages: All right, so on. Like who? Commas. When you install the easy digital downloads plug in. It's not going to create a default page where you can view all the downloads that you've created. So we are going to have to create this page in manually. And in order to do this will have to make use off a shot court called downloads. Once we add the shot, go to any page, we would be able to display all the dollars that we have available. So I'm just going to go ahead and copy this short code. Let's come down to the back end. Let's add a new page and let's name that page downloads Now, before you paste the shortcut. All the commander, you switch the editor from visual to text, and the reason is because sometimes when you paste short codes individual mode, what purse tends to add some called some code in the back end, and that might screw up the short code. So mistresses to text. I'm going to pace that downloads and let's go ahead and publish the page and let's view the page and all right, so you can see we have our travel Guide bundle. We have the Travel Guide CD, the Travel Guide E Book, the last of her soundtrack and, of course, the greatest novel of all time. Search for an Endless Winter by Alexander owning. All right, so that's it for the downloads page. Let's go ahead and also create a separate pages for the different categories. There will be have recall that we do have. What is that? We have about five different categories off downloads. Yep, we have audio files, bundles, abebooks, images, videos. So let's go ahead and see how we can create separate pages for each one of these categories . Ah, let's step with the one for audio files. Let's come down. Let's add new audio and I'm going to paste the shut code. Now they're always how we can customize the downloads button to do not. The Donald shot could excuse me to show specific categories. Here is an example. Over here, where we always have to do is to add either the i d. All the slugs for the category. So we consider example right here. It's SEZs. Downloads category equals 14. So you know what? I'm just gonna copy this entire line. I'm just copy that. Comb back down here to a new page that's paste that in here, and I'm going to remove all this. We don't need that. I mean, at my clothes and courts. All right, so we have to get the i d. For the audio category. So to get that, I'm gonna hover over all your files. And then down here, we can see that the I d equals sweet. So I'm going to switch this to three and let's publish the page on Let's see what we have view the page. And there you go. We have the Travel Guide CD, and we have the loss of a soundtrack all showing up on our audio page. Okay, We could also rather than using the i d. We could also use just the name, which would be audio files, so I could come back down here. We moved this and then taping audio files. Let's update that let's view the page again, and we still have the same audio file. So let's go ahead and do one more for the e books. The I D down here is, too. So let me go ahead and add a new page. Let's make that one e books. Okay, let's just come back down here. Copy this short code over again. They just base that and the category was to I believe it was, too. Let's Ah, let's publish that. Let's view the page. And there you go. We have the travel guide and we have the search full and endless winter. So that's how to create eight separate pages for the individual categories that we have. I want to give you a very small Simon. Go ahead and create eight Had the order pages for the rest of the categories that we have so that in total will have full new pages. 14 videos, one for images and one more for the bundles will have five. Excuse me five different categories. So quit pages for bundles, images and videos and join me at the next class. Well, we'll take a look at how we can for the customize the downloads should code. Thank you for watching 65. Customizing the Downloads Page: All right. So you've successfully created are downloads Page and we have downloads showing up. However, I cut into the documentation, we can customize the downloads short coat, to show specific information or to hide specific information. Now, before we do this, I need to tell you something. Okay? I just discovered something new about the e d. D. Plugging. And it's kind of amazing how, despite the fact that I've been working with this plug in for a very long time, I still ended up linen something very new about it. And here's the thing. Before I started to be caught in this video, I was attempting to customize the Donald short code I was trying to displace in the information, I was trying to customize the thumbnails and so on and so forth, and none of it was working on the downloads page. None of it was working. I was like, Why isn't this working? So it turns out that after I did some research and did some experimentation, it turns out that the page if you have a page titled Downloads Okay on your online store, no amount of customization is going to walk with the download short code and the business because the E d D plug it has reserved has reserved any page with the title called Downloads Toe. Always show just the downloads without any custom is ations. In fact, take a look at this. If I go ahead and trash this page, okay? I'm gonna go ahead, trash that Donald speech completely so that the peace doesn't exist anymore on our site. Take a look at this. Them closes. Page, let me go back to the digital store. Let me refresh if I claim even do a hard refresh. If I come here right now and again, do afford slash downloads. Take a look at that and I could get into you. This is not cash in working. I've disabled all the cash in, even if you don't have a page called downloads. If anyone goes to your your bill and puts the Ford Slash downloads and then afford slash, it will automatically generate a page with all the products that you have on your online store. And that is because the plug in automatically reserves this U r l ending to always display the products that you have in your online store. And when I went back to take a look at some of the sites that have walked with the way I actually used the entity plug in. It turns out that I have never, never, ever named any one of the pages downloads. It's always been files are products of the depository. I have reused different names apart from download. So it's kind of interesting that I chose to use the name down lutes for for the page on during this course. So it's something that really caught me by surprise. I wasn't expecting this, but we all learn something new every day. So what I'm gonna do right now is to create a new page, okay? And that's name that page, the repository page. So this would be the page. They'll go report repository. So this would be the pedo display all files. OK, so let's do that Instead, let me just copy the show, the downloads, short code text. Let's pace that in here. Let's publish the page. Let's view the page. Okay, fine. Cool. Right now. So you can see right now that the page now looks slightly different. As you can see right now, we have our three columns and we have Yeah, we have three columns with all the production up, as opposed to the sort of the the page with the side bar that we had with the initial of downloads page. Now there isn't a white. This is for my two. This way is because it says over here that when you add the download shut cold, this will output the downloads in a three column grid with thumbnails if present a theta would accept and a purchase button that says odd to caught. So that's what we have over here, as you can see, as opposed to this page where we had the initial downloads now one other way. How you can tell whether or not a page has been reserved by a plug in is you would not be able to edit the page. Take a look of this with Repository. We have the edit page link, however, with the downloads page. We don't have the link over this, So I believe this is because this particular page again has been reserved by the plugging. You can't edit this patient matter what you do. All right, so that's something useful that we've learned. But let's now get down to the business of customizing the downloads. Short code. All right, so what do we have? We can specify categories. We've done that already. We can specify tags as well, but take a look at this. We have the excerpt. We have full content. We can change the number of columns as well. Thumbnails. All right, so let's do something over here. Let's perform an experiment. What I'm going to do is to come back down here to the repository. Let's click. Edit page. Let's go with Let's say film nails equals Let's go with false Let's update the page. Let's view the page and you can see Right now the thumbnails are gone. All right, let's go back. What else can be customized down here? It say's the thumbnails. Permata requires either true or false. So by default it's going to be true. Begin changed to force, which we just did, are we can order by it says the order, by permitting, accepts the foreign options. We have the price. We have the idea. Random posed a title. Let's go with random. So let's come back down here. Let me remove the thumbnails. I like seeing my thumbnails. So let's go with order by equals. And let's type in, uh, random or the by random. Let's update the page. Let's view the page. All right, so what do we have here? We first will have the Travel Guide CD. We had a loss of four soundtrack and then the Travel Guide E book. Let's refresh the page, and now you can see it's shifted. Now we have a travel guide Bundle 27. Tension Up First, let's refresh again and again and again so you can see right now that the plug in automatically van demises the display off the products that we have. Ah, what else can we customize in here? Number of columns. We can specify the number off dollars we want to show and the number of columns. Let's do this. Let me couple this short code. Come back down here, edit the page. Let's change this to Donald Somebody's 15 columns. Let's go with two columns instead, updates via the page. All right, so they can see where now displaying the dollars into columns. So basically you can customize how you want your Donald space to look like using all this shot calls that we have over here and now down here on this page is well, where we have short codes. You We have more examples off the difficulties of short codes that you can use on your site . I will attach the link to this page in the resources links so you can take a look and read more. But that's it for customizing are short codes. Over There are the Hollows page now called Repository. Thank you for watching. And as usual, I will see you in the next class. 66. PayPal Payment Gateway: just like with Thomas E. D. D. Also has payment gateways. And just like in welcome us, we can also create sandbox or test environments with which we can test whether or not payments are actually working before we begin to accept real payments from real customers. So what we're going to do in this video is we're going to experiment using PayPal now I'm him. You on my get Gateway Settings page, I'm going to enable the testimony, first of all, and now in here for the payment gateways, I'm going to check PayPal, standard the default get. We should be people standard in here, I can add I cones for the accepted payment methods. So let's just go with paper towel and that's a visa. Let's save that now for people standard on.

Now, if you have no idea what these are, then you must have skipped the section in blue commas where I taught you how to Kuwait Test account. So please, if you didn't watch that section, please go ahead and watch the section and create. You'll text test accounts. So I'm going to paste the email address in here for my test accounts, and I'm going to save my changes. Oh, it's allowed. Let's see how the process actually works. I'm going to drag my trusty Firefox in here and let's see what we have. Let's pretend like I made New customer was coming in in here for the very first time and 1000 through. And I see all the last of our soundtrack. This is a moves in. Let me go ahead and punches that. Let's check out. All right, so now in here, we can see we have the visa and people, Aikens, I am going to provide my personal information. Ah, first name I'm going to use Bob. Don't ask me why I'm using Bob. I just want to use something different. And it's Bob, So All right, Bob is my user name. I'm going to add Ah, password. Let's confirm password again. And I'm going to agree to the terms as I don't have any other option and local paper chase . And come on, come on. 00 I d all right. So you can see right now we've been redirected to the sandbox and Vermont. So I'm just gonna go ahead and add my password for the test account. Let's look in and come on. Authenticate the information. All right, So I here, I'm going to click on pay now. And that's known Alexander, you just completed your payment course so I can now click on the digital store. And from here, I can go back to direct to the purchase page. And this is the page. My visit page. Wake and see my payment records, the total, the date and all that cool stuff. And it can also download the file down here as well. All right, so let's go ahead right now. And I'm going to open up the test account full people. And as you can see right now, the payment has It was coming from Alexander. And you can see the amount $2. 99. So this proves that the test payments actually work. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Okay. All right. Now, before I go, if you wanted to process our PayPal payments, we've veen inside of your website rather than are going to PayPal toe to process the payment, you are going to need to provide all these conditions in here you live FBI user name, a pay password, signature, and so on and so forth. And all these can be obtained from a people people account. They do have the instructions in here on how you can get all those information. It's almost the same process as creating son books, test accounts. It's just different data that's needed. And one more thing to Sometimes you might be having trouble how people may be having trouble marking some of your payments as complete. And they do have a documentation explaining that under the a few cues, and if you're having that issue, you can read this recommendation. In here, there are several common reasons why are, Even when payments have been processed, it might still be s pending. These are all the possible issues. So if in the future you decide to begin processing PayPal payments on your website and for some reason people isn't marking, the payments is complete. You can always come down in here, and we'd more or just simply disable the papal I p and verification in here. So that's it. Full of the papal Join me the next class. Well, we'll take a look at the default test gateway for e d. D. Thank you for watching 67. Testing the Payment Gateway: on my back and let's take a look at the test payment gateway that comes with E. D. D. By default concerned, check PayPal Standard and change the default gateway to test payment. And let's just go ahead and add All icons were accepted payment. Why not safe changes And all right, So I'm going to drag my Firefox browser in here, and Mr Bob is back. And he would like to put trays these such phone enders winter. And he's going to put she's four books because it's an excellent excellent novel by Alexander only semantically Quimper Chase and let's go to the check out page. Okay, so that's 39 96. I'm going to agree, and I'm just gonna click on Purchase. I dare on the spot. And as you can see right now that we didn't go to PayPal, they didn't go to any external site. And that's because we are using the default test payment gateway that comes with e. D. D. You would notic
