According to an article on Forbes magazine, e-commerce sales are expected to surpass the trillion dollar mark by 2020. As more people are embracing e-commerce, businesses have taken to selling their services and products online as well. If you are such an individual or business looking to sell your products online via an e-commerce store and are looking to learn how to create such a store, then you have come to the right place. 

The course is divided into 3 main parts plus an introductory section where you will learn how to setup a sub domain of your existing website and how to incorporate SSL encryption to greatly enhance the security of your online store. 

Curriculum Overview:

PART 1 - WooCommerce Section

In the first part, we will build a store that sells clothes and music albums using one of the most powerful and popular e-commerce plugins known as WooCommerce. 

With WooCommerce, you will learn how to do the following:

  • Create simple, grouped, variable and affiliate products
  • Set up taxes
  • Configure shipping options
  • Set up payment gateways like PayPal and Stripe to accept payments
  • Managing orders and refunds
  • Managing coupons

Every online store requires a decent design, structure and efficient navigation system which is why you will learn about the different types of WordPress themes you could use to design your online store. 

You will also learn how to use an extremely powerful mega menu plugin 'WR MEGA MENU' to design and create beautiful menus to ensure that your customers can quickly and easily find the products they want to buy in your store.

We will cover a very important aspect of E-Commerce - the processing of payments and refunds. You will learn how to install and setup different payment systems in your store such as PayPal and Stripe payments. You will learn about 'sandbox' environments that would allow you to test the entire transaction process on your website without using any actual money. 

We will also cover how to manage orders, refunds, coupons and customer accounts as well.

One of the most advantageous features of WooCommerce is the ability to extend its functionality and design by numerous plugins available. We will round up part 1 by analyzing a few of these plugins and see how they can be used to improve the overall functionality of your e-commerce store. 

We will cover how to use the following plugins:

  • WooCommerce Price Filter Widget
  • Layered Nav Filtered Widget
  • Color Filters Plugin
  • WooCommerece Product Widgets
  • WooCommerce Shortcodes Plugin
  • Ordery Delivery Date Plugin
  • YITH WooCommerce Wishlist Plugin
  • and much much more

By the end of this section, you will have learned enough to be able to build and manage your very own WooCommerce store.

"Alex delivers a well organized tutorial with clear and easy to understand steps. You will not be disappointed in the purchase of this course." -- Jacob Johnson

PART 2 - Virtual Store Section

If you are looking to build a virtual store that sells downloadable products like music files, images and e-books then you are going to love this section.

I will show you how to build the store using the Easy Digital Downloads plugin. 

The EDD plugin is one of the very best plugins for building virtual stores and you will learn how to use it to its maximum abilities.

You will learn how to how to create bundled virtual products and how to manage downloads from your customers.

PART 3 - BUILD A MEMBERSHIP SITE

Finally in part 3, you will learn how to build a membership site. The membership site we shall be building is a website that teaches students how to use WordPress. Some of the content will be free to visitors and non members while the rest of the content will be restricted to only members. As a result, you will learn how to create membership accounts and how to charge payments for students who want to buy such memberships.

By the end of this course, you would have gained enough knowledge and experience to be able to build and manage any kind of online store or membership site.
