So for the next few videos, I'm going to show you a few things you can do with E site ground Control Panel. I'm going to show you how you can install what press creates domains, sub domains, how you can add SSL and also how you can create an email account. Bless. First start off with are creating a temporary domain or with which and use with the rest off this particular course. So I'm gonna go ahead now and log in to the back end. I'm just go ahead and add my password and OK, so with Saga, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go over to websites and I'm just gonna go ahead now and click on new website. And there are different ways how you can go about as you can buy a whole new demand, transfer an existing domain or just go with a temporary demand. For the purposes of this video, I'm going to go with the temporary domain. So I'm gonna click on select and there you go. Saigon will automatically create a temporary domain for you Gonna go ahead now, click and continue. And I'll just say skip and create empty site. I'll just go ahead and hit finish now. This typically takes about two minutes to finish. So what I'll do right now is all simply pause. The video and museum warns the creation has been completed. Welcome back and is a concern right now. It say's you're all set. So from here, what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go straight to the manage site, clicking there and then from here, let's go ahead now and install what press. So just a lot. Chris is actually pretty easy. You would see what? First wait here, click on WordPress, click on install and manage now, depending on what you're doing. If you're going to be creating an e commerce store with Luke Hamas, then simply go ahead and choose. Select for what purpose? Welcome us. Otherwise, you can just go ahead and click on Select for War Press. I'm gonna click on select for WordPress and then in here you can uncheck the installed with the start a plug in for a quick set up. Check that, and if it admin info, simply add a using them they're going to use and also add a password using to look into the back end off what presents a very important, by the way and an email picture, you add a really mail. And that's pretty much is Just go ahead now and hit, install and voila girlishness with for a few more seconds. And there you go. What press has been installed? I can click on view site right now. And there you go. This is War Chris Website. 5. Creating a Sub Domain: In addition to co 18 temporary domains with site ground, you could also do something known as creating a sub domain. So what exactly is a sub domain? Now let's take a look at this site right here. It's called the lone Nomad. But come and as I know this is not a complete science is just a sample site. But then note that this domain is actually a real domain. This is not a temporary main. This is an actual real domain. But take a look at this other site, Blawg. That's the loan. No matter calm, you can see right here that the loan, no matter come, is in use. However, there is an extension, which is blawg dot the loan. No matter. Come this right here is a sub domain off the loan nomad dot com. So, in addition to blawg, the low no matter come, I could have something like store dot the low no matter calm news that the longer matter come and so on. So basically sub domains are like extensions off a primary domain, but yet are able to stand alone as an independent. So basically they can have different content, different functionality from the main domain. So basically, sub bombings are useful when you have just one domain. But then you want to create different kinds off websites from that one single domain. So again I can come in here right now, make the low no matter come like a simple blawg and so on. And then I could come into, let's say, our store that a moment of calm and make them like an e commerce site. Basically, it's two different websites, but they shared the same primitive man's. That's that's how that's what it's up to Maine is, and that's how you can make use off a sub domain. So how can you create a sub domain? Well, let's do this. I'm gonna go over again to the back end, and now where we have domain, I'm going to click on sub domains right there and now in here. Note that Alexander rose seven SD has already been selected, so I just come in here right now on the name and then simply choose the extension. So this goes right now it's going to be Blawg, and I'll just go ahead and I'll click on creates. And that is pretty much. That's all you need to do to create a sub domain and to install what prison? The sub domain is very easy again. Go back to what press Go to install and manage. Choose what press and you come down in here and where you have the domain. Simply choose blawg dot You know, Alexander, you know your main domain and then simply on check this box right here at your admitted info password, and then simply go ahead and install what? So that's how to quit. It's off the main and also installed what price on the sub domain. 6. Adding SSL: Let's talk about some security and specifically how you can add something known as SSL to your website. Now you must be wondering, of course, what exactly is SSL? Let's take a look at my temper domain right here. I am using the Google Chrome browser Bob. Regardless of the browser you're using, you should see some sort of message up here where you have the Uriel and it for come. It's a is not secure. Never click on the button right there. It says. Your connection to this site. It's not secure. You should not enter any sensitive information on this side, for example, passwords or credit cards because it could be stolen by Attackers, Right? Okay, let's take a look at Amazon now. Instead of not secure, you can see this padlock right there, and if I click on it, it stays. Connection is secure your information, such as passwords, because it's privately and sent to this site. In other words, whenever you go to amazon dot com and you provide your critical details, that information is encrypted, meaning that if a hacker was somehow able to get their hands on your critical numbers, those numbers will be encrypted in such a way that the hacker would not be able to understand or really decrypt what those numbers are. Basically, In other words, your information is encrypted. It's secure, no one will be able to crack them. Unfortunately, on my site right here, if anyone came to this side right now and provided an email address or any kind of sensitive information, hackers will easily be able to steal that information. So this is where SSL comes into play. SSL basically is the protocol that encrypts all the information provided on your website. And it is extremely important because not only does it help to guarantee the safety off the information of your customers, your clients, but also such engines like Google would actually reward you if they see that. Okay, you're said is secure. Google and other search engines don't like sites that are not secure, so it's very, very important that you get as a sale on your side. So how exactly would you do this? Well again, let's go back to this side ground. Ah, see, panel. And now over here. But you have security gonna click in there and you have the SSL manager I'm gonna click on SSL manager and then I'm simply gonna choose the domain. In this case right now, it's going to be, of course, Alexander will seven. And then for the SSL, please go ahead and shoes. Let's encrypt. However, let's encrypt. While Kat means that Hey, if you create any sub domains from this main domain, those wants to will also have SS Also. In fact, it depends on you if you plan on creating sub domains from this main demand and, of course, used the encrypt wild card. But if you're saying hey, I'm not gonna create sub domains, I'm only going to use this one single domain. They could go with the Let's Encrypt. So just for the purposes of this video, choose, let's encrypt and that's it. I'm gonna go ahead and I'll click on get, and this may take a few seconds. It typically doesn't take too long, so let's just see all that fool like 10 seconds and if it hasn't finished in a post a video , but it should have completed in the next few seconds. OK, so it's Asia Request is being processed. Let's just wait for a few more seconds Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on. I really don't want to pause the video. Come on, Come on, come on. I'm just go ahead and close. Amazon. I'm not doing any shopping today. Uh, my Come on, come on, come on. All right. Maybe I might need Teoh pause the video, but it really doesn't usually take this long. I don't know buying. Maybe because it knows that we called in. Maybe I don't know. Oh, come on. Okay, I guess I'll just have to post the video and I'll resume once the process has up. But just as about the polls, the video it finished. Okay, so not it stays. Let's encrypt is now installed. Awesome. Now you could click on configure https. You can click in there, and this will take it to, like, a whole new tutorial where you can ensure that even though you're saying now is when it's a sell, your said actually loans the SSL. What I mean is that sometimes even though you've ended us a sell, your website may still not have recognized that fact as an example. Even though right now you can see it Say's over here. That the encrypt sort of get is active. If I go to my site, let's just refresh and see what happens Now you can see it's still saying not secure yet Still say not secure, not secure. So if you have this kind of situation, what you can do is you can go over to the very next have been here known as the H T T P s enforce. Basically, what this does is that it forces the website they even stole SSL on to run through. SSL is basically you laying down the hammer saying Hey, look what side I have installed SSL on you now run SSL basically right? So I'm going to go over here right now and simply turn it on right here. But you have STP and force. Let's go back to my site Let's refresh the page and now you can see that the status has changed. Now it's saying the connection is secure so you don't always have to do eight to DPS and force. Sometimes your domain will immediately accept SSL and start on an SSL. Other times it may not. So just in a situation where you're having this issue with SSL not not running civil. Come over to STP s and force and then turn on a T T. P s and four. So that's a full readiness itself. Thinking fortune, I will see you in the next class. 7. Creating a Web Mail Account: Oh, I want a final thing to mention before we continue Would be how to create a professional email account for your website. Obviously, if you're creating an e commerce store or your website is a business website, then you wanna have a riel business email address associated with you Account right. It's not gonna make sense for you to be using Gmail or Yahoo is just not gonna be professional. So how do you create a professional email accounts for your upset? Well, it's simple. We're gonna go over here to email in the back end. We're gonna click on accounts now, you cannot create a an email account with a temporary domain. So what I'll do here is I'm going to switch over to a real domain, which is the lone Imetal com, and not to create the account is very easy way I have the account name. I'm just gonna go ahead now and say, Ah, let's say Alex, Right, Alex, at the Loma dot com, I'm gonna go ahead now and add my password. Let's go ahead. Now click on create And there you go. We've easily created the email account. Now, how do you actually access your email account well over here. But you have actions. You can click on the three buttons right there and then you'll see Log into Web mail. You click on that, and this will take it like a whole new page and then automatically you have looked in. But there was a question, though. Do you now have to always look into sight ground and come over here before you can access your email account? Well, thankfully, no, you don't have to. However, there is a process will have to go through to make this And tapas is a lot easier. Here's the thing. Okay, I'm gonna go ahead now and simply Let's just quickly do this. I'm gonna go ahead now, grab. This year, they'll and I would just Let's go to loan them Atacama cape. This is my site. Now. Ideally, I could do something like this. I can just say ford slash and then Web mail, click enter. And then this You take me to the patriarch and actually look in. But how do we actually do this? Let's do this. Okay. I'm gonna go back to the American That's been open. I am going to grab everything right here. Wait. We have run. Cuba will grab everything over here. Let's copy this. Okay? Now, let's go back to you. The back end and I'm going to go over. It's where you have domain. And then on the domain, I'm going to go over to be directs. Okay? It's clicking there. Now what I'm gonna do is I have the domain selected along the metal calm. I'm gonna add four slash web mail, by the way, you can customize is like it. You can say email, email, account, whatever. It doesn't necessarily have to be Web mill, but I'm gonna use web 1,000,000 here. And then I'm going to paste or we copied right in here. Basically, I am telling, say, gonna hate whenever I access long no matter. Come four slash web mail. Take me to the email account is so seated with my website. Okay. Make sure this is such a prominent serial one going to go ahead now. Click on creates. And there you go. So now let's try this again. I'm gonna come in here for first a page and there you go. I have now automatically looked in as you can see, and I can actually look out from here. All I would need to be here is just to add my user name, my password, and I'm looked in. And there you go. It's as simple as that. And by the way, you can also use a different kind off email software. Basically, this is Round Cube. You can go back over here. Let's go back to accounts. And then over here, where you have actions where you have the three dots clicking there and you can go to the male configuration. Over here you have default Web mail. You can go with hoard, click and select right depth confirm. But then let's actually come back here and refresh. I'm not sure if Okay, this will still work. But you can come in here right now and change this one too. Heard, press, enter, and this will take. It is like a whole different eyes against right now, this is a different email software, and you can just log in using their impassive and so on. However, personally, though, I prefer using the Round Cube instead with the other hurts always come back in here and switch this back to the around Cuba in Cuba, I believe, is a lot better. It's a lot more easier to use. It was confirmed that and there you go. That's how to create a professional email account for your website. 8. Installing WooCommerce: All right, so let's get this show started. And eyes I mentioned previously, we're gonna be using woke amiss to build our store and welcome us for very obvious reasons .

Check this for now because this will require the installation off a different plug in known as jetpack. Now, jetpack is a very, very powerful plug in. Unfortunately, it tends to also slow down the speed off websites. So for now, what is going on? Check this. As time goes on, we might later on the sites here in started pack and go with the automated taxes. But for now, let's just on check this now. Mail Chimp. We're gonna leave militant as it is because we also want to build out our mailing list. We want to be able to capture the email addresses off potential customers so well installed a stuff on theme and also our mill chimp. Let's go ahead and hit. Continue, but put a pop up, uh, a white. So it's training system. We connect our started jetpack, but no, but I'm going to do that just yet. We'll just skip this step for now and OK, so it stays. Well, we're ready to start selling. You can get useful tips and updates and inspiration right into your mailbox. So in here you can add animal address that you like to receive all the steps from Wu commas if you wanted to. And Ah, Well, that is it. So in here. Well, you could also created put up with the war. We will take a look at this later. So from here, I'm just gonna go ahead now and click on visit Dash Board. And that is it. Congratulations. You've successfully installed woo commas on your website. 9. WooCommerce Settings: although it is in a previous video we successfully installed and activated will come us and you should see the Wu commas. Ah, link right now in your back. And so what I want to do here is to walk you through very quickly. Some of the settings that we have on the commerce to click on settings right there. And first up, we have what we have this big giant noticia saying Hail, design your store, blah, blah, blah. This is from the stuff on theme. So I'm just gonna go ahead now and I will close this books. We don't need that. All right, so first things first under the general tab. This is where you can change the physical location of your stores address. And you also have the general options doing sell to all countries Or are there specific countries you only want to sell to stuff like that. So we'll live it to sell to all countries and in shipping locations as well. Again, you can determine where you would like to ship your products to. This is based on personal preference. There is really no right or wrong answer to any of this and then the fold. Customer location. Do you want to go with the shopper base address or just simply a Jill Kate will go with the Geo locate. Do you want to enable tax weight and calculations? Now again, this is going to be based primarily on your preference. If you would like to charge taxes, then obviously you'll check this box right here in my own store. We're not gonna be are charging for taxes, civil lifters and checked as it is and, of course, enable the use of coupons. Yes, we would like to offer coupon codes because, well, on special occasions, like maybe Black Friday or Christmas, you typically might want to offer coupons as an incentive for customers to buy your product . So, yes, we will use coupon codes, and then you have the option in here off calculating coupon discounts sequentially. So what happens here is if, for example, you have a customer who is looking enough to have two or more coupons for the same product . If they apply the very first coupon, say, it's, ah, 50% off. If you choose this option to calculate coupon discounts sequentially. The second coupon that the customer applies will then be applied to the new place. That is a result off the first coupon that has been applied. And I really hope that makes sense to you. So that's what, uh, coupons being sequentially discounted means. All right, so any of you have got also got the currency options again, you can change from the United States dollar to the Ugandan shilling. If you are based, Ntaganda and increasing position, the separator, all good stuff. I'm just gonna go ahead and save my changes under the general settings now for products. Let's jump in here.

Your products has been set to shop. That's okay. And then you've got the art to can't behavior. Would you like to return to the carpet after successful addition? No, because typically you might have customers who would want to buy more than one single products. So it's not gonna be very convenient if once they choose the first player to add to the carpet, they immediately redirected to the cart. No, you want them to add as many items as possible and then let them choose by themselves. Went to go to the cock page, enable Ajax add to cut buttons on archives. Okay, We'll live that as it is.

Written by for a fight Owners Product ratings Yes, enable separate interviews, turrets and should be quiet and optional. That's okay. Let's say that changes, all right. Not shipping and payments. We will to take a look at this later. Don't worry about that. Let's jump into accounts and apply Casey. And now in here you can determine several kinds off features festival. It says the guest check out. Would you like customers to place orders without on account? Yes, because again, you really want to make it as convenient as possible for your customers to come into your shop and buy the products. Sometimes you're gonna have customers who come to your store, only wants just to buy a very specific kind of product. In that case, you want them to go to just comment by the products and check out. You don't want to have to force them. Teoh create an account that could turn them off. It also says allow course must look into an existing account doing check out yes, for customers already have an account.

So whenever any customer decides to say, Hey, look, I would like to you guess tourism ways. My account will no longer be buying products on their stop. You typically want to ensure that you remove everything associated with that particular client. Their account downloads, history, everything. Then you've got the privacy and policy. Now, we haven't yet created a privacy page. So for now, this should be left blank. As it is, we'll take a look at this a bit later, and then finally we've got the personal data. Our attention, it say's choose how long to it in personal data when it's no longer needed for processing I like to go with one month for the inactive accounts. Pending orders will be three days filled on those three days, 33 days fulfilled orders and then three days for canceled orders as well.

AP I Web Hawks is a little bit more advanced, their mobile DeKoven in this course. So we'll just leave these as they are. So that's it. Thank you for watching. I will see you in the next class. 10. Setting up Shipping Zones: Now, I know at this point you're probably very eager to create your very first product. But before we can create a product with Wu, commas will have to create something known as the shipping zones and shipping methods. Because when you're quitting your product, you will eventually have to determine are what shipping method, what shipping cost will be applicable to that particular product. So but you have to take care of shipping. First of all, I'm gonna jump in here to welcome us, going to go to my citizens, and I'm gonna clip click on shipping right here. All right, so, you know, right now we have to create something known as a shipping zone. And in here you can see examples you've got the local zone for California. You've got the U. S. Domestic zone, which is all U. S states, and then you've got the Europe zone, any country in Europe and so on and so forth. Now, remember that my stole or our storm is based in the United States. But it's also based in Baltimore, which is a city in the state off Maryland. All right, so what I'm gonna do right now is to quit my very first ship in zone. You know what? And I'm gonna name the zone, the local. In fact, I will say, maybe lend local. All right? And then for the zone regions, Any hammer's going to type in Maryland. Alright. So anyone who is buying our products within the state of male and will be under the zone name off Maryland local right now in here. Oh, by the way, before I forget, you can also limit a very specific zip codes. So with male and you can say male end are 21117 or 21119 Something like that. You know, just be more specific for the shipping methods. I'm gonna add our very first method now, by default with Buchman's, we've got three times they called the flat wait free shipping and then local pick up right now because this is may well and local. I'm gonna go with free ship in as one off the methods to ship the product. All right? And then I'm also gonna add a second shipping method, which should be the local pickup. In this case, if the customer wants coming and pick up to protect themselves. So we'll add that one. All right. So basically, offering free shipping and local pick up to any of our customers who are within our Maryland now, within the actual shipping methods themselves, you can click on the edit button a white, and then you can say, Hey, the free shipping will require a setting kind of condition. Maybe you've you plays a minimum order a month. So it's a valid ofr a ship and coupon stuff like that. So obviously we don't want any of our customers within male and two by maybe 10 15 products , and then we'll have to ship. All of this are for free. That again depends on you on the own personal preference. So in such a scenario, you could say, Well, I'm gonna go with a minimum order a month, and then you would say we will offer free shipping to our customers in Maryland as long as they buy products that are worth at least $300. You could do that if you wanted to. You could also go with the minimum order mount or a coupon and then, of course, in minimum order, amount and a coupon. So again there is no right or wrong answer. These depends on your own personal preference and how you want to go on your own, our personal business to keep things simple. I'm just gonna go with not available nothing, you know, for shipping its friendship in as long as you're in Maryland will send out your orders to you for free. So it's safer changes and all k. So that's it for the Maryland local. I'm gonna come over here right now and go back to my ship in zones. Let's add the next one. Let's add shipping zone and this one's gonna be for the United States and Canada. No. So the regions within the zone will go with the United States. And of course, we'll go with Canada as well. All right, what's jumping here? Let's add some shipping methods for this two countries. So we're gonna go with flat Wait, that's at the shipping method flat late. All right, now, let's go ahead and hit. Edit. All right. So the method title here, iss, let later kay the tax state as well. A negative charge talks is the cost in this case is going to be 9 99 $9 it's nonsense to ship items to, uh, Canada and the United States. So we'll save the changes. 99 all right, so that's it. Flat wait for the United States and for Canada. We're gonna go ahead and add another ship in zone, and this one will be international, right? So let's name it into Nasher now. And of course, the divisions in here would now be you up. Let's go with the U up. Let's go with South America, South America. Where are you? There is South America will go with Africa as well. We'll go with Asia, and we'll go with Australia as well. You can also add, of course, Central America and some other parts, but we'll just go with this five. For now. Let's go down here and add our shipping method, and we're going to go with the flat waits. Let's add the shipping method. Flood raids. Let's go ahead and add it to the flat. Wait. All right, so in this case right now, it's going to be non taxable. Another costs because it's international. In this case, when I will be 29 19 men is getting more expensive saver changes, and there we go. So we're successfully created three defense shipping zones, one for the Maryland local, another one for the United States and Canada, and then finally one for international. Now there is also an option in here for locations not covered by your author zones and say is this zone is optional used for regions that are not included in any other ship in zone. So for this, you can just come in here, click on manage shipping methods, and then you can come in here and simply add what if I kind of shipment that you want to include in here? You can go with the flat rate, add shipping method, and then let's go ahead and hit edit nontaxable. In this case, right now, this would be Let's go with 59 are Nance nine. Okay, there's going to be the most expensive save changes, and that is it. So we have created four different shipping zones. Maryland, local United States and Canada International, of course, locations not covered by our all the zones. That's now jump into the shipping options, right click on shipping options. So what do we have here. Calculations enable the shipping calculator on the court page. Yes, hide shipping costs until an address is entered. Yes, we should only display the shipping costs once the customer has actually added their address. Now the shipping destination. Do you want to default to the customer billing address or the shipping address or simply for shipping to the customer billing address? We're gonna live it as it is. The building address. Our enable the bug mode. This will show imagine shipping zones and to bypass ship in cash. Now we don't need to change that. Bulls ever changes, and that is it for part worn for shipping with creditor shipping zones. Joined May in part two. Where will now take a look at something on as shipping classes? 11. Setting up Shipping Classes: all right. It's in people's video. We successfully created shipping zones for off them, to be exact. And before we go on, I want to make a very quick adjustment to the names off our shipping methods. Right now, you can see therefore United States and Canada. It's flat weight, but it's also flat rate for international flat way for locations not covered by our although zones. So what I want to do here very quickly is just to make some adjustments to the names. All right, some were gonna click on edit right here. And I'm just gonna go ahead and make a change to the flat. Wait here. I'm going to call this the domestic domestic flood rates. Okay, let me save that. Let's quickly go back to a shipping zones. I'm going to do the same full international. So we'll call this the international flat weight line in Teoh Nationale Fluctuate. And finally, the one for the other zones will call this one the ah worldwide flat way to cable to do it that way. So that's called Is the world wide flat Wait, save changes. Let's go back to a shipping zones and all right, so right now, it's Is it a different shit from one flat? Wait to another. Now, over here, we've got something called shipping classes. What exactly? All shipping classes over here on Amazon. I have some glasses drinking glasses. You can see you've got them made of glass. But then guess what. We also have plastic cups. Now, if you're gonna sheep one of this order both of these kinds of items. Which of them do you think would be more expensive to ship? Obviously, it's going to be the one for glass because glass is breakable. It's very, very delicate the way you would package a cup of glass and glass Couple, but different from the way your package A plastic cup. So as a result, there has to be a way how you can set higher shipping prices for certain products. Products that are delicate. The same thing can apply to a store that sells electron ICS. Okay, Now you might charge maybe, ah, $100 to sheep A laptop. However, if you're also selling like a 60 inch l see the flat screen TV, you're obviously gonna want chair charge mawr to ship such a pretty because it's bigger, it's heavier. And it's also more delicates. This is where the concept off shipping classes comes into play. So with shipping classes, you can set setting kinds of prices for our very special kinds of products. So what I'm gonna do here is it's okay. I'm gonna go ahead now and add a shipping class and gonna call this class. Name dedicates. All right. In my store here won't be a selling our clothes Accessories. The delicate items will refer Teoh accessories like jewelry and even are expensive wristwatches. Okay, so, description for reference right here, I will say, Ah, jewelry and ah, wrist watches. So these are the two kinds off products, all full on the the daily Kate class. So I'm gonna go ahead now on add that. I'm sorry. I'm gonna go ahead and save my shipping classes. You don't have another one. I'll just say that. All right, So now we've got delicates as a ship in class. Now check this out. If I go back to my shipping zones and they come over here on the let's say, the United States and Canada and I click on edit. Now, if I come over here on the flat weight and I click on edit again. Take a look at this. Now we have a special category that's popped up, asking what the Delic eight shipping class cost is going to be. In other words, if there is a certain product that is meant to be shipped to a customer within the United States or Canada and that product is a delicate product, how much do you want to charge for that product? Okay, so what I'm gonna do right now is very simply, I can come in here and say $20. We can charge $20 for any delicate item that's gonna be shipped within the United States and Canada. But I won't introduce you to a new way off adding your costs If I jump over here to this article from or commas, it's called advanced costs, and it stays. The cost field allows you to charge a flat weight per item, a percentage based cost of a minimum fee. And now in here you've got quantity and if also got fee and you have an example in here saying, if you put this down as your costs is an example, but this means is that the 10 would be the base shipping cost plus $2 for every item in that caught. And you have a second example here, which is 20 plus. And that in packets feet percent equals 10 minimum vehicles. For this means a based shipping cost of $20 plus 10% off the order total, which is at least $4. All right, so moving back to the flat rate sentence for our domestic flat weight but I'm gonna do is I'm gonna come in here for the delicate shipping class cost, and I'm gonna use the example that I just copied from the article and say, $10 as the base shipping cost and then $2 additional for every single item that is Deli Cate in that shopping cart. Now, we also have something they're known as the no shipping class cost. What if we are shipping a product within the United States of Canada that isn't in the delicate ship in class? Well, but simply going to go with the 9 99 and we no longer need this costs right here. It is no longer a living because now we're walking with shipping classes and and finally, we now have the calculation type. Do you calculate shipping based per class or per order per class implements that you'll chart shipping for each shipping class? Individually order means you charge shipping for the most expensive shipping class. So class typically would be MAWR because now you're saying, OK, well, if we have one shipping class, that's $30 for one particular product and then in the cart, there's another part of that is $20 for its shipping. The total shipping in this case would not be $50. Because you're charging for the shipping class individually, per order would be a $50 instant, because now you're simply going with the most expensive shipping class, which is the $30. So this, of course, is based on your own personal preference. I'm gonna go with the poor class. I'm gonna go ahead now and save this changes and awesome. So now we are able to assign the delicate shipping class to particular products. But he was a small issue. If I go back to my shipping zones, all right, and I come over here to mayoral and local Well, check this out. We're offering just first Shippen and local pickup for our customers within mill and local pick up. It's fine. They can always come in and pick up their expensive wristwatch or that jewelry. But then what if they decide to put chase one of my expensive wristwatches or some other expensive piece of jewelry? Are we still going to offer them free shipping? I don't think so. We want them to have to pay for the shipping if they're buying any product that has the delicate ship in class. So how do we know Do this at this point right now because we've offered free shipping, It doesn't matter. The customer can simply go to the shop page, pick the risk, torture the jewelry and then simply choose free shipping when he or she wants to check out . So what we have to do now is to remove free shipping all together, so that's coming here at it may within local, and then for the first shipping, which is going to go ahead now and delete that. Okay, so now we've taken away the ability for our customers toe order through shipping for products that are in the delicate class. But Now we have a second challenge. Now that we've removed free shipping for our clients in the middle in local area. How then do we now give them free shipping? If they chose a product that is not in the delicate class? What do we do? The answer is very simple. We a good chef to add the new shipping method, which would be the flat weight. All right. And now I'm from here. We're gonna go in here, click on edit, and then we're going to say, for the delicate shipping class course, what does go ahead and paste this right here. So we charge $5 as a base shipping fee and then $2 for every item in the cart. And now for the no shipping class cost or just said this 20 This way we can now provide free shipping to our customers with in Maryland who order items that are not delicates. This is exactly how you do this. Let's go ahead. Now. Ceva changes, and that is it. So now we're able to offer free shipping to our customers with in Maryland. Who other items that are not delegate while still charging them for products that are Delic . Eight. So that's it. Thank you for watching the video. If you have any questions about what we've done, be sure to let me know. Thank you for watching. And I will see you the next class. 12. Setting up Shipping Classes Part 2: welcome back. An appearance video with successfully created our shipping class off delicates. Now, before we move on, I wanted to quickly rectify a potential issue within our ship in zones. Now, so far, we have got Maryland local as one of our ship in zones, which is the region of Maryland in the United States. And then we have a second region, which is the United States and Canada. Okay, put a good. Unfortunately, there is a potential to be confused when you say a region off Milland. Now, for Americans who live in the United States, they obviously know Maryland in No, Maryland is in the East off the United States. But guess what? They could be another city or state called Maryland. In another country, you could have mill. And in Australia you could have Maryland, United Kingdom. Who knows so to avoid any potential mix up or confusion, it's always a very good idea that whenever you're creating local zones that are physical in the same city or state as your store, you want to go ahead and add the country as part over the region. So this goes right now, I'm gonna come in here and click on edit. And then I would say there's on regions of Maryland and then also the United States. Let's go ahead, save this. Go back to our ship in zones and there you go. So now you can see that we're specifically talking about Mill and in the United States, that's what we mean by Maryland local, not mill. And in the kingdom or Maryland in Australia but talking about male and in the United States . So this is something that you should always do whenever you're creating our local shipping zones. All right, Now, with that out of the way, I have a small assignment or a challenge for you for United States in Canada. All right. But we have currently is the flat weight shipping method. Right. And what we have right now is okay for any item that is not in the delicate shipping class cost. Charge them $9.99 for shipping, and for any item that's delicate will check them $10 1st as the base shipping fee and then $2 extra for every item that is delicates in the cart. Here is my question to you. What if there are very specific kinds of items that you wanted to ship for free to any of your customers within the United States or Canada. I'm not talking about male and local. Now. I'm talking about all the parts of America like California and New York banner and then in Canada. What if there was sitting items You wanted to ship them for free? How would you do this? You can pause the video and think about this. Fall a few seconds. If you've gotten your answer, I'm gonna give you the answer right now. And it's quite simple. What you want to do is to simply go ahead and create another class known as free settle. I'm gonna come in here guilty shipping classes, let's at a new shipping class. And we something called his class free. Just free freedom. Oh, I'm sorry. How do I spell free? Yeah, right. Free description. Just I'm just gonna go ahead and say free stuff. Yeah, but does go ahead, Ziva, Shipping classes. So from here, and I'm gonna go back to my shipping zones, Jum down specifically to the United States and Canada. Hit, edit, and then I'm gonna come in here, edit the flat weights. And now all we here for the free shipping class costs. I'm just simply gonna go ahead and say zero and that is it. So right now, as it is whenever anyone within the United States that is, isn't that isn't in Maryland or O. I know there's in Canada. If they pick a product that is, delegates will charge them this amount. If they pick it, put that has the free shipping class course associated with it. With the product, it's gonna be free shipping because it's gonna be Israel cost. And any item that isn't delicate or free will charge them to regla line dollars 99 cents. So there you go save changes. And that is it. Thank you for watching the video join me in the next gas. Well will now go ahead and begin to create eight. Our very first product 13. WooCommerce Assignment 1: all right, so it's time for a very quick assignment.

It's an abuse video was successfully created our very first product, which is the Vint Age Love X wristwatch costing 999 U. S. Dollars. Now what? I wanna do these videos to show you how to create eight variable products. In this case right now in my media library, I have this image is right here. I have a T shirt that say's she Pio idea. This is the back off the same T shirt. And now here's a different version off the same tissue. The color here is dark green or dark, our lime highway one and discovers color. So this is basically a V aviation off the Black Sea. Shit. So how can you could ate this kind off part of because if you're creating a real or in store and you're selling clothes, you're probably gonna need are variations, not even just clothes. It could be our Any other kind of polity may want to sell one particular product, but with a different Carlo with a different size with a different weight. So that's all referred to as V Aviation. So I'm going to show you now how you can create your own variable Put. Let's come down to products. Click on, add new. All right. Now we're going to say this will be this call, uh, T shirt, and then we'll say a fancy ah T shirt full boys, I guess. Full stop. School down. All right, so, product data, this is gonna be a very valuable product. SK you? Yep. T shirt B for boys enables. Took management. Still, quantity will say we have 100 back orders. Yes, a Lebanon to fire. Low stock threshold will go with over 20. No, Right, 20. I'm not for shipping. We'll just go with the, uh, no shipping class. All right, so this won't have any shipping class weights is £3.2. I just made that up. We'll go with £2.2. All right. Link for that's not yet attributes. Yes, this is Now we will have to start adding the attributes for this particular kind of part. The 1st 1 we're going to adhere would be color. That's going to be the attributes. And now we can add some text which will be developed, and then we consider this fellow's by using this particular our symbol So let's do this. The first color here will be black, right? And then we can separate it. And then we say green. So these are the two values available with Kobe half in black that we haven't in green. And I'm going to say used full variations as well. Let's save the actual boots. Now let's add another attribute here, and this one in this case is going to be size. Now what a devoto says that we have Well, we have a large And then, of course, we'll have medium. And of course, we're gonna have small, useful variations. Safety attributes. Cool. So now we've got color and size. Now I'm going to jump over here, too, where we have variations, okay? And then from here, I'm gonna come over here right now. Click on this and say, coed deviations from all attributes. What this means now is it's going to create a large size for black, medium size, for black, small size, for black, large size for green, medium size for green and in small science for green. That's what referred to as creating deviations from all attributes. Go ahead and hit. Go and it stays. Are you sure you wouldn't do this? Yes. I want to do it. Let's go ahead and do that. And I would say six variations have been added. Awesome. And now you can see these are all the variations from are two attributes. Now we can come in here individually and begin to set individual pricing and even individual shipping. If you wanted to. As an example, we've got the black large. What's coming here? Click on the air right here. All right, so in here we can add an image specifically for black and large. Let's do this. We'll choose this one here for the block and Large said, that is the image all right in here, we can said the SK you if we wanted to began, put the regular price in here. This is going to be 99. Selfies were not often facility moments or just say on the 1.99 weight in this case will be £3.2. Now, the dimensions we can say Ah, 23 by 24 by 21. It is a completely made up, by the way. So, yeah, that's a school down in here and now you can see we've got the ship in class by default is going to say same s parents. The parent shipping class in this case was no shipping class, but then you could decide to go with delicate or even free. So again, you can be very, very specific with your variations. You can set a particular price for one variation and said its own our individual shipping costs as well. So description. We could just come in here and say, Large black T shirt. Four boys. All right, and, Ah, there you go. We have set individual values for our black and large size. And then, of course, you can do the same for your black and small, your green and large and so on and so forth. Over here we have the default form values. So which Vela's will book from us use by default. When the customer has chosen this particular parked, we're gonna go with the black and the default size. That would be medium. All right, cool. Let's come down in here products that description, and we'll just say a fancy, well designed ah t shirt ful boys. And, uh, yeah, that's it. I think that's that's OK. We'll come over here right now for the product. Categories are gonna add a new category, and we'll just call this T shirts. See shirts and that's okay, Let's add the category. All right, so tags in this case right now. Well, say T shirts will say, boys, we can add those. And then for the puts image, we're gonna said the black funds as the main image and then for the gallery will just add the remaining three images in here. That's add those to the gallery and Ah, there you go. I think we've successfully created this paralysis. Make sure everything is as it should. Well, advanced on the events. Will. You could decide to add, like a very specific purchase note for this particular product if you wanted to, But that's okay. That's it. Let's go ahead. No and hit. Publish and voila! Let's take a look. Let's go to up its page. The first page. Let's do a hard refresh, actually. Hot. Fresh up. There you go. That's it. See? Shit. Okay, so now I can open it. Let's take a look. Okay. We have a T shirt. We have the other images from the gallery. We can choose option. Right now, we've got black and then because it was the science for large. But then know that we can only choose black and latch because we've Onley set price in and shipping for black and large. That's why we don't have the other options available. So I came back down here and I said, Let's go straight back to the variations and then that's it for green and larger, let's even say green and medium Let me come in here. All right. So for green and medium, I'll put the price in here as in line Antanas Well, and for the image just very quickly. I will use, disagree and image right here said that vibration image and ah, for the dimensions will say 18 20 and then 21. Let's save changes. All right, good. Let's come back in here right now. Let's refresh this page now let's see. So choose an option. Now you have going available and with the medium size, because we've set by both the price and for green medium and then present for black large. So until you set the individual person for your variations, you will not see the possible affiliations that made available to the customer. So that's it. Thank you so much. Fortunate video. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me thinking fortune. I will see you in the next class. 16. WooCommerce Assignment 2: it is time for a second assignment. And now that you've learned how to create AIDS both simple and variable products, I would like you to check your downloads folder. And in it you should see these images off hoodies. They should be six of them. You've got the black or blue one, the gray one and then the red one. I would like you to create one simple products using the image, the hooded. It has the who text in it. I want you to create a simple product out of this and then create a variable. Pull it out of the remaining two types of hoodies. So right now you can see if I go to my products. I do have the Wu hoodie. That is a simple product. I started at 14. 99 after my category off hoodies and then tags, hoodie and man. And then for the cool hoody, which is the variable product I'm gonna show you. I do have the red versions and of course, the great vision. So I want to go ahead and create the necessary variations for this particular kind of hoodie. You can go with the size you can go with the color or any other kind of variation that you want, But I want you. And this is seven to have two new put ups, a simple product and a variable put. Thank you for watching. And of course, good luck with the Yes, I meant I'll see you in the next class. 17. Creating Grouped Products: already. We're moving on. And if you've done the assembly just gave you your shop should now have at least four products. You should have to simple products. In my case, I've got the US call now. I'm sorry. I got the vintage lyrics restored and, of course, the hoodie. And then, of course, for my vegetable products. I've got the cool hoodie and this call. See? Shit. Okay, well, it is time now to show you how to create 1/3 kind of product, which is going to be grouped product. Now, under what circumstances would you want to create a group product to see right now in our store, you can see I do have a cool hoodie, but I also have another productive. It's another similar product known as the Woo hoodie. In this case right now, because they're both hoodies. I could decide to group them and the same class within same category. This is rare. Quitting grouped products comes into play something with your own particular store. You might be selling different kinds of T shirts for women, for girls, for boys. You may just want to group all the two shits on the one group item in and say, Hey, you know, you can buy these kinds of T shirts If you interest itself, let them just go to show you how you would actually do this. Let's jump over into the back end, go over to products. And what I'm gonna do right now is to create a group product with the who Dees and for the product name. I'm just gonna say hoodie would be the product name hoodie. Okay, then I will. Just for the description range of Classy. Who these for men. What? I'm going to school down here for the categories. I'll go with hoodies again. Now for the product data. I'm gonna change this show of course, Group product. Now in here for the SK you. I'm gonna provide hoodie as CSK you. And now in here we've got linked products. What products do you want to put under this group? So I'm gonna click in there and then for the group products, the very 1st 1 of course, is going to be the hoodie. I just have to type in the 1st 3 and then say's woo hoo, I'm gonna choose that one, and then I'm gonna go with cool searching for the cool hoodie And there you go. So now I've got both the Rudy and cool Hoody on the this Hoody grouped product. All right, So what else do we need to do? Said the plus image? I'm gonna use the one for the who. I'm just used on a Ziploc image. And then for the gallery of images, I'll just add all of the other ones, the back, this one, this one, this one, that one. Let's add them to the gallery. And there you go. All right. I'll just go ahead and copy what I have in here and use this full. The description Avenger question It is for men. Comes in different colors, different colors and, ah, different colors and styles. All right. Okey dokey. What else? Let's add some tags with good hoodie. Got men. Let's just add that in there. And I think that's pretty much it You can off course coming here and add specific attributes. If you wanted to, you could also do the usual. Ah, enable the visible reviews photos. Go ahead. Go to inventory. Only have tsk you to add there. That's all. All right. Good to go, Let's hit, Publish. And now let's go over to, Ah, shop page coming here. Let's do a hard refresh. Let's cool down here and very okay, so now you can see we've got the hoodie. It's right there Now. If I go ahead now, you can see it Say's view products and not select options. It now says a few products slim. Just go ahead. Now hit view products and then in here can see that we've got the Ah Vinge of classy duties for men comes in different colors. And because we bundled over there, we grouped a simple product, which was the blue hoodie. You can come in here and choose the quantity, but then we also have a variable public, which is the cool Cody. So you have the option off now, selecting the options which call over its size and so on so I can come in here, choose the gray and then add to cart and so on and so forth. So this is how you would create eight Group I attempt with Luke Omagh's first. You would into create your either your simple off label products and then add those similar products on the A single group Itim. So that's it. Thank you for watching the video. I will see you in the next class. 18. Upsells and Cross Sells: the next know nothing about here would be the concept off up cells and close cells. I'm over here where I have my hoodie single product never school down here, and I come all the way over here to linked products you can see I've got up cells and I've got Cosell's. So what exactly does this mean? Well, OpSail say's These are products, which you recommend instead of the current livery product, for example, products that are more profitable or better quality or more expensive. So in this case, right now, the viewer or the potential customer might be looking at the Wu hoodie. But guess what? I could come in here and say, Well, I'm just add this up, sell for the cool hoodie you can see right there. I can just simply go in there and add the cool hoodie or simply go with variations off the cool who they've got grave good read. So I don't go with Red as an example, because I think the cool who do it was a bit more expensive, so I can at that one in there. Let's see how this would now look like with this Upsell. Let me update this particular product. And now, let's view to put it, let's see how the observable represented. All right, I scroll down in here description, and now you can see over here it say's You may also like, and now you can see there now advertising the red hoodie. Okay, so that's for an Upsell. Let's go back, Inhale. Let's check out what across cell would look like. Let's go back in here. Goodling products so far across Sell What does disable this say's crystals are products which you promote in the cart based on the corn product. So if, for example, you are selling women's clothes, it could be that the woman just chosen maybe a particular kind off bag. Maybe it za red bag. Andi, you might want to advertise. Maybe, Ah, shoes that go with the bag, right? See? Could add the shoes that will match that bag as a cross sell. That's exactly how you would use course cells. Just additional products that complement the Cohen. Put it that the customer is taken. A look at that's what cross cells are. So this gives. Right now, we've got the, uh, the hoodie for the project for the port of Ecuador's come in here and say a T shirt. You know, I think T shirts go with Hootie's second. Had this coltish it as the cross sell. Let's update to this. OK, and now let's go ahead and view the products and say, Well, we have rights of us Go down in here first We've got the Upsell, as you can see and then we have related products. But we don't see the cross sell well. We're going to have to First of all, add this to our caught. So let's pretend we're gonna added to a cart. It's been added. Now let's view the caught. Okay, and now you can see over here it's saying, Hey, you may be interested in and I considers cultish had been advertised. So with our up cells ops ALS, you'll see up cells just beneath the product on the main page. But for the cost cells, you would not to the course cell until the customer wants to check out. And that's when ah woke. Most will now attempt to entice the customer to try to add even more items into their cut, and I think that's ah pretty smart actually. So there you go. That's how you can walk with up cells and cross cells. Thank you. Fortunate video. And as always, I will see you in the next class. 19. Creating Affiliate Products: one final product I like to introduce you to you before we move on will be the affiliate kind off products and controls one by simply coming in here and then choose in our external or a fill it products. So the thing about the Philip products is you don't own this paroxysm that works that you ate rather these airports from other people from other companies that you are advertising and selling on your own website. So typically you would have to add the product. You are really in here, and then you can add like a button, texts a by now, or learn mawr or something like that. So for the purposes off my store here, we're not going to be dealing with the Philip Products, the only political selling our books that we have made our cells. But just in case you want to sell a fill, it products on the welcome I stole. This is typically how you would create when he would come in here, choose exile affiliate at the your bill and then add the usual local applies and things like that our inventory will not be available in terms off management. The only thing you go to add in here would be the SK you so you can add that in there. And ah, that is pretty much it for the affiliate or external products. 20. Payment Gateways: besides the product that you're selling on your wall comin store Another extremely important feature off your store would be the payment gateways now without payment gateways . Well, guess what? Your customers would not be able to pay for your products, and you will not be able to take them on the either. So As a result, it is very, very important and advisable that you offer as many payment options as possible to your customers. You want to offer them as many options as possible. All right, by default, If you jump into will commas settings and then click on the payments tab, you will see these full options available. You've got the direct bank trans far. You've got check payments, you've got PayPal and then you have cash on delivery. What I want to do here is to set up and enable the cash on delivery. So clicking here, turn it on and then I'll come in here, click on manage. All right. And now in here, you can change the text for all these options. But the most important in here is going to be the enable for shipping methods. I'm gonna come in here right now, and I'm going to choose there. Is it the male and local pick up? Remember that we're offering the ability for our customers within mill and to come in and pick up the productive they've paid for or products that they would like. So this guy's right. Now, this will be available on Lee for residents with in Maryland. They can choose the products they want to buy, and then they will come in, pay the cash, and then pick up the products. So this against off course depends primarily on your own preference. You may not want these option because then you may have customers who would, in a way, order sets in items, but then they never turn up to our pay for those atoms and pick up those items. So this depends heavily on you. If you wanted to enable cash on delivery, this is exactly how you would do this. So I'm just gonna check this because we're not taking virtual orders or comments save my changes. And that would be how to nibble cash on delivery. Now going back to the payments. The next one here is going to be pay, pal. I'm gonna turn on people right now. And then I'll come in here. Click on set up. All right. Now, by default, you've got the enable Papal standard, which is cool in here would be where you would add your PayPal email address, but out any of you've got the advanced options. And we have something known as the Pay Pal Sand box. I'm gonna go ahead now and enable this sandbox. What this means is we want to, first of all tests to see if PayPal is actually walking with our website. So in this case, right now, we'll be able to make our test payments and just to see if we can receive payments, form our potential customers. So go ahead and enable these people send box. I'm gonna come all the way down in here. All right? I will ignore all these other options in here. I'll just go ahead and save my changes. All right, So now that we've enabled the sandbox, I'm gonna show you never Knicks video right now how you can create sandbox accounts with PayPal 21. Creating Sandbox Accounts: all right. As I said previously in the last video, we have enabled the papal sandbox, which would allow us to test payments using PayPal.

The customer who is coming to buy the product. So for the email address in this case have used so many of them. The miller just in here, I'm going to say cool buyer at by a dot com. It doesn't have to be like a real legit email address, by the way, so you can choose any kind of just like us. It has the at Sissoko com. You should be fine. So called buyer cool by at buyer that come. All right, and then pass What? I'm gonna add a very strict password and ah, that sits of payment methods for the papal balance.

So Germany next video available. Now test. How? Payments. Using our sandbox accounts. 22. Testing Sandbox Payments: Oh, it's another. We've got our sandbox accounts. It is time to now experiment to see if our customers can pay for products and then we can receive their payments. Now, before we do this, I want you to go to your payments tab and then on the papal. Make sure that the people email has been set to the business Matron's E mail that we used for our sandbox account. Minor was cool cellar at celeb of council. Mitchell people email is set to this mixture. Enable people sandboxes also are active. Right? Um, eligible. Rare to Firefox. And I'm going to pretend like about customer of coming here right now. And ah, let's go ahead and choose the skull T shit. I like it. And let's see, I'm gonna choose the green color. I'll choose the medium size I like it on for the big picture of them.

Email address is going to be Bob Jones at yahoo dot com. Of course, all this can be freaky. Doesn't have to be real. All right? And then, of course, remember when we were setting up Welcome us. We said that we wanted customers to be able to create an account. So I'm gonna go ahead and take this box so that Bob would be able to simply log in the next time he wants to buy something for my store. And then, of course, ship into different addresses. Depends on the customer. But they have the option of choosing a different address from shipping two billion island. Shake this. Let's come over here right now. And ah, let's just proceed to pay. Proceed to pay policy concedes that. O k Papa. Papa! Papa, Let's it was gonna happen all Kate not pay attention to this. The you always see essays, sandbox toe PayPal took home. So you can see now that this send books environment is now active. All right, so I'm gonna log in right now. with the personal account that we created, which was the cool Ah, Byam at by it'll come and then I'm gonna add my password. Let's look in. I don't save.

Order for to warn the 77 2018. That's the email. Total payment method was pay, pal. And of course, you can see for the clarification the product was this call to show the green medium size. Everything is right here. Building address, shipping address. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Okay, what I'm going to do right now is I'm gonna open up the sandbox of paypal dot com site again. But in this case, right, I'm gonna open this up in a private tab and I will say sandbox of people to come and never gonna log in as the merchant as us. So email in this case was a cool cellar at Cilla. Come and in the past would Now I'm doing this because I want to make sure that I've actually received the payment on my PayPal account due to due to a light. Let's come in here. Now, let's see what we have. Okay, lets see. And Okay, so it does say payment from Alexander. Only it doesn't say from Bob Jones, but you can see right now that we have the correct amount, which is 29 97. So one thing on the point out here is that I don't get alarmed if you have slights issues like this where maybe the name of the person making the payment isn't same. This happens a lot whenever you're testing out with this sandbox environment. All right? Just as long as you can see that we've received the money. That's all that willing matters now just to confirm that, indeed. Welcome us has registered Bob Jones as a customer. If I go back to our back end, if I come over here right now to order as I clicking here. You will now see the actual real person that made the order, which is Bob Jones four minutes ago. And it stays on hold because, well, we haven't confirmed payment yet from Paypal, so I can come in here right now and simply click on this and simply come over here and then say on hold. But it's now completed. There you go. Updates. And that is if I go back to my orders. There you go. So, Bob Jones, his order has been completed and was 29 97. So this tells us that yes, we are now able to receive payments from customers. Customers are also able Teoh pay for put up on our online store. Thank you for watching.

So that I think, is much water in the video. And as always, if you have any questions, do let me know. Think of fortune. I will see you in the next class 24. Working with Coupons: Let's talk about every customer's favorite topic, and that is coupons. Everyone. Those keepers Wait. You have a key pony able to save some money by simply applying the coupon to a particular product that you want to buy. And, of course, with your online store. Every now and then, you may want to offer a coupon for certain occasions like Christmas, Halloween in the Black Friday sales, things like that. So how would you create coupons for your products? Well, it's easy. I'm gonna jump over here to coupons under Will Calmus, And we're gonna go ahead now and create our very first coupon. Oh, right. All case, the first, its first. We need the coupon code. In this case right now, I'm gonna go ahead and say Avengers 19 will be the coupon code description. I'm not gonna add in description. I think it's self explanatory. Is it? Is all right. So under the general, we've got three different types of discount types. First, you have the percentage discount this when a straightforward this will apply a certain percentage off discount you. The total are mont off the products that the customer wants to buy. You've got the fixed court discount. Whatever percentage, this will be a fixed amount of money, so you could say $50 off of your entire cart. And finally you have the fixed product discount. This would apply only to specific our products inside off the court for simplicity and was gonna go ahead and choose the percentage discount. And the coupon amount of this case will be 50% because we have feeling very generous. All right, You could allow free shipping with this particular our coupon as well. But note that a free shipping method must be enabled in your shipping zone and beset. Require a dallied free shipping coupon. So make sure you satisfy these requirements before you are able to allow Cubans to have free shipping with them. Cuban expiry dates are going to go ahead with different off. December 2018. Use age restriction. Very, very important. Now in here, you can determine if a minimum amount of money must be spends before the Cuban can be used . And yeah, we'll just say $1. You must spend at least $1 understood before you can apply how to use this. Keep on and then you also have the opposite a maximum spend. Once you've spent a certain amount of money and then you go above that amount, the coupon will no longer be valid. In truth, I don't quite I don't really know what kind of under what circumstances this might be useful in because I can't imagine why a a store. Ah, business. And I will say, Hey, you know, if you spend more than this amount of money, then we're not going to give you Keep on it should be the other way around. You should you should want to encourage your cosmos to spend as much money as possible before they can be able to use Ah, keep on. But anyway, you've got the individual use only where it say's uses. Coupon cannot be used in conjunction with although coupons. So you have a future in there. You can also choose to exclude the use of coupon on items that already on Sil. And yes, I'll check that if an atom is ancillary, it's pretty much been discounted. So a plan, a further discount might be bad for business. Right? So I'm gonna check this. Make sure that we exclude any items that on sale from the use off this coupon. And now in here, you can choose certain products that this coupon can only be applied to. You can come in here and then just simply search for the products. It is because I can go with something like Woo as an example. Now I have the Wu hoodie. What this means is that this coupon will only be applied to this particular product called the Hoodie. However, if I live this blank as a raise, it will apply toe every single product. And now in here you've got the exclude products I can choose set in products where this couple will not be applicable to. In this case right now, I can come in here and say, Ah, the T shirt. Let's see which one we have this cultish. OK, so we're going to exclude, do you? So this coupon from the puts this call T shirt all right. And then, of course, you can choose the setting categories where this coupon can only be apply to you can explica degrees as well, and then you've got the allowed e mails. This is interesting and stays you could white least 1,000,000,000 emails to check against when another. It's placed so you can actually choose sitting kinds of e mails that can be used with this . Keep on. If he used hysterics, for example, hysterics hysterics gmail dot com, for example. You can see right there an example. Are any email that has the extension Gmail will be able to use this coupon if it's Yahoo or Hotmail or any of that kind of email, they will not be able to use this. Keep on. So this is a very, very our interest in future. And finally, we have the usage limits. How many times can he uses? Keep on. You've got the usage living per coupon. I'm gonna go with two. You can limit the use of this. Keep onto a set amount of items in your cart in here. You've got the option off saying Well, apply to only one item in the cart or two items or three items, and so on. I'll just go with a Plato all qualifying items in the cart and finally, the usage limits part use of how many times you want one, particularly that's available to use this coupon under is gonna go with Ah, let's go with twice. Why not? Because we're really very, very generous. Going to go ahead now and publish this coupon. Avengers 19. Now, let's go ahead and test to see if this would actually work. All right, I'm gonna open up in new tab right here and let's see. Let's go to the shop. All right, let's test it out with this. Ah, woo hoodie. First to see. Ah, select options. Let's go with the gray. Let's go ahead. And at that one, it's 15 99. Let's view the carts. Okay, let's not try to play the coupon in here. I've got the Avengers 19. Let's apply the coupon And there you go. So you can see right now that the coupon has been successfully applied. 6 99 That's pretty awesome light. Okay, let's do something else. I'm gonna go ahead now and remove this item from the cart and let's try our Adan, the T shirt and what we said. We don't want to teach you to be able to use the coupon, so let's try to see if we can bypassed the Cuban restriction. Black large. Let's go ahead and adds to the cart view the carts. Okay, We're gonna apply the coupon code right now. Avenges 19 apply. Keep on. That's if it work. Nope. They say sorry. This coupon is not applicable to select a product. Soap. There you go. The coupon. It was actually not applicable to this call to should because we said the coupon should be applicable to every product except our skull T ships. Okay, so that's I think if watching the video, you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. I will see you in the next class. 25. Managing Refunds: Oh, why'd so we're doing very well. We've been able to we set up different payment, get ways we've been able to walk with coupons. However, there is one very important feature that we haven't talked about yet. And that is the ability for customers to requests for refunds Every now and then. Every business always has refunds. And if you're selling stuff online, you're probably going to get one or two customers who might want to have a refund. Maybe they didn't like the product may be the order they plugged by mistake. So you wanna offer the opportunity of the ability for your customers to make requests for refunds. Now, what I have over here is the account off, one off our customers who has the email address of when elect 64. So right now, this is how the account set up looks like for our customers. They can come in here under the dashboard and they will see old is text. They can take a look at the previews orders they're saved, addresses, their billing address, the shipping address and so on and so forth. You can also add our payment methods and save them as well, and they also have their full account details where they can change. Ah, their name, the last name, the email address change the password and so on and so forth. One thing that's missing here, though, is the ability for them to request for a refund. And that's what we're gonna do here. But before we do this, I'm gonna jump back over here. And when I'm gonna do is I'm gonna come away to my settings, go to General and little mixing quick changes. I'm gonna change title for my blawg to our cool stall. All right, let's go. Cool store. And then, uh, the tagline will be cool clothes for every man and woman. Okay. All right.

I'm gonna changes to Alex. Adds the Web a monkey online dot com. Okay, all right. And the reason why I'm do this is because I don't want our customers to get emails. Whenever they have credit in a counter, whenever they've purchased a polygamous, and then the from name will be my block. That would be so unprofessional. So you want to use the name of your store instead where you have the from name. All right. Gonna go many right now. Save my changes. And we are good to go. How do you provide the ability for customers to request for a refund? Well, there is a plug in, known as the hiker woke Hamas. Refund plug in. There is a free version, which is, of course, free. But it is also a paid version. For now, we're gonna go ahead and use the free vision, so please go over to boycott dot com. Ah, fourth slash plug ins for slash.

This is where you would see all the letters. Different requests not have been. Don't so far. So let's go back a refund. So on the general, you have the different settings and it will refund. Yes, you could enable partial refunds, but this is only available with the premium version off the plug in. You can also enable refund for sell products, and but again, that's only available with the premium version of the plug in. And now over here, it say's display the different button when or dusters becomes completed. You cannot change this to any other particular kind off status with the free vision but it's OK. It's fine. Complete. It is. Okay. I mean, we typically want a customers to be able to request a refund. All the after a transaction has actually been completed. Right? All right, now over here. Well, the options in here also on Lee, available with the Puma confession of the plug it. But again, don't worry, it's fine. You can still do a lot with the free version. Typically down in here, right? Never got the refund request from settings. And you can add some preloaded reasons for a refund. Things like the port was the wrong size. It didn't match me.

Right now, the email sets inside what kind off tempered wanna go with you Have the work must temperature of the HTML template. I'm going to stick with the book. Almost template. And then from name Cool store? Yes, from email. Alex of their monkey online. Yes, that's exactly what we want. You could also potentially show the on subscribe on subscription option to your customers, but then that's only available with the Purim version. No ways for that. Let's cool down in here. All right?

Let's go ahead now and test this out. Right. I'm going to go back to customers page right here. And what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go ahead now and click on the refund requests. All right? Okay.

Populating our Store: all right. Now, the very first step we're gonna do right now would be to create new product categories. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna jump of a two products. I'm gonna go to categories. And what I want to do here is to create two massive categories. OK, one for men and then one for woman because I'm gonna be selling clothes and accessories for both sexes. All right, so I'm gonna come in here right now and call this men. I'll scroll down here. This plate type, you can go with default products. It doesn't matter. I'll go with products, and then for the thumbnail, I'm gonna go ahead and use an image from my library. And by the way, you should now have access to all thes images.

If you're selling for both men and women, make sure you have men and women as the main categories, and then you can have sub categories of the items on the minute woman. If you're selling any other thing, maybe a selling electro Knicks as an example, or your cell in toys. Whatever it is that you're selling on your online stole, I would like to now take some time out to really categorize your products, have main categories and then try to create our sub categories out of those men categories . Now, once you're don't with this, it's no time to go ahead and begin to add are lots off new products into our store.

You would see that the theme of Commence and Stolen the image of a musician service by optimal and then orbit Fox. The reason why I have chosen not to go with this plug ins is because when it comes to image optimization, there are better plug ins in my opinion, and I will introduce you to one of them a bit later.

So with this particular blogging, you get access to lots of different cancel functionalities like your menu. ICANN's Beaver Builder. We jets you have elemental rejects, social sharing and so on. The downside towards using plug ins like this is that you end up having ah, lot of features a lot of functional is that you don't even need.

Adding Live Chat Functionality: one feature you could add to support your customers would be the live chat functionality. And I'm pretty sure you must have seen this feature on a few upsets before. Now for Woo Comas. Welcome. ER's recommends these particular plug in known as the live chat for War Comus Plug in. It is free to download, however, to actually use the plug in itself. You'll need to subscribe to some sort of ah, monthly plan. Now, this is their page on the what? Press off a repository. So over here, right now, it lists all the benefits of this plot gain and all that. But then when you school old way down here Wow, that was it. Ah, OK, so it's a Z. So here's a question right here.

And now it says Jeffrey Futural. Yes, they will offer your future for 30 days after the 30 days. You'll interesting up for one of their R pay plans. I believe that she passes, I think, $19 per month to use this particular are plugging. So you could if you want, you could try out this plug in for 30 days and then see if you like it. However, I found a different plug in which has a paid vision but also actually has a free vision that you can use in a plug in is called the WP live chat Support a plug in. So you do have the free vision futures right here, which is quite a lot, to be honest. I mean, you can even integrate things like Google analytics and gives and things like that. And then, of course, they've got the paid version which will have things like the old limited life chat agents, agent to agent chats and so on. So what? I'm gonna do this video, just give you a quick walk through on how to use this particular plug in. So I have already downloaded, and I've installed and activated the plug in as well. And you can see right now that without even doing anything without doing any sentence over here right now, you can see that there is the orange circle right there, which anyone can now use to begin to chat with us on the store now to modify the settings. All you have to do is to go to your back end and you will see the live chat link right here . Simply come over here, click on life chats to begin with. So am I. Right now you will see this message saying, Hey Ah, you don't have the GPL compliance. Ah, fame going on now. This depends on you could, of course, off course we're coming that you go ahead and ensure that your GDP l compliant. But for the purposes of this video is going to go ahead now and dismiss and accept responsibility. You know what, So right now you can see that it has we detected that I am on the website. I'm using the chrome Boza, um in Thailand. Amusing windows I'm using. I desktop is well, so you can see right now that the plug in has already recognized that I am life on the site . So let's take a look at some of the sentence that we have right here. Sit ins and it's quite a lot, But trust me, the sections are pretty straightforward. So you've got the general settings, right? And of course you want to enable the chat. You can determine what checkbooks feels will be required so you can go with name, email and so on. You can change the guest name, add some default texting there. And, of course, you've got all these available options in air play sand. When there's a new vis store, why not? Let's do that school all the way down here. You can enable your Google analytics integration if you wanted to. Now this is very, very important under the advanced settings. Now, for some reason, you discover that your sight has become slow as a result of this plug in. You want to come in here and choose the ideal kind of environment at your own. So if you're in a shed hosting ah, low level plan already and for some reason it it's still very slow. You may want to upgrade your hosting plan to something better so that you can at least support your customers. Viol life chat. If your normal plan and again, if it's still slow, you may want to upgrade your server. Just contact your Web host and let them figure out something for you. All right, let's cool. Old way down here. You've got the chat transcripts, settings as well. So you can decide to enable the chat transcripts, and you can send them to the user or send them to an admin you can choose to send trussed up in the chat ends. And so we can modifying the email body, head on foot and so on. So all this you have under the general settings Now for the chat box itself. Okay, you can change the element. Where would you like the box to be? Typically, you would find them on the bottom. Right corner auto. Pop up. Yes or no? I'm gonna live in. No. And then in here you can do things like display the name show an avatar show the day, the time things like that you can add social. Although I'm sorry, this is only available with the premium version. But in here you can enable give integration. So ah, your agents, The people answering questions can send gifts. Your customers can also send gifts if you don't want to do that. So that's a bill before you. And then you got the offline messages. All right. Do you want to use us to send off like messages? Show why not s. And as an agent becomes online, they will read those offline messages, and then they can respond in kind again. You can come in here and change all the default text in the air. You can add your email addressed to where the off limits just sent two identifications and so on. Ah, you've got style. And as well, you can choose the kind of style that you want for your chat box call scheme. Changed the full text and so on. And then agents. Okay. Now, by default, you only have one agent with the free version. If you need to have more agents, more people that will be allowed to answer questions you will need to upgrade to the premium vision off this particular plug in. I've got blocked visitors in here. You can add I p addresses that you want to block. Maybe they were setting people who just come to your chat and begin typing nonsense, asking some very stupid questions. You can get the i P address and simply plug it in here and just banned him from ever being able to contact you. You've got surveys and lead forms, doc suggestions and so on that there's a lot of other features in here that you can go over what? I want to do it here. Just walk you through the basic functionalities that you're not overwhelmed. So that's pretty much how you can set up this live chat support system I want I want to do right now is to test this very quickly. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna open up. I'm sorry. I'm gonna open up a private window, all right? And I'm going to go to the cool stole. You know why? So in here right now, pretending to be a new guest a lot. I'm gonna come in here right now, clicking here, shot with those. I'm gonna click on stuff. Chart my name. My name is James. My email is James 4567 off for 568 at James dot com. There's a very fiqh email address. All right. Start the charts, and I'm going to say hello. Can you hear me? You know. So that's me pretending to be ah, customer. So over here right now. If I go to my back end, I come away. It's a live chat, so you can see right now that it said, Oh, there's someone here cold James who is active and what I'm gonna do it. Nice to go ahead and accept the chart. So right now we can begin to chat with James so I can say hello, James. Okay, all you James Bond, you know you can You can ask questions like that coming here and then from over here right now from James's Ah, window, you can see right now that cool store has joined. So that's basically have it goes back and forth so you can see that the plug in are actually does its job in it does a pretty are decent job. So that's how you can add the live chat support to your online store. It's optional, but it's a good way to really build trust and relationship with potential customers when they know that there is under the carry child to look and answer. Their questions are immediately. Thank you for watching. I will see you in a next class 36. Adding Social Media Share Buttons: one of the easiest and best ways of marketing your products would be through the use of social media. But it shouldn't just be you constantly putting stuff on Facebook or Twitter. You also want your customers to help you promote your products. Now I'm over here at Tommy Hill figure and scrolling down here on this particular product. You can see that they've got their share buttons right here for Pinter's Facebook, Twitter and, of course, our tumbler. So what I wanted in this video to show you how you can create something similar so that your customers can share your products on their own social media platforms. So we're going to make use of a plug in here known as share it. And for some really old strange reason they are into any plug ins out there that you can get for free that are compatible with Wu commas. And I'm speaking strictly about plug ins for social media sharing. You can get a lot of them for your regular posts and what press pages but for walk must put out specifically, they are very way and they're not too many. But anyways, this is a pretty good plug in its by deaf themes and also well maintained. So you can go ahead, download and still activate the plug in already. Don't that now, when you do the same, you will see the share it link right here and click in there. And this is where you can choose the general settings. Where would you like to display? The social media buttons I will typical like to display them are on after the single put summary section. You can also just click on there. There are. If you're not sure, your buttons and other positions. You can just click on as many as you want, and you can click on them again to remove the particular position. So I'm only gonna go with the own after single pull ups are great section and I'm in here the floating modus typically for our your pages and posts. But because this is strictly a welcome stole, I'm not walking with posts and we're just gonna go ahead and turn this off. And there you go on. So that's it for the general settings in here. We've got the networks, all right. Which notebooks would elect? You are enable sharing with and one major gripe I have this plug in is that they don't have Instagram, and I think that's very, very strange. Instagram is one of the biggest social media platforms, and they don't have ah, one for it. But I'm hoping maybe with the next update, they will include Instagram. Anyways, we got Facebook tweets. I'm gonna add Google. I'll add pence arrests. Also add very it. And of course, I will act tumbler as well. All right. And finally, we have the display options. You've got different themes. Got a modern theme. And over here, you've got the preview, Um, one of them circle modern thing rounded. I'm going to go with the regular our modern theme as a days and despite the message, Should has put up. Yeah, why not? Let's go ahead. Civil changes. And you know what? Before we actually check this out, let's change the theme to round it instead. I think I like the rounded better than the regular Morton theme. So, yeah, let's do this. Let's go to the modern theme rounded. All right, let's go over to our store and see what it looks like. Let's go with women genes. Ah, what we have here. We've got the blue jeans. Let's go ahead and view that one few Jin's And there you go. We have the products right here where they can share the links idea. But there and there can click on Facebook and it goes straight in here. And of course you can see. Right now I can type in something about this particular genes and then post it so that all my friends on Facebook will know that I am buying some lovely pair of jeans for my lovely girlfriend. So there you go. That's how you can add social media buttons to your welcome our store so that your customers can share your products on the social media platforms. Thank you for watching the video, and I will see you next class. 37. WooCommerce Image Optimization: as you begin to add new images and products to your stole. Eventually you're gonna have hundreds, maybe even thousands, of different kinds of images. Now, while it's good for your business to have as many products as possible to sell, it could be a potential problem because the more images you have, the most space Europe server is going to need and potentially the slower you website is going to be, because now your site has to load the images off all these products of yours. And of course, because you're selling images, your images air actually like the main selling points of your products. You wanna upload high quality images as well and high quality means, Ah, heavier data. This means that these images will take up most space and they will also take a bit longer to load. Now, the thing is to avoid your website becoming very slow because, listen, if you didn't know this, the average are span. Human span, attention span on. The website is six seconds. It is six seconds. So imagine if someone comes to your store for the very first time and they're actually interested in buying the future products. But then if your website takes too long to load. Well, guess what? We're just gonna go elsewhere and buy whatever they want to buy elsewhere. So to avoid this and to make sure that your images optimized, you want to make use offsetting plug ins to compress and optimize your images as much as possible. Now, there are two main plug ins for these. You've got the small sh image compression and optimization by the WP and you def team. And you've also got this other one called the U Image optimizer now both. Oh, really good. But I prefer the smush image, compression and optimization. I just think it's a little easier to use. So what I want to do here is to show you how this plug and actually work. So please go ahead, download, activate, download and stolen and activate the plug in. Now, I have done the same already, and when you do the same, you will see this marshalling down here so much. Just click and smush. All right, All right. So in here you will be presented with this. Oh, I'm so Yeah, I clicked out of it. Uh, I don't You would have seen. Okay, there it is again. It's a quick set up, so basically in here, you can choose some quick options. So the very 1st 1 here is to automatically smush your images when you upload. I think this is a great idea. So, yeah, lived that on now stripping my image Metadata. Now, here's the thing. Okay. Whenever you take photographs off images with cameras, you typically have this thing called the meta data that will have information like the focal length, the time the picture was taking the location. And someone. If you don't need this kind off data, it is essential that you stripped them off. Because when you have them them, we'll take up more space and will also take images longer to load. So unless you really, really, really need this information for your customers, unless your customers really need this information, it's best that you strip off those kinds off information and then in here you've got Oh, my God. I clicked. Other really get I'm sorry. Let me click back inside. Okay. That is the last time I'll click outside. I promise. All right, So the little estimate here is to resize your full sized images Any here it stays. Detect unnecessarily large oversize images on your pages to with use this size and decrees low times. I think this is a great option. So I'm going to go ahead now and turn it on. And now in here, you can set a max with an IMAX height. So whenever you buy mistake, you upload images that exceed this limits. Then the smush plugging will automatically re science. That man, I think 2014 it is even be two lots. I'm gonna bring this down to, let's say, 1920 by 10. 80. I could do this if I wanted to sell. If I upload an image is larger than this size is. Then the plug gambled besides them so that you go gonna click outside now and there you have it. All right, So what do we have here? You've got the ability to bulk small sh all the images, your library. Right now they're 91 that you can see so I can come in here right now and just click on box Marsh now and that will happen. But before we do that, let's jump over here to the settings so in here right now, you can see the various kinds off image size that have been created as a result off the theme use images a shop I'll theme and also, as a result, off the work must plugging. So this depends on the kind of theme you're using. Your theme may have created less image sizes, and we have credit more. But if you're using the exact same thing, Azam using you should have the exact same number off different sizes. So for particular reasons, you could decide just to remove set in Image says it's from being optimized. But I really don't see why you would want to do that. Let the school down in here. All right. So strict image data. Yes, that's that. Ah, resize my full size images. We've been through this radio and just quickly do this one more time. 1920 by 10. 80. Okay, All right. So it is detect and show in quickly Science images. Now, one of the very powerful features of this program, but I haven't found elsewhere is the fact that this plug in actually has the ability to run through your site and then check images that I eat a too large or too small for the containers. So this is a great way to, like, double checking and show that your images are well up to mice for whatever sizes for forever continents that been displayed in. So I'm gonna go ahead now and turn this on. The good thing here is that even if there's certain images that are in properly sized for the containers, your visitors will not save on Lee. You as an admin will be able to see such images. There'll be No, you've been notified. Gonna go ahead now and updates my settings in here. Oh, okay. Let's click outside. Right? Just so you know, we do have a premier division of the plugging. They'll give you additional features like this. So if you're interested, you can simply go ahead and check that out. Right? So that's for the bulk. Smash. Now you've got something in here known as the do victory smarts where you can choose to specifically resize are certain images within a setting kind of fold up. So from here right now, what you do is you click on the choose directory. But please, before you go with this option, you need to ensure that you know what you're doing. It. You need to understand the Watercress folder directory set up properly. Okay, so in here, right now, for example, on the WP content, I can open this up right now. Ah, and then I can go to my themes. I can go to shop I'll and then they can choose a sets in our directory in here that would have set in our images, like, see assets as an example and then and so on. So, really, you can just choose the Ford of that. You want to optimize in here, but make sure that you know what it is. Ah, that you're doing. All right, that's that now, integrations. You can also integrate the plug in with sets in our kinds off features like your Gutenberg with the Amazon as well. But the next General NextGen gallery plug in. But before these can work, you need to have this plug ins actually activated and one in on your site. And then finally, you've got the CD and the content delivery network settings. God, I'm getting kind of annoyed with this over this constant public that keeps appearing. All right, so in here, right now, you can automatically compress and re size your images by using a CD en, which is a content delivery network. But then this will require the premium vision off the plug in and then finally, settings, which just involves all language. Translation. You don't really need this. All right, let's go now to you. Our books. Marsh. Oh, my And something's gonna go ahead now and click on box mush now And there you go. It be a baby this is gonna take I think, ah, a while Because I've got NATO one images optimized or that there had to be optimized. So this is gonna take a while, So I'm just gonna go ahead now, positive video, and I'll resume the video once the optimization has been completed. Oh, I welcome back. And as you can see right now, there is a notice saying that you have reached the 50 attachment limit for box motion in the free version. Upgrade to protest Marshall into the images or click resume to smush another 50 attachments . I'm just gonna go ahead now and hit resume, all right? And it's gonna keep on optimizing the remaining images. So here's the thing about the uh smash image plugging right. There is a free version, and there's a pro vision now with the free version. It is my understanding that you can smush Aziz many images as you want individually, however, when your box marsh and I think they do have a limit off 50 or 100 I'm not quite sure exactly how this works to be honest, because I have tried this before, and every time you smush your 1st 50 images by bulk, you'll get that message saying, Ah, hey, you know, you need to upgrade to the pro version and any click on the resume. It just keeps on optimizing. So I'm not quite sure exactly what's going on here, But as long as it works, I guess it works. So. But seriously, you should consider get in the pro vision of this plug in, because it really does a very, very good job, and it is a plug and I actually use. I do use the pro version for setting cancel websites, and I can guarantee you can tell you right now that the plug in diplo vision are those really really, really good job. So if you really uploading lots of images and immediate library, it might be a good idea for you to invest and gets in the prison vision off this particular plug it. All right, so it's almost done. Ah, it is six of 91 in seven. So we'll just wait until all the images have bean smushed. And in here right now, you can see the latest stats. You can see how many images in total were smushed in here. It saves 832 days because of the different sizes of the same kind of image. So keep in mind that one image can have various kinds of sizes. You can have thumbnail sizes, the product catalog sizes, the parts in my size and so on. So that's why you have 832 in total, and you can see right now I have saved 14.6 megabytes, which is for men, 20% in total savings, which is which is great. All right. So just realized what was happening with the 50 image limits are bulk optimization feature . So what happened? What's happened here is that with the free version of the plug, and you can only optimize 50 images at a go. So if you had maybe, like, 200 images that you wanted to optimize the very first time you click on Box Marsh, it will smart the 1st 50 and then you have to go back manually. Click the button to box much next 50 and then you go back again. You books much for the 3rd 50 and so on and so forth. So with the free version, you can only optimize or compressed 50 images at a goal. I was confused because I always work with the premium version where you click the button once and it just compresses as as many images as you have in your media library. So that's what was happening there. All right, good to know before he won the sublime to show you how you can also optimize your images individually from a media library. So I've been coming here to media Good. She'll library in here right now. Once you click on any image cities one right here, you would typically see the small sh bottom mightiest say okay, you can smash this image to optimize it But because we have already optimized this image, that option isn't there any longer. But ideally, if you uploaded a new image and you set your plug in not too optimized images, especially upload them. If you came in here right now and looked at the image, you will see the button here that say's are small sh image now or something like that. So that is it. All right, So that's how to bulk, optimized and compress your images with this much image compression optimization Plug in.
