WooCommerce is now the most popular e-commerce platform on the web, and powers over 37% of all online stores. WooCommerce gives you everything you need to sell products or services on your WordPress website. Best of all, it's completely free.
WooCommerce is powerful and robust. But it can also be a bit overwhelming at first. That's why we created this 10-part introduction to WooCommerce for beginners. This course will teach you how to install and configure WooCommerce to start selling on your website. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of all the WooCommerce basics.
When you take this course, you'll also be able to ask questions and get answers to your WooCommerce questions directly from the author of this course, Joe Casabona, and our other experts.
Joe Casabona is a Front End Developer, Instructor, and Course Creator. When he's not writing code, he teaches people how to build things with and for WordPress. You can find more of his courses at his personal website.
