To begin this guide we will be setting up the site using BlueHost who we have negotiated a coupon that you can use by clicking the link below:

https://www.wpbeginner.com/refer/bluehost/

Once you’ve installed the site on BlueHost if it wasn’t set up with the SSL certificate you can update the URL using the Really Simple SSL plugin from the WordPress.org repository here:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/really-simple-ssl/

The plugin will work with your SSL certificate to ensure anyone visiting the site will have the padlock icon next to your URL which confirms the site is secure and using https.

For setting up this site we will be using the Astra theme found here:

https://wordpress.org/themes/astra/

As well as the Beaver Builder page builder to help customize it. If you use a different theme then you may have different customization options available to you. Design the site how you would like it to display for your visitors, with the Astra theme and Beaver Builder you can create almost any design you’re looking to add to your site.

For this tutorial, we will use WooCommerce to set up the store. WooCommerce in maintained by WordPress.com who is in charge of Jetpack and you can download the plugin directly here:

    Great video to get started – I wonder if you can shed any light on how to have your shop categories appear within the main menu – I've got a "shop" section at the top & have got 2 drop-down sections for "teachers" and "students" – but woocommerce is only allowing me to have one shop page (where categories, products etc. appear) – how can I split these so people are directed to the right part of the shop from the overall website menu? Many thanks for any help & such an informative video! 🙂

    I assume selling digital rather than physical is the same plug in or is there a better one?

  • Zoe Chai on December 6, 2019

    I am absolute beginner in WP, learning how something can be done! So far, I've made one site with WAMP but it's far from what I want! This video is a HUUUUUGE help!! I must say that I'm quite sure that I've found tutorial that will allow me to make exactly what I want (it will be a website for sushi restaurant with option for ordering – WooCommerce will take care of that part)! Thank you 100 times and keep making videos like this one!

  • Tyrhonda G on April 25, 2020

    Hello, I am a teacher and I want to sell my teacher's resources in like download printables. what would be the process if we have to start an online printable store instead of the physical items. Thanks a lot

  • Lewis Ticknor on May 9, 2020

    You are awesome! Thank you! I have been making my own websites for just under twenty years. I have struggled with Joomla, my own HTML coding, and have been a WordPress guy for a decade or so. I have built my own online stores from scratch. But because I am an entrepreneur and there is so much to keep track of, I thought woo commerce was a major undertaking. The few times I have looked into woo commerce, I was always dismayed. Thank you so much for making it easy. Of course the main issue will always be hackers, scammers and fraud. But at least you took the fear of the platform away. Thanks again! Tik
