Get Started with WooCommerce Workshop
If you’ve never installed WooCommerce before, or haven’t touched it in a long time, this workshop is for you. We’re going to cover all the basics and take you from zero to a fully-functional store that’s ready for customers. Along the way we’ll work through a checklist of everything you need to do before your store goes live.
You can use your own WordPress installation or take advantage of a free Nexcess Managed WooCommerce account (highly recommended) to follow along with the instruction. We’ll also have workshop assistants ready to help you if you get stuck on any of the steps.
