WooCommerce Training Course

WooCommerce Training Course Overview​

This course is conducted online by an Instructor using Zoom.

Our practical WooCommerce training course will equip you with knowledge and skills to build a professional online store from scratch on your harddrive complete with products, shopping cart, checkout, payment gateway, and shipping.

WooCommerce can also be set up as a catalogue with no prices and no checkout. You will receive an e-mail with the products customers are interested in, at which point you can send them an order/invoice.

We assume you start the course with no prior e-commerce experience, programming, or technical skills.

WooCommerce is a free plugin that you install on your WordPress website. There is no monthly fee.
