In this Woocommerce tutorial, we teach you how to create a ecommerce store. Using WordPress, it is very easy to create an ecommerce store. Even if you’ve never made a website before, you’ll be able to set up your own simple store.

Go to Fiverr here: http://www.fiverr.com

Step 1: Get iPage $1.99/month hosting domain name

To create an ecommerce store, you are going to need website hosting and a domain name. We strongly recommend iPage because it is very cheap ($1.99/month) and you get a free domain name with your purchase.

To get it, simply click on this link: http://wholesaleted.com/y/ipage

At the end of the setup you’re going to be in the control panel: Stay there for step 2.

Step 2: Install WordPress & Woocommerce

In the control panel click on the WordPress button. Follow the instructions to install WordPress. For more details, watch our video on how to create an ecommerce store. When you’re done, you’ll be able to login to your WordPress admin account – do this.

Next, to create an ecommerce store you’ll need to install the Woocommerce plugin. You do a search for Woocommerce in the plugin search bar to find it, no need to download it. Be sure to activate it.

Step 3: Install the Woocommerce theme Mystile

Next, we are going to install the Woocommerce custom theme, Mystile. It is absolutely free. You can download it here: https://www.woothemes.com/products/mystile/

Even though it says it it is a “product” it isn’t. It is free. Click add to cart and then create a free account to access it and download it. Return to your WordPress admin and go to the themes section of your account (for more information, be sure to watch our video on how to create an online store).

Step 4: Customize your ecommerce store

The first thing you want to customize when you create an ecommerce store is your shipping and payment options. We’re going to set it up so that we can accept payments with PayPal, which means we can start getting paid straight away!

Head to the settings and click on the setup button. Follow the instructions. You’ll need to select what type of payments you’ll accept and you’ll need to select what countries you’re accepting shipping from.

The next thing you’ll want to do when you create an ecommerce store is add the items that you’re going to sell. To start, create categories to organize the different types of items you are selling. After that, click “add product.”

From here you can add two major types of products: Simple and variations. A simple product is a product that doesn’t have variations (for example, a mug that only comes in one colour) whereas a product with variations has multiple options for the same product (e.g. a mug that comes in multiple colours).

For all products, add in a title and a description. If you want your product description to be SEO friendly, ensure it is at least 400 words long. Add in a picture gallery with your photos, and add a feature image to appear as your listing thumbnail picture.

If you select to add a simple product, you’ll only have to put in one pricing option and one shipping option.

If you select to add a product with variations, you’re going to need to add in the pricing and shipping options for each variation.

Next, you’ll want to create your homepage. Create a page. Name it “home.” Keep it blank for now. Next, go to your settings and select reading. Pick “home” to be the static page on your frontpage of your website. Next, go back to your page “home” and edit it.

I recommend deleting the title “home,” adding in a custom banner, putting some text on the homepage (to make it SEO friendly) and to have a preview of your last added products. To do that, simply add this piece of code:

[recent_products per_page=”8” columns=”4”]

I also recommend customizing the following:

Add a custom logo (necessary)
Add a custom menu (necessary)
Add an about us page (optional)
Update the footer (optional)

hey guys in this video I’m going to show you a step-by-step fast and easy way to start your own online store now don’t get me wrong I absolutely love Amazon and eBay I think they are amazing selling platforms all you need to do is list your items on there and then they will do the marketing for you but there are downsides as well with Amazon eBay you have huge price competition high fees and you also have limited ability to do upsells and
email marketing to your customers having your own store also means that you can sell items that are prohibited for example I have a friend that’s doing over fifty million dollars a year selling a cigarettes e-cigarettes are banned on Amazon and there are other things that you can also do in my next video I’m actually going to be showing you a sneaky trick for how you can dropship items in your own store that you would not be able to do on Amazon
or Ebay depending on when you’re watching this the video may have already been released if it’s already been released I’ll include a link to it in the video description below now I’m not going to lie creating your own store definitely has a learning curve but it’s well worth it for the huge profits that you can earn to make it as easy for you as possible I’m going to tell you the step-by-step instructions that you need to create your own online
store and I think you’re going to be surprised just how easy it is let me switch over to my computer and give you a sneak peek at the store that we are going to create hey guys so I wanted to give you a quick overview of what we’re going to create today so this here is the store I’m going to take you through step by step as you can see we’ve got a custom logo we’ve got a menu we’ve got a cup got a chi cap we’ve got an area where people can add
their account or can credit create account with our store if we scroll down the page here you can see we’ve got a got a banner for our home page we’ve got some content on our home page we’ve got a list of the recent products that we added to our store I’ll show you what the different product listings look like for the different items that we’ve added so if we click on this one here you can see that we’ve got a big feature image we’ve got a
gallery of images and if you select an image you can get it you get it pops up and you can take a look at a bigger version of the image so looks really professional the scullery we closed that we’ve got a title you can substitute this item to be on sale and I’ll show you exactly how I’ve done that I bet it in a bunch of content for this that takes me to it I’m optimized for search engines but give a list of adding on a bunch of content for it
here I’ve done something I show you how to do them how to edit it and something I’ve added that’s really cool is that you can come here and you can select variation of this cutlass mug so you can sleep two by two black red green or yellow so if we select black so we’ll pretend that we’re a customer and we’re coming to order this we just click Add to Cart and then you can see we can just click view cart here and going to show you how easy it is
for your customer to checkout so once they come here they can they can add other items their cart but let’s say they just want this they can come and click proceed to checkout and then as you’ll be able to see we’ve got to do here is create an account with us so that we can keep the contact details and remark it to them later again and then they can once they’ve done that they can proceed to PayPal and when they proceed to PayPal they’ll be able
to pay with your credit cards whether or not they have a whether or not the customer has a PayPal account they can use PayPal to pay with your credit card regardless and the great thing about PayPal is that you get paid immediately which makes this a really great option if you want to dropship items so that is the sneak peek at the store that we are going to be building let’s get started on the four step process to building your own online store
step one is registering your hosting and your domain name step two is installing WordPress step three is installing our e-commerce theme and step four is customizing our own store so we’re going to be doing things like adding a logo adding products in in a home page and if any of this sounds scary don’t worry because it isn’t in fact if you want you can even follow along with video and build your store while I’m building mine so let’s get started
on step one which is registering our hosting and a domain name for those of you that don’t know a domain is a unique URL address to your website it’s very similar to an offline address offline you may have an office located at 167 Jackson’s Road if someone goes to 167 Jackson’s Road they’ll find your office your domain is your business’s online address and it’s how people find your business’s website on the internet for example Google comm is
Google’s domain name if you were to type in google.com into your browser’s address bar you would land on Google’s website and for those of you that don’t know we’re posting as a service that lets you store your website’s files online think of web hosting is the same as renting out an empty office you need an empty office to store your furniture but the office comes unfurnished while to build your own online store you’re going to need to upload
and store some files online you’re going to need to upload your images and your products after and things like that luckily most of what you need to do has already been done for you and the rest of the stuff can be set up with a few clicks I’m going to be showing you exactly how to do this and exactly what you need to upload now to get both our domain and our we’re posting we’re going to be using one of my favorite services online which is called
I page I really like a page because they are really simple and easy to use and importantly they’re very competitively priced you can get your own domain and we’re posting for just a dollar ninety-nine a month I’m going to switch back to my computer now and show you the step-by-step instructions on how to set up your domain and we’re posting with a page so I’m here at I page now I page is the web hosting that I use and I personally recommend
because it’s really cheap to get started and they also include a free domain registration which makes it super simple and easy for people that have never opened an online website before especially an online store before now you can get your own iPage hosting in the video description below I want to note that there is an affiliate link I’m only recommending it because of the fact that I personally use I page and I love it so let’s get started you
click sign up now and she’s going to load up I’m going to be apologizing in advance for my internet connection my tech connection is quite slow today so what you want to do is you want to come up here and register new domain now you may or may not like if you already got a domain you can use your own one but for this example I’m going to be creating a new one I’m going to be creating brewed treats calm chic available because I’m going to make a
ecommerce store designed around coffee items let’s just searching for the domain now it’ll probably be a whole lot faster for you guys it’s only the slow because of my internet connection magic addiction is quite weak here perfect so it’s got our domain name which is exactly what we want now what you need to do is you want to fill in this contact information this contact information is quite private so I’m going to be pausing the video while I
fill it out you can also come down here and for payment you can select to pay with your credit card or with PayPal I’m personally going to be paying with my credit card but you could offer you the book PayPal so I’m just going to pause the video and fill this information and now okay so I’m back here and I filled on my data now one thing you’re gonna notice is that they’re going to have this total of 103 dollars and 60 cents that’s because I’ve
included a bunch of options that you don’t need first option they’ve included here listen here to backup your site daily well you can’t back up your site if you like and I’ve got other services to do that for me I would definitely uncheck this and it’s going to drop the price down a lot the other thing they do is have this thing here you definitely don’t need this you can uncheck this as well and then if you come here you’ll see that they’ve got
domain privacy set up now I personally relight domain privacy I usually include but it’s entirely up to you and if you’re looking to cut costs just uncheck the box next thing they do here we’ll the final thing that they do it’s a little sneaky is they include two years in your hosting plan if you’re just starting out and you want to just try this then I’d recommend that you switch this to be one year then if we calm down you’ll see that your
total is now twenty three dollars and eighty-eight cents it’s a huge saving so come and click check out now that’s just going to register my cap for me perfect this page here is entirely optional you don’t need to fill it out it’ll just click no thanks and then just come to the next page cool and we’re here now on this page they’re trying to upsell you some more it’s one of the things that you get like if you’re going to be getting really cheap
we’re posting like I’m showing you had get they’re going to try to upsell you on all sorts of things that you don’t need just skip on by skip on by and click no thanks we don’t want those we just want our twenty three dollars and eighty-eight seen web hosting and a domain name and once you’ve done all that you’re finished congratulations you now have your hosting and your domain name and it’s just sitting it up now now it’s time for us just to
login to our accounts and we just need to create our account here you’re going to need to set a password to get into your hosting account I would recommend that you make this very strong I have an app called LastPass which does that for me so make sure that you have a strong and usually write down somewhere you’re going to have to create a security question and then give a security out so make sure that it’s legitimate because of the fact that if
you ever have prompting into account it’s going to be very important that you can answer your security question and you can enter in your referral information you can say that you came here from wholesale tier that’s absolutely fine but you definitely don’t have to and then you’re just going to click do you agree to the Terms of Service because this information is obviously very private I’m going to pause this video and once I finished it I’m
going to click Save and continue and show you what it’s like on the next page and that’s it once you set up a password you were done make sure that you write that password down somewhere so that you’ve got it say now we’re going to need to be in this control panel for step two so just stay in it just one thing to keep a note is that if you come to the the email account that you see up your I page hosting live they’re going to have given you
really important email over here this email is going to contain your admin username to be able to log in to your web hosting account so keep that in mind that your admin username has been sent to and this has been included in this email and the password that you set up earlier is going to be the password that you use to also log in to your control panel on to step two and still in WordPress for those of you that don’t know WordPress is a powerful

come here and click run the setup wizard and let’s click let’s go on this page here they’re just telling you that you’re going to need some essential pages obviously for your store to work you’re going to need to have a shop page you’ll need to have a card you going to type of checkout you’re going to have to have a my create so these are going to be automatically created for you by WooCommerce but don’t worry because you can always edit these
yourself and the pages and you can control which pages are shown in your dashboard so we’re just going to come and we’re going to click continue to go on to the next step so now when you set up our parents and things like that so select for your stores going to be based I am going to be basing mine out of Auckland New Zealand even though I’m going to be aiming my products worldwide you now need to slip the currency beer store even though I’m
going to be having my store technically based in New Zealand because I’m based in New Zealand they’ll be working with US dollars because Levesque I’m going to be aiming most or mostly at people in the United States next to drop shipping but it’s entirely up to you so click continue here you can set up your taxes I’m based in New Zealand and I’m going to be selling most of the people outside of New Zealand so I will not have any sales tax
obligations and they’re in that way so I am going to not sleep this and this one here will you be shipping products I am personally not going to be shipping the physical goods to my customers because I’m going to be drop shipping so I’m going to keep this untouched but again it would be entirely up to you and then you click continue and here you select how you’re going to be accepting your payments now as you can see you can accept payments with
PayPal and this is what I would recommend because it allows you get your money very very fast and basically instantly so what you will need to do is you will need to enter your PayPal address into this box here you can also select to accept offline payments so you could offer check utility payment through cheque or your cash on delivery or through a bank transfer for most of you guys out there I would probably recommend that you only select
PayPal unless perhaps maybe if you’ve got say an eBay store where you registry only based on your relisting the same items that you’re selling on there on your own website and if you normally accept cash on delivery or bank transfers with that and you could accept that here now I’m going to enter in my PayPal address into this but because it’s quite sensitive information I’m going to be pausing this video and then once I’m done I’m going to be
clicking continue and then I will show you what it’s like on the other side all right guys I filled my PayPal information I click continue and this is the page that you get sent to after that now what we want to do is we want to click return to WordPress dashboard because we’re going to go ahead and move on to the next thing now that will set up our store settings it is time to add the products this is probably the most time consuming part of
starting your own online store but it’s well worth it and I encourage you to stick with it I’m going to switch back to my computer and you the step-by-step instructions on how you can add products to your new online store awesome so now it’s time to add products now the first thing we want to do is you want to create categories for our products so come over here to products and click categories adding a category is really easy come here to name
and type in the name of your category so I’m going to assign coffee cup so I’m gonna put coffee cups now you need to add what’s called a slug ivory can be making this the exact same as the name so mine is going to be coffee up in low case coffee cups and then you just come here and click add new product category and if we come up here we can see that we have added a new product category so I’m going to go ahead and add in another one I’m going to
be selling coffee tempis so under siphon off the campus and then come here to slug and in lower case I’m going to be writing coffee tampers again and then I’m going to come down here and click add new product category and here we go we can see that we have successfully added the mixed category so now that we’ve added a product categories we need to set up what our stripping options are going to be for our products so come here to Luke immerse and
click settings here we want to now click on shipping now here we can modify the different shipping options that we’ve got I’m personally only going to be having free shipping available because of the fact that my drop shipper is going to have free shipping but you can modify this based upon what your shipping requirements are going to be so the way that I’m going to enable free shipping is I’m going to come here and I’m going to click enable
shipping I’m going to get rid of the shipping calculator because of the fact that it doesn’t matter since it’s going to be free anyway the shipping destination I’m going to have a set to default to shipping address now down here you can see that you can restrict the locations you ship – if we click on the spun here we can see the locations that were going to sow – because right now it’s saying it’s restricting the locations – all the countries
that we sell – obviously we’ll see other live shipping so I’ve right now got its it that I’m selling to all countries but you can restrict the countries that shopping – as you can see in my general options I have my base location as New Zealand and I am selling to all countries so right now WooCommerce is set up for me to ship to the entire world but obviously if you didn’t want to do that if you want the ship to say only within the United States
you could see at that so right now you need to go through and manually select which of the different shipping options you’re going to have so you can sleep with your going to a flat rate shipping free shipping international flat rate local delivery local pickup see if we go to flat rate shipping you’ll see that it is not enabled by default you would have to select this to enable it and then you’d have to fill out all of the details for it but
again I’m only going to be offering free shipping so I’m just going to come over here so I’m going to come here and click on enable free shipping my method title you can change what it’s going to look like to the user I’m just going to call it free shipping mister availability you can select which countries it’s going to be available to so right now it’s it up to all allowed countries and for me all around all allowed countries as worldwide but
could set it up for specific countries now you can set it up so that there is a special requirement for free shipping you can require that they need a valid coupon minimum order but I’m going to have it set up so that everyone gets free shipping a matter what no matter what they order and then I’m just going to come and select Save Changes perfect now I have free shipping enabled on my East or now sign to add the individual products so we want to
come over to the products tab and we want to click Add products so start out by putting in your product name I’m going to be putting in the Whirlpool self stir mug because that is the name of my item next thing that you want to do is you want to come to the product category and you want to select what the category is the item you’re selling so I’m going to select two coffee cups now we want to come down here and we want to enter in the product
data the first thing we want to do is you want to come and we want to click on this now we want to see at what we also want to add what type of product it is so there’s simple product group products affiliate product all variable products most of you are going to be going attention to simple product or variable product simple product as if you’ve got only one type of the item variable product as if you’ve got say something that has multiple color
options or multiple sizes this coffee cup has four different colors so I’m going to click variable products next thing you want to do is you want to enter in your SKU if you have one if you’re just starting out you probably don’t have one but because this is just an example store and this is ins natural out of my cell I don’t have an SKU so going to come and click on inventory on the inventory screen you can slick to manage stock this is
important if you’ve only got say five items in stock you will definitely want to enable the stock management so you just click on that here then you would add in the stock quantity you could select to allow back orders I would suggest that you don’t add back orders unless your experience of doing this you can also select it so that people can only purchase items individually I am going to be drop shipping and so I don’t have stock so I’m going to
deselect this and then I’m going to click on shipping here if you have an item that has a shipping option like flat rate or something like that beer and the price of it is determined by the weight and the size of the item this is where you fill out that information now I’ve offered free shipping for all of my products because my dropship it has free shipping so I’m going to ignore this but you could into that if we come here we can check out what
linked products is this here is actually a really great option once you’ve got lots of products added into the system up sells our products that get recommended to your customer when there are a when they’re looking another product so if someone is looking here at my whirlpool self stir cup I could have other products listed below it saying you might like this very similar to what Amazon do and then cross selves are products that appear to the
user when they’re at the part and say hey as you bind us would you like this item here this can be a great way to earn extra money I don’t have other items currently edited to my store so I can’t select any up sales across sales but I would suggest that you do that now this attributes tab is very important this is how we’re going to be setting up the different types of variable products that we’ve got so come and click Add so get started adding a
prote a tribute come over here to name so if you were selling different sizes of t-shirts here you would put sizes I’m selling different colors of mugs so I’m going to type in color now you want to enter in the different types of sizes or colors that you have so for me I am selling black black muck now you do a space and you do what’s called a pipeline which is the symbol and then I’ll type x1 which is red and then I’m selling three and then I’m
selling yellow not you want it to be habit sleep to be visible on the product page and you also want to click use for variations and then you want to click Save attributes now you want to come you’ll want to click on variations and then we want to come up here to add variation and then we want to put select create variations from all attributes and click go yes I do want to do that click OK on that’s on that view and it’s Ted said that four

afternoon us before mode notice before that the general tab previously had the price for the item available on it then when I selected variable product the price option disappeared that’s because we need to set the individual price for each variation so you want to come and you want to set to your regular price so for me I’m going to have my item on sale and I’ll show you how to do that okay I’m going to come and slip my regular price is $24.99
then I’m going to come and slip the sale price this is the price that it’ll be available for for anyone if they want to purchase it and it’s going to have a nice big sale light so I put $19.99 toxeus is what stock status is in stock which is perfect I’m not going to bother sitting any weight or dimensions for mine and then that’s all good I’m going to click Save Changes now just need to go through and do its for each individual one so it will

want to finish off by coming to the Advanced tab now on the Advanced tab you can see you consider purchase note menu order one thing I would suggest that you do is you uncheck enable reviews I personally don’t like to have views on my website like that so I’m going to uncheck them again it won’t open but it is entirely up to you whether you have reviews but I’m going to deselect them now we want to come and we want to figure out what the layout
is going to be I would suggest that you click this one here which is going to enable a full page width layout then we come to the product description I’ve already got a product description saved to my clipboard so I’m just going to paste that in right now as you can see it’s quite big now you’ve got lots of options when you are sorry modifying a description you’ve got lots of different things here to make it really easy for you so I’m going to be
doing bullet points and I’ll show you my bullet points now I have organized my description so that it reads very similarly to what Amazon do so it starts out with a little mini well there actually have that but my ones going to start out with a little mini blurb to get people interested it’s going to be followed up by some bullet points like this which and then it’s going to come down here where I’m going to have titles this here then make this
bold because it’s a title this one here as a title so come here and you make it bold yeah spruce yourself with that different colors OOP so it comes in four colors read black yellow and green they are all and then quite free worldwide shipping which I’ve noticed clap which I’ve noticed yeah so this here and here we go I have my product description set up the next thing that we want to do is you want to come up here and we want to add products to

product gallery the ones here that I checked are going to be and then click Add to gallery and then as you can see I’ve now got images set up for my product gallery now I want to select an image that’s going to be our featured image so come and click set product image and then I’ve got my 1 over 41 uploaded but we’re just you could come here and click upload files and select the image you want I want this to be my main one and then we will sit
prep image excellent now we have our image set up now we have successfully created our first product all what you to do is click publish I’m going to show you a preview of what our product is going to look like here the product page that we have created so if we take a look see we’ve got our title here we’ve got this big sale thing here with the sale prop with the sale price and the regular price crossed out we’ve got our image that we selected
to be a main image here and we’ve got our different gallery with our different images and if you click on the image it pops up here and it’s nice and big you can see that we’ve got the description that we added and I add in a bullet points and the bullet points are here and if we come down you’ll be able to see that we have our color options and a user can just come in or a customer can come in and slits and options they can select red and then
they could just click Add to Cart so we have successfully set up our first product we now just need to go and click publish then we’ll have first new products on our store perfect so now we have a new product I’m not going to teach you how to add a simple product so a product that’s never variation so come and click Add product up here hi Justin so I’m going to start up by clicking there typing in my product name sorry my product name is travel
camera mug I’m going to come down here and click coffee-cups is my product category then I’m going to come to my product data now I’ve got a simple product and it’s not virtual and it’s not downloadable I don’t have any scale for mine my regular price for this is 20 see I will be at $24.99 and then my sale price for solving $19.99 so if we come and click on the inventory tab I don’t need to enable stock management it is so it is in stock sorry
and I’m not they don’t require them to be sold individually I’m going to ignore the shipping because of the fact that I’ve got free shipping for linked products I might as well sit up an upsell for the one that I’ve got already so my last one my old mug here will work it doesn’t have the word coffee in it and monk click that yeah so now the use now the customer will see I will pull substr mug as an upsell and as a cross sell now if we come here
to attributes I don’t need to setup a custom product attribute because of the fact that I am not selling variable products you can optionally if you so want and then come here to advanced I am going to disallow reviews by clicking on that then I’m going to come down here to the layout and I’m going to select this one again to have full a full wood page layout now we come to the product description again I’ve got a product description for this
product saved to my clipboard so I’m going to paste that M now I’m going to go through and eat it at once again so just like before I have a I have a little blurb to start with and then I have bullet points and then I have more information down here so I’m gonna do love us one of the really nice things about doing it in a similar way to what Amazon do by having bullet points and a separate product description is that it allows you to get further
mileage out of the different out of all the different things you say so at the start you can see you know this product it’s safe and it’s got these features that make it really safe to use and then later on you can in once again say oh this products safe that’s great to use in the description by having bullet points with the different things you can make yeah I can say big capacity here and then later on I can say in the description I can be like
oh it’s got this is the sizing so I get extra mileage out of it so we’ve got this here I’m making that bold and then I’m adding in some more bullet points here then this if you want to know how long your description should be I would recommend it be at least 400 words just because that is something that Google Ari like they like to see that a page has at least 400 words on it so if you want to get a google search engine traffic having your proto
description be at least 400 words is going to really help now add the feature image for the product so I’m going to click set product image and come to upload files click sleept files and then I’ll find my products this one here is going to be my feature image so I’m going to upload that now now it’s uploaded I’ll click set product image excellent now come to add product gallery images and then we’ll come and we’ll select upload files click
select files now something I did accidentally earlier was I included the thumbnail image worth my gallery images you don’t need to do this come and select the other images the extra images click upload perfect we’ve got them here we’ll click add to gallery now we’ve got our product image galleries so let’s check out the product that we just created oh I’m sorry guys I just had a realization um I’m going to come down here and go to late products
and I’m going to remove this as an upsell alright by clicking this button here because of the fact that I realized my product description is actually a little bit too big so with that it might kind of mess up the page design don’t worry don’t worry about it anyway come and click preview and we’ll preview a new thing here we go so this is the product that we have created we’ve got the title here we’ve got the sale price we’ve got the description
that I created and we’ve got the product images so this one here you can click this one here and open it up and the gallery we can click through the different images in that gallery that we selected and yes we can come down here we can click Add to Cart and we’ve got released products here even though we deselected over here to have the upsell you don’t need to worry about this basically what happens is that if the description is longer than the
images then it kind of misses it up a little bit so I’ll show you what I mean we’ll just lick the will pull softer mug and then we’ll come and we’ll click preview you’ll see that the design it’s a little bit messed up see it sees you here and then if we come down you may also like and then the product and the product is down there so what I would suggest is that if you’re a description is going to go longer than the image that you calm down and
that you don’t have an upsell and even though you don’t have an upsell it’s still going to show related products anyway down here but it’s not going to mess up your design so hopefully that’s a nice little tip for you obviously for you now to do is to come and click publish once you click publish it loads up you’re going to have your new products added so I’ve shown you how to add a product with a variation and then it showed you how to add a
simple product I’m now going to pause the video and I’m going to add in a bunch more products that I’m going to be utilizing throughout this tutorial alright as you can see I have added in some extra test products for us to use for the rest of this tutorial and we’re now going to move on to the next step so now that we’ve added our products it is time to customize our homepage and doing this is really easy we’re going to be creating a simple
clean homepage that looks professional let me switch back to my computer and show you how exactly to do this so the first thing we’re going to do is we’re going to edit our homepage now what you want to do is you want to come over to this here and click pages next you want to come up here and click add new come here to this and type in homepage in once you’ve done that leave everything else blank actually we’ll come here and we will click this
button here sorry so come here click that then come and click publish now we have created our homepage we now need to set this as our home page to do that come over here come to settings and then click reading now you want to come to this and you want to select this button you want to come to front page and you want to find home page that is the page that we created earlier now come down and click Save Changes now you have selected your home page
to be the main front page of the home page for your website we just need to go in now in intercepts so let’s come back to our home page come here and click pages come find your home page which you can see has now been set to the front page and click Edit the first thing I’d recommend that you do as you get rid of this get rid of homepage because it looks really ugly when you take a look at the home page that you created if you have a title there
now what you can do is you can come to this box and you can enter in whatever content that you’re going to have for your home page so I’m just going to copy and paste in some content that I created in advance one thing I’m going to show you is that how to use this editor here so I want to turn this into a headline the way I’m going to do that is I’m going to come and I’m going to click toolbar toggle then I’m going to come over to paragraph and
I’m going to sleep headline or hitting to look sleep hitting term now I’ll show you what it looks like on the other school it for you so it’s preview changes you will see what we’ve created so far all right so that’s coming along nicely we’ve got some content here and a headline let’s add a banner to it up here and let’s also add here some related products that when people come to the page they can see some products and that helps to make it look
really professional let’s come back and and let’s add a banner to it so I’m going to click enter to make a space then I’m going to click Add media then I’m going to click upload files and then I’m just going to select files and I’m going to find a homepage banner that I’ve already created in advance and I’m going to click open and now it’s just uploading that back for me now I’m going to come here and I’m going to have the alignment set to lift
and I’m going to have it set to be full size this is what I would recommend for you this is a good measurement if you want to create a banner that’s similar to mine size so click insert into Page and now it has added a banner to our homepage so let’s now add in some products to our homepage to make it look really professional to do this we’re going to use what’s called a shortcode if you don’t want a short coders don’t worry you don’t need to you
just need to copy what I do here so come down make a space and then type the son recent products per underscore page equals that I’m going to put eight products I’m going to have eight products showing on my homepage but you could show lists you could show more columns equals four I think four columns looks really professional that is what I would recommend to you now let’s come and let’s preview our new changes going to select preview changes
and we will come here and see how it’s looking awesome so now we have a nice banner here if you come down we’ve got our content and we’ve also got some products but the most recent products that we’ve uploaded here and so we’ve now got a professional-looking homepage it’s time to update the logo but before you update the logo we need to just quickly make sure that we save our changes so come back and click update now we have updated our new
homepage so now we’re going to add a custom logo to the store you may be wondering how you can get your own logo made for you well I recommend that you use a website called Fiverr for this five area is a website with freelancers will sell their services for amazing prices I use it all the time and I strongly recommend it to everyone for just $5 plus a $0.50 transaction fee you can get an amazing logo designed for your new online store I’ve been
using five or four years in fact I’ve actually purchased logos on Fiverr for brands that are now six-figure brands to check out Fiverr for yourself simply click on the link in the video description below but just a disclaimer the logo that I’m using for this example is not one that I had made on Fiverr I just created a quick logo myself for you as an example I’m going to switch back to my computer and show you how easy it is to upload a custom
logo now it’s time to add a custom logo and it’s really easy the first thing you need to do is need to come down here to settings you need to click general now you need to come to the site title you need to make sure that this box is empty if there is anything in this box delete it you now need to come to the tagline and if there’s anything in this box you should also delete it and then you should come down here and you should you should click
Save Changes the next thing that you want to do is you want to come and click Mistel now you want to come here to the custom logo section so I already got a logo upload it but it’s really easy to upload one all you do I need to do is come and click upload then come to upload files and clips click select files from here you want to find the logo that you’ve already created in advance so here’s my logo that I’ve already created in advance once it’s
uploaded click uses custom logo and then your logo will appear here next thing you want to do is make sure that this box is unchecked if it’s check if it’s took like this you should antic it and you should come to this one if this box is tipped like this you then want to uncheck it you then want to come down and click Save Changes now that we’ve added a custom logo let’s check out what it looks like on our new website great so now we have a logo
up here at the top and if we click through to one of the products that we created earlier we’ll be able to see that the logo appears at the top of the screen there and it looks really nice and professional alright so we are almost done we have updated the settings we’ve added products we’ve customized our homepage we’ve even added a custom logo now we just need to add a custom menu so that our website it’s easy to navigate then we switch back to
my computer and show you how exactly to do this now it’s time to set up a menu what I’m going to do is going to come here to appearance and then click menus come over here to the text box and type in a menu name we’ll just put it as main menu because that’s really simple and then we’ll click the Create menu now we can choose to add product or not products to choose to add pages sorry – a menu now if you come over here you’ll see that we’ve got a
bunch of different pages that we can add so we can just tick them we want to do is we want to include this one here this is no title this is our home page so you want to make sure you got that there you want make sure the users can easily access their account so check that one you want to make sure that users can easily access the checkout you want to make sure that users can easily access the cart and you also want to make sure that they can
access the different products which is what the shop pages so go and click Add to menu we can now edit the names of these which we want to do because we definitely don’t want our home page to be called us so click this and then instead of it being called that pulip and once you’ve done that you’ve now got that we wanted in order these in a way that makes sense for the customer so we’ll move shop to the front and we’ll keep put checkout so
actually card sum will be input shakeout up here and we’ll put cards up here as well and we’ll put my account via one thing I might also change is shop because I think that shop is kind of an ugly term for it so we’ll click this and then we’ll type in products now there’s no Save button you move notice to save these just click this once you’ve once you’ve updated your menu and your Crayolas you want it to be come here and click Save menu we now
