How Does WooCommerce Work?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 5:46 pm

WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin that enables eCommerce features on your WordPress website. WooCommerce is a popular eCommerce platform because it is easy to use and has a lot of features.

Here is how WooCommerce works:

1. You install the WooCommerce plugin on your WordPress website.

2. WooCommerce creates pages for your eCommerce store, such as a shop page, product pages, and a checkout page.

3. You add products to your WooCommerce store.

4. When a customer visits your store and adds a product to their cart, they are taken to the checkout page.

5. On the checkout page, the customer enters their payment information and completes their purchase.

That’s it! WooCommerce handles the rest, such as processing the payment and delivering the product to the customer.

PRO TIP: WooCommerce is a powerful ecommerce tool, but it can be complicated to set up and use. Before using WooCommerce, be sure to read the documentation and understand how it works. Otherwise, you may run into problems with your store.
