How to Make a Professional eCommerce Website with WordPress (A Step-by-Step Video Guide)
Creating your own online eCommerce shop can be hugely profitable — and if you’ve already decided to use WordPress to do it*, well done: you’ve chosen an excellent platform!
But how best to get started? Where do you begin? Where and how should you buy a domain name and hosting? Which theme should you choose? Which plugins should you use? Etc, etc!
To help out, we’ve put together a seriously extensive step-by-step guide on all you need to know (and do) to make your own fully-functional professional online eCommerce store — using WooCommerce (by far and away the most popular — and all-round best — eCommerce plugin for WordPress).
What makes this video so special is essentially three things: 1. that this is exactly how we ourselves would go about creating an online shop of our own; 2. the level of detail we go into (the video is well over two hours long!) — note: in the video we create an entire example eCommerce website — from scratch; and 3. that the video is aimed at complete beginners — folk who very likely haven’t done anything like this before.
By simply following along, by clicking where we click, and with a little thought put into changing a few aspects to suit your own particular goals, you’ll be able to make a similarly great (and technically superb) online store — from start to finish — for yourself!

*By far the best to platforms with which to create an eCommerce site, in our opinion, are Shopify (great for those who aren’t already comfortable with WordPress, want to keep things simple, and aren’t likely to want anything more than the norm later down the line) and WordPress (slightly more of an initial learning curve than Shopify, but much much more customizable) – read more on the comparison here.
