Book Description

22 Nov 2013 1782166408 978-1782166405
Building an online store is often considered to be a difficult and complex task. Using the combination of WordPress and the WooCommerce plugin, this is no longer the case. WooCommerce is built using WordPress best practices both on the frontend and the backend. This results in an efficient, robust, and intuitive plugin. Learn to use this strong e-commerce solution and set up your own web shop in just a couple of hours.

Building E-Commerce Solutions with WooCommerce is a practical guide that delivers the knowledge you require to set up and get going with WooCommerce. This book also shows you how to choose a WooCommerce theme and set up different payment methods, in addition to helping you to keep a bird’s-eye view of incoming sales and reviews, stock levels, general store performance, and statistics from the WordPress dashboard.

You will start by installing WooCommerce and exploring the WooCommerce settings. Then, you will move on to creating and adding simple and complex products, and also set up payment and shipping methods. Once your store is up and running, you will learn how to process your orders, look at the reports, and even expand the functionality further with additional plugins. Finally, the book shows you how to choose a WooCommerce theme and adjust the theme settings.

1.0 out of 5 stars Basic would be an understatement 8 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book as I was looking to build a custom WooCommerce theme and learn it's API's to change some - and add other - functionality. This book however is more a reference guide to setting up and configuring WooCommerce rather than a technical guide of how to develop a WooCommerce Theme or add custom functionality.

Most of the content can be worked out yourself using common sense or could be found using a simple google search. Definately not worth the 20 price tag even if I wanted to just understand what WooCommerce settings did.

3.0 out of 5 stars du 11 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback
Given that this book is about extending your WordPerfect website to being able to do transactions, the book falls short on a key point. In several places the narrative reminds the reader that laws could vary across the world. That the readership is global. Like the first chapter, which says in one place, "tax laws and calculations differ from country to country and region to region". So what is the problem? In chapter 4, which looks at payments, it says there is a Payment Cards Industry compliance. So "if you let your customers enter their credit card details directly on your website, you must be PCI compliant. If you're not, you're running an illegal business".

Say what?? Illegal is defined on a country basis. Is the author's statement really true in every country? Doubtful. The book could have been better written if the text had expanded on that quote. If only to describe the status of major countries with respect to whether you, the website owner, really needed to be PCI compliant.

The statement is also dubious because the text goes on to say that WooCommerce offers a paid service to let you "legally" let your website visitors type their credit card numbers when you are not PCI compliant. A cynical view is that the text is taking an alarmist tone to steer business towards WooCommerce.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well written guide, though theres nothing outside the lines 13 Jan 2014
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this hoping to learn WooCommerce from a developers perspective - I found it well written as a clear guide but nothing unique or advanced which cannot be learned in the official documentation or beginner tutorials found in the usual spaces. I'd recommend this as a good 'overall' reference - but its not for intermediate or advanced users hoping to extend their knowledge.
