You’ve probably heard of WooCommerce, the famous eCommerce solution created by the WordPress team. This content management system (CMS) is used by sites like Shopify, Big Commerce, and Bonjoro. It can be very useful for small businesses that want to sell their products online. One of its strongest selling points is how user-friendly it is compared to other eCommerce software. In fact, WooCommerce is so easy to use that even non-techies can set it up in a few minutes.
But did you know that there is another incredibly useful and easy-to-use eCommerce solution called JoomShopping? This solution is ideal for anyone who wants to do most of the work themselves and doesn’t need an in-house or dedicated IT staff. It’s completely free, and it has an extremely easy API that allows developers to easily integrate it into their own applications.
So if you’re looking for an eCommerce solution that is both easy to use and powerful, then JoomShopping is the one for you.
Create An Account
To try JoomShopping, you first need to create an account. This account will be your electronic storefront. Once you have created an account, click on the “admin” link at the top of the page to begin the setup process.
You will be landing on the dashboard where you can configure various options for your site. From here, you can choose your storefront’s name, domain, and logo, along with setting the default currency and language. You can also choose whether you want the store to be public or private. A private store is attractive to shoppers who want to keep their purchase information private, while a public store is great for advertising.
When finished, click the “Save Settings” button at the top right corner to continue to the main page.
Now that you have a basic site up and running, you can begin adding products. To do this, click the “Store” link at the top of the page to access the WooCommerce plugin. Once you are inside the WooCommerce plugin, click the “+” symbol in the top right corner to open the Add New Product window.
In this window, you can search for and add any product you like. Just make sure that the product you look for is actually available in the JoomShopping store. After you’ve added a product, you can either click the “Add to shopping cart” button to add the product to your shopping cart or click the “Get Code” button to retrieve the product’s code.
The product’s code will be needed to complete the purchase of the product. Once you have the code, manually enter it in the appropriate places in the checkout process.
The WooCommerce checkout process is incredibly simple and straight-forward. Just click the “Checkout” button on any individual product that you’ve added to your cart, and follow the steps that appear. You will be traveling through four primary steps: Review, Confirm, Pay, and Submit.
The Review step allows you to leave a review for the product that you’ve explored. This review will appear on your storefront and can be used by customers to learn more about the product or service. For example, if you’ve tried out a new skin care product and leave a review explaining which products are best for which skin types, other people looking for products for their skin can learn from your review which products to avoid.
The Confirm step is necessary because when you added the product to your cart, you were probably asked to enter a credit card. Now that you’re at the checkout stage, you need to confirm the order by entering another credit card. This card will not be charged until the product is shipped. Some vendors and stores might also require you to click a certain link or button to confirm the order, so be sure to check the order page for any necessary confirmations before submitting your order.
The Pay step is simply filling out a form with your personal and shipping details. You will have to provide a valid email address, and you will have to verify your phone number in case the order is placed from outside the country. After you’ve entered all the required information, click the “Submit Order” button at the bottom of the page to continue to the shipping step.
When an order is submitted, you will be presented with a shopping cart. This cart contains all the products that the customer has in their order. Just like you entered a product’s code for it in the checkout process, you can click the “code” button next to a product to view its individual page, where you can find its code or to edit its information.
The cart also contains a summary of the order. This is very useful for tracking the order’s progress. From here, you can edit the order’s information, such as change the currency or stock level, or cancel the order.
Click the “My Orders” link at the top of the page to view all the orders placed by the customer, or click the “View Active Orders” link to view orders that are currently being processed. You can also find links to the customer’s account and to the shipping provider. If there’s an issue with an order, you can contact the customer through the system.
To edit an order, click the “Edit” button next to the order number, or you can click the “Order details” link under the “My Orders” header. You can also click the “+” symbol in the top right corner to add another product to the order.
When an order is submitted, you will be presented with a shipping window. This window contains all the shipping information for the order. From here, you can choose a shipping method, and you can choose whether you want to ship worldwide or just within the United States.
You can also look at the order’s summary for the shipping information. This is very useful for keeping track of all the shipping information.
You can access the admin area of your store by clicking the “Reports” link at the top of the page. This area contains various reports that can be used to track products and sales. For example, you can create a report that shows you the top selling products and how much revenue you’re losing due to missing inventory.
You can also create a report that shows you which products have the highest sales volume and are therefore the most profitable. You can use this report to determine which products to carry in-house and which products to outsource to.
You can use these reports to track the performance of your store, and you can use the information to make intelligent decisions. For example, you might decide to reduce the inventory of a certain product that lacks profitability, or you might decide to increase the inventory of a product that is proving to be extremely successful. Either way, tracking sales figures and performance is essential in understanding the business and assessing its future.
You can use the reports available in the admin area to track orders, sales, and performance, or you can use third-party tools like Google Analytics to track these aspects of your website.
If you’re looking for a way to easily find and collaborate with other businesses that provide similar services, then the vendor area of your store is the place to be. Click the “Vendors” link at the top of the page to access this area.
Here, you can find and connect with businesses that you might need to work with in order to succeed in this industry. For example, you might decide that you need a custom WordPress theme to make your site more user-friendly and recognizable. To find and collaborate with a designer that can create the perfect theme, click the “Vendors” link and type “WordPress theme” in the search bar. You will then see a list of businesses that provide WordPress themes as well as various other products and services that might be useful for your store.
WordPress is a widely-used CMS that is both free and open-source. This means that anyone can access the software code and review the way it works. As a result, you might find that some parts of your site need to be updated or fixed. You can look to the WordPress community for assistance in fixing any issues that you might come across.
