Lesson 3: Setting Up An Online Store
Adding a Woocommerce Store
WooCommerce is a customizable, open-source eCommerce platform built on WordPress. WooCommerce has become the most popular eCommerce software in the world because it’s relatively easy to use, is open-source and comes with powerful features.
Unlike Shopify, Woocommerce itself is a free tool. Any associated costs are going to come from the service extensions you purchase for added functionality and automation. Most small stores can get away with avoiding paid services.
