I am a WooCommerce professional. WooCommerce is the latest ecommerce software to hit the world by storm – and I am riding that tidalwave like Laird Hamilton.
Whether you’re operating a superstore selling thousands of products, or a just a sole trader selling hand made arts and crafts WooCommerce has you covered. You can keep a birds-eye view of incoming sales and reviews, stock levels and general store performance and statistics all from the CMS we talked about above.
Sell Anything… Properly.
Whether it be t-shirts in all their shapes and sizes, music files or software. Even affiliated products from a marketplace. It’s all possible. It comes with PayPal (for accepting credit card & PayPal account payments) but we’ve also got heaps of specific payment gateway extensions.
Set up shop with the options of offering free shipping, flat rate shipping or table rate shipping. Easily manage your digital or physical products with an intuitive user interface. Rest assured your shop will scale with your growth. You can even assign store managers to handle the day to day inventory management.
Oh yeah, tax is the last thing you want to think about when opening a shop and the last thing you want to overlook. Don’t worry – there’s a whole bag of tricks dedicated to making that simple, too.
How does this sound?…
Someone goes to your website, places an order, a few seconds later they get an email through that says something like ‘Hi [firstname], thanks for your order of [stuff they ordered], here is the order number and reference… if you have questions or need to change your order click here to get in touch‘.
Then once payment is confirmed a little later, they get another email which is a receipt for their payment.
Meanwhile you receive an email saying something like ‘[customers first name] has just placed an order for [stuff they ordered] [their address] [whatever other details you’d like]. [Order number], [reference] etc
All you need to do is get the stuff they ordered, send it to their address, log into your website, check a box that marks it as dispatched. Then another email is sent to them saying something like ‘your order [order no] has been dispatched, thanks again, click here to buy more stuff.
The only thing you need to do is dispatch it and then tell the website you dispatched it, all the communication is taken care of, allowing you more time to do more important things, like dispatching the next order.
