Adding an eCommerce Store

Set­ting up an eCom­merce store is an increas­ing­ly way of mak­ing mon­ey online. The good news is that Heap offers inte­gra­tion with WooCom­merce — the most pop­u­lar plu­g­in that allows you to cre­ate a shop on your Word­Press web­site. In this arti­cle, we’ll show you how to set up an online store where you can list and sell both phys­i­cal and dig­i­tal prod­ucts.

Install WooCommerce plugin and start the Setup Wizard

One of the great­est things about WooCom­merce is that it’s not just the most pow­er­ful tool to cre­ate a shop, but their authors con­stant­ly improved the way of use and they made it incred­i­bly user-friend­ly. Right after the plu­g­in is acti­vat­ed, a Set­up Wiz­ard starts and you just have to fill in the required details The Set­up Wiz­ard takes care of every­thing for you — it cre­ates the Shop pages, helps you add all the details about the Shop, about the prod­ucts and the pay­ments and it even gives you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to import demo prod­ucts, so you can have a start­ing point for your shop. 

All these details can be edit­ed when­ev­er you want by going to your Word­Press Dash­board at WooCom­merce → Set­tings sec­tion. Also, it’s good to know that the entire Set­up Wiz­ard can be re-start­ed if need­ed. To do that, when you are on WooCom­merce Dash­board, click on Help But­ton from the top bar and click Set­up Wiz­ard but­ton (video cap­ture).
