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 restarted if needed. To do that, when you are on the WooCommerce Dashboard, click on Help Button from the top bar and click Setup Wizard button (video capture).
