Online WooCommerce Training Course

Online WooCommerce Training Course Overview

The FLOSSNet 1-day practical WooCommerce Training Course will equip you with knowledge and skills to build a professional online store from scratch on your harddrive complete with products, shopping cart, checkout, payment gateway, and shipping.

WooCommerce can also be set up as a catalogue with no prices and no checkout. You will receive an e-mail with the products customers are interested in, at which point you can send them an order/invoice.
