This video is part of our old WP eStore Course Go to our Updated WP eStore Course for current videos.
In this lesson we are going to download and install WP eStore for WordPress. You can get there easily by going to this Lesson 3 page. As you know all of our e-commerce lessons have their own page. This is the main e-commerce page and then if you click on Lesson 3 you come to this lesson page. If you select here on the right hand side under Lesson 3 resources, WP eStore takes you to the Tips & Tricks HQ website where you can purchase this product. This is actually the sales page and they have a good description of everything that’s in the plugin. We will, of course, go through the majority of those here through the course of this class.
If you scroll down here to the bottom though you can find the purchase or Add to Cart. You can come down here and buy the plugin – Add to Cart and go through the purchase process. Once you have purchased this you will be given a download link, or you will be sent a download link that will allow you to download this software. That download link is similar to what WP eStore will send out when someone purchases something like that from you. So go ahead and go through that process and then come back here when you’re finished.
I’m assuming that you have purchased and downloaded Tips & Tricks HQ WP eStore plugin. Now what we’re going to do is we’re going to come on over to our website and install. I want you to go to your e-commerce website and log in to your Dashboard. This is the e-commerce website that I’ll be installing this on. Scroll down here to the section Plugins and hit Add New, what we’re going to do is we’re going to use this feature. Select Upload, choose a file and then what you need to do is to go to the section where you saved that file (in my case it’s saved under Downloads) and we will scroll down here until we find the folder called wp-cart-for-digital-products.zip. Now that we have chosen that file let’s go ahead and select Install Now and activate the plugin.
Now that the plugin is installed we can scroll down here to the bottom and you can see that there’s this options menu. We will be going through all of these option menus in the course of this class.
