Good afternoon everybody and welcome to this special seminar on Integrating WooCommerce with Thesis 2. I’m very excited to be able to present this because this is something that’s been on my radar since WooCommerce came out.
Plugin Allows WooCommerce to Integrate with Thesis Theme 2
I’ve always been in a hunt for a good eCommerce plugin to teach and as you probably know from my site, I’ve taught a couple of them. WooCommerce was never capable of working properly with Thesis and it certainly wasn’t capable of working properly with Thesis 2. But along comes Serge and he has written a plugin that allows WooCommerce to communicate with Thesis 2 and vice versa. So that’s what we’re going to be demonstrating here today.
Why BYOB Website Supports 3 eCommerce Solutions
What this means for BYOBWebsite is that I will be supporting 3 different eCommerce solutions for Thesis 2 and for Genesis. I’ll be supporting WP eStore for digital products, MarketPress for physical products and WooCommerce for physical products.
The rationale for supporting more than one eCommerce platform is that different types of sites have different kinds of requirements. Some people need down and dirty fast solutions, some need an inexpensive solution, some need a solution that will have great looking catalog pages, some people just need BuyNow buttons.
And each of these products are different in those areas and have different features. I wouldn’t suggest using WP eStore in a case where WooCommerce is going to shine and vice versa.
Where to Find the Integrator Plugin
But today we’re going to be talking about WooCommerce and we’re going to be talking about this WooCommerce Thesis Integrator Plugin. Now, you can find this plugin over here at woocommerce-thesis-integration.com.
You can come over here to the Seminar page and there’s a link on the Seminar page saying, “Get the WooCommerce Integrator Plugin Here” so you don’t actually have to remember that but if you wish to write it down, that’s the site where you can get the Integrator plugin. So, when it comes time for you to make a purchase and come over here and take a look at this plugin, this is where you’re going to find it.
Discount Available for BYOB Website Members
Now, I am not an affiliate of this product and in lieu of being an affiliate, I asked Serge if he would give my members a discount. And so, there will be a discount code for paying members that you’ll find here on the Seminars page. I put a dummy one in here now but the coupon code will be here on the seminar page. If you’re a premium member and you’re logged in, you’ll be able to see that coupon code. We’re doing that in lieu of me being an affiliate because I’d rather you guys get a discount.
