Learn how to sell your products from your own WordPress website with this eCommerce seminar series and our eCommerce courses.  We discuss all aspects of setting up an eCommerce website using WordPress – from a simple store selling a single product to a large online store for a traditional brick and mortar business.

Most of the instruction in these sessions will work with any WordPress theme. However, we will also discuss particulars for setting up stores in both the Genesis theme and the Thesis theme.

We will have a series on MarketPress as well at a later date. MarketPress is a very powerful eCommerce solution for WordPress as it is ideal for selling physical products with complex shipping and tax requirements. If you are using MarketPress now or want to begin using it, we have a collection of boxes and packages designed to work perfectly with Thesis 2. Visit our MarketPress for Thesis 2 page for more information.

Seminars

How to Choose the Right WordPress Shopping Cart

There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” shopping cart for WordPress. In this seminar we discuss all of the things you need to consider before you choose the shopping cart to sell your products.

Setup and Configure the New PayPal Sandbox for Testing Your Online Store

PayPal’s Sandbox system provides a way to fully test the functioning of your WordPress online store without actually processing financial transactions. Unfortunately most tutorials demonstrating its use are either old and no longer applicable or are focused on developers. This seminar demonstrates the use of the New PayPal Sandbox system for ordinary website owners.

How to Setup Amazon S3 for Storing and Hosting Your Large Files

Amazon S3 is essentially your hard drive in the cloud, it’s a place where you can store and serve files for your website inexpensively and securely. In this seminar we go through all the basics of using Amazon S3.

    Hi Rick – for these seminars – are they recorded or do they become videos on your site afterwards…I would love to attend some but I still have a pesky day job so will be at work when they occur.

    Loving your thesis 2.1 video launch party – I am quite familiar with 1.8.5 and built my main biz site with it (amykozak.com) for my jewelry biz, but am excited to learn 2.1 and use it for my new biz site where I am offering some limited spots for virtual work and WordPress help, virtual admin stuff but more on the techy side which I find fun!

    Thanks!
