  • Making your own webshop these days is easy. My name is Ferdy and in this video I will

  • show you, from start to finish, how to create your own web shop using WordPress and WooCommerce.

  • This video is both for people that already have a wordpress website and want to extend

  • it with a webshop, and for people that want to create a webshop from scratch, who do not

  • have a website yet.

  • Let me show you what we will cover in this tutorial. For the people that start from scratch,

  • I will show you how you can get your own domain name and web hosting, how to install WordPress,

  • and how to install a pre-made website that can be adjusted really easily. After that,

  • we will install WooCommerce --- an amazing free plug-in that enables you to sell products

  • through the Internet. Then we will create six different products. We start with a simple

  • product - just a hoodie. It can also be a cap, something with only one option; in this

  • case, a black hoodie.

  • Then we go to the variable product. What does that mean? It is one product but it can have

  • different variations like the size or the color. It can also say that a certain size

  • or color or something else is more expensive than the other options. Then we will create

  • a digital product, for instance a zoom session or coaching session. We will create a digital

  • downloadable product like an e-book or a ticket to a concert of Justin Bieber or someone else

  • if you prefer.

  • Then an affiliate product. This is a really nice market. You can promote other people's

  • products, and when they click on it, they go to your affiliate link and then when they

  • buy the product you promote, you get a commission. And then the latest one --- a grouped product

  • so you see one product again with different sizes and here I can decide how many I want

  • to have from everything. For each product, we will talk about the configuration options

  • like the price, inventory, categories. After that, you will learn how to configure the

  • shop page; how many columns should it have; how big should the images be, and then here

  • at the side we have a sidebar with widgets and widgets are extra functionalities to your

  • website. So here I can filter the products by price, so if I say, let's see, I want to

  • spend between 0 and 100 dollars and I filter it, then I see all the products that fall

  • into that category.

  • People can get through our categories. We have products on sale and if we add something

  • to the cart, there appears a new widget over here. It shows a subtotal amount and everything

  • we have in our cart. The same is available over here. So if I hover over here, I see

  • that and then I can view the cart or go to the checkout. If I view the cart, we see a

  • beautiful overview over here with everything we have in our cart and I can adjust it over

  • here. I can change this to 3, this one to 2, and I can update the cart. If we scroll

  • down, we see a subtotal over here and because this is the amount more than $100, I decided

  • that the shipping is free. We will talk about shipping based on where people live, based

  • on a subtotal of the cart and based on the weight of everything that is in the cart.

  • We will talk about coupon codes, so I made this $20 dollars and if I apply the coupon,

  • I see we get 20 dollars of discount and here there are a lot of options. You can say by

  • the $20 dollars, you can say percentage, free shipping -- we will go in depth about this

  • subject. We will talk about my favorite subject, not, but it's good to talk about it --- Taxes.

  • How you can set it up manually with different countries, states, normal and reduced tax

  • rates and I will show you how to apply these settings automatically, which is, in my opinion,

  • a much better option.

  • Then we will talk about payment methods so that visitors can go to the checkout page,

  • finish their order and pay money that will be added to your bank account. I will show

  • you how to handle incoming orders and keep your buyers up to date with the progress of

  • the order.

  • When you apply what I teach in this tutorial, you are able to start selling products through

  • the internet. Well I believe that your time is valuable, that's why, I created an overview

  • for you so you can skip certain parts if you have done them already.

  • If you're starting from scratch, I will show you how you can get your own domain name and

  • web hosting and I can offer you a 70% discount. Then we will install WordPress and after that

  • we will import a pre-made website. After that, we're going to create an amazing webshop and

  • if you have done step one. two and three already, take a look at this time stamp and then you

  • can immediately go to the WooCommerce part. In the description of the video I have time

  • stamps, so if you want to go to a certain part of the tutorial, you can click on the

  • timestamp and it will go directly to the part of the tutorial.

  • If I go too fast for you, you can slow down the speed of the video over here. I've been

  • making tutorials for over five years now and people seem to love my videos. I do my best

  • to get better and better, so I can reach more people with my teachings. If you have any

  • question or feedback, feel free to leave a comment below the video. If you like what

  • you're seeing so far, or you think I'm a nice guide, please like this video; subscribe for

  • more upcoming WordPress related videos and when you hit the bell icon next to the subscribe

  • button, you get a notification when I upload a new video. So having said that let's get

  • started.

  • The first things we need are: a domain name and web hosting. If you have that already

  • that is great then you can skip this part. If you don't have it, let's go to webhosting124.com.

  • Then you can click over here to go to siteground is, in my opinion, the best web hosting provider

  • there is. I tried a lot of web hosting companies and I found out that siteground is the best

  • one, and it's not only my opinion that they are the best, there's a Facebook group all

  • about web hosting and every year there's a poll with who is the best web hosting provider

  • and siteground is number one every year.

  • The web sites here are super fast, you can call them 24/7 or you can open a chat session

  • with them. I had a few times that I had no idea how to figure something out and then

  • I went to the chat session and within a few minutes they were able to help me. At the

  • chat they can say you should do this and this and this, but they often say let me do it

  • for you if you want to. So the support is amazing. Because Siteground believes in their

  • product and their service, they offer you a 30-day money back guarantee. So if you somehow

  • do not like it, you can get your money back. So there's no risk for you. I don't think

  • you will cancel within 30 days. It's amazing to get a domain name or web hosting through

  • siteground. I host all my websites here and I will walk you through the plans.

  • There are three plans. There's the StartUp Plan, the GrowBig Plan and the GoGeek plan.

  • The startup package is $3.95 per month. In euros, it's the same €3.95. You can have

  • one website, that means one domain, then there's 10 gigabyte of web space which is more than

  • enough and 10,000 visits per month which is also more than enough when you start. You

  • can install WordPress for free --- there's free SSL. What is SSL? With that, your website

  • becomes secure. With other web hosting companies, you need to pay money for that. There's even

  • one where you need to pay $120 per year to get as a SSL. With Siteground it is free.

  • You can have free email addresses like info@yourdomain or ferdy@yourdomain or your own name and your

  • domain, and daily backups. So if you mess up somehow, you can go to the backup of the

  • day before and you're good to go.

  • Then there's the GrowBig plan -- $5.95/month or €6.45 per month. With this plan you can

  • have unlimited websites. What does it mean? Here we can have one website, so one domain.

  • Here it can have unlimited domains, so when you get the web hosting package of $5.95 per

  • month you can buy ten domain names and then create different websites. So that's the great

  • thing about the GrowBig plan. You can have more space, you can have more visitors and

  • if you scroll down a bit, you see, you can have on-demand backups. So you push the button

  • and you get a new backup. If you already have a website, you can have a free site transfer

  • to siteground. You can have staging so you can change things in your website and then

  • push one button and then it goes to the live website. If you want to know more about all

  • these options, you hover over here and you can see them.

  • So what I love the most about the GrowBig plan is that you can have unlimited websites,

  • and then there's the GoGeek plan -- 11.95 dollars or euros and you have more web space,

  • you can have more visitors and there are all those extra options. I personally use this

  • plan because I have a lot of websites and a lot of visitors. But when you're creating

  • your first website, you can choose between the Startup plan and the GrowBig plan. I will

  • go for the GrowBig plan. So I click over here on "Get Plan", and now we can register a new

  • domain name. If you have a domain name already, you can click over here, you can fill in yourdomainname.com

  • and then proceed. I want to register a new domain name and I can choose it over here.

  • So I can say ferdykorpwp (WordPress) and then there's extensions. You can say ".com", ".net"

  • but there are also countering specific extensions like .nl, like .pl, the .co.uk, .es. If you

  • want to go international, I prefer .com, not .net or those other ones, just .com. So be

  • creative, make sure it is available, if it's not available you click on proceed, you will

  • see it is not available. The domain costs $15.95 per month, €14.95 per month and I

  • click on proceed. That says "Congratulations! Domain ferdykorpwp is available for registration

  • with our hosting account." That is amazing!

  • So now, I want to fill in some details over here. I want to leave my best email address

  • over here which is ferdykorp@gmail.com; I need to create a password and I need to confirm

  • my password. Then we scroll down a bit and we go to client information. So first you

  • need to select your country, then your first name, and your last name. If you have a company,

  • you can fill in the details of your company. If you're from the United States, you need

  • to select your state or province, your city, your street address, your zip code and your

  • phone number.

  • Then I scroll down and I go to payment information. So I will fill in my details over here and

  • the great thing is, depending on the country where you live in, their local payment option.

  • So if you're from the Netherlands, you have Ideal, if you're from another country, you

  • can pay with your local payment provider which is what I love about Siteground. My billing

  • address is the same as given in the contact information. I scroll down. We've chosen the

  • GrowBig plan; you can choose your data center --- I choose the USA. If you want to focus

  • on people from Europe or the United Kingdom, you can choose something else. I'll choose

  • the USA. This is important. Here it says period: 12 months. REMEMBER, you get 70% discount

  • here at Siteground but it's only for the first payment period. So if you pay for 12 months,

  • you get a 70% discount for 12 months. If you choose 24 months you get 70% of 24 months.

  • If you choose 36, you get 70% discount on 36 months. The thing is when you say 36 months

  • you need to pay now. So you pay $214.20 and then you have three years of web hosting with

  • the GrowBig plan where you can have unlimited domain names. If you will go for 12 months,

  • then after 12 months, you will start to pay $19.95. I want to be upfront about that.

  • So if you're really sure you want to go for a long time with this domain, then I would

  • suggest you go for the 36 months. If you want to try it out, do a shorter period; then I

  • would say go with 12 months, and after a year, you start paying $19.95 per month depending

  • on the plan. It's not entirely true, because after your first period, you can decide to

  • go for three years with siteground web hosting and then you get 30% of discount. So then

  • you would pay around $14 per month with GrowBig, and $7 per month with the startup plan.

  • If I take a look at what a website means for a business, I know it is worth every penny.

  • So it's up to you, if you want to go for 12 months, 24 months or 36 months. I go with

  • 12 months and then we go to the next step. We register a domain name and then I also

  • suggest you get domain privacy. Why is that? If you don't do this, people will see all

  • this information you have filled in on this page and they will call you, they will email

  • you like hey I can make your website, you can have a business loan if you want to; people

  • start spamming you. You don't want that. For $12 per year, you can get rid of that. You

  • don't need the Siteground scanner, so there's a total of $99.35 and you have a domain name

  • and website for a year. I think this is an amazing deal.

  • What you can do now? You confirm that you've read and agreed to the Siteground Terms of

  • Service and Privacy Policy and you can check this if you want to receive Siteground news

  • and special offers by email. When you get there through webhosting124.com, you don't

  • pay more, but you get the 70 percent discount and I get credit for it. So it's a win-win

  • situation and it helps me to make those tutorials. So thank you for that. I click on 'Pay Now'

  • and now ladies and gentlemen, you have a domain name and web hosting --- congratulations.

  • The next step is to install WordPress. Click on this button with the text 'Proceed to the

  • Customer Area'. And then we see this: Create or Migrate Your Website and then you see your

  • domain name. We click on this orange button to set up our site and here we can start a

  • new WordPress website.

  • So I click on the button below: Start a New Website. Then I choose WordPress even when

  • you want to start a WooCommerce website, still choose WordPress and now we need to set up

  • a login. Here you need to fill in your best email address and create a password. So I

  • will use ferdykorp@gmail.com and my password. Awesome!

  • Then I click on continue. I don't need the site scanner; I have that already. I click

  • on: Finish, and now our website is being created. It will take less than 2 minutes. It says

  • now that your domain has been created and WordPress is installed.

  • So what I want to do now, I want to go to a website. Here's my website and I click on:

  • Site Tools. I want to do one more thing before we go to our WordPress website. I want to

  • make it secure. So here we are at your domain and then there are a lot of options over here.

  • What we can do now, we can click on security and then we click on SSL manager. Our request

  • is being processed.

  • So here you can select your domain, if you have one it's probably already selected. Select

  • SSL and what it says, it's already encrypted. So I need to scroll down, here it is: Manage

  • SSL. My domain already has an encryption certificate. I click on Actions > Enforce HTTPS. I click

  • over here and I need to turn this on and now it's turned on; that's it.

  • So now; what I want to do? I want to go to WordPress > Install and manage. I scroll down.

  • Here we have our domain name, WordPress is installed and I want to take an action by

  • clicking here: Login to the Admin Panel, and we are already logged in.

  • What we need to do now, we need to skip the WordPress starter. So I scroll down and I

  • click on exit, and ladies and gentlemen, we are live. This is the back end of our website.

  • Here we can configure a ton of things. If I click over here, left in top, I go to my

  • website. Everybody that enters FerdyKorpWP.com at this moment will enter my website, and

  • that's a great thing about Siteground, you are live immediately when you get a dot com

  • domain. BUT it looks really bad; it looks really bad. I don't know what do you think

  • about this, but I think this is so ugly.

  • So we're going to make it beautiful but first let me tell you some things about the front

  • end and the back end. This is the front end of your WordPress website; this is what people

  • will see when they enter your website. So we've created a beautiful webshop, people

  • can navigate through your website over here through your domain name. Because we are logged

  • in. We have a bar over here. If I go to FerdyKorp.com, I see no bar. Why? Because I'm not logged

  • in.

  • But here, I am logged in and that's why I see this bar. Through this bar we can toggle

  • between the frontend and the backend. So if I click over here, I go to the backend. Here

  • we can configure our website. We can update our website or plugins, we can create blog

  • posts, add photos, videos, PDFs. We can create pages like the home page, the Contact page,

  • the About Us page. We can manage comments, change the look and feel of our website using

  • themes and widgets. We can add functionality to our website by free or paid plugins.

  • We can add different users; we can export things and import things. We can configure

  • the settings of our website and then if you have a plug-in you can get more options over

  • here. So if I take a look at my own website, I can do a few updates. I have comments I

  • need to manage. There's marketing; jet plugins; more plugins. So the more plugins you have,

  • the more things you see over here and if you click on it, you can configure things. So

  • that's the backend. We're going to talk about it more.

  • Then we have the frontend and that looks like this. So what I want to do? First, I want

  • to clean up our website a little bit because it starts a little bit messy and I want to

  • work in a clean environment.

  • So I click over here. By the way, I can close this now. So this is the back end. What I

  • want to do first? I want to go to plugins and I want to remove all the plugins we have.
