How to use WooCommerce

Can I add a shop to my Flothemes website?

Yes, absolutely. You can add a shop and sell products via your Flothemes website, regardless of which theme you use. To create a shop you will need to add a plugin called WooCommerce.

It’s a free plugin, but offers more complex functionality and options as Add Ons. In this article we will cover the basics on how to install and set up the plugin in order to have a functional e-shop on your Flothemes website.

For a more detailed overview on how to customize and exploit its features, please consult the documentation provided by Woocommerce.

Please note that Flothemes Support doesn't cover assistance with setting up the shop, nor customization of the layouts given by WooCommerce.
