Great book to start an E-Commerce website

 on June 11, 2013
By ManCalledHorse
If only I had this book years ago! All the questions of “How can I’s” have been answered in as long as it took me to read this book. I learned how to setup a decent webstore to sell tangible items, but digital items too!

Dont start an E.Commerce site without this book to help you fill in the gaps.

I bought this book only just in time not to really mangle the setting up of an E.Commerce site. It really does cover all eventualities , and is essentially a guidebook for the structuring of a good site , a reminder of what you actually need , and a library of web addresses that are never superfluous . I use several books , but always check this one first.

The book doesn’t bring much more than what you can discover by yourself.. Anyway, it’s a book is always much better rather than a pdf or the help that can find on internet… Well structured, with hints and tips.. The problem is not really the book but the limits of this plugin and WordPress… i have tried several e-commerce plugin and none of them can help for a real e-commerce site. (Inernational i mean)

Tons of helpful info

Practical filler for documentation gaps

This book provides step-by-step instructions for setting up the WP e-Commerce plugin, a popular and feature-rich application for adding an online store to WordPress. Unfortunately, the plugin itself lacks adequate documentation, so a book like this can save time and a lot of frustration. The author has included many thoughtful screenshots to illustrate his detailed tutorials. Thorough chapters on payment and shipping options are particularly valuable for filling informational potholes that are likely to trip up the uninitiated.

WordPress 2.9 e-Commerce is an excellent overview of how to step up an online store using WordPress. It covers all the basics from creating and managing a product catalog, to managing users, setting up checkout and payment, and dealing with shipping. The book provides instruction on how to install and configure the WP e-commerce plugin, critical to performing e-commerce within WordPress. It compares and contrasts online payment gateways such as PayPal, Google Checkout and Chronopay to help users understand the similarities and differences between the systems and choose which one is right for them.

There Is More To WordPress than Just Blogging

There are lots of people who just assume that WordPress is all about blogs. That can’t be further from the truth. It can actually be used to start a powerful e-commerce store. This book is a proof for that. It’s a very well written and easy to follow book that gets you familiar with the basics of WordPress e-commerce. Best of all, you do not have to be a PHP or WordPress guru to get started with this book.
