Becky Davis – E-Commerce in WordPress

  • Sep 10, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come on out September 10 at 7PM when our own co-organizer, Becky Davis will present "E-Commerce in WordPress." Even if you are not in WordPress land, this session will help you gain insight into the process behind building any e-commerce website!

Installing a shopping cart plugin and adding products is the easy part. Figuring out which plugin is the best for your needs and getting all the information needed in place is the tricky part. Do you have good consistent web-ready images? How are you handling shipping? Do you have a merchant account, payment gateway and SSL certificate in place? Does the business have a plan in place for how to handle orders and more importantly, how to handle exceptions? This is a must see presentation whether you're developing a site for a client or thinking about selling products on your own site.

It's back to school time, eh folks? See you in September and Happy Labor Day.

    Good information on the preparation and planning with clients. Becky also took some of the mystery out of payment gateways and SSL.

    Fantastic! A wonderful overview on the appropriate questions to ask before leaping into this world. Becky's insights of first hand experience proved truly valuable and I'm incredibly glad I came before starting my first ecommerce project next month! Thanks, Becky!

    Becky Davis presentations are always extremely valuable and security is one of the 1st things I'll address when starting to use WordPress.

    Hello.. I'm newer to the area and not very familiar with Evanston. How is the parking situation in this area? Thanks!

      Amanda, parking is plentiful at BooCoo. There is street parking and most always the high school parking lot is open to our use. It is across the street.
