Learn the Basics of Shipping in WooCommerce

Online event

Installing and activating WooCommerce is easy but eCommerce has a lot of moving parts and shipping is one that can be especially confusing. There are many ways to configure shipping in WooCommerce and it can get quite complex depending on the site’s requirements. We will start with discussing how core WooCommerce deals with shipping and run through setting up a few different configurations. We’ll also look at adding flat rate shipping, free shipping, and real-time shipping rates from carriers like USPS, FedEx, and UPS. There will be time for Q&A and discussion following Eric’s walk-through. Our presenter, Eric Amundson founded IvyCat, a WordPress website agency in 2002. He is a web strategist and user-experience designer. Eric also contributes to design, development, systems administration, and marketing. This meetup is virtual. Once you RSVP a link will be visible to you.

DIY User Group for Bloggers & More

Wallingford Community Senior Center

Are you a blogger and/or DIY (do-it-yourselfers) looking to connect with others who are interested in building WordPress websites and blogs? Then this group may be for you! We meet once a month to discuss what we're working on, help each other on any problems we're having, and share tips on steps that can make life easier. This group is primarily bloggers with some experience with WordPress and blogging. If you are BRAND NEW to WordPress, we'd love to see you. We also recommend attending the WordPress Fundamentals MeetUp (meets on the third Saturday of most months), which will introduce you to this great platform and get you started on your path to blogging/website management. The DIY User Group meets on the last Saturday of each month. We hope you can join us and will spread the word. There's plenty of free parking at the Wallingford Senior Center. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: It says that the Senior is Closed, will you still have the meetup? Yep! I have a key and will be there setting up when you arrive. Please note that there is only one host for this meetup, so if I'm sick, I will send an email through MeetUp.com if I have to cancel. I can't find the space!!! We're in the lower level and the entrance is north of the parking lot. There will be signs. Do I have to bring a computer? Only if you want to show examples to the group to help facilitate the discussion or better explain an issue you're having. The map shows downtown Seattle, where is the location? Please join us at the Wallingford Senior Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave N, #140 (lowest level), Seattle, WA. To make sure you end up at the right location, put "Wallingford Senior Center" in your search browser and Google Maps will direct you to the right place. Folks have been hit or miss when trying to navigate with the 4649 address. I'm brand new to WordPress, is this the right MeetUp for me? If you are new to WordPress, check out the WordPress Fundamentals Meetup. This is a great place to get an introduction to WordPress. Of course, we'd love to have you too. Is this MeetUp only for Bloggers? Nope! If you are a professional creating sites for clients, we'd love to have you join us to share your expertise and advice. Also, please be sure to join our Freelancer Meetup on the first Thursday of each month 10-12 AM.
