Upcoming events (5)
6:00pm: Chatting/Geeking Out 🤓 6:10pm: Introductions 6:15pm: Show and Tell 7:45pm: Wrap-up Seeing as last month's Show and Tell was a big hit, this month we want to see what you've been working on again. If you have a cool project or just found something cool in WordPress, bring it to share with the group. Meeting will be in Zoom. A link will be in the Meetup event once you RSVP. All are welcome to attend but please note: we do have a tendency to talk about some technical/developer topics. If you are looking for some less developer-focused topics, you may want to attend one of our many other Meetups each month.
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.
