    Thank you 🙂 Sorry, but I don't use WooCommerce. It looks like it has improved since I last looked at it, but it still looks to be a bit expensive.

    This is all I do. Every tool I use is free. ATM Home Earner looks like a scam to me

    I'd check a bunch of them out, but I don't think I'd commit to 3 years with anybody. That is crazy! Look around and try to find honest reviews.

    No, I didn't know those terms. However, I went to wordpress org and they recommend three hosts. I called Bluehost and their price is $5.95 per month if you sign up for three years. Thank you for getting back to me.

    That is crazy. I just signed up for regular shared hosting yesterday for $4 a month. You don't need a dedicated host to have a shopping cart site. Did you ask about shared or dedicated hosting?

    I just called GoDaddy and they are quoting prices like $357 per year and as low as $173 per year. I hate the thought of scrapping my site and starting over.

    You can get a hosting plan from go daddy for $4.49 a month. That is what I use. Go daddy will install WordPress easily as well.

    My WordPress website was done by a friend and is free. I just learned that it cannot take plugins. What is the least expensive way of having a site that will take a shopping cart plugin? Thank you.

    I follow you up to 1:49 but my WordPress page does not have "Plugins" option. Is that because it's a free theme? What now?

    You could definitely go in and edit the user accounts page, but then you may have to spend more time on security. Is this something you are doing to make money selling stuff, or are you looking to make shopping carts for others? What I made here is used to make me money. You may be surprised that most people don't provide me with personal information at all on the site. They give all of that to PayPal and I access it that way

    There really isn't anyway to block someone from figuring out a site is run on WordPress. One look at the code will tell them that. You could restrict new people from signing up as users, but a user can't do anything on your dashboard. I have had numerous shopping carts run on this platform for over 2 years and was never successfully attacked. If you want to add a ton of security get a firewall plugin. I also use a sucuri plugin that is cheap and awesome

    I'm trying to create a widget with your while loop to show all featured products in a list without pictures. I’m in my widget but the while loop doesn’t seem to be working correctly. Do I have to include some file from e-Commerce plug in. I used your social links plug in Widget as a starting point . The while loop just skips out

    Thank you 🙂 I'm not sure why that would happen. It may be best to get the theme I made and test it. Then you can work from that. The theme I made is free to use in anyway of course. I hope that helps

    I can tell you that I have used WP ECommerce, which is free for almost exactly one year. I have never had a security concern. The only issue I have had doesn't really have anything to do with WPEC. Some shoppers get confused by Google shopping for some reason? I have found it to be worth the few lost sales though. I have worked with other expensive shopping cart systems and I've seen no benefit from them over WPEC

    Hey Derek
    Thanks for the prompt response. I have been following your tutorials very carefully. They have been very imformative and i learn new things everyday. I am from South Africa and all i am trying to do is get my own online store going. I however am trying to see what the most consistant and user friendly option is. I dont mind paying for something but then i need to know that it will work for me with as little hassle as possible.i always get stuck at some stage.

    regards

    That should work. Everything I used I give you for free to use in any way you'd like. I have about 80 wordpress development tutorials as well. If you need any help with the theme I can guide you along the right path. Most edits would occur in the HTML and CSS and have little to do with WordPress PHP functions

    Absolutely! I have a bunch of online stores and I've never had a single problem. If you use the right security plugins you should never have an issue. The only time I've seen a WordPress site get attacked lately is when the user drops their firewall, or through allowing code injection in comments

    WordPress have been criticized for having some security issues and being unstable if you list alot of items, do you think it's safe/stable enough to use for an webshop?

    Your tutorials are great btw!

    You need to go to installed plugins in your wordpress dashboard and deactivate opencart. Then activate WP E-Commerce

    I think I may know the problem (besides me being ignorant) I had previously installed opencart so I think I have created a conflict, because when I just type in my website url I get taken to the generic opencart page. I need help. Grrrr!

    Thank you so much , the mistake or confusion was the product category name = featured

    @vijaya6jun The way I set it up, every product that is in the Featured Product category shows up in the slider. You don't have to do anything fancy with the pictures. It automatically pulls the first image from the product images you assigned in wp e-commerce

    If i am not wrong , 'wpsc_product_category'=>'Featured'

    refers to featured products which are displayed inside the slider at the bottom which has add to cart buttons , other things are displayed fine. how do i add featured products.

    after adding products i have added a featured image. I am confused in adding products.

    @skatinallday1000 I've had non-stop work for the last 1 1/2 years because I learned how to make shopping carts. If you tell me what confused you in this tutorial I'll happily expand upon it?
