In the WordPress user interface, you can also configure navigation, so that your clients can orient themselves well on the web and quickly find what they are looking for. The WooCommerce Setup Wizard automatically generates a navigation menu with 4 options:
Store with its overview of the products and details.
Shopping cart with a digital collection of orders.
Payment options that bring together the different payment gateways.
My account, where the client’s account is stored with the summary of the order and the contact information.
In the “Appearance” section of the WordPress dashboard, options are available to expand, customize and manage the navigation menu of your online store. To achieve this look, click on “Menu” and choose a name for the new menu (WordPress names it “Main Menu” by default). Then, in the “Menu Structure” section, you can add and configure the items you want to appear by clicking the arrow to the right of each one, and finally, when you are done, the changes are saved by clicking the “Save” button. menu”. The “Drag and drop” function will allow turning main pages into sub-elements.
Regarding the appearance of your website, depending on the WordPress theme you have chosen, you will be able to customize the menu structure, adjust and manage the design of your online store (color scheme, site identity, static cover, etc. ). For this, you have at your disposal a wide range of templates, many of them free. Determining the type of web design that best suits your page will depend, among other things, on the sector, the range of products and the tastes of your target audience.
Add products, images and texts to your WordPress Shop:
The WordPress control panel brings together the necessary tools to add and manage images, text descriptions, and other content.
To add products to your catalog, you must go to the “Products” section (in the sidebar) and click on “Add product”. Once here, you can define if it is a “Simple Product” or a “Variable Product” (that is, those products available in different sizes or colors). If it’s a product that doesn’t ship physically, select the item as a “virtual” or “downloadable” product.
Then, in the product mask you can add the names of the articles, as well as product descriptions, photos, galleries and labels (tags).
To organize your products into category pages, select the “Categories” subtopic from the “Products” menu and enter the name and the “slug” there, which is nothing more than the locator version of the name or URL for this category, e.g. example “Tableware” (slug: “tableware”). Next, include a product description and thumbnail, and when you’re done, click “Add New Product Category.”
On the right side of the “Add new product” section you will find a box to select the different product categories. Once you have finished your selection and clicking on “Publish” or “Only save”, the product will be automatically added to the desired category within the store, in this case Tableware.
