How to Start an Online Store in 2021 (Step by Step)

Do you want to start your own online store? Creating an online store can be a terrifying thought especially if you're not technically inclined. In this video, we'll show you how to build your online store with WordPress step by step.

This video brought to you by WPForms, the most beginner friendly WordPress form plugin, take a look at their site here:



For our discount visit:

This guide will be using a site on Bluehost to set ut up. You can use our referral link to get any active discounts we have negotiated by using our link below:

We will go through the steps to install your WordPress site with BlueHost and how to log in with their system. You can change the login username/password when you log into the site but BlueHost automates that for you when starting out.

WooCommerce should have been automatically been installed on your site if you purchased the WoCommerce hosting from BlueHost. If WooCommerce pulls up their startup wizard, we would want to click the I don't need help link for starting out as we'll be walking you through. You can always go back and use the startup wizard if you want.

In the Settings, General area, you can set your site's title and tagline to have your site title be what you actually want your visitors to see. We would not recommend updating the URL or address to prevent anything from breaking on your site.

Now we would want to go under Products, Help in the top-right, and activate the setup wizard to help design what you're wanting your site to sell. We would want to activate under WooCommerce, Settings in the payment tab the methods that we would want to use. For testing purposes, we would recommend using cash on delivery until the store goes live.

There are many different customization options available and we would recommend watching this video or read through the written article to see what can be done.
