Create a wordpress store with invoicesonline integration part 1

Welcome to our step by step tutorial on creating your very own online shop based on Wordpress, WooCommerce, & with Invoices Online integration.

Hosting & Installing Wordpress

The first thing you need is a PHP website host, if you need reliable hosting, we can assist with this - or you may want to sign up with any other provider that provides linux, php, & mysql hosting.  Don't worry about the technical details, just ensure they have those 3 things available to you.

Download Wordpress

  • After setting up your website with a host, you'll need to download Worpress from https://wordpress.org/download/
  • Go to the folder where you downloaded wordpress, and extract it.
  • Next you'll need to upload the extracted files to your website host - you can use ftp for this, and there's a great free utility available called FileZilla - https://filezilla-project.org/ - Get the FileZilla Client from here, and install it.  After installation, use it to connect to your website with the details supplied to you by your hosting provider.  I recommend following the famous 5 minute setup instructions here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

In part 2 we'll help you set up & configure WooCommerce.

Impossible to run our businesses without IO

IO is an integral part of our day to day business. It allows me complete control and overview functionality, while still enabling franchise owners to run their various franchises without interruption.

At Storietyd.co.za - a bookclub for Afrikaans children, with thousands of members - all our billing is automated, automated invoices, automated debit orders, automated payment allocation, and so forth. Administration would be an absolute nightmare without IO.

We are suppliers of bulk educational products to schools, our reps in the field use IO for quotes, invoicing and managing debtors, directly from their smartphones / tablets.

We are extremely satisfied with Invoices Online, and would certainly recommend that you try it out.
