Hello there?

Im student that have no background in programming but would like to venture into ecommerce. I have done my research in building an ecommerce but with a little twist.

I would to ask some guidance on LYN forumers to help if there is any youtube channels that is good to learn in programming specifically wordpress or built your own by using opensource?

On top of that, for anyone who have done in this field specifically ecommerce do u mind to share on the financial part and development process as well length of this business?

In layman terms, I would like to ask advice on wordpress vs opensource good, bad, time development and implication on long term as well as cost.

I am a Wordpress beginner, but I find it very easy to use. Just need to choose the right template, customize your site identity, theme color, and voila, you are ready to post...
If you like static page, you may consider Page over Post. Remember to customize the menu, so that you Pages appear properly on menu.

On a side note, I use free unlimited web hosting and free subdomain from Infinity Free. The disadvantage is slow loading speed.

Hi,

I'm not familiar with OpenSource but I'll talk about Wordpress here.

I'm an engineering graduate without any background in programming too, yet I still manage to create beautiful Wordpress sites too.

It's not that difficult to learn how Wordpress works. Just need passion and little bit of patient on doing so.

I recommend on you starting with basic website first just to get your hands around the idea of building sites using Wordpress.

Depends on your timings, building an ecommerce website would definitely become handy after that. Geo Location functions would able to be benefited through themes and plugins supplied by the Wordpress developers. This kind of functions are easy to be develop as long as you have the strong basics of creating a website using Wordpress.

To venture through this business might not be as expensive as you thought, as if you have the budget of RM200+ you are entitle to build a website with free domain and high quality hosting.

Hope these will help.

for e-commerce, I am using woocommerce plugin on WordPress

apart from a good e-commerce plugin, you might need to take consideration of theme. A lot free theme out there without support.
Even paid theme, you might face an issue when coming to major update

Just take an example on recent update of Wordpress 5.0, a lot of theme facing issue and developer either unable to support of slow develope on the latest version of the theme to be compatible with latest WordPress 5.0

You might also want to look into page builder as well, there is a few famous available in the market, I personally using DIVI builder, one of the top 5 WordPress page builder in the market.
If you wish to experience it, I can share you more detail. cool2.gif

Am a WP user, you don't necessarily need to code unless you want to delve into the nitty-gritty. Lots of plugins which do the job well and with several good page builders, you can simply cut down the time and effort.

Just search for hosting with CPanel and WordPress installed. I highly recommend axislua as I've been using his service for several years with little hickups and reasonable pricing, very nice fella cool2.gif

You better needs to understand your initial requirements and then just list them here, what exactly you need to change in html, css or javascript of wordpress files which can't be done by some plugins (tons of them) already for some website feature.

Building a website is really simple nowadays.

Wordpress is the usual go to platform for this. A lot of big companies have their websites based on wordpress as well , check out this article : https://www.wpbeginner.com/showcase/40-most...sing-wordpress/

Those without experience can always use drag and drop builder tools like> I personally prefer elementor. You can practically make any kind of website with it.

Hello everyone, In wp 4.3.1 I use WooCommerce. When a customer pays for goods by the order number (let`s say via Paypal or credit card), Site Admin identifies the order by its number in the payment document and on the order page sets this order to Complete. Right? Is there any way to make this process automatic in some way? Although I also wonder how the plugin works for the product tables https://woobewoo.com/plugins/table-woocommerce-plugin/ someone has already bought this? From the description, it is worthwhile.
