How To Make An Ecommerce Website (Easy, Fast, Free)

Having an ecommerce website is a red-hot trend right now. But did you know that it is very easy to make an ecommerce website with WordPress?

In this video, I will show you how to start selling virtual or physical products with your own website using a free WordPress theme and WooCommerce.


  1. Great video as always….
    If you could ask the guys at Astra if they can make it possible to be able to add the Cart also in above Header as a menu item, and add a feature to make products as Coming Soon, which can hide add to Cart, and have a different badge…

    1. I think you should be able to do that because the Cart icon can be placed anywhere with a shortcode. you can read their knowledgebase for instructions.

    Nice post I have see your post it’s very helpful for ecommerce website I have need help to you, can you tell me which popup you did use for subscribe and can you tell me one more which postgird addons you did use your fullsite page? thanks

  4. Adam, could you make a tutorial on how to build a membership dashboard, or is there a plugin that handles that … thanks Tony

  5. Hi Adam,
    When i see your post there is showing youtube video tutorial I’m really happy for kind this help. I needed to ask.. when i’m play the video and going down to see for full details this video automatically showing in simple box. How to I can do this like this.

  6. is it possible to show the prices of the same product we are selling on our store from different websites just to compare and what plugin we should use. I know there are a lot of plugins which compare prices between various products but i want one in which i can sell my product showing as it’s on the minimum price from other competitors

    1. There may be a WooCommerce addon that does that. None that I am aware of, but I haven’t gone out looking.

  7. Hi Adam, i know this is way off the topic here, but i needed to ask. In your homepage the animated words that goes from CONFIDENTLY SECURE – GROW – CREATE etc. is that feature in the elementor pro? if so could you please direct me on where to find it? …. and by the way Adam, you are awesome! you videos are really amazing

    Hi Adam, thanks so much for all your videos(i just started following your videos on YouTube anyways and they’ve been really amazing). Please can you make a video on multivendor eCommerce website? Maybe with free themes too. Thanks!

  9. Hi,

    Thanks for the amazing tutorial. Can you please let me know as to where can I download the dummy XML data file you mentioned in your video ?

  10. Sorry, but I wanted to test Thrive Comments using the Thrive Comments blog post, but it’s not up yet and I want to see if I’m allowed to edit a comment after posting it. Thanks!

    1. Hmmm… Doesn’t look like I can edit my own comment, even within the first five minutes or so of posting it. Unless you have that option turned off, that’s an issue for me. I definitely want people to be able to make clarifications and quickly fix mistakes they only noticed after they hit Post.

      1. Hey @Dan,
        Do you know if they’ve enabled the editing capability?

    2. Hey no problem at all and as you discovered that is not an option. I think it may be more of a WordPress restriction but I will ask Thrive about it.

      1. Thanks Adam. For what it’s worth, I am currently using WPDiscuz for comments and that plugin allows for comment editing (and a bunch of other things). But I like the look of Thrive, so I will keep an eye on it.

        Two other quick questions for you, since you know more than I do and you seem to have some pull, too. 🙂

        1. I hear that there is no way to set links in comments as No Follow. That sounds like a good feature to have. Am I wrong?

        2. If you think of it, and are so inclined, consider suggesting that they add Twitter Login alongside Facebook and Google. 🙂

        Thanks for everything!

        1. I’ll make those suggestions to them. Regarding the no follow links, for auto link replacements yes, but not links that someone enters in if you allow that.

  11. How do you enable the cart icon in the header? Did the setting change?

    1. The setting did move since I recorded this video. Now you need to enable it in the customizer. You can display the cart icon in the menu by going under Layout – Primary Header option and enabling WooCommerce as Custom Menu Item.

  12. What are you using to have the cart icon in the menu of the Astra theme here?

    1. It’s a feature in the theme, nothing additional added to the website. I think you may have to enable it in the customizer.
