What is Shopify : Shopify is an eCommerce platform that lets anyone build an online store without any technical knowledge. It is a hosted platform, which means all your store’s data stands on their servers. You can use it with your self-hosted WordPress site using your own domain name.
What is WordPress : WordPress is an online, open source website creation tool written in PHP. But in non-geek speak, it’s probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today.You can install WooCommerce plugin and start your online shop in 5 min.
We will show you how to do it with wordpress + woocommerce because they are both free tools. Go to your wordpress admin dashboard and click Plugins – > Add New and in search box type woocommerce , you have to install the one with the above name. After installing and activating you will be redirected to a configuration page like that look like the image below:

You can buy a credit card payment plugin from woocommerce.com and all your customers will have the possibility to pay with credit card directly from your website. They don’t have to register in paypal to complete the payment.
Automarically created pages
WooCommerce needs to install 4 pages: shopping cart, account, shop, and checkout. Click continue button to automatically create these pages.
This will bring you to the next step.
You have to tell where your store is located and which currency and unit measures you are using.
After filling out your location and currency, click continue.
Next, you have to enter your shipping and tax information.
WooCommerce can be used to sell digital downloads and physical goods .You need to check the box if you will be shipping goods, or you can leave it unchecked if you will only be selling digital goods.Then you have to answer the tax question. WooCommerce can help you automatically calculate and add taxes to your prices.You can always add tax information later from WooCommerce settings.
Click continue button.
You will be asked to choose a payment method for your online store.
By default, WooCommerce comes with support for PayPal, PayPal Standard, and Stripe payment gateways. There are many other payment methods available for WooCommerce which you can install later if you need. The easiest way to accept payments is PayPal Standard option. Simply enter your PayPal email address and click continue.A lot of people including us, use both PayPal and Stripe. Setup Stripe by following the instructions on the WooCommerce screen.
