Free WooCommerce Video Lessons
Here’s a series of free video lessons you can watch to learn something about customization, configuration and troubleshooting (no strings attached, unsubscribe at any time). Whether it’s coding, understanding a specific setting or fixing a common WooCommerce error, I’ve got you covered!
Editing WooCommerce plugin files or core theme templates is never a good idea. WordPress, WooCommerce and properly coded plugins and themes come with “hooks”, and give you the chance to override functionalities and layouts directly from your child theme. Welcome to the world of WooCommerce customization!
Lesson 1: Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?
WooCommerce customization should be placed in a “child theme”, an update-proof version of your WordPress theme. In there you can override colors, fonts, layouts (CSS) and even change or add new functionalities (PHP).
Now that you’ve watched Lesson #1 and know where to place your WooCommerce custom code, the following video lessons will show you how to achieve some basic yet effective WooCommerce customization. You will learn how to use “hooks” and add, remove, move or edit WooCommerce content. From the single product page to the checkout page, I’ve got you covered!
Getting to know the WooCommerce settings inside out could save you time and money. We’re all guilty of looking for plugins and code snippets… when the solution is already provided by WooCommerce out of the box! Deeply understanding the WooCommerce configuration options can really open a world of possible.
Lesson 1: Where to Find WooCommerce Settings?
WooCommerce setup begins from knowing exactly what the settings do and… where to find them. If you get familiar with the range of plugin features you can also figure out when the default settings are not enough for your needs.
Now that you know “where to look” in regard to WooCommerce setup, the following video lessons will show you how to master some of the most popular WooCommerce settings. You will learn what the ideal product image sizes are, how to create complex shipping rules, how to handle taxes and more. Either way, these free videos will help you immensely!
Fixing a broken WooCommerce website should be easy and fast. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case and your website users may be deeply affected. Here are some free lessons for you so you can understand the terms, know the causes and figure out how to act quickly.
Lesson 1: Updating WooCommerce The Right Way
Easier said than done: you can avoid 99% of your WooCommerce website issues if you can keep your website up to date and avoid conflicts and bugs (or even security holes).
Now that you’ve likely excluded most issues by keeping your software up to date, you need to know that sometimes that’s not enough and you may experience website errors or be victim of a hacker attack. This means you’ve got to take action, guess the cause and find a fix.

About Business Bloomer (a.k.a. Rodolfo Melogli)
I’ve been working as an independent WooCommerce freelancer since 2012. I fell in love with WooCommerce since the very beginning, thanks to its flexibility and the fact that it’s open source and easy to customize.
Since I started sharing my WooCommerce tutorials online, I discovered how much I enjoy helping people. Now I blog every week, I teach WooCommerce courses, I run local Meetups, I speak at WordCamps and I try to reply to every email and blog comment I get.
It’s official – WooCommerce changed my life. And I hope it can change yours as well.
