Latest News: Updated the documentation.

The following tutorial shows you how to manage and set up the general settings.

The following is a quick usage guide to get you started. Please make sure you follow these steps carefully.

1. WP eStore has a lot of setting options but don’t get intimidated by it. Most of the default settings are good to get you started (keep things simple at first). Remember to watch the video tutorials from our documentation.

2. First add products to the database through the ‘Add/Edit Products’ interface. Products can be modified through the ‘Manage Products’ interface.

3. To add an ‘Add to Cart’ button simply add the shortcode [wp_eStore_add_to_cart id=PRODUCT-ID] on your landing page of a product. Replace PRODUCT-ID with the actual product id (example: [wp_eStore_add_to_cart id=1] ). Product IDs for all your products can be found in the ‘Manage Products’ section

4. To add the shopping cart to a post or page (example: a checkout page) simply add the shortcode [wp_eStore_cart] to the post or page. You can also use the shortcode in a text widget to add the shopping cart to the sidebar.

Click on the following URL to checkout the shortcodes and function reference page for a full list of usable shortcodes.
