In this step-by-step video tutorial, I show you how to make a professional, full functioning online store with WordPress. We’ll be using a free theme called Storefront and a free eCommerce plugin called WooCommerce. The Storefront theme is easy to setup and I think it is a classy choice to go with. Enjoy creating an awesome online store with Storefront!
