15. How woocommerce works?

As a WordPress plugin, WooCommerce is designed to function on top of the WordPress framework. The WooCommerce settings can be used to set up payment gateways, shipping choices, and tax rates after the plugin has been installed and activated.

After setting up your store, you may add products to it by adding new “Product” entries to WordPress.

The names, descriptions, prices, and photos of the products can all be included in these entries. To further organize your products, you may create product categories and tags.

A customer can peruse your merchandise at your store, put things in their shopping cart, and then check out. WooCommerce manages the checkout process and will determine the overall cost of the order, including any shipping and tax fees. The customer will be taken to a payment gateway, such PayPal or Stripe, to finalize their purchase after completing the checkout procedure.

WooCommerce also comes with a number of management and reporting tools that you can use to manage orders, track sales, and view customer data. Additionally, you may modify the functionality of your store using the plugin’s hooks and filters, and you can add other features like subscriptions, reservations, memberships, and more using a variety of extensions and add-ons.
