  • Good day,
    I would like seek help with establishing an e-commerce platform using plugins from I tried using some plugins available in but after activating my site still looks like a blog like site.

    My idea is to establish a e-commerce platform but only listing services provided by various companies with no products.

    At the same time, it will require the following features
    -3 user type ( administrator, provider and consumer)

    -Users should only be able to register as provider or consumer and only the administrator should be able to make another user an administrator.

    -When a user registers, the information taken should include name, address (street, city, country), email, phone, business/company name

    -site should have categories and sub-categories for provider to upload their service

    -The administrator(s) should be able to create categories and sub-categories.

    – The service information should include service name, type (related to category and/or sub-category), description, price, images, meta-keywords.

    – services should have to be approved by the administrator(s) before being published on the site.

    – Sellers should be able to view all the services that they uploaded and be able to make edits (if edits are made then the administrator my re-approve the service).

    – Consumer should be able to search for services by category, name, price and general keywords.

    I would be grateful for guiding me step by step for all the requirements. Thank you in advance

  • Hi

    Try WooCommerce and a suitable theme. You may need to hire help for a few of your requirements that are not ‘out of the box’.

    All the best!

    Try the “storefront” theme — out of the box, it’s a store and it’s not too hard to customize


    @cityangel: Your question and feature list is far too complex of a request in these forums. Everyone here is a volunteer and no one is going to spend the time to walk you through all those feature points. The best thing to do is start with the docs, such as
