[resolved] How to Get Started with the WP e-Commerce plugin?? (3 posts)

    I'm hoping there are some Forum members here that use the WP e-Commerce plugin and can get me started in the right direction.

    I had no problems installing and activating the plugin on my test WP 2.71 website. I'd like to set up "shop" and "cart" in the simplest manner possible to get a feel for everything ...this will be my first hands-on experience with online sales transactions.

    WHERE should I start? ...upload product photos? ...start "creating" product descriptions? I've looked around both at the Instinct website and amongst the unzipped download files and cannot find any "Quick Start" or "How To" or anything ....

    I will appreciate any help!!

    TTFN Jim

    A good start would probably be going to the authors website and looking for documentation/help files there.

    Yeah, I know. On the Instinct site there are fairly complete descriptions of what you'll find on the many, various pages/screens. But no real discussion of why you might want to do something one way rather than another ...and no guidance on any sort of step-by-step, first you should do this and then this.

    Two of the most experienced forum moderators/contributors have put together a 125 page pdf manual that they sell for US$37.00 which I have now purchased. It's pushing me up the learning curve a little more quickly, but the WP e-Commerce plugin is HUGE and COMPLEX and I'm still in the forums searching for answers and posting questions.

    I will still appreciate hearing from other forum members here who have been using the plugin (or competitors) and have anything to say.
