Your Guide to Organizing Products in WooCommerce

Wordpress

Ready to set up shop? One of the best things you can do before creating a WooCommerce with WordPress site is to get organized.

When you decide to open your own ecommerce store, it can feel equally exciting and overwhelming. You get to have a lot of control over how you sell products, the experience, and even special sales. But it comes with the downside of making sure everything is running smoothly. Before you jump into WooCommerce with WordPress, you need to make sure everything is organized.

Organization is two-fold: it ensures you don’t lose your files, and it makes the customer experience so much better. Imagine having to tediously sift through pages in an online store because the search bar doesn’t work or they don’t have categories. Boo 👎

Here are a few ways to get organized for WooCommerce with WordPress.

Organize Your Files

First things first, never ever have one copy of your files. Store your files off your website, preferably on a hard drive and cloud storage. Personally, I use Dropbox*.

Next, make sure your files are organized. This will help you quickly find things and make updating files so much easier. I tell my clients to create a folder with their shop name, then have a folder for each individual product. For example: Laugh Eat Learn Shop (folder) > Foodie Font Bundle (folder) > 

Within that folder, I recommend having a Final File (which will be uploaded to WooCommerce with WordPress), an original file for your eyes only, and an image file.

This will make setting up your shop super simple because everything is in one place! Plus, if you need to make updates in the future, you aren’t scrambling to find your products.

Organize Your Categories

Creating categories on your WooCommerce for WordPress shop makes for a better shopping experience! To determine your categories, look at your products and think about the different groups they would fit into, such as seasons, topics, grade levels, etc.

Then, begin placing your products in those categories. It’s okay if some of the products fall into multiple categories. In fact, it can actually be great for SEO.

Organize Your Product Listings

When setting up WooCommerce with WordPress, I highly recommend having a template or checklist for your product listing. This will make sure things are consistent across your shop and ensure that you don’t miss any key steps when uploading a product.

At a minimum, you want to include the title, price, description, actual product, cover image, and categories.

Organize Your Pages

As I mentioned before, when you open a WooCommerce with WordPress shop, you have a lot more control. And that comes with some added responsibilities! To make sure your business is protected, there are a few must-have pages for your website: an FAQ page, privacy policy, return policy, and terms and conditions.

Personally, I use Website Policies for all of my legal docs. But make sure you find a website or person you trust and that uses legal terms that apply to your state, providence, and/or country.
