Depending on what you want todo one has to buy one or more plugins. The WooCommerce Plugin by itself is however very well equiped to handle a default webshop.
The WooCommerce Plugin How Does it Work?
WooCommerce has rich documentation archive about the plugin. Go to WooCommerce Documentation Website→.
Note : We don't support the working of any plugins within the theme. These plugins have extensive documentation of its own.
Note : For adjusting the layout of the shop or the order of items within a product page one has to follow the WooCommerce documentation and add/remove/adjust the action calls. Problems of any kind with that can be dropped at the WooCommerce support forum.
Note : We support our coding issues, mistakes and if any we fix those within a reasonable time if they are cause by our doing.
Note : WooCommerce has its own support forum where one can get help (paid or non-paid).
The WooCommerce Settings can be found here.
You can find “WooCommerce” on the left hand side menu in the wordpress theme customizer. This theme offers some global options for the WooCommerce Plugins such as “Layout”, “Amount of products per page” etc. You can adjust those settings within the theme options in the customizer.
Q : What is the differencies between Product Showcase and WooCommerce Products?
A : They are completely different systems. You can use default “Product Showcase” to create an organized product catalog. If you would like to
sell your products online via various payment gateway systems, we advice to use WooCommerce.
Q : Can i move my existing products from Product Showcase to WooCommerce?
A : No, this is not possible. You need to create new products, categories etc. by using the WooCommerce Product Post type.
Q : Can I get support on how the WooCommerce plugin works?
A : No, WooCommerce has its own support forum where one can get help (paid or non-paid). We only adjust our coding mistakes, if any and support those.
Note : When The WooCommerce Plugin Updates it is wise to visit the RTTheme Support Forum to see if we aprove of the update. WooCommerce sometimes changes many of its code causing blindly installing of a update that your website does not look ok anymore.

Note : There are more (free) Ecommerce plugins at WordPress.org or on the Internet. This theme has no buildin support for those. If you decide to use such plugins you will probably have to recode theme core files, css, html and php code. We don't support such coding adjustments to the theme. Not even on a paid basis as we do not have the time for that.
