WooCommerce: How to Customize your Store Without Coding

by Tutor Aspire

WooCommerce, with 25% market share for website eCommerce solutions as of November 2019, is the most popular platform for building online stores. It’s easy to get a basic setup running and start selling your products online.

WooCommerce also offers a lot of hooks and filters for further customization – the only problem is you need to understand a bit of PHP programming.

This is where the WooCustomizer WordPress plugin comes in. WooCustomizer offers all of these filters and more, all neatly built into one WordPress plugin so you can visually customize your WooCommerce store in an ‘easy to use’ and intuitive interface within the WordPress Customizer.

No more creating a child theme to manually add code snippets to your WordPress website, no more adding multiple plugins and increasing the chance of bugs coming up… Just a simple, one plugin solution.

Built for non-coders & developers

WooCustomizer is built to be lightweight, fast and easy to use; the plugin only uses and includes the WooCommerce functionalities that you choose to use.

So whether you’re manually adding code snippets via a child theme you’ve created, or using the WooCustomizer plugin, it should not affect your site loading time by much.

Here’s a video walkthrough on using WooCustomizer settings:
