"I had no clue about WooCommerce customization..."

"How can I change *this* in WooCommerce? Should I override templates? Where should I place customization? Is there a plugin that does *that*? Is *this* possible in WooCommerce? Why does the checkout keep spinning? How long will this customization job take me?"

When I started my WordPress freelance career, I had no clue about WooCommerce customization. But I loved WooCommerce so much that I kept saying "Yes" to any client request. And boy - did I get in trouble!

I didn't know anything about hooks, child themes, troubleshooting, best practices. I didn't even know how to code in PHP. I got all my time estimates wrong. I had to refund some clients. I had no tutor, no guide. It was all in my mind, but pretty blurry.

Now that I run a successful freelancing business, I decided to transfer this valuable knowledge to you, so that you can avoid the same mistakes.

If you want to learn WooCommerce customization properly, without wasting time and money like I did at the beginning of my career, #CustomizeWoo is the online course for you.

What Topics Does the Online Course Cover?

#CustomizeWoo is divided into 5 sections ("modules"). Each section has, on average, 10 videos. Each video-lesson provides bonus reads / links and a comment area where students can post comments, feedback, questions and code snippets.

When you’re making an investment in your own knowledge, it’s important to know what you’re getting - so here's a breakdown of each module.

Module 1: WooCommerce Foundation

This is the ideal start for those who want to learn how to handle project management. From a brand new website to live WooCommerce sites - learning the basics of project management and creating a list of go-to websites to stat up to date is the best, fastest, most cost-effective way to start your journey.

Each lesson has now also a short 5-min video in case you want to learn faster.

Module 4: WooCommerce Integration & Enhancements

Website is live, you're customizing something - and out of nowhere you get a blank page. Or maybe the cart is empty. At times, the checkout keeps "spinning". What's happening? How can we do thorough WooCommerce troubleshooting?

When things go wrong, you have to act fast. And you've got to become good at guessing where the error is coming from.

#CustomizeWoo has been fantastic!

The best? There have been so many, however where I learned the most were Modules 2 and 3. Where you explained over and over again adding and removing functions and filters, your explanations were simple to understand and now when I look at a add or remove filter I actually understand the basics of it - before I would just hack away at the code and cross my fingers that it worked!

Also helpful and really great timing as they were things I was working on at the time were Import/Export and Analytics - I didn't realize I hadn't actually turned on the eCommerce analytics in Google, yikes!

Thank you - I am so glad I have taken this course, money well spent.

#CustomizeWoo is my ideal go-to resource when I need to learn a new WooCommerce functionality. Videos are easily accessible on any device and having a lifetime, on-demand encyclopedia of premium WooCommerce resources puts my busy mind at ease. Besides, having a 1-to-1 call with Rodolfo was invaluable - there is always something to learn from each other.

My 1-to-1 call sessions with Rodolfo were very helpful! I'm pretty familiar with hooks and customization and by following his tutorials there is always something interesting to learn - however talking in person was invaluable. No matter how long you've been working with WordPress and WooCommerce, 60 minutes on Skype can make you save hours of headaches and troubleshooting.

About the Author

Hello there, I'm Rodolfo Melogli.

After a few years of practicing Civil Engineering, I found myself without a job. I reinvented my career and started designing ANY kind of website for ANY kind of client for VERY little money 🙂

But it's when I started playing with and specializing in WooCommerce that my luck turned around. Now I'm a WordCamp speaker, a WooCommerce customization expert and an Internet marketer who is able to charge top dollar for WooCommerce freelance work.

As you've probably found out, I love helping the WooCommerce community: I write weekly WooCommerce customization articles and help organizing WordCamp Dublin, the Dublin WooCommerce Meetup and the Dublin WordPress Meetup.

Finally, I love coding, hiking, travelling, and above all, chasing tennis and soccer balls. Of course, I'm still in love with Italian food despite I've been living in Ireland since 2007!
