I'm looking to purchase a wordpress theme that has woocommerce 2.5 so I can sell items on my wordpress site.

Do I need to install anything else ? I was looking in categories/ecommerce but didn't see woocommerce in there...

I think I will need to purchase an SSL certificate as well via cPanel/security/SSL manager.

Hello Ian,

Thank you for your questions on WordPress ecommerce. Your theme will be installed separately from your Woo Commerce. The theme is just general layout, while the Woo Commerce plugin will need to be added separately to handle your ecommerce.

There are Woo themes as well, so they should complement your WooCommerce nicely. As far as finding the WooCommerce plugin, when you visit 'Plugins' and then click 'Add New', enter 'WooCommerce' in the search and it should be the first one to pop up. From there you should be able to install it.

We also have an article on How to Purchase an SSL that will help you.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
