Hey guys, i have a friend of mine that would like to start an online shop but doesnt want to spend hundreds or thousands in hiring a dev for custom work, so i remembered themeforest and some awesome ecommerce themes i saw here, but i have a couple doubts concerning the payments, since i never ever used wordpress:

1. I already saw how to implement the paypal feature in it from some tuts, but after the client processes the payment and finalizes it, how will his info come to the website owner ? ( about the item he bought and the mailing adress to be delivered) Will this be automatly emailed to the specified email account?
2. Is it easy to implement different payment options (ie, thro nacional mail, international mail, fast delivery)

Maybe these kind of things already come explained in the theme itself, but i just want to play safe before purchasing it and then have no clue what to do with it.
Thanks in advance! :)

All these themes assume a moderate understanding of WordPress. When you add e-commerce solutions such as WooCommerce (just one possibility), you’re also expected to have some familiarity with it. You also should understand that you’ll bear the added responsibility (even if just partially) to protecting vital customer data / preventing identity theft even if using a third party payment processor.

The Envato marketplaces try to make it clear that support is NOT part of any purchase. However, many vendors here offer basic support. Many go above and beyond but teaching you how to use WordPress, WooCommerce is well beyond the scope of the support offered by most vendors here.

The items sold here are inexpensive because you’re either expected to already know what to do with them or be capable of learning how. If you don’t want to pay hundreds to someone who already knows how to do what you’d like them to you might as well get reading and / or watching videos. It’s going to cost you some time to put it mildly.

Finding the right theme / buying it is the easy part and only the beginning. It’s wrong to expect that any theme is all inclusive “site in a box”. It’s not. It still requires much knowledge, assets and work after purchase. While the author can assist with simple questions, you will need to ultimately know how to / learn how to build the actual site with the “tools” you buy.

Thanks for the info and links. Yes im aware there is alot of work to do after the purchase of the theme (especially when me and him are completly new to it), was just wondering how difficult those options would be to be implemented (since everyone says wordpress is easy pie), from what i saw of some tuts, it really seemed very easy, was sorta of playing around and see what it does, but to those questions i really didnt found any tuts, and there lies my fear, of been able to do pretty much the whole site and then unable to “cook” that payment resolution.

Oh, it is…if you’re just making a blog. However, making a website can be as complex as you make it. Then add to that e-commerce and it’s anything but “easy pie”. Good luck! ;-)

If there’s no need to ship physical products and everything digital downloads instead, you wish to consider this potentially simpler option – https://easydigitaldownloads.com/

Yeah, i saw like to add pages and products and prices and all that was very easy, but the payments part can be very troublesome, so i guess its best to advice him to hire someone to do this job for him, we cant help them all! Thanks mate :D

Nah, everything is physical, he is already selling a bunch of products via those free ads websites, and since its a huge volume of products, he wanted to create one himself, but with easy to use and as unexpensive possible, i just thought i could help him by pointing him out to an ecommerce theme for wordpress, thats the whole story. But i guess he needs to find some other way to do it :)

I wonder why you think a dev would cost you thousands of dollars. I can do the job quickly within $70-80 with the required features like paypal integration. Let’s make your site !
