WordPress Ecommerce: Easy Digital Downloads – new lynda.com course

Hot on the heels of the release of WordPress Ecommerce: Core Concepts and WordPress Ecommerce: WooCommerce comes my third course in the series: WordPress Ecommerce: Easy Digital Downloads.

While WooCommerce is a full fledged ecommerce platform for WordPress, Easy Digital Downloads (or EDD for short) is built to sell digital products and services only. This means a drastically simplified user interface, no shipping options, and easier tax handling. If you want to sell digital products online Easy Digital Downloads is a great place to start.

Ecommerce in WordPress has long been at the top of my list of new courses to make at lynda.com and the release of this course along with the precursor WordPress Ecommerce: Core Concepts make this a reality.

Be sure to watch the WordPress Ecommerce: Core Concepts course before embarking on this new course, and I recommend you also check out WordPress Ecommerce: WooCommerce to see what a more built out platform has to offer.

If you do not have a lynda.com account already and you want to know what we’re all about, go to lynda.com/trial/mor10 for a free 7 day trial.

  1. hello morten,
    i watched your online course at Lynda.com and wondered when it is better to use WooCommerce and when magento.
    I couldn’t find a satisfying answer on the web.
    interested to hear your thoughts.

  2. Oren, I would say WooCommerce is suited for small ecommerce situations, even though WooCommerce is now in version 2.0 and you can do quite a bit with it. Magento is for higher inventory of voulme. I would recommend WooCommerce if you’re familiar with WordPress because Magento has a steep learning curve for when you want it to behave in a certain manner (you can do a lot with it though).
