Leverage the power of WooCommerce to sell your products

WooCommerce is the premier choice for eCommerce sites using WordPress, and this free Kadence Starter Template has everything you need to get your roasts in front of customers, no matter where they are in the world.

The WooCommerce Shop page gives you ample space to show your products.

With many eCommerce installations, showing numerous product photos often helps store owners improve their conversion rates by showcasing more product benefits and options.

The product detail page gives plenty of examples for featuring your products.

Requirements for using Coffee Shop Starter Template

There are only two required plugins for this free starter template:

  • Kadence Blocks 
  • WooCommerce 

You won’t need to pre-install these plugins. When you get started with the Coffee Shop Starter Template, Kadence will do all of the work for you. Here’s how to get started.

On initial import of the starter template, you’ll be given the option to change your color scheme and font family. The default colors are fun, hip, and contemporary but you can always adjust the colors to match your desired look and feel.

  1. I am considering this coffee shop starter for an artisan woodworker site – selling less than 20 items. However, I sell laser PERSONALIZED products. Can I have a CUSTOM entry (or multiple) for customer input (content for side 1, content for side 2 content for side 3, ETC)

    Or should I use a Google Form on a thankyou page?
