WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin written in PHP that allows website developers to turn a WordPress website into a full-featured online store. The installation process is fairly easy and it takes only a couple of minutes.
At the time of writing this tutorial, the latest stable version of WooCommerce is 2.6.4 and it requires:
PHP 5.6 or higher (preferably the latest), with memory_limit PHP variable set to 64 MB or higher (128 MB or higher is preferred)
