In this article we will show you how to use WooCommerce Poor Guys Swiss Knife to set up your shop on a WooCommerce website.

Please note: For this article you will need to install the WooCommerce Poor Guys Swiss Knife, and have a WooCommerce enabled WordPress theme.

Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.

Step 2) On your admin panel, click on WooCommerce >> WooCommerce Poor Guys Swiss Knife. You will see arange of different settings, including Shop, Label, Email, Cart and Checkout settings.


Step 2) When you click on each heading, a dropdown will show you all of the available settings. Starting with Shop Settings, you are given the opportunity to have control over how many products, columns and thumbnail columns appear per page, as well as being able to enable features such as Fast Cart, Fast Checkout and Payment Gateways.


Step 3) The next step is to go through your label settings. These are important, as they highlight to your customer exactly what each section of your WooCommerce site means, from creating labels for call to action buttons such as ‘Read more’, ‘Add to Cart’ and ‘Out of stock’, to labelling tax and product descriptions.


Step 4) The email settings are for adding CC (carbon copy) or BCC (blind carbon copy) recipients for emails, usually when a confirmation is sent out or a customer files a complaint or query and various admin users will want a copy.


Step 5) On the Cart Settings, you decide what shows up in your cart, and give as much or as little control to the customer as you like, including setting a minimum and maximum number of cart items and the quantity max/min for each item (e.g. 3 pairs of shoes per customer maximum).


Step 6) The Checkout Settings are helpful for creating an easy to follow checkout procedure for customers on your website, including setting time and date fields, calendar style date picker for ordering, email validations, and more.


Step 7) The WooCommerce Checkout Localisation creates fields for your customers to fill out when making an order for delivery, in relation to their address, state, postcode and city.


Step 8) The WooCommerce Checkout Billing Section gives you control over which fields show up in the billing section of the checkout process, where a customer can give you information such as address, email, contact number, state, postcode and more. You can add or delete fields to this section as you see fit.


Step 9) The WooCommerce Checkout Shipping section works in a similar way to Step 8, except that the details your customer adds to these fields are in relation to shipping. You can add fields to this section if you wish to acquire more information in relation to location and shipping information.


Step 10) When you have completed all of these sections, it the blue button marked Save Changes. Your WooCommerce website will now be ready for your customers in every section of their shopping experience, from shopping to purchasing and getting their goods and services shipped out and delivered.

    This is a very cool plug in, however I am having issues with one area. I needed to use it to add more fields under the shipping area on checkout. Those fields work, but they do not pass through to the confirmation emails. Any idea how to resolve that issue?
