Getting Started

Norsani is a WooCommerce plugin designed to work with WordPress. The reason I’ve chosen WordPress is because it is the most popular and easy to use content management system on the web.

WordPress is used by 60.0% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 31.6% of all websites and WooCommerce is used by 12.9% of all the websites who use WordPress.

I’ve developed Norsani to be as smart as possible to completely install itself with a simple click so you do not need to worry about hiring a developer or being a WordPress expert.

I will discuss two situations which you can be in one after purchasing and downloading Norsani.

You already have a website?

In this situation there are two cases:

You are already using WordPress as your CMS? if yes then simply install Norsani like any other downloaded plugin:

  1. Log in to your WP admin area and go to Plugins > Add New.
  2. Browse to the Norsani archive .zip file on your device and select it.
  3. Click Install then click Activate after installation completes.

You are not using WordPress as your CMS? then you have to create a sub-domain or buy a new domain and install WordPress on it, you can do that using the integrated 1-click installation service for WordPress in your hosting account.

You still do not have a website?

In order to get set up your Norsani system, you’re going to need three things:

  1. A domain name (a web address like example.com)
  2. A hosting service (a service that hosts the files of your website and connects it to the internet)
  3. WordPress content management system.

To get your domain name and hosting account you can browse the web for a well-established website hosting company like for example TMD Hosting. However, selecting a hosting company is all your choice but make sure it includes features like unlimited SSD space, unlimited bandwidth, a free domain, premium support and a free cPanel. When ever you have choosing your hosting company you can simply chat with one of its sales reps. and complete the process of choosing your domain name and opening your hosting account.

The WordPress platform itself is free, but a domain name and hosting will cost you around $3 – $5 a month (for a shared hosting plan). however after your business moves forward and you are getting 100+ orders daily or have 60+ vendors registered. I highly recommend upgrading your hosting plan to VPS for best performance.

After your domain and hosting account is ready, you should now install the WordPress platform, you can do that either manually – I’m not going to explain this step as it might be a bit confusing for beginners – or automatically using the integrated 1-click installation service for WordPress, most of the hosting company offer that for a quick startup.

The last step after your WordPress website is ready is to install Norsani:

  1. Log in to your WP admin area and go to Plugins > Add New.
  2. Browse to the Norsani archive .zip file on your device and select it.
  3. Click Install then click Activate after installation completes.

After you install Norsani you will be automatically directed to the Norsani Help Center, if you have reached there, you’re done and your online food ordering system is ready to go 😀
