If you run a large business, or just need a more advanced solution then you should consider RapidCart Pro. In this lesson you’ll learn some of the basics of RapidCart Pro and setup a few important details on your store in preparation for the rest of this course.

RapidCart Pro integrates with a number of payment options such payment on delivery, PayPal, Mollie, credit card payments via Stripe, and more. In this lesson you’ll learn how to customise which payment options you want to enable on your store.

In this lesson we’ll use the built in customisation options builtin to RapidCart Pro to improve the look and feel of our new store.
Run Time 24:24
The standard product information pages that are provided by RapidCart Pro and perfectly functional, but we want to takes things a step further and create a completely custom layout using Stacks. In this lesson you’ll learn how to do exactly that, and integration our new custom product pages directly in to our RapidCart Pro store.
Run Time 17:04
In a similar fashion to how we built the custom product pages, we’ll use Stacks again to build a custom page for each one of our main product categories. This gives us flexibility to create a unique layout for our product listings, as well as adding any other stacks and content we wish.
Run Time 10:23
In this lesson you’ll learn how to build a custom homepage using Stacks that lists out all your store categories, handy if you want complete control over the layout of your products rather than replying on RapidCart Pro’s built in pages.
Run Time 22:50
In this lesson we’ll look at how to create reusable site-wide content using Stacks’ Partials feature. Using Partials we’ll add a site-wide footer which will include an interactive Google Map.
Run Time 16:12
Once again, in a similar fashion to how we built the custom product and category pages, we can even use Stacks to build a custom RapidCart Pro store page. This also gives us the convenience of RapidCart Pro’s built-in product listing features alongside the flexibility of Stacks. Combining the two allows us to build a powerful store homepage. We’ll also look at some advanced ways to customise the entire look of our RapidCart Pro store.
Run Time 24:06
If you’re running a serious business online, your store will need the ability to offer discounts, optionally add costs (such as a card processing fee), and setup multiple shipping options for your customers. In this lesson you’ll learn exactly how to do that as we discover the powerful options available in RapidCart Pro.
Run Time 12:58
There are times when you’ll want to be able to promote certain products across your entire store — an end of season sale for example, or perhaps the latest fashion item added to your catalog. In this lesson you’ll learn how to promote products across your entire store, and optionally add promotional discounts to those products. Also, in this final lesson, you’ll learn how to use RapidCart Pro’s webhook feature with Zapier to automate the process of adding your customer’s email addresses to a newsletter list in MailChimp.
