The WooCommerce Explained Book Is Ready for WooCommerce 3.7

The WooCommerce Explained Book Is Ready for WooCommerce 3.7

This week we’ve published a major update for WooCommerce Explained, the best-selling WooCommerce book.

This book will teach you everything you need to know to make a WooCommerce site. And, it will do it in plain English, with a simple step-by-step approach.

WooCommerce 3.7 was released last week. This new version has lots of improvements and changes, including more Gutenberg blocks.

More Major Changes Coming to WooCommerce

This may be one of the last updates to WooCommerce Explained before we see an entirely new admin experience. The new Javascript-driven admin screens are available now as a plugin on Over 400,000 people are using it already.

Originally, the WooCommerce team planned to merge the new admin into this 3.7 release. Obviously that’s been delayed, but probably not for long: “we decided to defer to possibly include in WooCommerce 3.8”.

The image below is an official preview of the new admin area, complete with vastly improved analytics. We’ll update WooCommerce Explained as soon as this new admin goes live!
