WooCommerce is a popular open source eCommerce plugin for WordPress that can power online storefronts to sell both digital and physical products for small-to-large businesses. A variety of themes for WooCommerce are available so you can create a store that looks the way you want it to. WooCommerce takes payments via major credit cards, bank transfers, PayPal, and other providers like Stripe. The WooCommerce plugin is free, but some themes and extensions have a cost.
Deploying the WooCommerce Marketplace App
The Linode Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Linode using the Linode Cloud Manager.
Log in to the Cloud Manager and select the Marketplace link from the left navigation menu. This displays the Linode Compute Create page with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.
Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy.
Fill out all required Options for the selected app as well as any desired Advanced Options (which are optional). See the Configuration Options section for details.
Complete the rest of the form as discussed within the Getting Started > Create a Linode.
Click the Create Linode button. Once the Linode has provisioned and has fully powered on, wait for the software installation to complete. If the Linode is powered off or restarted before this time, the software installation will likely fail. To determine if the installation has completed, open the Linode’s Lish console and wait for the system login prompt to appear.
Follow the instructions within the Getting Started After Deployment section.
Software installation should complete within 2-5 minutes after the Linode has finished provisioning.

Getting Started After Deployment
After WooCommerce has finished installing, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provided during configuration, at which point you will be able to access your site.
Access Your WooCommerce Site
After WooCommerce and WordPress have finished installing, you will be able to access your site by copying your Linode’s IPv4 address and entering it in the browser of your choice. To find your Linode’s IPv4 address:
Click on the Linodes link in the sidebar. You will see a list of all your Linodes.
Find the Linode you just created when deploying your app and select it.
Navigate to the Networking tab.
Your IPv4 address will be listed under the Address column in the IPv4 table.
Copy and paste the IPv4 address into a browser window. You should see your WooCommerce site’s home page.
Once you have accessed your site via the browser, you can log in to the WordPress administrative interface and start configuring your store.
The address of the WordPress login page is
http://< your IP address >/wp-login.php. Or, you can click on the log in link that’s visible on your site’s home page, as highlighted below. Enter the credentials you previously specified in the Admin Username and Admin Password fields when you deployed the app.
Complete the WooCommerce Setup Wizard
When you first log in to the WordPress admin interface, you will be presented with a banner that asks you to complete the WooCommerce setup wizard:
