I recently ran across the following YouTube tutorial which allowed me to bang out a professional looking website fairly quickly (over a few days). If creating a website has become a pain point for you, consider following the steps outlined in this video:
The instructor uses WordPress and the theme OceanWP along with Elementor page builder (all free). The only costs are your domain name and site hosting. For that, the instructor provides a discount code for HostGator and shows you step-by-step how to set it all up.
The video is 90 minutes long. Obviously, you will need to stop the video repeatedly as you work on building your own site.
Here’s the site I created: http://www.landcorral.com
I hope this helps somebody new to all of this.

Your website looks great Neil. Did you end up purchasing premium theme with it or you’re using oceanWP theme?Neil HParticipantSeptember 17, 2018 at 8:34 amPost count: 70
Thanks, Milan. I’m just using OceanWP. I had originally purchased a different theme (Residence), but I found dealing with the template and page builder too daunting and confusing. As a result, I was about to hire somebody to create the site but that’s when I found the tutorial and decided to start from scratch with OceanWP. Elementor is fairly easy to work with and the video really steps you through the process.Chuck LidtkaParticipantSeptember 17, 2018 at 9:09 amPost count: 115

Can can you add a payment gateway to oceanwp for cash pmts? ThanksNeil HParticipantSeptember 17, 2018 at 7:31 pmPost count: 70
@rodhall98: As far as payment plugins, it appears Heartland Payment Systems are integrated into a number of plugins, including Shopify and WooCommerce (which are all supported on WordPress). https://www.heartlandpaymentsystems.com/e-commerce
OceanWp is just a WordPress (WP) theme, so any WP plugin should work on any WP theme (with few exceptions, I imagine). That all said, others on this forum who have ‘Buy Now’ buttons on their websites are better equipped to answer your question.
