Hello, this is my first time building an eCommerce site and I have some questions about the Woocommerce plugin. I realize that this may not be the appropriate forum for these questions but I'm not sure where else to go, because Woocommerce will not provide support until I make a purchase from them (and most of these questions need to be answered before a purchase). That said, if you know a forum that's more appropriate for these Q&A's, please point me in that direction.
1.Do I necessarily need a vendor extension for shipping? What's the benefit of adding one? I did some research around each of the major 3 to find out what differentiates them (other than the obvious), like does one provide address validation? unfortunately none of the descriptions went into that level of detail.
2. Whats the best place to install Google Analytics tracking code? The theme has a designation, woocommerce has a designation, the SEO plugin I use has a designation, or I could put it in the actual header file. In order to protect the accuracy of the data I don't want to place the code in all 3 or 4 spots.
3. I see that the theme has menu options for tracking code by default, does this mean that I need a 3rd party extension to provide the code? If so, how does that extension make the code accesible to the client via this menu option? If not where does the code come from and what do I need to do in order to have it activated?
Thanks in advance for your help or for pointing me in the right direction...
