For a newbie, it is quite easy to assume, that testing is executing various sections of code and verifying the results. But in real world, testing is a very formal activity. The degree of formality depends on the type of application under test and standards followed by the organization & maturity of development process.
What I am trying to do here is, to give you a brief on what all sections need a look over, while running a test through an ecommerce or a woo-commerce website.
Though they look simple, ecommerce/woo-commerce sites can get very complicated. Below is a kick start, at testing an ecommerce/woo-commerce site before the final launch.
As an initial step, we should run through the main functionality of an ecommerce/woo-commerce website that needs to be tested. The website to test may not have all the items, or may have some, not included here.
