Hi Jane Davies,
plese follow this steps to make home page like our Home Woocommerce demo page:
1> After you install woocommerce plugin, create a new page and place this shortcode to content area, switching from visual to text buttom in right top corner above content area.
[recent_products per_page="12" columns="4" orderby="date" order="desc"];
Above attribute function as:
per_page = “No of products to show in page”
columns = “No of columns”
Note: If you want to keep this woocomerce page as your home-page, go to dashoboard->setting->reading. Inside reading menu you will find front page display sections, where you need to select your page from “front page dropdown” .You can manage this page from dashboard->appearance->menus as per your requirement.
