RT @GunsnBitcoin: "The goal is to showcase the cheapest possible way you can have a small self-sovereign e-store and earn Bitcoin by selling products or services." https://t.co/2oses9MGwB Even if you have a job, building a small business will increase your financial independence.
This tutorial is experimental. It is also not made for complete newbies. You should have some basic command line and WordPress knowledge. The goal is to have a simple, small store with a few products. This method for the specific hosting provider also uses a method of validating a full node by fast syncing it from a trusted node.
Please approach this tutorial as a proof of concept. It works, but if you can find a VPS that has a little bit more power than the one used, you can have the woocommerce + btcpay on a single server without having to sync from a trusted full node.
Awesome tutorial! Thanks for sharing it.

Am I right that with Neutrino, when it is going to be more widely supported, this could even be avoided without making the setup time longer and still preserving the same level of trustlessness than a full node?
No, Neutrino does not preserve the same level of trustlessness than a full node.
Full node validate everything, Neutrino trusts somebody else to do the work.
For a server, there is no need (aside from the IBD -initial block download-) to run Neutrino.
And even if IBD is the problem, you can use [FastSync](https://github.com/btcpayserver/btcpayserver-docker/blob/master/contrib/FastSync/README.md), as you will continue to validate full rules once you are synced. (There is some trust to the UTXO set provider though, you can read more on the link)
