What is a WordPress.com account?

A WordPress.com account is the passport that allows you to access WooCommerce.com and other services owned by Automattic.

Why do I need a WordPress.com account to login into the WooCommerce mobile app?

We have switched sign in to WooCommerce.com over to WordPress.com. To shop and manage purchases on WooCommerce.com, you’ll need to create and/or connect an existing WordPress.com account.

The WooCommerce mobile app needs to create a connection to your website. This is important for WooCommerce stores as orders and sales data are sent to your mobile devices. That secure connection is provided via Jetpack

To install Jetpack plugin you need a WordPress.com account.

Where do I find my WordPress.com account?
