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 such as Jetpack, Gravatar, and Akismet.

We use a WordPress.com account to manage logins for WooCommerce.com. To shop and manage purchases on WooCommerce.com, you’ll need to use your WordPress.com account.

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

There are two ways to connect the Woo Mobile app to your store.

  • If you do not use Jetpack or any extensions powered by Jetpack, you can use the same credentials you use to log into your store to link to the mobile app.
  • If you use the Jetpack plugin or have a plugin that uses a Jetpack connection, you will log into the app with your WordPress.com account. Using the Jetpack plugin enables the app to send push notifications for new orders, show stats, and connect multiple stores with one login.

Where do I find my WordPress.com account?
