How to install WooCommerce

Once you download the WooCommerce zip file, you can upload it to your WordPress web server using your favorite FTP application. Here’s how.

  1. Unzip the file locally so that you have the woocommerce/ folder on your hard drive.
  2. Transfer the extracted folder to the wp-content/plugins directory of your WordPress site via SFTP or remote file manager.
  3. From the Plugins menu in the Administration Screen, click Activate for the transferred plugin.

“The expandability of Woo is great, we moved to Woo because of the customizability. With Shopify, everything is behind a paywall and makes it difficult to test and develop.”

The power of true ownership

WooCommerce is open source, giving merchants full ownership over their store and their data. When you create a Woo store, it’s yours forever — not something you’re renting. It also means you can choose your preferred host based on your needs for cost, scalability, and feature sets.
