Installing

ShopWP comes in two versions; a free version and a Pro version. The free version is no longer maintained. They are two separate plugins and only one should be activated at once.

caution

Before you can install any version of ShopWP, you must have an active Shopify store. The plugin is compatible with any Shopify plan including 14-day free trials and the more affordable $9 Lite plan.

info

If you're upgrading from free to Pro, please read the Upgrading guide.

We recommended the Shopify Lite plan if you intend to only sell on WordPress and other sales channels such as Facebook or Instagram. All plugin features will work with Shopify Lite and is a great option if want to save money!
