Installing

caution

Before you can use ShopWP you must already 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.

As mentioned in the introduction, ShopWP comes in two versions; a free version and a Pro version. They are two seperate plugins and only one should be activated at any given time. Installing is like any other WordPress plugin, but there are some specific steps that need to be taken for the Pro version. If you're upgrading from free to Pro please read the Upgrading section.

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!
