Upgrading to ShopWP Pro

Welcome to our ShopWP Pro upgrade guide! ๐Ÿ‘

Before we get started, keep in mind that ShopWP and ShopWP Pro are separate, independent plugins. As a result, you should never have both activated at once. You'll want to either use one or the other. Also, rest assured that the upgrade process will not remove any content you may have added, including synced product posts, updated settings, etc.

1. Purchase a License Key

Before you can start using ShopWP Pro, you must purchase a license key first. You can do this by visiting our purchase page.
