How do I add a plugin to WooCommerce?

Last updated on September 24, 2022 @ 10:27 pm

Adding a plugin to WooCommerce can be a daunting task if you’re not familiar with the process. Here are four tips to help you get started:

1. Read the documentation

WooCommerce is packed with features, and it can be difficult to know where to start when looking for plugins. The best way to find what you’re looking for is to read the documentation.

WooCommerce documentation is available in the plugin’s homepage, or you can access it by clicking on the “Documentation” tab in the plugin’s admin panel.

2. Use the plugin search function

WooCommerce has a built-in plugin search function that can help you find the plugin you’re looking for. To use the plugin search function, first make sure you have the plugin installed.

PRO TIP: Adding a plugin to WooCommerce can be done by anyone with admin access to a WordPress site. However, it is important to be cautious when adding plugins to a WooCommerce site, as some plugins can conflict with WooCommerce or other plugins, and cause errors. It is always best to consult with a developer before adding any plugins, to ensure compatibility.

Then, in the admin panel, click on the “Products” tab, and then click on the “Add Product” button. Finally, in the “Product Information” tab, enter the keyword search term in the “Search” field.

3. Use the plugin’s support forum

If you’re unable to find the plugin you’re looking for in the documentation or the plugin search function, you can try contacting the plugin’s support forum. Many plugin authors maintain support forums where users can ask questions and receive help.

4. Use the plugin’s search function on

If you’re looking for a plugin that doesn’t have a WooCommerce plugin available, you can try searching for it on is a repository of plugins for WordPress, and it’s a great resource for finding plugins that aren’t available through the WooCommerce plugin directory.
