Last updated on September 30, 2022 @ 1:52 pm

Are you looking to move your WooCommerce store to a new host, or perhaps you’re just getting started with WooCommerce and want to know the best way to transfer your account? In this article, we’ll explore how to transfer your WooCommerce account, step by step.

We’ll also provide some tips on what to look for in a new host, in case you’re considering making a change.

There are a few different ways to go about transferring your WooCommerce account. The most important thing is to make sure that all of your data is backed up before you begin the transfer process. Once you have a backup, you can choose one of the following methods:

1. Use an FTP client to export your data

If you’re comfortable using an FTP client, you can export your data directly from your old host. Simply connect to your old host using an FTP client and navigate to the /wp-content/ folder.

From here, you can download the entire folder to your computer. Once the download is complete, you can upload it to your new host and import it into your new WordPress installation.

2. Use a WordPress plugin

There are a few WordPress plugins that can help you export your data from one WordPress installation to another. One of the most popular plugins is WP Migrate DB Pro. This plugin will help you export your database and media files from one WordPress installation and import them into another.

3. Use the WordPress Export Tool

If you’re not comfortable using an FTP client or a plugin, you can use the WordPress Export Tool to export your data. Simply log into your old WordPress installation and navigate to Tools > Export.

From here, you can choose what data you want to export (Posts, Pages, etc.). Once you’ve made your selection, click the Export button and save the file to your computer.


Now that you know how to transfer your WooCommerce account, it’s time to start thinking about what kind of host you want for your new store. When choosing a new host, be sure to consider things like price, features, customer support, and uptime.
