WooCommerce

WooCommerce is a free ecommerce plugin authored by Automattic and compatible with WordPress single sites and multisites on VIP.

Caution

It is strongly recommended to maintain the version of WooCommerce installed on an environment at the highest point release possible, to ensure security protections and better performance. Versions of WooCommerce prior to 4.9.1 are known to have issues with an uncaught ArgumentCountError in the customer password reset routine, and cannot be supported by VIP Support.

The most recent release version can be downloaded from the WooCommerce website.

The WooCommerce plugin can be downloaded and installed by following VIP’s documentation for adding plugins to a VIP application.

For some sites on the VIP platform, WooCommerce might perform as expected without code modifications. However, customization for WooCommerce might be needed based on the size of a product list, the volume of orders received each day (or hour), the number of countries where transactions can occur, and more.

It is recommended that VIP customers have their development team handle WooCommerce customizations and caching optimizations, perform plugin upgrades and troubleshooting, and apply best practices for all aspects of application development and management.

The WooCommerce Development Resources provides extensive documentation for working with and developing for WooCommerce.
