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


At a minimum, the VIP Platform recommends maintaining the version of Woo installed on an environment at the highest point release possible to include security protections. The most recent release version can download from the WooCommerce website.

The WooCommerce plugin can be downloaded and installed by following VIP’s documentation for adding WordPress 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 for VIP customers to have their own development team to handle WooCommerce customizations, caching optimizations, perform plugin upgrades and troubleshooting, as well as applying best practices for all aspects of application development and management.

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