WooCommerce Setup Wizard


Having a customizable e-commerce platform means that there are a lot of available settings to tweak. The Setup Wizard takes you through all necessary steps to set up your store and get ready to start selling!

Welcome to WooCommerce ↑ Back to top

Immediately after activating the plugin, you are taken to the Setup Wizard. You can use the wizard, or skip it and manually set up everything.

The first page will ask you to set up the location and currency of your store, as well as what type of goods you’re planning on selling.

Payment ↑ Back to top

Choose how you want to be paid.

  • PayPal powered by Braintree and/or Stripe — free and separate plugins we maintain — are downloaded automatically from WordPress.org
  • You can create a new Stripe account if you don’t have one already
  • Enter the email address associated with your PayPal account, if selecting Paypal Standard as a payment gateway

Shipping ↑ Back to top

USPS Shipping can be enabled for your store if you reside in the United States. Select the unit of measurement for weight and dimensions from the dropdown (all locations). Canada Post rates can be pulled in for calculating shipping, if you’re based in Canada.

*Store owners outside the United States and Canada will not see these options.

Extras ↑ Back to top

If you haven’t yet chosen a theme, WooCommerce can automatically install and activate the Storefront theme. We also can automatically calculate taxes using the WooCommerce plugin.
