In the search field type “EDD Steem” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our eCommerce plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

Updating

Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.
