FAQ

Read the full list of FAQ

How does this work?

You can think of WordPress as the frontend and Shopify as the backend. You manage your store (add products, change prices, etc) from within Shopify and those changes sync into WordPress. WP Shopify also allows you to sell your products and is bundled with a cart experience using the Shopify Buy Button SDK.

After installing the plugin you connect your Shopify store to WordPress by filling in your Shopify API keys. After syncing, you can display / sell your products in various ways such as:

  1. Using the default pages “yoursite.com/products” and “yoursite.com/collections“
  2. Shortcodes [wps_products] and [wps_collections]

We also save your Shopify products as Custom Post Types enabling you to harness the native power of WordPress.

Doesn’t Shopify already have a WordPress plugin?

Technically yes but it has been discontinued.

Shopify has instead moved attention to their Buy Button which is an open-source library that allows you to embed products with snippets of HTML and JavaScript. The main drawback to this is that Shopify uses iFrames for the embeds which limit the ability for layout customizations.

WP Shopify instead uses a combination of the Buy Button and Shopify API to create an iFrame-free experience. This gives allows you to sync Shopify data directly into WordPress. We also save the products and collections as Custom Post Types which unlocks the native power of WordPress.

Is this SEO friendly?

We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure we’ve conformed to all the SEO best practices including semantic alt text, Structured Data, and indexable content.

Does this work with third party Shopify apps?

Unfortunately no. We rely on the main Shopify API which doesn’t expose third-party app data. However the functionality found in many of the Shopify apps can be reproduced by other WordPress plugins.

How do I display my products?

Documentation on how to display your products can be found here.

How does the checkout process work?

WP Shopify does not handle any portion of the checkout process. When a customer clicks the checkout button within the cart, they’re redirected to the default Shopify checkout page to finish the process. The checkout page is opened in a new tab.

More information on the Shopify checkout process can be found here.

Does this work with Shopify’s Lite plan?

Absolutely! In fact this is our recommendation if you intend to only sell on WordPress. More information on Shopify’s Lite plan

Reviews

Paid for Pro – Lackluster Support

Was having so many issues with the free version I decided to upgrade to pro for the support and possible fixes. After going through their support channel I see a lot of slow responses and unresolved issues. Developers seem to be too busy to deal with problems, was told twice I would see a fix for my own issue a week out without them meeting the deadline. Stay away.

Fantastic customer support

I ultimately ended up using Shopify’s platform, but my time with this service was excellent and Andrew is super helpful! He made everything easy for me. I highly recommend this plugin!

Lifesaver!

I can’t imagine how much of a pain this would be, if I had to enter code for every buy button, or every collection to post from Shopify. This makes things relatively automatic, and it really works! The plugin’s documentation is extensive, and if you still have answers, Andrew, the developer is amazing at providing prompt, helpful, pleasant, funny support. He’s just a pleasure to deal with! And this, I’m getting with my trial of the FREE version! I can’t wait to get some sales made, so I can guy the full version!

Incredible Support!

Andrew, the developer, is always available when I have questions about this plugin. He is courteous and efficient and offered an immediate fix earlier today when I was having a problem updating a product variation. Fantastic Plugin and Fantastic Support. Can’t recommend Andrew and his plugin enough!

Everything we ever needed

I’ve been following the development of wphopify since day 1 and boy oh boy am I glad this was released on the plugin store!! Good stuff Andrew, this is gods work.

1.2.7

Hot fix for 1.2.6

1.2.6

Greetings! 👋

A long awaited feature has been released this week: the ability to easily change UI colors such as the add to cart button and cart icon. You can find these new color options within the subnav links “Products” and “Cart” inside the plugin settings.

In addition to more UI customizations coming in 1.2.7, there are also exciting features coming in a few months. One of these features include custom Gutenberg blocks which will create a really powerful way to show your products. Really excited about this. Shortcodes will remain functional, but the Gutenberg blocks will most likely replace shortcodes as the default way to show your Shopify products. Expect this to arrive in 3-5 months. Some other features include native featured images and a dedicated REST API. Stay tuned!

  • New Feature Plugin setting allowing users to change colors of various UI elements like the add to cart button, cart icon, etc
  • Updated Updated plugin settings UI layout
  • Updated Updated icons on plugin settings page

Greetings!

The major update in this release is regarding sales channel syncing. WP Shopify will now only sync products which are assigned to the custom sales channel you create during setup. This allows you to sync only the products you want to show on WordPress instead of your entire store. Moving forward, make sure any products you want to show on WordPress are assigned to your custom Sales Channel.

  • New Feature: Ability to opt-in to Beta versions of WP Shopify. You can now turn this on within the plugin settings.
  • Updated: Only products that are assigned to the WP Shopify sales channel will now sync.
  • Fixed: Bug causing manually sorted products inside collections to display in the incorrect order.
