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

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.
