    I notice version 1.9.9 is out as the latest EDD update.

    Can someone tell me what is the correct procedure to update any plugin / themes?
    What happens to a site when plugins /themes are updated - is the site still live etc.

    I have searched for this but I am still unclear?

    The update notification will show up in your WordPress Plugins page, and along with it will be a link that says "Install Update Now". All you need to do is click that :) The update will be installed and everything will remain running exactly (just better) as it was before.

    Ok thanks for that, so what happens if a buyer is currently using my site and EDD is being accessed and the update is being made at the same time; is there any chance it will create any errors in the buying process - even for a split second?

    It is technically possible but the likelihood is extremely small.
