Update: WooCommerce 4.0+ supports a new single-product Wordpress template for the product pages.

We currently offer limited WooCommerce support for Advanced Blog subscriptions*. WooCommerce is a great solution for advanced users who like to DIY projects. We suggest Shopify Lite for a simple store solution.

WooCommerce's default output seems to be working well with our Showit theme but customization options are limited.


Give it a Try:

Requirement: Advanced Blog Subscription

  1. Update your Showit plugin to version 3.0.1 or newer for compatibility with WooCommerce. 

  2. Then install the WooCommerce plugin.


Things to Know:

  • Individual product pages will by default use the Single Post template for their layouts. Alternatively, you can create a custom WordPress template with the name: single-product to provide a different layout that would be used for all of your product pages.

  • A 'Page' blog template is required for the Shop, Cart, Checkout, and Taxonomy pages to render correctly. (see here)

Migrating a current WooCommerce store?

  • Before you start the migration process please turn off purchasing on your store. The Woo Store Vacation plugin is a good option. It can be reactivated once fully switched over to the Showit server.

*Requires an Advanced Blog subscription
***Showit does not offer support for setting up or operating third-party plugins, including WooCommerce. We also cannot be responsible for changes that the plugin developers release which may break compatibility with our Showit theme.

Tip: If you're looking for a simple store option we suggest Shopify Lite for embedding single item buy buttons directly onto Showit pages using our Embed Code widget or a Basic Shopify account to host a separate online store under a subdomain like shop.yourdomain.com
