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 β€œyoursite.com/products” and β€œyoursite.com/collectionsβ€œ
  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

I purchased the pro version, and Andrew was very helpful over chat when I didn't manage to set up the plug in properly. Everything works well and as expected. Highly recommended!

Andrew stands behind his work 100%. Anytime i have had an issue he takes care of it really fast. If your looking for a plug in with REAL CUSTOMER SUPPORT, Look no further. This is a Great Product with Great customer support. No doubt!

There's just not a lot out there that will seamlessly connect Shopify and WordPress, but this plugin does it well. Shopify has some limitations which affect how well it plays with WordPress, but the developer of WP Shopify is extremely helpful and provides fantastic support. Highly recommend!

Hi, I tried to activate your plugin in our WP framework and noticed that you are defining the wordpress abspath as home_path if the function get_home_path exist so impossible to activate it... If you are using a different structure for wordpress impossible to activate the plugin, we had to force the path as the default ABSPATH in your class-util.php line 314. So might have problems in the futur for upgrades. Have you noticed any similar problems before ? Regards, Alan

After using this on a couple sites I continue to be impressed. I love working with WooCommerce but sometimes Shopify is a better fit for the project or you have a history of transactions and customers in an existing Shopify instance. This plugin makes the integration very intuitive and there are plenty of options to get your store looking just as you'd like through the plugin settings and using familiar WordPress theme customizations and template hierarchy.

I was looking for a solution to bring Shopify to my sites while keeping the power of the WordPress backend. WP Shopify was exactly what I was looking for, and also has easy templating so that a developer like me can extend functionality as needed, just like I would with any other WordPress site! Also, I ran into an issue and the creator very helpfully spent a good amount of his time debugging in real time - amazing! World-class support. Version 2.0 fixed a few syncing issues and I Couldn't be more happy!
