Welcome to our guide on upgrading to WP Shopify Pro! 👍

Before we get started, keep in mind that WP Shopify and WP Shopify Pro are separate, independent plugins. Therefore, you should never have both activated at once. You'll want to either use one or the other. Also rest assured that the upgrade process will not remove any content you may have added, including synced Shopify data, updated settings, etc.

1. Purchase a License Key

Before you can start using WP Shopify Pro you must first purchase a license key.
