Purchase WooCommerce Zapier¶
To use WooCommerce Zapier, you will need to purchase the WooCommerce Zapier extension from the WooCommerce.com Extension Store.
You will also need a Zapier Account.
Zapier Offers Both Free and Paid Plans
WooCommerce Zapier can be used with a free Zapier plan, however, advanced functionality such as Premium Apps, Multi-step Zaps (to use Filter and Paths) are only available for paid plans.
Free plans also have limits on the number of tasks per month, so WooCommerce stores with higher order volumes will be more likely to need a paid Zapier plan.
For further information on pricing see Zapier’s Plans & Pricing page.
If you don’t have one, you can sign up on the Zapier website. Select the Sign Up button or just enter your information in the available form.

2. File Upload¶
You can also log in to your WooCommerce’s account and go to the Downloads page to download the latest zip file of the extension to your computer.
From your WordPress Dashboard, go to Side Menu → Plugins screen and click the Add New and then Upload Plugin button at the top of the page. Select the zip file from your computer and click the Install Now button then the Activate button to active WooCommerce Zapier.
Some web browsers automatically unarchive downloaded Zip files. Make sure this functionality is disabled.
We also suggest going to WordPress Dashboard → Side Menu → WooCommerce → Extensions → WooCommerce.com Extensions screen to connect your WooCommerce.com account, so that you have access to future WooCommerce Zapier versions from within your WordPress Dashboard.
Check the Installation¶
Finally, it is best to go to the WordPress Dashboard → Side Menu → WooCommerce → Status screen, and review the Active Plugins section to ensure that the WooCommerce Zapier plugin is up to date.
WooCommerce Zapier is now installed.
