Last update: 11 October, 2016

This is a guide on how to install the Yoast WooCommerce SEO plugin. As soon as you’ve bought the plugin from us, you’ll receive an email with a link to the plugin files and your license key. This email will look something like this:

Keep your license key from the purchase email handy and also, you need to have downloaded the .zip file. Leave this file zipped!

This item will then be highlighted and your current plugins will be shown in a list. You can now also check here if you actually have the WooCommerce plugin and the Yoast SEO plugin installed. If not, install them (or one of them) first.

If they are installed, click the ‘Add New’ button in the left hand menu. On that page, click ‘Upload’, as shown in this picture:

Click the ‘Choose File’ button and navigate to the folder where you downloaded the zipped file to. Select the .zip file and click ok. When you have found the right file, it should look like the picture below, after which you can click the ‘Install Now’ button, which is highlighted for you:
