How does the plugin work?
The WooCommerce Private Store plugin password protects all the pages within your WooCommerce online store. The rest of your WordPress site remains public - e.g. your homepage and other pages. However the WooCommerce elements - your main Shop page, products, categories, product tag archives and the cart and checkout are password protected and hidden from search engines.
Will anyone know my private WooCommerce store exists?
Only if you want them to! If you like, you can link to your private store from the menu or anywhere else on your public website (e.g. a 'Wholesale Login' link in the header). When people click it, they will be taken to the WooCommerce login page where they can enter a password.
Or alternatively, you can keep your WooCommerce store completely hidden with no public links to it. The only way people will know it exists is if you give them the link.
How does the password protection work?
You can make WooCommerce private by activating the plugin and setting 1 or more passwords. All WooCommerce pages will be protected. Customers must enter a correct password to unlock the private WooCommerce store. Customers only need to enter the password once to access the entire store.
Can I have a separate private WooCommerce shop for each user?
No - WooCommerce Private Store protects your entire store. Once customers unlock it by entering a correct password, they will have access to your whole WooCommerce shop.
To create user-specific private areas with different products for each user, you can use our other plugin WooCommerce Password Protected Categories. This lets you create a separate protected category for each user.
Will my products be hidden from search engines?
Yes, the WooCommerce Private Store plugin hides all parts of your online shop from search engines and the WordPress search on your site. This includes your shop page, product pages, category pages, tag archives etc.
Can my WooCommerce store have public AND private areas?
The WooCommerce Private Store plugin hides your entire shop (but not your normal WordPress pages and posts). To create separate public and private areas in WooCommerce, you'll need our WooCommerce Password Protected Categories plugin instead.
Will it work with my theme?
We have tested WooCommerce Private Store with a range of free and premium themes and are confident it will work with your theme. If you have any problems (e.g. a cart icon showing in the header), get in touch and we will be happy to add further support for your theme.
Will it work in my language?
The WooCommerce Private Store plugin is 100% certified as being compatible with WPML, the world's leading WordPress multilingual plugin. This makes it easy for you to translate it into other languages.
Do I have to pay every year?
You’re buying a plugin product from us, but it comes backed by our service: we work to continually add new features, important security updates, and efficient customer support. We thus use annual subscriptions to ensure we can continue bringing these benefits to you.
You’ll be charged automatically once a year, but we’ll remind you before this happens – and you can of course, cancel any time. If your license expires, you can keep using the plugin but won't receive any more support or updates. (We’ll keep your licence active until the end of your current billing cycle, so you always get what you’ve paid for.)
Which versions of WooCommerce and WordPress are supported?
The plugin is fully integrated and tested with the latest versions of WooCommerce and WordPress.
WooCommerce - 2.4 and up (tested to 3.4.2)
WordPress - 4.1 and up (tested to 4.9.6)
PHP - 5.2.6 and up (PHP 7.2 compatible)
