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 the 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 a password. All WooCommerce pages will be protected by this password. Customers must enter the correct password to unlock the private WooCommerce store. They will then have access to your entire store. Customers only need to enter the password once.
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 the 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.
Can my WooCommerce store have both public AND private areas?
The WooCommerce Private Store plugin hides your entire shop. To create separate public and private areas in WooCommerce, you'll need our WooCommerce Password Protected Categories plugin instead.
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. so you don't need to worry about people finding your private shop.
Will it work with my theme?
We have tested WooCommerce Private Store thoroughly with a range of free and premium themes and are confident it will work with your theme.
If you have any problems with your theme (e.g. a cart icon showing in the header), please get in touch and we will be happy to add further support for your theme.
Do I have to pay every year?
When you buy the plugin, you will be signed up to an annual subscription. If you ever cancel, you will continue to receive plugin updates and support until the end of the current billing cycle (i.e. 1 year after your last payment). After that, you can continue using the plugin but will no longer have access to support or plugin updates, so we recommend keeping your subscription active.
