From time to time, BigCommerce release updates to BigCommerce for WordPress. When this occurs, you’ll need to update the plugin on your site. In this video, we’ll show you how to update BigCommerce for WordPress to get the latest features and security fixes.
Thankfully, WordPress makes this process clear, easy and even provides a notice when updates are available.
To get started, visit the Plugins menu to view your Installed Plugins.
When a new version is available, you will see a notice appear beneath the plugin. This notice includes links to the version details and to perform the update.
We strongly recommend you test all updates is a staging environment, whether you’re updating BigCommerce, WordPress, your theme, or your other plugins.
While BigCommerce thoroughly tests every release they publish, it’s impossible to know in advance if some other factor on your particular site might create an issue.
Once you’ve confirmed that your store looks and works as expected after updating on Staging, you can confidently update it in your public, production environment.
And that’s all there is to it. You’ve successfully updated BigCommerce for WordPress!
