To install the plugin you can either use the WordPress plugin installer (this applies to the free version of jigoshop only) or do a manual installation:

  1. Download the plugin file to your computer
  2. Unzip the file
  3. Using an FTP program, or your hosting control panel, upload the unzipped plugin folder to your WordPress installation’s wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  4. Activate the plugin from WordPress admin.

Upon activation, Jigoshop will install several things that it requires to function correctly:

  • Several new pages
    1. My Account > Edit my address, View Order
    2. Cart
    3. Checkout > Pay, Thank you
    4. Track your order
  • Custom post types for orders and products
  • Custom taxonomies for orders and products
  • Several new widgets
  • Several new shortcodes

Do not delete the installed pages unless you know what you are doing - the plugin needs these to show parts such as the cart and the checkout process.
