WooCommerce is a powerful but complex system, and larger installations often have some additional plugins or custmisations.
After updating the WooCommerce plugin, or any other related plugins, it’s important to test your store to ensure everything works as expected and any bugs are identified and fixed.
Here’s a handy list to help get your store back online quickly and without issues.
Post Update Checklist
After updating WooCommerce run through these tasks
- Add a product to the cart, but add more than 1 of the item – sometimes the data structure changes and it’s important to ensure multiple products can be added at once.
- Complete a checkout – ensure everything works as expected and all of the emails are received.
Tip: Pay by Cheque or Enable Cash on Delivery to avoid having to make an actual payment.
