- Purchase & install the Zapier for WooCommerce plugin onto your WordPress site
- Go to WordPress > Plugins > Add new > Upload Plugin
- Drag and drop the .zip file into the upload zone
- Click the blue active plugin button
- Create a free Zapier Account
- Once you create your Zapier account you will leave the screen open and return back to your account when the other connections are made
