2. Download the Newsletters – WooCommerce Subscribers (free) in a ZIP archive.


Automatic Installation

3. Go to Plugins > Add New > Upload in your WordPress dashboard where you can browse to the file and then click the “Install Now” button. Upon successful installation you will be given the option to activate the plugin immediately so you can click the “Activate Plugin” link and skip the upcoming activation instructions.



Manual Installation

1. Extract the ZIP archive named in order to be presented with a single folder named newsletters-woocommerce.

2. Upload the newsletters-woocommerce folder to the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation, as seen in the example image below. Follow the upcoming activation instructions to activate the Newsletters-WooCommerce extension plugin.



Once you have installed the WooCommerce Subscribers extension via FTP you need to activate it.

To activate it you need to go to the normal Plugins > Installed Plugins section via your admin sidebar. There you will see the extension as a plugin listed amongst other plugins, as in the screenshots below:

Before Activation

After Activation

Once activated you will see it listed in the Newsletters > Extensions section (via the “Newsletters” menu item in the admin sidebar), as seen in this image below:




In order to use this plugin, your checkout page must use the [woocommerce_checkout] shortcode. If you realize, after activation and testing this, that your clients are not turning to subscribers, it might be that WooCommerce is using the Block Editor checkout, which in turn is not triggering this extension’s hooks. So, just remove the checkout form generated by the Block Editor, and then only add the [woocommerce_checkout] shortcode in your checkout page. You should be fine if you are using the Classic Editor, but do make sure of the above.
