Zero Downtime: The Foolproof Way to Update Your WooCommerce
It’s taken our team of WooCommerce specialists 10 years to perfect a foolproof system for updating a WooCommerce site. What do we mean by “foolproof”? We mean that if you follow these step-by-step instructions, you can update your store with zero risk of downtime and lost sales.
This is not a theoretical claim. We’ve applied the system to tens of thousands of updates across hundreds of sites. But until today the system has been available only to our clients.
Now, we’re giving it away (for the moment).
Because we know it’s not all pina coladas and passive income for online store owners. We know how hard you work and what you’ll lose if your store goes down. So if we can help, we will.
That’s why we’ve laid out our whole system in this free (currently) guide.
