7. Where is my WooCommerce login information?
You don’t have a separate WooCommerce login for admin area because WooCommerce is a WordPress plugin. To login to your WordPress dashboard, simply use the WordPress login link.
However your customers will have a WooCommerce login, so they can login to their account area to keep track of orders. You can see our step by step guide on how to create custom login forms for WordPress.

Since WooCommerce is a free software, there is limited WooCommerce support available through WordPress community forums as well as the official WooCommerce website.
Majority of WooCommerce support is provided by your WooCommerce hosting provider or the individual WooCommerce theme and extension developers.
