Installation instructions and options in WooCommerce - In this article, we will talk about all the settings that you access at WooCommerce. You will know about the Chung WooCommerce installation with product settings, taxes, payments, shipping, accounts, Email or Webhooks. Note this applies to WooCommerce 2.3+.

To get started, go to WooCommerce> Settings.

General options

The following is the setting made in the general options tab.

Store location

Country specific, the location of the store you own (for example, where you act as a supplier). It determines the default rate with the customer area.

Place of sale

Choose to sell all countries or specific countries. You have a choice of specific countries or states. You can choose a specific country or state differently.

Default customer address

Select the area where you accept website visitors, before they go there, to evaluate and purchase.

  • Store addresses assume that customers are in the same location as your store

  • The geographical address verifies the current location and then calculates the corresponding tax.


Currency option

Options that affect how prices are displayed on the home page.


Currency: Choose the default currency for the store.

Currency position: Choose the default currency position: Left, Right.

Thousands separator: Choose symbols to use with the thousand separator or 1,000

In the general setting area, the same measurement measurement lets you enter the unit of measurement of the same weight as the item, turning on / off the rating at the product review.


Product ratings

Method of downloading files

Control how the store provides download files to buyers.

  • Force download - Force download using a PHP script. Documentation not available to anyone except the buyer with direct connection concealed.

  • X-Accel-Redirect / X-Sendfile - Like being forced, but it has better execution capabilities that also support larger documents. It requires the hosting provider to support X-Send or X-Accel-Redirect files, so you need to check with them first.

  • Redirecting only - Download URL connects the client to the document. Files are not protected from external access.

Limited access

  • Select if download requires login - Does not apply to purchases from guests

  • Provide access to downloadable products when paid - Agree to grant access to the download when the order is processing, instead of Completed.

Tax settings

Taxation is a complex issue, but WooCommerce aims to make it as simple as possible. To get started, visit: WooCommerce> Settings> Taxes.


The tax tab displays options that are configured to fit the needs you need. The setting you choose is based on the range of tax authorities for which the store is located.
