WooCommerce 5.3 Release Candidate

We’re excited to announce that the release candidate is now available. We are on track for our planned May 11th release date.

Note that this is a minor release focusing on bug fixes and performance improvements.


  • We’ve updated the default currency for stores to USD to match the change that was included in 5.3 to change the default location of the store to California, US. #29752


If you’d like to dive in and help test this new release, our handy WooCommerce Beta Tester plugin allows you to switch between beta versions and release candidates. You can also download the release from wordpress.org.

A set of testing instructions has been published on our Wiki page in GitHub. We’ve also posted a helpful writeup on beta testing to help get you started.

If you discover any bugs during the testing process, please let us know by logging a report in GitHub.
