The fifth minor release of 2021, WooCommerce 5.4, has been officially released! We’ve been hard at work and this release has
This is another minor release and so you should expect everything included to be backwards compatible with the previous version.
As always, we recommend creating a backup of your site and making sure that the themes and plugins are compatible before updating. You can check out this update guide for more information.
What’s new in 5.4?
- jQuery 3 Compatibility: In preparation for WordPress Core’s plan to update jQuery, we have addressed our usage of it accordingly. (#29044)
- WooCommerce Blocks 5.1.0: The package update includes 5.0.0 and 5.1.0. Please note that most content included in Blocks updates is not present in WooCommerce unless the WooCommerce Blocks feature plugin is active.
- WooCommerce Admin 2.3.1: This package update includes a number of fixes and quality of life tweaks.
These are just some of the changes that are included in WooCommerce 5.4. You can find the complete changelog for this release in the changelog.txt file.
Our aim is to maintain backwards compatibility through every release unless otherwise noted. This section contains any alternations that may be noteworthy for developers in pursuit of that.
We’ve added the
dates_are_gmt parameter to coupon, product, and order collection endpoints. When
true, this parameter causes the
before date fields to check
post_date_gmt instead of the local time variant.

[…] WooCommerce 5.4, which was released yesterday, contains a jQuery-related bug that may break payment gateways by providing the wrong data type to a function. You can read more about this bug in the related issue on GitHub. A fix is currently in the works and will be released with WooCommerce 5.4.1. Because of the potential impact this issue could have on merchants, we have reverted to WooCommerce 5.3 as the most stable release. This will help minimize disruption to merchants who have not yet upgraded to version 5.4 while the core team conducts thorough testing of the forthcoming fix release against payment gateways. […]

My Site WordPress/WooCommerce based – crashed after latest update. I’m always nervous when WooCommerce releases new update. My site crashed in the past as well. In the past, I got it resolved by reverting back to previous version and wait for a couple of weeks and updated again – by then something is fixed in WooCommerce. This time it is still same issue. Hope it will work after a week or two when it is fixed.
Sorry to hear this happened. If you’d like to try upgrading to WooCommerce 5.4.1, it is available here: https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/woocommerce.5.4.1.zip
If you’d like to test out new versions before they’re officially released, you can install the WooCommerce Beta Tester plugin in a test environment and use it to switch between different versions. That plugin is available here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-beta-tester/
