If you are running an existing and older version of the Shopp 1.3.x platform, then you can update via your WordPress dashboard.
Login to your WP dashboard (WP-admin) and go to Plugins. Look for Shopp in the list of plugins and you’ll see an update notice. Click Update Now and your Shopp plugin will be updated. If there are updates for any add-ons such as payment gateways or shipping services, then you should also update those extensions.
