Surely you have already installed WordPress on your server. If you don't installed it yet and you are new to WP and have problems installing it, you might want to check out following tips.
You need to download theme files after you've purchased the it. Following image describes downloads section of the item and you have 2 download choices.

Go to the Appearance => Themes and activate another theme than Acerola such as TwentyTwelve, TwentyThirteen or Acerola child theme. Delete the old version of the theme because folder name existing error comes up when we try to install it without deletion. Then install the theme again as you see early in this documentation.
Usually updating a theme means replacing the old files with the new ones. You can see changelog.txt file from the new download archive and you can get updated files list as modified/added and deleted. Upload and overwrite those files on your theme directory.
If theme changed lots of files and you really hard to collect changed files, there is a better way to do it when it comes to WordPress themes.
WordPress treats two version of the same theme as different themes. That is, if you have Acerola v1.2 and v1.3 in your wp-content/themes folder they are treated as two different themes independent of each other.
That means you can have multiple version of the same theme installed on your blog. So whenever there is a new version of your theme available, instead of replacing or deleting the files of the older version follow this procedure.
The main advantage of following the above procedure is you can quickly switch back to the old version of the theme if you find any problems with the new version or if it clashes with any plugins you are using.

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of WooCommerce log in to your WordPress admin panel and go to: Plugins > Add New. In the search field type “WooCommerce” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found the plugin you can view details about it such as the the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking Install Now. After clicking that link you will be asked if you’re sure you want to install the plugin. Click “yes” and WordPress will automatically complete the installation. It’s possible at this stage that you will be taken to a page requesting the FTP details of your webserver. This will be the case if you’ve not installed a plugin on this particular installation of WordPress before. If so, simply fill in your details to complete the installation..
The manual installation involves downloading the plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application.
After you’ve installed and activated the plugin, be sure to select ‘Install WooCommerce Pages‘ to get started.
If you need more detailed documentation of WooCommerce usage, you should visit this link and get your information.
