Go to Plugins | Add New

Type "Woo Commerce" in the search box

Click the Add button when it comes up.

Did you see their installation guide ?  As above mentioned, you must login and go to plugins page to install manually.

I'm also not sure what you mean by "without access to FTP"

If you cannot install plugins from the repository, you can always download it over http from Wordpress.org or the plugin site and then use the Upload option from Plugins | Add New

That screenshot indicates your WordPress permissions are restricted.  Who installed and configured WordPress?

I also created a related question (different than this current question) to determine if I am an admin user of wordpress.

I don't like it when I see people installing WordPress from any other source than wordpress.org.  These packaged installs can be pre-modified to grant or restrict privileges in strange ways.

How much effort have you sunk into this site already?  Any possibility of deleting at and starting over via https://wordpress.org/download/ ?

I agree with you. There may be problems soon. But i think there will be problems with everything and installing wordpress would take 5 hours.

Anyway 'add new' button just appeared.
So I could add 'woo commerce'
I am not sure if I downloaded the correct 'woo commerce' because there were 3 pages of choices

How would I start 'woo commerce' is a followup question.
