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.

More details here also, http://docs.woothemes.com/document/installation-2/

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

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
