Connecting your WooCommerce store to Countr will take you about 15 minutes in total and can be done in a few easy steps. Once you've followed the steps in this article, you will have imported your existing WooCommerce products and customers into your POS app and have set up order sync.
Step 1: Enable REST API
Sign in to the Admin Dashboard of your WooCommerce store. Go to WooCommerce>Settings>General>APIs and enable the Enable Rest API checkbox.
Scroll down and save the changes
Step 2: generate API key and secret
The WooCommerce REST API works on a key system to control access. These keys are linked to WordPress users on your website. To create keys for a specific WordPress user, go to WooCommerce > Settings > General > APIs > Key/Apps > Add key.
Please fill the description, choose the user, and select 'Read/Write' on the permissions drop down menu. When you finish, click "Generate API key' button.
Now that the keys have been generated, you should see your Consumer key, Consumer secret, and a QRcode. Copy your consumer key and secret to your clipboard, you will need them later on in the process.
Step 3: Permalinks
Visit Settings > Permalinks. Please change permalink settings from 'Default' to another setting such as 'Post name' and save your changes. Default permalinks will not work.
Step 4: Enter the details in your Countr dashboard
Log in to your Online Dashboard and on the left side menu, click Account > Integration.
Select the WooCommerce integration and you will see 3 fields. Please fill out:
- Your consumer key The one you generated in Step 2
- Your consumer secret The one you generated in Step 2
- The URL of your Woo shop Fill the URL of the Woo shop you want us to connect to (please include the http:// or https://)
Once you are done, hit 'Save'. Now please refresh your browser.
Congratulations! All your products on WooCommerce will be synced automatically to your Countr dashboard. If you have any questions about this, please send us a message at email@example.com.
