Depending on your setup, there may be a few adjustments that need to be made in order to meet the minimum requirements for Thrive Inventory.
Here are a few things to check:
Verify the spelling of your site URL. Note that http:// is not the same as https:// so be sure to use the correct one!

Review your installed Plug-ins. — Plug-ins (especially security plugins) may interfere with Thrive Inventory's access to the WooCommerce inventory.
Check with your website hosting provider. (GoDaddy, BlueHost, Site5, etc.) — It may be that your hosting provider is blocking Thrive Inventory's access. They would have to add an exception for Thrive Inventory on their end. (See Below for the IP List to send over)
