Before we add WooCommerce, let's make sure your WooCommerce settings will allow Shopventory to connect. There are a few settings WordPress and WooCommerce must have have set before Shopventory can communicate with your WooCommerce site, and Shopventory needs permission to access your WooCommerce product catalog (don't worry, Shopventory will not make any changes without your input).

Step 1: Go to the WordPress Administration section of your WooCommerce site.

Step 2: Go to the Settings -> General section, and copy the URL of your WooCommerce site.

Step 3: You'll be prompted to paste that into Shopventory.

Step 4: Go to the Settings -> Permalinks section, and make sure that the Common Settings are set to anything EXCEPT Plain. Make sure to click "Save Changes" at the bottom of the page if you change this setting.

Step 5: Go to the Users -> Add New section to add a user for Shopventory to use when making updates to your products. Make sure the user has the Administrator role. You can enter any email you want for the email field (Shopventory recommends using your own email). Note that if you already have a user setup for Shopventory to use, you can skip this step.

Step 6: Go to the WooCommerce -> Settings section, then click on the click the Advanced tab from the top menu, click Rest API just below and to the left of Advanced, and then click Add Key.

Step 7: In the "Key Details" form, enter the name "Shopventory" in the description, assign the user you created earlier, and set the Permissions to "Read/Write". Then click "Generate API Key".

Step 8: Copy the Consumer key and Consumer secret of the key you just generated. Make sure you do not close this page until after Shopventory is connected, as the consumer secret will not be shown again and you will have to generate a new key for Shopventory to use!

Step 9: Paste the Consumer key and the Consumer secret that you generated into Shopventory. 

Once you are done just hit the "Add WooCommerce Credential to Shopventory" button and that will complete the connection!
