How to connect your Woocommerce store to Zenstores

In this guide were going to be covering how to connect your WordPress Woocommerce store to your Zenstores account.

A few notes before we continue:

  • You must be using Woocommerce version 2.2 or newer
  • The REST API and pretty permalinks must both be enabled (don't worry¬†¬†if you don't know what this means I'll cover it later)
  • Woocommerce orders will only import into Zenstores if they have a status of processing
  • If you have any domain redirects (http to https for example) please make sure that you use your actual end domain in step 12.
  • If you are using any cache system such as varnish please ensure you disable the caching system for the woocommerce REST API endpoints.

4. This will load up a System status  page, just have a look and check that your version of Woocommerce is higher than 2.2. If it isn't then you will either need to update your plugin to a version higher than 2.2 or talk to your site developer for advice on how to do this.
