“To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often” - this is one of my favourites quotes said by Winston Churchill. It describes not only all routine that surrounds us but directly refers to the current eCommerce world. The point is when you want to succeed in the niche, there is a strong necessity to be aware of all tech novelties and be able to adjust to market’s conditions immediately.

So, in case if you provide services in such industries as mobile commerce, inventory, data feed, mobile apps builder, repricing, order management, etc., connection to WooCommerce or other platforms is crucial. Application Programming Interface rushes to help in establishing integration, it performs fast and secure data gathering at once.

WooCommerce and Its REST API

WooCommerce has deserved to be among industry front-runner as it powers over 250 thousands of eCommerce stores. Integrating with this solution you can enhance the number of potential clients with all shop owners in no time. Believe it or not, but API will help to retrieve, add, update, delete and sync all needed data from the customers’ stores in order to process it within your business system.

The platform’s REST API is available from WooCommerce 2.1 or higher and has 2 authentication methods: oAuth 1.1 and basic HTTP. You are required to use the oAuth method in case if there is no valid SSL certificate and Basic HTTP method - if the secure checkout is enabled. In order to access WooCommerce API, there is a need to generate the unique API Key and API Password. For more information visit platform’s page.
