Enabling the REST API

It’s required turn on the WordPress permalinks on Settings > Permalinks.
Generating API keys
The WooCommerce REST API works on a key system to control access. These keys are linked to WordPress users on your website.
To create or manage keys for a specific WordPress user, go to WooCommerce > Settings > API > Keys/Apps.
To get started, select Add Key:
Select the User you would like to generate a key for in the User field and add a Description. Choose the level of access for this API key, which can be Readaccess, Write access or Read/Write access. Then select the Generate API Key button and WooCommerce will generate API keys for that user.
Now that keys have been generated, you should see two new keys, a QRCode, and a Revoke API Key button. These two keys are your Consumer Key and Consumer Secret.
Place your consumer key and consumer secret in the form on the top of the page.
