To connect your Inventory Planner account to your WooCommerce shop, you'll need the following information available:

  • Shop URL

  • WooCommerce Key

  • WooCommerce Secret

Here is more information if you need help locating this information:

Shop URL

We recommend specifying the full URL of your WooCommerce installation. Always use https:// to make sure your data is transferred over a secure connection (though you can use http:// for development/test stores).

Enabling the REST API

To enable the REST API within WooCommerce, visit WooCommerce > Settings, click into the API tab and tick the Enable REST API checkbox.


You must enable WordPress permalinks in Settings > Permalinks.

Generating API keys

The WooCommerce REST API uses 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, click Add key:

Choose 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 Read access, Write access or Read/Write access. Then click the Generate API Key button to prompt WooCommerce to 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. The two keys are your Consumer Key and Consumer Secret. Make a note of them.

Connecting WooCommerce and Inventory Planner

Once you've generated your keys, log into Inventory Planner. Go to Account > Settings > Connections & warehouses, then click "+ New Connection" at the bottom of the page.

Choose the WooCommerce connector, then fill in the Shop URL, Consumer Key and Consumer Secret you saved earlier. Click "Connect" to initiate the connection.
