Generate API Key:
In order to setup woo commerce integration with Mintsoft the guide is here to generate API keys:
Read / Write!
Please make sure the API key has read & write access - otherwise we will not be able to update orders when shipped, or sync inventory levels
Once generated navigate to Connect > Orders > Woo Commerce
Create a new account and copy the key and secret over from woo commerce.
Store URL on Mintsoft
The URL you use to setup on Mintsoft will depend on the version of woo commerce currently being used.
If the woo commerce version installed is 3.0 or higher then you will need to add /wp-json/wc/v2/ to the end of the URL e.g. https://customerdomain.co.uk/wp-json/wc/v2/
By default please user the following statuses;
Import Status: processing
Picking Status: processing
Despatch Status: completed
It's now possible to supply tracking details to woo commerce but it does require an extra extension to be installed on Woo
Once you have that extension enabled then make sure you enable the "Send Tracking Info" option on the connector - This is on the Advanced tab.

It's possible to map meta values from woo into Mintsoft fields so they can used e.g. Gift Messages, Personalisations etc. To do this you'll need to look at the JSON that we get for an order.
Meta Data exists at two levels:
- Order Level
- Order Item Level
1 - Order Level example:
At the top level you'll find a meta_data node. This is where any custom data stored against the order is found
"label": "Gift Message",
"value": "Happy Birthday Luke"
So in the example above we can see someone has left a gift message which is under the key "gift_message_checkout". So what we would do is setup a meta mapping at Level Order and Map that to the gift message field. So when the order imports it will take the data from that and put in the GiftMessage field against the order
2 - Order Item Level example:
Unrder line_items you'll find meta_data. This is where any custom data etc is usually found
"name": "Custom Mug",
"label": "Personalised Name",
So we can see that in the Example someone has ordered a Mug that can be personalised.
So under the MetaMapping tab you'd setup the following mapping using the key of "personalised_name" and map at OrderItem Level and to NameValue (This will create a name value pair against the order item with name of "Personalised_name" and a value of "Luke"
