If you have a WooCommerce based webshop, you can import your products in Channable using the WooCommerce API. We can import all your WooCommerce product data from the standard product fields (this means we cannot import custom data fields). Which steps you should follow depends on which version of WooCommerce you're using. If you're unsure which version you're using, you can find the version under WooCommerce > System Status in your WordPress installation. For version 2.4 and up follow step 1a, for earlier versions please follow step 1b.
1a) WooCommerce - Version 2.4+
To get started, go to 'WooCommerce' and click 'Settings'.
Go to the tab Advanced and select the sub-tab REST API. In the sub-tab click the "Add Key" button. For the description we recommend you fill out "Channable" and for the permissions select "Read/Write". After you have filled in these details, click on "Generate API key".
Now copy down the 'Consumer Key' and 'Consumer Secret', you will need these for step 2.
1b) WooCommerce - Version < 2.4
To get started, visit 'Your profile' in the admin menu screen.
Scroll down to find the 'WooCommerce API Keys' section. Tick the 'Generate API Key' checkbox, and click the 'Update Profile' button.
Now that keys have been generated, you should see two keys and a new checkbox in place of the 'Generate API Key' checkbox. These are your Consumer Key, Consumer Secret, and a Revoke API Key checkbox. There is also a box to control the level of access for this API key, set this to Read/Write access.
Creating the import
Now open Channable, open a project and go to 'Setup', create a new import and choose 'New import connection'.
Now choose 'WooCommerce' and fill out the name field as well as the URL of your webshop and the key and secret you have previously generated (and written down).
Important! Remove the "/" at the end of your WooCommerce URL!
For example "http://channable.com" instead of "http://channable.com/".
Finally, select which WooCommerce version you're using. Now click 'Create', select the new connection and click continue.
Congratulations, you have now created your WooCommerce import!
Importing meta fields
Some of the data in your WooCommerce is not automatically picked up by Channable. For example, the GTIN/EAN codes and other meta fields are not imported by default. If you would like to import these extra meta fields, please contact us and we will enable the feature for this. However, enabling this feature will slow down your import considerably as a lot more information will need to be picked up.
