Connecting Your Store
You can add any number of WooCommerce stores to your ReadyToShip account.
Login to your WordPress account and go to WooCommerce ⇒ Settings.
Select the Advanced tab.
Click Legacy API
Ensure the Legacy API is enabled as shown:
Click Save Changes
Click Rest API
Click the Add Key button.
Enter a description like "ReadyToShip".
Select a User from the list and set the Permissions to Read/Write. The key you create needs to be assigned to a user of your WordPress account. You can select any user or you can create one specifically for this purpose.
Click the Generate API Key button to generate your keys. Keep the WooCommerce window open - you will need to copy these values.
Return to ReadyToShip and go to Settings ⇒ Stores.
Click Add Store.
Enter the URL of your store and copy the Consumer Key and Consumer Secret that you created earlier.
If we were able to connect to your store successfully you will be taken to the next step.
Provide a descriptive name for the store or stores in the Store Description field. Each store can have a different return address which is useful if you are have multiple business names or distribution centres. You need to fill out a valid Return Address – most carriers won’t work properly without one.
Click Save WooCommerce Store and ReadyToShip will start importing orders right away. This step can take several minutes to complete depending on how many orders are in your store.
Add Shipment Tracking Information to your Orders
If you would like to add parcel tracking information to emails, the order tracking page, and the order view page then you need to install the two modules below:
- Purchase and install the WooThemes module for Shipment Tracking. Please note that this module was not developed by ReadyToShip.
- Install the ReadyToShip tracking module. This is a free module developed by us.
You have now completed adding your WooCommerce store.
You may also have to complete the Carrier Mapping step. For more information, see our guide to Carrier Mapping.
