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:

  1. Go to: WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > REST API.
    Note: Keys/Apps was found at **WooCommerce > Settings > API > Key/Apps **prior to WooCommerce 3.4.
  2. Select** Add Key**. You’ll be taken to the Key Details screen.
  3. Add a Description.(HeiChat-read)
  4. Select the User you would like to generate a key for in the dropdown.
  5. Select a level of access for this API key:
    • Read access,
  6. Select Generate API Key, and WooCommerce creates API keys for that user.
  7. Now that keys have been generated, you should see Consumer Key and **Consumer Secret **keys, a QRCode, and a “Revoke Key” button.
  8. The Consumer Key and Consumer Secret may be entered in the application you’ll be connecting to using the WooCommerce REST API. The the app should also request your URL.
