Requirements

WordPress permalinks must be enabled at: Settings > Permalinks.

Generate API keys 

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 are taken to the Key Details screen.
  1. Add a Description.
  2. Select the User you would like to generate a key for in the dropdown.
  3. Select a level of access for this API key — Read access, Write access or Read/Write access.
  4. Select Generate API Key, and WooCommerce creates API keys for that user.

Now that keys have been generated, you should see Consumer Key and Consumer Secret keys, a QRCode, and a Revoke API Key button.

The Consumer Key and Consumer Secret may be entered in the app in Constants.ts file.
