How to connect your WooCommerce store to Marketcube?

In this article, you will learn how to connect your WooCommerce store to Marketcube, how to sync products & how to disconnect your live store from Marketcube if you wish to do so.

What is Live Connect?

'Live Connect' allows you the ability to connect to your store. Allowing you to manage your products and orders from within your own store. This also ensures that inventory, price, and product changes as well as order updates are kept in sync between your own store and the marketplace.

REQUIREMENTS TO LIVE CONNECT

To connect your WooCommerce store through Live Connect you require Shop Domain, Consumer Secret & Consumer Key. To access this information,  Navigate to your WooCommerce store.

  • Consumer Secret & Consumer Key
    • Navigate to your WooCommerce plugin.
    • Click on the Settings option in the drop-down list.
    • Click the Advanced tab option on the far right.
    • Click on the REST API option.
    • Below appears a button with Add key written on it.

    • The above step prompts three text fields tagged as  'Description', 'User' and 'Permissions'.
    • Click on Generate Key button. This generates and displays the Consumer key and Consumer secret which can be copied for further use.
    • Description field intakes any custom name for the API key. The user basically accepts one among all the Users created. Permissions are a selection between Read, Write and Read/Write permission. It would be preferred to have Read/Write selected while creating the key.


HOW TO CONNECT SHOP

Live connect initializes when you connect your WooCommerce vendor Store through Marketcube. 

  • Login as a Vendor in Marketcube.
  • Navigate to the Products page & click on 'Add Products'. 

  • Select the option from the dropdown "Import products by connecting to as WooCommerce store".

  • Upon selection of the above-mentioned option from the drop-down menu. Three text fields appear seeking Shop Domain, Consumer Key, and Consumer Secret. All three fields are mandatory
  •  Connect your Shop post by entering the required details as shared in the screenshot. 
  • Upon fulfilling the required fields, click on Connect in the bottom right corner.

  • A modal pops up displaying the Terms and Conditions. After a thorough read, scroll below to accept the terms & conditions by clicking on the check box click on "Continue to Vendor Live Connect".

  • Voila! You are connected to your WooCommerce store.🎊🎉. 

PRODUCT FLOW

Once live connected, products created on the vendor WooCommerce Store will sync to Marketcube.

There are two ways this can happen (A Manual import or an auto-import).

  1. Manual Import
  • Click the Import products from your store.

  • Your product sync will run in the background. You can now view the products.

  • To add the products to your marketplace operator account use line by line Manage action or you can use the bulk add function by selecting multiple products. Imported products will be deleted after 15 days, and imported again to get them back.

  • On your account, you can see Connect Shop under the Actions panel on the Products Page. With the newly added products showing as new. Now your operator can push these products to their marketplace store.

2. Auto Sync of Products

All the products will get automatically synced to your marketplace if the Auto Add products feature (explained below)  is enabled. 

  • Navigate to the Settings tab on Marketcube. 
  • Click on the Show option on the Products card which displays an option of Live Inventory Update.

Clicking on it prompts a feature to enable auto sync of products to Marketcube.

    1. If this feature is disabled, all the products created on vendor WooCommerce will not automatically sync into  Marketcube. Products can be imported by using the Import Products From your WooCommerce Store button as explained above.
    2. If this feature is Enabled, all the products created on vendor WooCommerce will automatically sync into  Marketcube.


HOW TO DISCONNECT THE SHOP

Finally, the vendor can also disconnect the live connected store.

  • The user can navigate to the add Products page and select the option that says ‘Import products by connecting to a WooCommerce store’. If you have a store connected then clicking on the Disconnect shop option opens a modal confirming the disconnection.

  • The second way to disconnect is by clicking on the Store Settings. Then select the Disconnect Shop (as shown in the screenshot).  


Key points to remember:-

  • Products and Orders take some time to sync both ways. Please be patient.
  • Double-check your shop domain, consumer key, and consumer secret if you get an error while connecting your store.
  • Shopify allows only three options in a variant so if a variant on Woo Commerce store has more than three options, then the product will not sync into Marketcube
