To use curl in WordPress/WooCommerce, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install and activate the "WooCommerce REST API" plugin in your WordPress/WooCommerce website.
  2. Generate API keys by going to WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > REST API in your WordPress dashboard. Click on the "Add key" button to generate API keys.
  3. Once you have your API keys, you can use curl to make API requests to interact with your WooCommerce website. Here is an example of how you can use curl to retrieve products from your WooCommerce store:
1
curl -X GET   https://yourwebsite.com/wp-json/wc/v3/products   -u consumer_key:consumer_secret


Replace https://yourwebsite.com with the URL of your WordPress website and consumer_key:consumer_secret with your actual consumer key and consumer secret.

  1. You can use curl commands to make various API requests such as creating, updating, deleting products, orders, customers, etc. For example, to create a new product in your WooCommerce store, you can use a curl command like this:
1
2
3
4
5
6
curl -X POST   https://yourwebsite.com/wp-json/wc/v3/products   -u consumer_key:consumer_secret   -H 'Content-Type: application/json'   -d '{
    "name": "New Product",
    "type": "simple",
    "regular_price": "10.00",
    "description": "This is a new product"
  }'


These are just examples of how you can use curl in WordPress/WooCommerce to interact with the REST API. Make sure to refer to the WooCommerce REST API documentation for a complete list of available endpoints and parameters.
