To use the WooCommerce API, follow these steps:

  1. Obtain API credentials: Log in to your WooCommerce dashboard and navigate to WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > REST API. Generate API keys by clicking on the "Add Key" button and fill in the required fields.
  2. Install a REST API client: You can use Postman, Insomnia, or any other REST API client to make requests to the WooCommerce API.
  3. Set up API authentication: In your REST API client, set the authentication method to Basic Auth and enter your API key as the username and API secret as the password.
  4. Make API requests: You can now make API requests to interact with your WooCommerce store. Some examples of API endpoints you can use include fetching products, orders, customers, and more.
  5. Handle API responses: Parse the API responses to extract the relevant information and use it in your application as needed.
  6. Ensure security: Keep your API credentials secure and do not expose them in public or insecure environments to prevent unauthorized access to your WooCommerce store.


By following these steps, you can effectively utilize the WooCommerce API to interact with your store programmatically.
