WooCommerce integration

Step 1: Download our Plugin

The first step to integrating your WooCommerce webshop with Recommend is to download our plugin from the WordPress plugin directory. Simply click on the link provided (https://wordpress.org/plugins/recommend-referral-integration/) and follow the prompts to download and install the plugin onto your website.

Step 2: Activate the Plugin

Once you have successfully downloaded our plugin, navigate to the 'Settings' tab on the left-hand side of your WordPress dashboard. You should see our plugin listed there. Click on it to activate the plugin.

Step 3: Add Your API Token

Now that the plugin is active, you need to add your API token to connect your webshop to our marketing platform. Your API token can be found on the Recommend Business tab -> Integration page under the API keys section. Copy and paste this token into the appropriate field in the plugin settings.

Step 4: Perform Conversion Test

After adding your API token, it's time to perform a conversion test to ensure everything is working correctly. Simply press the 'Testing' button in the plugin settings, and follow the sub steps below:

  1. Find one of the products you have listed on the Recommend page and click on the "Buy Now" button. You will be redirected to your webshop.
  2. Add the product to your shopping cart. This step should complete the testing process.
  3. Navigate back to the Recommend platform and go to the "Analytics" tab, then click on "Conversion Analytics". If the testing process was successful, you should see a conversion pending. By clicking the "+" button next to it, you can see that the conversion is marked as "testing."
  4. If you have successfully completed the conversion test, congratulations! The integration is working, and you can move on to the next step.

**Please inform our team that you have completed the conversion test, and we will double-check from our side that the testing was successful.

Step 5: Provide SKUs for Your Products (preferably via XML product feed)

To enable price notifications for all our shoppers to know when you have discounts, we need a list of the SKUs for the products you have listed on Recommend. It's preferable to provide this list to us via an XML product feed. This will ensure that the integration process is faster and more accurate.

Please provide us with the SKUs or XML product feed as soon as possible, so we can proceed with the integration process. Once we have received this information, we will update your account, and your webshop will be fully integrated with the Recommend platform.

If you have any questions or need assistance with this process, please don't hesitate to contact our support team. We're always here to help you get the most out of our platform!

Step 6: Turn Off Testing Mode and Enable Auto Sync

If the conversion test is successful and the SKUs have been added, we can now turn off testing mode and enable auto-sync in the plugin settings. This will ensure that all product and pricing information is kept up-to-date and accurate.

Congratulations!
