Enable REST API & Generate API keys

To enable the REST API with in WooCommerce, go to WooCommerce> Settings> Advanced and tick the Enable Legacy API link .

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 specific WordPress user:

Go to: WooCommerce> Settings> Advanced> REST API

1) Select Add Key
2) Select the user you would like to generate a key for, in the user file and add a description.
3)Choose the desired level of access for this API key , which can be Read access, Write access or Read/Write access.
4)Select the Generate API key button and WooCommwrce will generate API keys for that certain user.

Once the keys have been generated, you will see two new keys, a QRCode and a Revoke API Key button. These two keys are your Consumer Key and Consumer Secret.

5) Place your site link, consumer key and consumer secret in the mobile application config file that uses the WooCommerce API.
