Linking your WooCommerce webshop to ChannelDock is done in seconds. In this article, you will learn how.
Before linking WooCommerce to ChannelDock:
Make sure the item number of your products in WooCommerce is filled in with the EAN code of your products.

This WooCommerce plug-in ensures that your products get an extra field in WooCommerce specifically for the EAN number. Please note: for products with multiple variations, the main product should also get an EAN value. This value may be fictitious. If the main product does not have an EAN, there is a chance that the variation products will not be imported.

Do you have a multilingual WooCommerce webshop via WPML? Then the linking process is slightly different. In that case you link your WooCommerce webshop by copying the API keys to ChannelDock. You can find these API keys in WooCommerce webshop via 'WooCommerce > Settings > Advanced > REST API.

- Click on the green 'Connect channel' button. You will now be redirected to WooCommerce.
- You may now need to log in to WooCommerce before you can proceed with the linking process. When the linking screen appears, click 'Approve'.
