IMPORTANT: this document describes installing ShippingEasy’s v1.x plugin for WooCommerce; however, we recommend using ShippingEasy's v3.x plugin for WooCommerce.
To integrate your WooCommerce store with ShippingEasy you'll need to access your account's Settings tab. Alternatively, if you are integrating your store during account registration, you can skip to step 3, below.
- In the Settings tab, click on the STORES & ORDERS page under the INTEGRATION section.
- Once there, click on the the + Add New button on the side of the screen.
- Select WooCommerce from the platform drop down. You will then see one additional field: Store URL.
Copy and paste the URL for your WooCommerce store into the Store URL field:
Then click the Save button.
- On the next screen you can fill in the settings you want ShippingEasy to use for this store: name, address, etc. Then click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
- Your new store is displayed on the Store settings page. Click the link to download the ShippingEasy plugin for WooCommerce:
- Now that you have downloaded the latest ShippingEasy plugin, go to the administration panel of your WordPress blog. Check the list of installed plugins by clicking the Plugins link on the left side. If you have never installed the ShippingEasy plugin before, you can go to step 7.
If an older version of the ShippingEasy plugin is installed, remove it by clicking the Deactivate link:
Then click the Delete link:
Then click the button to confirm the delete:
- Under Plugins, click the Add New link in the left side menu:
- On the Install page, click the Upload link:
- Click the Choose File button:
- In the file selection dialog, select the folder that contains the se_woocommerce.zip file that was downloaded in step 5. On Windows, depending on your browser, this is typically the Downloads folder (a similar folder is used on Macs). Click the entry for se_woocommerce.zip and then click the Open button:
- Click the Install Now button:
- After the installation completes, click the Activate Plugin link:
- After the installation finishes, click the ShippingEasy link in the left menu of your WordPress administration panel:
- There are three fields that you will fill in with values that you copy from your settings in ShippingEasy:
- In another browser window, click on the STORES & ORDERS section of the SETTINGS tab in ShippingEasy and find the entry for your WooCommerce store. It has a line that says "Store API Key":
- Copy the Store API Key from the ShippingEasy store settings page to the Store API Key field on your WordPress administration panel:
- Click on the API CREDENTIALS section of the Settings tab in ShippingEasy:
It has two entries, API Key and API Secret:
- Copy the "API Key" from the ShippingEasy settings page to the Customer "API Key" field in your WordPress administration panel:
- Copy the "API Secret" from the ShippingEasy settings page to the "Customer Secret Key" field in your WordPress administration panel:
- Check the Order Statuses that you want to pull into ShippingEasy (most likely you'll check "Processing", then any others you know that you use). Click the Save Changes button and you're done.
Note: You'll only use the "Clear ShippingEasy Logs" drop-down when directed by ShippingEasy Support. For curiosity's sake, this clears the list of "Most Recent Order Sent to ShippingEasy" data you see below the "ShippingEasy Settings" on the page. This helps our team troubleshoot issues you're experiencing with the plug-in.
