WooCommerce events Integration with external APIs | Connect WooCommerce to third-party platforms

WooCommerce events Integration with external APIs | Connect WooCommerce to third-party platforms


Suppose you have a WooCommerce store on WordPress and you want some actions to happen when an event occurs in the WooCommerce store. We need to integrate WooCommerce events so that actions take place on some events. Automation is something that we all want to make our lives easier so that we don’t spend wasting time on the same redundant tasks every time. If you have an external inventory from where you want to sync products using REST APIs/ endpoints to your WooCommerce site then we can use the WooCommerce webhooks/APIs to update the stock status in the third party inventory whenever a specific action takes place in your store. We will use REST APIs to make calls and pass the data securely between your WordPress and external APIs. Example: If a new order is created or an order is canceled Order details are updated or a new product is added to WooCommerce Inventory or its details are updated then you would need some automation that will update data in accordance with the event that is fired in the backend. Sync WooCommerce customer data by automating the entire order processing.

You will be able to extract data about people and companies from Webhooks API. Connecting Webhooks and WooCommerce will let you achieve numerous integrations which can directly benefit your business growth.
