Connect Your WooCommerce store to Printful

Follow these steps to connect your WooCommerce store to your Printful account.

Step 1: Upgrade your WooCommerce to the latest version

Some of Printful's features don't work with older versions of Woocommerce. So to connect your store to Printful, you'll need WooCommerce version 2.4.8 or newer.

Step 2: Enable REST API in your WooCommerce settings

1. From the Admin Panel of your store, open "WooCommerce → Settings".
2. Under the “API” tab, check the "Enable the REST API" checkbox.
Enable the REST API

3. Click "Save Changes".

Step 3: Make sure that permalink settings are not set to Default

WooCommerce REST API currently works only when WordPress permalinks are enabled. So in order to use the API, you need to make sure that the Permalink setting is not set to the default value.
The permalink feature depends on your server configuration - if URL rewriting is not available, then the permalinks will not work.

1. Open "Settings → Permalinks"
2. Under "Common Settings" choose any other link structure other than "Default" in order for the WooCommerce API to work.

3. Click "Save Changes"
4. You can now check if the WooCommerce API is working by opening in the browser. If the response contains JSON code with store information, then the API works, otherwise the permalinks are not enabled correctly.

Step 4: Install the Printful plugin

1. Head to your WooComerce site and open up the “Plugins” tab.

2. Add new plugin.
3. Search, Install and Activate the Printful plugin.

Step 5: Connect your WooCommerce to Printful

1. Open the Printful tab and Connect

2. Allow access to the Printful plugin

That's it – you're done!
