Test your WooCommerce integration

Test our WooCommerce integration by pulling sample data to a test Company

Codat recommends that you test your integration before sending Link URLs to customers.

  • Set up a test company in the Codat Portal.
  • Generate a Link URL to connect your test company to your online store.
  • Retrieve commerce data.


Before you start to test WooCommerce, make sure that you've:

  • Set up the WooCommerce integration.
  • Created an online store to test the integration or have access to an online store you can connect to the Portal. Note that you don't have to use WooCommerce store for testing, but if you choose to, you may be required to pay additional charges. Please visit WooCommerce website for more details.
  • Updated your sync settings to enable commerce data types.
