  2. Select Add Key. You are taken to the Key Details screen.

  3. Add a Description.

  4. Select the User you would like to generate a key for in the dropdown. (This can be your own user account on Wordpress)

  5. Select a level of access for this API key β€” Read access

  6. Select Generate API Key, and WooCommerce creates API keys for that user.

Now that keys have been generated, you should see Consumer Key and Consumer Secret keys, a QRCode, and a Revoke API Key button.

The Consumer Key and Consumer Secret may be entered in Link My Books:
